Allen West: Obama Exploiting Race With Black Panther Decision

As I pointed out in my previous post, the media is MIA on the New Black Panther story. DOJ’s handling of the New Black Panther case is a meme making it’s way through the conservative blogs. Just imagine what it would be were the races reversed. At least Allen West, running against Klein in Fla – 22, is making an issue of it.

“For an Administration that promised a new era in race relations, Obama and the Democrats in Congress have demonstrated that race will continually be exploited for political gain,” West, who is one of two African-American Republicans running for Congress who survived their primaries, said in a statement.

West was picking up on a meme that’s made its way through conservative blogs in recent days, based on whistleblower claims made by a former Justice Department employee. Charges against the Black Panthers for their actions on Election Day 2008 weren’t pursued because of racial politics, the employee charged. The Justice Department says charges were dropped due to lack of evidence.
