Attorney General Eric Holder– the guy who called us a “nation of cowards” on racial matters– sues Arizona, but lets these guys off the hook:
Vodpod videos no longer available.
They aren’t being prosecuted solely on the basis of their race– they are black, while the complainants are white.
But this is a voter intimidation case– Democrats blocking Republicans from a polling station– not a hate crime. That’s all this really is when it comes right down to it. It was never about race until Holder’s DOJ dropped the case based solely on race. The case was already won on a default judgment. Race should not even have come into play here. But it does! And that’s because the Left sees everything through the filter of race. They take what should have been a simple voter intimidation case and reduce it to race. Oh, I know the Black Panthers are racist, but their racism isn’t a crime. Their racism isn’t what’s on trial here– their illegal acts at that polling station is. That’s the issue here– voter intimidation. But the ideologues within the DOJ decided to make it about race, and when they did that, the outcome was inevitable. It had to be buried.
So choose which vision of America you will serve, gentle readers– a color blind vision for America, or a RACE-OBSESSED one that divides people along racial lines and then picks the winners and losers.
