'My People' and the American People Eric Holder Serves

House Republicans need to put another item on their to-do list: ask Attorney General Eric Holder for his resignation ASAP.

Two years ago he insulted every American when he called us "a nation of cowards." Yesterday in front of a House Appropriations Committee Hearing he all but admitted he's not about to honor the Pledge of Allegiance's promise of "justice for all." Holder brought his $28.2 billion budget request before the lawmakers and got to witness just how willing some people are to have a discussion about race.

The un-cowardly Texas Rep. John Culberson called Holder out on the DOJ's reverse racism regarding the New Black Panther Party's intimidation of white voters in Philadelphia on Election Day in 2008:

"There is clearly evidence-overwhelming evidence-that your Department of Justice refuses to protect the rights of anybody other than African-Americans to vote."

The congressman questioned whether the race of the members of the anti-white fringe group played a role in the department's 2009 decision to dismiss most of a civil lawsuit against them.

Culberson pressed on quoting the former Democratic poll watcher, Bartle Bull who described the NBP's actions as "the most blatant form of voter intimidation he had ever seen."  That brought out the worst in Holder who then made Culberson's case for him:

Think about that...When you compare what people endured in the South in the 60s to try to get the right to vote for African Americans, to compare what people subjected to that with what happened in Philadelphia, which was inappropriate. . .  to describe it in those terms I think does a great disservice to people who put their lives on the line for my people.

"My people?" Holder needs to go.
