In emotional and personal testimony, an ex-Justice official who quit over the handling of a voter intimidation case against the New Black Panther Party accused his former employer of instructing attorneys in the civil rights division to ignore cases that involve black defendants and white victims.
J. Christian Adams, testifying Tuesday before the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights, said that “over and over and over again,” the department showed “hostility” toward those cases. He described the Black Panther case as one example of that — he defended the legitimacy of the suit and said his “blood boiled” when he heard a Justice official claim the case wasn’t solid. “It is false,” Adams said of the claim. “We abetted wrongdoing and abandoned law-abiding citizens,” he later testified.

This story isn’t getting a whole lot of attention from the MSM (as you can imagine) mainly because it is so devastating to the Obama administration but I assure you it isn’t going away. Eric Holder’s Justice Department has been exposed for what it is- a corrupt, racially bias organization that refuses to dispense equal justice under the law. Now one of the lawyers deeply involved in the Black Panther case has resigned in disgust and become a whistle-blower.
Let’s be very clear: at this point this has grown beyond the Black Panther case that brought this despicable behavior to light. It is about the perception Americans have about whether or not we can rely on one of most important institutions to dispense colorblind justice. Eric Holder has been the wrong man for this job from the start unless President Obama approves of his DOJ’s conduct. If that is the case what could be more shocking? While many on the right would expect as much this has to be a blow to our liberal countrymen who voted for “HOPE” & “CHANGE”.
The DOJ’s conduct under Eric Holder is either that of a rogue agency that authorizes its lawyers to look the other way at crimes committed by blacks against whites, or it is wholly sanctioned by the Obama administration. I can’t decide which is worse. In any event Holder’s conduct and administration of the DOJ has become an embarrassment to his boss. Holder staying there will only further erode the dwindling confidence Americans have in their federal government.
For everyone’s sake he must go. Now!
