Obama’s Witch Hunter

Pages: 1 2

As Perez sees things, plaintiffs who win judgments in discrimination or civil-rights cases are by no means the only ones entitled to receive compensation. Rather, he believes that some money should also be channeled into the coffers of “qualified organization[s]” approved by the Obama Justice Department. Under such a scheme, a housing discrimination case could conceivably generate cash flow not only for the actual, real-life victim, but also for a politically partisan criminal enterprise like ACORN which had nothing whatsoever to do with the case. Similarly, a civil-rights case could send money to the NAACP; a civil-liberties decision could enrich the ACLU; and an immigration-related verdict could line the pockets of such racist cesspools as MALDEF or the National Council of La Raza. Bob Driscoll, who was a top Civil Rights Division official in the George W. Bush administration, says:

The practice of … steering settlement funds to favored advocacy groups is at odds with both civil rights laws and common sense. If Congress wants to fund certain advocacy groups or set up grants for agencies to award in order to promote non-discrimination, it can. But allowing the Civil Rights Division to steer a defendant’s money to its ideological allies is offensive.

Ever the champion of the disenfranchised, Perez has loudly emphasized the Civil Rights Division’s “critical work” of “monitoring federal, state, and local elections across the country to ensure that voting takes place free of unlawful intimidation.” But when voter intimidation is directed against whites, Perez is suddenly struck dumb. This point was driven home with crystal clarity two months ago, when J. Christian Adams, a five-year DOJ veteran, resigned to protest the “corrupt nature” of DOJ’s dismissal of a case involving two Philadelphia-based members of the New Black Panther Party who had intimidated white voters with racial slurs and threats of violence on Election Day, 2008.  Adams identified Thomas Perrelli (the Associate Attorney General) and Thomas Perez as the two DOJ officials most responsible for dropping the case. Last month, Adams gave damning public testimony about how Perez and other Obama DOJ officials believe that “civil rights law should not be enforced in a race-neutral manner, and should never be enforced against blacks or other national minorities.”

Also this summer, Perez and the Civil Rights Division have led the fight against the much-maligned Arizona bill deputizing state police to check the immigration status of criminal suspects if there is reason to believe that they might be in the U.S. illegally. Perez’s opposition is based on the planted axiom that white law-enforcement officers would inevitably abuse the law because of … you guessed it again: their own racist impulses.

Last year, Perez demonstrated just how keen is his ability to spot “discrimination” where most mere mortals can detect nothing of the kind. Specifically, Perez and and the Civil Rights Division pressured several universities to discontinue an experimental program whereby they allowed students to purchase their textbooks in digital formats which they could read via the Amazon Kindle. Perez’s objection: The Kindle was not yet fully accessible to blind students. It seems that while the device’s text-to-voice feature permitted the visually impaired to hear the content of their books spoken aloud, its menu options were not available in an audible format and thus required the user to be able to see. Until the Kindle rectified this grave manifestation of insensitivity, said Perez, universities that made their textbooks available on the e-reader would be investigated for possible violations of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).

Rounding out Perez’s view of America as a bastion of discrimination is his contention that women are not compensated equitably for their work in relation to men. But as Warren Farrell has explained quite lucidly in his book Why Men Earn More, the gender “pay gap” ranks high among the most unfounded, pernicious myths of the victim-obsessed culture that leftists like Perez have created.

All in all, Thomas Perez is everything President Obama seeks in a Justice Department official: He has an exceedingly low opinion of American culture, an equally low opinion of the country’s white-majority population, and an unshakable belief that nonwhites can succeed only with the helping hand of benevolent white leftists who constantly encourage class warfare, groupthink, and rancorous division along racial and ethnic lines. Recall, for a moment, Obama’s infamous criteria for selecting Supreme Court Justices: “We need somebody who’s got the heart, the empathy, to recognize what it’s like to be a young teenage mom, the empathy to understand what it’s like to be poor or African-American or gay or disabled or old.” Obama’s America is, above all else, a land of victims. Thomas Perez’s America is, too. It’s a match made in heaven.

    Most people who live in the "shadows" do so for a reason. Just ask all those "shadowy" folks in San Quentin. Charles Manson and his Family lived in the "shadows".

    If we, the real victims of racism, are going to have any chance of survival, we're going to have to overcome our aversion to the term and prepare to battle on under its banner.

