Eric Holder spoke to a gathering of the Conference of National Black Churches on Wednesday in Washington, D.C., where he told them that voting is a “sacred” right.
Wow, so much for separation of church and state.
Holder is worried that Obama’s support of same-sex marriage will result in Blacks staying home on election day. Therefore, he is using the the voter ID ruse to get them out to vote.
The argument that minorities cannot get photo ID’s is absurd and insulting to minorities unless they all know the goal is to allow illegals to vote. Then, and only then, does it make sense.
Eric Holder want illegals to vote. He wants Reverends to support him in getting the Black vote out no matter what their conscience tells them because he claims that “civil rights” hang in the balance.
The position of AG is supposed to be non-political, so much for that.
Holder said the following on Wednesday –
“In my travels across this country, I’ve heard a consistent drumbeat of concern from citizens, who – often for the first time in their lives – now have reason to believe that we are failing to live up to one of our nation’s most noble ideals,” Holder said in a speech before the Council of Black Churches. The threats of legal assaults and lingering discrimination, he added, means that “some of the achievements that defined the civil rights movement now hang in the balance.”
The only way civil rights hang in the balance is if voter fraud by minorities is now a civil right. Holder said he has more than 100 investigations on voter ID laws now.
CBC * Rep. Emanuel Cleaver introduced Eric Holder to the Conference on Wednesday.
The day before, Cleaver said –
“President Obama is going to get 95 percent of the [African American] vote. We want to let them (pastors) know that there is a theological responsibility to participate in the political process, at least in the Judeo-Christian tradition.”
Holder’s stump speech might not work. One pastor, Bishop Harry Jackson Jr. of Baltimore, said that many will stay home because of the President’s decision on same-sex marriage.” Black voters will have a much more difficult time supporting Obama than they did in 2008,” Jackson recently told The Christian Post. “It may be the reason he loses in November.” Source: Christian Post
Eric Holder has a history of bad decisions. While he served under Bill Clinton, he pardoned Marc Rich and the FALN terrorists. He gave clemency to Weather Underground terrorists Susan Rosenberg and Linda Evans.
Rich was an international fugitive when his attorney, John Quinn, told Holder that he could be AG in a Gore administration – that’s been confirmed by Quinn and Holder. Holder subsequently pardoned rich and later said that he didn’t know who Marc Rich was.
His testimony to Congress on the case was evasive and misleading. He had serious memory problems during the questioning. Does it sound like Fast & Furious or what? Obviously he has some kind of dementia.
The Puerto Rican FALN terrorists bombed Frauncis Tavern in NYC killing 4 and injuring 60. Prior to this, they were responsible for 140 bombings that we know of. After Frauncis Tavern, other bombings totaled 6 dead and 80 injured. You can imagine how the victims’ families felt about Holder pardoning them.
When Holder was at Columbia University, he grew an Afro and joined the Black Students’ Organization which described themselves as “armed Black students.” They caused a lot of trouble and at one point, they seized the Dean’s lounge until he met their demands of naming it after Malcolm X.
Obama was also involved in this organization.
After college, Eric Holder lost the Afro and joined the firm of Covington and Burling. Years later, this firm tried 18 GITMO terrorists in a clear conflict of interest.
Then there was the Chiquita Banana controversy. The CEO’s of the company were financing terrorists and Holder refused to prosecute them even though the company was convicted.
His support for Bill Ayers’ Weather Underground became evident when he offered clemency to Rosenberg and Evans. Rosenberg helped Joanne Chesimard escape prison. Chesimard participated in a robbery that resulted in the death of a police officer.
Both Rosenberg and Evans were involved in the Capitol bombings. Read about it at Kolb Report, starting on p. 18.
Holder continues the same behavior today as seen in his handling of the Black Panthers case, the Trayvon Martin homicide, and Fast & Furious.
The point is that Holder is bizarre and hardly competent by any normal standard.
