|The face of today's racist
Sen. Casey, a high-profile Democrat, effectively gave his Democratic colleagues cover to vote "no" after he recently came out against the nomination. Casey represents the state where Abu-Jamal killed a Philadelphia police officer.
At issue is Adegbile's work with the NAACP Legal Defense Fund on behalf of Abu-Jamal. Perhaps America's most well-known cop killer, he was convicted for the 1981 murder of Philadelphia officer Daniel Faulkner. The case has attracted celebrity and media attention for decades, amid claims that Abu-Jamal faced racial discrimination. Abu-Jamal's death sentence was eventually overturned, but his conviction stands.
Along the way, Adegbile and the Legal Defense Fund got involved in the case, filing briefs and appeals on his behalf. Adegbile's involvement came after Abu-Jamal's death sentence was overturned and after the Legal Defense Fund first began working with the defendant.Harry Reid suggests that it's racism because everything bad that happens to a black person is because of racism.
“Maybe it’s time that America had a good discussion on civil rights,” Reid said after the vote.See the only reason this guy was voted down was the white people don't like black people, according to Harry Reid.
You want to know what racism is? Harry Reid is the face of it. Abu-Jamal is defended by celebrities and liberal politicians because he's black. A lawyer, who went well above the simple act of defending this murderer in court because the defendant was black, was not confirmed for a high level position at the DOJ. This is basically the same thing as separate drinking fountains according to Harry Reid.
Harry Reid believes that bad behavior and bad choices can be excused if you are the correct skin color. If you are black, you then excused from being a cop killer or vehemently defending a cop-killer. Not on the basis that you believe he didn't do it but because you believe it's OK that he did it. Because he's black and the cop is part of a racist (in your opinion) system and it's somehow justified. Oh and the cop was white so he was asking for it. Or something. According to Harry Reid.
I'm sure I'm using a slight amount of hyperbole but the fact is Adegbile didn't just be this guy's lawyer in court, he really went to bat for this killer well after the trial. Harry Reid thinks this is all excusable and the only reason Adegbile didn't get confirmed is because Republican's are the racists.
That's all it is! Don't look at all this stuff in the past. And don't blame blacks because they just can't help themselves to make bad choices. No it's the Republicans that are the racists! Now vote for me in 2016! So I can stop racists who don't understand that blacks are incapable of making good decisions!
Time to call out Reid and the rest of the left for what they really are.
