Eric Holder is an ideological radical. The following story goes a long way to explaining why The Attorney General of the United States refused to prosecute Black Panthers for conducting voter intimidation at polling sites in Philadelphia in 2008. Quite simply; they are his people. As you read, remember that this is the man chosen by Barack Obama as the nation's top law enforcement official . . . S.L.

As a freshman at Columbia University in 1970, future Attorney General Eric Holder participated in a five-day occupation of an abandoned Naval Reserve Officer Training Corps (ROTC) headquarters with a group of black students later described by the university’s Black Students’ Organization as “armed” - The Daily Caller

Department of Justice spokeswoman Tracy Schmaler has not responded to questions from The Daily Caller about whether Holder himself was armed — and if so, with what sort of weapon.

Holder was then among the leaders of the Student Afro-American Society (SAAS), which demanded that the former ROTC office be renamed the “Malcolm X Lounge.” The change, the group insisted, was to be made “in honor of a man who recognized the importance of territory as a basis for nationhood.”

Black radicals from the same group also occupied the office of Dean of Freshman Henry Coleman until their demands were met. Holder has publicly acknowledged being a part of that action.

The details of the student-led occupation, including the claim that the raiders were “armed,” come from a deleted Web page of the Black Students’ Organization (BSO) at Columbia, a successor group to the SAAS. Contemporary newspaper accounts in The Columbia Daily Spectator, a student newspaper, did not mention weapons.

Holder, now the United States’ highest-ranking law enforcement official, has given conflicting accounts of this episode during college commencement addresses at Columbia, but both the BSO’s website and the Daily Spectator have published facts that conflict with his version of events.

Holder has bragged about his involvement in the “rise of black consciousness” protests at Columbia.

Operation Fast & Furious -

We must Brainwash People To Be Against Guns"

- Eric Holder, 1995

Eric Holder, 1995, C-SPAN 2 video - Holder, then-US Attorney for DC, to the Women's National Democrat club in Washington, January 30th, 1995.

Quote: "We must brainwash people against guns." We want to have as part of the gun initiative bill an informational campaign to really change the hearts and minds of people in Washington and in particular our young people. They're saturated in the media and in entertainment or by the entertainment industry with violence, and I think too many of our young people, in particular our young men, are fascinated with violence and in particular fascinated with guns. And what we need to do is change the way in which people think about guns, especially young people and make it something that's not cool, that's not acceptable. It's not hip to carry a gun anymore in the way in which we've changed our attitudes about cigarettes."

This is the way these people think – they are idealogues.

Regarding the notion that Holder inherited Operation Fast and Furious from the Bush Administration: at one point in the Congressional hearing Holder suggested that he didn't know about Operation Fast and Furious, that when he came into office it was already underway. Holder was obliquely referring to a Bush-era program; Operation Wide Receiver. When challenged by Congressman Issa to produce any kind of documentation that this was the case, Holder backed down and acknowledged that there was no connection between Wide Receiver and the operation currently being investigated by Congress: Fast and Furious.
