HOLDER: Whites Can’t Be Victims of Racial Injustice Because They Haven’t Suffered Enough

Johnathon Burns

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 didn’t 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 haven’t suffered enough. They don’t deserve legal protection. So, any injustices committed against white people should be swept under the rug. It’s not worth Eric Holder’s 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 he’d get hate mail and death threats for decades.

But the Establishment Media’s lack of moral indignation isn’t surprising. In America, it’s 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.

Holder’s 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 media’s silence regarding his racist statements demonstrates agreement and approval. Such hypocrisy. Such shame. Such racism.

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.

Attorney General Holder is a RACIST.

He says so himself in public.

He prosecutes based on the color of people’s skin.

Reverend Martin Luther King would be so proud.

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's pretty strong words to a ten plus year FReeper

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

Conan the Sniffer!!!

Conan the Sniffer it is.

I suppose we need a title sniffer at FR though usually the ones who make remarks about a title being misleading attack the source, not the poster.

Of course this being an opinion article and not a news item makes me wonder about him. We do have Mods after all and if I’m not mistaken they take care of this kind of thing if out of line.

Whatever :-)

“That’s pretty strong words to a ten plus year FReeper”

You can’t honestly be stupid enough to believe that your sign on date entitles you to special treatment. Even if it did, it wouldn’t entitle you to spread false and misleading information to other freepers. That makes the site look bad and reduces its credibility. I think its better to post what people actually say and let the reader decide how to interpret it. That’s called being fair and accurate, something you apparently care nothing about.

You're a real piece of work when it comes to insults. You may be too ignorant to realize we have Mods at FR that monitor posts and threads. You may also be too ignorant to realize this piece was an opinion piece and not a news article.

BTW...Do yourself a favor and read up a little on Holder and his appointed thugs. It was pointed out by several people this article reflected what he and his appointees are about.

OK, Sniffer, I guess I’ll just have to explain it to you.

Any article posted on Free Republic is subject to posting guidelines established by Jim Robinson and enforced by the moderators.

The title or headline of an article cannot be altered at the whim of the poster, it must be posted as written at the original source, and a link to that source must be provided.

There are a number of other requirements for posting articles and you would do well to familiarize yourself with them. Doing so may keep you from berating others and looking foolish in the future.

Good Luck!

True!

I think between the two of us we've wasted enough time on Sniffer, he's either capable of understanding the advice we offered, or he's not.

To them, it’s all about the melanometrics. Specifically, Holder and his boss, Iman 0bama are Afrofascists . However, their malevolence is matched by their intemperance as well as the fact that they are both innumerate!
