Remember when President Obama said that a police department was "acting stupidly" in the arrest of a belligerent Cambridge professor, before he even knew the facts of the case? And remember when Eric Holder called us a "nation of cowards" because we did not want to have open discussions on race?
Would it be fair to say then, that Eric Holder is both stupid and a coward for not pressing charges against the New Black Panthers in Philadelphia on account of their race? Is he too cowardly to pursue this case because of race? Because, as far as I can see, this was indeed a "slam dunk" civil rights violation case. There were witnesses, pictures and even video of voter intimidation and the case was dismissed.
Individuals within the Justice department (Obama Justice Department - there's an oxymoron for you!), such as J. Christian Adams have resigned because they were instructed to drop the case and not bring these individuals to justice.
If Eric Holder wants the nation to have a dialogue on race, let's start one here.What reason did you have in not pursuing justice against these men with a small mountain of evidence pointing to their guilt, other than their race?
Mr. President: If you think the Cambridge police "acted stupidly" when they arrested your friend, before you ever heard the particulars of the case, why don't you acquaint yourself with the stench coming from your "Justice Department", and when you have all the facts, tell us if you think Eric Holder "acted stupidly" in NOT prosecuting these men.
A "nation of cowards" waits with baited breath.
