Attorney General Eric Holder’s quest for social justice knows no bounds. Republican Congressman John Culberson (TX) accused Holder of “failing to cooperate” in the infamous case of the The New Black Panthers intimidating voters at a Philadelphia polling place in the 2008 presidential elections. Holder was offended when Culberson cited Democrat activist and Civil Rights icon, Bartle Bull’s testimony about the kind of intimidation he saw that day at the polls. Holder said the comparison was an affront to “his” people who sacrificed in the 60″s. Apparently Bartle Bull, who is White and who took part in many protests during that time, doesn’t have the right to an opinion because he is White and obviously not one of Holder’s “people.” See a related video below.
In a series of questions and comments earlier in the hearing, Culberson insisted that race had infected the decision-making process.
“There’s clearly evidence, overwhelming evidence, that your Department of Justice refuses to protect the rights of anybody other than African Americans to vote,” the Texas Republican said. “There’s a pattern of a double standard here.”
Holder’s reply was that he disagreed – vehemently – that there is any such evidence. But there is such evidence. There is the testimony of two people who were integral parts of the Department of Justice and the handling of the case until the social justice agenda commenced. One was transferred to the hinterlands, and the second quit because the Department was so lacking in integrity. The one who quit, J. Christian Adams said a DOJ department head stated there would be no attempt to prosecute Black wrongdoers for any kind of voter fraud or intimidation, but there was no plan to also exempt Whites for doing the same – or any other ethnicity.
In the first place, the New Black Panthers (three of them) refused to show up to court – over and over for a five month period. A default judgment was handed down. Holder refused to honor it and ordered the case dismissed. Some inside Justice were outraged, not to mention those inside Congress. One of the Black Panthers wielding a nightstick that day in Philadelphia said this:
i has waited all my life for the day that Strong Black men could stand outside a voting poll in a Honk neighborhood and beat republiKKKan voters with a baseball bat to keep the motherfu**ers from voting for they racist candidate and walk away scott free and be a hero in the black community,,,,,,,,,,and that day finally here
The New Black Panthers are Eric Holder’s “people,” and he will have his brand of justice for them. The lawlessness of this administration, and this so-called Justice Department is despicable.
