Racism; Did you know you are a racist? :-)

Washington (CNN) — Attorney General Eric Holder says he sees “racial animus” in strident Republican opposition to some Obama administration policies. Some media conservatives say he’s playing racial politics.

Holder on Sunday told ABC’s “This Week” that “there’s a certain level of vehemence, it seems to me, that’s directed at me (and) directed at the President. … There’s a certain racial component to this for some people.”  (Z:  why can’t it definitely be directed at them and NOT BE RACIST!??  That’s just amazingly stupid)

Holder said he also stood by comments from a 2009 speech in which he said America is a “nation of cowards” on race and sees a crop of new voter identification laws, many of them passed by GOP-controlled state legislatures, as a way to disenfranchise minority voters.

Some conservative figures accused Holder and the White House of “playing to the fears and anxieties of minorities in hopes of scaring them to the polls in November,” as Wall Street Journal (Black) opinion writer Jason L. Riley wrote in an editorial for the paper on Monday.    ……..HERE is more…make sure you read the whole article because it’s important.

Z:  To be fair, Holder said “Some Americans..”   But, I think that’s dangerous.  Why bring racism up?  And, if asked about whether it played any part in  criticism aimed at him or Obama, why not say “I think we’re past that at this point.  I hope it’s not the case, I don’t think it’s the case, and it doesn’t help to ‘go there’.”   I’m not a big fan of Karl Rove’s but he’s right when he asked on TV yesterday  if Holder thought that  Democrats who criticized Condi Rice were racists?

  1. I am not a racist.
    I no longer assume every black person I meet is an Obama supporter.
    I am prejudiced.
    If you have an Obama logo, I assume your stupid.

    holder is the racist. Accuse your opposition of what you are. standard fascist procedure.

    One could write volumes about this incompetent criminal.

    “The Obama administration filed a federal hate-crimes charge Thursday against a man whom authorities accused of using the “knockout game” to target a black man, videotaping it, and then bragging about the assault to strangers.
    The charge marks the first time the administration has taken action on a “knockout” case after the game became an Internet and media phenomenon. It chose a case in which the person accused is white, even though most other cases reported in the news have involved black assailants.​” – Dec 2013​

    The racial animus emanates from the Obama gang. Race baiting whities is the national sport now, and the way they’ve set it up, there’s no good way to respond other than silence.

    so what did they call it when the left went after Alberto Gonzalez and ConDaleeza Rice?
    Fair game?

    Ed…good one. Stupid…particularly if someone voted for him the second time. I don’t see how people could have seen lies he told CONFIRMED and still voted for him, or the way he handled so many things in the first term and still voted for him. It’s an enigma. Well, let’s put it this way; I’d feel better if it WAS an enigma. I think we know why people voted for him. They want their goodies, they feel better electing a Black man than an experienced man, they drank the Kool Aid. And look what we’ve got NOW. And then they call us RACIST when any of us would have probably voted for a Black Conservative candidate ANY day of the year if he had our values!

    Kid….I agree. Man, that Dec 2013 case is a hideous situation. Bravo to the media for getting Holder a pass by not talking about this and so much more. We have no real media anymore; and it appears that we’re learning now how an immoral, dishonest media can kill a country.

    Silverfiddle; if we had a REALLY articulate representative , even a Black Conservative politician, we COULD respond to the accusations. I truly believe that. With honestly, openness, the right words.

    Lisa…that’s the point; why weren’t the Dems racist for having insulted Condi Rice and Gonzalez? Apparently, the double standard is very alive and well.


  7. Impertinent says:

    Both of these minstrel show clowns have done more to foster more racism than Jim Crow ever did. And many more real racists are “out of the closet” now. And the majority of them are…Black.
    Wherever racism had been toned ( total elimination is impossible ) down or just ignored…it’s now open and full blown. It’s in your face everyday but the media denies, lies or excuses it. 50 years after LBJ signed the CRA into law….we’ve seen a total abandonment and reversal of race relations in this country. Ovomit and Holder have completely unravelled it’s intended purpose by giving blacks the go ahead to hate whites. And to blame them for their lack of progress. Both of them should be impeached for aiding and abetting a crime.


