Skip to comments.Obama Nominates Cop Killer Advocate to Head DOJ Civil Rights Division

In 1982, former Black Panther Mumia Abu-Jamal was convicted of murdering Philadelphia Police Officer Daniel Faulkner. Abu-Jamal never denied the killing during his trial. He, and his supporters, are still unapologetic for Faulkner's death. More on this from Matthew Vadum:
The question of Abu-Jamals guilt is not a close call, according to John Fund. Two hospital workers testified that Abu-Jamal confessed to them: I shot the motherf***er, and I hope the motherf***er dies. His brother, William, has never testified to his brothers innocence even though he was at the scene of the crime. Abu-Jamal himself chose not to testify in his own defense.
As Faulkner tried to arrest Abu-Jamals brother during a traffic stop, Abu-Jamal shot the policeman once in the back and then stood over him and shot him four more times at close range, once directly in the face. Multiple eyewitnesses were present during the crime.
One of those unapologetic supporters is former NAACP Legal Defense Official Debo P. Adegbile, who has worked tirelessly to free guilty murderer Abu-Jamal from prison. President Obama has nominated Adegbile to head the Department of Justice Civil Rights Division as an assistant attorney general to replace radical Tom Perez, who is now the Secretary of Labor. Adegbile is sure to continue carrying out the radical racial agenda of President Obama and Attorney General Eric Holder with the weight of the law behind him.
After the Supreme Court threw out the Beard v. Abu-Jamal case in 2010, a petition was circulated calling for President Obama and Attorney General Holder to investigate the long history of civil rights and constitutional violations" in Abu-Jamal's case. If Adegbile is confirmed, it is likely he will open up an investigation into the Abu-Jamal case, despite multiple court rulings over the past three decades upholding his murder conviction.
On the voting front, there are many concerns about how Adegbile will enforce or change the law. In June 2013, the Supreme Court struck down Section 4 of the Voting Rights Act as unconstitutional, allowing states to change their voting laws without prior approval from the Justice Department. Attorney General Eric Holder has essentially ignored the ruling.Through his extensive work at the NAACP and in arguments before the Supreme Court, Adegbile has made it clear he does not believe civil rights apply to whites.
Not surprisingly, the mainstream media seems to be less interested in Adegbile's radical ties and more interested in his role on Sesame Street as a child actor. USA Today: Obama taps ex-Sesame Street actor for Justice post
Not every child actor grows up to be a high-ranking Justice Department official, but Debo P. Adegbile has a chance to do just that.
Adegbile, who appeared on Sesame Street during the 1970s, has been nominated to be the new assistant attorney general for civil rights; President Obama submitted the nomination to the Senate on Monday.
If confirmed, Adegbile would replace Tom Perez, the new secretary of labor.
The Los Angeles Times reported on Adegbile's previous career:
"When he was 4 or 5, a friend noticed an ad seeking children to audition for Sesame Street. Adegbile landed the job and played the part of Debo, a child of the Sesame Street neighborhood, until high school.
Adegbile will testify in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee Wednesday at 10 am et. You can watch live here.
This is insulting to all decent people. Obama's officially a jerk.
He’s spitting in our faces. He’s not even hiding his disdain for us anymore, it’s just outright contempt.
This is what our so called, Department of “Justus” has become.
I trust he’ll sail right through the senate thanks to Hairy Reed?
I guess if Holder were not attorney general, his excellency would appoint him to that spot.
The hits just keep on coming...
Can’t comment now.
Too disgusted to think straight.
“The hits just keep on coming...”
From President Rodman.
One further substantiation that the part of the Current Regime supposedly responsible for law enforcement on the national level has truly become the Department of Just-Us.
And yet another part of the basic contract that elected representatives were supposed to be held to in their dealings with the people residing in the territory once known as “the United States of America” has just been tossed out the window.
This is no longer in the name of “Civil Liberty”, it is a blatant, in-your-face, smash-mouth, thumb-to-nose, kick-in-the-groin, insult to the traditions and body of established law that once governed this land. Men are no longer exalted for their stainless record, but for their arrest records, and support for the “oppressed” who in large part, induced their own personal grief.
Following the 2016 election, one of the first official acts of the conservative voted President should be to fire every single one of these lowlifes that barry installed.
That is a absolute must
How much more will we have to put up with from this piece of sh*t president.
We haven’t seen anything yet; the last 12-18mos will be unbelievable.
The new President and the new Attorney General should also bring indictments against every one of them!!!!
You can bet on it. I also no more that three Republicans will vote against him. I actually think that it will be two, but, I will go out on a limb and say three.
another example of the juvenile narcissistic “revenge” factor....the I’ll show you maneuver of a child. This Friday’s document drop should be interesting.
