Eric Holder Plays the Race Card
Despite the lack of interest by the mainstream media, the revelation that New Black Panther maniacs who intimidated voters were not prosecuted because of a Justice Department policy of only enforcing civil rights laws if the plaintiffs are not Caucasians will not go away. Eric Holder, who denounced the USA as a “nation of cowards,” has stuck his foot in his mouth once again by revealing that his loyalty to his race comes long before any loyalty to the law or America:
Attorney General Eric Holder finally got fed up Tuesday with claims that the Justice Department went easy in a voting rights case against members of the New Black Panther Party because they are African American.
Holder’s frustration over the criticism became evident during a House Appropriations subcommittee hearing as Rep. John Culberson (R-Texas) accused the Justice Department of failing to cooperate with a Civil Rights Commission investigation into the handling of the 2008 incident in which Black Panthers in intimidating outfits and wielding a club stood outside a polling place in Philadelphia.
The Attorney General seemed to take personal offense at a comment Culberson read in which former Democratic activist Bartle Bull called the incident the most serious act of voter intimidation he had witnessed in his career.
“Think about that,” Holder said. “When you compare what people endured in the South in the 60s to try to get the right to vote for African Americans, and to compare what people were subjected to there to what happened in Philadelphia — which was inappropriate, certainly that… to describe it in those terms I think does a great disservice to people who put their lives on the line, who risked all, for my people,” said Holder, who is black.
In other words, it’s okay to chase Whitey away from the polls with clubs, because His People endured worse in past generations.
That Obama would appoint an Attorney General with known terrorist sympathies was the height of arrogance. Every day that he fails to fire him is another finger poked in America’s eye.
