Holder Embraces Being Called An Activist ’1000 Percent’
The Daily Caller ^ | 4 Aug 2014 | Chuck Ross

Posted on 08/04/2014 10:17:16 AM PDT by mandaladon

Eric Holder does not shy away from being called an activist – in fact, the U.S. Attorney General considers the label an honor.

“If you want to call me an activist attorney general, I will proudly accept that label,” Holder told journalist Juan Williams in an interview published at The Hill.

“Any attorney general who is not an activist is not doing his or her job,” he continued, adding that “the responsibility of the attorney general is to change things [and] bring us closer to the ideals expressed in our founding documents.”

Asked later about his response to critics who claim that the Justice Department houses an activist civil rights division and an activist chief, Holder said “I agree with you 1000 percent and [I am] proud of it.” (RELATED: Group That Listed ‘Pitfalls Of Working With White People’ Received DOJ Grants)

Holder also said he is troubled by the affirmative action stance of Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts, who opposes the policy in maintaining that “the way to stop discrimination on the basis of race is to stop discriminating on the basis of race.”

“There are still [racial] issues we as a society are working our way through,” Holder said. “And the lack of desire to do that, I think, undermines the ability that I think is inherent in the American people to make progress. But it also does not prepare us for demographic changes, the likes of which this country has never seen.”

His stance on race was on display early on in the Obama administration when Holder infamously claimed that the U.S. is a “nation of cowards” when it comes to racial issues............He works for an activist President who is intent on destroying America.

An activist is traditionally somebody who is working against or to change the current laws. A government official is sworn to uphold the current laws.

mandaladon .”.........................I thought his job was to enforce the law."

The job that he does is to interpret which laws he wants to enforce, nd ignore others .
This is a clear violation of his "oath of office" .

“Any attorney general who is not an activist is not doing his or her job,”

Political activism is supposed to happen in the Congress. Your job is to faithfully enforce the laws passed by that body and signed by your boss!

An examination of Holder's sordid career—the Marc Rich pardon is a highlight—shows that “activist” comes after “crook” and “bag man.” Had the Senate in 2009 been more evenly balanced Obama would not have dared submit Holder for nomination.

I hope that President Cruz’ Treason Commission encourages him to be proud to be a lifelong guest of the Graybar Hotel.
