They say you can know a person by their friends. You can also know a person by their enemies.
The constant flow of criticism by elected officials and conservative talking heads about the United States Attorney General has been massive. This man has been called everything except a child of God:
- A criminal
Right-wing elected officials find endless ways to attack him –
- “Holder’s legacy has eroded more confidence in our legal system than any Attorney General before him.”
- He has been held in contempt by the House of Representatives.
- “Eric Holder is one of the biggest race-baiters in this entire country. He runs that DOJ (Department Of Justice) like the Black Panthers would.”
- “Race has been a shield and a sword” for both Holder and Obama.
- “AG Holder has obfuscated the truth & been the most partisan, partial, prejudiced & self-pitying AG in my lifetime”.
- “Holder’s tenure will be remembered for his refusal to uphold the law & the Constitution, disrespect for role of Congress & contempt for the institution.”
- “With Holder resigning, my hope is for an Attorney General who respects the rule of law instead of trying to find ways around it.”
- “Holder is sympathetic to terrorists.”
- “Holder is an accessory to murder.”
- “Holder is actively helping people commit voter fraud.”
- “Holder is inciting race riots.”
- “Holder has disdain for American government.”
- “Holder should be arrested and disbarred.”
Attorney General Holder has been tough enough to have weathered this storm. He grew up in New York City in the tumultuous 1960’s and graduated from the public Stuyvesant High School when it was still an all-male school.
My message to Eric Holder is thanks for being principled and persistent in spite of all the BS from people who want to go after you and your boss. They still haven’t recovered from election night 2008. You two are NOOP (“Negros-Out-Of-Place”). The racists never intended for you to get into your jobs or to succeed in them. Their rabid, passionate, contradictory and hair-brained attacks show that they have lost all semblance of reason. You have angered them because you are not “safe” and “reliable” like the few Negros who get their approval.
If those nuts liked you, you would be just another tool!
You Must Be Doing A Good Job!
