EXIT: Holder blames race for criticisms…

February 27, 2015

Attorney General Eric Holder plans to push, during his final weeks in office, a new standard of proof for civil-rights offenses, saying in an exit interview with POLITICO that such a change would make the federal government “a better backstop” against discrimination in cases like Ferguson and Trayvon Martin.

In a lengthy discussion ranging from his own exposure to the civil rights movement of the ’60s to today’s controversies surrounding the shootings of Trayvon Martin and Michael Brown, Holder also acknowledged that he felt some of his own struggles with Republicans in Congress during his six years in office were driven partly by race.

“There have been times when I thought that’s at least a piece of it,” Holder said, adding that “I think that the primary motivator has probably been political in nature … [but] you can’t let it deflect you from … your eyes on the prize.”

    The “prize” is Obama’s fundamental transformation of America into an UNexceptional, European-style socialist state. But, he doesn’t want to go there; so, of course Holder will pull another “race card” out of his 6-deck shoe. He has nothing else to offer but that he and Barack are criticized for their actions solely on the basis of their skin color. Bravo Sierra!!!

    The Obama administration is the most racist bunch of scum ever to hold office, with a lot of help from the the Buffets and the wealthy Jewish community.

    The Dishonourable and devious Eric Holder, has a long track record of deception and deceit. He and his boss have both done everything they could do to heighten and exploit perceived divisions between virtually every segment of our society. Black vs White. The whites ARE ALWAYS THE PROBLEM. And if one mentions other issues you are branded a RACIST. Rich vs Poor. The Rich guys got that way by stealing from YOU and that is why you are poor. Which allows individuals off the hook for their poor choices and decisions. What is Good has been turned into something BAD, and what is BAD, is now Good. The doublespeak from the Progressive Left is scary, to see how it can all end read 1984 by George Orwell, and read his book Animal Farm. Both are enlightening and will open your eyes to the deceptions of the Progressive Movement (Liberals). Holder’s lies about virtually every scandal in this Administration will fill volumes, when it is all said and done. This POS CAN NOT TELL THE TRUTH and He Supports our Enemies and has represented GITMO prisoners like they were common thieves and not the TERRORISTS they are. I hope there is a special place in HELL for this piece of crap.

    Being black does not give you a “ticket to ride”, Being black does not allow you to skirt the law. Your job as AG is to protect, & serve, NO, not to serve B.O. but your country,(If indeed this IS your country). You have,so far, not left office manacled to your insane leader, try counting your blessings.

    Funny thing, the racist pile of $hit could find NOTHING on either Zimmerman or the cop in Ferguson, no charges at all. If either of them had ever once been proven to have said something derogatory about blacks they would have been crucified, even though both were INNOCENT. Now contrast that with the THOUSANDS of black on white hate crimes where there were numerous witnesses that heard the blacks making racial slurs as they robbed, savagely beat, raped & murdered their victims. Holder has made a point of refusing to prosecute black on white hate crimes as a hate crimes. Local law enforcement all over the country refuse to charge blacks with hate crimes, even when there are dozens of witnesses. Blacks are the most sickeningly racist a$$holes on the planet & Holder, Obama, the black COCKus, the elite white media & academia ALL HAVE the BLOOD of INNOCENT LIGHT SKINNED VICTIMS on THEIR HANDS.

    Holder, just another extension of our Race Problems…Never discussing a solution, but continuing to perpetuate the division of our races! INCOMPENTANCE is his problem…Not His Race!!

  • terry says:

    This man is a joke! He has to be the worst in history and doesn’t enforce existing laws! Where was he when the Black Panthers were threatening voters to vote for Obama? Silent! That was an act of Racism! If you say something bad about Obama, you are a racist by Democrat standards. Remember they even call Dr. Ben Carson a racist even though he was black! He is just more intelligent and sees the truth which they don’t want the sheep to see!

  • Sean Rickmin says:

    Well Mr.holder,just for your information,people of color are a hell of a lot more racist than most whites.You and your white house buddies have made the situation a lot worse.I can’t ever remember this country being so split and angry.Is this the way it was planned.

  • LCFisher says:

    I think Mr. Holder and the likes of him, probably don’t even believe there is much racism in America. (there will always be some from both blacks and whites) They are all saying these things to confuse the public and to stir up haters where there was none in the first place. I am white. I am not racist nor have I ever been racist. Almost all the white people I know (today) are not racist. Even the old guys like me. Those that were, have mostly changed their attitudes. Do I know blacks I don’t like? Sure! I know whites I don’t like, too. I don’t like anyone who displays racist ideas. When I see it, I usually tell them to grow up and if they don’t, I don’t go around them any longer. I like the people who are nice to others. So do most of you.

