Eric Holder Unveils Grievance Stimulus Act

President Obama's Attorney General has settled into his new position. Previously Eric Holder was second in command at Justice during the Clinton Administration, and was known as a 'yes man' who eagerly shredded his moral credibility by pushing through his president's pardons for FALN terrorists. When the news broke about that travesty, he was as unapologetic as the freed terrorists were. It says a lot about him. So when he declared during a speech yesterday that America is a nation of cowards because it's unwilling to deal with racial issues, the insult comes off as so graceless that one wonders if Mr. Holder was reading from Reverend Wright's Sunday notes. In the Obama administration, he might be the thug with the Bush-like ability to be doltishly sagacious. Following are comments from the Black History Month speech to employees at the Department of Justice:

"Though this nation has proudly thought of itself as an ethnic melting pot, in things racial, we have always been and we -- I believe continue to be in too many ways essentially a nation of cowards,"

"It is an issue we have never been at ease with and, given our nation's history, this is in some ways understandable," Holder said. "If we are to make progress in this area, we must feel comfortable enough with one another and tolerant enough of each other to have frank conversations about the racial matters that continue to divide us."

"The fact that we have an African-America attorney general, and African-American president, I think is extremely significant. But it is not an indication that all the problems that we've confronted as a nation over the years are now resolved."

Mr. Holder, the first black attorney general, told Justice Department employees that "this nation has still not come to grips with its racial past" and suggested Black History Month could be used to spark more candid discussion of racial issues.

"This will be, at first, a process that is both awkward and painful, but the rewards are, I believe, potentially great." Mr Holder said. "The alternative is to allow to continue the polite, restrained mixing that now passes as meaningful interaction but that in reality accomplishes very little."

"Though race-related issues continue to occupy a significant portion of our political discussion, and though there remain many unresolved racial issues in this nation, we, average Americans, simply do not talk enough with each other about race."

More specifically, Mr. Holder told reporters after the event that he will help put his words into action by revitalizing the department's civil rights division.

How one can ever trust Mr. Holder to recognize "justice" or "moral strength" when he considers a nation that fought it's bloodiest war ending slavery "a nation of cowards" is a mystery. From the underground railroad to the marches for civil rights, to the reparations of affirmative action and generational welfare, to the institution of race based regulations in sports and the imposition of "polite, restrained mixing" (political correctness) throughout American culture to protect the self esteem of minorities; the only thing anyone can rightly argue is cowardly is America's submission to a guilt ridden ethos that patronizes minorities and eschews assimilation. White guilt breeds a perspective that dismisses the havoc wreaked by liberal social policy on African-Americans by blaming poverty and racism for skyrocketing illegitimacy and crime, and then argues that such a culture is not dysfunctional, it's just different. Why would anyone argue such a thing? Some say it's because leftists couldn't care any less about the people trapped in that dysfunctional culture, but I'd say it's because they think they're doing minorities a favor by infantilizing them.

Mr. Holder insists we need to talk more about race, but there's a good reason why that's not going to happen. Most Americans avoid discussions of race because nothing is accomplished when the liberal across from you answers every "candid discussion" with "You're a racist." The left in this country has avoided adult conversations on the sensitive issues of race, choosing instead to stoke resentment and accuse enemies of believing racism doesn't exist. Any "frank conversation" about crime or education, drug use or rap music - name any issue - are answered by assailing the character of anyone who doesn't agree with their political prescriptions. Against affirmative action? "You're a racist." Don't believe that black crime is a consequence of racist cops? "You're a racist." Think rap music is misogynistic and glorifies violence? "You're a racist." You argue that liberal programs have decimated communities and undermined the opportunities of generations of black Americans? "You're nostalgic for a time before liberal programs when they hung blacks from trees." People of all colors avoid discussing race because as a nation we're not mature enough to do so constructively. Mr. Holder, along with his race hustling enablers on the left, is the reason why this nation doesn't talk about race.

But beyond the urge to exploit the guilt complex of Americans in a facetious attempt to bring the races closer together, focusing on our racial differences rather than recognizing the commonalities that unite us is a typical leftist ploy for political power. The Democratic party has successfully balkanized Americans into interest groups - and it pits them against each to keep the air of desperation hovering above them until it's time to vote against those evil Republicans. When our attorney general antagonizes Americans as "cowards", he's in actuality using code-speak to activists nationwide, signaling that he's re-opening the gates to the grievance industry. Unlike the Bush administration, who he condemns for ignoring the plight of poverty pimps and shake-down artists, the Obama administration is announcing that America is once again open to exploitation. It's the Grievance Stimulus Act, and it's being led by a black president and his black attorney general against the crisis of " a nation that has not come to grips with its racial past." The irony couldn't be thicker, but we're talking about an industry that is too shameless to fail. Everyone in favor of bailing out Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson, open your wallets!

Unless you don't want to repeat the failed racial policies of the Old Left. Then the conversation is over, and you're a racist.

    Michelle Malkin was even blunter. "Funny. When I think of racial cowards, I think of Barack Obama at Jeremiah Wright's church, sitting there week after week, year after year, saying nothing about the separatist demagoguery echoing from the pulpit to the pews."

    "Holder doesn't want an honest dialogue about race.

    As they are in so many other areas of life, chief among our American cowards are the representatives of the national political media. During the presidential campaign, there was a maniacal effort on the part of the national media to find whites who would not vote for Barack Obama, never mind the reasoning for choosing so. Whites who were not for Mr. Obama were automatically racist in outlook and action, you see.

    While I might have chosen different words, I can’t fault him for what he said because he was simply addressing an issue that still permeates throughout our society, one we all face every day of our lives regardless of the color of our skin, and one we have collectively become afraid to talk about.

    In a speech he gave for Black History Month, Attorney General Eric Holder called America a nation of cowards when it comes to discussing racial matters in a frank manner. In light of the fact that many white voters were instrumental in helping to elect the nation's first African-American president, I can't think of a more incongruous speech nor a more inopportune time for making such comments, ironically, coming out of the mouth of the nation's first African-American Attorney General.

    Attorney General Eric Holder thinks Americans are “a nation of cowards” on matters of race. This is the same Holder who kowtowed to Bill Clinton to help secure Clinton’s pardon of fugitive financier Marc Rich. And the same Holder who prostrated himself to Hillary Clinton’s political ambitions by helping arrange pardons for 16 Puerto Rican terrorists. Now, he has the nerve to call the rest of us cowards, even as he speaks as the man who controls the entire federal law-enforcement apparatus? Quite

    Racism would be nothing more than a footnote in our history to teach our future generations the ugliness of racism while helping them respect all who they interact with. Mr. Holder, have you ever seen a playground full of children from many races interact? They play together, they have fun, there is shared laughter, and there is no sign of your 'American instinct' of division until someone like you comes along and slanders their joy with your narrow bias.

    Mr. Holder, to make change in our cowardice, why don't you do something that you may well have the power to do as Attorney General. Outlaw Black History Month. Is there any more divisive, racist, separatist event in our country than Black History Month?
