    An Eric Holder twofer:

    Holder: Americans Who Are Opposed To Obama’s “Fundamental Transformation” of America Are Guilty of “Quiet Prejudice"
    http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Governm...uiet-Prejudice

    Attorney General Eric Holder, who has suggested that critics of the Obama administration are motivated by race and referred to America as a “nation of cowards” on race issues while blasting Americans who resist more gun control laws, suggested that those opposed to President Barack Obama’s policy agenda of “fundamental transformation” are quietly prejudiced.

    In his Saturday commencement address at Morgan State University, a historically black university in Maryland, Holder said that even though there are no more “separate but equal” laws on the 60th anniversary of the Brown v. Board of Education decision, the “vestiges of state-sanctioned discrimination continue to reverberate across the country even today.”

    He said America is done a disservice when they “trade the noisy discord of honest, tough, and vigorous debate for the quiet prejudice of inaction – and the cold silence of consent.” To Holder, dialogue is insufficient to address the “hidden” racism in society but is “a necessary first step that must lead to action.”

    After comparing Obamacare to the Civil Rights Act of 1965, Holder suggested that those opposed to Obama’s “year of action” are silently displaying their prejuxdices and suggested that “action” is needed in voting rights, school discipline, and criminal justice reform.
    In other words, if you disagree with Oblahblah's policies, you are a racist.


    And this one's fun:

    Holder Attacks Supreme Court Justice Roberts For Not Being Obsessed With Racism

    Holder swipes at Roberts on race
    http://www.politico.com/blogs/under-...ce-188716.html

    Attorney General Eric Holder took a swipe Saturday at Chief Justice John Roberts’s jurisprudence on the issue of race, arguing that forcing the government to be entirely color-blind isn’t the way to heal America’s racial ills.

    Speaking at commencement exercises for historically-black Morgan State University in Baltimore, Holder alluded to high-profile controversies over racial comments by figures like rancher Clive Bundy and L.A. Clippers owner Donald Sterling, but said that it’s a mistake to think that America’s most serious racial problems stem from repugnant public statements. The attorney general argued that it’s more important to end policies that perpetuate racial differences than to dwell on occasional spurts of racist rhetoric.

    “Chief Justice John Roberts has argued that the path to ending racial discrimination is to give less consideration to the issue of race altogether. This presupposes that racial discrimination is at a sufficiently low ebb that it doesn’t need to be actively confronted. In its most obvious forms, it might be. But discrimination does not always come in the form of a hateful epithet or a Jim Crow-like statute,” Holder declared. “And so we must continue to take account of racial inequality, especially in its less obvious forms, and actively discuss ways to combat it.”

    Holder was referring to Roberts’s plurality opinion in 2007 case which overturned the Seattle public school system’s use of race to improve diversity. “The way to stop discrimination on the basis of race is to stop discriminating on the basis of race,” the chief justice wrote.

    The attorney general made clear again Saturday that he prefers the formulation Justice Sonia Sotomayor offered in her dissent from a Supreme Court ruling last month on Michigan’s affirmative action ban.

    “We must not ‘wish away, rather than confront, the racial inequality that exists in our society. …The way to stop discrimination on the basis of race is to speak openly and candidly on the subject of race,” Holder said, quoting Sotomayor rephrasing Roberts.

    And Moochelle gets into the act:

    Michelle Obama Tells Students To Police Family Members For Racial Insensitivity
    http://www.theblaze.com/stories/2014...insensitivity/

    First lady Michelle Obama is encouraging students to monitor their older relatives, friends and co-workers for any racially insensitive comments they might make, and to challenge those comments whenever they’re made.

    The first lady spoke on Friday to graduating high school students in Topeka, Kansas, and in remarks released over the weekend, Obama said students need to police family and friends because federal laws can only go so far in stopping racism. [...]

    To address these limitations in the law, Obama asked students to take steps to “drag my generation and your grandparents’ generation along with you” in the fight against racism.

    “Maybe that starts simply in your own family, when grandpa tells that off-colored joke at Thanksgiving, or you’ve got an aunt [that] talks about ‘those people,’” she said. “Well, you can politely inform them that they’re talking about your friends.

    And Geithner (although in his case, it's deflection from a question about Big Banks)

    Geithner: ‘How Well You Do in Life ... Depends Too Much on the Color of Your Skin’
    http://cnsnews.com/news/article/mela...olor-your-skin

    Former Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner on CBS’s “Face the Nation” Sunday said how well one does in life “depends too much on the color of your skin and how rich your parent is.”

    “How well you do in life today, how good your education is, how good your health care is, depends too much on the color of your skin and how rich your parent is. And that’s something that should worry all Americans,” said Geithner. “Now, those are things government can do things about.

    Geithner was promoting his book, “Stress Test: Reflections on Financial Crises,” which went on sale last week.

    Host Bob Schieffer asked him what he would say to people like Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), who say “our whole system is rigged to help the big banks and the rich people, and that, in her view, is why the middle class is suffering.”...

    (Obviously, he'll trot out racism.)

    It's been said time and again that this administration has set race relations back decades, and it's an intentional thing with them.

    The racists in the Obama Administration don't have a clue what they are talking about.
    They do realize this isn't the '60's anymore, don't they?
    MLK must be turning over in his grave.
    Obama isn't the problem. The problem is an electorate that would vote a man like him into office.

    I do believe this. I think it's a divide and conquer strategy. Those in power are always afraid of rebellion from the masses, especially if the masses join together to overthrow the bastards, as they did in the Revolutionary War. If they can keep whites and blacks at odds with weird race theories, then the juntas in power can keep power.

    BTW, didn't Eric Holder have some role during the Oklahoma City bombing back in the 90s?

    I've seen articles linking him to something similar to Fast and Furious with regards to the OKC bombing, but no really hard facts.
