Eric “the red” Holder offends me! He should be replaced.
Himpton sound like Pimp-ton and that offends me!!
Who asked you Holder? Nobody, that who! Don’t you have some Lois Lerner emails to occupy your time with?
The AG of the Black KKK chiming in...
Redskins should keep name...just so liberals and faux Indians can whine like morons
Fast & Furious is offensive.
NSA Spying on Americans (and lying about it) is offensive.
IRS abusing conservative political groups (and lying about it) is offensive.
Refusing to enforce immigration law (and lying about it) is offensive.
Eric “The Red” Holder needs to clean up his own act ... or fall on his sword. He has no standing to bitch about a football team.
not as offensive as Eric (the RED) Holder.... the race baiting bastard child of Karl Marx
Is this all the nation’s “Top Cop” has to do? How do you go about getting that “job”?
You can't nor needn't reach the issue of whether "Redskin" is "offensive", because it is unconstitutional for the feds to inquire about it.
The Constitution DOES require the feds to butt out of our lives!
Goodness, NO! He's also investigating the outhouse that floated by in a small-town parade. These are weighty matters affecting the very foundations of the Republic.
MISS ME YET?
It’s funny, because this “story” seemed to kind of go away for a while, which means it’s really not offensive to virtually anyone. Almost nobody seemed to want to talk about it anymore. Instead people have been talking about other things that the dems don’t want them to be talking about, so it was important to try to steer the conversation back to the Redskins. Nice try, but it’s not going to work.
Derrick Holder? I thought it was Dick Holder...
I find the name ‘Holder’ is offensive. He should change his name to pigsh!t.
Dang! I forgot about that! Erik the Holder is a busy, busy man. I’ll bet he can never find time to attend any “New Black Panther” meetings.
Im offended having to see Eric Holder’s ugly ass face everyday..do I get compensated for that
I agree the name Washington Redskins is offensive.
They should remove the offensive part and be known as the Redskins.
I find both Anthony Weiner’s and Eric Holder’s last names offensive. After all, they sound like a bunch of weiner holders.
Those who are in serial contempt of Congress should have a gag order put on them.
Doesn’t this bastard have something more important to do. like enforce the nation’s laws?
I’m still holding out for “The Washington Tyrants”
Calling Eric the AG is offensive and should be changed!!
Re “Redskins offensive”:
Their defense isn’t so great either. Ba-da-bing!
left wing SI.com applauding the race hustling AG. SI is garbage- Peter King, the rest- complete left wing garbage...
Eric Holder needs to concentrate on the IRS, veterans admin, NSA snooping, presidential misconduct....and stop worrying about something that he cannot have an effect on.
Right on Yoda. You tell him.
If so, is it really appropriate that he lecture those in his adopted country on their racial attitudes? I do not want to step on anyone's toes; but, to me, one taken in, and permitted to enjoy the benefits that others have achieved, ought not to be insulting the culture of those whose achievements he is allowed to exploit.
Perhaps some lurker will challenge my sentiment.
Holder talking about ,What Ever , to try get a DISTRACTION going
“U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder says that the Washington Redskins’ name ‘ought to be changed’ and that it’s ‘an offensive name,’”
Then how about “Coffeeskins”, Meathead?
What I like about that list is you can add something new to it almost every week.
The 60’s must have been good for Holder.
if you say so Eric...I am sure that he appreciates the irony of his position as America was designed to be protective of the common citizen from the overreaches of the ruling class.
Eric should probably step down and await prosecution for the abuses he and this administration perpetrated upon this country...
Eric Holder is extremely offensive and should shut up!!
I hope to see him, in an orange jumpsuit, escorted away soon.
Hey Eric, get back to me when you turn yourself in to the FBI. Otherwise, shut it.
Although Eric hHolder has time to babble about the Redskins, he has yet to take action regarding the IRS crimes and the disgraced Lois Lerner.
