I find it galling that former US Attorney General Eric Holder possessed the effrontery to wag his finger at Donald Trump on Day 2 of the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia. Holder falsely insisted that violent crime has gone down since The World’s Most Dangerous Community Organizer took office.
Holder’s fevered imagination ignores black-on-black crimes, the astronomical rise in the murder rate in Obama’s hometown of Chicago and the recent epidemic of cop killings.
Acting as a dutiful political operative for the Clinton Mafioso Machine Holder said:
“I’ve known Hillary Clinton for almost 25 years—as a friend, a colleague, and a leader of courage and conviction. And today, I am proud to say “I’m with Her!”—because I’ve seen that she has the skills to serve as commander-in-chief—and the strength to lead our already great nation in this hour of challenge and consequence.”
“Did you hear what I just said?”
“Already great nation, Donald did you hear me?”
“Already. Great. Nation.”
It seems just a bit disingenuous for the man who, on February 18, 2009 said, "Though this nation has proudly thought of itself as an ethnic melting pot, in things racial, we have always been and we—I believe continue to be, in too many ways, essentially a nation of cowards."
It is important to note that this racialist, the nation’s first black attorney general, led by the nation’s first black president was speaking during Black History Month and that every year the nation officially honors Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Yet, Holder declares that America is a nation of cowards.
Holder did not and still does not want an honest dialogue about race in the Age of Obama. He and the Democrats want us to sit down and shut up and passively be subjected to lectures about our insensitivity.
Five years after his highly insulting remarks, he told ABC News that he “wouldn’t walk away from that speech.”
Holder supported using Hollywood, the media and government officials in order to “really brainwash people” into opposing firearm ownership, according to a 1995 C-SPAN video.
The revelation that Holder wanted to “brainwash” people into being “anti-gun” appears to be supported by what Congress and the American people have learned about Operation Fast and Furious.
In Fast and Furious, the Obama Administration’s Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (BATFE)—in a program overseen by Holder’s Department of JustUs—sent about 2,000 guns south to Mexican drug cartels. The Obama Administration did this via “straw purchasers” who bought guns in the United States with the intention of illegally trafficking them somewhere else.
Holder, unsurprisingly, is ever-willing to evade responsibility on a number of controversies ever since his time in the Clinton Administration and the Obama Administration.
