Barack Obama and Eric Holder: The Rot Begins At The Top

Posted by KingShamus on March 2, 2011

Remember the New Black Panther who was caught on video doing voter intimidation type shit back in Election 2008?  Well, Eric Holder is finally gonna do something…about the bitter clingers complaining about it.

Attorney General Eric Holder finally got fed up Tuesday with claims that the Justice Department went easy in a voting rights case against members of the New Black Panther Party because they are African American.

Holder’s frustration over the criticism became evident during a House Appropriations subcommittee hearing as Rep. John Culberson (R-Texas) accused the Justice Department of failing to cooperate with a Civil Rights Commission investigation into the handling of the 2008 incident in which Black Panthers in intimidating outfits and wielding a club stood outside a polling place in Philadelphia.

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.

…”To compare that kind of courage, that kind of action, and to say that the Black Panther incident wrong thought it might be somehow is greater in magnitude or is of greater concern to us, historically, I think just flies in the face of history and the facts.,” Holder said with evident exasperation.

Hey Eric, quick question-what the fuck do we have voter intimidation laws on the books if not to deal with idiots like King Samir Shabazz?  I mean, I realize it offends your delicate racial sensibilities when these crazy right-wingers bitch about you dropping the ball on the New Black Panther case.  The problem is that no matter what you think about the case, there are millions of people who have seen the video.  Not all of them are just anti-Obama haters angling for political hit points.  Most of the people talking about this are–shock of shocks–concerned about voter intimidation.

Here’s a thought, E-Ho. Instead of giving us dime-store time travelogues to the Civil Rights Era, how’s about you…I dunno…deal with the crimes that are occuring under your watch?

But it’s not just Eric Holder that is going into full-on dickbag mode.  Check out everybody’s favorite Lightbringer.

Kenneth T. Walsh, in a “Special Report” for US News Weekly (2/26) titled, “Race in the Era of Obama,” writes that in May 2010, President Obama “told guests at a private White House dinner that race was probably a key component in the rising opposition to his presidency from conservatives, especially right-wing activists in the anti-incumbent ‘Tea Party’ movement. … A guest suggested that when Tea Party activists said they wanted to ‘take back’ their country, their real motivation was to stir up anger and anxiety at having a black president, and Obama didn’t dispute the idea. He agreed that there was a ‘subterranean agenda’ in the anti-Obama movement — a racially biased one.”

Nice slime job, Obambi.

I dunno why I have to do this, but let’s break this TeaParty=Bigots idea down a little.  To pick just one representative of the Vast Right Wing Conspiracy, Rush Limbaugh has been against big government since the Big Bang.  What the hell was Rush Limbaugh supposed to say or do when Barack Obama got sworn in? Shout hosanahs to HopeyChangey while legitimizing Obama’s statist agenda?

But of course, in Obambi’s world conservatives hate on him because he’s black.

As Robert Stacy McCain noted in the original link–which ya’all need to read now–this line of attack against the Tea Party, that some thought originated from the Bamster’s political operatives, actually comes directly from St. Barry himself.   

Obama now owns all five A’s in “raaaaacism.”

Ain’t that the truth.

This is why I don’t understand the reluctance on the part of many Republicans to go after Obama harder than they do. Prince Zero is using the most damning charge in American political life to describe his opposition. But righties are nervous about calling Obama a socialist. Ooooh, wouldn’t want to use over-the-top rhetoric against the personally-popular-yet-politically-middling President.

Really, conservatives?

Riddle me this, righties. The Obama Administration is doing all it can to beat you. St. Barry loathes you and makes little effort to hide his utter disdain for American traditionalists. He hates you so much, he’s super-dooper stoked to lie about your beliefs and call your ideology racist. That’s still not enough for you to start calling Obama’s policies by their actual name?

The counter-argument goes something like, “Well, Republican leaders in Congress aren’t using that language, so…” Yeah, so what? If the GOP jumped off an electoral cliff, would you follow them?

Now I’m not talking about just hurling random insults at the President. That would be incredibly counter-productive. I’m talking about articulating exactly how and why Barack Obama is fucking this country sideways with no lube. Unemployment is sky-high? Well, that would be in large part because businesses are nervous about hiring people when the President isn’t sure if he’s going to tax the firms to death, nationalize them for his union buddies to pick over or regulate them into non-existence.

Moreover, it isn’t some nameless policy wonk buried in the Department of Labor or the EPA or the Treasury that’s dreaming these nightmare schemes up. Obama isn’t just one cog in the gears of government that has no control over things. It is from his pathetically antiquated hack left-wing mind that these socialist policies are coming from. The President should be held personally responsible for taking what would have been a fairly tough but still manageable patch in America’s economic life and turning it into a looming existential crisis.

I know there are some people who still really like Obama. He’s got a nice jump-shot, he’s a pretty show-pony of a man and Hollywood seems to have a crush on him, so whatever. I know it’s risky to call the President out like that. But the bigger risk is in continuing to play this boneheaded ‘We-disagree-with-Obama-politically’ game. Obama must be made to pay a price for policies that have crippled the economy and bankrupted the country. That means we have to call him what he is–which is a socialist, by the way–and make the case why HIS socialist agenda is ruining America.

