Holder Will Not Investigate "His People"

Voter Intimidation

Hey folks,

Happy Wednesday to you. Glad you stopped by today. You DO remember the 2008 Elections? Right? Those Historic Elections when the American People Elected the first Black President? Those Elections that had the New Black Panther Party dressing up in all Black, and in some cases Camo, and standing at Polling Places, in some cases blocking the entrance way to get into the Polling Places, carrying Night Sticks? You DO remember the Videos? Right? You DO remember the countless written complaints? Right? The complaints that they said to some, "You better be Voting for Obama." And to some White Voters, "Your time is over." "Now you will know what it's like to be ruled by the Black Man. Cracker." You do remember that right?

So what happened in these CLEAR cases of Voter Intimidation? Even some of those cases that was brought into Court? NOTHING. Why? Because the Obama Administration and the Eric Holder Justice Department decided that they would not prosecute "Their People." As a matter of fact, some predominate Attorneys actually QUIT, when Eric Holder ORDERED them to drop the cases. After Eric Holder, acting on orders from Obama, told the Justice Department that they would no longer Prosecute Cases where the Defendants were Black.

Videos, Written Testimonies, in one case I remember, one group even admitted that they were there. They claimed that they were there to make sure that Black People had the Right to Vote. {Sigh} With Night Sticks?

But then again, you really can't blame Eric Holder. They are "His people." They are Black, he is Black. He is not going to Prosecute "His people." Whoa, wait a second. That's Racist. You can't say that Pete. That's Racist. Just because they are Black and He is Black? He is the head of the Justice Department. They are here to enforce the Laws. They are the justice Department for ALL Americans. "His people?" You can't say that. I'm not. He is. I'm not kidding.

Attorney General Eric Holder finally got fed up Tuesday with claims that the Justice Department went easy in a voting rights case against members of the New Black Panther Party because they are African American.

Holder's frustration over the criticism became evident during a House Appropriations subcommittee hearing as Rep. John Culberson (R-Texas) accused the Justice Department of failing to cooperate with a Civil Rights Commission investigation into the handling of the 2008 incident in which Black Panthers in intimidating outfits and wielding a club stood outside a polling place in Philadelphia.

The Attorney General seemed to take personal offense at a comment Culberson read in which former Democratic activist Bartle Bull called the incident the most serious act of voter intimidation he had witnessed in his career.

"Think about that," Holder said. "When you compare what people endured in the South in the 60s to try to get the right to vote for African Americans, and to compare what people were subjected to there to what happened in Philadelphia—which was inappropriate, certainly that…to describe it in those terms I think does a great disservice to people who put their lives on the line, who risked all, for my people," said Holder, who is black.
Democratic activist Bartle Bull. Here is a guy that attempted to get the First Black Man Elected in Mississippi. He has told stories of Noses hanging on Trees. He got Death Threats, ETC. But he has testified that he has NEVER, in his vast experience, NEVER, saw a Polling Place Entrance BLOCKED by Armed Thugs. So YES. This IS "the most serious act of voter intimidation he had witnessed in his career" Then Eric Holder says this. At least he DOES admit that the Panthers were wrong to be there. Yeah, Voter Intimidation is WRONG. You Idiot.
Holder noted that his late sister-in-law, Vivian Malone Jones, helped integrate the University of Alabama.

"To compare that kind of courage, that kind of action, and to say that the Black Panther incident wrong thought it might be somehow is greater in magnitude or is of greater concern to us, historically, I think just flies in the face of history and the facts.," Holder said with evident exasperation.
Now remember, Video, Written Testimonies, a FORMER Attorney for the Justice Department Testifying that he was instructed to not Prosecute Cases where the Defendants are Black.

In a series of questions and comments earlier in the hearing, Culberson insisted that race had infected the decision-making process. "There’s clearly evidence, overwhelming evidence, that your Department of Justice refuses to protect the rights of anybody other than African Americans to vote," the Texas Republican said. "There's a pattern of a double standard here."

“I would disagree very vehemently with the notion that there’s overwhelming evidence that that is in fact true,” Holder replied. “This Department of Justice does not enforce the law in a race-conscious way.”
{Sigh} This guy is not even doing a good job at lying here. Even one of the biggest Racists in Congress admits that the Panthers should not have been there.

Rep. Chaka Fattah, a Democrat from Philadelphia, said the Black Panthers "should not have been there." But he said the GOP was making too much out of a fleeting incident involving a couple of people.

"The most unethical thing a person can do is make allegations based on absolutely nothing," Fattah said. "The only issue of race is singling out this particular decision...That this rises to national significance is bogus on its face."
{Laughing} So they should not have been there. This was Wrong. However, even though wrong EQUALS Illegal in this case, we will not prosecute "his people." Well, I guess that would be "our people." Yes they were there. Yes it was wrong. Wrong in this case equals Illegal. Yet, these "allegations based on absolutely nothing." Huh? There is YOUR Justice Department folks.
