Eric Holder Warns Against Anti-Muslim Backlash

From the Politico:

Holder warns against Boston bombing backlash

By JOSH GERSTEIN | April 29, 2013

Attorney General Eric Holder declared Monday that the Justice Department is on the lookout for acts of violence or discrimination that signal a backlash to the Boston Marathon bombings earlier this month in which three people were killed and scores wounded…

Shouldn’t Eric Holder have apologized for his department, which includes much of the US counter-terrorism forces, letting this attack happen in the first place? Perhaps if they weren’t so worried about offending Muslims, they might have been keeping closer tabs on the Tsarnaev family.

And shouldn’t Mr. Holder be spending his time trying to figure out how his department screwed up again?

"Our investigation into this matter remains ongoing – and I want to assure you that my colleagues and I are determined to hold accountable, to the fullest extent of the law, all of those who were responsible for this attack," Holder said, according to the prepared text of a speech delivered Monday to the Anti-Defamation League.

This from the man who allowed the FBI interrogations of Jokar Tsarnaev to be cut off at 16 hours, instead of at the very least 48 hours. (Which, in fact, could have been forever, if the DOJ had chose.)

Which stopped Jokar from giving any further information that could have been gleaned for the safety of the American people.

"But I also want to make clear that – just as we will pursue relentlessly anyone who would target our people or attempt to terrorize our cities – the Justice Department is firmly committed to protecting innocent people against misguided acts of retaliation."

[Holder continued] "In the dozen years since 9/11, this commitment has led the department to investigate more than 800 incidents involving threats, assaults, and acts of vandalism and violence targeting Muslims, Arabs, Sikhs, South Asians, and others who are perceived to be members of these groups."

How many of these alleged incidents have ever panned out as real "retaliation"? We can’t recall a single one. And we suspect if any had, we would never hear the end of it.

"As Americans, we must not allow any group to be stigmatized or alienated.  We must not tolerate acts of hatred.  And we must reaffirm every day – through our actions as well as our approach – that justice and public safety are not in tension.  They rely upon one another."

"Let us…resolve once more to help our fellow citizens to meet fear with reason," Holder told the ADL… "This is how we will honor the victims of the Boston Marathon bombings. Let us strive to confront ignorance with information. This is how we will strengthen the American family. And let us promote understanding, encourage open dialogue, and divert suspicious or prejudiced gazes with outstretched hands. This is how we will overcome adversity, and transform today’s pain into tomorrow’s progress."

This from the man who has been giving endless speeches about the evils of gun owners and the NRA. Who even enacted Fast & Furious, to try to demonize gun owners.

This from a man who has spread endless lies about evil Republicans trying to disenfranchise black voters with voter ID laws.

    Sadly, Holder is one of those people so totally blinded by his own bigotry that it has left him crippled and unable to see the world objectively. Even his own high status doesn’t serve as “reparations’ for his imagined grievances against whitey.

    When he’s riding around in his limo and looks out the window at his fellow racists who have had poverty inflicted upon them by an ever overreaching government, he shakes his head and blames whitey for it. Anger is a curious animal but its general feature is that it prevents a person from thinking clearly. Holder is such a case.

    His idea of injustice and an objective, sterile definition of same are worlds apart. He could not go to Africa, say, and look upon a militia, armed with machetes and hate in their souls and begin to understand what they’re doing wrong. In fact, if he were in a parallel universe, finding himself as one of those people, he too would be smiling and waiting for the next opportunity to kill those people “not of his tribe”.

    Perhaps it’s in the DNA; That gene that makes them thus. For without an enemy, there seems no reason for blacks to exist. Always angry, self-abusive, usually grouping together with like-minded people and killing.

    Holder is his own version of a “power player” which, in simplest terms is nothing more than a gang-leader who dictates how to take people down and why. This is why the Constitution and “white man’s law” mean nothing to him. He is another black man filled with rage and cannot see how foolish he looks, even (and especially) while in the midst of it.

    Massachusetts is the Headquarters for Islamic terrorists since 1993. This is the most liberal state in the Union. No wonder Islamist’s picked this state for their headquarters. They gravitate to the weakest link in the Union and now they are paying for this in their lives of little kids along with arms and legs. Being liberal and having Socialist Senators and Governors brings the state to its knees.
