Loretta Lynch’s nomination as the new Attorney General to replace Eric Holder is being held up in the Senate, and according to chairman of the Congressional Black Caucus, Rep. G.K. Butterfield (D-NC), there’s only one reason for it.
It’s because she’s black.
Senate Republicans have been very clear in how they feel about Lynch. They are concerned that she will essentially continue the policies of Eric Holder. But that didn’t stop Butterfield from spewing his race baiting rhetoric during a recent conference call with reporters:
“I think race certainly can be considered a major factor in the delay.”
What a joke. Race baiting has become one of the standard liberal talking points whenever Republicans stand against Obama or members of his staff. But could there be some legit reasons for their hesitancy?
- Could it be her support of Obama’s unconstitutional executive amnesty?
- Could it be her part in negotiating a settlement with HSBC bank employees who were funneling money to terrorist groups and Mexican drug cartels, a settlement that allowed them to walk without criminal prosecution?
- Could it be her nonchalant attitude towards Operation Choke Point, which is a scheme by Obama and Holder that uses financial institutions to shut down LEGAL firearms and ammunition dealers?
- Could it be her opposition to voter ID laws?
- Could it be her opposition to the death penalty?
- Could it be her role as one of Eric Holder’s team of advisors? This would be the same Eric Holder who brought us Fast and Furious; the same Eric Holder who elected not to prosecute members of The New Black Panthers when they were caught on film intimidating white voters during the 2008 election; and it would be the same Eric Holder who used his office to intimidate Obama’s political enemies while providing cover for Obama’s scandals.
Nope! According to the Chairman of the Congressional Black Caucus, the only reason for opposing her is because of the color of her skin. Disgraceful.
When Barack Obama was elected in 2008, the swooning mainstream media promised us that he would be the first post-racial president. I wish he would let members of the CBC know about that.
Yeah… like that’s going to happen.
