Before we get wrongly accused of racism, you might recall that Eric Holder famously referred to the case against New Black Panther Party members who showed up to Philly voting stations in 2008 wielding clubs as demeaning to “my people“.
Guess what? They’re back…
This is a photo from the 14th Ward in Philadlephia.
They do this over in state-run media loving China, don’t they?
Via the Daily Caller:
Internal Department of Justice emails obtained by The Daily Caller show Attorney General Eric Holder’s communications staff has collaborated with the left-wing advocacy group Media Matters for America in an attempt to quell news stories about scandals plaguing Holder and America’s top law enforcement agency.
Dozens of pages of emails between DOJ Office of Public Affairs Director Tracy Schmaler and Media Matters staffers show Schmaler, Holder’s top press defender, working with Media Matters to attack reporters covering DOJ scandals. TheDC obtained the emails through a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request.
Emails sent in September and November 2010 show Schmaler working with Media Matters staffer Jeremy Holden on attacking news coverage of the New Black Panther Party voter intimidation scandal.
Holden attacked former DOJ Civil Rights Division attorneys J. Christian Adams and Hans von Spakovsky on Sept. 20, 2010 for what he called an attempt “to reignite the phony New Black Panther Party scandal.”
This story should be a bombshell to the American people, but let’s see how the Obama-friendly media spins it. The reason any government official coordinating with the media is big news is because this is what they do in Communist countries. It’s propoganda.
The fact that they coordinated with Media Matters is even more troublesome, because in another Daily Caller investigation, the group had bragged about writing the ‘prime time’ news for other media outlets.
Coordinated, undeniable, media bias.
Was there ever any doubt that Eric Holder’s Justice Department played a role in getting the charges against the New Black Panthers voter intimidation case dismissed?
From Beltway Confidential:
A federal court in Washington, DC, held today that political appointees appointed by President Obama did interfere with the Department of Justice’s prosecution of the New Black Panther Party.
The ruling came as part of a motion by the conservative legal watch dog group Judicial Watch, who had sued the DOJ in federal court to enforce a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request for documents pertaining to the the New Black Panthers case. Judicial Watch had secured many previously unavailable documents through their suit against DOJ and were now suing for attorneys’ fees.
Obama’s DOJ had claimed Judicial Watch was not entitled to attorney’s fees since “none of the records produced in this litigation evidenced any political interference whatsoever in” how the DOJ handled the New Black Panther Party case. But United States District Court Judge Reggie Walton disagreed.
Human Events adds:
“The documents reveal that political appointees within DOJ were conferring about the status and resolution of the New Black Panther Party case in the days preceding the DOJ’s dismissal of claims in that case, which would appear to contradict Assistant Attorney General Perez’s testimony that political leadership was not involved in that decision.”
The family of George Zimmerman is being pretty naive to think that the Attorney General of the United States would arrest somebody just for trying to incite their race-crazed base to violence. Remember when he refused to prosecute the New Black Panthers for voter intimidation because it ‘demeaned his people’? So what makes the Zimmerman’s think that this would be any less demeaning to his people?
From the Daily Caller:
In a letter to Attorney General Eric Holder on Monday, obtained exclusively by The Daily Caller, a family member of George Zimmerman asked the nation’s top law enforcement officer why he has chosen to not arrest members of the New Black Panther Party for their rhetoric — some of which may fit the federal government’s definition of a hate crime — throughout the Trayvon Martin case.
The family member believes the reason Holder hasn’t made those arrests is because he, like the members of the New Black Panther Party, is black.
“I am writing you to ask you why, when the law of the land is crystal clear, is your office not arresting the New Black Panthers for hate crimes?” the family member wrote to Holder.
“The Zimmerman family is in hiding because of the threats that have been made against us, yet the DOJ has maintained an eerie silence on this matter. These threats are very public. If you haven’t been paying attention just do a Google search and you will find plenty. Since when can a group of people in the United States put a bounty on someone’s head, circulate Wanted posters publicly, and still be walking the streets?”
