Radical Out, Radical In
President Obama is considering nominating his far-left labor secretary to replace outgoing Attorney General Eric Holder, according to media reports.
Illegal alien enabler Thomas Perez would not be an improvement over Holder, the scandal-plagued left-wing attorney general who has taken the Department of Justice to new lows of corruption and lawlessness. Perez, who previously ran the DoJ’s civil rights branch, would likely be a Holder clone or worse.
“Perez fits all the qualities that Eric Holder had: A lack of ethics, disrespect for the rule of the law, and placing ideology first,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton.
“Tom Perez was one of the reasons we need civil rights investigation at the civil rights division,” Fitton said. “He was the point man in terms of enforcing law in [a] racially biased manner.”
Perez hasn’t won friends outside of his radical circles during his time at the Labor Department.
“Perez has been charged with enforcing existing labor law. Unfortunately, he’s chosen only to enforce the law when it applies to employers, not to the Administration’s union allies,” according to Ryan Williams of Worker Center Watch. He continued:
While the politicization of federal agencies is running critique of the Obama administration, the Justice Department is the one agency that should remain above the fray of politics, and Perez has demonstrated that he is incapable of serving as a neutral arbiter of the law.
Patrick Semmens of the National Right to Work Foundation, said that he didn’t think Perez was capable of enforcing the law impartially.
“Tom Perez as Attorney General is a scary thought,” Semmens said. “If Perez is allowed to operate the Department of Justice the way he has run the Labor Department, he will consistently put the priorities of the president’s key political backers ahead of the rights of regular Americans.”
