It's no surprise that Eric Holder has accused his critics of racially motivated attacks. This is the last refuge of scoundrel black politicos who can't defend themselves on the facts or the merits of their case.
What is surprising is that the Department of Justice isn't playing along.
Attorney General Eric Holder accused his growing chorus of critics of racist motivations in a Sunday interview published in the New York Times. When reached by The Daily Caller Monday morning, the Department of Justice provided no evidence to support the attorney general's claims.
Holder said some unspecified faction - what he refers to as the "more extreme segment" - is driven to criticize both him and President Barack Obama due to the color of their skin. Holder did not appear to elaborate on who he considered to make up the "more extreme segment."
"This is a way to get at the president because of the way I can be identified with him," Holder said, according to the Times. "Both due to the nature of our relationship and, you know, the fact that we're both African-American."
The White House hasn't returned requests for comment on whether President Barack Obama agrees with his top law enforcement officer's allegations of racial motivations.
Holder's accusations come as resignation calls mount from a growing list of 60 congressmen, two senators, every major Republican presidential candidate and two sitting governors, spurred on by the congressional investigation into Operation Fast and Furious.
It is not healthy for the Attorney General of the United States to have a persecution complex, nor to equate his standing with his boss, the president.
If anyone cares to notice, the top law enforcement officer in the land apparently sees most everything through the prism of race. He's also a confirmed liar and perjurer. If that's not enough to demand his resignation - no matter what the color of his skin - then we might as well start hiring convicts to enforce the law.
