J. Christian Adams' accusations that President Obama's Justice Department engaged in racially charged "corruption" in the New Black Panther Party case do not stand up to the evidence. Adams is a right-wing activist tied to the Bush-era politicization of the Justice Department who has admitted he lacks first-hand knowledge of the events he is discussing, and his claims fall apart given the fact that the Obama DOJ obtained judgment against one defendant, while the Bush DOJ declined to pursue similar allegations in 2006.</div></div>


Who would have guessed!

Adams: DOJ decision not to pursue charges in New Black Panthers case demonstrates unprecedented, racially charged corruption. GOP activist J. Christian Adams penned a Washington Times column leveling accusations of a "corrupt" and racially charged dismissal of the New Black Panther Party case and appeared in a two-part interview with Fox News' Megyn Kelly. During the interview, Adams accused the Justice Department of "a hostility in the voting section and in the civil rights division to bringing cases on behalf of white victims for the benefit of national racial minorities." Adams further said that "the decision to dismiss this case was corrupt," adding, "to abandon law-abiding citizens and abet wrongdoers constitutes corruption." In a Pajamas Media post, Adams wrote:

If we had that frank, truthful discussion about race, we'd learn that the Obama administration doesn't believe some civil rights laws protect every American. The Bush Civil Rights Division was willing to protect all Americans from racial discrimination; during the Obama years, the Holder years, only some Americans will be protected. Americans have a right to know and judge the racial policies of the administration they elected in 2008.

Adams' unsubstantiated story spread throughout other right-wing media. Kelly brought the story to Hannity, and it was picked up by Rush Limbaugh, Laura Ingraham, radio host Jay Severin, the blogs Hot Air, Atlas Shrugs, Ace of Spades, Andrew Breitbart's Big Government, and the Fox website Fox Nation.
Reality: Adams' accusations don't stand up to the facts

* <span style='font-size: 14pt'>Adams is a long-time right-wing activist, who is known for filing an ethics complaint against Hugh Rodham that was subsequently dismissed, served as a Bush poll watcher in Florida 2004, and reportedly volunteered for a Republican group that trains lawyers to fight "racially tinged battles over voting rights";
* Adams was hired to the Justice Department in 2005 by Bradley Schlozman, who was found by the Department of Justice Inspector General and Office of Professional Responsibility to have improperly considered political affiliation when hiring career attorneys -- the former head of the DOJ voting rights section reportedly said that Adams was "exhibit A of the type of people hired by Schlozman";</span>
* Adams has admitted that he does not have first-hand knowledge of the events, conversations, and decisions that he is citing to advance his accusations;
* The Bush administration's Justice Department -- not the Obama administration -- made the decision not to pursue criminal charges against members of the New Black Panther Party for alleged voter intimidation at a polling center in Philadelphia in 2008;
* The Obama administration successfully obtained default judgment against Samir Shabazz, a member of the New Black Panther Party carrying a nightstick outside the Philadelphia polling center on Election Day 2008;
* The Bush administration DOJ chose not to pursue similar charges against members of the Minutemen, one of whom allegedly carried a weapon while harassing Hispanic voters in Arizona in 2006;
* No voters have come forward to claim that they were intimidated from voting on account of the New Black Panthers standing outside the polling center in 2008;
* <span style='font-size: 20pt'>The Republican vice chairwoman of the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights, which is currently investigating the Justice Department's decision, has called that investigation "very small potatoes" full of "overheated rhetoric filled with insinuations and unsubstantiated charges," and said it has not "served the interests of the commission"; she further said that DOJ has given a "plausible argument" for not pursuing additional charges in the case.</span>

July 09, 2010 6:04 pm ET by Tom Allison

While promoting the U.S. Civil Rights Commission's "kangaroo court" hearings into the Justice Depatment's decision not to pursue additional charges against members of the New Black Panther Party Fox has begun playing reel after reel of NBPP footage, notably President Malik Zulu Shabazz and Minister King Samir Shabazz screaming about wanting to kill "cracker babies."

But as Republican Vice-Chair of the Commission Abigail Thernstrom pointed out back in April, the investigation into the DOJ's decision to drop some of the charges hinges on whether allegations of voter fraud can be substantiated, not whether NBPP is a bad group. We know NBPP is a bad group.

In April Thernstrom criticized her fellow commissioners for a line of questioning that attempted "to establish the fact that the New Black Panther Party is exactly as they describe themselves...not a pretty picture" saying that that line of questioning didn't "really get to the matter of the internal DOJ decision to dismiss this lawsuit."

But Fox keeps promoting the NBPP's radical views and violent aspirations: Megyn Kelly just dedicated airtime to an interview with President Malik Zulu Shabazz. I guess scary makes for great television. Just look at those uniforms, those berets, that nightstick. <span style='font-size: 17pt'>The truth is, these guys are jokers, a cartoon of a legitimate political voice in America. They deserve as much media credence as any other hate group that the Southern Poverty Law Center tracks. Fox's obsession with highlighting them -- particularly focusing on video of the NBPP that was captured prior to Election Day 2008 -- says absolutely nothing about the DOJ's decision not to pursue additional charges.</span> It simply suggests that the Obama administration is actively defending a radical racist group </div></div>

They haven't got ACORN to demonize any more, they killed that goose. This 'manufactured scandal' is just an excuse for Fox to run endless videos to scare people with the message, " The blacks want to kill you AND your babies and Obama is protecting them."

Its race baiting 101.

Well, at least your safe, bro.
Be sure to point out to Kalid that you had a cousin, thrice
removed, who knew a guy once who lived next door to a black man.
Plus, you might tell him that you are fast friends with

Lemmesee. We hav fox panther kangaroo.
But one guy we know here swears he saw a black panther crossing the road. We reckon it woz a black wallaby. When scared wallabys hav the ability to sort of hop lowish with head low, instead of hopping highish with their head held highish. And their fat black tail sticks out like a cats too. If u had 2 wallabys together at nite they might look like a panther.
Meanwhile, back in america, they hav guys who swear they saw 2 black wallabys crossing the road at nite. I reckon that theze'this woz aktually a black panther.
Foxes are vermin here in victoria. The bounty for a dead fox haz been reintroduced.

I hav been googling the new black panther party for self defence. And the ku klux klan.
I think i will join the NBPPfSD. They hav a nice emblem/logo, and i like their slogan/motto -- FREEDOM OR DEATH.
The KKK websites are hopeless. No clearcut emblem -- alltho they do seem to allmost hide that logo of a nice klansman in uniform on a white charger (madSherie likes that). But there iz no clear'cut motto.
And i like the panther 2-page mission statement. Whereaz the klan just hav pages and pages of words and threats and apologys.

Noticed I mis-spelled "you're."
My grammar is falling apart since I retired. Too late to edit.
