Eric Holder Suggests that Racism is Behind Republicans' Tough Questioning Of Him
Attorney General Eric "My people" Holder went to speak at racist Al Sharpton's National Action Network event today, and to the shock of no one, he played the race card.
Before Sharpton was a power broker in the Democratic Party and a host on MSNBC, he rose to power by instigating violent race riots.
Holder said, "I am pleased to note that the last five years have been defined by significant strides, and by lasting reforms. Even in the face...even in the face...of unprecedented, unwarranted, ugly and divisive adversity."
The audience applauded.
Holder continued: "Forget about me. You look at the way the Attorney General of the United States was treated yesterday by a House committee. Had nothing to do with me. Forget that. What attorney general has ever had that kind of treatment?"
Holder is referring to his exchange with Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX). Gohmert and other Republicans were trying to pin down when Holder's Department of Justice would fulfill a promise that Holder had made to deliver documents. Holder refused to answer forthrightly. Gohmert called him out, to which Holder replied "You don't want to go there, buddy!"
Holder continued: "What president has ever had to deal with that kind of treatment?"
The audience applauded all of Holder's claims.
