Black panther intimidating
In 2008, members of the New Black Panthers wore black paramilitary garb and stood in front of the doors leading to a polling place in Philadelphia.In that case, the Department of Justice later narrowed the charges against Minister King Shabazz and dismissed the charges against the party and Jackson.Although career federal prosecutors won this case (arguing, among other things, "There is never a good reason to bring a billy club to a polling station") they were overruled by political appointees in President Obama's Justice Department who ordered them to dismiss the complaints against all parties except King Samir Shabazz. The May 15, 2009, case dismissal was timed perfectly for Jerry Jackson.He was ordered not to exhibit a weapon within 100 feet of a Philadelphia precinct through Nov. During the 2008 incident, he was an elected member of Philadelphia's 14th Ward Democratic Committee and a credentialed poll watcher for the Democratic Party and the Obama campaign. Jackson watched the polls again in municipal elections on May 19, 2009.This situation is even more outrageous, given the unvarnished bigotry of those involved. Adams, Deputy Assistant Attorney General Julie Fernandes last November instructed prosecutors on the "motor voter" law that governs voter registration.* "You want freedom, you gonna have to kill some crackers," King Samir Shabazz says on a National Geographic/You Tube video. Regarding that statute's Section 8 - which requires that local officials purge their rolls of relocated, ineligible and dead voters - Mr. Fernandes, an Obama political appointee, say: "We have no interest in enforcing this provision of the law.Shabazz said in September that the New Black Panthers, who have called for the killing of whites and Jews, might monitor polling places again in 2012.
The documents directly contradict sworn testimony by Obama’s Assistant Attorney General for the Civil Rights Division, Thomas Perez, that no political leadership was involved in the decision. Christian Adams, said there’s a pervasive and open hostility towards equal enforcement of the law in the DOJ’s Civil Rights Division.Under the 1965 Voting Rights Act, the Department of Justice (DOJ) brought a voter intimidation case against the Black Panthers, which have been labeled a hate group by a number of leftwing nonprofits for their anti-white and anti-Semitic rhetoric. The DOJ also pursued an injunction preventing any future deployment of or display of weapons by Black Panther members at the entrance of a polling location.For instance, the Southern Poverty Law Center, a civil rights organization dedicated to fighting hate and bigotry, describes the Black Panthers as a “virulently racist and anti-Semitic organization whose leaders have encouraged violence against whites, Jews and law enforcement officers.” Led by Shabazz, the Black Panthers violated the section of the Voting Rights Act that prohibits intimidation, coercion or threats against any person for voting or attempting to vote, according to the complaint filed by the feds in 2009 in U. But a few months later the Obama DOJ quietly dropped the charges and it all disappeared like a bad dream.Which states have Obama and Romney visited the most?Check our Candidate Tracker to find out“But whatever we will do, it will be legal and lawful under the Constitution of the United States," Shabazz told “Aaron Klein Investigative Radio.”A group of retired Navy SEALs and other former special ops service members vowed to counter any attempt to intimidate voters by sending teams to sites in Philadelphia, Cleveland, Miami and Las Vegas. Benjamin Brink told Philadelphia radio station IQ 106.9 FM more than a hundred former SEALs, Army Rangers, Delta Force operatives and Green Berets volunteered for the job.
