Is racial animosity behind some political criticism of the Obama administration? Thats what Attorney General Eric Holder said on Sunday. The exact phrase he used was racial animus, which he said motivates some of his and Obamas political opponents.
Theres a certain level of vehemence, it seems to me, thats directed at me, directed at the president, Attorney General Holder told ABC. You know, people talking about taking their country back.... Theres a certain racial component to this for some people. I dont think this is the thing that is a main driver, but for some theres a racial animus.
Much of the opposition to President Obamas policies is ideological, Holder added. He said that 50 years after Freedom Summer, when civil rights activists moved into the South to try and register African-Americans to vote, the US has made lots of progress on issues of race. But there is still some distance to travel on the issue, said the attorney general.
Im very optimistic this country will get there ... [but] I think we are still a nation that is too afraid to confront racial issues, said Holder.
This has not gone down well with some on the right. At the National Review Hans A. von Spakovsky writes that Holders latest claim shows that the attorney general is disconnected from reality.
Holder has selectively enforced civil rights laws on a racial basis, as when he dropped a case the Justice Department had already won against the New Black Panther Party for intimidating voters in front of a Philadelphia polling place in 2008, according to von Spakovsky.
Holder views the world through a racial prism that distorts his judgment, he writes....

If a white man refused to cooperate with Congress and was in contempt it would be OK.
If a white man refused to prosecute thugs who stood outside of a polling place with billy clubs it would be OK.
In the New Black Panther voter intimidation case, the court held that Holder & Co. lied.
The same judge may likely find this month that Lerner and company lied.
This isn’t racial on our side, while Judge Walton ruled the DOJ lied about their partisan animus in favor of the Panthers and against the plaintiffs.
So it’s easy to see why Eric and his girlfriend both have a bad case of ‘red a**’: girlfrien’s gonna get popped again this month.
How about the racial bias that put these SOBs in office in the first place?
“Oh, but he’s black, why wouldn’t you vote for him”?
As though that somehow made him competent.
The current generation of white teens and young adults are least racist generation the world has ever known . They are tolerant to a fault and they have never oppressed anyone in their lives.
They elected the first Black president as a show of good will and that president has been the most divisive and racist in history
The race card has been overdrawn so much by the Obama Admin that America has revoked the card and cut it up with a big pair of scissors.
On the other hand, the current generation of young blacks is arguable the most racist, violent and hate filled generation in American history.
And that’s the plain truth
Eric Holder is a racist. Eric Holder is a misogynist. He is anti-woman.
obama and jarrett and holder are racial anuses,
Both Obama and Holder are race-baiting Troglodytes. Their perspective is stuck in toxic amber, as though it were still 1973, and everybody is waiting for the Weather Underground to ‘bring in all down’, and stick it to ‘the man’. Obama forgets that unfortunately, right now, HE is ‘the man’.
Afrofascist race racketeers..
And of course, it doesn't help that he's a corrupt political hack... Don't forget that he was behind both the FALN and Marc Rich pardons at the end of Clinton's administration.
Eric “my people” Holder openly testified before the Senate Judiciary Committee in June of 2009 that White Americans are NOT covered by federal hate crime laws when being violently attacked because of their race.
Since then hundreds and hundreds of whites have been murdered, raped, and thousands have been assaulted by blacks in racially motivated attacks while Holder turns a blind eye. Mobs of Holder Youth are continuing to attack whites in unprovoked knock out attacks, almost on a daily basis, to the complete silence of The Corrupt Liberal Media.
While holder ignores this rampant black on white racially motivated violence, he sent 10 FBI agents to Sanford Florida to go through Zimmermans past with a fine tooth comb hoping to find evidence of Zim having a bias against blacks. None was found. More recently, Holder sent federal agents to investigate whether a small town parade that had a float that mocked Obama was a hate crime.
That our Attorney General, the highest law official of the land is such a racist demagogue, is tragic. But radical leftists like Holder are par for the course in the disasterous Obama administration.
for me, it’s not racial animus but it is liar animus and idiot animus
