The Washington Times has done a great job of covering the legal issues concerning the New Black Panther Party (NBPP). I posted the other day about how the DOJ authorized the dismissal of a civil suit against the NBPP for voter intimidation in Philadelphia on election day. While Professor Gates, Daddy O, and all the usual suspects are crying racism over the Cambridge incident, they should be reading this.
WARNING: SOME MAY FIND THIS OFFENSIVE! From the Times:
The Department of Justice recently dropped the conviction of Jerry Jackson member of the “New Black Panther Party for Self-Defense” (NBPP). The Washington Times has covered the Black Panther reversal at the Department of Justice revealing,
"Associate Attorney General Thomas J. Perelli, No.3 official in the Obama Justice Department, was consulted and ultimately approved a decision in May to reverse course and drop a civil complaint accusing three members of the New Black Panther Party of intimidating voters in Philadelphia during November's election, according to interviews."
It all began when Mr. Jackson stood outside a Philadelphia polling area with Malik Zulu Shabazz and another New Black Panther member during the 2008 presidential election. They later faced charges for intimidating voters on November 4th, 2008. Appointed to be a poll watcher in 2008 for the Democratic Party and the Obama campaign, Mr. Jackson is also an elected member of Philadelphia's 14th Ward Democratic Committee.
The NBPP member has not stayed away from expressing his views on a social media site like MySpace. Mr. Jackson's(WARNING DISTURBING CONTENT) MySpace site is chock full of disturbing images with explicit racial overtones. A sample of some of the phrases and images on his MySpace page include:
"BLACK POWER,BLACK LOVE,BLACK UNITY,BLACK MINDS,KILLIN CRAKKKAS"
"F*** Whitey's Christmas"
An image of an execution scene from the cult hit film "Pulp Fiction"
A photo of a man holding a sign saying, "DEPORT WHITE PEOPLE"
A derogatory anti-cop poster titled "BEWARE OF PIG"
An image of Saddam Hussein before his execution
A photo of a cop sitting next to a black child in a toy car. Beneath the image the phrase "Racial Profiling: It Starts Early"
A photoshopped movie poster of the "Bourne Supremacy" is re-worded to say "The Bourne White Supremacy" A swastika is added to Matt Damon's cheek, and the scope of his firearm is photoshopped to look as if he is about to shoot a black man. The "n" word is used to describe who "Matt Damon hates" in this movie poster. The phrase, "They should have just stayed in Africa" is photoshopped at the top of the image.
It is hard to believe such web content is coming from an elected party official in Philadelphia, yet Mr. Jackson has been appointed again to be a poll watcher for the upcoming Democratic Primary in Philadelphia's municipal election. Mr. Obama may think a White House "beer summit" will help smooth over racial ills, but his justice department is doing the country no favors when they give Jerry Jackson and Malik Zulu Shabazz a free pass.
Update 10:00pm: Mr. Jackson's MySpace page has been removed. A cached version is available through the link now.
Update 11:00pm: description of The Bourne Supremacy poster has been re-worded to show further detail.
Update July 31, 2009 10:30 am: The Washington Times Editorial page has come out with new information about the Justice Department's cover up in the New Black Panther Case, and Washington Times reporter Jerry Seper is writing that lawmakers on the Hill are wanting to take a second look into the panther case.
Remember all the hoopla over the Sonia Sotomayor cartoon depicting her as a pinata? Cries of racism assaulted the airwaves for days. Why are these racist scum given a pass? If it's because of their skin color, that in and of itself is racist. Dear Leader keeps proving who he REALLY is more and more.
I guess he DID learn something in Reverend Wright's church!
