Holder Tells Juan Williams: I Am Proud To Be An Activist

From Juan Williams, writing at The Hill:

Holder exclusive — ‘Proud to be an activist’

By Juan Williams – 08/04/14

… Holder spoke with me in Philadelphia after getting a warm reception for a speech to the nation’s criminal defense lawyers…

Despite his bridge-building [with Republicans] [sic], the first black attorney general serving the first black president remains critical of how conservatives managed the Justice Department during the Bush Administration. “In the years, I think, before I came to the attorney general’s office the department lost its way,” he said…

He added: “The justice system is part of the larger society and to the extent there are racial issues we are still grappling with, it is not a shock that you are going to see them in the justice system… [There is] a whole range of ways the justice system, if it is run properly, can make this country the country it wants to be.”

Holder remains indifferent to conservative protests that he is an ‘activist’ looking for trouble by digging into what he calls “policies [with] disproportionate impact on communities of color.”

“If you want to call me an activist attorney general, I will proudly accept that label,” he said. “Any attorney general who is not an activist is not doing his or her job. The responsibility of the attorney general is to change things [and] bring us closer to the ideals expressed in our founding documents.”

Later, he defiantly added that critics who say his department includes an “activist civil rights division and this is an activist attorney general — I’d say I agree with you 1000 percent and [I am] proud of it.” …

Messrs Holder and Obama are no longer community organizers or street agitators. At least they aren’t supposed to be.

In fact, Mr. Holder is admitting to exactly the kind of behavior that any Attorney General (or President) could and should be impeached over.

    So wrong in so many ways. Yet another rotting corpse of checks & balances.
    This administration is putting the word “FUN” in the funeral for this nation.
    FUN-da-mental changes. Stock up and start canning.

    the sole reason this Nation is under the Socialists thumb are;

    1 the Media.

    2 the Media.

    3 the Media.

    Holder and Obama and all the rest of the Marx Brothers could only exist with the Fourth Estates ‘s manipulations.

    Day after day,

    Year after year, Steve’s Forum chronicles the Progressive News with their daily “get out of jail for Liberals ” Journalism.

    the Voters ( The Mob),are not controlled by 1984 Big Brother spy cameras, but theFahrenheit 451 “shallow dramas played on “parlor walls” (flat-panel televisions).

    the 2008, 2010, and 2012 elections prove that Reality and logic ( and Common Sense) are Trumped by Television, Internet, and Print Propaganda Manipulation.

    WE ( the American Voter) put Obama and Boehenr in office.

    If Conservatives and Yes, Tea Party Individuals could ever Consolidate , join forces ( get their SH- T together) maybe …

    But of course it suppose to be this way,

    After WE surrenderd States Rights to the federal government .

    If THAT, the admission, not the smilie, is not immediate grounds for tar and feathering then nothing is.
    Can you imagine if a conservative had said that?
