What does “justice” mean to the Obama administration? The Justice Department under Attorney General Eric Holder has now followed through on its threat to sue the state of Arizona over its illegal immigration law.
Keep in mind that the Arizona law merely puts some teeth into what is supposed to be federal law. The only reason the Arizona legislature saw fit to pass it is because the federal government isn’t doing its job enforcing the law.
Incidentally, it was revealed yesterday that Rhode Island has been inquiring about immigration status in the same way Arizona has legislated for quite some time now, and no one’s civil rights have been violated. Neither has anyone complained. This lawsuit is frivolous.
If President Obama and Mr. Holder really cared about illegal immigration, they not only would stop the flood of people coming into the country illegally, but they would prosecute cities that have declared themselves “sanctuary cities,” which means they will not obey the federal law to report on illegal immigrants.
To show the amazing disparity in law enforcement under the current attorney general, all that is necessary is to listen to the testimony of a career justice department lawyer who resigned last week because he could no longer in good conscience serve under this administration.
J. Christian Adams testified that he was told to drop the prosecution of individuals from the New Black Panther Party who stood outside a polling place during the 2008 elections, intimidating the white voters who were arriving. One had a club in his hand and made threatening comments.
Just yesterday, a video surfaced of the man with the club. Here’s what he says in this video:
I hate white people. All of them. Every last iota of a cracker I hate him. … You want freedom, you going to have to kill some crackers. You going to have to kill some of their babies.
Nice, huh? Why is this man not being prosecuted for his actions and his inflammatory language? This is not the kind of speech that is protected by the First Amendment. Anyone who goes around encouraging others to kill people—including babies—is a threat to the community.
What does this say about the ideology of the Obama people?
Eric Holder has put the full weight of the Justice Department behind this racist, protecting him from prosecution. This is not what the phrase “justice is blind” is supposed to mean. It’s a perversion of the concept.
