What’s In Eric Holder’s Wallet? His Real Race Card

July 12th, 2013 - 5:35 am

This week, Judicial Watch released documents demonstrating that the Justice Department’s Community Relations Service was deeply entangled in New Black Panther-led rallies and protests in Sanford, Florida, against George Zimmerman. These are the same rallies during which the New Black Panthers called for a bounty on George Zimmerman, and released “dead or alive” posters. The New Black Panther leading the rallies was the same New Black Panther Eric Holder sprang free in the voter intimidation case in Philadelphia.

Michael Ledeen posted the most recent of hundreds of articles calling for Holder to resign — he’s “maxed out his race card,” the figurative saying goes. But is the use of “race card” really figurative when it comes to our attorney general? Sadly, no — Holder really does carry around a race card in his wallet.

And what the card says speaks to the whole nasty entanglement of the Department of Justice, Malik Zulu Shabazz of the New Black Panthers, and the Trayvon Martin affair.

You can read all about what’s in Eric Holder’s wallet in my book Injustice: Exposing the Racial Agenda of the Obama Justice Department(Regnery, 2011):

For much of his life, Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. carried around something peculiar. While most people keep cash, family photos, and credit cards in their wallets, Holder revealed to a reporter in 1996 that he keeps with him an old clipping of a quote from Harlem preacher Reverend Samuel D. Proctor. Holder put the clipping in his wallet in 1971, when he was studying history at Columbia University, and kept it in wallet after wallet over the ensuing decades.

What were Proctor’s words that Holder found so compelling?

“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.”

When asked to explain the passage, Holder replied, “It really says that … I am not the tall U.S. attorney, I am not the thin United States attorney. I am the black United States attorney. And he was saying that no matter how successful you are, there’s a common cause that bonds the black United States attorney with the black criminal or the black doctor with the black homeless person.

Has anyone ever asked Holder what exactly is the “common cause” that binds the black attorney general and the black criminal? More important, what should the black attorney general do about this common cause? Should the black criminal feel empathy for the black attorney general, or more likely, do the favors only flow in one direction?

Holder’s explanation of Proctor’s quote offers some key insights into our attorney general’s worldview. First, being “more particular” than anything else, skin color limits and defines Americans — in other words, race comes first for Holder.

Ponder again Holder’s rancid comments, and consider what they mean for George Zimmerman.

Especially since Holder’s Civil Rights Division still has an open investigation of George Zimmerman, though just about nobody is reporting on this explosive fact.

If Zimmerman is acquitted, look for race-obsessed and truth-challenged Assistant Attorney General for Civil Rights Tom Perez to act against Zimmerman. We’ll see once again what that corrosive “common cause” can do.

Eric Holder must be closely monitored, just as his justice department is monitoring many other people.
Also, all those people who love what the essence of democracy entails, should take it to heart when the left and/or some people of color play the race card. Fight it with all of your might!

Mr. Adams, I could expect Zimmerman's federal case goes to trial and winds down with no punishment to George. But the Federal Court makes some ruling to outlaw neighborhood watch programs. To Holder and friends George is small potatoes. Changing court precedent would be a huge victory and change the law without legislation. It seems to me this is how they choose to operate.

"rancid comments" couldn't be much more accurate-but hey, pointing that out doesn't mean squat because yaknow, we're "cowards" because....hmmm....I guess because we're white....or something.

Of course Holder has an open civil rights case opened against Zimmerman. That is The Obama Holder plan in case Zimmerman is acquitted, try him on federal charges and add charges against him for the riots if they happen.

It means that no matter what they claim, blacks are, by their own admission, irredeemable. They will always be the ignorant, lazy, thieving, self-loathing things they have CHOSEN to be. If not for black on black crime and Planned Parenthood, they would completely overrun the country. As it is they are content to reside in their ghetto plantations under the thumbs of their race-hustling black masters as long as they still get their Obama Phones and Obama Food Stamps. I am grateful to Trayvon Martin for dying young and being the agent that exposed the negroes for what they are: A sad bunch of minstrels dancing for their masters' scraps.

You, not me elected a colored president, and these are his people and the best he has to offer.

He, Holder and all of the black panthers should be deported to Africa.

They would be hacked to death with machetes before they could leave the dock. If not, they would commit suicide when they could no longer live on the Racial-Grievance gravy train.

Totally OT< but a legal opinion is needed.
Reference the special ordinance passed by the District of Columbia requiring WalMart to pay a wage higher than others.

Isn't that a Bill of Attainder???

It certainly violates the Equal Protection clause, doesn't it?

Holder is a Black Klansman. It's as simple as that.

"race comes first for Holder."

A "black clansman" or a reverse Aryan Nation member, or a Hitler and a Mengele rolled into one? I don't know what happened to Holder (maybe he had a white girlfriend that dumped him when he was younger); but there is a quiet vindictiveness in him that is scary.

"This week, Judicial Watch released documents demonstrating that the Justice Department’s Community Relations Service was deeply entangled in New Black Panther-led rallies and protests in Sanford, Florida, against George Zimmerman. These are the same rallies during which the New Black Panthers called for a bounty on George Zimmerman, and released “dead or alive” posters. "

The DOJ's presence and participation in these protests was raised in another forum I saw and one of the leftists there immediately spun this (or cited another leftist who had already spun it) to say that the DOJ was there trying to calm things down, not stir things up. The leftist in question is someone who inevitably spins ANYTHING that isn't favorable to the Left so I'm not remotely convinced there's any truth to this. But for the sake of being open-minded, is there any evidence that the DOJ people there WERE stirring things up, rather than calming them down?

It would be great if we had reliable information about exactly what the DOJ actually did there, ideally from eyewitnesses. Somebody like PJM's own Zombie, with details substantiated by a disgusted insider would be ideal.

Otherwise, you know how this goes. The Left says the DOJ actually smoothed the waters can kept the hotheads from being much worse than they were and the DOJ gets hero credit instead of being reviled. Our side will inevitably scoff but no one will really know for sure....

Oops: "The Left says the DOJ actually smoothed the waters can kept the hotheads from being much worse....". The "can" in that sentence was supposed to be "and".

I would not call Eric Holder successful. He is a failure. The reason he is AG is he fails to be impartial. He was hired because he will do everything he can to ensure only blacks receive justice. He continues to cause division in America.
