Today, a jury acquitted his union thug attackers (Gateway Pundit).
I just spoke with Kenneth Gladney and his wife outside the courtroom. Here is their first reaction—
“I couldn’t beat them; I didn’t have the resources they had. They had all the money in the world and the backing… I’m just an average man.”
Now imagine if Kenneth Gladney had been a liberal, who was beaten by Tea Party members who yelled racial slurs at him; and saw his attackers go free.
- First of all, the media would have covered this story endlessly (the only place you heard about this was on the blogs).
- The NAACP would have defended Gladney and issued more resolutions against the Tea Party (Gladney was called an "uncle Tom" by one NAACP member and the group harrassed him and his allies yesterday)
- Eric Holder would have opened up a federal civil rights case to bring his attackers to justice, as happened after the Rodney King trial.
But since Gladney was associated with Tea Party conservatives, his civil rights won't be defended by Eric Holder and his InJustice Department. He's too busy defending racist thugs intimidating whites at a polling place and selling guns to Mexican drug cartels.
