Eric Holder participated in Ďarmedí takeover of former Columbia Univ ROTC office
Daily Caller ^ | October 1, 2012 | unknown

Posted on 10/01/2012 1:28:44 PM PDT by thouworm

As a freshman at Columbia University in 1970, future Attorney General Eric Holder participated in a five-day occupation of an abandoned Naval Reserve Officer Training Corps (ROTC) headquarters with a group of black students later described by the university’s Black Students’ Organization as “armed,” The Daily Caller has learned.

Department of Justice spokeswoman Tracy Schmaler has not responded to questions from The Daily Caller about whether Holder himself was armed — and if so, with what sort of weapon.

Holder was then among the leaders of the Student Afro-American Society (SAAS), which demanded that the former ROTC office be renamed the “Malcolm X Lounge.” The change, the group insisted, was to be made “in honor of a man who recognized the importance of territory as a basis for nationhood.”

The weapon is now in the hands of a cartel in Mexico and is being used to shoot up birthday parties.

Not as crooked, but crooked. Holder was Asst. Atty. General back then.

So...WE are the “anti-government people” and he is NOT...?

JUST WOW...!

It’s almost like he could go out and do ANYTHING —like burn down a church full of people and kids.

Right? Ah, but that’s totally ridiculous.

No evidence he was ever arrested or convicted.

"Holder told Columbia University’s graduating law students during a 2010 commencement speech that the 1970 incident happened “during my senior year,” but Holder was a freshman at the time."

Unfortunately, the college was cowed into not pressing any charges against any of them. Appeasement at its best. They even gave them the building and they named it the Malcolm X lounge. See what happens when you don’t prosecute thugs and lawbreakers? They grow up, cut their hair, and eventually run the government’s justice department.

"Did any of this crap come up during his confirmation hearings?"

Not to my knowledge. Excesses of youth, etc., like Ayers. /sarc

"Holder particularly “connected with four other African-American students” at Columbia, correspondent Wil S. Hylton wrote. “We took over the ROTC lounge in Hartley Hall and created the Malcolm X Lounge,” said a laughing Steve Sims, one of those students."

Hylton described Sims as “the attorney general’s closest friend” and “a man Holder describes as his ‘consigliere.’”

"Among the black professors who publicly supported Holder and the SAAS during this period was Black history teacher Hollis Lynch, who is one of four professors Holder later said “shaped my worldview.”

" He told Columbia magazine several years ago that professors Eric Foner, Hollis Lynch, Fritz Stern, and Dwight Miner “shaped my worldview.”"

Pinging a few Freepers. Is this "old" news? Did we know all of this?

In 1981 (while Obama was at Columbia) a group of Black Liberation Army folks teamed up with some Weather Underground types and killed two policemen and an armored car guard in Nyack NY (25 minutes North of Columbia University). One of the killers, a Columbia University PHD recipient is now on the faculty at Columbia.
Guess who raised her kid while she was in jail? Bill Ayers and Bernadine Dorn: those folks from the neighborhood where Obama lived in Chicago. Small world.

Holder graduated from Stuvesant High School, one of the best high schools in the country.

NEWYORKCITYGOPMAN, graduated from Stuyvesant HS, too, the same year, June 1969.

I may or may not have been in classes with him. I do NOT remember him.

I am not sure if I interacted with HOLDER, but I definitely did interact with another leftist POS. In March 1970 when the town house house blew up on West 11th Street, one of those killed in the explosion was TED GOLD, one of the leaders of the SDS at Columbia. They were making explosives to use at a dance at Fort Dix. Many military personnel and others there would have been killed, so thank goodness they goofed and just killed themselves. I belive Bill Ayers was involved in the planning of the potential Fort Dix military massacre. Ted Gold’s father, a doctor, and a mediocre one at that, was known as the doctor to the radicals. When you hear a parent loses a child, your natural instinct is to express sorrow and sympathy. NOT in this case!

TED GOLD lived in my building and I played stickball with him.

We never had dealings other than the stickball. But if he knew that I was a Republican activist, he might have given ME a hard time. I don’t think he knew anything about me, other than as a neigbhor and a ball player.

I guess, as with any Administration, there can be a debate about the merits, or lack thereof, the President’s policies.

But there is NO debate about this. This President has been close to some of the most evil American leftists and haters, you could possibly imagine. And he’s proud of this.

Eric Holder was Deputy Attorney General in the Clinton administration.

He was instrumental in getting the Marc Rich pardon through. Corruption runs deep.