  8. geeez2014 says:

    Imp; I SO agree.

    I just spoke to a friend from TX…I’m waiting for some more information, but wait till all of you guys hear what this friend said about the immigration situation; I have a kind of scoop that I’ll be blogging a little later. HOLY COW. I may send it to FOX, too.


  9. The Vegas Kid says:

    What IS being a racist is NOT impeaching someone because of their race. THAT is racism!


  10. Playing the race card is effective because Americans — particularly white Americans — have been so indoctrinated in white guilt. I see it all the time — even among conservatives.

    Once again, I mention Howard Zinn, whose views have been included in on way or another in so many teaching materials. Thus we have some 30 years of brainwashing, and many of those upon whom the race card is played today fall for the ruse.

    We cannot undo the past. What was done is what was done — and I refuse to feel guilty about something my ancestors did. What matter is what I do. I will not be held accountable collectively.

    Ultimately, people like Eric Holder are taking us back to race war.


  11. John M. Berger says:

    Well, I would say that “racism” played a significant role in getting B.O. elected; TWICE!


  12. Z,
    I’m not a big fan of Karl Rove’s but he’s right when he asked on TV yesterday if Holder thought that Democrats who criticized Condi Rice were racists?

    I, too, don’t like Karl Rove. But he’s spot on with that one!


  13. Hey, folks! Have you seen Bunkerville’s post today? The title of that blog post: “Eric Holder dispensed with Elian Gonzalez, not so much our new ‘refugees’.”


  14. Mustang says:

    I am not a racist, but I did stay at a Holiday Inn Express last night. I’ve always been led to believe that whomever first makes the claim of racism is likely a racist himself. This would appear to apply to both Holder and Obama. And for the record, I detest both of those fools, but not because they are black. I loathe them because they are human scum and the enemy of the United States and its people.


  15. Impertinent says:

    Latest breaking news. TB outbreak. Seems the DHS isn’t stocking up on billions of bullets to quell possible civil unrest. They’re flying diseased illegals to cities all over the US. Wait until the outbreak of TB, measles, chicken pox, lice and scabies starts infesting the schools. Could they be so evil as to cause a plague among the citizens of the US that the CDC won’t be able to control it?
    Or are they attempting to provoke civil unrest with many more cities like Murietta refusing to accept these illegals with more blockades or perhaps violence?


  16. Impertinent says:

    Protests erupting in AZ as they block illegals. Sheriff in AZ calls on the states to call out their own National Guard. Meanwhile…Ovomit claims he”s sent back 40 illegals.
    It’s starting IMHO. Illegal gangs from the South are claiming they’re underage and getting enrolled in public schools.


  17. Impertinent says:

    Even the idiots in Maryland are refusing to take in the latest bunch of junk…hmmmm….I thought they were so compassionate?


  18. geeez2014 says:

    will it take diphtheria or cholera to wake American parents up?
    These kids are alone, they’re in need, but many are sick, MANY are gang members, coming in with some pretty expensive tattoos, by the way………….
    it costs thousands to get the Coyotes to take the kids thru Mexico; who’s paying for that?


  19. Impertinent says:

    I heard 500 to 7000 a head…”poor, penniless, poverty stricken” peasants? Perhaps it’s from the remittances the illegals send back?


  20. Impertinent says:

    Idiot demrat says gang tat’s aren’t a reason to deny illegals passage or their “rights”. But Marines are denied them as well as most of our serviceman. BTW…did anyone hear about the fist black female admiral? Can’t fly an aircraft either. Nice to know when you’re a pilot trying to hit the wire in an F18 at night on a rolling deck…the “admiral” knows how it is. Don’t worry…a transgender one will be in command of a bommer someday, right?


  21. Impertinent says:

    Has it ever occurred to anyone that while the loons were cursing, mocking, slandering, defaming, lampooning and degrading Alan West, Clarence Thomas, Ben Carson, Walter Williams or Condi Rice that that “wasn’t” racist? That as conservatives and off the demrat plantation, they deserved the Oreo and Tom labels that they attacked them with? You see…I fervently believe that dems really hate blacks and they save their vitriol for those blacks on the right. It’s acceptable and excusable to them to vent their hate without consequences on these people. Hypocrites is too kind of a label to use on these creeps.


