Hey, Eric Holder: Meet My People
Michelle Malkin .com ^ | March 4,2011 | Michelle Malkin

Posted on 03/05/2011 2:11:15 PM PST by Hojczyk

My fellow Americans, who are “your people”? I ask because U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder, who is black, used the phrase “my people” in congressional testimony this week. It was an unmistakably color-coded and exclusionary reference intended to deflect criticism of the Obama Justice Department’s selective enforcement policies. It backfired.

In pandering to skin-deep identity politics and exacerbating race-consciousness, Holder has given the rest of us a golden opportunity to stand up, identify “our people” and show the liberal poseurs what post-racialism really looks like.

Herman Cain is my people. He’s my brother-in-arms. I’ve never met him. But we are family. We are kin because we are unhyphenated Americans who are comfortable in the black, brown and yellow skin we are in. We are growing in numbers — on college campuses, in elected office, on the Internet, on radio airwaves, everywhere. And that drives liberals mouth-frothing crazy.

Cain is the successful Georgia businessman who has wowed audiences across the country with his passion for free markets, free minds and the American Dream. The former president of Godfather’s Pizza and forceful tea party speaker happens to be black. So he must pay the price that all minority conservatives in public life must pay. As I noted last week, a cowardly liberal writer recently derided Cain as a “monkey in the window,” a “garbage pail kid” and a “minstrel” who performs for his “masters.”

Race traitors. Whores. Sellouts. House Niggas. Self-haters. I’ve heard it for nearly 20 years in public life. Every outspoken minority conservative has. Sticks and stones may break our bones, but these spiteful epithets can’t enslave us.

Val Prieto is my people. A fierce, freedom-loving American blogger of Cuban descent, he rejects race-card games and refuses to be lumped in with Hispanic ethnic grievance-mongers.

Between the refusal to defend DOMA and these civil rights violations, it should be clear that Obama and Holder are unfit to serve the Country due to their prejudicial behavior and decisions.

and here's a whole BUNCH of MY un-hyphenated PEOPLE

My prediction: the RACIST democrats are gong to have a terrible time in election 2012...

their RACE CARD is maxed out - overdrawn - and they are piling up penalties. They'll be all but speechless without the RACE CARD.

This is twice now that Holder has revealed his racism when it comes to his decision process.

Why cannot he be removed?

Certainly, long before now, had a white AG made the comparable attestations, he would have been hanging by the yardarm long ago.

This is blatantly illegal.

Why isn't Congress moving to remove him?

“My People” might be well represented by the picture of the Mall taken from the Washington Monument on 8/28/10 (a/k/a the Beck rally).

You should and if you do, let me know.

I’ll come out with “Patriots for Palin” and if they eventually team up, both stickers on the same car would look good. ;>)

Holder is a flaming racist. He has no business being the Us Attorney General. Only a black racist would appoint such a bigot.

Hmm? On the bumper stickers?

Seems there’s a demand so I’ve asked Herman for permission.

had a white AG made the comparable attestations, he would have been hanging by the yardarm long ago.

Imagine if it had been John Ashcroft! There would be hearings. There would be demands for resignation. There would be a bill of impeachment on the House floor.

Holder's behavior is an outraged and beneath the office. Double-standards like this incite and inflame racism.

you say “Alan West! Love that guy. Hope I get to vote for him for President of the United States one day - he’s the real thing.”

Get in line!

I like Cain - but not for Pres. He’s too much a showman. He doesn’t have the gravitas nor the grounding of Col. West.

Below is a sampling of what West is about and how desparatly we need this man now. There’s not one person on the long list of possible GOP candidates that can save this country from it’s enemies: foriegn and domestic. They have too deep a foothold now.

Might I suggest you copy/paste the following for emailing and posting over and over from here on out?

Blurb for sending/posting

If we look to the GOP for our candidates, we will lose this country.

WE THE PEOPLE need to stand up and chose our ‘alternative.”

You want someone who would “aggressively reassert American interests and discipline on the rouge states...” etc.

LOOK OUTSIDE THE BOX - NOT to the Establishment.

You want someone who knows who are enemies are “Foreign and domestic” - and who will name them and who will fight them - and who our enemies will FEAR?

How about someone who knows our Constitution backward and foreward? How about someone who loves this country and also knows the Bible through and through? How about someone who knows Islam line by line and will face them down - and political correctness be damned? How about someone with decades of leadership and a proved record of standing firm, even at great personal loss, for what he knows is right?

Would you like a person like that? Or just another good ole boy from the worn out list of Establishiment candidates? That REALLY worked out great for us in 2008, didn’t it.

How many of you can think outside of the box?

Here’s just a few clip to think about - but while on YouTube, watch more on this man. (Israel wishes he could run for their Prime Minister.)

Revolution (over 2 1/2 million hits)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VP2p91dvm6M

to the muzzie from CAIR: “Don’t blow sunshine up my butt and tell me it’s warm and fuzzy...put down the mike and go home!” (PC be damned!)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9MZx38i6iYs

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kkWXEvOenNY

At a candidates table: idiots laugh and joke about a Marine’s question, clueless. Only one person could answer him - who knows who our enemy is. It’s not a laughing matter.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TkGQmCZjJ0k

at CPAC “NOW is the TIME (short clip from speech)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0mf33LIEt-g

on illegal immigration

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TkGQmCZjJ0k

A Draft movement - save these clips and send to everyone and check out other clips on YouTube. A proved leader like this, who kow tows to NO ONE, is what we need. We need new blood in DC - NO ONE from the “Establishment.”

CLEAN HOUSE -

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C7RKIpufStQ

Save these clips in a desktop file and email everyone and post everywhere. The Estabishment is afraid of Lt. Col West. The muzzies are. The demRats are and are doubly troubled because how do they use their favorite weapon: “RACIST! “

This man would hit the ground running - he’s a seasoned leader, he backs down to no one, He loves this country and will defend our Constitution against ALL enemies, “Foreign AND domestic.”

Throughout history, at it’s darkest moments, a leader will appear unexpectedly - “the man and the Time have met”
