Will Perceived Racism at Obama’s DOJ Lead to Violence in November?

Most everyone has seen the photos and video of the New Black Panther members outside of a mostly white Philadelphia voting precinct during the November, 2008 elections. There is no explanation as to the intent of these radicals except voter intimidation.

But this is America, not some third world country ruled by threats, intimidation and violence. Or is it?

Most people were shocked by the pictures, but comforted by the fact that these thugs were being charged with a crime for their actions. Good! That is how America deals with these incidents.

Until now, that is.

Is there any possibility that if the person in the photo were dressed in a pointy white hat and sheet that the charges would have been dropped?

Absolute no possibility.

And if they were, would Philadelphia see a Rodney King meltdown by an angry mob pushed beyond the breaking point by the ugly reality of racism?

Probably so.

Reflecting on the possibility of similar voter intimidation by radical left wing groups, a number of Veteran’s Groups networked during Virginia’s 2009 elections and set up a quick response effort to make sure this did not happen here. On the conference calls, Veterans were instructed to wear caps or T-shirts identifying themselves as Veterans to bring a sense of comfort and security to any polling places where the left attempted to intimidate. Military and para-military uniforms were not to be worn, nor were weapons to be carried. The idea was not confrontation, but balance. And security.

The law would take care of intimidation at the polls.

But that is no longer the case.

“Whistle-blower” J. Christian Adams has accused the Obama Administration of racism in dropping the charges against the New Black Panthers.

From FoxNews:

In emotional and personal testimony, an ex-Justice official who quit over the handling of a voter intimidation case against the New Black Panther Party accused his former employer of instructing attorneys in the civil rights division to ignore cases that involve black defendants and white victims.

J. Christian Adams, testifying Tuesday before the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights, said that “over and over and over again,” the department showed “hostility” toward those cases. He described the Black Panther case as one example of that — he defended the legitimacy of the suit and said his “blood boiled” when he heard a Justice official claim the case wasn’t solid.

“It is false,” Adams said of the claim.

“We abetted wrongdoing and abandoned law-abiding citizens,” he later testified.

The department abandoned the New Black Panther case last year. It stemmed from an incident on Election Day in 2008 in Philadelphia, where members of the party were videotaped in front of a polling place, dressed in military-style uniforms and allegedly hurling racial slurs while one brandished a night stick.

So, with government no longer interested in protecting voters from intimidation, will Citizens feel the need to take matters into their own hands?

Obama has already forced states like Arizona to take up the slack from selective enforcement of US Laws by the Obama Administration. When people feel that the the federal government is not enforcing the law, and the crimes allowed are harmful and serious, an overwhelming urge for self preservation rises to the surface.

Violence is never the best option, but when all other options are removed, it may be all that is left. That must not be allowed to happen, and not by more armed thugs. The answer is NO intimidation by anyone.

The Obama Administration needs to reopen the Black Panther Intimidation case and allow the case to be tried. In the interest of fairness and in the interest of justice. This Administration needs to show that race is not a factor in determining which crimes to prosecute. Only then can we have fair and honest elections.

Leaving Americans feeling the government has become racist is wrong no matter the race of the victim. The Department of Justice is corralling citizens into a path no one wants to go down.

Nothing is more conservative than a republican wanting to get their majority back. And nothing is more liberal than a republican WITH a majority.
