Wondering why Eric Holder refused to prosecute a group of Black Panthers who threatened white voters in Philadelphia on election day 2008? Don't worry, Eric will tell you. From the Washington Examiner, we get a story about a quote he carries in his wallet:
... that says a black man's "race defines him more particularly than anything else. Black people have a common cause that requires attending to."
In case that is not disconcerting enough in its own right, Mr. Holder elaborated: "It really says that ... I am not the tall U.S. Attorney, I am not the thin U.S. Attorney. I am the black U.S. Attorney.... There's a common cause that bonds the black U.S. Attorney with the black criminal or the black doctor with the black homeless person."
And they call the folks on the Right "racist". Barack Obama has appointed an Attorney General that has made it clear that justice will work with the blindfolds off, judging each case not on its merits, but on the color of one's skin.
Remember - this is what is called "progressive".
The brilliant Jennifer Rubin has more on Holder, and Justice under Obama. From her sources on the inside:
.... Department staff “openly and proudly advocate for a different standard” depending on the race of the alleged civil rights violator. He contends that this view extends now up to the attorney general and to staff attorneys who “say it openly at the Justice Department when the topic of ‘reverse’ discrimination comes up.”
...civil rights laws will be interpreted and enforced not as protecting anyone who is discriminated against or intimidated on the basis of race, as the civil rights laws provide, but as protecting only those of certain races.
Perhaps the progressives who approve of justice meted out by skin color should be a little less surprised when they see a million Americans protesting the Obama administration in DC. After all...
No Justice, No Peace....right?
