Eric Holder Claims Racism Responsible for Fast and Furious Criticism

Eric Holder Claims Racism Responsible for Fast and Furious Criticism

Buried in a recent New York Times profile of Attorney General Eric Holder is this revealing tidbit:

But Mr. Holder contended that many of his other critics — not only elected Republicans but also a broader universe of conservative commentators and bloggers — were instead playing “Washington gotcha” games, portraying them as frequently “conflating things, conveniently leaving some stuff out, construing things to make it seem not quite what it was” to paint him and other department figures in the worst possible light.

Of that group of critics, Mr. Holder said he believed that a few — the “more extreme segment” — were motivated by animus against Mr. Obama and that he served as a stand-in for him. “This is a way to get at the president because of the way I can be identified with him,” he said, “both due to the nature of our relationship and, you know, the fact that we’re both African-American.”

So, to sum up, the Justice Department willing gives thousands of guns to Mexican criminal gangs; this results in the deaths of two U.S. law enforcement agents (one of whom, Jaime Zapata, was Hispanic) and dozens of Mexican nationals; the Justice Department stonewalls and misleads in the ensuing investigations; and now Eric Holder claims that criticism of his conduct is fueled by racism? Right.

And in related news, The Daily Caller reports the New York Times may be inadvertently riding to Holder’s defense:

Attorney General Eric Holder has once again done what nearly ALL Black politicians of the Democratic persuasion do when the tide turns, he has pulled out The Race Card. So, lets take a look at what a Black politician of the Conservative persuasion has to say about that.

West: Holder’s race card is the ‘last card in the deck’

Florida Republican Rep. Allen West told The Daily Caller on Monday that Attorney General Eric Holder’s use of the race card as a way to attack those who are criticizing him is “reprehensible.”

“I think this is absolutely the last card in the deck, and that shows how weak their ground is,” West said in a phone interview. “But, what that means is they want to make white individuals afraid of continuing to put the pressure on Eric Holder because they don’t want to be seen as racist, and that is something that we have got to move beyond.”

Holder had told The New York Times over the weekend, in a front page Sunday story, that he thinks those who are criticizing him have racial motivations to do so. Holder said some unspecified faction — what he refers to as the “more extreme segment” — is driven to criticize both him and President Barack Obama due to the color of their skin. Holder did not appear to elaborate on who he considered to make up the “more extreme segment.” (RELATED: NYT runs ‘Fast and Furious’ factual inaccuracy, favoring Holder)

“This is a way to get at the president because of the way I can be identified with him,” Holder said, according to the Times. “Both due to the nature of our relationship and, you know, the fact that we’re both African-American.” (RELATED: Justice Dept silent as Holder charges critics with racism)

And that my friends is how a true American Conservative sees this fraud in the Dept. of Justice. 

Allen West IS a Black man, but he doesn’t use that as a weapon or an excuse! West has done a great thing here by blasting Holder for throwing The Race Card. And as I have said on numerous occasions, the 1st one to throw The Race Card is usually the most racist one in the crowd.

By throwing The Race Card Eric Holder has shown his desperation and fear. Holder can feel the walls closing in on him and his band of Merry Men, and hopefully, Holder’s coming fall will also take down his mentor, Barack Hussein Obama.

I’m sure Holder will see my views as RACIST, you know, since he and Obama are almost Black, but their skin color has nothing to do with it. Their criminal acts are the only issue I have with either of them and the entire administration.

The mainstream media is either silent or offering excuses for Holder and company.

I don’t know how much more America can stand. Barack Obama can NOT be successfully impeached, not as long as the Democrats hold control of the U.S. Senate, but if Obama and his evil minions aren’t removed, poste haste, this nation may not survive until the next election cycle.

    And if ANY of this is true…

    Documents obtained by Salt Lake City attorney Jesse Trentadue in a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit show then Clinton Deputy Attorney General Eric Holder authorized members of the FBI to provide explosives to Oklahoma City bombing criminals Timothy McVeigh and Terry Nichols immediately prior to the April, 1995 bombing of the Alfred P. Murrah building.

    Holder had authorized the FBI to provide the explosives to McVeigh and Nichols in conjunction with a Clinton Administration undercover operation named PATCON, an acronym for “Patriot Conspiracy.” As Jesse Trentadue describes it, “PATCON was designed to infiltrate and incite… militia[s] and evangelical Christians to violence so that the Department of Justice could crush them.” (1)

    Both Waco and Ruby Ridge are now known to have been PATCON inspired, Department of Justice plots.

    Story Here:
    Holder was responsible for 168 deaths in the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing…and more

    The implications of this could bring charges against Bill Clinton for the PatCon Op just like Fast and Furious could bring down Obama…

    Looks to me like information is coming out of the woodwork regarding Holder and his ideas of how to use guns and explosives, and how to track them TO the users…

    It’s time to tighten the screws on the BATFE, DOJ and White House. Let them scream racism. Time to make them sweat. Am rooting for some prison time all around.

  3. Bunkerville says:

    Holder is down to his last card in the deck. The race card. This will create lots of angst.

  4. Bloviating Zeppelin says:

    If — IF the links between Holder and McVeigh are TRUE. . .

    Then there is a very SPECIAL place in HELL for our Racist Mr Holder.


  5. BobF says:

    There’s something about McVeigh that doesn’t make sense to me. McVeigh just blew up a federal building, killing over 100 people. He’s driving away from the scene with a loaded high capacity 9mm handgun next to him. He’s suddenly pulled over by a cop; he doesn’t know the reason and as far as he may know, they’re on to him and going to arrest him for the bombing. He just killed over 100 people and he doesn’t try to outrun the cop or even shoot it out with him. He’s a combat veteran who’s been awarded a Bronze Star so he’s most likely more capable with a gun than the cop. Why did he just sit there in the car and let the cop casually take him in? It doesn’t make sense to me

    • TexasFred says:

      There’s a lot about OKC that just doesn’t add up… Maybe Holder had a hand in it, much like Fast and Furious, who knows… It’s ALL got to come out, these hair-brained ideas from DOJ are getting a lot of Americans killed…

    The more that we know the worse it gets… These people need to be horsewhipped, tarred and feathered, then hung by the neck (slow hung, no drop) till they are dead…
