The Civil Rights Division of the Department of Justice is being radicalized by the White House, says John Fund, a national affairs columnist for National Review Online and senior editor at The American Spectator.

"Our civil rights laws are important. We have them because we don't want discrimination, we don't want racism. We also don't want racialism," Fund told "The Steve Malzberg Show" on Newsmax TV.

Story continues below video.



"We don't want people who have an ideological view of the civil rights laws using them as a weapon or a club."

Fund, also a Newsmax contributor, is particularly disturbed by the nomination of Debo Adegbile, senior counsel to the Senate Judiciary Committee, to be the next head of the DOJ's Civil Rights Division.

"As you know, the previous director of the Office of Civil Rights, Thomas Perez, is now secretary of labor, and Thomas Perez was known for his support of disparate impact laws," Fund explained.

"These are laws that say, you know, we can't prove or even show that there was discrimination or racism, but we do see a particular policy has a disparate impact.

"In other words . . . there has to be evil intent behind it, and of course he also fought against all voter integrity laws, including photo ID laws. Well, his successor, Debo Adegbile, is just made out of the same cloth as he is."

He pointed to Adegbile's work as former head of the NAACP's legal and defense fund.

"If you thought Thomas Perez was a radical, we may even go beyond his normal behavior with this new guy," Fund said.
