Holder’s Racial Incitement

Wall Street Journal, May 31, 2012

The United States of America has a black President whose chief law enforcement officer, Attorney General Eric Holder, is also black. They have a lot of political power. So how are they using it? Well, one way is to assert to black audiences that voter ID laws are really attempts to disenfranchise black Americans. And liberals think Donald Trump’s birther fantasies are offensive?

“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,” Mr. Holder said Wednesday in a speech to the Council of Black Churches. Voter ID laws and white discrimination, he added, mean that “some of the achievements that defined the civil rights movement now hang in the balance.”


It’s demeaning to have to dignify this argument with facts, but here goes. Voter ID laws have been found by the courts not to be an undue burden under the Voting Rights Act and the Constitution. The landmark Supreme Court opinion, upholding an Indiana law in 2008, was written for a six-member majority by that noted right-winger, John Paul Stevens.

Black voter turnout increased in Georgia and Indiana after voter ID laws passed. Georgia began implementing its law requiring one of six forms of voter ID in 2007. According to data from Georgia Secretary of State Brian Kemp, the black vote increased by 42%, or 366,000 votes, in 2008 over 2004. The Latino vote grew by 140% or 25,000 votes in 2008, while the white vote increased by only 8% from four years earlier.

No doubt Mr. Obama’s presence on the ballot helped drive that turnout surge in 2008, but then the black vote in Georgia also increased by 44.2% during the midterm Congressional races of 2010 from 2006. The Hispanic vote grew by 66.5% in 2010 from four years earlier. {snip}

As for public opinion, an April 2012 Fox News survey found that a majority of Democrats (52%), Republicans (87%) and independents (72%) support voter ID laws. {snip}

All of this honors Mr. Holder too much because the real key to understanding his speech is to think lower. A May 4 story in the Washington Post got to the heart of the matter: “The number of black and Hispanic registered voters has fallen sharply since 2008, posing a serious challenge to the Obama campaign in an election that could turn on the participation of minority voters.”


{snip} For all of Mr. Obama’s attempts to portray Mitt Romney as out of touch, no one has suffered more in the Obama economy than minorities.

Which explains Mr. Holder’s racial incitement strategy. If Mr. Obama is going to win those swing states again, he needs another burst of minority turnout. If hope won’t get them to vote for Mr. Obama again, then how about fear?

Mr. Holder’s Council of Black Churches address is merely the latest of his election-year moves that charge racial discrimination of one kind or another. These include voting-rights lawsuits to block voter ID laws in Texas and South Carolina, intervention in immigration cases in Arizona, and various housing and lending discrimination suits. Whatever the legal merits of these cases, their sudden proliferation in an election year suggests a political motivation.

{snip} It’s worse than a shame that America’s first black Attorney General is using his considerable power to inflame racial antagonism.

  • Isn’t it APPARENT?
    BLACK FASCISM RUNS America now
    AND WHITES VOTE it into power

    • MekongDelta69

      “And [GUILT-RIDDEN, SELF-LOATHING, LEFTIST] whites vote it into power.”

      • Marc B.

         It’s not just about white guilt any more. Urbane cosmopolitanism has infected the mind of typical coastal and big-city liberals, and among their favorite ways to status jockey is to support affirmative action and other minority set-asides. They are under the assumption that working-class whites object to it only because they are low enough on the food chain for it to impact them, not because they are unfair laws and make whites second class citizens.

        Highly educated liberals consider themselves immune from the negative effects because they are among the elites who will rarely have to worry about minority competition in their elite professions. For those that do face some potential negative impacts from it, they consider themselves better than rank and file whites who object because the are showing altruism and a willingness to sacrifice their own advancement for the betterment of black and brown people. Either way, in their own way, it’s a sign of being a better person to support policies that go against the interests of their own race.     

    • libertarian1234

      Those are my sentiments EXACTLY.

      It isn’t just Holder and Obama.  The entire administration is pro-black and anti-white, and they’re in the open about it mostly.  Even the whites are self-hating and pro-black/non-white.

      The blond-haired, blue-eyed Elizabeth Warren has always claimed to be  a woman of color, falsely claiming Indian ancestry apparently because she hates being white so much.

      That the community organizer has a slight edge on being re-elected in spite of the racial aspect and the economic turmoil tells us how far this country has degenerated just since Bill Clinton has been in office.

