He was fanning the flames of the inhumane practice of encouraging illegal immigration.

Anyone who states that this law is racist or is legalized profiling, etc. is guilty of one or both of these;

1. They've never read the law;
2. They are lying.

Plenty of both going around.

That’s exactly what we need to a proper discussion of race - nuance (outlined in detail).

Then he “doubled down”

by calling Arizona one of the most backward and racist states in the union,
and that all decent Americans oppose this law
(and by logical extension, the 70% that support it aren’t “decent”)

Obama and Holder and many others are simply against the effective enforcement of our immigration laws, and will oppose anything that seeks to improve enforcement, whether or not they’re read the specific laws.

Why should he bother? He can just spout the Obama narrative.

RE :"Mr. Holder was, of course, under no obligation to read the statute as originally written or as amended, nor was he under any obligation to speak publicly about it. However, for him to speak publicly and critically about the bill without having bothered to read it, and base his critique only on the basis of newspaper and television reports — most likely by people who had not bothered to read it either — was extraordinarily irresponsible. It was doubly so because the new Arizona law deals with problems created in a border state by the abject failure of the federal government to enforce the law, and seeks, to the extent possible, to fill the vacuum created by that failure. Mr. Holder is not the only government official with a penchant for commenting adversely on statutes and judicial decisions without having bothered to read them. He stands out because he is the official chief attorney of the United States. "

This a classic you wont see on MSNBC or CNN.

Almost always, this is one of the most telling "tells" that the individual is an amateur rather than a professional. A professional makes certain that his/her communications are accurate before spouting off; an amateur (holden, obama, kagan) shoots from the hip based on conclusions they had't reached until asked the question and/or before appropriately researching the data, taking the position that because they're in charge, anything they say is valid.

I am sure he has not, but I am sure he has the communist manifesto memorized.
