Just saw Geraldo Rivera with Malik Zulu Shabazz on his show. Geraldo, a Mexican supremacist racist himself, gave Zulu a good pasting and made him look like a fool.

What does this mean? Has Geraldo had a change of heart? I think not. What it means is that Geraldo knows where his bread is buttered and that he could not ignore this story except at his peril. Geraldo is a white hating, America hating La Raza supremacist who would rather this story be buried, but it has already caught fire and he either gets on the wagon or gets left behind it.

These black racists have been around for decades and when did Geraldo ever attack them before? He's only doing it now because his audience will migrate away if he ignores a story they consider important. This story has huge following and it's not going away any time soon.

Did The New Black Panther Party Help Get Obama Elected Through Voter Intimidation?
By George Leon at 11:17 am on Monday July 12, 2010

It’s bad enough that virulent, racist hate-speech like this goes on at all in America. But it’s going on Philadelphia. In my Southwest Center City neighborhood, in fact. The setting of the following video is at the Odunde Festival centered at South Street and Grays Ferry Avenue, an otherwise lovely celebration of African culture and African-American heritage. But for some, it’s an occasion for hatred. Here’s the video:
Yes, this uniformed member of the New Black Panther Party is actually saying that he hates all white people and yes, he is actually saying, “if you want freedom, you have to kill some crackers. You have to kill some of their babies.” Nice way to celebrate the festival, no?
But it gets better. In the next video, you see the same guy, again in uniform, this time wielding a night stick, “guarding” a polling place in the Fairmount section of Philadelphia during election day 2008.
Claiming to be “security,” he doesn’t hesitate to confront and question the man filming the incident. But the election commission does not hire New Black Panther Party members to guard polling places in Philadelphia. This is not security, it is voter intimidation. It’s a violation of Voting Rights Act and yes, it’s a federal offense. So this guy went to jail, right? No, it’s a little more complicated than that.
Turns out that the US Department of Justice dropped their investigation of voter intimidation by the New Black Panther Party, which had endorsed Obama and deployed its members to polling places in like manner nationwide. In fact, the DOJ's Inspector General told lawmakers that he was not empowered to investigate complaints of voter intimidation during the 2008 presidential election, according to the Washington Times. And until the Voting Rights Act violations emerged, the endorsement of the New Black Panther Party was posted on Barack Obama's web site.
Was this endorsement in any way connected to the Justice’s Department’s willingness to so easily dismiss the case?
But it gets even better. US Department of Justice attorney J. Christian Adams, one of the attorneys on the case, has come forward and accused the Department of racial bias for dropping the charges. He claims there is “a pervasive and open hostility towards equal enforcement of the law” and supports his allegations with numerous case examples. But what is perhaps equally disturbing is the mainstream media’s apparent total lack of interest in the case. Except for Fox News, both the original case and especially whistleblower Adams’ testimony has been virtually off the radar screen of all major media outlets. If you are not a Fox News viewer and are hearing about this for the first time, that is why.
And almost humorously if it wasn’t such a tragic and vile situation, the head of the New Black Panther Party is now claiming that attempts to draw attention to the situation (I guess such as this article) is part of a 'right-wing Republican conspiracy to demonize President Obama'.
In other words, violence-provoking hate speech, voter intimidation, violations of the Voting Rights Act, questionable actions by the Department of Justice and whistle blowing by DOJ attorneys is all business as usual and should be ignored. And apparently most media outlets agree with him.
Now just imagine if some Caucasian nut case donned white sheets or perhaps a brown shirt, carried a night stick and “guarded” some polling place in Philly on election day. Do you think that would get mainstream media attention? And if it turned out that members of his group had been deployed nationwide in such a manner? And that the Justice Department of the President who the group supported as a candidate dropped the charges? Can you even imagine such a scenario?
That just wouldn’t happen and in the unlikely event that it did, it would be THE STORY in all the mainstream media outlets for months on end. But no one seems to care about this story – except Fox News, for pity sake.
This is a tragic story about our country and our city. There is a need for healing but that can’t occur without open acknowledgement of the problem. And it’s an even sadder story for the journalistic profession and the so-called mainstream media who, for apparently political or ideological reasons, chooses to ignore it. What ever happened to honest, impartial journalism? What ever happened to transparency? What ever happened to Hope and Change?

