Eric Holder Just Proved, In His Own Words, Why He Should Butt Out Of The Ferguson Investigation

“I am the Attorney General of the United States, but I am also a black man.” With that revealing statement, as reported in USA Today. Eric Holder showed exactly why he should not be involved in any way with the racially charged Ferguson incident. Holder is, by his own admission, too emotionally invested in the racial aspects of this disturbing investigation.

As the nation’s chief law enforcement officer, the Attorney General of the United States should be completely impartial and unbiased. Yet this Attorney General — who has freely and proudly acknowledged that he is an “activist” — now clearly thrusts himself, personally and provocatively, into the Ferguson mess.

This excerpt from the article in USA Today, entitled “Holder’s Stop in Ferguson is Deeply Personal”, should be enough for any thinking person to call for Holder to disqualify and distance himself from the animosities in Ferguson:

“I am the Attorney General of the United States, but I am also a black man,” Holder told Ferguson residents at a community meeting. “I can remember being stopped on the New Jersey turnpike on two occasions and accused of speeding. Pulled over. … ‘Let me search your car’ … Go through the trunk of my car, look under the seats and all this kind of stuff. I remember how humiliating that was and how angry I was and the impact it had on me.”

It is transparently ridiculous for Holder to bring his race-based prejudices into a situation that, in light of the heightened tensions, calls for a squeaky clean, fair, and impartial administration of justice.

  1. Eric Holder belongs in Jail himself and no-where near this mess!

  2. Congressmen need to shorten their vacations and get back to D.C. and deal with O and EH once and for all. Need to put heat on both of them and fast!!!

  3. ITS FOR THE VERY REASONS THAT ERIC HOLDER SHOULD DISTANCE HIMSELF FROM THE FERGUSON FIASCO THAT HE CAN'T. LIKE HE SAID HE IS A BLACK MAN AND THIS IS PERSONAL.

  4. Edwardkoziol says:

    Eric Holder Obumholes flunkie is a as big of a racist as Sharpton and Jackson.So when this mother f—ker talks about justice you know he is lying through his big lips all he wants to do is hang this cop who shot the teddy bear.Holder should face charges if the republicans can take the presidency.He belongs in an orange jumpsuit .

  5. So what is wrong with him gong to Utah and getting involved with the killing of a young man by a police officer? Oh wait… he when to Furgusen Mo. not Utah where it was a black officer who shot an unarrmed white boy. Never mind.

  6. I'm the judge in this case and I've known the defendant his whole life,everything is wrong about him getting involved in this case.

  7. Holder is in the same category as Al Sharpton and Jessie Jackson: they only add fuel to the fire of situations.

  8. does the KKK come to mind

  9. MuslimLuvChrist says:

    You know that the corrupt holder will fudge the toxicology report!!!

  10. As a Christian man I take offense in Sharliton and Jackson having the word Reverend in front of their names, they are about as much for God as Adolf Hitler loved the Jews, totally a shame and they will answer for it when they stand in front of their creator, believe me The Lord says he will “Spew them from his mouth!”

  11. Concerned Montanan says:

    When Holder says "I am also a black man," he immediately puts this entire situation into a purely racial content, just what should be avoided. Forget the color of the faces, and look at what actually happened. As the FACTS, not the FACES, come into play, justice will be done. It is my belief that most of the citizens of Ferguson are willing to let justice prevail; it is the Al Sharptons and Eric Holders and other brought-in trouble-makers that are pushing this incident toward rioting and revolution to the point of martial law, which seems to be what our administration wants. "Never let a crisis go to waste," – remember?

  12. He has let his past distort his thinking for the present and is a full fledged racist if I ever saw one..He has no place as a high figure and messing with things that is none of his business.

    • Hi Gayle,
      That is so true of what you said.
      Obama should never had been elected in the first place he does NOT qualify to be our Leader and he is NOT a US citizen. He is a radical and the American people were dupe by this imposter, I am for a Black man for President such as Dr. Ben Carson, not this fraud that we are stuck with.

Speak Your Mind
