EXCLUSIVE: In Scathing Letter to Obama, Former FBI Assistant Director Slams Holder as “Chief Among Antagonists” in Ferguson
by Katie Pavlich
As the Senate prepares to hold confirmation hearings for new Attorney General nominee Loretta Lynch and as outgoing Attorney General Eric Holder continues to allocate Department of Justice resources to the situation in Ferguson, former FBI Assistant Director and Law Enforcement Legal Defense Fund President Ron Hosko has sent a scathing letter to President Obama detailing the damage done to the relationship between law enforcement and DOJ over the past six years.
Let me be immediately blunt: Eric Holder believes that the US is a “nation of cowards” (2009) when it comes to the topic of race. He says “I think we are still a nation that is too afraid to confront racial issues.” In this issue I happen to think Holder is correct but for wildly different reasons. GOWPs (Guilty Overeducated White People) are afraid to speak of racial issues out of fear. Fear of being branded as a racist — which is a label that can affect both work and private aspects of an individual’s life. A Caucasoid’s life, specifically. Holder, on the other hand, means it this way: most all Caucasoids are racists. And any conversations expressed or implied by Eric Holder, his DOJ and Mr Obama are certainly one-way only. They speak; you listen and shut up if you’re Caucasoid.
Former FBI Assistant Director Ron Hosko continues:
“The hyper-politicization of justice issues has made it immeasurably more difficult for police officers to simply do their jobs. The growing divide between the police and the people – perhaps best characterized by protesters in Ferguson, Mo., who angrily chanted, “It’s not black or white. It’s blue!” – only benefits of members of a political class seeking to vilify law enforcement for other societal failures. This puts our communities at greater risk, especially the most vulnerable among us,” Hosko wrote in the letter exclusively obtained by Townhall. “Your attorney general, Eric Holder, is chief among the antagonists. During his tenure as the head of the Department of Justice, Mr. Holder claims to have investigated twice as many police and police departments as any of his predecessors. Of course, this includes his ill-timed decision to launch a full investigation into the Ferguson Police Department at the height of racial tensions in that community, throwing gasoline on a fire that was already burning. Many officers were disgusted by such a transparent political maneuver at a time when presidential and attorney general leadership could have calmed a truly chaotic situation.”
Director Hosko is entirely correct. Both Holder and Obama have and continue to take paths of lesser resistance when the issues involve race and blacks in America. There are clear incidents at which to point.
This, then, is a highly important paragraph in the article:
In August, Holder sent Department of Justice officials from the Civil Rights Division and dozens of FBI agents to Ferguson to investigate the case before the official autopsy was conducted and nearly suggested in a statement that Officer Wilson was guilty of a crime before any evidence was produced.
The local grand jury has not returned a True Bill against Officer Wilson. The autopsy report has not yet been officially released to the public. Yet the American media and Leftists and our DC administration, the US DOJ, acted — is acting — as though the situation is cut and dried: Michael Brown was shot for no reason other than an individual officer’s racial animus.
What a load of crap.
“It won’t be long before the American people turn their attention to other matters. Long after Ferguson is forgotten, police officers across America will still remember the way their senior federal executives turned their back on them with oft-repeated suggestions that race-based policing drives a biased, broken law enforcement agenda,” Hosko continued.
If you recall, this is the same Mr Holder who very pointedly failed to even consider an investigation into Philadelphia Black Panther members standing before voting places with weapons in hand as documented on a viral video. That set the tone for racial issues under Holder’s administration at DOJ. And his racial bias.
Self-described Communist Van Jones (former Green Jobs advisor) typified Mr Obama as being “forced” into a meeting with “racist” Cambridge PD Sgt James Crowley, following the arrest of Henry Louis Gates This is the same Van Jones who blamed “white polluters and white environmentalists” for “steering poison” into urban minority communities.
Let us not forget, regarding the arrest of Henry Gates — who is black — that it was Mr Obama himself who threw around various labels — prior to the facts being all in — regarding the Cambridge Police Department and Sgt Crowley. From Breitbart.com:
After word of the arrest broke, the President weighed in during a press conference saying that while he didn’t have all the facts, “the Cambridge police acted stupidly.” The White House quickly tried to walk back the remark.
This White House, this president and Eric Holder have a history of making racial accusations prior to the facts being established, and their racial bias taints aspects of their politics, besides other base motivations. That much is clear. And, frankly, racist.
Holder appears to believe that cops are racist in nature and deserving of few of the rights afforded most other United States citizens. As in: assuming the Ferguson Police Department in Missouri is racist in nature as is Police Officer Darren Wilson. It is this that sours the relationship between the US DOJ and law enforcement around the nation.
I’ve had people tell me both to my face and in e-mails that I appear to concentrate far too much time and effort on “so-called racism in blacks” which, therefore, makes them very uncomfortable with me. I have been told that these posts receive few or no comments because readers don’t want to be associated with the topic. I have been told that my current “posting trend” (as it was called) with regard to this issue and that of Islam is tending to make people stray from my blog in any event, and that is why the number of hits to BZ has been plummeting markedly. In truth, the opposite is occurring; my hits are expanding.
Why have I been writing so much about these two issues? Easy answer: because I am tired of paragraphs like this from Eric Holder:
“There’s a certain level of vehemence, it seems to me, that’s directed at me [and] directed at the president,” Holder told ABC, citing “people talking about taking their country back” as an example.
I am tired of blacks playing the “race card” when it is politically expedient. It is a wolf’s cry that diminishes true racism. Racism that can be bidirectional as well — that too few will call. But I will. I am beyond tired of being stereotyped as a racist because I am conveniently Caucasoid, male, older and worse yet, a cop. I am tired of being told that only Caucasoids can be racist when, in fact, there are multiple continuing examples of racism by a group of persons whom many believe, by dint of melanin count, cannot be racist. And that is crap is well.
True equality runs both ways. And until it does and the bullshit hypocrisy stops, I shall continue to provide pushback when and how I deem fit.
FBI Assistant Director Hosko makes an excellent point.
I will continue to make mine.
