Holder Uses “The Race Card” AGAIN
When it’s in political trouble, the left resorts to stoking racial fires. Over the weekend, Attorney General Eric Holder played the race card yet again during an interview with ABC News. Here’s how Holder described opposition to President Obama:
“There’s a certain level of vehemence, it seems to me, that’s directed at me, directed at the president. …There’s a certain racial component to this for some people. I don’t think this is the thing that is a main driver, but for some there’s a racial animus.”
Despite his qualifier, Holder knew what the headlines would be. Here’s one from The Hill: “Holder Sees ‘Racial Animus’ in Opposition.” Once again the left is trying to demonize people as bigots if they dare to disagree with Obama’s policies.
What was Holder’s proof? He said: “You know, people talking about taking their country back. I can’t look into people’s hearts, look into people’s minds. But it seems to me that this president has been treated differently than others.”
People want to take their country back. That’s it.
Back to what? Segregation? Jim Crow? Slavery? Of course not.
What we want to go back to is balanced budgets. Back to the knowledge that unborn children are fully human and should be protected by the law. Back to a time when the government understood that religious liberty was a protected right. Back to the time — just five years ago — when marriage meant the union of a man and a woman.
When Holder says that taking our country back amounts to bigotry, it suggests bigotry on his part. The “vehemence” of opposition isn’t due to the pigmentation of Holder’s skin, but the condition of his divisive heart! And what would Mr. Holder say to these black residents of Chicago, who are furious with Obama’s coddling of illegal immigrants?
By the way, during the same interview, the attorney general was asked about appointing a special prosecutor to investigate the IRS scandal. He said that it wasn’t necessary because “career people” at the Justice Department and FBI were “doing a good, professional job.”
Really? Let me remind you that the “career person” Holder selected at the Justice Department to review this scandal just happened to be a Democrat donor.
Meanwhile, Catherine Engelbrecht, president of True The Vote, whose organization is suing the IRS for the harassment it experienced in 2010, told a local talk radio station this morning that she has yet to be contacted by the FBI or the Justice Department as part of their investigations of this scandal. That speaks volumes about the kind of “professional job” Holder’s political hacks are doing.

My Opinion: Yeah, guess I’m a racist because I cannot stand either of them. I can say “but not because they’re Black” but it wouldn’t make any difference. Plain fact is that they both are shitty at what we expect of the offices they hold. They aren’t Men even though they’re both Male. But don’t get me started!
