Holder Urges Young People to Consider Careers at Justice Department

Susan Jones, CNS News, April 24, 2014

Students from a Catholic school in San Francisco were in the audience Wednesday when Attorney General Eric Holder gave a speech on diversity and inclusion, and urged young people to “consider careers . . . here at the United States Department of Justice.”


After welcoming the St. Ignatius students, Holder explained how the Justice Department “defends the values of diversity and inclusion.” (His first example was “voting restrictions.”)

Holder also urged young people of diverse backgrounds, including “new immigrants,” to consider working at the Justice Department:

“Now, statistics show that in recent years, women and people of color have made up a greater percentage of both licensed lawyers and law students. Progress remains too often slow, and the law continues to lag behind many other fields. So we need to ensure that the coming decades witness an uptick in the numbers of women, people with disabilities, people of color, and new immigrants finding productive avenues into this profession and others across the American workforce.”


Holder then reminded his audience that just because he and President Obama are black men in powerful positions, the country’s “long struggle to overcome disparity and discrimination” has not ended.

“Now, I know it may be tempting–it may be tempting for some, when they look at the accomplished professionals in this room or the lawyer who works in the Oval Office or consider the fact that I have the privilege of serving as the attorney general of the United States, to feel that this country’s long struggle to overcome disparity and discrimination has ended. But as Justice Sonia Sotomayor said just yesterday in her courageous and very personal dissent in the Michigan college admissions case, we ought not, and I quote, ‘wish away rather than confront the racial inequality that exists in our society. The way to stop discrimination on the basis of race is to speak openly and candidly on the subject of race,’ end quote.”

Holder continued: “The reality is that, as you all know, and as many of you see in your work each day, this great country still has a great way to go before our founding promise of equal justice and equal opportunity is fully realized, and progress will require not just open and honest dialogue, but a willingness to confront these difficult issues through principled action to address and to remediate the lingering impacts of racial discrimination.”

Holder also touted his own efforts to “foster increased diversity” at the Justice Department.

“Together, we have developed initiatives like the Diversity and Inclusion Dialogue Program, a six-month pilot program under which five DOJ components . . . will convene discussions related to diversity in our workforce. They will address topics like self-identity and privilege, gender and generational differences, race and sexual orientation.”

  • Holder was going to give a speech in Oklahoma, but cancelled at the last minute. That’s because he was going to be arrested by Oklahoma authorities. That’s the way to deal with this criminal. The rest of the country should follow Oklahoma’s example. ARREST HIM!

    • Anon

      That’s interesting….why were Oklahoma’s authorities going to arrest him. You realize that Holder is guilty not only of what he did during Fast and Furious but of a similar, far more serious crime he committed years ago. You might remember the incident. It was called “The Oklahoma City Bombing”. Timothy McVeigh would not have been able to pull it off without a source of the extremely hard to get, advanced explosive, C4. Where, pray tell, did he obtain it.
      The answer is an incompetent FBI agent named……Eric Holder. Who, in an amazing level of stupidity, even for a negro, decided it would be a good idea to run a sting, and hand over a large amount of C4 to some would be terrorists and then arrest them. And then, lalalalala, decided it was not so important to keep track of them. The rest is literally history. Interestingly enough, Holder literally got down on his knees and BEGGED McVeigh to tell him where the, ummmm, other half of the C4 he gave him was. Even offered him immunity from prosecution. At the time, the feds were terrified (and rightly so), that others working with McVeigh would set off another explosive like this. Luckily, far more competent agents found the C4 and McVeigh was put to death, not so much for what he did but to shut him up about the whole thing. His cohorts were allowed to escape and are at large to this day because the FBI choose to let them go rather than draw attention to their guilt, and specifically Holder’s guilt in the matter.
      One would think that would have been the end of Holder’s career…but you know, affirmative action and all that. Law enforcement in this nation currently reflects the quality of officer Holder is. And the fact that no one brings up this incredible incident is a testament to just how controlled our media is. Oh, this stuff is out in the open and a matter of public record. Just, mysteriously not news. Not important enough to be on TV, the subject of newspaper articles etc.
      But wouldn’t it be interesting if Oklahoma authorities had not forgotten the incident and were looking for a chance to remind Holder he is a criminal.

