Eric Holder Was Right 11/14/13

Eric holder, shortly after he was sworn in as the nation’s first black Attorney General, said America was “a nation of cowards” because we weren’t having a “national conversation” about race issues.  At the time, I thought, “Wow! He’s got that one right.”

I also thought: “Of course, guilty white liberals have been kissing your butt for so long, Mr. Holder, you wouldn’t recognize an honest conversation about race issues. You should spend some time with Thomas Sowell, Walter Williams, Star Parker and a half-dozen other blacks I could name.”

I suspected Holder didn’t want that kind of “national conversation” though.  He wanted one where everybody blamed whitey for all of black America’s ills, and where everybody agreed to continue affirmative action, increase welfare spending,  raise the minimum wage and continue all the other programs that have been so destructive  to black Americans.

In other words, he wanted to continue to keep blacks on “Uncle Sam’s Plantation,” to borrow the title of Star Parker’s remarkable book.  The prescient LBJ must be looking up with a smile on his face. (Google: “Kessler Inside the White House”  for LBJ’s memorable quote on the political future of black America.)

I hoped I was wrong about Attorney General Holder and that the presidency of Barrack Obama would mark the beginning of a “post racial” America. How silly of me. Under Obama, racial tensions have worsened and our cowardice continues unchecked.

For instance, when President Obama said, “If I had a son, he’d look like Trayvon (Martin),” nobody in the mainstream media, NOBODY, had the guts to call him a race-baiting, divisive demagogue.  NOBODY called him to task for weighing in, very inappropriately, with a gratuitous, stupid remark on a case yet to go to trial.

Gee, Mr. President, would your son have ACTED like Trayvon?  Isn’t that the question Martin Luther King would have asked? Any other President would have been justly excoriated, but not our first black president. Oh, no, mustn’t criticize Barack Obama, lest you be accused of being a racist.  Cowards, that’s what we are, and we have a long history of being race-cowards.

Why, for instance, is there only one Jesse Jackson in jail, Jesse Jackson, Jr.? Why hasn’t Jackson senior been put on trial for being the “Godfather of Shakedowns,” to use the phrase from Harry Stein’s book, “No matter what….they’ll call this book racist.”

Why hasn’t Jackson’s organization, Rainbow/Push, been audited by the IRS in over 18 years?  Are they too busy with Tea Party groups?  We all know why, don’t we?  We’re cowards.

Nowhere is this cowardice more on display than on MSNBC, where the Reverend Al Sharpton hosts a one-hour show, PoliticsNation.   Sharpton, a race-baiting, anti-Semitic moron, was called a “trusted White House adviser” on 60 Minutes (5/19/11.)  He and President Obama can be seen in a smiling, arm- around- shoulder pictures if you Google “Obama Sharpton photo.”

To get a better perspective on the Reverend Al, Google up “Sharpton Tawana Brawley”, “Sharpton Crown Heights”, and “Sharpton Freddy’s Fashion Mart.”  Having this guy as a “trusted White House advisor” is comparable to having David Duke in a similar role for a white president.  The press would be apoplectic.

President Obama’s Sharpton connections shouldn’t surprise anyone who was paying attention to Obama’s history.  The Reverend Jeremiah Wright, a racist worthy of a black-sheeted KKK, was Obama’s pastor for twenty years.  Oh, I’m not supposed to call a black person a racist because only white people can be racists because only white people have power blah blah blah.  If you believe that, I have a bridge to sell you.
