    Former Attorney General Eric Holder said late Saturday that the "Make America Great Again mindset" is flawed and "rooted in fear." “This sort of thinking, this 'Make America Great' mindset is not only flawed, it’s rooted in fear. And it favors an imagined past over a realistic future," Holder said while speaking at the Human Rights Campaign National Dinner. Holder also questioned what time period people who want to "make America great again" would rewind to if given the chance, referring to President Trump's campaign slogan. ADVERTISEMENT “Certainly it was not when people were enslaved,” he said. “Certainly it was...

    Saturday at the Human Rights Campaign national dinner, former Attorney General Eric Holder gave his perspective on the president's "Make America Great Again" slogan. ... "Every time I hear that phrase I wonder when exactly do they have in mind? What decade? What year?" "Certainly it was not when people were enslaved," the first black attorney general said. "Certainly, it was not when segregation was the law of the land. Certainly, it was not when women were disenfranchised. Certainly, it was not when the LGBT community was routinely stigmatized." He added: "This sort of thinking, this ‘Make America Great’ mindset...

    President Barack Obama compared outgoing Attorney General Eric Holder to Bobby Kennedy, who served in the position during his brother John F. Kennedy's presidency—a comparison Holder made about himself shortly thereafter. “Bobby Kennedy once said, ‘on this generation of Americans falls the full burden of proving to the world that we really mean it when we say all men are created free and equal before the law,'" Obama said at a press conference announcing Holder’s resignation.

    “The fundamental truth [is] that no matter where you live, who you love, or who you are… every human being is, and must be, free and equal in both dignity and [legal] rights,” he told the Swedes. The political goal of equal dignity — just like the socialists’ failed goal of equal wealth — is being used to justify intense federal intrusion in every aspect of Americans’ social lives, such as in the workplace and schoolyards, Facebook pages and sporting events. Holder’s text suggests he opposes the status-distribution norms evolved by Americans, and that he wishes to forcefully redistribute social...

    It is a sad sight to watch a man grapple with a world that fails to meet his expectations. Unless that man is Eric Holder. Then it is simply infuriating. The attorney general, warped by his own prejudice, is confused because his fellow citizens are better people than he imagines. Holder sees white bigots around every corner, and can’t handle the truth that very few Americans actually hate Muslims. So, like Elmer Fudd hunting “wascally wabbits,” Holder’s shots usually backfire. His Monday speech to the Anti-Defamation League was a classic case of twisted thinking. With his FBI fumbling a chance...

    Apparently, granny will still be getting the full pat down experience at the airport instead of young Muslim men returning home from volatile, Jihad ridden regions of the world like Dagestan. Attorney General Eric Holder is warning Americans not to discriminate against Muslims in the aftermath of the Boston Marathon bombings. Attorney General Eric Holder declared Monday that the Justice Department is on the lookout for acts of violence or discrimination that signal a backlash to the Boston Marathon bombings earlier this month in which three people were killed and scores wounded. "Our investigation into this matter remains ongoing –...

    During a April 24th speech to the Mexican American Legal Defense and Educational Fund, Attorney General Eric Holder said that creating a "pathway to earned citizenship" was a "civil right.” "Creating a pathway to earned citizenship for the 11 million unauthorized immigrants in this country is essential. The way we treat our friends and neighbors who are undocumented – by creating a mechanism for them to earn citizenship and move out of the shadows – transcends the issue of immigration status. This is a matter of civil and human rights. It is about who we are as a nation. And...
