Eric Holder: Black Panther case focus demeans ‘my people’
The Attorney General seemed to take personal offense at a comment Culberson read in which former Democratic activist Bartle Bull called the incident the most serious act of voter intimidation he had witnessed in his career.
“Think about that,” Holder said. “When you compare what people endured in the South in the 60s to try to get the right to vote for African Americans, and to compare what people were subjected to there to what happened in Philadelphia—which was inappropriate, certainly that…to describe it in those terms I think does a great disservice to people who put their lives on the line, who risked all, for my people,” said Holder, who is black.
Here is the Black Panther video where voters were intimidated on election day Nov. 4, 2008.
It’s obvious that Holder has a racist sway to his thinking in light of this statement, if this were anyone else they would have been asked to resign.
Imagine if Edwin Meese had made a statement like this, or John Ashcroft for that matter?
Heads would be rolling!
Of course Holder didn’t prosecute these thugs and with this “my people” statement from Holder we now know why. Holder defends them!
Are we going to see any repercussions from Holder’s statement?
Not with the tilted scales of justice from the Obama White House.