      • mikejones91

        If I was part-indian, I would keep that secret.

        • The__Bobster

          Apparently, it’s a badge of honor today to be anything but White, even a savage who slaughtered your ancestors.

          • I know people with even minute amounts of Indian blood classifying themselves as Indian on job applications because they think it’ll help more than saying they’re White.

          • Bon, From the Land of Babble

            I can’t think of a profession where this wouldn’t be true — college admissions and  job promotions too.


  • For all of Mr. Obama’s attempts to portray Mitt Romney as out of touch,
    no one has suffered more in the Obama economy than minorities.

    Evidence, please?  Because I don’t believe it simply because it sounds like a high-minded “tolerant” bromide.  It might have made the writer feel good to write it, and the WSJ feel good to print it, and lamestream conservatism feel good to think it, but that doesn’t make it true.

    • Help us out then and provide evidence one way or the other.

  • Church_of_Jed

    How many White CEOs and Directors read this, felt the anger and anxiety, and then immediately signed of on the next corporate Diversity, Inclusion, Fairness, Equity, and Climate initiative?

    Everyone is waiting for someone else to take the first bold move, but notice that nobody is pressuring their Governor to do the right thing and defy the Fed’s Section 8 Diversity lawsuits. 

    • Jed, here’s a church opportunity for you:


      This fool is going to leave his wife and his congregation to walk across the country to protest black crime.  This means that in the time he’s done, that church will be without a preacher.  Maybe we can call on Rev. DeValleyism to fill in?

      • Church_of_Jed

        We harbor strongly biased suspicions that he will be the first to use the Avoid the Ghetto app.

      • Formerly_Known_as_Whiteplight

        I saw this guy on the news this morning.  If a white man and his followers struck out on a similar walk, protesting the continued racist attacks against whites, how far do you guess he and his group would get?  Pelted with produce, then rocks and finally shot dead.  Anyone want to make bets on how many miles? Take this brief exam;

        A. One mile
        B.  Five miles
        C.  Ten Miles
        D.  One hundred miles
        E.  None of the above, the idea would be shot down before it could be enacted.

        The correct answer is E.  Congratulations on your high social IQ!

  • Celestial_Time

    How in the world is something called the Council of Black Churches able to extend a podium to someone in the government without it raising eyebrows? ** rhetorical question **

  • No matter how much these minorities may be suffering now, due to in part the global economic recession thanks to greedy banks, crazy liberals and pandering Neo-cons trying to hand the American dream over to them on a “no payment down” silver platter (when they were obviously not worthy of such a gesture).They will proportionally still vote for Hussein in record numbers (if they can be bothered to vote at all), because they are encouraged, and actively practice the type of positive tribal racism, that we Whites would be lynched for (the modern equivalent), for even thinking about in our dreams.   
    Our racism is always negative, where minority racism is always positive.

    • Bon, From the Land of Babble

      There WILL come a day of reckoning for blacks and Hispanics when Whites are no longer around to load up their EBT cards and pay for their living expenses cradle-to-grave.  Whites are the only ones who are made to sacrifice their own children and wealth on the alter of diversity so blacks and Hispanics can live a middle-class lifestyle paid for by Whites.

      I cannot think of another race/ethnic/or religious group that is willing to support blacks instead of their own or tolerate black threats — any/all riots will be put down immediately with extreme prejudice.  Any attacks against women and children will be met with 10X the violence in retaliation.  It would not surprise me if blacks were eventually purged from the North American continent.

      Don’t worry, there will be cosmic justice.  The universe has a strange way of eventually righting itself.  

      I just hope we Whites are around to see those who deserve it get their just rewards for what they’ve done to us.


