They don't believe in America

Eric Holder was born in the Bronx at a great time to be a black American. Second-class citizenship ended when he was 13. After graduating from Stuyvesant High School, he went on to Columbia University, followed by Columbia Law School. By the time he graduated in 1976, he had interned at the NAACP and the U.S. Attorney's office.

Holder would become the first black attorney general, having been appointed by the first black president.

And yet, Holder tweeted sarcastically, "Exactly when do you think America was great?"



Mike Pence responded with pictures of Washington crossing the Delaware, Marines raising the flag at Iwo Jima, Neil Armstrong planting the flag in the moon, and Martin Luther King delivering the "I Have a Dream" speech.

Holder knows better.

Two of those events happened in his lifetime, one when he was 11 and one when he was 18.

On top of that, Holder's bachelor's degree is in American history.

Holder is a sneering cynic who hates America, which is odd since this nation has done so much for him. On top of everything, he was a federal judge.

Part of the reason for his hatred of country may be because he has seen America's seamier side having served in two Democrat administrations. He wrote the pardon that billionaire fugitive from justice Marc Rich bought with a million dollar donation to Clinton's library.

Holder's bitterness toward the country resonates throughout Washington and the Democrat Party. They see Americans as rubes. Holder and the rest portray the nation as irredeemably racist, genocidal, and intolerant.

If true, why do they want to live here? They should move far, far away.

They are an unhappy lot. I know if they got everything they demanded, they still would not be happy. Spoiled children never are.

We have a great country. I know because it survived eight years of hate in the White House by Holder's boss.

  3. The last few years have been aggravating to us Trump partisans, and it’s natural to celebrate our victory. But, beyond that, it has been a time of testing for our great country. After all, we wouldn’t WANT to be led by a foreign agent. It would be awful for America to have a criminal as President. And now, however unfair the process may have been, and however much damage some innocent (and some guilty) people have suffered, we know we have been tried and met our test.

    What a great day for America! And what a lot all of us have to celebrate and be thankful for! The loyal opposition — the Dems — can say with clean hearts how happy they are that our country and our President are free of stain. And then they can get back to work to make America great — in whatever way that means to them.

    As for the Schiffy disloyal opposition — may they rot in hell.

    1. A wonderful post. Unfortunately, the Dems' hatred of Trump is so white hot that they cannot see straight. They will never accept Trump's innocence. They will will never give up.

  4. And he was replaced by another first, Loretta Lynch, the first black female AG, appointed by the first female somewhat black president.
    BTW, worthless Willie was our first black prez, HiLlARy said so.

  5. Holder is the only cabinet member in history to be held in contempt of congress yet he kept his job and stayed out of jail.

    He doesn't think THAT was great?

  6. "...And so many of the blessings and advantages we have, so many of the reasons why our civilization, our culture, has flourished aren't understood; they're not appreciated. And if you don't have any appreciation of what people went through to get, to achieve, to build what you are benefiting from, then these things don't mean very much to you. You just think, well, that's the way it is. That's our birthright. That just happened. [But] it didn't just happen. And at what price? What grief? What disappointment? What suffering went on? I mean this. I think that to be ignorant or indifferent to history isn't just to be uneducated or stupid. It's to be rude, ungrateful. And ingratitude is an ugly failing in human beings."--David McCullough

    1. Some of the newer historians of (ancient) philosophy at the University of Cambridge have concluded that absence of gratitude is the origin of all corruption. The argument is that if you are successful but not grateful for that success you are more likely to resort to dishonest means to achieve more wealth and power than your success demanded or even deserved in the first place. This thesis could easily apply to both Holder and his more than rotten boss. Both of them were not only ungrateful but both sought to claim that since they had been denied even more "success" by their opponents they had the right to oppress them to get revenge. McCullough is right.

  7. Ah yes...Eric “When they go low, we kick em” Holder and his creepy faux-Hitler stache. If America was never great, Eric, then Africa damn sure was a mega shithole. Take a sucka that, Eric.

  8. In what other country could a man who grew up speaking Gullah as a first language, poverty stricken, and in the South before the civil rights revolution, end up as a judge on the highest court in the nation?

    The thing that Holder and his ilk reject is that the United States is not a country in the sense that Great Britain, France, or Germany are. This is a county founded on the idea that it is not ethnicity or nationality that matters. Maybe I can a French or German citizen (though why the hell would I want to), but I cannot be a Frenchman or a German. That is why this country has been great since its founding.

    Sure there have been missteps along the way. But if you buy into the idea of America, you are an American. That is the greatness of the United States.

    BTW, the idea that a man who arranged for a pardon for a notorious fugitive, was held in contempt of Congress, and under whose watch Border Agent Brian Terry was killed because of a program I authorized is entitled to lecture anyone on the greatness of this country is offensive.

  9. Well, you might be a more-authentic-than-thou Frenchman or German if you come in as a Muslim refugee.

  10. I have taken to calling the Left/Liberals/Progressives, etc. The Darkness. They are more than simple Communists and classical Leftists (goes all the way back to classical Greek philosophy). They are akin to the unspeakable evil dealt with in the epic Ramayana, which Tolkein tried to recapitulate in fiction with the Trilogy.

    Anyhow, how you like it: The Darkness.

    1. No one is beyond redemption unless they refuse redemption because they consider it unnecessary. Jesus calls sinners not the righteous. If you believe you don't need it, it will not be forced on you.

    2. Yep. They have gone to the dark side.

  11. Holder is a true "elitist" perhaps in his own mind.

  12. Holder -- and his boss -- are both worthless assholes. I've long since quit caring at all about anyone's objection to the election of Donald Trump. He *likes* the country he sought to lead, and that above all else qualifies him in a way that these two asswipes and their entire political party could never be.

  13. Maybe he should travel to Normandy and tour the cemetery there, and then talk to the French townspeople who still, to this day, revere the Americans for fighting for their freedom 75 years ago.

    A friend of mine is making a documentary about exactly this and has traveled there several times in the last couple of years. I’ve seen the pictures and read the stories. See https://www.normandystories.com/

    2. Visited that region of France when I was in the USAF serving in Germany, on tour with my folks. We found a hotel where the proprietor would not let us pay for our drinks, then he joined us for dinner, also on him.

      He said many times that the Americans saved him and his family in WWII, and that nothing was too good for us! I still have a hard time believing that happened, but there are photos, so I didn't dream it!

  14. America is greatest when Michelle Obama is unproud of America. Eric Holder knows this.
