Because Eric Holder didn’t do his job, the New Black Panthers are now free to intimidate at will without fear of prosecution. This is an epic fail of the Obama administration in the protection of this country's voting rights and now will translate into a failure to protect free speech rights as well.
Where is the mainstream media, you know those idiots who thought the Tea Party was violent? This is the real deal here with these Panther thugs. This could set race relations back, way back.
Can you imagine if the KKK said they were going to show up at an Obama rally? The Black Panthers are nothing more than the black version of the KKK. Racism is racism no matter which color is doing it.
No one wants to see violence. It's time for the media and the Obama administration to stand up and either put these thugs away or keep them at bay. The government cannot be sending a message to the people that we need to handle this ourselves.
UPDATE: Blast from the Past. New Black Panthers were on Obama's website and then it was taken down. h/t @CrabbyCon (the retweet is here)
UPDATE 2: Do you remember right after the 2008 election and moreso right around the time of Obama's innauguration when the Tea Party was just getting off the ground and liberals were lamenting that Sarah Palin wasn't going away? The astroturfing of manufactured outrage that appeared in the comments section of articles was crazy. Well now it's real. Only, it's directed at the Obamas and the New Black Panther Party. Read the comments under this article. Those are real people folks. And they are not happy about the way the Obamas and the New Black Panther Party are damaging race relations.
UPDATE 3: Sarah Palin speaks out on the New Black Panthers Issue, praising Megyn Kelly's coverage of the voting rights case and also tweeting this:
I'm busy today so notify me asap when NAACP renders verdict: are liberty-loving, equality-respecting patriots racist?Bated breath,waiting...Sarah Palin once again sees it like I see it. It's the same world view. It's the same political philosophy. When she runs for president, she will be an exact ideological match for me - and as such she will get my unwavering support. Sarah Palin is kicking ass and I'm just in awe of every minute of it.
