The Black Caucus Is Staging A Walkout During The Eric Holder Contempt Vote

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.

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.

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.

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?

“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.

Is West a member of the Black Caucus. I doubt if he is, he would go.

This is shades of Wisconsin.

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?

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.

“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”.

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.