      • “Cosmic justice?”  LOL

        • Bon, From the Land of Babble

          Cosmic Justice:

          Yes.  The kind Mother Nature doles out.  Mother Nature doesn’t believe in “social justice” or man-made, made-up, unnatural laws or beliefs, only natural laws, the type the Founding Fathers believed in.
          All people are NOT created equal with equal intelligence, potential, or capacity to achieve equally, IOW:  The impossible will never be achieved (a “level” playing field, closing of the achievement gap, a peaceful multi-culti society, diversity as a strength, bringing “democracy” to people who neither want it nor understand it).  We have an in the U.S. now is an artificial system, unsustainable, based on LIES.Striving to achieve this impossible goal wastes precious resources and has had devastating human costs and social dangers.  Eventually, the entire system of lies will collapse as it did in the old Soviet Union, and is happening here.  
          Whites WILL at some point soon realize what is happening to them, that their homelands are being systematically handed over to hostile non-Whites and that they and their children WILL be lorded over by murderous people who “don’t look like them” in perpetuity.  I don’t know what it will finally take, but it will happen (Whites waking up) — that gun stores are being cleaned out indicates that the White population is finally getting a hint as to what to come and that the government is their main enemy.   The Internet has helped greatly in this awakening.
          Mother Nature is a b**ch, she doesn’t play “fair” and never has; she favors the strong and most intelligent and this is how it’s been since the dawn of man.    
          How long do you think blacks and Hispanics, who can’t even feed their own families without White largesse will last when the EBT cards stop working?Bon

  • I hope Eric Holder is right that blacks are too stupid and lazy to get IDs, as the only people that dont normally carry ID are felons and those with warrants out for their arrest

    • I assume that driver’s licenses qualify as an acceptable form of voter ID.  It seems reasonable to assume that a pretty high percentage of voter eligible black people will have either a driver’s license or one of the other five qualifiers.  It’s the actual registration that’s a problem not the day of the election, assuming a precinct keeps proper records.

    • Most people who don’t carry ID’s are people with something to hide.

  • IKantunderstand

    Holder, yeah, right. He was born in Barbados, you know, the same country that “gifted”  us with Rihanna. Who, by the way,  complains she was shabbily treated in her native country for being “White”. Wow, Holder is lighter than Rihanna. Do ya think he might be getting off on being a black man with a whole lot of power against real Whites? Because here the one drop rules. Or in Elizabeth Warren’s case, 1/32 of a drop. 

  • APaige

    Well you need an ID to drive…buy alcohol…some to see a movie…fly in a plane…rent anything…get a library card…etc, etc, but to produce an ID to vote is such a burden that it is called racist and a violation of Federal law?

    • You gotta produce  a TICKET to see a bassetball game! You ever hear blacketty-blacks wiff a ticket to da NBA sticking up for “undocumented niggazz” to come in and watch the game???

  • Shawn_thefemale

    There are just some people whom karma should take care of sooner rather than later.

    • Formerly_Known_as_Whiteplight

       This is one reason (and a good one) why I am not superstitious or religious; I recognize that some things never get done unless you do them yourselves.

  • You would think the top law enforcement officer of the US would do everything in his power to make sure our elections are on the up and up and free from the hint of any fraud. Not this guy.

  • ncpride

    I don’t know why anyone even bothers to complain about this clown anymore. After all he has said and done, any White AG would have been tossed long ago, but not this guy. No one in congress has made any real effort to get him thrown out, they simply don’t have the spine to do it, so they continue to let him run amok. Just put up or shut up.

    • alastairabbacle

      True White racism: allowing non-whites to run amok, allowing then to behave as savages, rather than civilizing them now that they are here.
      True White racism is allowing the worst elements of a race to proliferate, rewarding corrupt behavior, and discouraging legal self-defense against savages.

      We need to return to a meritocracy, with indiduals seen for who they are.
      We need to return to the idea of freedom of association, thr idea that two different kinds of people may want to live an work apart.

      The insane ideas of “gender equality” and “race equality” are only able to be hoisted upon the luxuries of a degenerating, debtabolic empire.
      Lean times give nobody thought to waste time on things that make people feel good, but make the country less efficient.

      Simple, common-sense ways of doing things are called insane, “hateful”, and shut out in today’s America?

      How about people live and work with who they want to live and work with? Organize schools for THEIR children with THEIR taxe money how they want?

      How about the best worker, hardest worker, smartest worker, and the worker who will get along best in the company gets the job?
      This stuff would have been inarguable several decades ago.

      This is boneheaded stuff!!

  • megabob

    Racism is alive and well…..in this admin….in the main stream media….in the democrat party. Anyone who does not agree with Obama, Holder, or any black person who is a liberal democrat is to them a racist when the truth is the opposite. It is they who are the real racists.

    • Church_of_Jed

      Racism is the new badge of courage in the White community.

