|Eric Holder to NAACP: Obama’s War on White America will continue, unabated|
This was posted at Vdare by PK, a look at the NAACP speech in Houston by Eric “My People” Holder, the first Black Attorney General in U.S. History and the first Attorney General held in contempt by Congress. At Vdare, Kersey wrote:
Well Let Me Just Say, I Love You Back NAACP.” So begins Eric “My People” Holder’s address to the NAACP National Convention in Houston, Texas Tuesday. We already know the Attorney General of the United States and the Department of Justice he leads considers white Christians to be second-class citizens in the eyes of the law; but it was this address to the NAACP that Holder reiterated that Obama’s War on White America is alive and well.
In fact, Matt Drudge removed the color from his immensely important news aggregate site The Drudge Report, and had the ominous look of a black and white world, a gesture that was a clever way of pointing out the racially charged times we live in (the primary story as of 5:30 p.m. was a Washington Examiner piece that proclaims Mitt Romney is “too white” to address the NAACP).
Today, if you didn’t believe that the 2012 Presidential Election was going to be the most racially divisive in American history, a cursory glance at Drudge should have been enough to warn you of what is coming. Politico reported on Holder’s address to the NAACP (which Drudge links to the explosive headline “NAACP goes wild for Eric Holder...“
In a rousing speech at the NAACP convention in Houston, Attorney General Eric Holder on Tuesday strongly defended his efforts to block controversial voter ID laws in some states – including Texas – saying the Justice Department “will not allow political pretexts to disenfranchise American citizens of their most precious right.”
“The arc of American history has always moved toward expanding the electorate. It is what has made this nation exceptional. We will simply not allow this era to be the beginning of the reversal of that historic progress,” Holder told the assembled delegates.
Few people will dare hold Holder’s feet to the fire for what he is and what he is doing, so we’ll just lay it out: Eric Holder is a Black supremacist who holds the keys to the Department of Justice (DOJ) kingdom in his hands. And he is actively working to ensure that Obama’s War on White America continues unabated, with full legal protection and backing from a color-conscious DOJ.
It is from a 2009 Blog entry at Vdare that we learn why Holder seems so unconcerned with the rash of Black-on-white attacks/murders/Flash Mob (Mahogany Mob) incidents that have transpired since Obama took office. In a June 2009, Senate Judiciary Committee Hearing on the S.909, the Hate Crime Bill, Holder testified that these laws only protect certain groups:
Holder’s testimony and questions lasted 75 minutes. In any normal environment his rigid and flat-footed performance would have to be deemed a disaster. As Pike notes:
Under questioning, Attorney Gen. Holder was surprisingly forthright in admitting that the hate bill is not intended to protect everyone, or even the majority. He said only historically oppressed minorities were to benefit. This means Jews, blacks, homosexuals, women, etc. Holder made it clear that if a white Christian male, including a serviceman or police officer, was the victim of a violent hate crime by any minority he would have to find redress from traditional law. He could not avail himself of the triple penalties and rapid government/justice system response given a protected minority.
These catastrophic admissions were extracted by Senators Sessions (R-AL) and Coburn (R-OK). The webcast of the Hearings is here (on right) and the relevant passages are 58.30-61 minutes (Sessions) and 71.30-5 minutes (Coburn).
Holder made it plain that he is seeking legal privileges for certain groups based on what he told Senator Sessions was
“the unfortunate history of our nation”.
Obama’s War on White America is real. It is happening before our eyes. And the attendees of NAACP national conference (sponsored by many Fortune 100 companies) in Houston applauded this war, while booing Mitt Romney.
|Romney to NAACP: “Elect me, BRA’s power grows. Trust me.”|
Here is what Romney told the booing Black hordes at the NAACP convention, who just a day early chanted “Stand Your Ground” at Holder – an obvious reference to the simmering George Zimmerman-Trayvon Martin incident:
If someone had told us in the 1950s or 1960s that a black citizen would serve as the forty-fourth president, we would have been proud and many would have been surprised. Picturing that day, we might have assumed that the American presidency would be the very last door of opportunity to be opened. Before that came to pass, every other barrier on the path to equal opportunity would surely have come down.
Of course, it hasn’t happened quite that way. Many barriers remain. Old inequities persist. In some ways, the challenges are even more complicated than before. And across America — and even within your own ranks — there are serious, honest debates about the way forward.
If equal opportunity in America were an accomplished fact, then a chronically bad economy would be equally bad for everyone. Instead, it’s worse for African Americans in almost every way. The unemployment rate, the duration of unemployment, average income, and median family wealth are all worse for the black community. In June, while the overall unemployment rate remained stuck at 8.2 percent, the unemployment rate for African Americans actually went up, from 13.6 percent to 14.4 percent.
Americans of every background are asking when this economy will finally recover – and you, in particular, are entitled to an answer.
If equal opportunity in America were an accomplished fact, black families could send their sons and daughters to public schools that truly offer the hope of a better life. Instead, for generations, the African-American community has been waiting and waiting for that promise to be kept. Today, black children are 17 percent of students nationwide – but they are 42 percent of the students in our worst-performing schools.
Our society sends them into mediocre schools and expects them to perform with excellence, and that is not fair.
The Republican Party’s record, by the measures you rightly apply, is not perfect. Any party that claims a perfect record doesn’t know history the way you know it.
Yet always, in both parties, there have been men and women of integrity, decency, and humility who called injustice by its name. For every one of us a particular person comes to mind, someone who set a standard of conduct and made us better by their example. For me, that man is my father, George Romney.
It wasn’t just that my Dad helped write the civil rights provision for the Michigan Constitution, though he did. It wasn’t just that he helped create Michigan’s first civil rights commission, or that as governor he marched for civil rights in Detroit – though he did those things, too.
More than these public acts, it was the kind of man he was, and the way he dealt with every person, black or white. He was a man of the fairest instincts, and a man of faith who knew that every person was a child of God.
I’m grateful to him for so many things, and above all for the knowledge of God, whose ways are not always our ways, but whose justice is certain and whose mercy endures forever.
Every good cause on this earth relies in the end on a plan bigger than ours. “Without dependence on God,” as Dr. King said, “our efforts turn to ashes and our sunrises into darkest night. Unless his spirit pervades our lives, we find only what G. K. Chesterton called ‘cures that don’t cure, blessings that don’t bless, and solutions that don’t solve.’”
Of all that you bring to the work of today’s civil rights cause, no advantage counts for more than this abiding confidence in the name above every name. Against cruelty, arrogance, and all the foolishness of man, this spirit has carried the NAACP to many victories. More still are up ahead, and with each one we will be a better nation.
Detroit, the shining example of what the post-Civil Rights world birthed, is a direct representation of what Black people are capable of creating. Lacking the ability to sustain a world-class city, Romney would have us believe that it is some form of “institutional racism” that creates racial gaps in learning, income, wealth, test scores, etc. That Black mothers (72 percent of Blacks are born out of wedlock; don’t call them “Black families” Romney) send their children to inadequate schools isn’t due to a lack of money; most inner-city or majority Black schools receive more per-pupil funding than majority white schools.
That Black children are 42 percent of the enrollment at our worst-performing schools is because individual Black children combine to produce grades and standardized test scores that consistently make majority-Black schools the worst-performing in America.
Black unemployment rates are directly correlated to the fact that a great many Black people are unemployable in America’s service economy, save for government/public jobs. Not institutional racism.
Obama’s War on White America is real; worse, Romney has no problem taking the baton from that “half-white dude” and moving forward with it, were he elected as POTUS this upcoming November.
Houston, we have a problem.
