Obama and Holder It’s a typical line of liberal “reasoning.”
If our “fearless leader” encounters opposition from his political opponents, it’s not because of his failed policies or his consistent disregard for the constitution.
Rather, it’s because the president is black.
At least that’s what Eric Holder thinks.
While speaking with ABC news Eric Holder said that much of the opposition he and his boss face is largely because of “racial animus.”
That’s right, if you disagree with the president, it isn’t because you see his legislation as being problematic for the proper governance of the republic, it’s actually because you’re racist.
In typical Eric Holder fashion, the attorney general has attempted to position the American public against the president based solely on the issue of race.
That’s why he said:
We’ve made lots of progress… I sit here as the first African-American attorney general, serving the first African-American president of the United States. And that has to show that we have made a great deal of progress.
But there’s still more we have to travel along this road so we get to the place that is consistent with our founding ideals.
As The Hill reported:
He also stood by his controversial comments made during Obama’s first year in office in which he said the U.S. was a “nation of cowards” when it comes to race.
“I wouldn’t walk away from that speech,” Holder said. “I think we are still a nation that is too afraid to confront racial issues,” rarely engaging “one another across the color line [to] talk about racial issues.”
What’s humorous (or perhaps tragic) is that the president and Holder are actually the ones who are hiding behind race and using it as a weapon.
By setting up the opposition as racist, they seek to malign and castigate anyone who opposes their policy.
In a world of heightened “PC-ism,” and with the advent of hyper-connectivity through social media, the administration is attempting to de-fang anyone that presents a legitimate threat to the president using nothing more than simple character attacks.
Calling someone a racist is a perfect way to de-legitimize political contenders.
And while the accusation may not have any basis in reality, it’s hard to beat the race card once it’s been played… especially if you’re not black.
