It’s now official policy. In Obama’s America, victims of crime and abuse now are color-coded.
It began with the head of the Department of Justice (DOJ) Attorney General Eric Holder declaring that the New Black Panthers (NBP) who intimidated voters at a Philadelphia voting station in 2008 won’t be prosecuted because they’re “my people” — i.e., because they are black. Led by their leader King Samir Shabazz, members of the NBP in Philadelphia intimidated voters by standing before a voting place in the city, dressed in their uniform of black beret, black jacket, black pants, and black boots and carrying clubs in their hands. Shabazz also was captured on video saying he hates all white people, “every single one of them,” and calling for the killing of all white babies.
Then Holder implied that whites simply haven’t suffered enough to be considered victims of racism when he defended his refusal to prosecute the NBP, saying:
“Think about that. When you compare what people endured in the South in the 60s to try to get the right to vote for African Americans, to compare what people subjected to that with what happened in Philadelphia, which was inappropriate…to describe it in those terms I think does a great disservice to people who put their lives on the line for my people.”
Now, the DOJ is further making it clear that the Obama administration will not protect white school kids from bullying. As part of Obama’s anti-bullying campaign, the DOJ states on its website that children will be protected from bullying and harassment in schools. However, the DOJ also states that it will enforce this policy in accordance with the Equal Protection Clause, Title IV of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. Since whites and males are not considered victim groups under Title IV, this effectively excludes whites, especially white males, from the DOJ’s protection against school bullies!
Kerry Picket reports for The Washington Times on March 18, 2011:
[T]he Obama administration has made school bullying a federal issue. Last week, President Barack Obama addressed an anti-bullying conference with First Lady Michelle Obama at his side. The administration’s anti-bullying campaign has been ongoing since the beginning of Mr. Obama’s term. The Department of Justice announced in December 2010 its intention to hold liable school districts that fail to protect students that are bullied.
DOJ’s website states:
“The Civil Rights Division and the entire Justice Department are committed to ending bullying and harassment in schools, and the video highlights the Department’s authority to enforce federal laws that protect students from discrimination and harassment at school because of their race, national origin, disability, religion, and sex, including harassment based on nonconformity with gender stereotypes.”
The statement later says:
“The enforcement of the Equal Protection Clause, Title IV of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, and Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 in school districts is a top priority of the Justice Department’s Civil Rights Division. Additional information is available at the Civil Rights Division’s Educational Opportunities Section website at www.justice.gov/crt/edo/.”
Here is the catch. DOJ will only investigate bullying cases if the victim is considered protected under the 1964 Civil Rights legislation. In essence, only discrimination against a victim’s race, sex, national origin, disability, or religion will be considered by DOJ. The overweight straight white male who is verbally and/or physically harassed because of his size can consider himself invisible to the Justice Department.
Apparently, the Justice Department is going by George Orwell’s famous Animal Farm ending: “All animals are equal, but some are more equal than others.”
“We can only take action where we have legal authority,” wrote DOJ spokeswoman Xochitl Hinojosa in a December 2010 e-mail to The Washington Times Water Cooler. She continues: “As stated in the website below, we are statutorily authorized to initiate suits under Title IV of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, the Equal Educational Opportunities Act of 1974, and under Title III of the American with Disabilities Act. More information on the Civil Rights Act, Equal Educational Opportunities Act, and the ADA can be found here: http://www.justice.gov/crt/edo/faq.php#3.”
So the message from Obama’s DOJ to all people-of-color schoolyard bullies is this:
Go for the whiteys!
And if you’re white and you find yourself being discriminated against, abused or bullied, and you look to Obama’s DOJ for protection or you seek justice from Obama America’s courts — Good Luck!
