Just One More Question...

  The hits just keep coming for Barack Obama and his merry band of henchmen. The U.S. House of Representatives on Thursday, voted to hold Attorney General Eric Holder in both civil and criminal contempt of Congress for his refusal to turn over key documents in the Fast and Furious gun-running scandal.
  Holder's boss, President Obama, if you remember, was going to have the "most transparent" administration ever. He failed to tell us when exactly that would be happening.
  Refusing to turn over documents in this case is just the latest in a string of questionable behaviors by Holder. By examining his track record, it seems like there should be just one more question asked of Attorney General Holder. Are you dragging your heels in this case because Brian Terry was white? Before everyone gets their panites in a bunch, let's look at Mr. Holder's history.
  On Election Day, 2008, two Black Panthers stood in front of a polling place in Philadelphia, smaking nightsticks in their hands, daring white voters to come in and vote. J. Christian Adams, an attorney in the Voting Rights section of the Department of Justice, claims in his book, "Injustice: Exposing The Racial Agenda of the Obama Justice Department", that he was directed by higher ups in the department to dismiss the case. In 2010, in one of the most brazen incidents of racial discrimination, in Mississippi was the case of Ike Brown. Brown, an African-American, was the Democrat Party Chairman in Noxubee County. Brown, for years, routinely practiced outrageous forms of discrimination by canceling ballots cast by white voters, and even threatening 174 white voters with not letting them vote if they challenged him. Brown was stripped of any power to supervise any election activity until 2012. Mississippi is one of a handful of states where the Department of Justice must oversee any voting law changes. It appears as though the Department of Justice has never done any real follow up on Mr. Brown's case as well. Adams also says that any request for information by right-leaning groups through the Freedom Of Information Act is held up for months. But if you are NPR, or the Mexican-American Legal Defense and Education Fund, chances are you will have what you need in a matter of days, if not the same day.
  So Eric Holder does, in fact, have an abysmal history when it comes to race. A man gave his life in the defense of this country. It does not matter if he is purple, his family has earned some answers as to what happened, and his memory does not need to be trampled on by ethnic Congressional Caucuses walking out on the contempt vote.
  There are a number of examples in Christian Adams book that tells of the pervasive racial double standard that is alive and well at Obama's Department of Justice. But the bottom line is this. Has this case been handled the way it has by an African-American Attorney General, and quite possibly an African-American President, all because the victim is white? Is there evidence of that in the documents being withheld? The video above of Sean Hannity's interview with Adams may hold the answer.
It's time we knew.
