Eric Holder’s Parting Shot: It’s Too Hard to Bring Civil Rights Cases

Mike Allen, Politico, February 27, 2015

Attorney General Eric Holder plans to push, during his final weeks in office, a new standard of proof for civil-rights offenses, saying in an exit interview with POLITICO that such a change would make the federal government “a better backstop” against discrimination in cases like Ferguson and Trayvon Martin.

In a lengthy discussion ranging from his own exposure to the civil rights movement of the ’60s to today’s controversies surrounding the shootings of Trayvon Martin and Michael Brown, Holder also acknowledged that he felt some of his own struggles with Republicans in Congress during his six years in office were driven partly by race.

“There have been times when I thought that’s at least a piece of it,” Holder said, adding that “I think that the primary motivator has probably been political in nature . . . [but] you can’t let it deflect you from . . . your eyes on the prize.”

“I think some serious consideration needs to be given to the standard of proof that has to be met before federal involvement is appropriate, and that’s something that I am going to be talking about before I leave office,” Holder, 64, said.

{snip}

The Justice Department announced Tuesday that the Martin investigation had been closed, with “insufficient evidence to pursue federal criminal civil rights charges” against George Zimmerman, the neighborhood watch coordinator who shot the unarmed black teenager to death back in 2012.

Asked if the bar for federal involvement in the civil rights offenses is too high for federal prosecutors to make cases in shootings like those of Martin and Brown, Holder suggested it was.

“I think that if we adjust those standards, we can make the federal government a better backstop–make us more a part of the process in an appropriate way to reassure the American people that decisions are made by people who are really disinterested,” he said. “I think that if we make those adjustments, we will have that capacity.”

Lawyers in the Justice Department are looking into various possible reforms of civil rights law. Depending on their determination, it’s possible that Holder will simply argue about the need for a lower standard of proof rather than propose a specific legislative remedy. Possible changes include toughening hate-crimes laws, which were under consideration in the Martin case, and establishing a broader standard for what constitutes a “deprivation of rights under color of law,” the provision that could apply to the police shooting in Ferguson.

{snip}

But when he was asked what book he would recommend to a young person coming to Washington, like his 32-year-old aide Kevin Lewis, who started at the White House at age 26, Holder made a revealing choice: “The Autobiography of Malcolm X.”

{snip}

—Considering returning to his former law firm of Covington & Burling, where he was a litigation partner in Washington. He plans to remain involved in President Barack Obama’s My Brother’s Keeper, a mentoring and youth-empowerment program that Holder has said might be the president’s greatest legacy.

—Hoping to work with a university or think tank about setting up an Eric Holder Institute for Race and Justice. Such an organization could serve as a repository for his papers, and as a platform for him to continue his efforts on post-Ferguson issues–building trust between police and communities of color.

{snip}

Holder had only praise for Obama, the man who appointed him, disputing the claims of some African-American leaders that the first black president hasn’t really delivered for the black community: “You know, very often, empty barrels make the most noise. And I think there are any number of measures by which you can say that this presidency has been successful in a whole variety of ways, and especially when it comes to people of color.”

[Editor’s Note: Al Sharpton has also proposed a lower bar for federal civil rights cases.]

  • discrimination in cases like Ferguson and Trayvon Martin.

    Except for, well, the facts, and everything else.

    • Scott Rosen

      He wants to make it illegal to defend oneself from Africans.

      • It goes well beyond that; Holder wants blacks exempt from adverse consequences for anything they do. This isn’t just about Trayvon Martin deciding that he was some sort of “Teflon gangsta”, or Mike Brown deciding he was King Kong. Banks get strongarmed into writing mortgage loans to blacks with miserable credit, and the borrowers drop the ball? “File suit against the banks.” Little N’DeJeromeitavious gets suspended from “skoo”? “There’s something wrong with our schools.” Bongoleesha, LaTrine and LaTrodectia get fired from their waitress jobs because they spend each shift yakking on their “sail foams”? “Time for a federal shakedown of Denny’s.”

        • Laura Dilworth

          Denny’s was sued years ago. Staff allegedly didn’t want to serve blacks. Said they were poor tippers. Denny paid up

        All the communists want that: You should have read all the lies disseminated by the ST. LOUIS POST-DISPATCH when Missouri held a Referendum on a “Shall Issue” Concealed-Carry Law in the 1990s. (It’s why the HUAC named the POST as a “communist front”…

          • Earl P. Holt III

            Ferguson couldn’t find any black recruits under the age of 50 without a criminal record, so they were between a rock and a hard place when it came to “diversity” requirements…

      He was hoping he could walk into office and prosecute and convict any White man just for being White.

