At a commencement speech at Morgan State University Eric Holder said:
“Vestiges of state-sanctioned discrimination continue to reverberate across the country even today.”
Eric Holder, Attorney General for the Department of Justice, has been under fire for a multitude of controversies since he took the office in 2008.
Whether it’s for the illegal trafficking of guns in the “Fast and Furious” operation or the recent emails that were unveiled by Judicial Watch that incriminate him and the DOJ in their persecution of conservative 501(c)(4) corporations, it’s clear that upholding the rule of law is not one of Holder’s concerns.
What really concerns Holder is the rampant and hidden racism he believes exists in American homes across the country.
In his commencement speech, Holder spoke to the recent events involving Cliven Bundy and Donald Sterling saying:
“These outbursts of bigotry, while deplorable, are not the true markers of the struggle that still must be waged, or the work that still needs to be done… the greatest threats are more subtle. They cut deeper. And their terrible impact endures long after the headlines have faded and obvious, ignorant expressions of hatred have been marginalized.”
Holder believes the true indicators of racism include the injustices the black community suffers under Voter ID laws, zero-tolerance school policies, and resistance to the Affordable Health Care act.
He leveled accusations against people who are resistant to Obama and his policies as being closet racists, saying these types of people are far more harmful to minority communities than anything else.
As Breitbart News noted:
“After comparing Obamacare to the Civil Rights Act of 1965, Holder suggested that those opposed to Obama’s ‘year of action’ are silently displaying their prejudices and suggested that ‘action’ is needed in voting rights, school discipline, and criminal justice reform. He blasted voter ID laws and ‘zero-tolerance school discipline practices’ that ‘affect black males at a rate three times higher than their white peers.’ The Justice Department’s school guideline reforms have been heavily criticized for effectively forcing schools to enact ‘de facto racial quotas’ in school discipline.”
What Holder means to say is that if you don’t like Obama… if you don’t agree with his policies… if you’re against the growth of government… want to see the rule of law upheld… support educational standards… and don’t want to see The Constitution shredded in front of your very eyes…
Well, then, you’re a racist.
