Obama Protecting Your Right To Vote—Unless You`re White



After

Gatesgate
turned

white voters off of Obama
, some Republican Party
apparatchiks have started doing something

completely out of character
—using common sense. 



Instead of cowering
from
“racism”
allegations, they are

using
the enormous unpopularity of

Obama`s response to Harvard Professor Henry Louis Gates`
arrest
to pull the

“post-racial”
veneer off our

race-obsessed president
.


During the 2008 election campaign, the

McCain campaign
and the Republican National
Committee

refused
to bring up

Rev. Wright
`s anti-white rantings—even going as far
as
attacking
the North Carolina GOP for mentioning it.
But now the National Republican Senatorial Committee has
put

ads
on Drudge Report asking visitors to sign a
petition
criticizing Obama`s response.


GOP strategist George Fletcher was quoted

saying
that Obama got
“really close to
losing the image he has as a post-racial president. For
a few days, the question for a lot of people became,
`Wait a minute. Is he the president of the United
States? Or is he just the

president of minorities
?`” 


Fletcher predicted lower black turnout rates in 2010,
and promised: “Three to four percent of the

white vote
didn`t

come out
last time. 
They`re coming out this time.”


Of course, as long as Henry Louis Gates keeps his mouth
shut—not
a sure thing
—there may be little more mileage the
GOP can get out of this particular story. 
But, fortunately for the Republicans, Obama has
provided plenty of other fodder—for example the
non-response from the Justice Department to the
New
Black Panther Party`s voter intimidation
.


On Election Day, three leaders of the New Black Panther
Party,


King Samir Shabazz, Malik Zulu Shabazz and Jerry
Jackson,

were

videotaped
in paramilitary uniformed wielding
nightsticks outside of a polling station in Philadelphia
intimidating poll observers and voters. 
Poll watcher Bartle Bull signed an

affidavit
stating



“I watched the two uniformed men confront voters, and
attempt to intimidate voters. They were positioned in a
location that forced every voter to pass in close
proximity to them. The weapon was openly displayed and
brandished in plain sight of voters…



“Their clear purpose and intent was to intimidate voters
with whom they did not agree. Their views were, in part,
made apparent by the uniform of the organization the two
men wore and the racially charged statements they made.
For example, I heard the shorter man make a statement
directed toward white poll observers that `you are about
to be
ruled by the black man,
 cracker.`”

Like Gates`
nemesis Officer Crowley, who taught

racial profiling classes
, Bull has impeccable
anti-racist credentials. 
He worked as a civil rights lawyer in the 1960s
where he filed lawsuits against municipalities in
Mississippi that he said were disenfranchising African
Americans. 
Bull concluded, that the actions by the New Black
Panthers qualified
as
the most blatant form of voter intimidation I have
encountered in my life in political campaigns in many
states, even going back to the work I did in Mississippi
in the 1960s.”


The US Commission on Civil Rights filed a complaint
against the New Black Panthers. They refused to show up
in court or even respond to the charges. 
Just as sanctions were about to brought, the
Justice Department dismissed the USCCR`s complaint
because


"the facts and the law did not support pursuing"

it.  Of
course, Justice did not really give any elaboration as
to what particular facts were missing and why the law
wasn`t violated.

Initially,
there was not a lot of noise about this outrage. But as
conservatives and Republicans got emboldened by Obama`s

blatant anti-white agenda
, even mushy Congressmen
like Frank Wolf have been demanding to know how high up
the Justice Department the decision went, as well as
calling for

Attorney General Eric Holder
to

re-file
the case. 

Last week, the Washington Times

broke
the story that the dismissal went at least as
high as



Associate Attorney General Thomas J. Perrelli,
the
number three official at the Justice Department. 
Perrelli incidentally

raised
$500,000 for Obama. 

The

USCCR
—which acts independently of the Obama
Administration—is not letting up on the Justice
Department. It wrote a letter to Eric Holder on Monday
once again demanding that he give a full explanation of
why the complaint was dismissed. The USCCR accused his
Department of


being
"non-responsive"
as well as making
"factual errors
and … questionable legal claims”
. 
[Letter, August 10, 2009 (PDF)]


Justice Department spokeswoman


Tracy Schmaler
continues to give absolutely no
defense or justification for the decision beyond stating
that after a
"thorough review of the allegations and the evidence"
,

it was decided to dismiss the complaint. 
For good measure she added:


"We are committed to vigorous enforcement of the laws
protecting anyone exercising his or her right to vote
“.

Justice Dept. pressed again on Panthers case

Just how
“committed”
is


the Obama Justice Department
? 


While it is apparently fine for black thugs wielding
weapons to call white voters and poll observers
crackers, Justice takes a very, very broad definition of
voting rights violations when the disenfranchised are
minorities. 
For example:




  • it




    has gone after
    Fort Bend County, Texas for failing
    to
    implement
    an effective bilingual election program for
    Spanish-speaking voters”
    ,
    arguing that "the Voting Rights Act requires Fort Bend County to provide meaningful
    and equal electoral access to its Hispanic citizens who
    have limited English proficiency.”


Of course, all naturalized US Citizens are

supposed
to have learned English as a condition of
citizenship!


  • In another attack on white voters, the Justice Department
    filed a complaint in March against the town of Lake
    Park, FL.


As in much of South Florida, the town`s white population
is aging, while large numbers of Haitian immigrants
flood in. 
The non-Hispanic white population was only 38% in the
2000 census, with blacks making up 48%, and Hispanics,
Asians, and multiracials making up the remaining 14%.


But because whites are older and more likely to be US
Citizens, they still make up 53% of the electorate,
while blacks are only 38%—a fact that the Justice
Department does not mention in its press releases. 


The small town elects its four commissioners in an
at large
election. 
For whatever reason, no blacks have been elected thus
far. So The Justice Department is demanding that the
town divide up its 9,000 residents into four

gerrymandered
districts where
black
persons would constitute a majority of the citizen
voting age population in at least one of the districts”
.

There are no allegations of disenfranchisement or
intimidation against blacks. But according to the

US Attorney`s office
, the
“elections are
characterized by the use of practices that impair black
electoral success”.



  • The state of Georgia passed a common-sense measure
    requiring that new
    voters have their citizenship status checked
    among
    the Social Security and Driver`s license databases. 
    Predictably the ACLU and MALDEF filed suit. 
    And a Judge ended up passed the decision to the
    Obama Justice Department. 
    Sure enough it ruled that
    “this flawed
    system frequently subjects a disproportionate number of
    African-American,

    Asian
    and/or Hispanic voters to additional, and more
    importantly, erroneous burdens on the right to register
    to vote.”

    spike voter citizenship checks in Georgia

Just as in Florida, it`s not claimed that there is
anything discriminatory about the rule. But because it
disproportionately
affects minorities—who of course make up a
disproportionate number of

illegal aliens
and non-citizens—then it`s not
allowed.


If the GOP has any brains, it

would jump on this theme:
Obama`s justice department
will start witch hunts to get quotas for black elected
officials, and give illegal aliens, non-English
speakers, and non-citizens the right to vote, but it`s
perfectly OK with weapon wielding black thugs telling
“crackers”
that they`re going to
“be ruled by the black man.”


The GOP should consider (gasp!) actually, you know,
protecting
the voting rights of 90% of its voters.
