Anytime Attorney General Eric Holder or the President is criticized, Holder loves to play the race card. In fact, he recently implied that anybody who opposes Obama’s “Year of Action” is a racist.
Now he’s playing the race card again. In a recent speech he said, “There’s a certain level of vehemence, it seems to me, that’s directed at me (and) directed at the president. You know, people talking about taking their country back. … There’s a certain racial component to this for some people. I don’t think this is the thing that is a main driver, but for some there’s a racial animus.”
Radio talk-show host Larry Elder (who happens to be black) points out that there’s nothing racist at all about wanting to “take the country back.” In fact, it seems to be a favorite call to action among Democrats…
Then-presidential candidate Howard Dean, 2003: “Today, we stand in common purpose to take our country back!”
Then-presidential candidate Sen. John Kerry, 2004: “To take back our country … ”
Sen. Charles Schumer, N.Y., 2006: “We are going to take our country back!”
Then-presidential candidate Sen. Barack Obama, 2007: “It’s going to be because of you that we take our country back.”
Then-presidential candidate Sen. Hillary Clinton, 2008: “To make sure we take our country back … ”
New Mexico’s Gov. Bill Richardson, 2008: “Are you ready to take our country back?”
Then-Minnesota senatorial candidate Al Franken, 2008: “This is the year we take our country back.”
Wow, look at all that racism! There’s so much, one wonders when Holder will start accusing his own party of racism against himself and President Obama.