DEROY MURDOCK: New Black Panther activists should have been prosecuted
SAN ANGELO, Texas — Voters at a precinct on Philadelphia’s Fairmont Street witnessed unusual sights and sounds on Election Day on Nov. 4, 2008. Two members of the New Black Panther Party, King Samir Shabazz and Jerry Jackson, stood within 15 feet of this polling station dressed in military-style black jackets, black berets and black combat boots. Shabazz wielded a two-foot-long night stick.
“Cracker, you are about to be ruled by a black man,” one of the New Black Panthers told a white voter. They taunted others as “white devils.” A black couple serving as GOP poll watchers felt endangered when the Panthers called them “race traitors.”
At an April 23 U.S. Civil Rights Commission hearing, Chris Hill, an eyewitness, explained under oath that he spoke with the male Republican pollster inside the precinct. “He was definitely shook up,” Hill testified. “And he told me that he was called a race traitor by Mr. Shabazz ... and that he was threatened if he stepped outside of the building, there would be hell to pay.”
Surely the Obama administration prosecuted Shabazz and Jackson for voter intimidation.
When they ignored late-term Bush administration charges of Voting Rights Act violations, federal district judge Stewart Dalzell issued a default ruling against Shabazz, Jackson, the New Black Panther Party and its chairman, Malik Zulu Shabazz (no relation to the other Shabazz).
Although career federal prosecutors won this case (arguing, among other things, that “There is never a good reason to bring a billy club to a polling station”), they were overruled by political appointees in Obama’s Justice Department who ordered them to dismiss the complaints against all parties except King Samir Shabazz. He was ordered not to exhibit a weapon within 100 feet of a Philadelphia precinct through Nov. 15, 2012. Pittsburgh seems fair game.
The May 15, 2009, case dismissal was timed perfectly for Jerry Jackson. During the 2008 incident, he was an elected member of Philadelphia’s 14th Ward Democratic Committee and a credentialed poll watcher for the Democratic Party and the Obama campaign. With the federal case safely behind him, Jackson watched the polls again in municipal elections on May 19, 2009.
This situation is even more outrageous given the unvarnished bigotry of those involved.
“You want freedom, you gonna have to kill some crackers,” King Samir Shabazz says on a National Geographic/YouTube video. “You gonna have to kill some of they (sic) babies.”
“F. Whitey’s Christmas,” read a message on Jerry Jackson’s MySpace page, until it was whitewashed once Kerry Picket uncovered it in the July 30, 2009, edition of the Washington Times. “BLACK UNITY, BLACK MINDS, KILLIN CRAKKKAS,” stated Jackson’s Web page.
The leftish Southern Poverty Law Center calls NBPP “a hate group based on the anti-white, anti-gay, and anti-Semitic views its leaders have repeatedly expressed.”
Why would the supposedly ethnically transcendent Obama administration distribute free passes to the black equivalent of Klansmen? Blame power lust and unequal justice under law.
J. Christian Adams, until recently a career attorney in the Justice Department’s Voting Rights Division, testified under oath last week about an increasingly radical DOJ before the U.S. Civil Rights Commission.
According to Adams, Deputy Assistant Attorney General Julie Fernandes last November instructed prosecutors on the “Motor Voter” law that governs voter registration.
Regarding that statute’s Section 8 — which requires that local officials purge their rolls of relocated, ineligible and dead voters — Adams recalls hearing Fernandes, an Obama political appointee, say: “We have no interest in enforcing this provision of the law. It has nothing to do with increasing turnout, and we are just not going to do it.” Such lawlessness, of course, invites ACORN-style vote fraud.
Adams also testified: “I was told by Voting Section management that cases are not going to be brought against black defendants on the benefit of white victims.”
Adams, who resigned from Justice in protest on June 1, encapsulated the Obama administration’s moral bankruptcy in this case. “We abetted wrongdoers and abandoned law-abiding citizens.”

