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 universitys 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.
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.

This shouldn't surprise anyone. Take a look at EVERYONE 0bama surrounds himself with. Yet, we're supposed to believe he is a patriot who loves this country.
No surprise. It was black Panthers in California who were the most strident proponants of gun rights in the 1960’s. Now that they rule, they’ve reversed themselves.
Terrorists, radicals & tools...oh my!
Take your pick.
He was Black back then ,so it was OK
Why does my GAYDAR go off when I that photo of Holder? Whoop, whoop whoop whoooop whoooooop ) ) ) ) ) ) ) )
As if anyone in this country gives a rat’s ass. “Patriot” and “love of country” mean very different things than they used to.
When I was in college (1965-1969) and in ROTC we had a group of Students for a Democratic Society (SDS) on the campus. I never participated of course, but I heard that my ROTC brothers used to light up the SDSers for fun on a Saturday night.
WWO - knowing this, I’m surprised Obama didn’t put him in charge of the military. He could have done a lot more damage there....
I was in Air Force ROTC at New Jersey Institute of Technology from 1975 to 1978. There were a few clashes between to Cadet Corps and the Students Revolutionary Brigade (Maoist brats) for Rutgers Newark, just across the street.
“Now that they rule, theyve reversed themselves.”
Now that our laws don’t apply to them, only White people will be disarmed, is more like it.
