    The book "Injustice" is by J. Christian Adams, former attorney for the Voting Rights Section of the Department of Justice.
    His story is jaw-dropping.
    Unacceptable if it were anti-black, and should be just as unacceptable in being anti-white.

    1. No sooner was President Obama sworn in then he names Deputy Assistant Attorney General Loretta King to be the head of the entire Civil Rights Division. Political appointees who worked with King described (to Adams) how she proudly boasted that her career advanced primarily through race-based preferences. Adams, "Injustice," p.11.

    2. “Attorney General Eric Holder may be the face of the Justice Department, but behind the scenes, a little-known assistant attorney general named Loretta King (no relation to Martin Luther King, Jr.) has been the driving force behind the DOJ’s recent, most questionable racially motivated decisions. Neck-deep in the more divisive civil rights cases of the past several years — most notably the New Black Panther voter intimidation case and the recent Dayton, Ohio police department’s testing standards issue — the Obama-appointed assistant attorney general has many wondering whether her guide is the law or racial politics….According to Adams, race-based decision making has been a consistent staple of King’s actions and resume.

    a. In testimony before the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights about the New Black Panther case, former DOJ Voting Rights Section chief Christopher Coates explained that King ordered him to stop asking trial attorney applicants whether they would have a problem dealing with cases involving white victims.

    b. “In the spring of 2009, Ms. King, who had by then been appointed Acting AAG [assistant attorney general] for Civil Rights by the Obama Administration, called me to her office and specifically instructed me that I was not to ask any other applicants whether they would be willing to, in effect, race-neutrally enforce the VRA [Voting Rights Act],” he testified. “Ms. King took offense that I was asking such a question of job applicants and directed me not to ask it because she does not support equal enforcement of the provisions of the VRA.”
    Loretta King | racial politics | Department Justice | The Daily Caller

    c. This is what King said as she introduced Holder to the Division: “I can’t tell you how exciting it is to go to work every day, and look up at the photos, and see that we now have two black men running the country.” Had a state manager gathered his workers to celebrate white men running the country, this same DOJ would have sued him for employment discrimination.

    3. Racial extremists dominate the most powerful division of federal law enforcement.


    Heck....let's just pretend that this racial favoritism doesn't exist...

    ....but if it were the Bush administration......

    The A.G. should have been indicted for his part in freeing the most notorious corporate pirate in history (at the time) in exchange for a million dollar "donation" to his boss Bubba Bill's library. What did Holder know and when did he know it while the Border Patrol agent was murdered by weapons shipped by Holder's "justice dept" to Mexican drug cartels? Obama thinks his crooked administration is immune from scrutiny as long as his A.G. controls the "justice dept".

    Faulty!

    Nice to see you've returned!

    "... I was scared of you? Hahahaha."
    Well, you should be!

    Do you know who you’re messing with? When ghosts go camping, they tell PoliticalChic stories!
    Heard of 'running with the bulls'? I’m the one chasing ‘em!
    And I have a black belt in Karioke!

    Enough chit chat....let's get to chopping you to bits....

    1. "Do you mean the bush administration that gutted the civil rights division..."

    Your Salon article says "...eight federal prosecutors were fired..."

    Currently, the divison has 400 lawyers, and an additonal 400 support staff.

    Gutted means to "remove or destroy completely..."
    Doing the math, it looks like 2% of the lawyers moved on....
    But, I suppose when the organizations authoring the hit piece include Salon, the McClatchey Newspapers, and the Columbia Journalism Review, well, then 2% means to
    "completely destroy."

    In fact, the article says "...Career staffers began to leave."
    "Leave"...that's not quite the same as fired, or gutted....
    Strike one, Faulty.

    2. "...anti-civil rights conservatives..."
    Who? How anti-civil rights?

    This, from the Salon screed: "..the Bush administration has employed the division to advance the political agenda of a key GOP constituency, the Christian right..."
    But, beyond the usual unrestrained attack on people's personal beliefs, there is no documentation.

    Unless, "...say..." is your documentation, as in "Career lawyers say the new hires are increasingly white males with Federalist Society or Christian Legal Society credentials,..."
    And, didn you notice, no one is quoted?
    But...good enough for your, eh Faulty?
    I'd say strike two.

    3. "...the "whites are being oppressed by minority voter fraud" meme..."
    You found this where?
    Oh...totally made up?

