Attorney General Holder coins America "A Nation of Cowards"
The Daily Change ^ | 2192009 | TDC

Posted on 02/19/2009 9:16:15 AM PST by TheDailyChange

Today Eric Holder, the nation’s first Black attorney general, gave a speech to allegedly commemorate Black History Month. Mr. Holder divisively stated, “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.” This statement and the ones that followed place an inappropriately high focus on race and “racial issues” rather than demonstrating an aim to promote national unity during a most charged and unstable time in our nation’s history when daily survival and the future of American generations to come is at stake. Both Eric Holder and Robert Reich, two top level Obama cabinet members, have both already illustrated their racially motivated agendas rather than serving as proponents of American solidarity.

Eric Holder's role in the pardons of BLA (Black Liberation Army) comrades/Weather Underground members, Susan Rosenberg and Linda Evans (Brinks Truck robbery and triple murder):

Eric Holder, Bill Clinton, Wright's 'Black Liberation' "church", and the pardons of 16 members of the Puerto Rican Marxist terrorist group FALN:

"Fraunces Tavern is a restaurant and museum in lower Manhattan, New York City. It was built on the site of a former building which played a significant role in pre-Revolutionary activities, and in which, on 4 December 1783, General George Washington bade farewell to his officers at the end of the Revolution, before returning to his home, Mount Vernon."
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fraunces_Tavern
_________________________________________________________

"During the 1970s and 1980s, FALN members set off at least 138 bombs in five major U.S. Cities. Six Americans were killed in those attacks. One of those bombings, in January 1975, was at the historic Fraunces Tavern in lower Manhattan while patrons were at lunch. The explosion killed four and injured more than 50."

_________________________________________________________

"Between 1974 and 1985 the FALN (Puerto Rican Armed Forces of National Liberation) organized 120 terrorist bombings in the United States. Many Americans were killed in those bombings, and many more were crippled. In 1983, another Puerto Rican terrorist group known as the Macheteros, attacked and robbed a Wells Fargo armored car in Connecticut. The Macheteros intended to use the money to finance a terrorist campaign against the United States. Working under the cover of Puerto Rican nationalism and claiming to act on behalf of the 'oppressed people of Puerto Rico,' the FALN and the Macheteros are nothing but Communist revolutionaries. Both groups were organized by Fidel Castro's secret police. The ultimate goal of the FALN and the Macheteros is the creation of an independent Marxist-Leninist dictatorship on the island of Puerto Rico."

Mr. Eric Holder
Attorney General of the United States
12/18/2009

Dear sir:

I have been an American citizen for almost thirty years but when I arrived to this land of freedom it was as a political exile and at the time I proudly considered myself a Cuban national. My single minded objective was then to gather resources to help liberate Cuba from the criminal yoke of totalitarian communism. I am now 74 and have obviously failed so far at that quest.

Nevertheless, trying to achieve that lofty purpose I joined a special volunteer unit within the U.S. Army entirely composed by Cuban exiled men between the ages of 18 and 31. I was inducted early in 1963 at Coral Gables FL. and given the orders and the responsibility for taking a group of 7 volunteers by train from that location to Ft. Jackson S.C. My orders included train tickets and a voucher to pay for a meal at the cafeteria located within the train station itself.

The attendant at the cafeteria refused to serve one of the men in the group due to the color of his skin. He was an Afro-Cuban. In turn I refused to sign the meal voucher. The attendant got really angry and started a situation which did not end in violence only because there were 8 of us -and ready- and he was only one. The cafeteria did not get paid and we went hungry.

After serving faithfully and honorably we were discharged from the U.S. Army and never seen each other again. President Kennedy’s call to arms to the Cuban exiled community was just a smart -and underhanded way- to keep us in check.

The reason I started this message with that piece of history is for you to know where I am coming from. Now to the subject.

A few hours ago you called the United States, and I quote: “...a nation of cowards”. I object sir! I object that statement coming from you. Let me tell you why. Have you ever put your life or your physical integrity on the line for the U.S.? Have you ever served, Mr. Holder? Not that I know, but you did something else.

While Assistant Attorney General you were deeply involved in the legal justification of a nocturnal armed invasion of a humble home in Miami’s “Little Havana”. Your raid failed to find even a harmless pocket knife, but a minor was taken forcefully -at the point of a gun- from the premises. Under the false pretense of his reunion with his father the unfortunate child ended up as a juvenile buffoon for a bloody Tyrant. That was an act of cowardice!

We Americans are not cowards. You are the coward! I am sure you will not read this message, but rest assured it will be published!

Very sincerely,

Hugo J. Byrne

In part I agree, white liberals are so scared to say anything derogatory against blacks.

