Eric Holder’s Racial Double Standards
This is what you get when you elect racists to office.
Check it out:
Shortly after Eric Holder was sworn in as our first African-American attorney general, he declared the United States “a nation of cowards” on race.
In an interview this week with ABC, Holder stood by those remarks, and upped the ante. “There’s a certain level of vehemence . . . that’s directed at me and the president,” he said, because both are black.
While recognizing the historic breakthrough represented by Barack Obama’s presidency, Holder added, “I don’t think this is the thing that is a main driver, but for some there’s a racial animus.”
Really? When Americans complain about ObamaCare, worry about the high numbers of Americans who have given up looking for a job or express themselves about a foreign policy going up in flames all over the world, is racial animus behind any of that?
Likewise, when Holder himself was held in contempt for refusing to comply with congressional subpoenas on the Fast & Furious gun-running program, or was attacked for wiretapping journalists, was this motivated by race? Or were people judging Holder by the content of his character?
