Now having worked in voter registration WAY BACK in KKK land, I can tell you, I never saw anything like that in reverse.
So when this showed up on TV, it had my attention.
This is pretty obvious stuff.
Now add in these two mind blowing factoids FROM THE OLD SCHOOL/NEW SCHOOL left..the ADL and the SPLC...BOTH call the New Black Panthers a hate group. Whoa, right? Ok so now...
WASH TIMES: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.
The incident - which gained national attention when it was captured on videotape and distributed on YouTube - had prompted the government to sue the men, saying they violated the 1965 Voting Rights Act by scaring would-be voters with the weapon, racial slurs and military-style uniforms.
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.
Here's the REAL RUB ... when charged at the outset, these thugs DID NOT SHOW UP to answer the charges, and had the govt just done NOTHING, they would have been found guilty. Instead Eric Holder went out of his way to DROP THE CHARGES against people who in 1965, and of another hue, would have been doing the frog march with raincoats over theitr heads as they wound their way to a multi year sentence someplace like MARION, IL.
The people running the admin are simply WAY WAY WAY out there.
Apparently they see this as their chance to,,...... what?
A Justice Department spokesman on Thursday confirmed that the agency had dropped the case, dismissing two of the men from the lawsuit with no penalty and winning an order against the third man that simply prohibits him from bringing a weapon to a polling place in future elections.
Can you imagine that outcome in 1966 against some cracker in Dothan Alabama who bought a weapon along with this buds to a voting place to keep black people away?
The people running this govt are NOT LIBERALS. They are against all that liberals worked for in the 60's.