The New Black Panthers have issued ultimatums to the Sanford authorities, saying they want Zimmerman arrested “dead or alive.” They have placed a bounty on Zimmerman’s head, and have called for the building of an army of vigilantes to track him down and effect a citizen’s arrest.

An American family is living in fear due to what can only be considered government approved threats to their well being. If not approved, tolerated.What kind of country are we living in when armed, paramilitary, Marxist thugs like the New Black Panthers can openly threaten and intimidate American citizens, and are protected from any legal repercussions by the US government? First, armed Black Panthers stood in front of polling places in 2008, in clear case of voter intimidation, and the DOJ dropped the charges. Now, they’ve put a bounty on a man’s head and promised a race war if he is not arrested, in violation of several laws…
Read the rest to find out what laws are being violated…
The Zimmerman family’s efforts are commendable though – they certainly do call Holder out, don’t they? Flat-out issuing a challenge that he will not arrest those responsible solely because they are black. Doesn’t that make Eric Holder a racist?
President Obama? No.
Eric Holder? No.
Think, real man…
Allen West condemned the recent $10,000 bounty placed by the New Black Panther Party on George Zimmerman’s head. Why? Because West is a born leader, and not a spineless racial reactionary like the President and Eric Holder.
Tell us, Mr. President – Where’s the beer summit? Where’s the request for toning down the rhetoric? Where is the denunciation of the bounty, or Spike Lee’s idiotic re-tweeting of what he thought was Zimmerman’s address?
You won’t see them, because the leader of the free world leads from behind.
Allen West leads from the front.
Here is West’s statement:
I vehemently condemn the bounty poster emanating from the New Black Panther Party putting a $10,000 ransom up for the capture of George Zimmerman and call upon the US Department of Justice to prosecute their actions, clearly a hate crime. We have seen this type of abhorrent behavior from this group previously in 2008 as part of a voter intimidation action, it is reprehensible. To openly solicit for the death of an American citizen, with reward, is not in keeping with the laws of due process which governs this Constitutional Republic. However, this is to be expected when irrational voices dominate our public dialogue and are fueled by an ideological driven media. I am concerned that that the tragic death of Trayvon Martin is being hijacked by malcontents.
The Trayvon Martin case is becoming a frightening issue, and professional violence-inciting racists are capitalizing on the tragedy in epic fashion.
Members of the New Black Panther Party are offering a $10,000 reward for the “capture” of George Zimmerman, the Neighborhood Watch volunteer who shot Trayvon Martin.
New Black Panther leader Mikhail Muhammad announced the reward during a protest in Sanford Saturday. And when asked whether he was inciting violence, Muhammad replied defiantly: “An eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth.”
The bounty announcement came moments after members of the group called for the mobilization of 10,000 black men to capture Zimmerman, who shot Trayvon in a gated Sanford community on Feb. 26.
Muhammad said members of his group would search for Zimmerman themselves in Maitland — where the 28-year old worked before the shooting, employees there told the Orlando Sentinel. He declined to say when the group would begin their search.
So where is the post-racial President, and his calming influence? Where is the man who somehow had the time to have a beer summit with Henry Louis Gates, Jr. and Sgt. James Crowley, and referred to the incident as a “teachable moment”?
Marathon Pundit also asks, where’s Eric Holder?
Clearly not all of the facts are out in this tragic case. I’m waiting for Attorney General Eric Holder, the man who dropped the charges against the neo-Panthers in the Philly case in 2009, to denounce this vigilante behavior.
Yesterday racism-inciter Jesse Jackson added to the frenzy by declaring that “blacks are under attack.”
The reward was announced at a protest, one that included a chant of “freedom or death.”
The answer of course is, they have to figure out the political angle first. If it isn’t going to help the President win reelection, then it simply isn’t worth their time. Meanwhile, people are being tempted with thousands in cash to go vigilante in the community.
Of course, the New Black Panther Party is known for this kind of violent rhetoric. Back in 2000, the party’s leader, Malik Zulu Shabazz, was inciting violence in the community when he said:
“When we see caskets rolling and funerals in the black community … we will see caskets and funerals in the community of our enemy.”
