Why wasn't this on the front page of every news paper in America, and on every televised news program? This is an outrage, and needs to be addressed. Why is this allowed to happen? Is it because they are black panthers? Why does the current administration allow this kind of criminal activity flourish in America today?

I didn't watch your video link because I'm listening to some awesome music over the headphones. However, unless this is a new case, I already saw and heard about this months ago. Yes, it IS an outrage.

The undeniable fact is, the reason this wasn't splashed all over the headlines and primetime news is because there is an alliance totally committed to the liberal party. That alliance is quite powerful and influential. It is: Every single major newspaper, 95% of college professors, every single major local news channel, and every single major cable news channel with the one exception of FOX News. This alliance has a policy of not repeating anything publicly that would give any support to the Conservative parties, of which I include the Tea Party. What they say and publish is 100% praise for the liberal party and 100% condemnation for the Conservative party.

This fact is known by every politician, college, and news outlet in the country but obviously the only one that would say anything are the few small Consvertative newspapers and FOX News. Republicans (unless out of office) don't dare talk about it because the liberal alliance will immediately brand them a nutty conspiracy theorist and they'll just lose their job.

I hate that this alliance exists, and I hate that a large portion of the American public is completely oblivious to it.

I was talking to my Liberal Progressive Socialist brother the other night. He is married to a female professor at the University of Wisconsin and she is also Liberal Progressive Socialist and says that most of the professors at the college are Liberal Progressives. Anyway, my brother got steaming mad at me when the subject of FOX News came up. He admitted to me that he never watched FOX News. "But," he said,"all the information I've gotten on the internet as well as all the professors that I talk with say that FOX is a Right Wing organization that exists only for propaganda purposes."

I mean, just look at that, at face value. Because the Left Wing websites and Left Wing Underground News emails, and college professors say that FOX News is evil, and a bunch of Right Wing liars, then it must be true.

I didn't even bother trying to make him understand that the cherry-picked sources he uses to get all his information are all in cahoots and seek to tear down the one source of truth we have on TV (FOX). He would have blown a gasket. Instead I changed the subject, else we wouldn't be on speaking terms right now.

As far as the Black Panthers using intimidation at the voting precincts... all the Conservatives are left to do is say, "Just imagine the firestorm that would have occurred if a Conservative group did this." Seriously. Just imagine. It absolutely WOULD be all over the TV and newspapers. It would be on page 1 of the New York Times for months. So there is the rub.

If it's bad for Conservatives, it's headlines. If it's bad for liberals, it doesn't even warrant mentioning at all. Ever.

Do you wonder why the story about the massage therapist who was sexually intimidated by Al Gore, isn't being reported? There's a lot riding on that one. All the global warming fanatics are shaking in their boots. The Liberal Alliance is doing everything in their power to keep that story under wraps.

I remember this, it went away pretty quickly. The accusations made aren't really surprising to me. I and other white employee's face discrimination daily at work from black managers who sued to get their positions. The company can't fire them, for any reason. Their favorites seem to be, "whitey", "cracker" and "white boy". If the situation were reversed, any white employee would've been terminated on the spot. It's gotten to the point that several of the new hires, all black, have taken to taunting white employee's about the fact that they walk around all day and watch the "crackers" do all the work.

I'm not a racist person, never have been and it irritates me to no end that they so proudly are. That and they're enabled to do so by the fact that white people can't bring a suit to court for discrimination. Well they can, in theory, but good luck getting anywhere with it. Having a black president hasn't changed a thing. Hate is still hate and there still seems to be plenty of it to go around. More sickening, one of these managers is a deacon.

I remember when this first happened, and I have been following it closely. Yeah, it's sad...even without the accusations, it is so obviously a political decision that it should be getting far more attention. Now, though, they are just playing it off as an upset former employee or just a difference of opinion. Put it this way, I deal with the U.S. Attorneys office in my district on a regular basis, and they do NOT offer plea reductions on anything but the most unique of cases, let alone dismissing them. Of course there is something else going on here, but it's just business as usual, regardless of who is in the White House.

Zounds!

It didn't work for me either, until I right-clicked it and selected "open link in a new window." That worked.

Wow! Great tip Frrostedman, it worked. I had seen the story on FOX, it is an outrage. The coverup and the Black Panther with a club are both an outrage. Reminds me a few years ago at out polling place, someone was adament in line about telling everyone how to vote on one of the issues. Most everyone let him go on and on, but someone said something to him. The guy was in total violation of the law, intimidating people who were waiting in the line to vote. Total violation of Federal Law, this Black Panther is way over the top, standing with a club at the doorway. Outrageous is too mild of a term.

More outrage. Get this:

Ok what the black panthers did was stand in front of a polling place with military uniforms on, and threaten voters with racial slurs and a night stick. The Bush Administration brought a case against them in civil court. The next part is staggering: The Obama Administration then took over and agreed to dismiss all charges, as long as they agreed not to carry deadly weapons near a polling place again, "until 2012". WHAT?

Ex-Official Accuses Justice Department of Racial Bias in Black Panther Case
Published July 06, 2010| FoxNews.com

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.

The department abandoned the New Black Panther case last year. It stemmed from an incident on Election Day in 2008 in Philadelphia, where members of the party were videotaped in front of a polling place, dressed in military-style uniforms and allegedly hurling racial slurs while one brandished a night stick.

The Bush Justice Department brought the first case against three members of the group, accusing them in a civil complaint of violating the Voter Rights Act. The Obama administration initially pursued the case, winning a default judgment in federal court in April 2009 when the Black Panther members did not appear in court. But then the administration moved to dismiss the charges the following month after getting one of the New Black Panther members to agree to not carry a "deadly weapon" near a polling place until 2012.

The Civil Rights Commission, which subpoenaed Adams, has been probing the incident since last year. Adams said he ignored department directives not to testify and eventually quit after he heard Assistant Attorney General Thomas Perez testify that there were concerns the Black Panther case was not supported by the facts.

Adams has described the case as open-and-shut and said Tuesday that it was a "very low moment" to hear Perez make that claim.

But he described the department's hostility toward that and other cases involving black defendants as "pervasive." Adams cited hostility in the department toward a 2007 voting rights case against a black official in Mississippi who was accused of trying to intimidate voters. Adams said that when the Black Panther case came up, he heard officials in the department say it was "no big deal" and "media-generated" and point to "Fox News" as the source.

But as the investigation unfolded, he said he discovered "indications" that the Black Panther Party was doing the "same thing" to supporters of former presidential candidate Hillary Clinton during the Democratic primary season in early 2008. He urged the commission to pursue testimony from other Justice officials to corroborate his story.

It's unclear how far the commission will get. The commissioners want to hear from Christopher Coates, the former chief of the Justice Department's voting section, but the commission claims the Justice Department is blocking Coates from testifying about why the case was dropped.

I just watched 2 former prosecutors on FOX News scratch their heads, without a clue as to why Obama would drop the charges and not pursue this case. As both prosecutors said, it's a slam dunk case and should have been pursued criminally, not just in Civil Court.

I'm still outraged at the deal that was struck: The defendants were allowed to go free as long as they wait until 2012 to bring any deadly weapons to a polling place again.

What year is the next presidential election, I wonder. 💡 🙄
