Government anti-white hostility and pressure from the Obama-backed NAACP are the reasons why the Black Panthers who racially abused and threatened whites outside a Philadelphia polling station were not prosecuted, two former Department of Justice (DOJ) officials have revealed.
According to Christopher Coates, former voting chief for the department’s Civil Rights Division, the “Justice Department is ignoring civil rights cases that involve white victims and wrongly abandoned a voter intimidation case against the New Black Panther Party last year” and is committing a “travesty of justice.”
Mr. Coates detailed how the DOJ “cultivates a hostile atmosphere against race-neutral enforcement of the Voting Rights Act.”
He said that civil rights attorneys only take up cases representing non-white victims and that the Philadelphia Black Panther case was dismissed “following pressure by the NAACP” and “anger” within the Justice Department.
“That anger was the result of their deep-seated opposition to the equal enforcement of the Voting Rights Act against racial minorities and for the protection of white voters who have been discriminated against,” Mr. Coates said.
He added that a 2005 case against a black official in Mississippi over voter intimidation claims had stirred a “backlash in the department” and “from civil rights groups” in exactly the same way that the New Black Panther case had.
The New Black Panther members were videotaped outside a Philadelphia polling place in 2008 dressed in black uniforms brandishing a billy club and shouting racial insults in support of then candidate Barrack Obama.
Initially charged with intimidation, the case was dismissed last year after the department got one of the New Black Panther members to agree not to carry a “deadly weapon” near a polling place until 2012.
Mr. Coates pointed out the obvious, namely that the reasons given for dismissing the case were “extraordinarily strange” and “weak” after another of the Black Panther members was let off the hook because a local police officer had determined he was a Democratic Party poll watcher.
He urged the commission to consider what would have been said if the Panthers had been members of the Ku Klux Klan.
“To understand the rationale of these articulated reasons for gutting this case … one only has to state the facts in the racial reverse,” he said.
In July this year, former Justice official J. Christian Adams testified that his former employer showed “hostility” toward cases that involved white victims and black defendants.
The NAACP, which Mr. Coates pinpointed as a key player in the moves to get the Black Panther case squashed, is a firm ally of President Obama and he has addressed that body numerous times, never missing the opportunity to fan the flames of hatred against white people.
For example, in July 2009, President Obama blamed whites for “societal ills” affecting the black community, saying the “legacy of the Jim Crow era is still felt, albeit in different ways today.”
“Make no mistake, no mistake: the pain of discrimination is still felt in
America,” Mr. Obama said, “by African-American women who are paid less for the same work as white men, by Latinos “made to feel unwelcome,” by Muslim Americans “viewed with suspicion” and by “our gay brothers and sisters, still taunted, still attacked, still denied their rights.”
“More than 50 years after the Supreme Court’s landmark segregation case, Brown v. Board of Education, the dream of a world-class education is still being deferred all across this country” as black students lag behind white classmates in reading and math.
Given that sort of rhetoric, it is little wonder that anti-white attitudes are spreading throughout government departments.
