Who is Debo Adegbile? You mean you don't know? Ever heard of him? Given the sterling quality of our "news" (pardon me while I gag) media, if you haven't I'm not surprised. Or if you have recently heard of him but really don't know anything about him, I'm not surprised there either. He's one of those far-left Obamaphiles the establishment media would rather you didn't know too much about. Less questions that way.
Debo P. Adegbile has been Director of Litigation for the NAACP Legal Defense and Education Fund. That he is part of the NAACP should tell you something right there. These are the folks that think they are "helping" black folks by ridding the countryside of all Confederate flags. They don't really know any responsible way to "help" black folks so they do that instead. But, I digress, so read on.
According to http://www.americanfreedomfighters.com "In 1982, former Black Panther Mumia Abu-Jamal was convicted of murdering Philadelphia Police Officer Daniel Faulkner. Abu-Jamal never denied the killing during his trial. He and his supporters are still unapologetic for Faulkner's death." According to Matthew Vadum: "The question of Abu-Jamal's guilt is not a close call," according to John Fund. "Two hospital workers testified that Abu-Jamal confessed to them: 'I shot the mother...and I hope the mother...dies.' His brother, William, has never testified to his brother's innocence even though he was at the scene of the crime. Abu-Jamal himself chose not to testify in his own defense." According to the article, Abu-Jamal shot the officer once in the back, and then, standing over him, shot him four more times at close range, one time in the face. Now there's real courage, don't you think? I thought only white folks were supposed to hate that much and that blacks were incapable of that kind of hatred--at least that's what some of these egghead college professors tell us. Guess they were wrong.
The freedom fighter article states: "One of those unapologetic supporters is a former NAACP Legal Defense Official Debo P. Adegbile, who has worked tirelessly to free guilty murderer Abu-Jamal from prison. President Obama has nominated Adegbile to head the Department of Justice Civil Rights Division as an assistant attorney general to replace radical Tom Perez, who is now Secretary of Labor. Adegbile is sure to continue carrying out the radical racial agenda of President Obama and Attorney General Eric Holder with the weight of the law behind him." Through his work with the NAACP and in arguing before the Supreme Court, Adegbile has made it known that he doesn't believe that civil rights apply to whites. So, in other words, all the other races are entitled to them and we aren't. Are you really surprised? If you've been doing your homework you shouldn't be. If you haven't, then shame on you!
Obama, dedicated Marxist that he is, is incapable of nominating any other kind of person for any office. The far Left is all he has ever known from his childhood up. His mind runs in this one narrow Marxist groove and he just can't think any other way. I have often wondered how many of those that so zealously support him have any clue. Of course it wouldn't make any difference to many of them anyway. As long as the skin color is right that's all that matters to most of his supporters. There have been several astute black leaders that have learned where he is coming from and tried to warn their people. Mostly they don't care to hear it. And as for those squirrely white liberals that support him, even if they had to hold their noses when they did it, they'd feel guilty of "white racism" if they dared to vote any other way.
However, Adegbile will have to wait just a little longer before he gets to sit in the Department of Justice to rub our white noses in it. To do that he had to be confirmed by the Senate, and, according to what I heard today, March 5, 2014, his nomination didn't quite make it--this time. The Senate rejected his nomination 52-47, but not to worry, our glorious senator from Louisiana, Ms. Landrieu, voted for him. That should make her constituents here in Louisiana deliriously happy--shouldn't it?
Adegbile is so far to the left that even seven Democratic senators felt impelled to vote against his nomination along with the Republicans. Majority Leader Harry Reid voted no, but, under Senate rules, this lets him bring Adegbile's nomination back up again at a later time--probably after the election. So many things happen "after the election." Comrade Reid didn't vote against him out of conviction. He voted against him so he could give him another shot later on. Isn't the "honesty" of our political class a wonderment to behold? I tell you folks, there's real "transparency" here.
Just maybe we need to write our senators and instruct them to vote against the radical leftist the next time a vote for him arises in the august chambers of the Senate--and I don't doubt it will arise. Someone who believe whites have no civil rights is just what Obama wants.
In the meantime, Comrade Obama will have to be patient and pretend he is going along with "the will of the people."
