The Associated Press is reporting that our Justice Department is going to be watching Arizona for any hints of racial profiling so that they can jump in with another lawsuit against the state.
Interestingly, on Election Day November 2008, the members of the New Black Panthers raised cane with voters at a polling place in Philadelphia wearing uniforms and brandishing billy clubs. The same Justice Department, after looking into the matter, dropped prosecution of the people involved, leading federal prosecutor J. Christian Adams to resign from the Justice Department in protest.
If it had been white supremacists intimidating voters by waving Bibles in the air they would have prosecuted them; if it had been Ku Klux Klan Grand Dragons (the late Robert Byrd excluded) intimidating voters with burning crosses they would have prosecuted them; if it had been Aryan Nation members toting guns they would have prosecuted them. But it wasn’t, it was an angry horde of black supremacists intimidating voters and trying to distract poll workers so that A.C.O.R.N. members could vote illegally, and that was okay.
By practicing federal intimidation of states, our Justice Department, led by Eric Holder, is using its own form of racial profiling – or should I say racist profiling – to decide who and who not to prosecute.
Welcome to Obama’s America 2010.