  • Kevin Foyer

    Racism is one of the common problems we need to face.Those people who are discriminated will suffer and more problems arise from it.I hope that this kind of problems will be solved as soon as possible.

    Eventually he will slip, get caught for his many crimes against his enemy the white man, and go on trial (post Obama years)

  • Danielle Gleason

    Of all the scary, vicious and evil things that Obama and his bunch have done, this man's position and power is the scariest of all. Please, please, get out and vote Obama and his gang out of office in 2012. We have to save America.

  • verily1

    He is the personification of Obama, says exactly what Obama thinks.

    And they call conservatives "haters'. Gimme a break.

  • Rib/eve

    I agree with you Jean. We need to get over the word "Racism" or lets just flip that around.

    All the people that voted for Obama because he would be the first "black president" aren't they really the RACISTS?

    They voted for him without any regard for who the man is and what he stands for and for that matter the change that he was about to inflict on this country.

  • Frank(ly) M'Dear

    Thomas Perez will probably look better once he's been bathed, embalmed, and quietly laid to rest along with his blind hatreds and overarching bigotries.

  • imnokuffar

    Listen you bunch of RACISTS, don't you know that you are racists by descent – into the pit with you ! If you are white, you are racists and don't bloody argue ! If you have the good fortune to be a black person you are one of god's chosen people you are beyond reproach because the black people are oppressed. So you filthy white cockroaches who dare to question our undoubted right to victimhood can piss off. Your latest attempt to oppress us by not letting us build a mosque just because you happen to object to it is an object lesson of your racism and intolerance. The west is tainted with the original sin of racism, all us people of color are completely and utterly innocent of this vile thing. Even if it could be proved that a black/muslim/asian or any other person was guilty of any crime it would be you bloody whiteys who are to blame. You owe us a living, you owe us tolerance, you owe us everything. And if you don't agree you are all Racists, and if you do agree you are all racists anyway – but nice racists who have taken on the burden of guilt for the rest of your deluded race.

      you need to come to your right mind and repent if you can

      • IndyIsDave

        you need to stop trolling this site and go back to the Bluffington Post where all of the other hypocritical liars are. thanks

        • imnokuffar

          Sorry Dave, its too left wing for me.

          "a person who feigns some desirable or publicly approved attitude, esp. one whose private life, opinions, or statements belie his or her public statements"

          It would appear we are all hypocrites now.

      • imnokuffar

        Repent for what ? Original sin ? I met people who had these opinions for years. All I stated was the hidden subtext behind thier arguments. Most of them made/make a living off exploiting the guilt ridden Liberals and Marxists who are in charge of our societies. Its OK for them, they don't have to pay for thier Liberal sensibilities, the ordinary working people do as most of these (nice) people have managed to secure a nice little government job. Am I jealous, no. At least I don't have to be a smug, arrogant bastard whose "conscience" is paid for by others. I don't lecture others as to what they should believe nor do I get paid for doing it.

    • Mo_

      Satire, right?

      • imnokuffar

        Yes, if you are referring to my original post. I think "irony" would a more fitting description.

        "A technique of indicating, as through character or plot development, an intention or attitude opposite to that which is actually or ostensibly stated. "

        No offence but Americans don't seem to "get" irony. It can be very funny – for me at least.

  • jac maclean

    Far liberals and the retrogressvie Left's propriety command of 'race' is fundamentally pernicous and purposedly diviisive and is wickedly intendended to set a battle ground between those who do not occupt any fundamental polarity one to the other. The fiction of which is semantically abetted by the use of the polarising terms 'black' and 'white'. 'Black ' people are not black, as much as 'white' people are not white. It is of course a shorthand and one that should now be surperceded with another such as brown and white, as one example., and more a superficial physical description rather than structural culltural unbridgeable diffeentness. But of course, they won't want to hang up their arms of war. .

    First, the bad news: He obvioiusly fomenting a new "civil war" by flipping the goals of the last "Civil War" on their head. Where Lincoln gave blacks their freedom, so that they could be treated like any other immigrant culture – Chinese, Spanish, E. European, or Asian, to Obama, that is not enough. The apparent failure of blacks to assimilate, unlike those other cultures, is proof that slavery must still exist in America. That it's still a mindset in white culture, even if not stated. And therefore every negative aspect of black culture becomes part of that superstitious belief. What would Lincoln think of Sharpton! Obama and his hand-picked politicians are there to ingrain that kind of nation-dividing superstition. That's the "bad" news.