      • Jason Lewis

        That day is coming lol

    • Cheri Rodriguez

      So where does he go from here? A multi-million-dollar book deal? $50,000-a-pop speaking engagements? If he travels with a light / no security detail, he might end up being another unfortunate victim (fatality) of black-on-black crime.

      • IstvanIN

        One can hope.

      • Cindy

        “So where does he go from here?”
        I think Holder and Obama both want Al Sharpton’s job.
        They’ll live out the rest of their lives as race baiters.

      • spahnranch69 .

        I predict Holder will get a cushy, no-show job as a law professor at some elitist Ivy League school. He might also get a position as the Token Negro on some corporate board or in a “prestigious” think tank / policy institute.

        What a racist country America is.

      • bv

        God I hope so.

      • bv

        I hope so.

    • SentryattheGate

      It shows too in the book he recommends; “The Autobiography of Malcolm X.”

    • Laura Dilworth

      His replacement is just as bad

      • ElComadreja

        What did you expect?

        • Laura Dilworth

          The same

      • bv

        i wouldn’t expect otherwise.

        • Laura Dilworth

          Absolutely not

    • ElComadreja

      He can multiply that by a thousand and he might have a quarter of how much I hate “his people”.

  • WR_the_realist

    Holder also acknowledged that he felt some of his own struggles with
    Republicans in Congress during his six years in office were driven
    partly by race.

    Yes, the struggles were driven by race — Holder’s own racial animus towards whites. His proposed replacement is just as bad, so there’s nothing to cheer about.

    • What struggles with Republicans in Congress? That the poor baby had to go answer some questions from time to time? Yeah, Congress found him in contempt, but since Obama runs Federal law enforcement, that isn’t worth the paper it was printed on.

      • Max

        Why does Holder keep getting blamed for the stuff he does? That isn’t “social justice”!

    • De Doc

      Blacks like Holder get very sensitive over job performance issues. Any questions about his incompetence or gross mismanagement surely must have been evidence for racial animus.

      • Nancy

        I occasionally watch “Undercover Boss” if it happens to be on when I’m working on my computer. I noticed the head of Loehmann’s was confronting a black employee, who of course got all up in arms when he dared criticized her work performance. “Ain’ nobody tell ME I ain’ do MY job!”

        Of course, as soon as he switched gears and began telling her the things she was doing “right”, Latrina was suddenly all smiles.

        These people cannot take any sort of criticism.

      • spahnranch69 .

        A better word to describe Holder’s disposition is “uppity”.

    • TruthBeTold

      Holder has a chip on his shoulder. He thought he could walk into the DoJ and transform America.

      The fact that he didn’t get the perfect ‘White Racist’ he could make an example of must be eating him alive.

      His failure is proof that ‘racism’ isn’t the central issue of black crime.

      • “”Holder has a chip on his shoulder”

        Now there is the understatement of the year for American Renaissance!

      • spahnranch69 .

        Educated mulattoes like Erica Holder tend to be very uppity and have a big chip on their shoulder against Whitey.

        • ElComadreja

          His boss is the perfect example.

    • This guy has got so far in life just because of his race. It probably got him into law school and got him jobs with a prestigious law firm, but when Congress questions him, he goes into the old “Nobody’s seen the troubles I’ve seen” mode. Poo’ poo’ black victim.

  • BloodofAlbion75

    “It’s Too Hard to Bring Civil Rights Cases”

    As well it should be.

    • Yeah, wouldn’t it be better if we could just round up all those evil White people (including “white Hispanics”) and just denounce them at show trials and declare them “enemies of the people”? I am sure that is more what Obama, Holder, and company have in mind.

    • Race War Provisions

      Due to Black Privilege and Black Entitlement, Black Cibil Rights haven’t be hurt in a loooooong time. Keep Looking Holder, i’m sure you’ll find the golden fleece soon.

  • dd121

    He conducted his time in office based on his hatred of whites. Why shouldn’t a few criticize him for that?

  • walt

    It’s too hard because ACTUAL EVIDENCE is needed. He wants to be able to prosecute civil rights cases without any evidence whatsoever.

    • Nancy

      Like that black caller in to Herman Cain’s radio show:

      Caller: “People be criticizing Obama cuz he black! I don’t hear nobody ever call Bush unpatriotic.”

