Holder Tosses Race Card

The opinions expressed by columnists are their own and do not necessarily represent the views of

Eric Holder doesn’t have a good answer for his involvement in the Fast and Furious scandal, but he has come up with an explanation for why he is the target of so much criticism.  It’s because he’s black, which he says is also why Barack Obama gets criticized, too.  

Holder says he’s a convenient two-fer for Obama critics.  People identify him with the President because “you know, the fact that we’re both African American.” He also says those people who take exception with him or with Obama are part of the “more extreme segment” of America.

So, this administration doesn’t make mistakes, and can’t possibly be wrong.  And, if you happen to disagree with them, you are either an extremist, a racist, or more likely, both.

This comes from the Attorney General of the first post-racial President – outrageous!  Here’s an excerpt from the interview published in the New York Times, with the full article linked here:

“Of that group of critics, Mr. Holder said he believed that a few — the ‘more extreme segment’ — were motivated by animus against Mr. Obama and that he served as a stand-in for him. ‘This is a way to get at the president because of the way I can be identified with him,’ he said, ‘both due to the nature of our relationship and, you know, the fact that we’re both African-American.’”
