Welcome once again to more Obama “Change You Can Believe In”. This is truly an “Obamination”.
The Obama Department of Justice has dropped the case against members of the New Black Panthers in the voter intimidation case in Philly. So the Obama DOJ does not think voter intimidation is a big deal, huh? According to the Washington Times, Justice Department political appointees overruled career lawyers and ended a civil complaint against members of the NBPP. This is the “CHANGE” you voted for. Voter intimidation is perfectly okay when it is a member of the New Black Panthers dressed in military-style uniforms wilding night sticks. Imagine, just imagine if these were white skin heads doing the same. Oh wait, that did occur in 1960’s Mississippi which gave rise to laws preventing such actions from taking place.
No voter intimidation here
Justice Department political appointees overruled career lawyers and ended a civil complaint accusing three members of the New Black Panther Party for Self-Defense of wielding a nightstick and intimidating voters at a Philadelphia polling place last Election Day, according to documents and interviews.
Career lawyers pursued the case for months, including obtaining an affidavit from a prominent 1960s civil rights activist who witnessed the confrontation and described it as “the most blatant form of voter intimidation” that he had seen, even during the voting rights crisis in Mississippi a half-century ago.
As the Right Wing News states, disenfranchisement and voter intimidation is a different story when its Democrats being prevented from having their votes count. The Black Panthers supported which candidate again?
Remember the uproar during the 2004 presidential election about supposed voter disenfranchisement and voter intimidation that allegedly took place in Florida. Reports of blacks being stopped at police roadblocks and turned away from voting places? The Civil Rights Commission as well as numerous media outlets descended on the state in an attempt to validate the rumors. The story remains an urban myth to this day despite the fact that no evidence of any of that taking place was found.
Watch the videos and determine for yourself whether this is not voter intimidation. Because ever place one votes, there needs to be a member of the Black panthers with a night stick in their hands. We were supposed to believe that color didn’t matter in an Obama Administration. Wake up folks because Obama just condoned voter intimidation as long as they back him. What a message this sends. WAKE UP AMERICA … The only CHANGE that took place in the Presidential Election of 2008 was that the shoe is on the other foot.
Michelle blogged about this yesterday, and the Washington Times reports today that the Department of Justice has taken the “unprecedented” step of dropping a case which they had already won by default judgment. Political appointees at Justice pressured career prosecutors into giving up on the case of voter intimidation by the New Black Panthers group in Philadelphia, who attempted to frighten voters away from the polls in the presidential election.
I contacted one of the DOJ lawyers, Spencer Fisher, who signed his name to the voluntary dismissal order. He referred me to Public Affairs. Spokesman Alejandro Miyar told me that the DOJ dropped the cases against Jackson nutball Malik Shabazz “after careful review.” I asked what new evidence caused the Obama DOJ to make such an unprecedented move. He said he “wasn’t a lawyer” and would try and find out. Good luck with that.
