Attorney General Holder has called America "a nation of cowards" when it comes to "things racial." According to Holder, "average Americans" are afraid to "talk enough with each other about race."
By using the word "cowards," Holder has gotten himself some attention, at least for today. That's ironic because his (long-winded speech) is 99 percent content free.
To add to the irony, in the one place where Holder introduces a little content, he demonstrates that he has no interest in genuine dialogue, and reveals himself to be a "coward" on "things racial."
Here is Holder on the crucial issue of "affirmative action" (a coward's name for race-based preferences):
There can, for instance, be very legitimate debate about the question of affirmative action. This debate can, and should, be nuanced, principled and spirited. But the conversation that we now engage in as a nation on this and other racial subjects is too often simplistic and left to those on the extremes who are not hesitant to use these issues to advance nothing more than their own, narrow self interest.
So in one breath, Holder calls for a frank discussion of race, rather than the normal polite talk that evades tough issues; in the next breath, he attempts to rule out of the debate positions that he finds "extreme" while demonizing those who hold them. In the one instance where Holder is willing to be specific, we learn that his real complaint is not the absence of candid discussion, but rather the articulation of positions he doesn't like.
We have plenty of problems as a nation. I doubt that insufficient discussion of race is one of them. But if it is, Holder's mindset is part of the problem, not part of the solution.
This guy is damn nuts!!!!
This bastard called me a racist coward. I am offended. I want payment for damages. What? I don’t qualify because of the place of birth of my grandparents?
I am amazed that people in such a priveleged position, afforded them through this wonderful country....would attack the very fiber that put them in such prosperity.
We know that Obama would have none of that.
Alan Keyes responds to Holder:
Hey Obama!....your appointments are racists! Why is he calling Americans cowards? What the hell are you doing Zero? Your bunch of nutty appointments and you can go to hell!
What did we do in November when we allowed this crew to take over? I will never talk to anyone about race as it becomes a monologue, not a dialogue. If I were to say anything nagative, I would be called racist etc. I just want to live and be left alone.
We’ve got our first affirmative action President.
What’s the problem?
(The stock markets heading back up yet?)
A nation of cowards enacted the 1964 Civil Rights Act. But what do I know?
Holder’s comments are not appreciated out here in the heartland.
I would suggest Holder get in his Escalade and cross the Hudson river or the Potomac and look around the rest of the US. He will be shocked at how inaccurate his comments are.
He is what I call an “Urban Redneck”. No common sense. No experience outside of the city he lives in. Just another “urban cracker”.
A nation of cowards established a Martin Luther King holiday. But what do I know?
A country preoccupied with one race’s notions of race will lose the race.
They (many of them) will always be slaves of one kind, or another.
...and this one:
But ok, I'll bite...let's discuss Asians.
Yeah...that's what I thought....
America is also afraid of using the 2nd amendment as it was intended to be used.. Instead the 2nd is identified for hunting or target practice.. NOT revolt..
Americans might have become cowards.. at least the ones Not in the military.. Pure genius getting all the Americans with any courage out of America into Iraq and Afganistan.. That way no revolt could happen.. Only cowards remain.. Eric Holder might seeing only the tip of a cowardice iceberg.. Cowardice toward race may be only a symptom..
Brilliant really.. Preparation for a coming President for Life.. and the socialist coup..
He is just reparations-agenda tweaking:
gay = happy = homosexual
coward = fearful = racist
We are seeing what the left really thinks. They hate themselves and this country.
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?
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."
"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."
“And Black History Month.”
And, thank GOD, that month is more than half over for ‘09.
When is White History Month?
Afraid to talk about race? Hell, all I hear at work is NASCAR, NASCAR, NASCAR. I wish the dang race fans would shut up once in awhile!
This one Nails It.
Thanks for setting the record sraight.
Frank talk about race:
I doubt any white person with a history like Holder’s could have become Attorney General.
Holder is a brazen hate monger of the most despicable variety.
People like him should be banished from the country instead of being rewarded.
I was just pointing out what a treasonous dirt bag the guy is. I don't pay much attention to anything these losers say on a daily basis. I try to skip pass the BS and get right to the heart of the matter.
Yes, Mr. Holder, we’re all cowards, in fact I come from a long line of cowards.
1809 Elias Harris Kimbrell born, Boone Co. Ky. volunteered with the Union Army at age 54.
1849 June 11, James Kornelius ONeal born Bradley Co., Ar. 6/30/1918 Served with the Union 1864-65
1865 Feb. Blackburn ONeal (Union) killed in action at Ft. Lewisburg, Ar.
Andrew Kimbrell, fought for the Union.
And that’s just a few of them.
How about leadership by example, not empty oratory. He’s just going out of his way to say “Hey look at me, I’m black, I’m black!” Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. said something about judging people by their character, not the color of their skin.
Gotta love it Both Obama’s Ivy League undergrad, Ivy League Law, Eric Holder Ivy undergrad and Ivy Law. Let’s see, three African American Ivy’s and he is bitching about racism. I was looking at his resume and didn’t see any Military service. Could that be due to a streak of cowardice or just another Lib loathing the Military?
“According to Holder, “average Americans” are afraid to “talk enough with each other about race.”
He’s absolutely right. In any discussion about race, the minute a participant quits spewing mindless left-wing hyperbole, they’re called a racist, a bigot and worse. If they’re at work, their job may be in jeopardy, and if they’re on a college campus, their education is finished. It takes alot of courage to speak the truth about race these days; ask Ann Coulter, Charles Murray, Rush, Hannity and everyone else who’s been singled out by the hate-mongers on the left.
and a Nation of Cowards died for the freedoms we all enjoy.
Now, these Socialists want to flush them down the toilet because nah nah nah nah nah, they have the power.
Bwahahahahaha! > spit! < whatever,( feline characterization of Mr Holder removed to preserve the rest of the post)!.