  • Bon, From the Land of Babble

    I used to think Mr. Janet Reno, killer of women and children, was the word AG ever — then I remembered!!  HA!  Holder was her number #2 man during Waco.

    Holder has to be one stone-cold America-hating Communist to stand up for the voting rights of the dead and illegal aliens.  He needs to FOAD.


    • Celestial_Time

       I makes perfect sense really—Holder wouldn’t be where he is without the dead, illegal, illegitimate, and subversives that put him in that position. He’s just paying it back.

    • xxxtonygunsxxx

       4 killed 8 shot monday baltimore including a subshop owner in his shop. (do i have to say the perps were all blacks or do we understand that by now?)

    • I used to think the same thing, Bon.  But I’ve decided that while they are both evil incarnate, Mr. Reno went about her fell deeds with a different methodology than Holder.

      Mr. Reno brought us the concept of using tanks, helicopter gunships, automatic weapons and fire against women and children.  I think that was probably Phase I, just to get the idea out there.  That it’s not only POSSIBLE, but PROBABLE.

      Holder doesn’t get his hands dirty that much.  What he does is let others do his wetwork while he covertly pulls the strings… then runs interference for them, making sure they are immune from prosecution.  Then he hides behind Obongo’s skirt when he is called on the carpet for his actions… This is Phase II.

      God knows what Phase III is going to be… there are rumors flying all over the place:  FEMA camps, color coding dissidents and protesters, drones used by LEO’s…

      I’m hoping that they are thinking the economy will hold out while they implement their plans… it won’t.  That’s our Ace in the hole… what I am counting on, rooting for, waiting on…

      The economy will gimp along for maybe another year, tops, before it gets pulled off of life support.  If things play out the way I hope, we can water the Tree of Liberty.

      • MikeofAges

         Good point. I have long said, if someone wanted to write the definitive book about Bill Clinton’ presidency, a good title would be “Clinton and the White Rebellion”. Any scholars out there, you can have it.

        Want to destroy the White population of America?  The one that created this country?

        1.  Move blacks into White neighborhoods and your White children’s schools via Section 8 housing and busing, knowing full well the result will be increased violence against Whites, especially White children.

        2.  Give lower performing, lower IQd, lower achieving blacks, full rides to college and then hand them  lucrative careers and promotions over more qualified Whites to (by design) limit White incomes.  Ignore lower black IQ, vilify and destroy those who point it out (James Watson).

        3.  Make Whites pay, via hellish taxation, for blacks to reproduce and live a middle class lifestyle, cradle to grave, without requiring anything from them in return — They don’t even have to THANK the White population who must limit their own families to pay for this abomination.

        4.  Allow blacks to assault, torture and murder White elderly, men, women and children and cover it up or ignore it.  Any White who mentions this call a racist Nazis who deserves to have his career destroyed.

        5.  Glorify scant black achievement, history and black-specfic holidays throughout the public schools — at the same time push the idea that ALL and ANY black failure, incarcerations, low test scores — are solely due to intractable, inherent, White racism.  In the media, present blacks as virile, intelligent, wise and knowledgable and Whites as losers, wimps and fools — or inherently racist and violent —  in need of remediation by blacks.

        IOW, dehumanize Whites, make them evil vermin deserving nothing but eradication.

        This is what the NWO Amerikkan government is doing to Native Born White Americans along with ceding out living space and treasure to non-Whites — and it is GENOCIDE.  

        Anyone who says otherwise is wrong and hasn’t been paying attention.

          PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – A home invasion and robbery that happened in Northeast Philadelphia Monday afternoon is under investigation.

          It happened at about 3:30 p.m. on the 3000 block of Vista Street in Mayfair. Authorities say a black man in his thirties knocked on the door of the home, asked for directions and then forced his way inside the home of 81-year-old John and Jane Lesher.

          “He was just asking for directions and then he forced his way into the kitchen. He pulled my necklace and he took all of my rings off,” said Jane.

          • Bon, From the Land of Babble

            She’s extremely lucky that’s all he did.

            85 year old Nancy Strait and her 90-year old husband weren’t so lucky.

            Time to start installing “Ghetto Gates” like we have in Southern California. Mine has two locks and is bolted into the frame of the house.


        • Church_of_Jed

          Have you noticed the accolades that are given to blacks when they stay out of trouble?

          “Shenequia is just an outstanding leader with a great future ahead of her.”