      Cain: (Plays a recording of OBAMA calling Bush ‘unpatriotic”). “Well, sir, there you go…direct evidence disproving your allegations.”

      Caller: (Sputter and stammer) “But…but…you KNOW, that deep down in yo’ heart, dat people be rayciss fo’ callin’ Obama names like dat!”

      The “burden of proof” for hate crimes will be similar. Regardless of the facts or evidence in a case, so long as you have some negro somewhere insisting, “Yeah, but…but…dat don’t matter, cuz deep down in yo’ heart, you KNOW dat guy be rayciss,” that’s all it will take to bring charges against someone.

      • walt

        That’s all the evidence a negro ever needs. Precisely why they should never be allowed to serve as jurors, testify in court, or hold any public office.

        • I’d add own real property, operate motor vehicles, vote or possess firearms to your list.

          • The Old South had it so right. The older I get, the more I realize how right they were.

          • Cheri Rodriguez

            Dogs too. In saner times, slaves and even free blacks were prohibited from owning them (see Michael Vick, Pit Bulls, etc.).

          • walt

            Agreed x1000. The most forlorn creature on earth is a negro’s dog

          • Nancy

            You can say that again! One of the few Negroes in our neighborhood keeps getting Animal Control called on him, for that poor matted-up dog he keeps tied to a tree in his back yard. It’s heartbreaking…

            In the book Negroes in Negroland, there’s an account of some missionaries who donated a donkey to an African tribe to help with doing manual labor: hauling things, helping with crops, etc. The missionaries came back a month later to see how the tribe was progressing with the extra help, and wouldn’t you know, they were doing things EXACTLY the way they’d always done them (carrying loads on their heads instead of utilizing the donkey, etc.) The poor animal was standing off to the side, all skin and bones because nobody wanted to “waste” any food by feeding it.

          • spahnranch69 .

            Negroes are not American citizens. Jews and Mohammedans should also be excluded from enjoying that privilege as well.

        • spahnranch69 .

          Negroes should never be allowed to own dogs, either.

      • bilderbuster

        I wish Whites were only a fraction as racist as Blacks believe we are.

        • John Smith

          Every day Obama is in office desecrating the Constitution, I get more so.

      • Who was that caller? Quick, we are looking for some new attorneys to hire at the Justice Department and that man sounds qualified!

      • JBUB

        Facts what are those? It’s all about people getting their feelings hurt.

    • Max

      Blacks harmed in any peceived way anywhere is prima-facie evidence of white racism. What more should a black “justus” dept. need?

    • Blacks by nature, don’t like logic, and hence the concept of “actual evidence.” That is foreign to the African mind. It is more about feelings and emotions for them.

  • TruthBeTold

    Holder is angry that he couldn’t find a way to prosecute Whites for being White.

  • notaliberal

    Sounds like his “rules” render guilty any white person who uses force, lethal or otherwise, to defend themselves from the violent black savages who are his people. The facts of the case will take a back seat to whether you vote Republican or told a black joke five years before the incident.

  • Frank_DeScushin

    “Holder also acknowledged that he felt some of his own struggles with
    Republicans in Congress during his six years in office were driven
    partly by race.”

    And what percentage of your actions and positions as Attorney General were partly or wholly driven by race, Mr. Holder?

    • IstvanIN

      All?

    • You questioned Holder’s motives? That makes YOU a racist! See, they can play the race card, but it doesn’t work for us.

  • badbox27

    Make no mistake about it, Eric Holder would lock up or genocide the entire White race if he could.

    • Samuel Hathaway

      Would that also include Obama’s little b**ch, boy, Josh Earnest?

      • badbox27

        If he’s White then yes it would include him. It would also include Obama’s mother, White babies, the elderly, and any White liberal friends he has. He hates all of us, no exceptions.

        • In his world, yes. The Whites who at first sided against White people, would just be disposed of as “useful idiots.”

          • The main problem with being a “useful idiot” is the quick expiry date one acquires after one is no longer considered useful.

        • spahnranch69 .

          I think Barry Soetero’s mother was a Jewess. Strange how we know virtually nothing about the “President” of the US or his weird family.

  • GB101

    the President of the United States is not charged with the job of delivering for the black community. It is appalling that the Attorney General of the United States would discuss the president’s job in these terms. Appalling but not unexpected. Think for a moment what would happen if someone had asked George Bush’s attorney general if Bush had delivered for the white community and if the attorney general has said certainly he had delivered. This comment is probably repetitive.Everyone reading this article notices the same thing.

