The Black Caucus Is Staging A Walkout During The Eric Holder Contempt Vote
Jun. 27, 2012, 9:33 PM
The Congressional Black Caucus is planning to stage a walkout during tomorrow's House vote to hold Attorney General Eric Holder in contempt over the Fast and Furious gun-walking scandal, according to a letter that is being circulated among Democratic members of Congress.
We adamantly oppose this partisan attack and refuse to participate in any vote that would tarnish the image of Congress or of an attorney general who has done nothing but work tirelessly to protect the rights of the American people," the Black Caucus members wrote in the letter, which was obtained by several news outlets. We cannot and will not participate in a vote to hold the Attorney General in contempt."
The letter, which was sent to the Hispanic, Asian, and Progressive Caucuses, calls on members to walk off the House floor during tomorrow's vote, and join the Black Caucus for a press conference on the steps of the Capitol Building during the roll call.
The House Rules Committee voted along party lines Wednesday to send the contempt measure to the House floor, designating two hours and 20 minutes for debate Thursday, according to The Hill.

If blacks are expected to obey the laws or follow their statutory duties when they dowanna it’s discrimination, doncha know/sarc
Lock the door behind them, don’t let the corrupt bastards back in, and don’t elect them anymore, they are not worthy of the job.
Tantrums reveal the character of the brat.
If they’re not willing to honestly and objectively look at important charges like this, perhaps they should just keep walking. They clearly are not faithfully upholding their office.
Cry babies...if it doesn’t go their way, they pull the race card.
COLOR is the ONLY thing that matters to balcks....the ONLY thing!!! Very sad.....and they wonder why whites don’t understand them.
Why is Jesse Jackass in that photo? He wasn’t elected to anything that I’m aware of.
Isn’t more like a shuffle?
so a government higerup can organize the murder of people, including Americans, it’s ok if he’s black?
According to these idiots, if Hitler had been black, the Jews would only have gotten what they deserved.
Race excuses EVERYTHING...
the white caucus stays in the chamber to perform its duties...
Thats ok...let em walk.
Actions speak louder than words...and consequences as well.
The White Caucus is staying, doing their job and voting to end this corruption.
May I suggest they keep walking until they reach Africa?
Seems the only thing that matters to the black caucus is the color of Holder’s skin...
There’s a word for people who think like that... can’t remember - starts with an ‘r’... anyone?
Good. Bunch of commie trash. Have them stay away.
What will our man, Allen West, do during this tantrum by the CBC?
“Black Caucus” is defacto a racist group. Imagine the uproar if there was a “white caucus”.
To blacks like these, color is the only thing that matters or that they can talk about. It’s pitiful may the walk-out be permanent.
For people who insist that race is a mythical social construct invented by “the man” to keep them down, these people sure place a lot of emphasis on the colour of their skin.
LOL!!!! When you have no legitimate argument, make it about race. I love these liberals and their staged events. Symbology is SO much more important than substance . . . for Democrats.
Is West a member of the Black Caucus. I doubt if he is, he would go.
This is shades of Wisconsin.
Stop right there.
Don’t let the door hit you in the a$$ on the way out!
In the immortal words of Herman Munster:
So, the racists have decided to throw a tantrum!
If I were in the House of Rep, I would start a White Caucus. It would cost me my seat, but boy oh boy would it be fun.
Bet Allen West isn’t walkin’ out, nor will Jesse Jr. (sick leave) make the walk. That leaves 41 morons showing their arse and REALLY showing who the racists are!!
So the Black Caucus is saying black people should be held to a lower standard? Why? As “reparations”? or because they don’t want black people rising to levels of excellence?
We adamantly oppose this partisan attack and refuse to participate in any vote that would tarnish the image of Congress or of an attorney general who has done nothing but work tirelessly to protect the rights of the American people,”
What a load of lying crap. They aren’t walking out because they think he’s innocent. They’re walking out because he’s black. Holder could be guilty as sin and they would still support him. If Holder was a white liberal, they wouldn’t be walking out.
Das raight. We all stick together in our hate and distrust of whitey.
Are they planning on running to some hotel in Maryland? Seems that’s all the Democrats are good for these days when things don’t go their way.
“AND STAY OUT!”....
Of course, those holding Holder to account aren’t aware of the unspoken rule, one that can’t be spoken without being accused of being racist -
black DEMOCRAT politicians are ENTITLED to be corrupt because of the “legacy of slavery”.
“We don’t care that he is breaking the law, he black so we side with him”
Understand he applied, but there was an issue of acceptance.
If he is a member, he certainly does not support the Racist Commie crap they push.
Bet Allen West and Tim Scott don’t walk out! But, the Communist faction of the CBC will!
hmmm... some similarities here... and a difference. See the white guy in the back right of the second picture?
Yes, Allen West is a member of the CBC. But, I don’t think he’ll be joining the Commies!
The "Race Card" has expired, and this crap is old.
I watched a bit of the hearings yesterday on the process to get to a vote in the house.
Alicee Hastings was preaching to Issa about the process and fairness...
Of all people A IMPEACHED corrupt former Judge.
The CBC...keeping racism alive into the 21st Century!
Wonder if they’ll sing “We Shall Overcome” on their way out??? Muckin’ Forons.