  • Lily Haley says:

    The race whiners refuse to acknowledge that it is their policies and actions that are the problem. They claim race for every difference of opinion.

  • Phil says:

    With the gun running he was involved with, for the lifeof me, why isn’t he in prison? You or I would be. Grow a spine Congress, and put this man away. What are you afraid ? This man put our country in grave danger.

    Note to Attorney General Erick Holder:
    Sir the very hate you opine an accuse others of.
    Is actually a reflection you see each morning in your bathroom mirror. That reflection is of the deeply held own bigoted racist views. Which reflect’s upon the very hate filled heart you my friend posses. Those views the bitterness, contempt, hatred for other’s of differing, cultural, political views, racial back grounds , Faith based beliefs; Other then that which you and your Friend an criminal in-kind, Mr. fraud deranged lunatic O blow hard Obama,Islamist hold. The two of you find as invalid. You sir through both your actions and inaction to up hold the law of the land. As well your choice not to defend the people.

    While merely being another rat in the nest of Obama rats. We : I to do not despise you because of the color of your skin. No sir I despise you because you failed to up hold the Oath of office to protect and defend the Constitution of the Once Untied states. You Sir failed to defend the People all the people, all the citizens of the once United States. You chose to side with all the Unconstitutional law breaking the Administration chose at will to defy. In that defiance ultimately break, His oath of office ,in breaking those Laws of OUR Land . You Sir chose to Defend the Administration instead of Defending the People. Which in fact was the Job you had been; nominated and confirmed to do. No Sir; You are a left over bitter racist hate monger. Still thinking, an living in the distant past sixties era,having never viewed the world from its new perspective and its actual reality.
    Talk about holding on to Guns, Patriotism faith. The Non Commander liar an chief the two of you hold onto what is long dead gone. Very much in the past. Yes : of course there are others of many racist that share you foolish hate filled bigoted hearts of yesterday. I suggest you take a really good look at the two following generation born after us. They are the nations hope you and others like you, should crawl back into the caves from whence, you came. Might I also suggest before your last Day’s bring about felony charges on your self, you’re conspirators as well your commander liar an chief Mr. Obama. Sir I shall state so that there is no doubt about my Independence, as per my political views. Yes I am a fiscal Conservative,Libertarian ,leaning Independent voter, Yes A Faithful Christ Follower . Frankly I hold great disdain for both party Establishment. But none more so then the lost Democrat party. Take heed history shall not be so kind to you. Sincerly your’s Peatro Giorgio

    Holder, Obama, and their whole Cadre of Sycophants are the true Racists in America, and it is becoming very obvious for all that can see, it is starting to become an old song that will have serious and bloody consequences if not stopped soon. They hate everyone that disagrees with their demands and cover up the crimes committed by them and their own with righteous indignation, and Victim hood. They do as Alinsky instructed: Blame the other guy for what you do.

  • The redhawk says:

    Holder and Obama are both PSYCHOPATH Lying TROLLS.. They SCREW UP and always Blame something else for their LIES… INCOMPETENCE… Amateurism and Corruption… and when all else fails they call out the R card! However they do nothing to Help nor Protect the Black American which their SICK policies are undermining, Example the Black young man killed in California by ILLEGAL Thugs ‘ OUT TO KILL BLACKS” latino gang… and Holder was?? and ODUMBO is??? and Sharpton is??? all Three Occupied about that lack of OSCARS for Black actors… now that is what matters to thee IDIOTS!

  • Maybelle says:

    I am a woman and I ran into the problems in the early 50’s and I would like to tell Mr. Holder that black men came in front of women! But I did not let that stop me nor did complain about it all the time, I just fought against it, and today I accomplished most of what I wanted, and the rest, well we can not have everything no matter who we are. So stop complaining and get on with life.

        Pardon me but, “Insane crap.”

        1. The redhawk says:

          Well YES!! But I might also add DELUSIONAL Piece of Crap…. Now that Putin Might be hiring Holder to Conduct an Honest and Transparent investigation over the Shooting of that Putin opposition man…based on his Through ( NOT) Investigations and LIES by the minute, holder just might last a lifetime with Putin..UNLESS Obama recommendation of Holder as a CORRUPT TURD will actually Turn Putin to question Barry’s Flexibility next time they meet in a SAuna…. OHH ahh UGHHH .

    2. Robert Wilson says:

      Joe; B.O can not help what he is because he is mentally challenged.

        and a TURD!

