BHO Drops Charges Against Blk Panthers

From Fox News:

Charges Against ‘New Black Panthers’ Dropped by Obama Justice Dept.

Friday, May 29, 2009

Charges brought against three members of the New Black Panther Party for Self-Defense under the Bush administration have been dropped by the Obama Justice Department, FOX News has learned…

The three black panthers, Minister King Samir Shabazz, Malik Zulu Shabazz and Jerry Jackson were charged in a civil complaint in the final days of the Bush administration with violating the voter rights act by using coercion, threats and intimidation. Shabazz allegedly held a nightstick or baton that prosecutors said he pointed at people and menacingly tapped it. Prosecutors also say he "supports racially motivated violence against non-blacks and Jews."

The Obama administration won the case last month, but moved to dismiss the charges on May 15

A poll watcher who provided an affidavit to prosecutors in the case noted that Bartle Bull, who worked as a civil rights lawyer in the south in the 1960’s and is a former campaign manager for Robert Kennedy, said it was the most blatant form of voter intimidation he had ever seen.

In his affidavit, obtained by FOX News, Bull wrote "I watched the two uniformed men confront voters and attempt to intimidate voters. They were positioned in a location that forced every voter to pass in close proximity to them. The weapon was openly displayed and brandished in plain sight of voters."

He also said they tried to "interfere with the work of other poll observers … whom the uniformed men apparently believed did not share their preferences politically," noting that one of the panthers turned toward the white poll observers and said "you are about to be ruled by the black man, cracker."

A spokesman for the Department of Justice told FOX News, "The Justice Department was successful in obtaining an injunction that prohibits the defendant who brandished a weapon outside a Philadelphia polling place from doing so again. Claims were dismissed against the other defendants based on a careful assessment of the facts and the law. The department is committed to the vigorous prosecution of those who intimidate, threaten or coerce anyone exercising his or her sacred right to vote."

Well, what is he supposed to do? Prosecute his constituents?

Send some of his earliest supporters to jail?

One man’s ‘voter intimidation’ is another man’s ‘community organizing.’

    Mistah Kurtz––he dead.

    Here is Liberalism stripped of its thin veneer. Here Nerobama and Tigellinus-Holder show their true colors. By quashing these criminal prosecutions, they show their contempt for the rule of law, their contempt for democracy, their support for thuggery and anti-white racism, and their aptitude for despotism. Adjutorium nostrum, Domine.

    I’m just waiting for the list of pardons he issues on his way out of office in 2012. I wouldn’t be surprised if he pardons Manson.

    • TwilightZoned says:

      Man, thinking of who he’ll pardon is just plain scary!!!

    • jobeth says:

      Thanks pdsand!

      Just when I think there is nothing more he can do to worry me even more….you come up with that little reminder!

      Better stock up on your ammo right now…Somehow I can see the all the doors of the prisons just a swingin’.open.

      After all they were all just misunderstood and were oppressed by the ” crackers”. Including and especially islamic nutjob terrorists who murder our soldiers here on American soil

      I can really see a problem with that if we are fortunate enough to make him a one termer. One last laugh from Dear Leader.

  3. proreason says:

    The left has argued for decades that when a large percentage of the population is encarcerated, then what they are incarcerated for must not be crimes.

    Because after all, crime, like everything else, is in the eye of the beholder.

    And the “rule of law”, a phrase the Moron uses about as frequently as “not fair”, is also in the eye of the beholder.

    And the good news for the Black Panthers, Weathermen, revolutionaries, communists, drug dealers, rapists, and criminals of all stripe is that from now on, a racist, success-hating, whitey-hating “beholder” will be making the decisions about crime and the “rule of law”.

    I am just a white man trying to cop a plea in a obamanation!

  5. catie says:

    Well, well, well. When I read this in the Washington Times this morning I about fell out of my chair. This is an absolute disgusting story. Well, we know he hates whitey but he forgets he’s half whitey.

    • Liberals Demise says:

      There has gots to be a struggle goin’ on in his body. His black half is gonna do a drive-by on the white half.

    • jobeth says:

      LD…do you think we can somehow talk/trick him into it? Ah…what a nice dream!

  6. MinnesotaRush says:

    Tea Parties and their participants are a HUGE problem; but uniformed and armed thugs brandishing their weapons at the entry ways of voting places is just hunky dorey.

    It really is the end of the world as we know it.

  7. Steve says:

    Mr. Limbaugh just discussed this thread.

  8. 12 Gauge Rage says:

    My father predicted this years before his death. He theorized that if a black were ever to become president, he would then use his authority as payback for all those years of white oppression. When he said this I was hoping that he was wrong, but back then I was much younger and a lot more idealistic.

    • jobeth says:

      ” payback for all those years of white oppression”

      You know…it really rips me when these spoiled brats talk about payback etc. Who do they think worked all those years helping them obtain their freedom and then fought for their rights to equal opportunity.

      If whites were that bad they would still be “oppressed”. They couldn’t have done it without the help and cooperation of fair minded whites…but they never remember that.

      Instead they want to blame you and I for what our great grandparents were guilty of. They can’t grasp that WE didn’t do anything but work with them. Some thanks the white man gets.

      Then they say we don’t want to have them in our neighborhoods etc. That’s nutty and if they ever really looked hard it isn’t their color we object to. Its….oh…the drive bys….the roving groups of thugs that would love nothing more that to exact revenge for their perceived wrongs. I could go on but I don’t think I have to.

      BTW, I think I can speak for a lot of us by saying we would object to that behavior if it were from a white, or Hispanic, or Swedish or Irish or German or…….etc etc.


      What is it about them that they don’t get that?…Retorical…..Don’t answer that…

  9. Anonymoose says:

    Gads, Justice is even sounding like Obama. “So, you, um, were allegedly acting threatening and……er, well don’t do it again.” The “sacred” right to vote isn’t being held in much esteem if they decide to drop the charges and call it “vigorous” prosecution. That’s showing almost as much vigor as Obama’s phony hair colors.

  10. MinnesotaRush says:

    So, .. I’m wondering what kind of charges there might be if a larger group of folks showed up with uniforms and crests that said the “New Panther Polo Team” and if their charges would be dropped, too. Just askin’.

  11. canary says:

    you are about to be ruled by the black man, cracker.” The Black Panthers (many are muslims as was Malcome X) share Obama’s woship of Malcome X who wanted to exterminate whites. Obama’s and his Panther’s “hero” Malcome X bragged he avoided the draft in 1943, because military physicians classifed his as “mentally disqualified for military service because he told the examining officer that he could not wait to “Steal us some guns, and KILL US CRACKERS!” Course Obama’s other BBF John Kerry, like the panthers too.
    Obama really liked Kerry and even tried to crash a convention that only delegates were allowed in. Obama accused Bush’s definition of the axis of evil, to include the entire globe. What a bunch of b.s. Obama loves the entire world, except American.

  12. VMAN says:

    My wife fears for my well being. The day I go to vote and one of these thugs points a night stick at me and calls me “cracker” (which by the way is not very offensive to me) He is going to have more of me than he ever bargained for. This idiot we have for a president has set race relations beck at least 100 years but as the old adage goes “divide and conquer”. Conservatives see people but those racist libs ONLY see race.

  13. Confucius says:

    Of course brother BHO dropped the charges. He can’t be seen as an Uncle Tom . . . not even 1/2 of one.
