HOLDER: Whites Cant Be Victims of Racial Injustice Because They Havent Suffered Enough
March 2, 2011
Or, The Continuing Media Narrative of Acceptable Racism.
Dr. King once said, Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere. Apparently, US Attorney General Eric Holder didnt get the memo.
As reported and applauded by Politico, Holder announced Tuesday that he was fed up with listening to whining whites who claim the justice department deliberately blocks investigations of black on white racism. Predictably, the Establishment media sides with Holder.
Think about that,” Holder said. “When you compare what people endured in the South in the 60s to try to get the right to vote for African Americans, to compare what people subjected to that with what happened in Philadelphia, which was inappropriate .. .to describe it in those terms I think does a great disservice to people who put their lives on the line for my people,” said Holder, who is black.
Holder noted that his late sister-in-law, Vivian Malone Jones, helped integrate the University of Alabama.
“To compare that kind of courage, that kind of action, to say some Black Panther incident is of greater concern to us, historically, I think just flies in the face of history,” Holder said with evident exasperation.
So the obvious takeaway from this is that some racism is worse than others. Some racist injustice is worthy of prosecution, other racism is not. Apparently, whites simply havent suffered enough. They dont deserve legal protection. So, any injustices committed against white people should be swept under the rug. Its not worth Eric Holders time.
One might be shocked by the statements. One might even wonder why the media chooses not to attack Holder for his patently racist statements. After all, were a white man to suggest this, his career would be over in a hail of media machine-gun fire. Reporters would fall over themselves to attack him, and his family would be ruthlessly attacked in the community. His kids would have to stay home from school (assuming their teachers weren’t on strike, anyway), and hed get hate mail and death threats for decades.
But the Establishment Media’s lack of moral indignation isnt surprising. In America, its blasphemous to even suggest that whites could be victims of racial injustice.
Whites are the permanent oppressors in the mainstream media narrative, while all other races are the permanent victims. In fact, “white” and “oppressor” are essentially synonymous — meaning: whites are the bad guys. All whites have been lumped together and typecast in a bad reality TV show. Because whites as a group do not have clean hands, therefore, they are denied the right of seeking justice.
If that isn’t stereotyping, I don’t know what is.
The larger issue, of course, is that “whites as racists” constitutes the fundamental lens through which Holder views issues in America. During the healthcare debate, Holder likened opposition of Obamacare to opposition to civil rights. Not civil rights in the sense that, “all Americans share civil rights,” mind you, but “Civil Rights” as in the struggle for black legal equality in America during the 40’s-60’s. Translation: those who oppose Obamacare are racists. Such language is naked race-baiting and scapegoating. But Holder doesn’t care. Whites are the bad guy bogeymen, trotted out when it gets tough to pass legislation. And his recent comments reveal his paradigm: white Americans are generally racist and any time they oppose any Obama policy or “injustice” at the hands of a racist group, they’re either being racists or they’re simply not entitled to equal protection because they haven’t suffered as much as other groups.
Nobody is seeking to belittle the suffering of other people, here, but America seeks equality. This means equal protection under the law, not equality in historical racial suffering.
Holders statements are completely sadistic, and they betray his motives. He has a score to settle, and by his figure whites have a lot more suffering to endure before they have a right to expect justice from the Justice Department. Satisfying vendettas is for Mob Bosses, not the US Attorney General’s Office.
The Establishment medias silence regarding his racist statements demonstrates agreement and approval. Such hypocrisy. Such shame. Such racism.
... until Holder stepped in and dropped the complaint (and therefore the impending conviction) against the NBP and two of the individuals. Holder isn't reluctant to prosecute the remaining indvidual. He sought and obtained an injuction against him (Shabaz) preventing him from displaying a weapon at any Philadelphia polling place for three years ...
... but those actions are already illegal under the law. So why bother? Holder has not only refused to uphold the law but also dismissed convictions under the law for his people.
Holder isn't a thug by omission; Holder is a thug by commission.
.............I will go to bed tonight dreaming Mark Levin was a Senator on the panel and got to cross examine Holder!
We need some Mark Levin types in the Senate who will challenge these marxist/socialist’s! I’m tired of milk-toast gentlemanly responses/questions! Make em squirm! Make em dread coming before Congress! Make em lose sleep! Right now, it’s a walk in the park! Let Paul Revere ride again! Let’s throw a few hundred tons of tea into the harbor in Boston again! When is enough enough?!
Sorry, that is obviously a WHITE woman, and to be totally ignored by Eric Holder and the rest of the racists in DC!!!! >:-(
That's pretty strong words to a ten plus year FReeper, especially because that was the title of the article and the FReeper didn't make it up.
Holder may not have said those exact words but he refuses to answer whether it's true or not that one of his assistants told a room full of DOJ lawyers to prosecute only civil rights cases involving black victims.
