Letter: Beem should expand his viewing habits

Edgar Allen Beem needs to be better informed. He should do as I do. I watch CNN, MSNBC and Fox News. I also tune into Rachel Maddow, "Democracy Now!," Glenn Beck and Bill O’Reilly. That is how you really hear all sides. Regarding the New Black Panthers, Samir Shabazz, who was allegedly intimidating voters, was also recorded giving sidewalk hate speeches about killing “crackers and cracker babies.” That was the other evidence the attorney general should have used to prosecute this man. J. Christian Adams testified under oath that he was directed “not to prosecute” claims against blacks accused of racism. He testified that the DOJ had a solid case against Shabazz. It was the reason he quit. In his letter of resignation, Adams states, “I was told by Voting Section management that cases are not going to be brought against black defendants for the benefit of white victims. That if somebody wanted to bring these cases, it was up to the U.S. attorney, but the Civil Rights Division wasn’t going to be bringing it.”

Lastly, I’m surprised that Beem would refer to Fox News as “fair-skinned,” considering that Michelle Malkin and Juan Williams work for that network.
