An Anti-Semite Goes to Washington

June 11th, 2012 - 1:19 pm

The Weekly Standard is reporting that “former” black panther and New York City Councilman Charles Barron may win the Democratic primary in New York’s 8th Congressional District.  Barron is more than a “former” black panther.

In addition to being a current enemy of Israel and a top shelf anti-Semite, Barron is a buddy and frequent guest of New Black Panther Chairman Malik Zulu Shabazz of voter-intimidation fame.  It’s one thing to be an old black panther.  It is quite another to pal around with Shabazz and the New Black Panthers.  Barron is a contemporary anti-Semite in real time.

Barron is a frequent speaker and guest at Malik Zulu’s Shabazz’s events - usually dolled up to seem like black power rallies instead of the anti-Israel anti-White mob they really are.  Barron is rolled out to give the racial gang an air of credibility.

But aren’t the New Black Panthers just a “cartoonish fringe group of just a couple of guys?”  Unfortunately, no.  And one of their close friends may soon be a Congressman.

 

The Miami Herald today has a textbook example of burying the lede.  Four paragraphs under the headline “County elections chiefs to state: We won’t resume voter purge program” is this gem:

About 40 people statewide have been identified as noncitizens. At least four might have voted and could be guilty of a third-degree felony.

So a very cursory review has already found forty non-citizens on Florida voter rolls?  How many would a thorough review reveal if it weren’t stopped by the Eric Holder Justice Department and the ACLU?

And the same cursory review has shown four of these non-citizens actually voted?!  Which four Democrats want to volunteer to have their votes cancelled by these criminals?  What would completion of the program statewide reveal? Ten non-citizens?  100?  500? What number would convince the voter fraud deniers like the ACLU that something needs to be done?

Instead, cue the voter fraud deniers to announce that non-citizen voting in Florida isn’t an “epidemic” or “widespread.”  They will crow that “only four” examples have been found!  This is how the people who are institutionalizing criminality in our elections operate.  They sue.  They threaten.  They add threats from the DOJ. They print outrageous editorials in the Tampa Times.

The only people standing against these enablers of crime are regular citizens who actually write emails supporting state officials, Governor Scott and election integrity groups.

53,000 Dead Voters Found in Florida

Yesterday, Eric Holder’s Voting Section ordered Florida to stop purging foreigners from the voter rolls.  Two weeks ago, Florida found 53,000 dead voters registered to vote.  Florida has also found non-citizens on the voter rolls and Secretary of State Ken Detzner has started the process of removing them.

Not so fast, says Eric Holder’s DOJ.

In a letter to Detzner, the DOJ says to stop removing foreigners from the rolls.  The Voting Section makes a dubious argument under Section 8 of the National Voter Registration Act, a law the Obama administration has refused to enforce because of ideological opposition.  The letter notes that Elise Shore is the attorney behind the letter.

Eureka!

Elise Shore

Recall that PJ Media produced the Every Single One series that exposed the partisan DOJ hiring practices and the radicalism of the DOJ Civil Rights Division lawyers hired by the Obama administration.

What do we know about Elise Shore from the installment about the Voting Section?

Elise Shore. Ms. Shore came to the Voting Section by way of the “Southern Coalition for Social Justice,” where she worked as a legal consultant focusing on “voting rights, immigrant rights, and other civil rights and social justice issues.” The far left-wing positions of this group are nicely summarized on its website. Ms. Shore also made a $1,000 contribution to Barack Obama’s presidential campaign.

Before joining the Southern Coalition for Social Justice, she worked for more than two years as a Regional Counsel for MALDEF [Mexican American Legal Defense and Education Fund]. There, she was an outspoken critic of Georgia’s voter ID law and well as its proof of citizenship requirements for voter registration (which, incidentally, have been found to be non-discriminatory by a federal court) and described how heartened she was that the Civil Rights Division had objected to the registration law under Section 5 of the Voting Rights Act. But her joy must have been fleeting: the Division later capitulated and withdrew its objection after Georgia filed a federal declaratory judgment action. It will be interesting to see if Shore can put her politics to the side in her role as the Voting Section’s point of contact for all redistricting submissions in the state of Florida.

It looks like Ms. Shore wasn’t able to set aside MALDEF-style radicalism, even after she started working for the taxpayers of the United States.  Sadly, this private radicalism has metastasized into radical open-borders public policy.  Not only does the DOJ stop states from enforcing their laws pertaining to illegal immigration, the DOJ is forcing Florida to keep non-citizens on the voter rolls.  We have entered strange and dangerous times.

Don’t miss:  Florida found 53,000 dead voters registered to vote.
