Racial hypocrisy (UPDATED)

You might recall the media frenzy surrounding the alleged Tea Party incident occurring in March of this year involving racial epithets and spitting in the direction of Black Caucus members on the steps of the Capitol building.

You might recall the Southern Poverty Law Center calling for the rejection of the politics of hate and many in the mainstream media jumping on that bandwagon.

You might also recall that the much ballyhooed incident had its share of doubters and that in fact, there seemed to be more video available disputing the claims than there were substantiating them.

Let's now fast forward to more recent times via the good folks at Flopping Aces:

Note that Samir Shabazz and Jerry Jackson, seen together in this video, were also the defendants in a prosecution dropped by Obama's Dept. of Justice for voter intimidation outside a polling place in 2008. Note also that Mr. Jackson, the taller man, is a registered Democrat poll watcher in Philadelphia and an elected member of the Democratic Committee in that city.

It's hard to square the large message of "PEACE" on the front door of one of the houses the two men leave in the video with statements by Shabazz that "It's time to Kill Some Crackers! You're gonna have to Kill their babies!" Archived views of Jackson's web site (now scrubbed) are equally vile.

But even more troubling are the
accusations of J. Christian Adams, a former Dept. of Justice lawyer, who recently testified before the U.S. Civil Rights Commission that his political bosses at DOJ were "hostile" to enforcing any law where blacks victimized whites. "Payback time" is the attitude Adams observed while still at Justice.

With all the phony charges of racism directed at Tea Partiers without a shred of evidence, one might think that the same standard would be applied here. Especially when the New Black Panthers seen here are so willing to make their racial hatred public. In the Tea Party case, reporters sought out elected GOP leaders asking them to repudiate even the unfounded allegations. Can you find multiple examples of where elected Democrats are asked to do the same here?

The answer to that last question is an unequivocal no. 

I've not seen Congressmen denouncing the racism and bigotry so evident in the video.

I've not seen a mainstream media frenzy over calls to kill "crackers and their babies". 

I've not seen calls for the rejection of the politics of hate from the Southern Poverty Law Center.

Why is that?  Can anyone answer the question?

Wouldn't it be great for Obama to step forward and charge the New Black Panther Party with "acting stupidly"?

It isn't going to happen.  It doesn't fit the meme. 

The fact is that only by degree are the ideologies of the New Black Panther Party, liberals in Congress, the Obama administration and the MSM different.  Only by degree.

It's the only logical conclusion to come to given the absolute lack of outrage.

And it disgusts me.

I can see November from my backyard.

Stan:

The main reason that the charges were dismissed by the Obama Department Of Justice is that a lot of the Obama appointees there are members of the New Black Panther Party. From the Attorney General on down to the most of his immediate staff. I would not be surprised to learn that Barry, himself, is a member in good standing of the NBPP. Another thing that I have noticed. Outfits like the Southern Poverty Law Center, kept a pretty low profile during the last Administration and only surfaced again when a Democrat got into the White House.

jim m:

The MSM will never cover anything that is derogatory to the left. Nor will it cover anything that would be detrimental to the left's efforts to fix elections permanently in their favor.

The whole reason that Weigel was employed at the Post was that the MSM is so far removed from the center and right sides of political thought that they were continually overlooking key stories. The answer was to employ someone with the purpose of seeking out those stories to preemptively counter them. It was never about covering the news better. It was always about covering for the left more effectively.

This November is likely to see an extreme amount of violence aimed at white and conservative voters. Obama will whip up supporters like the SEIU and New Black Panther Party to assault and intimidate his opposition.

The reason the dems are doing what they are on capitol hill is that they expect to win in November and they anticipate doing everything necessary to make it happen. Sending out proxy's to beat up the opposition and prevent them from reaching the polling place is just the start.

Obama has given the clear message to the New Black Panthers that they have the DOJ backing to do whatever they please in service of obama's desires.

As I said over n the SEIU thread:

Laws exist for the punishing and suppression of the opposition. Nothing else.

Obama does not believe in the laws being enforced fairly. He believes that he has the power so the laws exist for his own purposes and to serve him alone. Law enforcement is at his sole discretion and is not to be used against his supporters no matter what they do.

Maybe in Philly where there is a vast majority and an inbred culture that even begins to allow bullshit like that to happen.

I can safely say if anything even remotely approaching something like that indecent in Philadelphia happened around here there would be 'unintended' consequences.

Video evidence is hard to refute, especially coming from multiple sources. Holder and his subordinates will have much to answer for when the House reconvenes in 2012.

This week the DOJ will decide on the Ike Brown case:
http://pajamasmedia.com/blog/the-ike-brown-case-is-the-doj-about-to-fail-another-race-based-test/?singlepage=true

They will decide whether it is OK for a black democrat to racially intimidate white voters and threaten them with imprisonment.

My guess is that they will once again choose to be on the side of racism and that they will choose against democracy and in favor of dictatorship.

Don't count obama's chickens before the come home to roost. The dems are fully expecting to suffer losses but they also expect to be able to steal enough of the elections to get their way. This is not about democracy to hem it is about power and holding on to it.

They are in power which to them means that they make the rules and enforce the rules in whatever way they choose. That means stuffing the ballot box a la ACORN and Ike Brown. That means threatening voters with jail or violent beatings a la Ike Brown and the New Black Panthers. That means whatever it takes to win is acceptable and there is no fear of prosecution as long as they win.

Remember Alinski's rules

"The third rule of ethics of means and ends is that in war the end justifies almost any means...." p.29

"The seventh rule... is that generally success or failure is a mighty determinant of ethics...." p.34

"The man of action views the issue of means and ends in pragmatic and strategic terms. He has no other problem; he thinks only of his actual resources and the possibilities of various choices of action. He asks of ends only whether they are achievable and worth the cost; of means, only whether they will work. ... The real arena is corrupt and bloody." p.24

We will be lucky if an election is held in November. We will be exceptionally lucky if we are allowed to win any victory no matter how small.

1. There is no legal definition for "hate group," which is why even the FBI doesn't track "hate groups."

The SPLC uses the term "hate group" precisely because it is meaningless. This allows the SPLC to smear any of their perceived opponents without charging them with any actual crimes.

In short, it is a fund-raising ploy.

2. The SPLC is a private fund-raising group with nearly $190 MILLION donor-dollars on hand. It has no mandate and receives no external review or oversight.

The SPLC has no authority, moral or otherwise, to designate anyone as anything. Legitimate journalists and responsible news organizations should not use the spurious and deliberately misleading term "hate group."

3. Finally, NOT ONE of the SPLC's top ten, highest paid executives is a minority, much less an immigrant. http://wp.me/pCLYZ-3r

While the SPLC displays a "diverse" Board of Directors on its website, including Julian Bond, all of the Directors, with the exception of SPLC Co-founder Joe Levin, are unpaid advisers with no impact on SPLC policy or personnel. It's nothing more than simple PR "brown-washing". http://wp.me/pCLYZ-p

The last "Whites only" sign in Montgomery hangs in the boardroom of the SPLC. Some "experts."

You got a better chance of seeing that Post Turtles' passport & school records.