    • President Oogabooga is not President of the United States; he regards himself as President of Blackistan, with the current white inhabitants useful only as taxpayers who are expected to support an ever-increasing parasite load of “gibsmedat”-recipients.

    • What’s appalling is that your comment is not repetitive. We’ve become
      so conditioned to hearing this sort of thing day in and day out with the
      Obamanoids that we now accept it, take it as given, and no longer notice how glaringly it violates any conceivable standard of acceptable conduct by
      the Attorney General, the President of the United States, or even the local dogcatcher.

    • You are right, yes, but that is obvious. Blacks have not been held to the same standard as Whites for decades now. Of course a black elected official is allowed to say things a White would not be allowed to say. All par for the course, my friend.

  • Luca

    In the minds of sick, anti-White, Liberal racists like Obama and Holder, if a black person says their rights were violated, by golly, that should be sufficient evidence that a crime was committed. What are you going to do, accuse a black of being a liar? Anyone suggesting that is automatically a racist and violating negro rights. Case closed.

  • Vito Powers

    Since the Senate Judiciary Committee voted to send Loretta Lynch’s nomination to the Senate floor for confirmation, we can expect déjà vu all over again with a black Attorney General.

      Just another example of republicans double-crossing the white race.

        • dd121

          I don’t, but I have this fantasy that Republicans are going to do something that favors whites. They never do.

          • Spikeygrrl

            The GOPe are not my favorite folks on the planet either. I think they deliberately set out to torpedo the Tea Party, which for one brief, shining moment WAS the Third Way.

            However, in every election now, the TP may not field their own candidates but they do approve or disapprove of major-party candidates and ballot initiatives. Consider getting on their “mailing” list for your city/county/region.

            And it would be a HUGE error in judgment to disregard Sarah Palin. She has become quite the kingmaker in the last few cycles. Almost every candidate she endorsed or stumped for was elected. That she probably not throw her hat into the 2016 Presidential race is probably a good decision because she’s YOUNG yet. Immediately post-Soetoro is not the time to push ANOTHER outside-the-box candidacy!

            Gov. Palin is not retreating, she’s just reloading. 🙂

          • dd121

            The left has put a lot of effort into smearing Palin but she does have influence within the Republican party. Mostly, Republicans have been a disappointment but what are you gonna do?

    This is one of the oldest dodges in the book. You take any standard you don’t like and lower it to the level that you do. That becomes the now “normal”. To accomplish this “facts” become subjective instead of objective. Sort of a combination of Alice in Wonderland and George Orwell’s 1984. Much the same as our educational system.

    • Usually Much Calmer

      I said ‘jam every other day’. You can have jam tomorrow and jam yesterday, but you can never have jam today.

    • The problem with lowering standards for prosecutions is that it effectively kills the legal safety net that was created to protect the innocent. What one has then is arbitrary despotism.

      • Says the convicted felon….

        • There was a young (white) guy in Ft. Collins who was railroaded by a criminally-lazy police investigator for a murder he didn’t commit. He was finally released after about 12+ years. The county ended up paying him a huge amount of money. It’s pretty certain now that a well-known serial killer who was working the I-25 corridor between Wyoming and New Mexico had done it: bodies between Taos and (I think) Cheyenne.

  • RacialRay

    If Holder thinks its difficult to bring violation of civil rights charges against whites, he ought to try bringing such a case against a black.

  • serious123

    The standard of proof in civil cases is a preponderence of the evidence, or basically more likely than not. A lesser standard of proof would mean one was less likely to be guilty than guilty yet were still held responsible. What kind of madness is this.

    Make NO MISTAKE, Holder wants the AG to decide whether to prosecute based not upon facts, but based upon the ‘fact’ liberals like him ‘know’ racial hate crimes when he sees one.

    To Obama, Holder, media and self-loathing White liberals–facts mean nothing.

    Moreover, minorities can NEVER be prosecuted because it is reasonable that racial hate and violence is justified for supposed past sins.

After I was arrested in July 2000, the local press tried saying I was a member of Aryan Nations and the Ku Klux Klan. The media would treat the nation to sob-stories about the “undocumented family member” who was “confused” and “wandered into the wrong house” (by breaking through a window screen), and how the late critter “needed help”, but was “denied opportunity” by us wicked racists.

      Can’t your wife get a gun of her own despite your disability? I suppose there’s no issue with your owning a crossbow either?

