Lemme ask you something:  if you went to the polls on Election Day and saw three members of the Black Panther Party for Self-Defense (“self-defense,” my ass – wielding a weapon at the polls, “watching” the voting in progress in paramilitary garb certainly doesn’t qualify as self-defense in my book!), would you be intimidated? 

I am not afraid to admit that I would be, and so were others, including one civil rights activist who saw the voting rights crisis in Mississippi with his own eyes half a century ago.  I report – you decide.

Voter intimidation is illegal.  It’s also immoral and interferes with the people’s right to freely elect their government. Can anyone honestly look at this video, and claim there’s nothing to the voter intimidation claim?

Well, apparently, the Obama “Justice” Department did exactly that. Three Black Panthers were accused of voter intimidation.  An individual who witnessed voter intimidation first hand during the 60s confirmed it was “the most blatant form of voter intimidation” that he had seen.  The intimidation was captured on video.  But somehow…


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 career Justice lawyers were on the verge of securing sanctions
against the men earlier this month when their superiors ordered them to
reverse course, according to interviews and documents. The court had
already entered a default judgment against the men on April 20.


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.

The department was “successful in obtaining an injunction that
prohibits the defendant who brandished a weapon outside a Philadelphia
polling place from doing so again,” spokesman Alejandro Miyar said.
“Claims were dismissed against the other defendants based on a careful
assessment of the facts and the law.”

Mr. Miyar declined to elaborate about any internal dispute
between career and political officials, saying only that the department
is “committed to the vigorous prosecution of those who intimidate,
threaten or coerce anyone exercising his or her sacred right to vote.” 

[...]

People directly familiar with the case, who spoke only on the condition
of anonymity because of fear of retribution, said career lawyers in two
separate Justice offices had recommended proceeding to default judgment
before political superiors overruled them.

Voter intimidation, efforts to hide and protect those doing the intimidating – all for the benefit of Teh Anointed One… all courtesy of His Mighty HopeandChangitude.

This is beyond appalling.  These political hacks claim to want justice?  They don’t want justice.  They want to protect their corrupt Chitown Messiah!  And in the process, they set these foul pieces of racist, socialist shit free.

The civil suit filed Jan. 7 identified the three men as members of the
Panthers and said they wore military-style uniforms, black berets,
combat boots, battle-dress pants, black jackets with military-style
insignias and were armed with “a dangerous weapon”and used racial slurs
and insults to scare would-be voters and those there to assist them at
the Philadelphia polling location on Nov. 4.

These militant fucks apparently have no problem with voter intimidation and keeping the competition too scared to vote its conscience… as long as their guy is the winner.

Would you like to know what the Obama Administration is protecting?

We believe our people should be exempt from ALL TAXATION as long as we
are deprived of equal justice under the laws of the land and the
overdue reparations debt remains unpaid. We will accept payment in
fertile and mine rally rich land, precious metals, industry, commerce
and currency. As genocide crimes continue, people’s tribunals must be
set up to prosecute and to execute.

The “Jews” were given
reparations. The Japanese were given reparations. The Black, the Red
and the Brown Nations must be given reparations. The American white man
owes us reparations. England owes us reparations. France owes us
reparations, Spain and all of Europe. Africa owes us reparations and
repatriation. The Arabs owe us reparations. The “Jews” owe us
reparations. All have taken part in the AFRICAN HOLOCAUST and the
slaughter of 600 million of our people over the past 6,000 years in
general and 400 year in particular. We know that this is a reasonable
and just demand that we make at this time in history.

We want freedom for all Black Men and Black Women held in
international, military, federal, state, county, city jails and
prisons. 

We believe that all Black People and people of color
should be released from the many jails and prisons because they have
not received a fair and impartial trial. ‘Released’ means ‘released’ to
the lawful authorities of the Black Nation.

We want land, bread, housing, education, clothing, justice and peace.
And, as our political objective, we want NATIONAL LIBERATION in a
separate state or territory of our own, here or elsewhere, “a liberated
zone” (“New Africa” or Africa), and a plebiscite to be held throughout
the BLACK NATION in which only we will be allowed to participate for
the purposes of determining our will and DIVINE destiny as a people.
FREE THE LAND!

This racist, self-entitled, deluded, twisted, violent band of animals is what the Obama administration is protecting.

And yes, this administration is without a doubt protecting these fucksacks.

To support its evidence, the government had secured an affidavit from
Bartle Bull, a longtime civil rights activist and former aide to Sen.
Robert F. Kennedy’s 1968 presidential campaign. Mr. Bull said in a
sworn statement dated April 7 that he was serving in November as a
credentialed poll watcher in Philadelphia when he saw the three
uniformed Panthers confront and intimidate voters with a nightstick.


Inexplicably, the government did not enter the affidavit in the court case, according to the files.

And the Department of so-called “Justice” spokesman has the balls to claim that all was copascetic?

The department was “successful in obtaining an injunction that
prohibits the defendant who brandished a weapon outside a Philadelphia
polling place from doing so again,” spokesman Alejandro Miyar said.
“Claims were dismissed against the other defendants based on a careful
assessment of the facts and the law.”

Nothing about the three defendants’ blatant violation of the Voting Rights Act.  Nothing about their blatant attempt to scare those who they believed would be voting against a… ahem… particular candidate. 

Still think this is the change you were looking for?
