Skip to comments.Actually, Eric Holder, Other AGs Have Faced 'That Kind of Treatment'
Posted on 04/10/2014 12:26:38 PM PDT by Nachum
Speaking at Al Sharptons National Action Network conference on Wednesday, Eric Holder took exception to criticism of his tenure as attorney general. He even hinted that the unprecedented, unwarranted ugly and divisive adversity was motivated by racism. It had nothing to do with me, forget about that,? Holder said. What attorney general has ever had to deal with that kind of treatment? What president has ever had to deal with that kind of treatment? Holders notion that past attorneys general have escaped widespread criticism, or that criticism directed toward him is solely race-based, overlooks incidents of those before him, including

The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
Ed Meese, anybody?!
Yes, but Ed Meese is a white guy. That makes a big difference.
No Attorney General or president have ever behaved as badly either.
Hiding behind the melanin skirt.
What a coward and a crook.
He is just feigning outrage to set up the race accusation.
They pinned Holder down and he cried “racism!” - Shocker!
We know who the real racists are.
Wow, an America-hating commie crook and a gigantic crybaby all in one.
What Nixon was accused of and Clinton did , pales in comparison to Urkel’s actions.
They murdered that AG “W” had.
Holder truly believes he is the center of the universe.
Humility in unknown to him.
Eric’s there so as to show that there can be someone more inept, more corrupt, and even more clueless than the Obamadork/felon.
Lawyers out there, why, oh why, do you allow these clowns to pretend that they are even close to being able to handle the understanding and administration of law?
say it with emphasis on the “a-hol” part.
What better place to peddle the race card that at Al Sharpton’s event?
Holder was ready with his pack of ‘Race Cards’.
Obviously, Holder has never studied American history. John Mitchell was the AG while Holder was busy forcing his way into faculty offices at Columbia. Harry Daugherty is another AG who comes to mind.
Holder has brought this on himself. Its not about “race.” Its about Holder’s refusal to comply with Congressional evidentiary requests, orders and subpoenas.
Holder is a very strange cat. He has purposefully ececuted his duties in a manner which would bring about his own impeachment.
Now he is whining about it?
Holder is about to be impeached, and for good reason.It has nothing to do with race.
Holder and Obama are so unfit to hold any office.
Give them credit for agility and unity of movement. They're good.
However, to be forced to that meme (Clinton talking of voting rights, Holder talking of his unprecedented treatment, Pelosi talking of the Racism in the GOP preventing Amnesty etc.) so early in the cycle shows they are scared as hell and know they're in trouble.
Their focus is the stir the base and save as many "safe" seats as possible.
It is also likely they are AWARE that they are pissing off middle America and are willing to sacrifice every single Red State Democrat holding office today.
Desperate times for Democrats.
WE all knew that you sob! Playing the race card is getting old.
Holder needs to be brought back into Congressional hearings and bitch-slapped for lying once again. I guess someone in Congress needs to read him the list of others who were treated in the same fasion or worse since he is apparently going to keep on lying to the uneducated people he shills for.
What a piece of crap. He’s even worse than his boss.
But, but, they dissed a knee-grow
I always forget the “white guy” stuff! Thanks for reminding me, lol.
How many AG’s, once they’ve realized that they are headed towards impeachment, have attempted to stir up class and racial division to keep themselves out of jail?
Really, this thing he has done is about as evil as I can imagine.
Speaking of AG Holder, something has been bugging me since he was appointed.
He was the US Attorney for DC(?). He declined to prosecute a Democrat(can’t remember who, a Clinton crony maybe?). Shortly after that he was bumped up to Assistant AG in the Clinton Admin.
He had shown himself as a guy who would put party politics above the law.
I have looked and looked and I can not find any information on this. Its possible its been scrubbed? Does anyone recall the name of the Democrat who was in trouble?
Someone else called it pigmentocracy. I thought it was a good way to describe it.
It’s no the least bit surprising that Oamalama would appoint an AG who is a delusional as he is.
Must be nice to never be able to be criticized simply because your skin is black.......
Eric WithHolder will not prosecute IRS Gangster Lois Lerner, of course, and even if he did, Barack Al-Obama would likely pardon her for her Federal crimes. But, can she be prosecuted in any STATE courts??
Eric Holder: The man who puts the OJ in DOJ
I was watching Fox today. Someone said all that Obama and Holder have to do, is exactly what they are doing now, just stonewall everything, and eventually it will all go away, and they win. Unfortunately, we have heard it all before, no one will ever be held accountable for anything, and it WILL happen again. I know it sucks, and makes our blood boil, but that is reality. I don’t know what else we can do. The Pubbies seem powerless.
Yes, Holder plays the race and victim card.
He also plays power card. “I’m more powerful than You!How dare you speak to me!”
He fashions himself as second in command. Just wish a republican would remind him during the hearing, that the branches of government are equal (or so they were).
Q: How does one tell when AG Holder is officially Obstructing Justice?
A: When he uses the race-baiting card while on TV.
Republicans impeached the last Democrat President who just happened to be lily white!
You don't get to decide which laws to enforce!!
You took an oath to enforce ALL the nation's laws!
