Every Tuesday, the Council nominates some of the slimiest, most despicable characters in public life for some deed of evil, cowardice or corruption they’ve performed. Then we vote to single out one particular Weasel for special mention, to whom we award the statuette of shame, our special, 100% plastic Golden Weasel. This week’s nominees were all truly slime-worthy and disgusting, but in the end the winner was… the envelope please…
Scofflaw Racist ‘Attorney Generalissimo’ Eric Holder!!
The Independent Sentinel: Eric Holder wants to make it easier to get the white guys in civil rights cases. He is very concerned that he couldn’t get a case together against Officer Wilson and George Zimmerman and has called for Congress to lower the standard of proof.
That’s pretty alarming. The government is going to go after people whether they are guilty or not?
“There is a better way in which we could have federal involvement in these kinds of matters to allow the federal government to be a better backstop in examining these cases [civil rights cases],” Holder said in an NBC News interview Thursday.
“We do need to change the law. I do think the standard is too high,” Holder said in the interview. “There needs to be a change with regard to the standard of proof.”
The Right Planet:: Despite the fact multiple investigations and a grand jury have failed to produce any evidence “racism” played any part in the shooting of Michael Brown by the Ferguson Police Department, AG Eric Holder and his race-obsessed DOJ are hellbent in turning the whole incident into a race crime, i.e. “hate crime” (yeah, huh, imagine that). Now Holder’s DOJ is planning to release a report condemning the Ferguson Police of funding their department with “racist traffic stops.”
Well, Eric Holder has released that report, and aside from his contention that blacks are disproportionally stopped by traffic officers, he managed to find…wait for it…7, count ‘em 7 e-mails that contain admittedly tasteless ethnic jokes. One police officer has already been fired and another suspended without pay for this and the DOJ report essentially gave the city of Ferguson a choice – comply with a number of demands including a quota of minority hires and DOJ monitoring, or face a DOJ lawsuit and a consent degree that would mandate the DOJ’s ‘requests.’
Now perhaps I’m missing something, but the traffic stops and the admittedly declasse’ humor didn’t kill anybody. On the other hand, the death toll from Eric Holder’s Fast And Furious gunrunning caper has already claimed at least 750 lives and counting. So who really ought to be disciplined?
So step up for your statuette, Mr. Holder, If nothing else, you’ve proven we really are cowards when it comes to race in America…especially when it comes to literally getting away with murder.
Well, there it is!
Check back next Tuesday to see who next week’s nominees for Weasel of the Week are!
Make sure to tune in every Monday for the Watcher’s Forum and remember, every Wednesday, the Council has its weekly contest with the members nominating two posts each, one written by themselves and one written by someone from outside the group for consideration by the whole Council. The votes are cast by the Council and the results are posted on Friday morning.
It’s a weekly magazine of some of the best stuff written in the blogosphere and you won’t want to miss it… or any of the other fantabulous Watcher’s Council content.
