It’s not often that a high-powered political figure receives an “in your face” message that carries such impact that the figure must pay attention. Eric Holder, Attorney General of the United States, however, has been forced to reconsider his orating during a law enforcement class graduation ceremony, however.
Holder was scheduled to speak during the ceremony for Oklahoma City police cadets. Protesters, however, stood tall, spoke loudly and carried large signs: You don’t deserve the position; you shouldn’t be here, and if you show up, you could be arrested for crimes you perpetratated during your tenure.
Law enforcement officers, politicians and other advocates organized a protest rally and escalated disparagement over Holder’s ignoring the United States Constitution, which he swore to uphold uniformly, and his gross mishandling of at least two major scandals during his term in office.
Two of the higher profile issues involve the Fast and Furious program that had the U.S. sponsoring gun sales to Mexican drug cartels and the IRS targeting of politically conservative groups.
Neither of these debacles have been as thoroughly investigated as the Congress and the American people wish them to be.
Bob Dani, a protest organizer, stated the deserved arrest this way:
“Eric Holder is in contempt of Congress right now.”
This pending-arrest call is not brand new. The ground swell has been growing for weeks, at least, but Holder finally got the message with a spokesman’s announcement.
“The attorney general had been looking forward to addressing the cadets and regrets he cannot attend in person. He extends his heartfelt congratulations to the cadets and their families.”
That looks like strike-one and strike-two against Obummer. N-n-n-next?!
