Holder sees ‘racial animus’ in opposition
by Justin Sink
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?
