Skip to comments.New Black Panther Dismissal is Sleeper Issue for 2010 Midterms
Posted on 07/06/2010 2:39:48 PM PDT by Qbert
Earlier today I had the opportunity to attend the United States Commission on Civil Rights hearing on the U.S. Department of Justice and the New Black Panther Party litigation. The testimony by the hearing's lone witness, former DoJ lawyer J. Christian Adams, was nothing short of extraordinary.
During the 2008 presidential election, members of the New Black Panther Party were caught on videotape brandishing a nightstick and hurling racial taunts at white and black voters as they sought entry to a polling station in Philadelphia.
Following the irrefutable evidence caught on film of voter intimidation, the Department of Justice filed a lawsuit against three individuals and the Black Panther Party itself for violating Section 11(b) of the Voting Rights Act which prohibits intimidation, threats and coercion. When none of the named defendants nor the New Black Panther Party showed up for trial in April 2009, a default judgment was entered in favor of the government.
Here's where things get interesting. After the government had won its case in the absence of the defense to present itself, the Department of Justice abruptly changed course and sought to voluntarily dismiss the charges against three of the defendants while giving a slap on the hand to another by telling him that he was not able to go to Philadelphia polling stations through the 2012 elections. The big question as to why the Department of Justice would drop the charges on a clear-cut case of voter intimidation startled many; in today's commission hearing, I think we found the answer that had so far been elusive.
In emotional testimony, J. Christian Adams, until last week a member of the DoJ's Voting Section he resigned in protest over the department's handling of the case told a stunned hearing room why he felt the case had been dropped. In no uncertain terms, Adams noted that senior officials within the Obama Justice Department had told employees that they were not to bring voting-rights cases where the alleged victim in the case was white. In other words, white transgressor and black victim, bring it on. Black transgressor and white victim? Forget about it.
I will let Adams speak for himself; his words were electric and disturbing. Long ignored by the traditional media, the Philadelphia Inquirer and other outlets have begun to question the Obama administration about its apparent inability to adjudicate justice blind of race or ideology. If Adamss claim that the Department of Justice has instructed officials to ignore cases in which blacks victimize whites to focus on white-on-black cases, this will be the sleeper issue that could explode to toss the Democrats out of office in 2010 and 2012.
Americans have struggled with issues of race and equality since our founding. If America's first black president and attorney general have been found to selectively prosecute members of one race while ignoring members of another based strictly on the color of skin rather than the color of law, they will have foolishly fanned the flames of racial suspicion while tarnishing the legacy of civil rights pioneers who sought a color-blind society. It is time for the Department of Justice to fully account for its failure to prosecute members of the New Black Panther Party for their apparent crimes. Would the Obama administration recklessly use the force and weight of our scales of justice to charge whites while providing a free pass to blacks for committing the same offense to score political points? Let us all hope and pray the answer is no while the evidence before us indicates another answer to the question.
Malik Zulu Shabazz, chairman of the New Black Panther Party for Self-Defense (NBPP):
"We believe in a Black first philosophy and a Black Liberation Theology."
SEAN HANNITY: But Reverend Jeremiah Wright is not backing down and has not for years and in his strong stance on the teaching of black liberation theology is nothing new. He had the same things to say last spring when he appeared on "Hannity & Colmes:"
WRIGHT: If you're not going to talk about theology in context, if you're not going to talk about liberation theology that came out of the '60s, systematized black liberation theology that started with Jim Cone in 1968 and the writings of Cone and the writings of Dwight Hopkins and the writings of womynist theologians and Asian theologians and Hispanic theologians, then you can't talk about the black value system.
HANNITY: But I'm a reverend
WRIGHT: Do you know liberation theology, sir?
"Black theology will accept only the love of God which participates in the destruction of the white enemy. What we need is the divine love as expressed in Black Power, which is the power of black people to destroy their oppressors here and now by any means at their disposal".--James (Jim) Cone,

This is nothing new folks. Some blacks have stated openly that there is no such thing as white civil rights violations--that their can't be such a thing.
"Their founding document [the Weather Underground's] called for the establishment of a "white fighting force" to be allied with the "Black Liberation Movement" and other "anti-colonial" movements to achieve "the destruction of US imperialism and the achievement of a classless world: world communism."..."-Berger, Dan (2006).