        He’s guilty for the hate speech he’s been carrying around in his wallet since 1971. He lied under oath when taking the AG job:

        “Blackness is another issue entirely apart from class in America. No matter how affluent, educated and mobile [a black person] becomes, his race defines him more particularly than anything else. Black people have a common cause that requires attending to, and this cause does not allow for the rigid class separation that is the luxury of American whites. There is a sense in which every black man is as far from liberation as the weakest one if his weakness is attributable to racial injustice.”


        • Beloved Comrade

          Holder also stated in hearings before a Senate Judiciary Committee that hate crime laws don’t protect whites.
          Holder repeatedly claimed that hate crime laws are designed to protect only groups that were targeted for violence on a “historic basis,” such as African-Americans, Hispanics, Jews, and gays.

          Where does Holder get off saying which laws protect which groups? It proves he is an anti-White who ignores American law and looks the other way as blacks commit atrocities against Whites.

          • AndrewInterrupted

            He has that card in his wallet memorized, apparently.

        • Annabelle Pettyjohn

          We whites must start acting as a group. That is our only hope. We throw our white brothers and sisters under the train. The blacks have developed the Jewish strategies. As David Horowitz said at Duke University to the black female heckler, “how can you treat me, a Jew, like this. Without the Jews the blacks would have nothing”.

          • AndrewInterrupted

            Good point–and welcome, Annabelle… <;-D

      • Beloved Comrade

        Compelling, and from what I know about Holder, true.

        Do you have a source you could link to?

        • Juggernaut3000

          I’d like to see a link for this information too.

          • tlk244182

            If you google Eric Holder+Tim McVeigh, there are numerous sites that have the story. How reliable it is, I’m not sophisticated enough to say.

  • Johnny Clay

    DOJ hires and selects blacks over whites for management positions, anyway.

  • D.B. Cooper

    I looked it up. The school is 62% white, but it is in San Francisco, known throughout the galaxy as a safe haven for known perverts, Q$&&rs, and fairies; and I wish I could remember what science fiction story I read that from!
    By the way, the original article has Disqus, so make your comments known over there too.

    • IstvanIN

      Is it really necessary to insult High School kids?

  • MekongDelta69

    Aww – how cute – Lil’ Eric Hold ‘Em Up Juniors

    I swear to God, these race-hustlers along with their guilt-ridden, self-loathing, spineless leftist ‘masters/slaves’ consider DIE-versity and inclusion as an absolute Jim Jones CULT.

    To them, there is NO higher power, nor anything more important.

    Not God, not talent, not IQ, not education, not experience, not morals, not ethics, not being civilized, not honor, not duty, not country, not ANYTHING.

    As long as you are NOT WHITE, you are a-b-s-o-l-u-t-e-l-y above ALL sentient and non-sentient beings or things; religion, philosophy, the time-space continuum – EVERYTHING which exists in this universe.

    Where is the Kool-Aid for them?

  • [Guest]

    In other words, “justice” varies depending upon who dispenses it. There’s people-of-color “justice,” there’s female “justice,” there’s recent-immigrant “justice,” there’s disabled “justice,” and so on and on.

    That’s a perverse approach, especially for an attorney general.

  • Dave4088

    I think the time is coming when the DOJ will only hire and be comprised of blacks, mestizos, Asians, Jews, Muslims and homosexuals. The only whites that will be considered are the lunatic lefty types who hate their own race with every fiber of their being.

    • Strike_Team

      Isn’t it like that already?

    • Anon

      Is that a bad thing? These people intend to make murder, rape and worse by blacks legal while making it a serious crime to hold “rayciss” beliefs. Which basically means law enforcement will stop doing anything legitimate and become only a tool of oppression against you. Which would you prefer, highly trained, intelligent, capable jack boots or lazy, incompetent, corrupt non-whites and weak, effeminate half men.
      Think about it.

      • tlk244182

        This will also, I think, tend to promote racial awareness among unconvinced Whites. The danger is in a slow, less perceptible decline. The faster our society collapses the better for us, which is why I will not vote for the Republican in the next national election.

    “Now, statistics show that in recent years, women and people of color

    I think we’ve reached the point of Diversity Madness. Diversity has become an end in itself, completely divorced from any considerations of practicality or necessity.

  • So the USDOJ is supposed to be the employment agency for every affirmative action lawyer in the country?

  • FozzieT

    Holder’s just doing his job to recruit “his people” into the Deep Government bureaucracy that rules over us regardless of which political party is in power.

  • B.E.L.

