Eric Holder, America’s new Attorney General, may prove to be the worst political pick since Caligula designated his horse, Incitatus, a Roman senator. The chief difference is that Caligula’s horse had far more class.
Disgraced Governor Rod Blagojevich’s choice to fill Barack Obama’s Illinois senate seat, Roland Burris, merits consideration as the supreme loser as well. Seems ol’ Roland had such contempt for the United States Senate that he thought nothing of perjuring himself to secure it.
Then, again, having contempt for the American people, as Eric Holder does, has to take precedence over contempt for the Senate so Holder should still get the prize and Burris should be designated as runner-up.
Speaking to a Justice Department group observing Black History Month, the new AG said, “Though this nation has proudly thought of itself as an ethnic melting pot, in things racial we have always been and continue to be, in too many ways, essentially a nation of cowards:” http://www.breitbart.com/article.php?id=D96E53483&show_article=1.
Confirmed 75-21 by an obsequious United States Senate, Holder went on to say that, “the workplace is largely integrated but Americans still self-segregate on the weekends and in their private lives.”
If my take is correct, the new AG feels that government dictates concerning whom companies employ is woefully inadequate. Holder is suggesting that people should be invited to golf outings, family bbq’s, christenings, and graduations simply because they are people, regardless of whether we would appreciate their presence.
Now isn’t that just special! Barely two weeks in office, Holder already shows his true colors by insulting the courage of the American people and suggesting, just suggesting, mind you, that Americans should also integrate their private lives.
Personally, I have had Black people as welcomed guests in my home. However, the thought of a modern replication of Orwell’s Big Brother dictating my invitees is blood-curdling.
Holder went on to say, “If we’re going to ever make progress, we’re going to have to have the guts, we have to have the determination, to be honest with each other. It also means we have to be able to accept criticism where that is justified.”
Eric Holder never mentioned either Blacks or Whites in his speech but the import was as obvious as his boss’s efforts to destroy our moral values and our capitalistic economy which has effected the greatest standard of living in the history of the planet. Both Obama and Holder are in process of gutting our most basic freedoms and insidiously assigning blame to us White devils.
Trust me, this whole mess will get a whole lot worse before it gets even a smidge better four years from now. Problem is, by 2012, we may not recognize the America we once knew.
Why Obama chose Holder to be America’s first Black AG is fairly obvious: He would be America’s first Black AG. As for his qualifications, they are more disqualifications than qualifications, which didn’t bother even Republican senators a whit. He was confirmed by the Senate despite his history and, boy, did he have a history. Holder’s history of anti-Americanism undoubtedly will be eclipsed by his reign as attorney general.

Final thought: If Mr. Holder is inviting a free and open exchange of ideas on race, is he truly as open to that “honesty” and “criticism” as it applies to Blacks or should that honesty and criticism only be focused on Whites?
If this is a one-way tunnel, I would prefer a detour.