Obama and his charmless attorney general have already thrown down the race card against us. Why should we not hit back? Unlike Obama, we actually have concrete proof that the President is socialist. All we have to do is make the case and connect the national crisis to Obama and his ideas.

UPDATE:  The awesome Bob Belvedere of the always strong Camp Of the Saints discovers that Stanley Kurtz agrees with me.  ;-p

The Republicans won in 2010 because the Tea Party was bold enough to say out loud that Obama was hiding his radical, effectively socialist, and utterly unaffordable plans from the public. Yet Republicans seem reluctant to make the same point today, when everything indicates that the original Tea Party take on Obama was right. How can Republicans win with a campaign based on conventional policy analysis when Obama isn’t telling the truth about what his actual policy intentions are?

I’m not calling on Republicans to claim that Obama wants to “destroy” America. But Obama does want to radically transform this country, and he’s not being honest about what that involves. At some point, Republicans are going to have to say this if they want to win. I recently made this point about the budget debate. It’s not that Obama is “failing to lead” on the budget. The problem is that he knows all-too-well where he’s leading us.

Bingo.

Bob goes on to say that if Republicans keep pulling their punches, they will deservedly be defeated by Obummer.

He’s exactly right. 

The GOP is this close (holds fngers a nonometer apart) to blowing their chance to beat Obama in 2012.  I can feel these chicken-shit losers just dying to go RINO on us.

  1. Let’s hope 2012 Obama gets his hopey changey ass handed to him. It’s difficult, but not impossible, to beat a sitting president. And since President Jug Ears reminds me of Carter, let’s hope the Republicans (or whatever party replaces it) can field another Ronald Reagan.

  2. […] King Shamus and his Eric Holder the rot begins at the top  Everything is right on schedule. Eric Holder, Louis Farrakhan and the Black Panthers. Perfect […]

  3. An excellant job of structuring your arguments, KS. Racism is Racism. I does not matter if it comes from a whitey or from a black or from a president that happens to be black. He should be held to the same or higher standards as the rest of Americans. But I’m not sure he wants to be thought of as an American. The Republicans need to grow some…

    You are so right on this one. It’s time for the GOP to call it like they see them. It worked for the founders. It worked for Reagan. It’ll work now.

    I for one have had it up to here with this racist administration and the chickenhearted buzzards who refuse to call them out on this despicable stance! From holder to his association over the years with radical hating racists, the President always manages in the end to show his true colors. Slam his Leftist policies, you’re a racist! Disagree with his complete incompetency in foreign policy, you’re a racist. Point out the open faced lies about cutting the deficit in his budget, you’re a racist! In other words, try to have a civil discourse with any radical leftist in this country today using facts and figures, you are a racist!

    Debate and civil discourse. It’s where ideas come from! It’s a forum to, if not fix a problem, at least address it and come up with some consensus to at least try! As such, debate or discussion can hurt one’s feelings and/or illicit some rather harsh reactions. My point is until we as a people can discuss stuff without hate, until we can cast aside our own ideologies, our biases, etc. and approach a subject with open minds, there cannot be fixes. As a society we must work together. Listening is a fine art. Learning and changing one’s mind due to constructive criticism, and I want to emphasize that, constructive criticism is a sign of maturity and leadership. Can you even remotely understand this view Mr. President, or is your head stuck so far up your elitist ass that you as most politicians are too far above us mortals to bother worrying about it? From my little part of the world, it sure appears that way! One thing for sure in my view. You and your administration have done more to set back racial relations in this country than any other administration in my lifetime!

    Debate is imperative for this country to survive. Criticism is good, provided it is true! As I said, debate must be accompanied by open minds. This must be conducted by using the Truth and Facts! This must be done by educating yourselves! Keep an open mind, but dig up everything you can from both sides. Then make an informed decision. As we go forward, we will be called fear mongers and worse! WEAR IT AS A BADGE OF HONOR. Radicals of any persuasion FEAR the truth and facts, so shout it out as loudly as possible. This is our country. Love for country and the ideals it was founded on IS NOT HATE as the hard left keeps saying. Opposing bad policy IS NOT RACISM as we are charged with! Fight the BIG LIE with the TRUTH! Our country depends on this!

  8. No compromise, no quarter, until the Progressive threat to the republic is beaten back.

    Bunkerville: Thank you so much for the link.

    CoF: Thank you. Obama is uncomfortable with his American-ness. Pathetic chump we elected President, that’s for damn sure.

    Dean_L: Thank you. As for the metric…jeez, I dunno what happened there. In the midst of my annoyed rant, I went all Eurodweeb. I apologize.

    CG: Amen.

    Matt: Right? How come they can’t figure that out? Oh right, because they’re fucking stupid.

    Joe: I get what you’re saying. The constant knee-jerk masturbatory playing of the race-card is one reason I don’t often debate liberals. Welcome to my blog. Come back anytime.

    LibertyAtStake: That, my friend, is the truth.
