Wednesday, U.S. Attorney General Eric “My People” Holder spoke before activists with the National Action Network, an organization founded by Al Sharpton, urging them to help the President promote his agenda.
Via Matthew Boyle of The Daily Caller:
The pillars of advocacy Holder pushed for during the speech, he said, “cannot be the work of government alone.”
“We will continue to need your help, your expertise, your dedication and your partnership,” Holder told Sharpton’s activists. “While I’m optimistic about the path that we’re on and the place that we’ll arrive, I cannot pretend that the road ahead will be an easy one. Many obstacles lie before us.”
“This — this — is our moment,” Holder added as the crowd cheered. “So let us seize the chance before us. Let us rise to the challenges of our time.”
Holder weighed in on the Trayvon Martin case, telling the NAN audience that “‘Justice Dept Peacemakers’ are working with civil rights leaders, law enforcement officers and area residents to address and help alleviate community tensions.” No mention was made of the New Black Panther bounty that’s been put on the accused’s head.
Meanwhile, our Attorney General has high praise for the man who brought us the Tawana Brawley rape hoax (and still claims it’s real) and who further made his reputation by fostering racial violence.
At the opening of NAN’s 14th annual convention in Washington, D.C., the attorney general first thanked MSNBC’s Rev. Sharpton “for your partnership, your friendship, and your tireless efforts to speak out for the voiceless, to stand up for the powerless, and to shine a light on the problems we must solve, and the promises we must fulfill.”
That should come as little surprise, as Sharpton was just feted at the White House. For Easter.
