Holder Goes Racial

by Keith Koffler on April 9, 2014, 2:49 pm

Attorney General Holder dropped the race card on the table today, throwing down a clear suggestion that the mistreatment he thinks he’s getting from Republicans is based not on the content of his character – which actually, it is – but on the color of his skin.

From remarks today at Al Sharpton’s National Action Network convention in New York City:

I am pleased to note that the last five years have been defined by significant strides and lasting reforms, even in the face of unprecedented, unwarranted, ugly, and divisive adversity.

If you don’t believe that – forget about me –  you look at the way the Attorney General of the United States was treated yesterday by a House Committee. It had nothing to do with me. Forget about that. What Attorney General has ever had to deal with that kind of treatment? What President has ever had to deal with that kind of treatment?

Holder is still pretty sore from Tuesday’s hearing, which contained some significant fireworks. These comments, which were not part of his prepared remarks, were apparently thrown in during the heat of the moment.

I think, given he was doing Al Sharpton’s gig – with Al knowingly nodding behind him – and the “strides and lasting reforms” he’s talking about were to benefit minorities, it’s safe to assume he is charging racism.

Now that’s really unprecedented, unwarranted, ugly, and divisive, isn’t it?

Well, maybe not exactly unprecedented.

Lets not forget , this is the same racist who called America a nation of
cowards. His wonderful association/support of Al “the snitch” sharpton tells me all I need to know about him. My, what a mess this country is in.
It will take an act of God to pull us out….

“What AG/President has ever had to deal with that kind of treatment” One of them stole an election to get it; the other sailed in on his coattails.

I wonder where the Clinton and Bush AG’s stand on his charges? I never remember them being so inept and partisan as Holder has been.

“..unprecedented, unwarranted, ugly, and divisive adversity”….

Holder is describing the Obama racist thugocracy to a ‘T”
The first words out of his mouth in 2009 accused White America of being a ‘nation of cowards’. It doesn’t get more vicious.l

OBAMA 2007: Part of the role of the attorney general is to say to the executive branch, “Here are the limits of your power. Here are the things that you can’t do.” I don’t think Albert Gonzales ever told the president that there was something he could not do. What you get a sense of is an attorney general who saw himself as enabler of the administration as opposed to somebody who was actually, uh, tryin’ to look out for the American people’s interests. Uh, and for that reason, I think it’s time for him to step down and — and for another attorney general who can exercise some independence to be, uh, put for the remainder of this president’s term.

Holder is on the ropes and he knows it.
Pulling out the race card is becoming less powerful because it has been used too many times.
The question still remains as to whether the congress will use their power to remove him from his position, and whether the POTUS will intervene in the process.

The race card is being played for Hispanics – a powerful voting bloc. Blacks are already in the bag.

Geoff Caldwell April 9, 2014 at 3:44 pm

Dems treatment of Alberto Gonzales was far worse.
But I’m not surprised though that Holder played the race card. When the content of your character is beyond empty, there’s nothing left but Alinsky ridicule and distraction.

Considering how corrupt both he and Obama are and how both keep the flames of racism going and all of their statements and acts that feed into the divisions among us, the attacks against them are tame.

What a whiny little sh** Stupid crap like this is exactly why this nation is the most divided since the Civil War. Holder is a joke and a racist himself. Jail is where he should be for Fast & Furious instead of pissing and moaning at Sharpton’s money-grubbing convention.

Eric Holder does not enforce the laws of the United States, he has been held in contempt of Congress and impeachment proceedings should be brought. Racism is the first and last defense of America’s leftists. Eric Holder is a racist and an embarrassment to his office and to this country.

Hi. I’m an Af-Am so anything you say about me that isn’t a compliment is proof that you are a racist.
Hi. I’m an Af-Am and I’m allowed to do everything I can and anything I want, but if you object then it is proof that you are a racist.

That’s about the size of it, huh?

He views everything through the lenses of a black man who has spent his entire life being discriminated against whether he has been or not.

The old race card has been thrown down so many times, it is getting to the point where nobody listens when it is used, even in situations where racism does exist. Sad, because the overuse is going to end up hurting the folks it should be helping.

The black “Leaders” and associated race-pimps like Sharpton have done a lot of damage to their supposed constituency.

Waahhhh. Even if it were so, which it is not, who gives a rat’s butt anymore?
I can’t speak for anyone but myself, but I am almost to the point that I am a racist b/c of this nonsense.
Say something long enough and eventually it turns out to be true doesn’t it?

Given Obama’s communism, Holder’s corrupt defense of same, Jesse Sharpton’s shakedown racket, the blight of ghettos, the open air drug markets therein, the knockout game, the filth produced by black “musicians” under the banner of “rap” (the initial invisible “c” is silent), the spoiled-brat and/or ghetto thug antics of too many black athletes, the disintegration of the black family, and the transformation of so many swaths of urban America into “no-go” zones–and even that indictment is far from complete–I doubt you’re alone in your thinking.

Contempt gets contempt………I believe the first person who was found contemptible was AG Holder for lying to Congress. Furthermore, he did not provide documents that were subpoenad. Goemart nudged him with the cheap shot, but guess what, he deserved it. How did the AG reply? Called a US Congressman, Buddy………. Barbara Boxer went off a cliff for an Admiral addressing her as Ma’am which he and every Sailor is trained. I did not hear anyone criticize the AG for calling a Congressman.

If AG Holder wants to be treated with respect try doing something respectful like the job.

I wanted to put this in response to Denise, but it wouldn’t work:

I wonder how the fairly new head of the FBI, James Comey, fits in with Holder. He used to be a Republican, but will he go along with Holder to persecute and prosecute conservatives and whites and to look the other way from liberal corruption and black violence?

That seems to have been the trend so far.

And forgive me this, because I don’t want to believe it, but a sad evidential case of “following” — John Roberts, General Petraeus. Not along racial lines, but same same in my opinion.
