The corruption of the Department of Justice under Barack Obama and Eric Holder is one of the saddest of many sad stories that have emerged from the Obama administration. Under Obama, the Department has been politicized to a degree this country has never experienced; certainly not in its modern history.Yesterday the Civil Rights Commission released its final report on its investigation of the New Black Panthers case. That case presented the question--seemingly not a difficult one--whether it is permissible for political partisans, at least one of them an official of the Democratic Party, to wield weapons and make threats outside a polling place on election day for the purpose of deterring members of an opposing political party from voting.Yet it seems that Barack Obama and Eric Holder approve of such threats of violence and want them to continue in the future, as long as the clubs are wielded on behalf of the Democratic Party.[...]The Obama Justice Department, in other words, is both racist and lawless.Powerline Blogger John Hinderaker wailing about super scary black panthers and racism against white folks pervading the Government.

I was watching the Foxnews on election day 2008 when this story broke. I remember thinking "is this the best they got - an old timey group from the 60s? Surely they coulda done better than an imaginary black panther menace."
Oh well, go with what you know, I guess. Panthers are known to work some older folks up still. Speaking of which, here is your daily dose of Stupid:
It has to be tough being a winger. These days it means being a victim - about just about everything.
Neither the Bush Administration nor the Obama Administration saw it necessary to make a National Incident over a half witted fool standing outside a democratic precinct with a stick during the 2008 election. Did this character keep democrats away from the polls that day? Did he threaten or intimidate anyone trying to cast a ballot? No. He was cartoon character for the local police to deal with as they saw fit.
But some folks can't accept that.
I know that larger numbers of wingers has complained in the past about activism at the Civil Rights Commission for pushing issues at the margins.......in support of advancing civil rights and equality under the law. Now that the same sort of wingers are complaining that there ain't enough activism at DOJ pushing issues at the margin against black folks. Looks like these folks want to use the power of the federal government to prove a point, rather than to pursue justice.
This is really stupid. Of all the things to whine about - the government ain't activist enough of all things. I thought so-called conservatives were against this type of government action - blowing something out of proportion just to prove a point.
I suspect that wingers like this fella' Hinderaker, have a decision to make. Are they gonna take a couple a deep breaths, stand on their own two feet and decide its time to start acting like an adult. Or are they gonna keep playing the part of a perpetual victim and cry racism when they don't get their way? Its called personal responsibility, folks. It's time to step up and put away childish things.
Oh well, what can you do about these wingers? You can't live with 'em - can't round 'em up and ship 'em off to immaginary FEMA Camps using the President's secret gestapo-like marxist and/or fascist police force, either. There used to be a time when men were men and acted like it. But those were the olden days and I guess them days are gone.
