How easy it must be to live your life as Al Sharpton does. Only the race-baiting NBC News star can look at the tragic events of the Fast and Furious scandal that ended with the death of a border patrol agent and see Attorney General Eric Holder as the real victim.
In the Huffington Post yesterday, Mr. Sharpton likened the House Oversight Committee's contempt vote on America's chief law enforcement official to the NYPD practice of "Stop and Frisk" which critics call a racially motivated police state tactic.
As I marched this past Sunday with tens of thousands in New York in opposition to the abhorrent practice of stop & frisk,' I couldn't help but think of our attorney general. Tattered down and publicly humiliated, AG Holder has been mishandled just like the young Black and Latino men (and women) who are demonized on our streets everyday. Chris Matthews of Hardball on MSNBC concurred: AG Holder is being profiled, stopped and searched.
Sharpton informs his HuffPo readership that Rep. Darrel Issa's (R-CA) committee has treated Holder in a snappy and demeaning way:
The highest officer of law and order in this nation has been ridiculed, scapegoated and handled as some sort of criminal throughout this 'investigation.' Turning over thousands of documents and overextending himself, AG Holder was spoken to and mistreated as if he were a child, and reminded that despite his esteemed position, he can and would be profiled.
Of course, the good Reverend never provides an example or a link to back up his claim. The reader is merely left to trust Sharpton on his assertion of racist behavior. And why shouldn't we? After all, his charges of racism in the past have been spot-on and always truthful. When you have a track record like his, you don't need to provide evidence of your irresponsible charge, your word is as good as gold.
Attorney General Eric Holder famously said that America is a "nation of cowards" when it comes to race. This was his first public pronouncement as the newly-sworn AG. If you tend to agree with Holder on this, can't we possibly excuse our hesitance to discuss racial issues on the obvious fact that race-peddlers like Sharpton use race as a cudgel to pound political opponents into the ground? In fact, Sharpton has made a lucrative career out of injecting odious racial politics into every single issue of American life...snip
