Holder Says Civil Rights ‘Under Renewed Threat’ From Conservatives

In an address to the National Council of La Raza convention in Las Vegas on Saturday, Attorney General Eric Holder told the Hispanic advocacy group that the gains of the Civil Rights era were coming “under renewed threat,” and touted the administration’s efforts in protecting the rights of minority groups and immigrants.

“Many of you know this firsthand – and have felt the impact of division, and even discrimination, in your own lives,” said Holder in his address, according to prepared remarks released by the Justice Department.”

The attorney general pledged that the civil rights advocacy group would “never have a more committed partner than the United States Department of Justice” and touted the administration’s record on those issues.

In particular, Holder highlighted the Supreme Court’s ruling last week striking down much of Arizona’s law targeting illegal immigration.

In a 5-3 ruling, the court rejected most provisions of the law, but let stand a key measure allowing police to check the legal status of those stopped on suspicion of committing unrelated offenses.

    CIVIL LRIGHTS!! Don’t make me laugh, Holder. Was it civil rights that had you selling guns to enemies that kills our own people.. What kind of civil rights are those.
    You Traitor.. your only concern is not civil rights for real Americans.. it is for all the illegals you can pull into this country so they can vote for your good buddy Barry.
    Between the two of you you have this country and Washington smelling like a cess pool.

    Civil Rights……..for whom? Illegals getting “more” rights than Hispanics who came to this country LEGALLY, yet their obeying the laws, working to build a life will be TAXED to support those who BROKE THE LAW! Where is the “Justice?” “Ho-dup” Holder is NOT HELPING PEOPLE’S CIVIL RIGHTS………..Does Holder want America to become a country of law breakers, illegal activities, smuggling drugs and violence crossing the border just to get a few votes from people who DID NOT COME HERE LEGALLY. The people need to realize is if the JUSTICE DEPARTMENT DOES NOT ENFORCE THE LAWS THEY FEEL THEY DON’T HAVE TO. What laws will be ignored to further their agenda? They will pick and choose which laws will give them THEIR BEST RETURN…………..how safe are CIVIL RIGHTS FOR EVERYONE, Including the illegalls! Can the illegals TRUST the Justice Department to enforce laws that JUST MAY PROTECT THEM? The people are being USED, like a pawn in a game of chess. Just like chess, pawns can be sacrificed to win the game. You who feel the Justice Department is “working” for you, better wake up. Con men just do what they are…………cons! Enforcement is suppose to be across the board, not here and there. If you are here or there, will the Department of Justice protect both?

    The White House Administration, that includes Obama, Holder, Pelosi, Reed and a whole slew of other ingrates, have sold their soles to Satan to stay in power. You can see and hear the evil emanating from those demonic beings. This is what happens when people stray away from God and pursue idols.

    I wonder if Holder and his ilk ever considered that I, as an American citizen of voting age, have my right to vote, and have it COUNTED, is negated and violated every time a non-citizen, convicted felon, non-resident, and/or 15yr old without photo ID votes without having to prove he/she is even eligible. How can you respect the results of the vote when you have no respect for a very flawed process. Voter ID now.

  5. Erik Osbun says:

    I think Holder is the biggest violator of civil rights. He is under orders from Obama not to enforce some of the laws, and also under orders from Obama to violate some of the laws. I say that law enforcers CANNOT BE law breakers.

  6. David says:

    Eric Holdere along with Obama are racists. They are terrible people. Holdeer will not charge Blacks with crimes against whites. Example New Black Panthers who Obama invites to the WH. He must defeat Obama to remain free. Read The Great Destroyer, David Limbaugh and afterwards you will have a better idea of how bad Obama and his gang or radicals are.

  7. CJONE says:

    Amreica is under threats from Holder and Obama and his thugs!! Vote them out!

  8. howard says:

    Government by outlaws is what you get when 50% plus voters elect a Barack Hussein Obama to head the USA. Hopefully they are not so stupid as to repeat this travesty of deceit and lawlessness , but when you look around you really have to wonder if the country is dumbing down to Obama s level.

  9. ginjitdw says:

    The individual mandate is an attack on civil rights….. This guy is extremely dangerous. Next it’s the race card to be played.

    Holder is making these statements just to shift some of the heat from the “Fast and Furious” investigation and the House contempt order. He is no more qualified to be AG than Obummer is to be President, and they both should be wearing orange jump suits.
    Elections have consequences, and nearly 46% of the morons who claim to be Americans helped vote this “great pretender” into Office. He pretended to be an American while, in essence, he’s a black Marxist revolutionary. As soon as he was able, he appointed as many Marxists to office holders as he could.
    He was voted into Office by a majority of WHITE people (blacks account for only 12-13% of the national population) because of an alleged mass perception of what is termed “white guilt”. The majority of black people voted for him simply because he was black. Both of these are not bona fide reasons to be President of the United States. Yet, there he sits in the White House, PRETENDING to be President of all. America, as we know Her, will not survive another four years of these communists. Let’s put an American president in Office for 2012!

  11. Lyn Rogers says:

    LIAR, smart Americans know he is a liar, communist, and muslim supporter.

  12. Remington 870 says:

    Is Congress going to let Holder get off with a ‘letter of Contempt’ and nothing more? The only people who regard Holder as a person of credibility are people none of us would let near our children, homes or farm animals.

  13. Cat says:

    Whenever something doesn’t go their way or they want to rile up the natives, out prances the race card. With an average IQ of only 85 the natives are easily riled. Racism is the new trendy word. They tend to think that’s the ultimate insult to call someone a racist. For me? Means nothing. I could care less if they or anyone else thinks I’m a racist. It’s just a freaking word, who cares. If not liking my town destroyed (we’re 78% black here), my grandmother’s house broken into and her beat, daily looting, stealing, murdering then yes I’m a racist and I wear the title proudly.

  14. lanningsplace says:

    Holder is a bigoted racist and he will be held accountable for his lawlessness and disregard for the Constitution of the Untied States of America. Like his boss, he lies about everything. But Americans are on to both of them and they will be swept away by an electoral tsunami coming in November. Then comes real justice!
