With L.A. near rioting, A.G. Holder inflames America

eric holder

Surely, U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder remembers the 1992 Los Angeles riots, in which 53 people were killed and more than 2,000 injured. They occurred after the cops in the Rodney King beating were found innocent. (In a double jeopardy travesty of justice, they later were tried a second time by the federal government and two were found guilty.)

After George Zimmerman was found not guilty of killing Trayvon Martin, officials should be calling for calm. Already, the Los Angeles Times reported, “About 350 Los Angeles Police Department officers swarmed the Crenshaw district after groups of youths broke away from a peaceful protest in Leimert Park and stomped on cars, broke windows, set fires and attacked several people. Among those attacked were a television reporter and his cameraman, according to law enforcement authorities.”

But in addressing the national convention in Florida today of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People, instead he inflamed the country. Reported the WSJ:

“Attorney General Eric Holder attacked ‘stand-your-ground laws’ three days after the acquittal of a man in last year’s shooting of an unarmed Florida teen, saying in a speech that such laws encourage more violence than they prevent….

“Mr. Holder denounced laws that permit a person to use force in self-defense without first attempting to retreat from the situation.

“‘Separate and apart from the case that has drawn the nation’s attention, it’s time to question laws that senselessly expand the concept of self-defense and sow dangerous conflict in our neighborhoods,’ Mr. Holder said. It was the first time the attorney general criticized such laws publicly, and by raising the issue in a speech largely about Mr. Martin’s death, he suggested a connection between the shooting and the enactment of such laws.

“Mr. Holder drew sustained applause when he declared, ‘We must stand our ground to ensure that our laws reduce violence and take a hard look at laws that contribute to more violence than they prevent.'”

He said “separate and apart from the case” because Zimmerman and his defense team didn’t use the “stand your ground” defense because they didn’t have to. Martin punched Zimmerman in the nose, then jumped on him and smashed his head into the concrete until Zimmerman shot Martin.

Yet Holder obviously was using the Martin-Zimmerman tragedy to advance the Obama-Holder agenda of attacking our Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms — and to defend ourselves. They want us naked before attackers.

Yet Holder himself is surrounded by armed guards. And when he leaves office, the former corporate attorney quickly will become a multimillionaire — through book deals, speechs and sitting on corporate boards — who will be able to hire private, armed guards. And Obama, of course, will have Secret Service protection for the rest of his life.

The rest of us don’t have such a privileged and protected life. We’re on our own to defend ourselves.

I hope the L.A. situation calms down. But if another deadly riot ensues, we’ll know who incited it.

    Shamelessly opportunistic race hustlers like Holder and Obama need to keep the fires of racial animosity and mistrust burning to increase minority voter turnout in 2014. It’s all a disgraceful and manipulative political game to these tyrannical creeps.

    Anyone who has even a rudimentary understanding of Stand Your Ground Laws knows that their purpose is not to reduce violence. The real purpose is to protect individuals who defend themselves from being destroyed by the kind of overzealous and unethical conduct exhibited by Zimmerman’s prosecutors. Eric Holder is a racially divisive, lying creep and a despicable thug who disgraces his office every day.

    Ask yourself this question – Do police have a duty to retreat rather than defend themselves from imminent harm? Of course not! What’s good enough for our “public servants” ought to be good enough for us.

    Holder is a real piece of work. He has covered up the murder of Kenny Trentidue for years now, working to hide the men the beat him to death. He failed to prosecute the Black panther racist for using a weapon to people from voting and then allows the same racist to elicite the murder of Zimmermann for a $10,000 bounty.

    Just like Skdog, this POS thinks only costume clad RAGWUS feeders should be able to shoot attackers, or non-attackers for that matter and all the while be able to use drones when they feel the urge.

    This is the worst AG in the history of the United States, and the most awful since my life began on this planet!! 🙂

    If only Holder were just a piece of work, Donkey. For example, Tommy Lasorda was a piece of work, but the only thing hanging in the balance was a baseball game.

    With Holder it’s far more serious.

    Stand your ground had no bearing on the Trayvon Martin case. Zimmerman was on his back getting pummeled by Trayvon. He had go where to go backwards except on thru the planet earth to China.
    Many times in self defense, where you are standing is the best place for your defense. Forcing you to ‘retreat’ to a worse place to defend yourself is insane and taking the side of the criminals. And the criminals can and do sue people for such things.
    This is simply Holder and Obama taking the side of the Charley Mansons of this world.

    Bottom line, if fatboy cop wannabe Zimmerman wasn’t allowed to pack a gun then young trey Martin would still be alive!! Florida needs to take a serious look at their gun laws! Fatboy Zimmerman picked a fight with a 17year old kid then murdered him!!! Just like o.j, this will catch up to the murderer Zimmerman, hopefully in civil court. All Zimmerman needed to do was listen to the 911 dispatcher and leave Martin alone.

    ntheoc, I agree that Zimmerman should have minded his own business, and that Martin should have just kept walking and not tried to beat him to death, but Zimmerman having a gun is a Constitutional right. You feed off the publics dime and have an obligation to defend the Bill of Rights, but you are too stupid to understand the concept!! 🙂

    No it’s not a constitutional right for everyone and Zimmerman is a prime example of why!!!

    Well ntheoc it must be that ged that prevents you from understanding the Bill of Rights, or maybe it is because you are riding on the left end of the Bell Curve.

    Typical of all left leaning RAGWUS feeders when they have no argument then play the Race card, but it won’t work on this Ameican Indian white man! 🙂
