The First Black Attorney General Eric Holder Calls America's Citizens "Racial Cowards"

2-18-09

It looks like it is going to be a long four years of this kind of garbage folks and these people are just getting warmed up.

Attorney General Eric Holder described the United States Wednesday as a nation of cowards on matters of race, saying most Americans avoid discussing awkward racial issues.

In a speech to Justice Department employees marking Black History Month, Holder said the workplace is largely integrated but Americans still self-segregate on the weekends and in their private lives.

Now let me get this straight, we have a half black president and his full on black wife currently occupying this nation’s White House. Some 96% of the black people in this country voted for one Barack Hussein Obama simply because he was black and secondly because he had a big D after his name. Blacks have a tendency to vote for other blacks only if they are Democrats because they have this misguided notion, even after some 40-50 years of “never quite attained” promises, that this political party will somehow make their lives better by giving them more and more “free stuff.”

Oddly enough this little speech about how divided we are along racial lines was given by the first black Attorney General of the United States, the most powerful law enforcement officer in the country.

“Though this nation has proudly thought of itself as an ethnic melting pot, in things racial we have always been and I believe continue to be, in too many ways, essentially a nation of cowards. We, as average Americans, simply do not talk enough with each other about race.” said Holder.

I beg to differ Mr. Holder, in fact that pretty much is all the Democrats talked about during the presidential campaign and all this racial chatter is really designed to accomplish two things and two things only.

First is to continue to instill in white people what I like to call “black slavery guilt”. In fact white liberals thinking they could finally get this racial monkey off their backs were thrilled to be able to vote for a “black” presidential candidate, a man who has deliberately suppressed mention of his 50% Caucasian blood for most of his life lest it interfere with any free rides being black may offer, and purge their souls of this silly self imposed guilt. One thing that rarely if ever gets mentioned are the black people in Africa that sold their own people into slavery. I wonder how many descendants of those people live in this country and how they are dealing with their guilt?

Second this kind of rhetoric is designed to actually do exactly the opposite of what Mr. Holder says and that is to stifle any talk of racial issues, even more so than in the past. Why? Simple. He hopes it will prevent any criticism of Obama’s actions as president and, along the same lines, any critical observations of the job he is doing as attorney general. Even now the Obama fan club chuckleheads have only one response when someone disagrees with their Messiah’s ideology, they instantly label these folks as racists. The only game the Obama-bots have is whipping out the race card because they possess no method of responsible intelligent discourse in the arena of political thought, a direct result of the severely dumbed down educational system in this country.

He urged people of all races to use Black History Month as a chance for honest discussion of racial matters, including issues of health care, education, and economic disparities.

Here we have Holder’s subtle code for Obama’s transfer the wealth policies or as honest (since he wants us to be honest) people would just come out and say, reparations for blacks. Obama has never made secret his intention to take the assets from one part of our society and subsequently pump that money into primarily black areas because he thinks this country has ignored the plight of these folks for far too long.


Even when people mix at the workplace or afterwork social events, Holder argued, many Americans in their free time are still segregated inside what he called “race-protected cocoons.”

“Saturdays and Sundays, America in the year 2009 does not in some ways differ significantly from the country that existed almost 50 years ago. This is truly sad,” said Holder.

What a load. Has this guy ever been to a sporting event? Millions of people from all walks of life get together virtually every weekend to watch and root for their favorite teams and players! Watch an NBA basketball game on TV. The players? Mostly black yet the stands are full of people from all ethnic backgrounds. The last time I checked there were no black, white, Hispanic or Asian sections in any of this these sporting arenas, like there was well over half a century ago. As far as what people do after work and on the weekends, since when did that become the business or the interest of the United States Attorney General? I have an idea Mr. Holder, try doing something about the illegal aliens that have swarmed our country costing taxpayers trillions of dollars in health care, educational and law enforcement costs!

Holder told hundreds of Justice Department employees gathered for the event that they have a special responsibility to advance racial understanding.

