Gunrunner: Eric Holder plays the race card
Eric Holder has sunk to a new low, if that is possible. The Attorney General is unable to defend what is at best his criminal negligence and at worst his criminal duplicity in the Fast and Furious scandal and so he has played the race card, claiming that he is under attack because he is black.
This is a way to get at the president because of the way I can be identified with him,” Holder said, according to the Times. “Both due to the nature of our relationship and, you know, the fact that we’re both African-American
This is the last refuse of a desperate man; under his watch the Department of “Justice” has been stonewalling the Fast and Furious investigation, has been tampering with evidence and obstructing justice, he has perjured himself in front of the Congress so there is nothing left for Eric Holder to do but attempt to deflect the blame by claiming he is the victim of racism.
According to Eric Holder the death of two Americans and several hundred Mexicans–in addition to the list I compiled above–is just an excuse to bring a black man in power down, and his critics in the Congress are more concerned with putting a black man in his place rather than getting to the bottom of what just might be the largest scandal in the history of the United States. This is a despicable attack on the people who want to get to the truth about what happened that night in Peck Canyon and Eric Holder owes them an apology.
When speaking about race relations in the United States Eric Holder once quipped that America was a “nation of cowards,” yet it was Eric Holder who dropped the voter intimidation case involving the Black Panthers because he was too much of a coward to prosecute those whom he called “his people,” because he really wasn’t concerned if white voters were disenfranchised–he saw this as justifiable payback.
And now that Eric Holder is under fire for his role in Fast and Furious, instead of standing up and taking responsibility for the actions which happened under his watch in his Department of “Justice” Eric Holder has taken the cowardly position that he is only under attack because of the color of his skin in desperate hope that this will intimidate his critics into backing down.
I ask you, who is the coward now?
