King’s Comments about Obama Administration’s Racial “Default Mechanism” On Target

DOJ Whistleblower Reveals Racial Biases Determine Department Policy

Washington D.C.- Congressman Steve King (R-IA) today issued the following statement after reading recent public statements made by DOJ Whistleblower J. Christian Adams which reveal that “widespread hostility” exists throughout the DepartmentĀ  “to bringing cases against national racial minorities.”

“DOJ whistleblower J. Christian Adams has written: ‘The Department has come under widespread criticism for the dismissal of the New Black Panther case, and for the fact that many within the Civil Rights Division are openly hostile to a race-neutral enforcement of civil rights laws. Notice that the Department has never once denied that widespread hostility exists throughout its ranks to bringing cases against national racial minorities. To do so would be futile, because so many people know it is true.’

Mr. Adams’ testimony supports my comments that the Obama Administration allows race to serve as a ‘default mechanism’ in policy making. This explains the ‘widespread hostility . . . to bringing cases against national racial minorities’ personally observed by Adams. Sadly, it also explains the DOJ’s questionable motivation for dismissing the voter intimidation case brought against the New Black Panthers.

Adams’ remarks serve as compelling evidence that my comments about the Obama Administration’s ‘default mechanism’ are on target. I will continue to raise concerns about the Administration’s decision making process until their actions reveal that they have adopted a truly race-neutral approach towards enforcing the law.”
