As student, Eric Holder participated in Ďarmedí takeover of former Columbia University ROTC office
The Daily Caller ^ | September 30, 2012 | Charles C. Johnson and Ryan Girdusky

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.

Black radicals from the same group also occupied the office of Dean of Freshman Henry Coleman until their demands were met. Holder has publicly acknowledged being a part of that action.

The details of the student-led occupation, including the claim that the raiders were “armed,” come from a deleted Web page of the Black Students’ Organization (BSO) at Columbia, a successor group to the SAAS. Contemporary newspaper accounts in The Columbia Daily Spectator, a student newspaper, did not mention weapons.

Holder, now the United States’ highest-ranking law enforcement official, has given conflicting accounts of this episode during college commencement addresses at Columbia, but both the BSO’s website and the Daily Spectator have published facts that conflict with his version of events.

[Holder]“I did not take a final exam until my junior year at Columbia — we were on strike every time finals seemed to roll around — but we ran out of issues by that third year.”

So I guess he got a 'pass' on all his exams until his junior year? I wonder how that worked.

He could have been a card-carrying Communist and it wouldn’t make a bit of difference to almost half of all Americans.

They are your garden-variety anti-American bastard thugs - the whole damn nest of them - the backed up sewerage of the 60’s and beyond.
