Eric Holder claims congressional call for his resignation is about race

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

US Attorney General Eric Holder allowed the sale of firearms to Mexican drug gangs even when the gun shops tried to report the illegal attempts to purchase these same firearms.  Brian Terry, a United States Border Patrol agent, was killed because of these purchases.

Sixty members of congress called for his resignation and US Attorney General Holder has refused.  He claims that the only reason he is being asked to resign is the fact he happens to be black.

A US Attorney General who causes the death of a federal employee ought to resign.  If US Attorney General Eric Holder believes his blackness is the reason he must also believe pigs can fly.

Here is what Eric said: “This is a way to get at the president because of the way I can be identified with him.  Both due to the nature of our relationship and, you know, the fact that we’re both African-American.”  No mention of pigs here in his statement.
