Holder and Hamilton

“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."
-Eirc Holder 2014

Ambition, avarice, personal animosity, party opposition, and 
many other motives, not more laudable than these, are apt to 
operate as well upon those who support as upon those who 
oppose the right side of a question. Were there not even these 
inducements to moderation, nothing could be more illjudged 
than that intolerant spirit, which has, at all times, characterized 
political parties. -Alexander Hamilton 1787

Can you find racists in America? You undoubtedly can. Are some or most of them opposed to Holder's "gun walking" and the President's policy on border enforcement? I would expect so. But so what? Racists are not the rule anymore, they're the exception. They're a tiny minority. Racists support clean drinking water too, that doesn't make clean drinking water a bad thing.

The race card is a red herring, played only to draw attention away from a growing disaster on the border. I can't imagine any parent sending their unaccompanied child into such danger, but they do it, trusting that immigration laws will not be enforced, and that somehow their child will be kept safe. The president has invited this dangerous situation to our doorstep. (and into our foyer)

the actions of the president (not to minimize the one before him) have not just invited this situation, they welcomed it with open arms. the sufferings and deaths of many children are upon their hands as well.

Even Wash Post and other Democratics realize that Obummer's 2012 Executive Order was interpreted as a free pass.

Understanding Eric Holder is easy. Think of him in a hood with a title like, say, Grand Kleagal...and then remember that one of the principle characteristics of so called "Progressives" is projecting their own degeneracy on others.

See. It's simple. I understand him perfectly.

Ray Bradbury:

Daddy where are the Martians?
Look in the water! See them there?

And so Holder and Obama gaze at their own reflections seeking racists.

I'm also reminded of "Something Wicked This Way Comes".
