Does anyone remember Johnny Carson as “Carnac the Magnificent?” Well, the image accompanying this post clearly illustrates how Attorney General (AG) Eric Holder, made up via Photoshop, thinks and acts. Isn’t it amazing how fantasy can mimic real life?
Barack Hussein Obama was supposed to lead us into a post-racial America. Instead, his presidency has become a study in corruption and incompetence, with accusations of racism toward anyone who dares state the truth. And his crony, Eric Holder, is furthering Obama’s agenda of incompetence and racism.
Eric Holder has brought the office of AG to a new, immeasurably low level. And that feat was quite difficult, considering that he must be compared to our previously low level AG, Janet Reno. Holder shows a total contempt for the US Constitution, holding it to be an obstacle to his progressive and racist agenda. Holder feels that some minorities, blacks in particular, should be accorded greater rights, privileges and entitlements, especially at the expense of others, notably whites. The racist bias that has suffused the Department of Justice (DOJ), is exemplified in his dropping the New Black Panther Party case. Now we are even hearing some senators call for Holder’s resignation.
On December 17, 2011, Attorney General Eric Holder, who served as a senior legal advisor to the Obama presidential campaign team and was a member of Obama’s vice presidential selection committee, played the race card in an interview published on December 18 in the New York Times. Holder said, “This is a way to get at the president because of the way I can be identified with him. Both due to the nature of our relationship and, you know, the fact that we’re both African-American.” He actually said that! The DOJ provided no evidence to support Holder’s claims. The White House has never returned requests for comment on whether President Obama agrees with his top law enforcement officer’s allegations of racial motivations.
Let’s examine some of the highlights (lowlights?) of Holder’s less than stellar career:
- Wanted to try Kalid Sheik Mohammed in a civilian court (in NYC), which even Democrats said was a bad idea
- Tried to close Guantanamo Bay
- Sued states over immigration laws
- (Mis)handling of Fast and Furious
- Dismissed the Black Panther voter intimidation case
- Decided to stop defending the Defense of Marriage Act
- Sued states to stop voter ID laws
And I’m sure someone will explain how “Wascally Wepublicans” are responsible for Holder’s actions.
Charles Krauthammer explained what he thought was the rationale behind this charge from Holder, “It’s a defensive tactic for his political troubles. It’s clearly a cheap shot of an attorney general who is in political trouble. The reason he is, he is one of the most incompetent attorneys general in U.S. history. He is the guy who has led a department that has been either totally ignorant or disingenuous or worse on the Fast and Furious scandal.”
Krauthammer said this use of the race card was dangerous, particularly when it could stoke racial animosity. “And now he plays the race card,” Krauthammer continued, “I think it’s, to use his word, a cowardly use of the race card and it’s unbecoming. It also is dangerous in a country where it can stoke that kind of racial animosity. He shouldn’t be using it.”
President Barack Hussein Obama, without betraying the slightest concern about Holder’s latest remarks, has often proclaimed his complete confidence in AG Eric Holder.
Are any of Holder’s remarks reflective of Obama and his administration? Well, judge for yourself. None of this [playing the race card] is surprising because Obama had telegraphed his race-oriented mindset in his book, in his church association, and in his projecting statement that small town people “cling to guns or religion or antipathy to people who aren’t like them.” He has worn race on his sleeve numerous times as president. And it’s getting rather unwelcome. Obama and his administration can’t keep pulling the race card every time they’re in a situation where bad leadership was exercised.
But that’s just my opinion.
