You can take former Attorney General Eric Holder out of the ghetto but you can’t take the ghetto out of Eric Holder. He admitted as much in 2014 while speaking at a Missouri community college when he said:
“I am the attorney general of the United States. But I am also a black man.”
Whoa! What kind of outrage would reign down on President Trump if he made a similar comment?
Holder’s closely held prejudices become important because he has thrown his hat in the 2020 presidential ring.
Democrats love to charge President Trump with using a dog whistle to send a signal to his base. How do they explain Holder’s words of the past week then?
Holder summoned his “inner ghetto” this week and sent a very clear dog whistle to his base when he verbally challenged Republicans:
“You want to rumble, let’s rumble. You want to have a knife fight, we’re gonna do it.”
Add Holder to the growing list of Democrats who have sent out the word that the use of violence is expected be part of their constituents’ toolbox. In the past week Obama’s former CIA director and his former U.N. ambassador – John Brennan and Samantha Power – both threatened President Trump.
Not to be outdone, congressman Tom Suozzi told the audience at a town hall meeting that Americans who oppose the policies of President Trump should take up arms against him.
None of this should come as a surprise because these Dems are simply responding to our former Manchurian President B. Hussein Obama’s dog whistle from early in his administration:
“If they bring a knife to the fight, we bring a gun,” Obama said in Philadelphia last night. “Because from what I understand, folks in Philly like a good brawl.”
Holder has learned well from Obama. He even lies like Obama did. Remember Obama telling us that the average family would save $2500 on their health insurance premiums? Or, you could keep your doctor? Or … well you get the picture.
Well Holder showed his willingness to lie if it helps him discredit President Trump when he tweeted this:
But Holder was deliberately avoiding the facts surrounding McCabe’s firing, something he was well aware of. The fact is President Trump had no direct role in the firing of the former deputy director of the FBI.
The Obama-appointed Inspector General, Michael Horowitz was nearing the completion of his oversight report when he shared his findings with Robin Ashton who is the head of the Office of Professional Responsibility at the FBI.
The Office of Professional Responsibility is responsible for investigating allegations of professional misconduct involving department attorneys.
After reviewing the facts presented by Horowitz, Ashton decided to recommend the firing of McCabe to Attorney General Jeff Sessions.
Ashton had been appointed to her position, as the head of enforcing ethics at the FBI by none other than Eric Holder.
In making the announcement Holder had praised Ashton:
“As a veteran career prosecutor, Robin is uniquely qualified to serve as Counsel for Professional Responsibility, and I am confident she will lead the office with the highest standards of professionalism, integrity and dedication.”
Frankly, A.G. Sessions would’ve been acting irresponsibly had he not fired McCabe under these circumstances.
Still, look for more Dems to pick up on the call for civil unrest when the co-conspirators at the FBI, the DOJ, and the State Department start being held to account for the Deep State’s criminal defrauding of the United States.