  22. geeez2014 says:

    Ya, Imp; read above. A lot of us are asking how it’s only racist when Holder or Obama get called on their stuff. Apparently, calling Conservative Blacks names isn’t racist.
    Go figure! But, heck, these are people who’d come to my blog when I allowed the nastier leftwingers calling us racists on posts by me championing Alan West, Ben Carson, etc…never failed.
    And these folks vote.


  23. Impertinent says:

    Thank God for the exterminating job Z. The ole house needed fumigation. But it’s better to move into a new one, right?


  24. Kid says:

    I’ll 2nd that. They have nothing to offer, and they have zero chance of learning anything. Airing the views of racist, violent, unintelligent, adolescents just doesn’t have any value. We know what and who they are. Unbelievably stupid and/or sociopath. If anyone wants to see them in action, they’re all over the net, especially their leporsy colonies like daily-kooks.

    I see them posting at other blogs who still exhibit the patience of saints, or are maybe conducting an experiment or something, and all of their comments are -if you’ve read one, you’ve read them all.


  25. Mustang says:

    Attention Hamas: Obama and Holder are good to eat and also very nutritious. And also, Halal.


  26. Baysider says:

    Ditto Kid & Mustang: Holder sees the real racist every day …. when he looks in the mirror. And yes, I have actually heard a black woman say in public that blacks can’t be racist. Only those with ‘white privilege.’ blah … blah … blah. Yawn.


  27. Kid says:

    Baysider, outside of black towards white, racism doesn’t exist.. Any sane person wants everyone to be successful. Those who are not in a position to profit for their efforts for whatever reason will use that which best provides for them. Usually this is playing the race card. Given that the obama administration enhances people’s ability to do that this will only get worse over the short term.

    Still not as bad as a world war eh?

    To interject something positive, I have to say that I realize that those of us born in the 50s have lived probably the best decades in American or World history. 50’s-60-70-80-90’s an a touch into 2000. 5 decades. Not bad if this is what it comes to. Yet still WE are the gatekeepers. We revolt at evil gaining an inch anywhere. We will win this one way or another.


  28. Baysider says:

    Interesting comment there, Kid. “Any sane person wants everyone to be successful.” What does that say about so many who have enough envy, jealousy and resentment (real or imagined) that they would be willing to see all taken down just so they can feel better about equality in poverty. THAT is truly insane. Never thought of it like that before.

    Not sure I agree with your racist comment, though. Our country is so devoid of racism compared to most of the world for most of history, except for caricatures of it from deep in our history. And, of course, the growing envy, jealousy and resentment of ‘white privilege’ among non-whites with the greatest opportunities available to them just about anywhere at any time. Yet, there are still ‘good ‘ol boys’ around. While I believe they are way less in proportion to Hollywood’s imagination, I’ve run into 1 or 2 over the years.

    Racism is everywhere because human hearts are everywhere. How many people know the book “The Cleanest Race: How North Koreans See Themselves and Why it Matters” for example?


  29. Kid says:

    Yes, there are some white racists. I was thinking a little too abstractly there.


  30. geeez2014 says:

    I’d hire that newsman tomorrow if I had need for his work! Finally, someone tells the awful truth; then gets suspended. We are SO LOST.


  31. Impertinent says:

    When will this ridiculousness end? Garbage like this, along with the idiocy involving that Spielberg/dead dinosaur picture and the flag removal at the Robert E Lee University memorial, makes you wonder: Maybe America does have it coming. Maybe the US does need to collapse, so we can just start over. I used to simply think the world had a couple idiots here and there, but now it’s just surreal.


  32. geeez2014 says:

    Imp? Dead dinosaur? Robt E Lee U flag removal? Tell us! I haven’t heard of either and I’m pretty plugged in.


  33. Kid says:

    IMP, All the women on the View were incensed over this as well.
