Radicalizing Civil Rights

by Hans A. von Spakovsky - March 8th, 2010 - National Review Online

In his State of the Union address, President Obama mentioned the protections enshrined in the Constitution and said, “No matter who you are or what you look like, if you abide by the law, you should be protected by it.” Obama followed this lofty rhetoric with a claim that his Justice Department “has a Civil Rights Division that is once again prosecuting civil-rights violations and employment discrimination.”

As anyone familiar with the Division’s workings can tell you, this assertion is patently false. Obama’s Civil Rights Division will prosecute cases only depending on “what you look like.” If you are white and you are discriminated against in your job, at the polls, or in seeking equal access to federally funded institutions, the Division won’t lift a finger to make sure you’re “protected.”

Barack Obama has not been the great uniter. He has instead become the great hate-monger, dedicated to showing his contempt for anyone who does not fit into his preconceived notion of who is downtrodden.
