A new 144-page report released over the weekend shows that the Obama Department of Justice (DOJ) are, indeed, guilty of refusing to pursue civil rights claims when Whites are the victim. The Chief of the Voting Rights section, Christopher Coates, testified at one time the Department was race neutral, until the…the election of Barack Obama which “allowed those most opposed to “race-neutral enforcement” to move into leadership positions….”
If you remember the New Black Panther Party voter intimidation case in Philadelphia during the 2008 presidential election, you’ll also remember that a DOJ attorney, J. Christian Adams, quit his job in protest, and said the Civil Rights Division of the DOJ told him that they were not interested in pursing any claims on behalf of a White person.
The just released report from the Civil Rights Commission said there are “numerous specific examples” of discrimination against Whites:
“While the department has issued general statements that it enforces the laws without regard to race, these assurances do not confirm, deny or explain the specific allegations of misconduct,” the report said. “Unfortunately, the department has thus far refused to address many of these specific claims or to provide the type of information that would allow the commission to properly review the decision making relating to the NBPP lawsuit.”
The Justice Department supervisor who recommended pursuing a voter intimidation case against members of the New Black Panther Party testified in September that the Civil Rights Division engaged in reverse racism, refusing to bring charges in voting cases unless the victim was a minority.
Christopher Coats was ordered by the DOJ not to testify about the case. He did so anyway, saying he felt “compelled” [to tell what he knew to be true].
“Based upon my own personal knowledge of the events surrounding the division’s actions in the Panther case and the atmosphere that existed and continues to exist in the division and in the voting section against fair enforcement of certain federal voting laws, I do not believe these representations to this commission accurately reflect what occurred in the Panther case and do not reflect the hostile atmosphere that existed within the division for a long time against race-neutral enforcement of the Voting Rights Act,” he said.
Mr. Coates said this hostility became clear to him while pursuing a 2005 Mississippi case in which white voters were the victims of intimidation. He said some department employees refused to work on the case, which, according to Mr. Coates, also drew criticism from civil rights groups.
Coates took a job as Assistant U.S. Attorney in South Carolina when it became clear that he was persona-non-grata at the U.S. Department of No-Justice.
The U.S. Civil Rights Commission said during the investigation that the DOJ was “unresponsive” to their requests for information:
“What was not anticipated was the extent of the department’s lack of cooperation,” the report said. “At various times the department alleged it would provide no information because the matter was being reviewed by its Office of Professional Responsibility. At other times, the Department raised a wide variety of legal privileges, many of which seemed to have no relevance to the current investigation.”
Although the department eventually began to provide some information, including 4,000 pages of documents, the report said much of the information provided either did not relate to the New Black Panther Party litigation, involved matters that were already public, or involved prior voter intimidation lawsuits. The report said the information did not address the core of the commission’s inquiry as to why the NBPP lawsuit had been challenged internally.
We have the report. Now what?
The Obama Department of Justice are scam artists and they are a dark blot on this nation. God help us. Barack Obama must be a one-term president. Everything is at stake.
