PJ Media has obtained an email sent by Sherrilyn Ifill just before she was scheduled to appear on The Kelly File last week to discuss the nomination of Debo Adegbile, the lawyer who helped defend the cop killer Mumia Abu Jamal. Ifill is the head of the NAACP Legal Defense Fund, the organization once headed by Adegbile.

i In the email, Ifill begs for prayers before she “put[s] the full armor on” to go on Fox News. Notice she asks for “fervent prayers,” and finds a link between her appearance the same day at a commemoration for To Kill a Mockingbird and talking about the Mumia Abu Jamal matter. “I have to believe the 2 are somehow related.”

In To Kill a Mocking Bird, Atticus Finch defends an innocent man, Tom Robinson, from charges of rape. Mumia Abu Jamal was found guilty of killing Philadelphia police officer Danny Faulkner. Numerous appeals courts have affirmed the verdict.

Ifill ended up not appearing on the Kelly File to defend the NAACP’s role in the Mumia matter.

Ifill’s email:

>>> Sherrilyn Ifill 1/10/2014 12:45 PM >>>

It appears that I will be on FOX tonight (Megyn Kelly’s show) talking about the mounting right-wing campaign against the confirmation of a former LDF lawyer Debo Adegbile, who’s been nominated to serve as Asst. Atty General for Civil Rights.

The criticism is based on our representation of Mr. Mumia Abu-Jamal (while Mr. Adegbile was our litigation director). Mr. Abu-Jamal was convicted and sentenced to death of killing a police officer in Philadelphia in 1981. We did not represent Mr. Mumia at trial, but represented him 25 years later in a challenge to the process by which he was sentenced to death.

Attached is the statement we released today that explains LDF’s involvement in this case and our commitment to ensuring that race plays no role in the criminal justice system. The statement really explains our position and I encourage you to read it and circulate it.

I really do need your prayers tonight. I am going up into the camp and I need to put on the full armor! I plan to come out with more than I go in with, but I need you to surround me with your fervent prayers. The show will be at 9pm tonight.

Prior to the show I will be speaking at the NY Historical Society tonight introducing a showing of To Kill a Mockingbird. I have to believe the 2 are somehow related.

There is no one -- NO ONE -- who believes "Mumia" is innocent. His most fervent supporters believe in all their heart he killed Daniel Faulkner.

They just "think" it shouldn't be a crime to kill a white cop.

Ifill is just another of the Soros paid shills for the "I hate America" Open Society Foundation. http://www.undueinfluence.com/open_society_institute.htm

The NAACP has morphed from doing something righteous to being something slimy. Pretty sad.

Not only is there more than sufficient evidence of Mumia's guilt, it is also true that an examination of Mumia's background--his history, his associations, his statements--show that he was strongly motivated to murder white people and police officers.

In a single generation, the Dem Party has transformed itself into a group that is little better than a weird racist anti-racist version of the KKK. The Dem Party has no use for or respect for law. They have no us for the Constitution or reality.

Latinos are transformed into white people and uncertainty to certainty by using nothing more than racial flash cards. The single most disgusting, dangerous and successful ideology to rise in my lifetime is identity-based political correctness.

To be correct and noble doesn't even require an event anymore. You simply need to be not-white, gay, a transvestite, a woman, not Christian or a Muslim. Enroll yourself into any anti-oppression movement and start oppressing - it's easy.

Well, they're both based on fiction, so perhaps she's right.

The Free Mumia crowd remind me of those in favor of "medical" marijuana in that neither can admit their real agenda. These people didn't take up Mumia's cause because they think he is innocent, but rather because they KNOW he did it. They support him because he murdered a cop and, in their sick little psychodrama, that makes him a hero. It would not make it better if they admitted that killing cops turns them on, but at least it would have the benefit of being honest.

The distinction she makes...is that they didn't represent him at trial.

Only on appeal. And only contesting that his death sentence was based upon a racist system.

Here's the deeper dive on that. Representing him at trial is something he is guaranteed and should be given.

Ginning up a phony racism charge in order to get a murderer off from justice is WORSE than defending him at trial...not less offensive.

And, to Double Debo Down on the infestation of racial warfare into the DOJ's cesspool of existing racism...is a huge problem. If there is anyone who can drive the notch lower than Perez...I would have thought it would be hard to find, frankly...a suitable replacement.

But, Obama and Holder are looking to Double Debo Down the racial divide in this country to its lowest possible depths.

Atticus Finch tried to salve racism by confronting it...he didn't invent false accusations of it to make it worse. And, he certainly never said that equal protection didn't belong to white people...a stance at our current DOJ.

So, let's call the Double Debo Down tactic what it is. In your face disgrace.

There are so many examples now of criminal behavior on the left that some conservatives have become a little too inured to it. It makes you wonder if public discourse isn’t being deliberately saturated in this way to give certain people the impression that this is somehow ‘normal.’ This feature already puts conservative malfeasance of even the mildest sort into sharp contrast; with the novelty factor itself being off the scale, which could be the whole point of it.