    The "very bad news" is that he was elected based on that platform! He wrote autobiographies explaining his beliefs and goals. He described his "dreams." He is not a closet instigator of divisiveness. His Christian church , right before his election, selected Louis Farrakhan as its most honored black person in America. We knew who his "mentor" was. He is changing the rules, but his intentions were always out in the open. And we elected him on that platform.

    Blame the Republicans first! They are caving in too easily. The best defense is a good offense.

    To begin with, "tolerance" is a left wing construct used to muzzle their opposition. It is not a de facto virtue. For example, I'm thoroughly intolerant towards crime, deception, and tyranny. That is to say I'm intolerant of the Obama administration who would love nothing more than the country to tolerate their insane deconstruction of the country. Intolerant? Hell yes.

  • aspacia

    Obama will probably change his tune after November, just as Clinton did. Two more years, and more missteps will make him into another Carter.

    It's a sad state of affairs when our DOJ, the highest law enforcement agency in the nation, breaks ten times as many laws as the average low-life criminal. This all comes from the top…….OBA-MAO IS A POS CRIMINAL AND EVERYBODY HE'S SURROUNDED HIMSELF WITH IS IN LOCK STEP WITH HIS EVIL AGENDA TO SUBJUGATE THE AMERICAN PEOPLE!!!!

    How is telling the truth about a cult ideology that follows a violent text/manual on conquest, piracy, terrorism, incest, rape, paedophila, and calling fro the butchery of Infidels, Kafirs, Jews etc. Islamophobic or xenophobic?

    Is it a sin to expose the truth without being labelled a phobic?
    "If political correctness were asked of me prior to WWII would I be hauled across the carpet for saying Nazis are evil people"? Would I risk being thrown in jail for offending Germans?
    Islam is not Arabic. It is multi-cultural. Islam is a political ideology. About 5% of Islam is cult religion.

    What is described in the article is a natural result of group-think. Individual responsibility has disappeared. Each individual is now classified as a member of a group; such membership determines his/her innocence or guilt. Things are not going so well if you are a heterosexual, white male. Sooner or later popeye will eat his spinach.

    Perez is just one more reason American got to buy more guns, this guy hates our freedom and is working for mexico city in all things against our nation and against.
    "People he is the real Racist and the real Hispanic Xenophobe", his ideals are right out of the mexico city hand-book of the red political party inside mexico city,

    Why is it that almost NO one in our government will stand up against evil pigs like Perez? one reason is most go along to get along and that means down the road death here inside the USA And that is what this pig wants.

  • Wesley69

    Perez is typical of the people surrounding Obama, radicals Marxists, haters of this country. He is an important player to the transformation of America into a one-party dictatorship. His job is to give a new meaning to justice, righting of all the wrongs in the past. Perez is the American Torquemada pursuing injustice against all minorities with the relentless fervour of a true fanatic. And Obama said he would bring us all together. November, 2010 is key to starting the process of reclaiming our Republic. If the Republicans win majorities, INVESTIGATIONS of the Obama administration must follow.

  • canuck

    this article and yes, i'm gonna say it "you people" (if you so happen to be white then so be it) are completely xenophobic and racist. you are what's wrong with america NOT obama and those who fight for social justice. you care only about yourselves. you live in an individualistic society that you help reinforce and recreate in order to benefit those of your "own kind". i am so thankful to be canadian when reading garbage like this! now slam away cause i really do not care :)

      Thanks for being our example of the day as to what Americans are up against. Somewhere along the line the Left has transformed itself into a raving lunatic fringe. The less the Right takes these incoherent rants seriously, the sooner we can effect genuine change for the better. And hopefully without any help from canucks on the left.

  • GalileoOnTheMoon

    Washington is running amok with paranoid nutters these days. The most likely cause for all of this derangement has got to be drug abuse. Starting today, the American people should demand that MANDATORY DRUG TESTING be performed on ALL nutty Washington bureaucrats and public officials, with NO Exceptions. Those found using should be immediately kicked out of Washington

    • imnokuffar

      There would not be anyone left !

      Oh, I see !

        Your right, and that would be a good thing

    Perez is just one more tool of the mexican government and civil rights to Perez means race rights over human and real civil right, didn't Perez Say to a la raze ( the race ) some years back that his Race would Rule over all others within 30 years? Talk about Racists.
    Perez may as well be in the MEXICAN KKK.
