RUSH: You know who got bullied yesterday was Eric Holder. Eric Holder. Yes, he got bullied by a racist, Louie Gohmert. That's the spin on that story yesterday from none other than Holder. Holder showed up... Here you've got a guy, Al Sharpton, who has this group called the National Action Network, which exists because of racist shakedowns of businesses, racial shakedowns.
And here's the Reverend Sharpton who may or may not have been an informant. The latest we have here is that he was caught by the FBI dealing or using cocaine seven months before any mob ties developed and that he was flipped into a mob informant because he faced the cocaine business. Anyway, he has an undeniable criminal past and criminal linkage.
So they asked President Obama, "Well, what are you doing going there?"
"Oh, no, no. We don't pay attention to what happened in the past. That's irrelevant. The history doesnt matter. This is wonderful event, and we respect Reverend Sharpton immediately and totally. What happened in the past, that doesn't matter."
"Oh, so what Bush did in his eight years doesn't matter then?
"Well, no, not exactly. What Bush did is all that matters. But what the Reverend Sharpton did? No, no. That's of no concern.
From the Washington Examiner: "Obama Unconcerned About Al Sharpton's History with the FBI and the Mafia." I'm telling you, it's a fitting place for Holder to make his remarks about Louie Gohmert. Wherever this was, whatever hotel Sharpton's meeting is held at, it's "the house that racial shakedowns built." The National Action Network is the house that racial shakedowns built. And it was happening at the same time the Reverend Jackson was conducting similar business for the Monochrome Coalition.
"For the record, according to media reports, NAN has been allowed to skirt paying $1.9 million in back taxes..." Listen to this list of things here. Sharpton's National Action Network, the House that racial shakedowns built, owes nearly $2 million in back taxes and they have for years, taxes and penalties. This is since 2006. For eight years they have floated on this! Can you? Can you float eight years owing the IRS $2 million?
Yeah, ask Lois Lerner about it. She's coming up. So, I mean, at this point I don't even think it would do any good for Sharpton to call Tax Defense Partners. Nobody has any expirience here in dealing with somebody who's been floated by the IRS for eight years owing $2 million. Maybe they could help; I don't know. But I don't know anybody else who's been allowed to float like this.
But that's not it. "After it was found to have improperly reported the taxes NAN owed. And according to other reports, the Reverend Al also still owes more than $888,000 in personal debts related to his failed 2004 presidential campaign, as well as more than $100,000 in related debts to the federal government. " So there's a lot of debt that the National Action Network and Al Sharpton personally seem to not to have to be worried about.
And these minor details are not gonna keep Obama from speaking once again at the annual confab. Right here it is: "Obama Unconcerned By Sharpton's History with the FBI and the Mafia -- President Obama isn't worried about the Rev. Al Sharpton's history as an FBI informant with ties to the mafia, his spokesman said, and doesn't think that the news makes his impending visit to Sharpton's National Action Network awkward.
"'Rev. Sharpton and the National Action Network have made significant contributions to civil rights efforts, and the president looks forward to appearing at the conference,' White House [spokeskid] Jay Carney ... The New York Daily News says that 'Sharpton allegedly became an FBI informant after he was caught on tape with a drug kingpin discussing cocaine deals.'"
That takes us back us to Eric Holder, who appeared at Sharpton's house that racial shakedowns built, the National Action Network. Holder went over there after being grilled by the House committee, the Judiciary Committee, and we played for you the sound bites of how that went yesterday. So here's Holder. Before Gohmert asked a question, he said, "I know you don't care about contempt, but..."
Holder said, "I wouldn't go there, buddy. I wouldn't go there."
Gohmert said, "What, I shouldn't go there?"
"No, no, I don't think you should assume it's not a big deal to me. It's a very, very big deal to me."
Gohmert said, "Well, I don't see any evidence it's a big deal. You haven't come forth with any documents, haven't answered any questions. There hasn't been any ground covered and no progress made." So it was not a pretty sight. So Holder goes over to the National Action Network, and here's a portion of what he said...
HOLDER: The last five years have been defined by significant strides and by lasting reforms, even in the face -- even in the face -- of unprecedented unwarranted, ugly, and divisive the adversity.
HOLDER: You look at the way the attorney general of the United States was treated yesterday by a House committee. It had nothing to do with me. Forget that. What attorney general has ever had to deal with that kind of treatment?
HOLDER: What president has ever had to deal with that kind of treatment?
Eric Holder Plays Race Card: What AG & POTUS Have Ever Been Treated This Way
This is never going to stop until someone responds with more force. I remember the good old days. If you called someone a name you’d better get ready to defend yourself.
Listened to this while driving this morning. The gist of what I heard Holder say was that any criticism of Holder or Maobama is, of course, driven only by “RACISM!!!”
Cracka made me do it.
The rule of law is not orientated toward one skin pigmentation or another.
if somehow SOMEONE would tie SHARPTONS Name.....and his FULL CAREER to Holder and hence Obama.....ALL of em would be rendered Defunct!
Big bullies usually are nothing but a big crybaby when the chips are down.
You must ignore my blatant corruption ... because racism.
Holder’s a victim? Oh good grief.
The Entitlement-Mentality State:
The home invasion robbery that never ends.....
Whingey li’l beyotch, ain’t he? Embarrassing, for him.
Holder had a testy exchange at a House Judiciary Committee hearing w/ Rep. Louie Gohmert, R-Texas. Holder seemed to take umbrage at the mention of "asparagus."
Holder was understandably upset---he thought the committee was talking about his penis.
Or as his wife refers to it --- the "asparagus tip."