Philadelphia during election day 2008.
Obama Appointee in Black Panther Case Must Answer For Failure

A situation involving voter intimidation caught on tape has now exploded, as a Justice Department lawyer resigns to be able to tell the truth to the American people that the Obama-Holder Justice Department is allowing voting-rights violations to go unpunished for political reasons. Those responsible must be made to answer for their betrayal of the public trust.
The Civil Rights Division at the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) has a noble mission: Make sure that no eligible citizen is denied their rights, especially the right to vote. That mandate has a special focus on race, because in darker days millions of American citizens were intimidated, threatened, or denied their right to vote simply because of the color of their skin.
Denying someone their civil rights because of race is a betrayal of the Constitution’s most sacred promises. We are all created equal, endowed with rights by our Creator, and the Constitution establishes a government to secure those rights for every American.
That’s why the threats caught on tape at a Philadelphia voting location are utterly deplorable. Several thugs of the New Black Panther Party stood at the door of a polling location with weapons in their hands, menacingly glaring at white Americans as they went by.
Fortunately, a couple intrepid patriots captured this illegal action on video. They even engaged them in conversation, confirming who they were and what they were doing.
In response to this clear and egregious case of voter intimidation, the Justice Department brought action against these Black Panthers. The defendants didn’t even have enough respect for the law to show up in court, and so the judge properly issued a default judgment against them.
Then Barack Obama was sworn in as president, and appointed Eric Holder attorney general. (Holder, who then promptly called America a nation of cowards on issues of race.) The new political appointee heading DOJ’s Civil Rights Division, Thomas Perez, hand-picked by Attorney General Holder and President Obama, dropped the case against the Black Panthers during the sentencing phase.
Dropped the case? Hadn’t the Justice Department already won? Yes, the government had already won. All they had to do was wait for the court to hand down its punishment.
But Thomas Perez and the Obama-Holder team decided to drop the case. Their reason? Perez had the audacity to say that there wasn’t enough evidence for the case to succeed. Evidently expecting that people would blindly ignore the fact that the Justice Department had already won, he said with a straight face that the evidence just wasn’t there.
As disgusting as this situation was, it looked like it was dead. President Obama had won the White House and chose to nominate far-left Eric Holder to lead the Justice Department, and then the two of them stacked DOJ with a raft of extremists like Thomas Perez who were willing to ignore gross injustices and lawbreaking for the sake of licking the hand of their racist allies at the New Black Panther Party.
(To back up this statement, just look at this video where one of these Black Panthers in this case, King Samir Shabazz, saying, “You gonna have to kill some crackers [white people]. You gonna have to kill some of their babies!” If you use racial slurs and talk about killing babies because of their skin color, then you’re a racist.)
Then two unexpected events brought this travesty back to life. First, the U.S. Civil Rights Commission launched an investigation. The investigation started to uncover and verify the facts, shining a spotlight on the inexcusable failure of the Obama-Holder DOJ to execute the judgment against these Black Panther lawbreakers.
Second, a brave lawyer from the Justice Department who had worked on this case, J. Christian Adams, had the courage to resign so that he could go public with the truth. Adams has taken to the airwaves and is now testifying before the Civil Rights Commission, calling for justice to prevail on the pathetic dereliction of duty of Barack Obama, Eric Holder, and Thomas Perez.
We say dereliction of duty, because the Constitution charges the president to “take care that the laws be faithfully executed.” Attorney General Holder serves as the chief law enforcement officer in the country, at the pleasure of the president, to make sure that the law is upheld. And this specific instance was under the purview of Thomas Perez. They have utterly failed.
Even more alarming, new records now show that Associate Attorney General Thomas Perrelli was heavily involved in this situation, at the same time that he was consulting with White House Deputy Counsel Cassandra Butts, who has a record as a radical extremist similar to that of Communist Van Jones, who was forced to resign in disgrace.
As we show in our book, The Blueprint, this is different than previous administrations. Every president has different law enforcement priorities, and as such make different decisions about how to spend resources to prosecute which crimes. But in this instance, the case was over. DOJ won. The work was complete. And yet Perez, Perrelli, and the Obama-Holder team dropped their victory to the ground, to the shock of career DOJ lawyers.
This failure is utterly intolerable. If Republicans take back the U.S. House this November, they should immediately drag Thomas Perez and Thomas Perrelli up Capitol Hill and put them under oath to justify their decision. If that investigation verifies that things are as they appear, then whoever made the decision to drop this case, whether Perez, Perrelli, or perhaps Eric Holder himself, should be forced to resign.
The right to vote is the beating heart of democracy, and the only way that we the voters hold accountable those with power to govern our lives. This situation cannot be allowed to stand.
Whether it’s Perez, Perrelli, or even Holder, if the official responsible for this pathetic tragedy refuses to resign, Congress should impeach him.