Outlaws of America: The Weather Underground and the Politics of Solidarity (Paperback) by Dan Berger
From the New York Times, August 24, 2003
"they [the Weather Underground] employed revolutionary jargon, advocated armed struggle and black liberation and began bombing buildings, taking responsibility for at least 20 attacks. Estimates of their number ranged at times from several dozen to several hundred."

if America is a nation of cowards when it comes to issues on race as Holder has previously said, then I guess it is Holder himself who’s the biggest coward in this nation....
Yes. And its also liberals of all streaks that believe that nonsense too.
Well, all this “stuff” hitting the fan answers questions for me.
I was assaulted under violation of 2 Fed Laws, and the Justice dept refused to even investigate. I received a “crushed spinal nerve” from the attack requiring Surgery to regain my ability to walk.
BUT one of my attackers was East African, and one was Latino. Now I know why the JD didn’t do anything.
I thought this ideology was the reason why we mass-emigrated out of Africa 60,000 years ago
It’s not really about race. The NBPP, Holder and Obama all share the same revolutionary communist political ideology. “Black Liberation” is a communist revolutionary political ideology. Black Liberation Theology pushes it via bogus “religions” like rev Wright and Farrakhan’s.
Furthermore the DOJ, under holder, has told states to stop purging the voter roles of dead people, illegal aliens, and double registrations, thus permitting more opportunities for voter fraud.
In March of 2007, FOX News host Sean Hannity had engaged Obamas pastor in a heated interview about his Churchs teachings. For many viewers, the ensuing shouting match was their first exposure to "Black Liberation Theology"...
Like the pro-communist Liberation Theology that swept Central America in the 1980s and was repeatedly condemned by Pope John Paul II, Black Liberation Theology combines warmed-over 1960s vintage Marxism with carefully distorted biblical passages. However, in contrast to traditional Marxism, it emphasizes race rather than class. The Christian notion of "salvation" in the afterlife is superseded by "liberation" on earth, courtesy of the establishment of a socialist utopia.
Catholics for Marx [Liberation Theology]
By Fr. Robert Sirico
FrontPageMagazine.com | Thursday, June 03, 2004
In the days when the Superpowers were locked in a Cold War, Latin America seethed with revolution, and millions lived behind an iron curtain, a group of theologians concocted a novel idea within the history of Christianity. They proposed to combine the teachings of Jesus with the teachings of Marx as a way of justifying violent revolution to overthrow the economics of capitalism.
The Gospels were re-rendered not as doctrine impacting on the human soul but rather as windows into the historical dialectic of class struggle. These "liberation theologians" saw every biblical criticism of the rich as a mandate to expropriate the expropriating owners of capital, and every expression of compassion for the poor as a call for an uprising by the proletarian class of peasants and workers.
I will anxiously await the full report of this testimony on the main-stream, State-run media this PM.
You’all know I am being cynical.
"During the 1970s and 1980s, FALN members set off at least 138 bombs in five major U.S. Cities. Six Americans were killed in those attacks. One of those bombings, in January 1975, was at the historic Fraunces Tavern in lower Manhattan while patrons were at lunch. The explosion killed four and injured more than 50."
"Fraunces Tavern is a restaurant and museum in lower Manhattan, New York City. It was built on the site of a former building which played a significant role in pre-Revolutionary activities, and in which, on 4 December 1783, General George Washington bade farewell to his officers at the end of the Revolution, before returning to his home, Mount Vernon."
"Between 1974 and 1985 the FALN (Puerto Rican Armed Forces of National Liberation) organized 120 terrorist bombings in the United States. Many Americans were killed in those bombings, and many more were crippled. In 1983, another Puerto Rican terrorist group known as the Macheteros, attacked and robbed a Wells Fargo armored car in Connecticut. The Macheteros intended to use the money to finance a terrorist campaign against the United States. Working under the cover of Puerto Rican nationalism and claiming to act on behalf of the 'oppressed people of Puerto Rico,' the FALN and the Macheteros are nothing but Communist revolutionaries. Both groups were organized by Fidel Castro's secret police. The ultimate goal of the FALN and the Macheteros is the creation of an independent Marxist-Leninist dictatorship on the island of Puerto Rico."

Sorry to hear that- hope you’re doing better. I’d go public with that and raise awareness with a favorable newspaper or something along those lines. If that happened to you, who knows how many other people are/will be suffering the same fate?
Yes I spent Friday night in the Hospital but it was something else.
I have a 5 inch binder of proof. Now I know. By the way I love my surgeon.
One day these idiots are going to bring a baton to a gun fight.
BTW: That's Jerry Jackson on the right (below).

Now that its clear that the -17bama marxist/communist-leaning regime is all about one agenda, with all their “failures” linked together since its all about idiology, its now a “race” (pun intended) to 2010/2012 to consolidate and make permanent their gains, or, receive short shrift for their treason when/if they fail to consolidate.