          When do we ever hear that about Whites anymore?

          “We can’t say that William is an outstanding leader, because we don’t want to promote White privilege when we should be doing more to foster Diversity leadership.”

        • ed91

           6.  Fill the government with blacks.

  • Celestial_Time

    Smart people, people who have experienced the world a little, people that have actually had to deal with black people as a group, and all other people who value civility and common sense DO NOT put black people in charge of ANYTHING.

    White people should always remember a few things:

    – You want to ruin your business? Cater to the black population.
    – You want to ruin your neighborhood? Move black people in.
    – You want to increase strife and decrease the safety of you and your family? Hang around more black people.
    – You want to ruin your city? Move black people in.

    A black person in charge of something almost always coincides with a perpetual state of decline. People with common sense and the ability to see through idealistic dogmas just don’t veer away from these golden rules.

  • megabob

    And now Holder is going to Wisconsin to check on voter fraud? I suppose that means he will bus a lot of black panthers down there with him to ENSURE voter fraud.

  • newscomments70

    I’m surprised that the mainstream media printed this, but not of the content. If Mitt Romney wins the election, this should be the time when we ban together and voraciously fight for our civil rights. Romney is no prize, but at least we will have ousted an racist minority for a short time. We need to constantly pressure our legislators to end third world immigration, and end black (and brown) on white crime,  by whatever means necessary. Protecting the borders, abolishing affirmative action and Section 8 housing will be a start. We also need to have more children. Confront white liberals whenever possible, verbally of course. Boycott the celebrity liberals and tell them why.  Be cautious if you even disagree with a non-white liberal, as they might physically attack you. If several million of us march to Washington, that would help as well. Put your beers down and turn off the TV. It’s time to take our country back. 

    • Celestial_Time

      “If Mitt Romney wins the election” isn’t going to make White people come together more than the idea(now a reality) of an incompetent black man winning the presidency.

      I pretty much agree with what you’re saying, but I don’t really want some modern, gregarious concept known as Civil Rights. There’s really nothing civil about black people living amongst White people; hence, there can be no civil rights given to people of honor and integrity who have to try and reason with other people who have no honor or integrity.

    • Couldn’t have said it better myself.

  • Remember, the Jews voted overwhelmingly for Hitler in 1932 because they thought he would bring peace to the country, and you see what happened to them,even though Mien Kemp was widely published. I believe that we are seeing similarities here. I believe that if Romney starts to pull away in the polls that suggestions and then outright threats of race riots will be uttered.Remember that James Carville said on Meet the Press in 08 ,that ” there will be all sorts of trouble out there if Obama doesn’t win”.

  • I could easily think of a scenario where it was considered “racist” to expect blacks not to have the kinds of identifications, papers, and wherewithal to register that people of other races have.

    With a lot of these issues of so-called “obvious” racism, you have to half-step for a moment and wait until the racial powers-that-be decide which side they want to declare to be “non-PC”.

    What’s the difference between flesh eating bacteria and Diversity?

    Flesh eating bacteria destroys White skin without the consent of its victim, where as Diversity destroys middle class White privilege with the active encouragement and funding from White privilege elites.

    “Loss of Whiteness is a crime against God’s angelic realm.”

    -Rev. Jed DeValleyism, “Diversity is a parasite that destroys everything we build,” 2004

  • MikeofAges

    You don’t remember the great purges of the 1970s, sponsored incidentally by the Nixon administration. Middle aged white men were removed wholesale as business units and academic departments were shut down entirely. Then the same entities were started up or replacement entities created staffed by women and minorities, sometimes along with some number of young white men. They didn’t call that guy Tricky Dick for nothing.

    Motive? Honestly I don’t know for sure. Possibly he wanted to curry the favor of the Soviets and the Red Chinese and thought advancing the interest of leftist elements in American society would be a means of doing so. He seems to have believed that the diplomatic “breakthroughs” he negotiated with the communists would cement his legacy.

  • The statement I made about the Jews voting for Hitler in 1932 is what I saw on the History Channel not Glen Beck. Believe you me, I was stunned when I saw the show!

  •  He’s marching against black crime, but he’s also marching to hustle money to build a community center, which will breed and incubate black crime.

    Really, “Woodlawn Community Center” will be nothing more than a cornucopia of sinecures for his relatives.
