A Nation of Cowards

You have to give Attorney General Eric Holder credit...I mean, here is the single most undistinguished person to ever hold the position of AG, a man who spent most of his career as little more than Bill Clinton's sock puppet, one of the few Americans who has set free dedicated terrorists to attack and kill more Americans, and he's telling us we're "a nation of cowards?" This from The Swamp
Eric Holder, the nation's first African-American attorney general, addressed the employees of the Justice Department on the occasion of Black History Month today with an assessment that, on matters of race, America remains "essentially a nation of cowards,'' in some ways not much better than it looked 50 years ago.

Look around the shopping mall on a Saturday, he suggested - one of the "race-protected cocoons'' where segregation persists.

Provocative words from the administration of the first African-American president, Barack Obama, one who campaigned not as a black man but as an agent of "change,'' yet who nonetheless presented the United States with an historic test - the election of a black president. During the campaign, Obama directly confronted the question of race with an address calling for fulfillment of that "more perfect union.''

"Though this nation has proudly thought of itself as an ethnic melting pot, in things racial we have always been and I believe continue to be, in too many ways, essentially a nation of cowards," said Holder, a former federal judge whom Obama made the nation's chief law enforcement officer.

"We, as average Americans, simply do not talk enough with each other about race,'' said Holder, urging people of all races to use Black History Month as a platform for honest discussion of racial matters, including disparities in health care, education and income.
Hard to believe, huh? As an average American, I'd love to talk to A.G. Holder about race. Here's what I'd say: "We have a black President...there is one coward in the room, bubba, and it's you. Who arranged for rich boy Marc Rich to walk? Who drafted the paper to release the FALN terrorists, who didn't even ask for pardons? Who has spent his entire second-rate legal career trying to pretend the Second Amendment doesn't exist?" Hope and change...what a load of crap!

Although speaking and handling themselves better than Al Sharpton, in fact America is responsible for having brought to power a collection of hack politicians and hangers on that believe no differently than the good Reverend. A world full of victims. A world that can never overcome any flaw or slight. A world that needs to infantilize the populus.

Remember, it was white America that elected them. No one else to blame. No one else to blame.

It must seriously suck to be known as the first African American AG in the administration of the first African American President, and after a line of
the first African American Secretary of Commerce
the first African American Surgeon General
the first African American Secretary of State,
the first African American (female) Secretary of State

and on and on and on. Honestly, this guy screams loser. Wanna bet he gets wedgies in the Cabinet meetings?

You know, nj_l, I agree with you 100%.

A lot of Americans thought they were buying the Messiah when what they got was a cheeseball hack from the cesspool of American politics, and he brought along a whole trick bag of hacks, whores, pimps and gutter trash.
It's gonna be a long 4 years!

MB, The only part I disagree with is the 4 years. Unfortunately, it may be forever. When things are ruined, that's how long that lasts. They are set to ruin everything and they've already started.

Yes, we should have open and honest discussions about race. In your next staff meeting, share your feelings with your coworkers about Diversity programs and multiculturalism vs assimilation; perhaps even share your thoughts on making English the official language of the US, or why it is important to allow public religious displays at Christmas. Of course you will then be reported to HR and summarily dismissed, perhaps even indicted under speech laws that are being considered as I speak, but perhaps Eric Holder will be impressed by your courage and mete out a pardon for you.

I concur. the mushroom I also concur with your comment. said...

People keep saying that it's going to be a long four years, but so far it's been extremely entertaining. Time flies when you're having fun. The Obamawannagunban Circus is a barrel of laughs - they've got more clowns than Ringling Brothers! I have to wonder if they have the political strength to move at all on guns. Not saying that they won't, but they'd take quite a hit if they did, and they aren't doing so well to begin with.

Yes, it is a load of crap.

A black man can rise to the position of attorney general and then has the nerve to complain about the views towards race in this country.... OOoooooh the irony is delicious. Does he know that we have a black president???

Mark my words... Obama is going to divide this country in a way that you never thought possible.... he will not heal race relations in this country.... he will set the black community back 50 years.
