Ed Driscoll recommended some political books for his Christmas and Chanukah shopping list. At the top of his list was Mark Steyn’s new book on the end of America. You can’t go wrong with Mark Steyn, but we also have to put our fellow writer, Christian Adams, at the top of the shopping list. His book, Injustice: Exposing the Racial Agenda of the Obama Justice Department, tells the inside story of the insidious racial polemics and rank politicization that drives law enforcement inside the Civil Rights Division.
I used to work in the Civil Rights Division, including during part of the period that Christian writes about. I can assure you that he accurately describes the radical nature of the lawyers who work there and the way they abuse their power and positions of authority. He really shines a light on the hostility to race-neutral enforcement of our federal discrimination laws that pervades the Division, as well as the extreme ideology that drives both the career civil service lawyers and the Obama political appointees.
This is the best whistleblower book written in a very long time. It lifts the lid on the chief law enforcement agency of the federal government, and its revelations are frightening to anyone who believes in the rule of law. Given the influence this Division has on our election process, and the misfeasance it can easily (in fact, already has) committed, anyone who is concerned about the integrity and fairness of next year’s pivotal presidential election should read this book.
