The charge by former DOJ attorney Christian Adams was serious enough to get a hearing before the federal civil rights commission.
Most of the national media has not reported on this incident to date. Only Fox and CNN have devoted time to the handling of this incident by the the DOJ. Attorney Christian testified that the DOJ refuses equal coverage under the law to whites that are prevented by force or intimidation from voting.
I’m not a scholar in constitutional law, so my thinking that such treatment of voters is illegal could be wrong. Could it be that our Constitution is being twisted to suit the Obama regime?
Am I the only one who questions these abuses? Should I just overlook the threats against my family and myself?
It’s remarkable that Mel Gibson’s love life and racist remarks can get coverage on every national television network, but these same networks have not devoted a minute to this voter intimidation case.
While the DOJ is shielding the New Black Panthers, it is also backing away from a similar situation in Mississippi where a black man named Ike Brown has been preventing whites from voting.
Like it or not, this activity and efforts to subvert the electoral process in this nation are a fact, not some far-right inspired fiction.
I didn’t really want to comment on this matter because in doing so I make myself a target of ridicule. I’ve already been lectured many times about slavery (I never owned a slave) and about poll taxes and other forms of vote denial to blacks (and poor whites). I have never attempted to force someone to not vote or else vote as I say. I will campaign for a candidate of my choice and try to win you over to our side. I won’t threaten your wife or children. I don’t like where this is taking us. The outcome could be very bad.