      • Can’t have firearms or ammo in the house or vehicles, as it would be considered “constructive possession”. Crossbows are OK; I made three myself. One is a normal crossbow, and the other two are Belgian-style bullet-shooting crossbows, in which the bowstring (aircraft brake cable) travels down a slot machined through the sides of a steel barrel. I used thick-walled 10mm inside-diameter tubing for the barrels in order that I could use cheap, plentiful 3/8″ steel slingshot pellets as ammo. A rare-earth magnet in the breech of the barrel holds the pellet in place until shot, so these can be aimed downward without the pellets rolling out. The bows I made from truck suspension spring leaves. I based my designs on plans in the book “The Crossbow” by Sir Ralph Payne-Gallwey.

        There used to be a way for federal ex-cons to have their gun rights restored, but congress cut off funding for the necessary background checks over 20 years ago. My only chance is a Presidential Pardon.

    thats the trouble with civil rights, up till now everyone has them

    • Jeff

      I wouldn’t have as much an issue with civil rights legislation had it been accompanied by a corresponding civil responsibility rider. Perhaps that if you’re in the act of committing a felony against another person, then any civil rights protection you enjoyed is forfeit.

      What really sets my teeth on edge is the outright denigration of the double jeopardy clause in the Constitution. I’m convinced we will eventually see “Human Rights” violations codified in a World Court. So if you manage to vindicate your self in State AND Federal court, have no fear, they will get you in the third level of government.

  • notyranny

    This is what you get with miscegenation. The White Hating Mulatto Scourge…..Thanks Mudsharks

  • Ed

    Holder isn’t a mulatto, or a recent one at least. His parents are light skinned Blacks of Caribbean heritage.

    • Who Me?

      His parents may both be “blacks” but just looking at him you can tell there is a very large admixture of white from some generations back. Probably several outcrosses to white. He is actually lighter in complexion than Obama, who is supposedly half African–with a baby daddy straight from the jungle. (Most Halfricans I’ve seen are also darker than Obama, too, but that’s the way they tell it.)
      Make no mistake, Holder is NOT stupid. That’s why he is so dangerous. If he was a coalie with an IQ of 85 we wouldn’t have to worry about him.

      • Since his origins are Caribbean, Holder likely also has a fair bit of Taino injun in his ancestry.

      • Race Heretic

        In Caribbean societies, often a mixed race class develops – mulattos marry mulattos and there are enough of them that they end up eventually forming their own community that is separate from both the black community. My understanding is that the departing attorney general hails from the mixed class of Barbados, so while not technically a mulatto, his DNA is fairly evely mixed nonetheless.

  • haroldcrews

    It’s easier to bring them when there are actual “civil rights” violations.

  • Important to note what Holder and his comrade Sharpton are calling for when they talk about this “standard of proof” being too high.

    Sharpton has been explicit. Here’s what he said

    “If you lower the threshold where you can say if the results are
    race-based, if in fact there is enough evidence whether there are
    witnesses or not.
    ….”

    So Sharpton wants the Feds to be able to swoop in, make their own determination of facts, without witnesses, and bring people to court for denying civil rights and convict them without witnesses.

    That means just about any crime that involves a victim who is in one of these protected classes could be determined by the Feds to involve violation of civil rights. At a minimum any of these crimes that involve a protected class victim and a white person could be subjected to investigation for possible civil rights violations.

    Imagine the effect that would have on policing in this country.

    WHAT would be the response of the press if say, a white A.G. were to recommend “The Autobiography of David Duke, someone in fact FAR less racist than “Mr. X”?

    I’d guess the screams would still be echoing and thousands of pages devoted to removal of the appointing president and a “major reform of the appointment process” with reparations to all offended minorities.

    A black can say anything and be lauded.

  • Stories like this make me get sick and tired of hearing about ISIS and “Jihadi John”; people like Obama, by allowing criminals to cross our borders by the thousands, and Eric Holder, by encouraging and empowering black criminals, have done far more damage than all these crazy jihadists could ever do. Always be suspicious when the news media appears to mouth a conservative position. You can be sure they are up to something and don’t have this country’s, and especially White peoples’ best interests at heart.

  • JohnEngelman

    Eric Holder’s argument seems to be that because blacks have a high crime rate, strict law enforcement is racist, because it discriminates against blacks. Perhaps he would like an affirmative action policy where black arrests, trials, and convictions are restricted to white levels.

    • The purpose of Western court systems is to prevent the vigilantism that would otherwise result. If our courts refuse to do their job, there are some people who would be happy to step in and do it for them.

