‘We, As A Nation, Have Failed’ Says Eric Holder
In a continuing whine about racism, the first lady, the president and now Eric Holder, three of the most privileged people in the world are stuck on being victims of racism. Totally ignoring the results of two Grand Juries who investigated both the Ferguson and New York cases, he acted as though two totally innocent men were gunned down and choked to death for no reason other than the color of their skin. No mention was made of the circumstances that brought about the actions taken by law enforcement.
Coming from Eric Holder, thought by many to be the most corrupt attorney general in history, the ‘never let a crisis go to waste’ narrative is transparent. The same man who not only looked the other way, but participated in targeting all forms of opposition with the weight of the federal government and is in contempt of Congress for his refusal to provide documents subpoenaed by investigatory bodies, is deflecting from his own failed record.
In a total fluff, softball interview, he was not asked a single question regarding his investigations into wrongdoing by a host of government agencies. Rather he and the host of the program used the time to further the story that blacks are victims of racism in every encounter with law enforcement. Much the same way that Michelle tried to promote her own victimization when she said she was asked to reach for an item on a shelf a white woman couldn’t reach. Of course it was because she was black… Shouldn’t everyone know she was the First Lady, not a commoner or just another person in a store?
Apparently asking him the status of the DOJ investigation into the IRS targeting would not have been appropriate in this interview. No questions were asked and no mention was made of the many cover-ups of wrongdoing by this administration.
Most of us are growing very weary of the whining coming from these privileged people.
Eric Holder lives in a different country than the rest of us. At least, that’s certainly what his recent comments seem to suggest.
The outgoing attorney general just made some puzzling remarks about Americans and acted as if our amazing progress on racism simply never happened.
Holder appeared on MSNBC’s “The Reid Report” to give his opinion on race relations in the country. “There is — there’s distrust that exists on both sides. There’s misunderstanding that exists on both sides,” he stated.
Holder then made comments that seemed to imply that most police officers are racists.
“We’re not at a stage yet where I can honestly say, you know, truthfully say that if you’re a person of color, you should not be concerned about any interaction that you have with the police in the same way that I can’t say to a police officer, you shouldn’t worry about what community you are being asked to operate in.”
The view that blacks and police officers are on opposing sides is odd, considering the fact that there are many good black cops. That comment might have made sense 50 years ago, but it seems like an odd statement after so much progress has been made.
Holder then made an even more puzzling remark.
“It means that we as a nation have failed,” Holder continue, according to Breitbart. “It’s as simple as that. We have failed.”
Did Eric Holder forget to look in the mirror that morning? He is, of course, a black man himself. As attorney general, he holds one of the most prestigious and powerful positions in America.
The president who selected Holder is also black. Regardless of their many flaws, both men have shattered the notion that African Americans cannot succeed.