Well, let me consider. I remember a guy named "Jimmy the Greek", and wasn't there a lady ballclub owner in Ohio? I also remember a brief stint on sports by Rush. I am sure there are many examples one could dredge up if you wanted to actually do serious research (like Google or something, just kidding I actually have a very serious mucho post graduate degree and have spent many hours in the "stacks"). Point being is that the reason we can't have a "serious discussion" about race is every time a white person brings it up the BLACK RACISTS like Holder make sure they get beat down into their ankles. For this @sshole to say we are cowards is really too much. I wish he lived next to me because if I saw him at the mailbox in the morning I would slap the pi$$ out of him. How is that for a discussion on race Eric? When your folks decide what we can call you without offending your feelings (I believe we have to hyphenate nowadays because one word just won't do and especially one that is also a color). I am so sick of hearing about this $h!t I can't stand it. Does it ever occur to any of these jerks that perhaps the way to "get past" this is to quit talking about it. Let it go away. Sensitivity sessions and Black History months don't help. Just let it go, will you? Of course race pimps can't let it go cuz then they would have to get real work. But whatever you do don't call BS on jerks like Eric Holder.

It ain't about black, it is about green and race pimps get their green from being black so they will never let it go.

A day or so after the election Jesse Lee Peterson said, “This election is all about black racism and white guilt”

Every day since is proving him right.

So Eric Holder, the Attorney General of the United States says that the U.S. is a “nation of cowards.” Now he’s complaining that folks in the U.S. won’t talk about racial issues. And that makes us cowards?

Read this: http://www.breitbart.com/article.php?id=D96E53483&show_article=1

I don’t care if Holder thinks people ought to get into discussions about the racial divide during Black History Month. There’s actually millions of people in the United States who don’t care about Kwanza. And I’m sure there are millions of people in the United States who don’t care about Reformation Day. But that doesn’t make anybody a coward. We’d just rather be talking about other things of more interest to ourselves, with people we care about who share our values and morals. For most of us, that doesn’t include greedy little politicians whose only goal in life seems to be becoming a millionaire.

Maybe, just maybe, the nation’s chief lawyer is setting a trap for people to make a comment, any kind of a comment, that even mentions another race. Maybe that’s how the Obama regime is going to try to get money out of the capitalists when the tax monies dry up.

I mean, after all, when the small businesses either start shutting down or start going under, there won’t be any employees working to pay income taxes. And the companies won’t be paying any company taxes.

All you’ll have left is a bunch of politicians in the Obama regime who can’t seem to remember that they have to pay income taxes. They can’t seem to remember that when they make money that’s not their salary, that has to be declared on their tax returns. Gee, does that mean the Democrats are going to have to start paying their own way because the Republicans will be broke?

What will they do when they can’t count on us anymore?

But cowards? I hardly think so. We’ve just learned to resist racial baiting from people like Holder. Besides, lawyers don’t know what to do with themselves if they can’t scare up a good fight between two sides.

That reminds me of a story of a guy who went to his 10th college reunion. He showed up in an old beat-up jalopy, wearing threatbare clothes. Looking none the worse for wear.

One of his pals asked him what in the world happened. After all, the guy had gone on to law school and was hoping to make his first million by age 30.

Then, at the 20th reunion, this same lawyer showed up in a brand new Mercedes and was wearing a $2000 silk suit.

“Wow, what happened to you? You’re certainly doing better. What’s the big secret here?”

To which the lawyer said, “Another lawyer moved into my town. Business has never been better.”

And what Americans fear is being sued by people like Eric Holder, Duval Patrick, Barack Obama, Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, and other poverty pimps for saying or doing something that those individuals will perceive as being racist. People are even afraid to say, “Nonsense!” when one of the poverty pimps screams, “RAY-ZIST!”

Eric Holder is a pathetic and divisive individual who lacks credibility. He is also at best extremely stupid. This can be seen from his words and actions. 9/11 could have been prevented if not for his unbelievable stupidity if not worse. Even though his role in the Mark Rich scandal is well known, Obama chose him and the Senate approved.

"Even when people mix at the workplace or afterwork social events, Holder argued, many Americans in their free time are still segregated inside what he called "race-protected cocoons."

Obviously not Mr. Holder. Have you bothered to check on how many racially-mixed children there are in this country?

“Obviously not Mr. Holder. Have you bothered to check on how many racially-mixed children there are in this country?”

Holder is not interested in facts—the fact that his own boss and he himself are clearly the products of racial mixing does not deter him at all from his attempts to bully.

He seems to be speaking double speak.
Is he the coward?
Is he saying self segregation on the weekends is a bad thing?
If so, is it something that needs addressing through government?
If so, what does he propose?

Why doesn’t he just spit it out?
What is to be done?

Where’s the ‘candid’ discussion on his part?