    • MBlanc46

      I imagine that’s just what he wants.

  • flyingtiger

    Trying civil rights cases are hard? Not as hard as trying women for witchcraft. Like civil rights, witchcraft is an imaginary crime.

  • Pat Boyle

    Trayvon Martin was trying to beat a man to death when he was shot. So was Michael Brown. Did he miss those points?

    They must have lowered the standards for Affirmative Action admissions to law school even more that we suspected.

  • Earl P. Holt III

    Holder: “It’s too hard to bring civil rights cases.”

    Yes, especially when the facts don’t warrant them, you black bastard…

  • Race Heretic

    Hahaha, this brings me joy. Despite all the will and desire, the millions of dollars, the years of investigation, and generous civil rights legislation to allow it, these spiteful maniacs still can’t make a damn thing stick. Try prosecuting a real hate crime you jerk.

    • It would be better if those clowns were forced to play these games with their own money, instead of the taxpayers’.

    • spahnranch69 .

      Thousands of innocent Whites are raped, robbed and murdered in the US every year by savage Negro criminals simply because they were White. So if Miss Holder is looking for hate crimes he’ll find plenty of ’em being committed by “his people” against MY people.

  • ViktorNN

    It’s always about lowering standards when it comes to blacks.

  • MBlanc46

    The rule of law be racist.

    • Of course, and the whole, insane concept of “disparate impact” boils down to exactly your succinct statement.

    • RaySist27

      White people live by law, order, and civility. Black people live by the law of the jungle. That’s the problem as I see it.

      • Americaandthewestshouldbewhite

        Unfortunately when white people mingle with blacks, they too start acting like they are from the jungle. No wonder there was segregation.

      • MBlanc46

        I wouldn’t want to frame the issue in to stark a black/white way, but those are the poles around which the groups cluster.

        Anglo-Saxons haven’t lost that part of their genetic memories… they just control it.

        Check out “The Wrath of The Awakened Saxon” by Rudyard Kipling.

        ” It was not part of their blood,
        It came to them very late,
        With long arrears to make good,
        When the Saxon began to hate.”

        He knew.

        When critical mas mass been reached, there won’t be an anthropoid left in the Western Hemisphere.

      It is “be”, which in Ebonics is the “habitual be”.

      • MBlanc46

        Thank you. You are obviously a far better grammarian than I.

        • InAFreeCountry

          No, not at all! I just happened to run across this information in the past week.

  • Americaandthewestshouldbewhite

    Blacks always lie and when they are cornered, they pull the race card.

    • spahnranch69 .

      It’s part of their “culture”. And dat’s de troof.

  • spahnranch69 .

    It’s the light-skinned, educated mulattoes like Miss Holder who have the biggest chip on their shoulder.

  • spahnranch69 .

    “Civil rights” = special rights for non-Whites and homosexuals. Only White heterosexual gentiles are capable of violating the “civil rights” of others. So much for the rule of Constitutional law.

  • JBUB

    They seem to set the bar low for blacks in everything else. So this shouldn’t be a surprise. Also pretty telling that he think’s Obama’s greatest legacy is basically a big brother program. What was his second greatest legacy putting new wall paper up in the White House?

    • He sent a bronze bust of Winston Churchill back to Britain. That was not exactly classy.

      • InAFreeCountry

        Class is as class does. QED.

  • Ella

    It is called, “obey the law ” so that you don’t have the risk of getting arrested or shot.

  • Sloppo

    Zimbabwe already has all the legal improvements Mr. Holder desires to see. Perhaps he should move there to realize his dream right now.

  • Earl P. Holt III

    “You crackas wit dem pistels is cuttin inta our bidness…”

  • Americaandthewestshouldbewhite

    Eric Holder is just some negroid trash with an axe to grind. He would be better off being in Barbados.

  • ElComadreja

    Why do you think they’ve been seeding suburban communities with blacks and mestizos?

  • A Freespeechzone

    Let me blunt–Holder/Obama, the media and self-loathing liberals have no problem with minorities beating and killing anyone they want–to include law enforcement and to punish victims that invoke self-defense.

    They want Whites and law enforcement to just ‘lie down and die without protest’ because in the minds of these sub-humans, it is deserved.

    Fight back or die–it’s that simple; the war is on!

    A very dangerous man… The term “dangerous” here is an understatement, and the term “man” is an overstatement.

  • Laura Dilworth

    This law benefits minorities when they kill each other in self defense

      Count me in favor of CCW…and giving them free vodka !
