Katie Pavlich over at Town Hall scores this video find. It shows NAACP Legal Defense Fund lawyer Christina Swarms addressing a venomous rally for cop killer Mumia Abu Jamal in Philadelphia. In the video, she says how proud the NAACP is to represent Mumia Abu Jamal.

Black Panther Mumia Abu Jamal killed police officer Danny Faulkner before becoming a celebrity among leftists.  I appeared on The Kelly File last night along with Danny Faulker’s widow to talk about Debo Adegbile’s advocacy on behalf of the murderer.

President Obama nominated Adegbile to head up the Justice Department Civil Rights Division.  His nomination is currently before the Senate Judiciary Committee.

In the video, the NAACP lawyers make it clear the NAACP is in the game because of race. That is important because yesterday before the United States Senate, Debo Adegbile testified under oath that the NAACP’s decision to represent the convicted cop killer had nothing to do with race. Katie Pavlich’s money quote:

“It is absolutely my honor to represent Mumia Abu-Jamal. It is my pleasure, it is my honor to have that opportunity and there is no question in my mind, there is no question in the mind of anyone at the Legal Defense Fund that the justice system has completely and utterly failed Mumia Abu-Jamal and in our view, that has everything to do with race and that is why the legal defense fund is in this case,” attorney Christina Swarms said during the event. “We are acutely aware that the injustices of the criminal justice system are inextricably bound up in race.”

Yesterday during testimony on Capitol Hill, Adegbile denied the NAACP Legal Defense Fund involvement in the Abu-Jamal case had anything to do with race, but instead argued his organization got involved on a strictly legal basis.

Swarms basks in the pro-Mumia applause from the radical activists. ”This is something I have to take in,” she swoons.

Capture

“We stand on the shoulder of giants, and the giants in this case are in this room.” She thanks the pro-Mumia activists: “I want to extend my thanks from my legal team and the [NAACP] Legal Defense Fund.”

Fifty years ago, the NAACP was about treating every human being with individual dignity and breaking down racial segregation.  Today, the NAACP is proud to represent cop killers.

As a lawyer, it's one thing to represent your client honestly, zealousy, without passion & without prejudice. Fair & competent representation ensures our system works for everyone, innocent & guilty alike. However, it's entirely something else for a lawyer to take on his or her client's cause as his/her own, which is what Adegbile & Swarms have done & are still doing. That is what should disqualify Adegbile from heading up the DOJ Civil Rights Division. Racism, injustices, preferences, corruption & fraud will worsen if Adegbile is approved.

This shouldn't surprise anyone. Don't believe this is just about race either. This guy has had leftists of all colors & races swooning over him for going on three decades now. Go to any major college in America & you'll find student rallies to "Free Mumia" He's adored in Hollyweird. I lost all respect for Paul Newman over his sycophantic support of this guy. The one so-called "conservative" (Michael Smerconish) who used to try to inform the public on this guy & even wrote a book on the case has sold out to the left & keeps his lips glued to "(the mess)iah's" posterior all day long now. He's too busy supporting the same people who support Daniel Faulkner's killer nowadays to care about this case. The left's love for Jamal will never subside & coming from Philadelphia I've witnessed a lot of famous idiots & just plain old everyday idiots crying for this criminal's release while being TOTALLY ignorant of what happened the night Daniel Faulkner was murdered in cold blood. The left has no discerning of what is evil & what is not. Acceptance of evil is the main problem in this case, not race.

Under our system of jurisprudence, even bad guys get legal council, the best they can get or afford. Is Abu Jamal a cop killer? Probably. Does he deserve competent representation? Yes.

Again the pseudo-religion of victimhood and self-pity. We tolerate and even believe it and will pay the price.

Everyday makes me more and more aware of what a sick, twisted, convoluted and plainly evil world we live in. Thanks for today's epiphany, NAACP.

The truly ironic thing is that the primary goal of the NAACP when it as founded was to end lynchings and racial violence.

I'm not one to defend ditzy racists, but she's saying the case was about race, not her decision to defend him. It's a slight enough point since if the cop was black no one would've heard of this case nor would the NAACP care.
