    'We are instituting, as a practice, the politically correct application of the law in America'

    January 11.2014
    By Scott Greer

    President Obama has made yet another controversial appointment, nominating Debo Adegbile to be the top Civil Rights Division executive at the U.S. Department of Justice.

    The outrage is over the fact that Adegbile headed the NAACP’s Legal Defense and Education Fund, where he pushed for the release of notorious cop killer Mumia Abu-Jamal.

    Journalist and author Jack Cashill, whose latest book “If I Had a Son: Race, Guns, and the Railroading of George Zimmerman” covered the racially charged George Zimmerman case, believes the nomination is another dark sign of the troubling direction the Department of Justice has taken under Obama and Attorney General Eric Holder.

    “This signals the continued racialization and politicization of American justice,” Cashill told WND.

    Cashill believes that the Abu-Jamal case, with which Adegbile was heavily involved, was a clear-cut example of justice being handled correctly, but the left distorted it for political gain in a similar way that they treated the Zimmerman case.

    “The fact that they would make a cause out of a case that is so ‘open and shut’ is appalling,” Cashill stated. “It represents a reinforcement of the strategy the hard left has had for nearly a century. They’ve elevated the conspicuously guilty to the status of innocent and now they’re twisting it by adding the innocent to the status of guilty. That is why the Zimmerman case is so unprecedented.”

    He is particularly worried that Adegbile, based on his history of actions and ideological bent, will be the one to go after Zimmerman with federal civil rights charges.

    The Justice Department has refused to say it won’t file federal charges against Zimmerman, even though he was acquitted by a jury.

    “In this appointment, Obama reaffirms his commitment to a strategy that started when the Comintern engaged themselves in the Sacco and Vanzetti Trial, and that is to racialize and polarize by using the criminal justice system in one way or another,” Cashill said.

    Besides the Zimmerman case, Cashill cited two recent high profile cases the DOJ is pursuing that support the notion officials are taking a polarized and racial bias in what cases they decide to prosecute.

    “Eric Holder is now demanding that schools stop racial profiling students when it comes to punishment,” Cashill noted. The absurdity is that administrators are already bending over backwards to not appear racist in their punishments. When it came to the Knockout Game, the federal government decided to prosecute only the white guy who knocked out the black guy as a hate crime and ignored a thousand cases that were contrary to that.”

    Cashill said the government is “instituting, as a practice, the politically correct application of the law in America.”

    “The George Zimmerman case is not a one-off case – it’s a sign of things to come,” he said.

    In “If I Had A Son,” Cashill tells the inside story of how, as the result of a tragic encounter with troubled 17-year-old Trayvon Martin, the media turned Zimmerman into a white racist vigilante, “the most hated man in America.”

    “If I Had A Son” tells how for the first time in the history of American jurisprudence, a state government, the U.S. Department of Justice, the White House, the major media, the entertainment industry and the vestiges of the civil rights movement conspired to put an innocent man in prison for the rest of his life.

    NBC News producer fired over editing of George Zimmerman 911 call

    The edited audio clip from a 911 call implied that Zimmerman shot Martin because he was black

    FOX George Zimmerman, accused of killing Trayvon Martin
    An NBC News producer has been fired after a misleading report on the Trayvon Martin case suggested that shooter George Zimmerman was racially motivated.
    The edited audio clip from a 911 call implied that Zimmerman, a neighborhood watch volunteer in Sanford, Fla., shot Martin because he was black.
    "This guy looks like he's up to no good. He looks black," according to the clip that aired March 27 on the “Today” show.
    A transcript of the actual recording of the call between Zimmerman and the 911 dispatcher shows the version that was aired was significantly modified.
    George Zimmerman: "This guy looks like he's up to no good. Or he's on drugs or something. It's raining and he's just walking around, looking about."
    911 dispatcher: "O.K., and this guy - is he white, black or Hispanic?"
    George Zimmerman: "He looks black."
    After critics blasted the segment as misleading, NBC News launched an internal investigation into how the recording was edited, and concluded on April 3 that there had been a mistake.
    "During our investigation it became evident that there was an error made in the production process that we deeply regret," NBC News said in a statement. "We will be taking the necessary steps to prevent this from happening in the future and apologize to our viewers."
    The unnamed producer, who has been described as experienced, was fired on Thursday. His dismissal was first reported Friday evening by The New York Times, which cited two people familiar with the matter.
    NBC News declined to comment about the firing.