  • savage24 says:

    You can call Holder whatever you like, but it was the United States Senate that confirmed him for the job of Attorney General. Everybody with two or more active brain cells knew that Holder was less than desirable when he was in the DOJ during the Clinton administration. And these idiots in the Senate are going to do it again by confirming Lynch. It’s almost impossible to fix stupidity when dealing with an apathetic and lazy electorate.

    1. hpinnc says:

      The only reason this “racist” got picked for AG in the first place is congress was taken over by these leftist/marxist/socialist who are not happy if they don’t have something to whine about. Holder is from the same mindset as Al Sh–face, Jesse J. & Revverrrand William Barber of NC, & Rev. Wright. The only way they are going to be happy is to annihilate all the “white” people & give the country to them. Then I think they might be happy. They despise white people, they have been done wrong by white people, so therefore they must destroy the country in order to get justice for them. We do not need anymore “civil rights” laws to protect hoodlums like Trevon & Mike Brown. Both these guys were killed in self defense, Both these white guys would be dead today, if they had not acted when they did, but you try telling that to a stupid black with the mindset of Al Holder. I hope he goes back to Chicago & stays, never to be heard from again.

  • Savior says:

    Nice try Bozo !!! No way, Federal Government needs to stay out of state, city, county, etc. law enforcement. We do not want to end as a Gestapo type Police State like was used to control Germany by Hilter and his Cronies. That would be just another -Next Step- to taking away more of our Freedom and our Constitutional Civil Rights. Thank God our ForeFathers had the fore site to protect us from becoming a Monarchy, that’s exactly why we must protect and keep our Constitution in tact and stop those who don’t & won’t uphold it, especially after Swearing under Oath to do so…..

    1. hpinnc says:

      Al Holder had absolutely no business going to Ferguson during all the chaos that went on there. It was nothing the local state authorities could not handle themselves. I think by him & Al Sharpton showing up just ramped up the situation & made it worse.

  • David in MA says:

    Holder, the only race issues that are negative are the old tired out ones you and your kind try to use to justify your criminal lives.

    1. Robert Wilson says:

      David; And the times the courts slap your hand while caught in the till.

  • Art Hock says:

    Eric Holder just can’t except the fact that he is an incompetent racist jerk-off.

    1. hpinnc says:

      **** and the fact he was born black, & will probably die black, unless he can find out Michael Jackson’s secret formula for turning you white.

      1. The redhawk says:

        Heck he can go to any ACE store and BUY WHITE PAINT BY THE GALLON .. but even them painted with it HOLDER will always be a MORON TROLLING FOR EXCUSES after EACH LIE HE TELLS! He is an Incompetent Coward PSYCHOPATH!

  • robb1952 says:

    The government is a big part of the problem! It cannot change nor force a person’s heart, only the Lord Jesus Christ can through a personal relationship with Him.

    1. Robert Wilson says:

      robb; Without GOD, there is no country, no government, no USA.

  • ralph says:

    If this is the way this jerk face jack ass thinks he has no reason to be in leader ship much less the head of the justice department for his thinking is whites are all the problem and poor blacks that we the whites have been supporting all of our lives

    1. hpinnc says:

      Think of the billions of tax dollars that has been spent since LBJ declared war on poverty, back in 1968. Remember he was going to stomp out poverty. If the government gave every single black born since 1968 a million dollars each, how many would have lifted themselves out of poverty, & how many would have blown the whole million dollars & be back wanting more from the government. Some people [black & white] you simply cannot help, no matter how hard you try, they are never satisfied, your help is never enough, & goes unappreciated.

      1. ralph says:

        I know this for a fact I tried to help people and out of hundreds that I gave to and served I can only tell you of one the grew. What you are saying to me I have already found it to be completely true and I turn people away now.

  • James in Texas says:

    How sad that the venerable former Democrat Party has come to putting forth a scoundrel such as this as their “Best and Brightest”! But, then again, dictatorial governments have always held in high esteem folks like Lenin, Stalin, Hitler, Mao, Castro, Pelosi, Reid…………………. Sad day when “they all” awake to find that their freedoms were also being stolen, and by then, it will be too late!

    1. hpinnc says:

      Yep, but that’s the sad state of affairs in the country today, James. Our freedoms are being taken away, little by little, until one day, we will be like the frog that started out in the warm water, but little by little was boiled to death. Little by little our country is slipping towards marxist/socialist/communism. It has been tried & tested. It never has worked until it is forced on the people & they have to be happy with it. Look at NK, Venezuela, Cuba, Chile, China. I am fearful for the USA, if we don’t change our course, we are headed for a shipwreck.
