n a recent interview with ABC News, Attorney General Eric Holder spewed more racist nonsense. He claimed that some of his critics and the President's critics were motivated by "racial animus."

According to Holder, "There’s a certain level of vehemence, it seems to me, that’s directed at me [and] directed at the president. You know, people talking about taking their country back. … There’s a certain racial component to this for some people."

Using the race card is the last refuge for liberals who do not want to be held accountable for their poor performance.

Holder is a specialist at using the race card. He is constantly claiming that Republicans are trying to suppress minority votes with voter identification initiatives. Instead of being worried about voter fraud, he is more interested in filing lawsuits directed at states for taking action to protect the integrity of their voting process.

Back in 2009, Holder famously said that we are a "nation of cowards" on the race issue. He claimed Americans do not honestly and openly discuss racism. Thus, Holder has taken it upon himself to talk about the issue endlessly.

Instead of acknowledging legitimate disagreements on the issues, he cries racism. It is a tactic of a political scoundrel who always attempts to limit serious debate while de-legitimizing his opposition.

While Holder is a specialist at crying racism, he is completely negligent in doing his real job, leading the Department of Justice. Holder was AWOL during the investigation into the Black Panthers intimidating voters in Pennsylvania. No charges were filed in that case, even though there was shocking video evidence.

In contrast, Holder has been very aggressive in targeting Arizona and other states who are trying to deal with the massive influx of illegal immigrants. According to Holder, these states cannot take action and must submit to this invasion and be held hostage to the federal government's inaction on the crisis.

He has refused to cooperate with Congress in the investigation into the "Fast and Furious" gun running operation. He ignored their subpoenas for documents that Congress needed to complete their investigation. As a result, Congress voted by an overwhelming margin to hold the Attorney General in contempt. Holder became the first Attorney General in history to be held in Contempt of Congress. Of course, Holder probably believes that Congress is filled with racists.
