Attorney General Eric Holder said Sunday he and President Obama have been targets of “a racial animus” by some of the administration’s political opponents.
“There’s a certain level of vehemence, it seems to me, that’s directed at me [and] directed at the president,” Holder told ABC. “You know, people talking about taking their country back. … 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.”
Holder said the nation is in “a fundamentally better place than we were 50 years ago.”
First: I profoundly disagree on a logical and fundamental basis.
This administration’s paranoia makes Nixon’s look like that of children.
This administration sees racists in every closet, under every bed, behind every closed door. And speaking of closed doors — the Obama administration is roundly referred to as the least transparent in history — as many reporters bemoan.
He also stood by his controversial comments made during Obama’s first year in office, in which he said the U.S. was a “nation of cowards” when it comes to race.
On that comment I too profoundly agree, though in a manner I’m sure is 180-degrees opposed to what Mr Holder means. Yes, this nation is full of cowards when it comes to race, because they fear to confront facts about race and to call blacks out when they are themselves racist. It is the GOWPs who are cowards — the Guilty, Overeducated White People. Agreed, Mr Holder: cowards.
But to casually distill disagreement down to racism? Frankly, I’m tired of this ancient racist pap. And it too is starting to wear on the American public.
I ask: who’s the racist here, Mr Holder?
Check your mirror.
Eric Holder: why have you lost 12 decisions, 9 to 0, via SCOTUS, sir?
“We Ask DNC Members: How Much of Opposition To Obama is Racist?
by Matt Vespa
On February 28, MRCTV’s Dan Joseph decided to stop by the DNC winter meeting to ask committee members just how much of the opposition to President Obama is racist.
Joseph asked, How much of the opposition is race-based? And how much is policy based?
One commiteewoman said about half of the president’s detractors are against him because of his race, while another said it was over 50%.
There you have it. Anyone opposing Mr Obama simply must be a racist.

For years, the Federal Communications Commission has allowed TV stations to execute joint operating agreements allowing themselves to outsource tasks such as advertising sales to group owners with more resources.
But when conservative columnist and entrepreneur Armstrong Williams recently purchased two stations, making him one of America’s few black owners of local TV affiliates, the commission unexpectedly decided to use his acquisition as a test case to review the practice.
The actions — coupled with other recent FCC decisions such as a plan to survey newsrooms that alarmed news media before it was withdrawn — have injected questions about whether a commission set up by Congress to be nonpartisan is now acting with a political litmus test under the Obama administration.
Just as persons pointed out the “doltishness” of George W. Bush, so I get to do the reverse for the foremost Constitutional scholar on the planet, Barack Hussein Obama — and his spelling fecundity.
WASHINGTON (CBSDC/AP) — O-O-P-S. President Barack Obama had a spelling blunder Thursday while praising Aretha Franklin.
Obama misspelled “respect” while lauding the “Queen of Soul” before a White House concert featuring several musical legends.
“When Aretha first told us what R-S-P-E-C-T meant to her,” Obama said, before the audience in the East Room erupted into laughter. He then continued, “”She had no idea it would become a rallying cry for African-Americans, and women, and then everyone who felt marginalized because of what they looked like or who they loved. They wanted some respect. Later, when somebody asked her why it had such an impact, she said, ‘I guess everybody just wants a little respect.’ Today, they still do.”
This is the selfsame zygote who believes there are 58 total states.
Obama Socialist? Spreading the wealth around?
Vote “different” from Hillary. Vote Obama:
“When I meet with world leaders, what’s striking — whether it’s in Europe or here in Asia…” -mistakenly referring to Hawaii as Asia while holding a press conference outside Honolulu, Nov. 16, 2011
You can’t write this material. Was it a line from Dennis Miller? Uh, no.
“We’re the country that built the Intercontinental Railroad.” —Cincinnati, OH, Sept. 22, 2011
(No, you ignoramus; it was a transcontinental railroad. An intercontinental railroad would have the challenge of oceans.)
“We’re not trying to push financial reform because we begrudge success that’s fairly earned. I mean, I do think at a certain point you’ve made enough money. But, you know, part of the American way is, you know, you can just keep on making it if you’re providing a good product or providing good service. We don’t want people to stop, ah, fulfilling the core responsibilities of the financial system to help grow our economy.” —on Wall Street reform, Quincy, Ill., April 29, 2010
After you’ve made enough money, just stop. Say when. But when is “when”? And what is “enough”?
“One such translator was an American of Haitian descent, representative of the extraordinary work that our men and women in uniform do all around the world — Navy Corpse-Man Christian Brossard.” –mispronouncing “Corpsman” (the “ps” is silent) during a speech at the National Prayer Breakfast, Washington, D.C., Feb. 5, 2010 (The Corpsman’s name is also Christopher, not Christian)
Indicting Mr Obama’s massive ignorance of the military and his massive dismissiveness of the military. Perhaps the Haitian was cadaverous in nature?
“The Middle East is obviously an issue that has plagued the region for centuries.” –Tampa, Fla., Jan. 28, 2010
Or at least since 1948.

No comment required here. Facts in evidence.
“The Cambridge police acted stupidly.” —commenting on a white police officer’s arrest of black scholar Henry Louis Gates Jr. at his home in Cambridge, Mass., at a news conference, July 22, 2009
And there you go; an immediately-ignorant and racist comment against a highly-decorated officer which resulted in a staged “beer summit.” Because America has the memory of a Tsetse fly. And by the way, Gates is an avowed Socialist and Communist advocate, believes in black reparations, is a Reverend Jeremiah Wright lover.
I could go on, but it would be tedious.
Great Caesar’s Ghost
On the nauseating spectacle that is the State of the Union address
The annual State of the Union pageant is a hideous, dispiriting, ugly, monotonous, un-American, un-republican, anti-democratic, dreary, backward, monarchical, retch-inducing, depressing, shameful, crypto-imperial display of official self-aggrandizement and piteous toadying, a black Mass during which every unholy order of teacup totalitarian and cringing courtier gathers under the towering dome of a faux-Roman temple to listen to a speech with no content given by a man with no content, to rise and to be seated as is called for by the order of worship — it is a wonder they have not started genuflecting — with one wretched representative of their number squirreled away in some well-upholstered Washington hidey-hole in order to preserve the illusion that those gathered constitute a special class of humanity without whom we could not live.
It’s the most nauseating display in American public life — and I write that as someone who has just returned from a pornographers’ convention.
It’s worse than the Oscars.
Many times worse, I’d posit. Because it’s not about a number of so-called “artistes,” but about ONE MAN.