In short, race comes first. It makes allies, not adversaries, of black criminals and prosecutors. On Tuesday, Mr. Holder again dodged questions asking him to deny that Deputy Assistant Attorney General Julie Fernandes had told her division to prosecute only civil rights cases involving black victims, not black perpetrators. He refused to release relevant documents about the decision-making behind dropping most of the Black Panther case. For two years, Justice has pressed for explicitly race-conscious legal action.
I believe the title of this article pretty much accurately reflects Holder and the appointed thugs working for him. I also believe you should do some beggin-your-pardons to smoothsailing.
“The larger issue, of course, is that ‘whites as racists’ constitutes the fundamental lens through which Holder views issues in America. During the healthcare debate, Holder likened opposition of Obamacare to opposition to civil rights.”
Holder’s attitude is precisely why Obama appointed him attorney general. They both dance to the same anti-white tune. Holder has made their agenda brazenly and chillingly clear.
It’s hardly a shocking revelation. Anyone who has read the Obama/Ayers book “Dreams From My Father” has no doubts at all that since he was in high school, Obama has been obsessively anti-white. His screwy mother planted in him the credo that blacks are to be worshipped; Frank Marshall Davis provided the ‘whites are the hated enemy’ indoctrination; with his b***s in her fist, Michelle led him to Jeremiah Wright - who groomed, trained, instilled - and then blessed Obama’s hatred of the white race, to the point that Obama - like Michelle, like Holder - wallows in a sanctimonious anti-white agenda.
And now he sits in the Oval. And Holder rules the DOJ. And if you’re not pleased with that arrangement, you will be eviscerated with their charges of racism. On Tuesday Holder as much as crowed their agenda: it’s payback time for the blue-eyed devils and their spawn.
Will there EVER come a time when these crazy bass turds say or do something that DOESN’T take us to a new low????
Holder is an obvious racist fool.
This SOB ought to be disbarred
From the late 1800’s to the 1960s or so we had the “separate but equal” doctrine in place to some extent where (supposedly) blacks and whites would have the exact same facilities available to them. Holder, and the entire Obama regime, believe we are no different today where were are separate and not equal.
They want this to continue, except discriminate against whites, Christians, etc., for their own political gain. They are no difference than the racists and segregationists of the past.
And while we are at it we may as well use a very large broom and sweep out the rest of the RATS and other scoundrels in this evil regime including those 37 CZARS who are not accountable to anyone.
Holders disgusting words betray him as incompetent to hold the office of attorney general.
He is a disgrace as a human being, as an American, and as a “black man.”
By the way, except for his tan complexion and kinky hair, he looks like a white guy to me.
Actually, he has mostly white features.
He probably got a lot of static from the darker — more “pure” blooded blacks growing up.
Down deep he is self hating and probably wishes he could be white.
Don’t make the mistake of thinking he speaks for most black people, anymore than the guilt ridden idiot’s in the lame stream media speak for most whites.
It goes without saying that ANYONE in Holder’s unbalanced and biased condition is unfit to hold any sort of power, in a civilized society, governed by the rule of law.
He needs to go!
Mr. Holder, you must resign effective immediately! This kind of “excuse making racism” runs counter to the American people as a whole and since you have made it clear you are not going to defend the Constitutional Rights of all Americans, irregardless of their “race,” you are in violation of your oath of office.
Rat fec...uhh...FACE, Yes. But don’t drag his mother into the fray. I’m sure she tried but even well intended mothers make mistakes.
When did we cease electing leaders? I have been greatly disappointed in some of the Republicans and disgusted by the democrats.
We are destrying ourselves.
...”tired of milk-toast gentlemanly responses/questions.”
That attitude is long gone. What we increasingly have is a SOP of go along-get along. It ain’t for nufin that before RINO was but a glimmer, someone coined the descriptors republicrats and democrans.
We are certainly witnessing the wisdom of those words today.
They think they can partake of greatness by destroying it
“What school actually gave this clown a law degree?”
A: Probably the same imaginary school that gave Hussein his imaginary degree.
I want to hear about this in the Republican primary. I want to hear a candidate stand up and declare direct opposition to the policies of our Attorney General Rev Wright.
That’s the kind of candidate I am looking for. The opposite of a John McCain “Barack Obama is a nice guy” candidate.
Any gun, even a handgun, WILL get you a better gun.
These people have blinders on. The history of the world is riddled with conquerers and the conquered. generally the conquered became slaves. All who have been through this celebrate their freedom but not this guy. For a progressive, he spends a whole lot of time “looking back”. How much injustice can there still be if we have a black president, first lady, AG, etc.? This guy is a hypocrite and a racist.
So, it looks like blacks are not ready to hold office in this country.
