Do The Right Thing; Get The Obama Smackdown

Remember the voter intimidation by the Black Panthers at a polling place in Philly during the 2008 presidential elections?

On May 29th, 2009, the charges brought against three members of the New Black Panther Party involved in voter intimidation were dropped.

Charges Against ‘New Black Panthers’ Dropped by Obama Justice Dept.

Charges brought against three members of the New Black Panther Party for Self-Defense under the Bush administration have been dropped by the Obama Justice Department, FOX News has learned.

The charges stemmed from an incident at a Philadelphia polling place on Election Day 2008 when three members of the party were accused of trying to threaten voters and block poll and campaign workers by the threat of force — one even brandishing what prosecutors call a deadly weapon.

The three black panthers, Minister King Samir Shabazz, Malik Zulu Shabazz and Jerry Jackson were charged in a civil complaint in the final days of the Bush administration with violating the voter rights act by using coercion, threats and intimidation. Shabazz allegedly held a nightstick or baton that prosecutors said he pointed at people and menacingly tapped it. Prosecutors also say he “supports racially motivated violence against non-blacks and Jews.”

The Obama administration won the case last month, but moved to dismiss the charges on May 15.

Voting Rights Section Chief Christopher Coates did the right thing and now he is receiving the usual Obama smackdown treatment.

Justice transfers Panthers pursuer out of D.C. office

The veteran Justice Department voting rights section chief who recommended going forward on a civil complaint against members of the New Black Panther Party after they disrupted a Pennsylvania polling place in last year’s elections has been removed from his post and transferred to the U.S. attorney’s office in South Carolina.

Justice Department officials confirmed Monday that Christopher Coates, who signed off on the complaint’s filing in federal court in Philadelphia in January accusing the party and three of its members of civil rights violations, would begin his new assignment next month.

The dismissal resulted in outrage by some Republican members of Congress and in a formal investigation by the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights, which subpoenaed Mr. Coates and J. Christian Adams, the lead attorney in the case, to testify on why the complaint was dismissed. The commission also is seeking documents to explain why the charges were dropped just as a federal judge was about to approve sanctions.

Justice Department spokeswoman Tracy Schmaler on Monday said that as a general policy, the department does not comment on personnel matters, but she said she could confirm that Mr. Coates continues to be a Justice employee and will begin an 18-month detail with the U.S. attorney’s office in South Carolina, beginning in January.

Ms. Schmaler also said the decision to move Mr. Coates to a new position within the department had nothing to do with the New Black Panther Party case but was the result of conversations Mr. Coates initiated with officials within the Civil Rights Division earlier this year.

She did not elaborate.

Mr. Coates declined to comment and referred inquiries Monday to the department’s public affairs office.

Obama, the DOJ, the Black Panthers, ACORN and the U.S. Census; we are in for one hell of a ride come the 2010 elections.

  1. Surely no one is too surprised. It is my feeling that the “New Black Panther Party” is the vanguard of Obama’s “Civilian Police Force”, and they will be ready and waiting for us when we begin our move towards housecleaning of congress in 2010. Then as it comes closer to Nov.4, we’d better watch out. There will be some sort of civil disturbance making it necessary to activat this so-called civilian police force. As Biden would say “mark my words”.

  2. This is being done for one reason, and only one reason: to incite violence. The thought of the ruling class is that if ordinary Americans see a bunch of uniformed, militant blacks running around beating people up that we’ll be forced to “defend” ourselves and we’ll starting breaking out some of those guns they’re so scared of, and they can declare martial law.

    Let’s not fall into that trap.

  3. According to an article today in WND on Dec 16 Obama signed an executive order for foreign police to be on our land and have jurisdiction over our constitution and our FBI. He lifted a restraint on a law passed by Reagan in 1983. Goodbye, US sovereignty. We MUST get this freak out of our oval office immediately or we are doomed for a very long time!!

  4. For what it’s worth, I think the Black Liberation/New Black Panther group (“Rev”.Wright), the communist group (Ayers and others) and the Islamaic Radicals, and the crazy Green movement (al gore and others) have all joined together to fight Liberty and Freedom. Each on its own would find the fight slow but when joined together there is strength.The vote will be put to test in Nov.”They” will be allowed to intimidate the Patriot voter at every turn. So go to the polls in groups, take your video camera, and have you thumb on 911 at all times.
