The J. Christian Adams matter is getting a little traction. Even the Philadelphia Inquirer felt obliged to put an AP version on its website.
On Election Day 2008, a couple of thugs at polling place at 1221 Fairmount St., Philadelphia made racially disparaging comments and brandished weapons at poll watchers and voters. The thugs were black and members of a group called the New Black Panther Party.
After the election, the Justice Department brought a voter intimidation case against them. Adams was among the attorneys who pursued the case and won an entry of default after the defendants ignored the charges. Before the final judgment could be rendered though, the case was ordered dismissed. This was in May 2009,
On May 14, 2010, Adams resigned from the Department and went public a few weeks later with what has been occurring. He wrote that “the dismissal is part of a creeping lawlessness infusing our government institutions” and that “citizens would be shocked to learn about the open and pervasive hostility within the Justice Department to bringing civil rights cases against nonwhite defendants on behalf of white victims”.
Adams noted that this put “core American principles of equality before the law and freedom from racial discrimination . . . at risk”.
Adams has talked about this at length on Fox News and it has been a matter of discussion on talk radio. Still, there is a sheep-like segment of this country that will dismiss what Adams is saying out-of-hand solely because he has used those venues. To them, I say prepare to be sheared.
The corruption on display in the New Black Panther Party matter isn’t that much different than that which occurred in the Gerald Walpin matter.
