Pajamas Media has Christopher Coates’ opening statement.

PJTV is following the testimony live.

Michelle Malkin is following the hearing.

Coates claimed the NAACP pressured Justice Department officials.
FOX News reported on the hearing today:

The Justice Department is ignoring civil rights cases that involve white victims and wrongly abandoned a voter intimidation case against the New Black Panther Party last year, a top department official testified Friday. He called the department’s conduct a “travesty of justice.”

Christopher Coates, former voting chief for the department’s Civil Rights Division, spoke under oath Friday morning before the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights, in a long-awaited appearance that had been stonewalled by the Justice Department for nearly a year.

Coates discussed in depth the DOJ’s decision to dismiss intimidation charges against New Black Panther members who were videotaped outside a Philadelphia polling place in 2008 dressed in military-style uniforms — one was brandishing a nightstick — and allegedly hurling racial slurs…

…He said civil rights attorneys stick to cases that involve minority victims, and he said the Black Panther case was dismissed following “pressure” by the NAACP and “anger” at the case within the Justice Department itself.

“That anger was the result of their deep-seated opposition to the equal enforcement of the Voting Rights Act against racial minorities and for the protection of white voters who have been discriminated against,” he said.

Now, who are the racists again?

  1. Sadly, this won’t get more attention because of the staged circus act with Stephen Colbert. Shame.

  2. Coates just finished his very damning testimony of the DOJ. Deplorable racism demonstrated by Holder and Co. Hope they fall hard.

  3. Holder said he wanted a national discussion on race–maybe now he will get one.

    He is unfit to serve in any public office.

  4. This is why Colbert was asked to testify today, side circus to keep media off the real stuff its sickening and I think we are in big trouble. Im worried that Nov. is not going to turn out as well as we believe, possibly because of shennanigans. They seem awful confident that they will keep the house. So what do they know that we dont. And it seems they are setting us up for another attack. Call me crazy but I just have a bad feeling in my gut and my window of opportunity to fully prepare myself and family is getting smaller and smaller. Someone help me feel better.

  5. The rights you want for yourself, you have to grant to everyone else.

  6. IMPEACH! He isn’t American anyway, but it’s one way to remove OBAMA, and HIS CRIME SYNDICATE. HEY BARRY, WHERE’S YOUR FRIENDS AT THE WEATHER UNDERGROUND, AND MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD? FIGHTING TO KEEP YOUR KENYAN BIRTH CERTIFICATE FROM BEING EXPOSED. GUESS WHAT, EVERY MEMBER OF CONGRESS HAS IT. IT’S GOT YOUR FOOTPRINT ON IT. THEY DON’T CHANGE, JUST LIKE FINGERPRINTS.

  7. Nelli you wanna be a little clearer.

  8. In a sane world, heads would roll. Not literally, of course. This would be front page news. This would make huge headlines. Political careers would be toppled.

    But this is the world of the lapdog media, making sure they protect their hero.

    It’s sickening.

  9. Ang #4

    Ephesians 6:12-13

    12For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.

    13Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.

    Romans 8:28

    28And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are called according to his purpose.

  10. So according to 0bama’s DOJ, justice depends on color.

  11. Filed under FRONT PAGE NEWS YOU WON’T SEE!

  12. Christopher Coates was a staff attorney for many years for the Voting Rights Project of the American Civil Liberties Union; he received the Thurgood Marshall Decade Award in 1991 from the Georgia NAACP.

  13. Ang, when I was in school, in the late cretacious period, we were taught that we must defend the rights of those we disagree with, if we were going to expect to have rights for anyone. If anyone’s freedom of speech, assembly, etc, was prohibited or stifled, then no one’s freedom was safe.

    Apparently schools no longer teach that if you don’t want Klansmen with nightsticks between you and the polling place, then you can’t allow Black Panthers to do it either. Because a lot of “educated” people in high places seem to think it should be ok for one and not the other.

  14. Several high ranking officials, including Eric Holder, are now going to have to explain how statements they made, in sworn congressional testimony, was not purjury.

    Pelosi will IGNORE this at ALL costs. A new house in January will address these actions.

    Presidential Pardons for those involved would not surprise me.

  15. Dateline 1999 – White couple buys home in mostly black city. Black residents tell white couple to get out. “Crackers” don’t belong. Couple stays 11 years and discovers that there are racists in America, and that the racists are black.

    True Story.

  16. this attitude is typical of the civil rights division of the justice dept. and has been for years. they are there to oppress white people not to defend their rights. don’t expect the democratic party to do anything about it. the democrats built their political empire on racism. their core voters are the non-whites and they get those votes by practicing the selective oppression of white people. they only screw a few whites at a time. its a great strategy. its worked for over forty years. screw a few whites and lose their votes, but you still get the rest of the white people to vote for you anyway. add this to the ninety percent of the non-white votes you get and you can have the most radical views that only a few people support and still stay in office permanently.

  17. The tyranical, and vile racist Obama administration will go down in history as a turning point in world history.

    He is a modern day Atilla the Hun. Destroyer of civilizations… and like Atilla before him, he gives a face that will represent the scum responsible for our eventual collapse.

    Wake up America! Obama/Holder=Cloward/Piven