“my people?” so now he’s only the AG for “his people?” My great-grandfather fought in the Civil war for “his people.” My father lost his job to integrate the Houston Bus Terminal for “his people.” So my voting rights aren’t as valuable as those of “his people?” I hate this administration. I thought Clinton was bad. I actually voted for Carter but realize that his was bad. This is worse.
Holder and his ilk are precisely why this problem will never be fixed. What we have in this country are two camps of people diametrically opposed to one and of competing interests. Worse, the Federal Gov’t, regardless of who’s in the WH or the Congress has become more like unto a Foriegn gov’t because it’s subject to more and more strictures imposed upon it by the so-called International Community, (Global Marxists at the UN, IMF and World Bank). This means that every election will be a race based Cold Race War competition between the two competing interests. When Holder’s side wins.....the downward spiral of the fortunes of the Anglo community accelerates sharply; when the opposing side wins, the downward spiral of those same fortunes decelerates. Notice that the downward spiral “decelerates” but the direction remains the same....”downward”. The only real way to “level” the playing field is to severely restrict the powers of the U.S Federal Gov’t and return powers to the State and Local governments.
That will probably never happen to a degree sufficient to level the playing field.
Same goes for his boss!
I’m afraid he can’t be a racist if he is of African American decent.
I think that’s some type of common knowledge these days.
It’s sad that people and politicians are still comparing what happened many years ago to what is going on today. They are completely different situations.
If the ‘Pubbies (and any decent Democrats) don’t start IMMEDIATE impeachment proceedings against Holder, they’re a complete loss. Its is patently obvious to most casual observer that this is malfeasance and an impeachable offense.
He’s sure doing his level best to see that whites DO suffer enough .. his four short years in office (hopefully not 8) will more than offset 200 years of slavery and any other grievance he harbors.
We are a “nation of cowards” if we allow an Attorney General like Holder to continue holding his office.
Contact your Congresscritters:
Dear Representative Price:
I have the pleasure of living your district, and I support you and the Tea Party that helped elect you.
The statement by Attorney General Eric Holder statement to the effect of:
When you compare what people endured in the South in the 60s to try to get the right to vote for African Americans, to compare what people subjected to that with what happened in Philadelphia, which was inappropriate .. .to describe it in those terms I think does a great disservice to people who put their lives on the line for my people.
To compare that kind of courage, that kind of action, to say some Black Panther incident is of greater concern to us, historically, I think just flies in the face of history.
Seems to indicate that he is unwilling to enforce laws in the present day because they don’t come up past “historical” standards for offense. Frankly, this is malfeasance. Past offenses have no bearing on current enforcement of the law. If the man will not do his duty he needs to be removed. I am wondering when the impeachment proceedings will begin.
I am looking for to hearing from your office on this matter.
By looking at him you would think he was a Canadian.
Add my name to the list of “This guy needs to GO”...
Do you hear us now, Congress????????
And if you believe in the “one drop” rule that it takes only one drop of black blood to make you “black” and agree that we all descend from the African “Eve”, then we ALL be down with the struggle...
Holder and BO can say anything because they both know they will get away with it. Nothing will be done, they will get their checks, their bribes, their retirement—the money supply to them will never dry up and both know they are above the law. They are the law, and no one, no group, no nation, is going to do anything to stop them.
holder is obama
obama is holder.
all you need to know.
Too bad Holder is a leader in the Party who treated Blacks the way they did ..... and still do....the Ol’ Plantation is still here...it’s the Democrat Party.
Holder announced Tuesday that he was fed up with listening to whining whites who claim the justice department deliberately blocks investigations of black on white racism....
So.....Whites get to suffer now?
Yea right, try being white and living in Prince George’s County Maryland....better yet try sending your white kids to the public schools
Attorney General Holder is a RACIST.
He says so himself in public.
He prosecutes based on the color of peoples skin.
Reverend Martin Luther King would be so proud.
This guy suffered enough:
NJ Med Student Expelled For Calling Himself White African American
So I guess Holder is against using racketeering laws on anyone but the Mafia?
>>This is a grossly misleading headline and the OP should be ashamed of behaving like a lib.
Read the damn story to see what was ACTUALLY said and the context. It is nothing like the headline. Posting false and inflammatory headlines like this has been happening all too often recently and people assume it is the truth.
Even though Holder is an incompetent and divisive boob such behavior should be strongly discouraged.
Very well said. Such inflammatory and misleading headlines make us look stupid. There is enough truth that is damaging to the other side without resorting to hysterics.
That ole Conan's a pickle, ain't he?
Best I can figure, he thinks he's the guy who should be approving all headlines of articles to be posted on FR before they are posted!!! Imagine that!
I think instead of Conan the Conservative, we oughta call him Conan the Headline Sniffer.
Or maybe just