    Strike three.


    Well, Faulty...back to the bench, where you belong.

    The impression I get is that you are looking for a racialist Civil Rights Division that fabricates charges against whites, and are only interested in imagined infractions against blacks.
    True?

    Call me old fashioned, but I would like to see a constitutional use of federal power in a color-blind manner.
    Crazy, huh?

    C. Schlozman’s Statements
    According to Special Litigation Section Chief Cutlar, in
    approximately March 2007, Schlozman admitted to her that he had
    “considered politics” in hiring career attorneys.
    In March 2007,
    Schlozman had returned to Washington to work at the Executive Office
    for United States Attorneys (EOUSA) after serving as interim
    U.S. Attorney for the Western District of Missouri for about 1 year. At
    the time, there were media reports regarding allegations of political
    considerations affecting personnel decisions at the Department. During
    this period, Schlozman unexpectedly visited Cutlar in her office. Cutlar
    said Schlozman discussed with her the allegations of partisan hiring in
    the Division. According to Cutlar, Schlozman said, “You know, I was
    thinking I probably made some mistakes . . . . I probably considered
    politics when I shouldn’t have.”



    When he testified before the Senate Judiciary Committee on
    June 5, 2007, Schlozman admitted that he had boasted about hiring
    Republicans and conservatives in the Civil Rights Division.
    20 We also found that Schlozman made statements boasting to others about using
    political and ideological affiliations in hiring for career Civil Rights
    attorney positions.
    One example is an e-mail dated January 6, 2004,
    from Schlozman to an attorney hired by Schlozman in the Division.
    Shortly after being hired, the attorney sent an e-mail to Schlozman
    expressing his happiness in the Special Litigation Section, noting that his
    “office is even next to a Federalist Society member.” Schlozman replied
    by e-mail, “Just between you and me, we hired another member of ‘the team’ yesterday. And still another ideological comrade will be starting in
    one month. So we are making progress.”



    Table 2: Political and Ideological Affiliations of Civil Rights Division
    Attorneys Hired from 2003 to 2006

    Schlozman Hires - Non-Schlozman Hires
    Republican or conservative: 63 (64%) - 4 (31%)
    Democrat or liberal: 2 (2%) - 3 (23%)
    Unknown: 34 (34%) - 6 (46%)
    Total: 99 (100%) 13 (100%)

    Actually, this is a surprisingly good post from you, BeetsAndSpinach....and
    very close to being on point.
    So...you seem to be documenting that a Republican administration hires Republicans!!
    This is a Claude Rains moment!

    Now, the item that you highlighted, was:

    "put in anti-civil rights conservatives to push the "whites are being oppressed by minority voter fraud" meme"

    So, if you could direct me to the part that suggests that your post documents that there exists some 'meme' re: whites are being oppressed by minority voter fraud, I would be happy to send a rep your way!


    Actually, the essence of the thread is that, unlike the Obama administration, the Bush folks- whomsoever they hired- believed in race-neutral justice.

    "The Bush Civil Rights Division was willing to protect all Americans from racial discrimination; during the Obama years, the Holder years, only some Americans will be protected. Americans have a right to know and judge the racial policies of the administration they elected in 2008…. In time, statistics and other information will present truth to this lie, as the Bush Civil Rights Division had a more robust civil rights agenda than the Obama Civil Rights Division. During the Bush years, the Civil Rights Division brought more cases in many areas of the law, particularly voting rights.

    The Bush Justice Department never filed briefs advocating racial discrimination. In fact, the Bush Justice Department was willing to protect all citizens under the civil rights laws, and brought a handful of cases protecting non-traditional racial minorities….Because he [former chief of the Voting Section, Christopher Coates] believed in race-neutral enforcement of the civil rights laws, his powers as voting section chief were slowly sucked away by the Holder Justice Department."
    Pajamas Media » PJM Exclusive: Unequal Law Enforcement Reigns at Obama’s DOJ (UPDATED: Adams Discusses this Article on Fox News) exclusive/4/

    To remind, J.Christian Adams, who wrote "Injustice: Exposing the Racial Agenda of the Obama Justice Department," was attorney for the Voting Rights Section of the Department of Justice.

    I would be happy to privide examples of racialist pursuits by the Obama-Holder Civil Rights Division of the Department of Justice....
    ...just say the word!


    The same goes for Faulty Salty!