    No matter how much you give them, no matter how equal they become, no matter if you give the country over to them and enlsave all of the white race, they will still see themselves as down-trodden victims and white people as oppressors.

    I would spout the tired argument of separatism, but whats point, they would just follow us wherever we went. Why would an oppressed people want to follow and live with their oppressors?

  • Strike_Team

    Every time a non-white or Jewish person takes a racist stand against whites, does something self-serving that is deliberately calculated to hurt whites, it’s always referred to as “courageous”. Every – single – time. Holder referring to Sotomayor’s grand-standing re the “situation” in Michigan as “…courageous,” makes me want to puke.

    • Anon

      Jewish people are not white. I say that not as a white person judging them to be not white but as an observer noticing that they themselves, not only militantly reject the idea that they might be white but consider whites to be racial enemies. They say so, repeatedly, often, in print and have for most of recorded history. They actually made this a part of their religion. Read the Torah and it says bluntly that jews are not white and that even the best of whites should be killed. It actually says white people have no souls and whatever jews do to us is fair game because of that. No…not just a side comment, but every major jewish leader has made a point of this.

      • DenisetheCelt

        Thank you.

      • Strike_Team

        Yes, I know they’re not. I should have written “…Jews and other non-whites,” but I would hope you caught my drift. These people making anti-white remarks are all hailed as heroic, as if it takes courage to do exactly what the media will praise you for, what the people in charge are ordering be said. It’s a farce.

        Btw, here’s a link I posted in another thread;

        http://www – youtube – com/watch?v=7iSrGQ1cwxM

        Part of the routines used to reinforce to the “kids” what they are, and what they aren’t. Whether it’s a visit to the “homeland” or a trip to summer camp, this type of thing is hammered into them.

      • Raymond Kidwell

        Where does the Torah refer to “white” people?

        • tlk244182

          I believe he meant the Talmud.

    • Beloved Comrade

      Holder already said in front of a Congressional committee that hate crimes law specifically covers Jews but not Whites.

      • Strike_Team

        I remember watching video of that.

        Holder knows which side his bagel is buttered on. After all, who’s behind Obama? And Holder ostensibly works for Obama.

        It’s tragi-comedy. A hack like Holder would never, ever be anywhere near the position he is if this country were run by whites, and most everything were to be decided on merit. If this were the case today, you wouldn’t see Holder on the tube projecting hate for whites and generally making a fool of himself. You’d see Holder’s picture on the back of big city buses, encouraging people who’ve been in accidents to give him a call, because he can help them win Big Buck$.

  • American_cavalier

    Remember “The Young” and “youth” are code words in leftwing cookoo land for rampaging rioting criminal “persons of color”.

  • IstvanIN

    The new generation of lawyers to persecute Whites are being recruited now.

  • Easyrhino1

    Is this really in Holder’s job description?

  • Bon, From the Land of Babble

    Who’d a thunk there would ever be a worse AG than the completely inept Janet Reno?

    Lets look forward to the day… his racist *** is suited up in an orange jumpsuit!!

  • DennisDale

    It’s all getting quite sinister. I read in some critical race theory “scholarship” recently this particular turn of phrase: “…preparing whites for their new role [as a minority]…”, and saw it repeated in one form or another elsewhere. Maybe this is their next presumption, to be sitting us down to “prepare” us for our new “role”. Liberals really have no clue how much almost everyone but the Westerner views “justice” as the settling of scores.

  • MooTieFighter

    Al I hear is: less whites, less whites, less whites, less whites, etc…

  • fgbrunner3

    In my opinion, Eric Holder is on elf the worst attorney generals in history.

  • GB101

    But as Justice Sonia Sotomayor said just yesterday in her courageous and very personal dissent in the Michigan college admissions case,

    It was personal but in what sense was it courageous?

    Here is the definition of courage:

    cour·age [kur-ij, kuhr-] Show IPA



    the quality of mind or spirit that enables a person to face difficulty, danger, pain, etc., without fear;bravery.

    Let’s see. Did the decision cause her to face difficulty? Danger? Pain? Was she fearful of any adverse consequences whatsoever?

    The answers to these questions are clearly NO. Her job is not in jeopardy. There is not a remote chance of physical danger. No political consequences.

    Conservative pundits wrote editorials critical of her. If it takes courage for a person with a lifetime job and armed security to face that, the word courage has no meaning.
