Eric Holder Proudly Admits That He Uses His Position For Activism
Here’s a newsflash for all the low info progressives out there… The Attorney General of the United States is not an “activist” position. You see, there’s this thing called equality under the law that’s supposed to keep society from descending into chaos and Eric Holder is theoretically in charge of that.
A person in his position shouldn’t feel comfortable proudly admitting that he’s using the power of his position as an activist, yet that’s just what he did in an interview with Obama sycophant Juan Williams of The Hill…
Juan Williams: Holder exclusive — ‘Proud to be an activist’
“There are still [racial] issues we as a society are working our way through,” Holder said. “And the lack of desire to do that, I think, undermines the ability that I think is inherent in the American people to make progress. But it also does not prepare us for demographic changes, the likes of which this country has never seen.”
He added: “The justice system is part of the larger society and to the extent there are racial issues we are still grappling with, it is not a shock that you are going to see them in the justice system… [There is] a whole range of ways the justice system, if it is run properly, can make this country the country it wants to be.”
Holder remains indifferent to conservative protests that he is an ‘activist’ looking for trouble by digging into what he calls “policies [with] disproportionate impact on communities of color.”
“If you want to call me an activist attorney general, I will proudly accept that label,” he said. “Any attorney general who is not an activist is not doing his or her job. The responsibility of the attorney general is to change things [and] bring us closer to the ideals expressed in our founding documents.”