More code for ordering Justice Department employees to further restrict what people can say about racial issues and as an interesting twist, I suspect what they can say about “religion” specifically what can be said about Islam and Muslims. If you have something to say that some special interest group doesn’t like they will simply buzz up the soon to be available Justice Department race and religion hotline and lodge their complaint. The target party of these special interest groups can then prepare themselves for a type of governmental attention they have never experienced before and as a result of this attention they can and will be silenced. This kind of intimidation is already happening all over the world. Welcome to the beginning of the end of the First Amendment soon to be followed by the death of the rest these clowns don’t like.

The funny thing is after I finished reading this article about Holder’s speech I had one of those sudden feelings of deja vu all over again…

At least four years of this constant drumbeat is coming our way folks and the very last thing that will be tolerated in this country will be the honest discussion of anything regarding racial issues. What better way to stifle opposition to Obama’s agenda than to place the jackboot of racism on the necks of those who speak out?

Read what Dr. Anne Wortham, an associate professor of sociology at Illinois State University had to say immediately after Barack Obama was elected.

Fellow Americans,

Please know: I am black; I grew up in the segregated South. I did not vote for Barack Obama; I wrote in Ron Paul’s name as my choice for president. Most importantly, I am not race conscious. I do not require a black president to know that I am a person of worth, and that life is worth living. I do not require a black president to love the ideal of America.

I cannot join you in your celebration. I feel no elation. There is no smile on my face. I am not jumping with joy. There are no tears of triumph in my eyes. For such emotions and behavior to come from me, I would have to deny all that I know about the requirements of human flourishing and survival – all that I know about the history of the United States of America, all that I know about American race relations, and all that I know about Barack Obama as a politician. I would have to deny the nature of the “change” that Obama asserts has come to America. Most importantly, I would have to abnegate my certain understanding that you have chosen to sprint down the road to serfdom that we have been on for over a century. I would have to pretend that individual liberty has no value for the success of a human life. I would have to evade your rejection of the slender reed of capitalism on which your success and mine depend. I would have to think it somehow rational that 94 percent of the 12 million blacks in this country voted for a man because he looks like them (that blacks are permitted to play the race card), and that they were joined by self-declared “progressive” whites who voted for him because he doesn’t look like them. I would have to be wipe my mind clean of all that I know about the kind of people who have advised and taught Barack Obama and will fill posts in his administration – political intellectuals like my former colleagues at the Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government.

I would have to believe that “fairness” is equivalent of justice. I would have to believe that man who asks me to “go forward in a new spirit of service, in a new service of sacrifice” is speaking in my interest. I would have to accept the premise of a man that economic prosperity comes from the “bottom up,” and who arrogantly believes that he can will it into existence by the use of government force. I would have to admire a man who thinks the standard of living of the masses can be improved by destroying the most productive and the generators of wealth.

Finally, Americans, I would have to erase from my consciousness the scene of 125,000 screaming, crying, cheering people in Grant Park, Chicago irrationally chanting “Yes We Can!” Finally, I would have to wipe all memory of all the times I have heard politicians, pundits, journalists, editorialists, bloggers and intellectuals declare that capitalism is dead – and no one, including especially Alan Greenspan, objected to their assumption that the particular version of the anti-capitalistic mentality that they want to replace with their own version of anti-capitalism is anything remotely equivalent to capitalism.

So you have made history, Americans. You and your children have elected a black man to the office of the president of the United States, the wounded giant of the world. The battle between John Wayne and Jane Fonda is over – and that Fonda won. Eugene McCarthy and George McGovern must be very happy men. Jimmie Carter, too. And the Kennedys have at last gotten their Kennedy look-a-like. The self-righteous welfare statists in the suburbs can feel warm moments of satisfaction for having elected a black person. So, toast yourselves: 60s countercultural radicals, 80s yuppies and 90s bourgeois bohemians. Toast yourselves, Black America. Shout your glee Harvard, Princeton, Yale, Duke, Stanford, and Berkeley. You have elected not an individual who is qualified to be president, but a black man who, like the pragmatist Franklin Roosevelt, promises to – Do Something! You now have someone who has picked up the baton of Lyndon Johnson’s Great Society. But you have also foolishly traded your freedom and mine – what little there is left – for the chance to feel good. There is nothing in me that can share your happy obliviousness.

How’s that for an honest discussion about race relations Eric Holder?
