Brit Hume: Crybaby Holder has ‘benefited politically enormously’ from being black

hume.jpgWhen asked to respond to Attorney General Eric Holder‘s comment on how he’s being treated by Congress, Fox News senior political analyst Brit Hume answered that it was “crybaby stuff” coming from someone who has “benefited politically enormously” from being black.

Holder was speaking before Al Sharpton’s National Action Network last week, the day after he got into a tense exchange on Capitol Hill with U.S. Rep. Louie Gohmert, R-Texas, when he put forth the question, “What attorney general has ever had to deal with that kind of treatment?”

A seemingly clear reference to race.

True the Vote president calls Cummings damning
emails ‘the tip of a very ugly iceberg’

Chris Wallace, host of “Fox News Sunday,” asked Hume if the attorney general had a point.

“I don’t think so,” Hume said, adding that “the list is long of attorneys general and other officials who have been subjected to some very rough treatment on Capitol Hill.”

“And this strikes me as kind of crybaby stuff from Holder,” he continued. My sense of that this is that both Eric Holder and Barack Obama have benefited politically enormously from the fact that they are African-American and the first to hold the jobs that they hold.”

Fellow panelist George Will later said the left’s frequent cries of racism have “become a joke among young people.”

“Liberalism has a kind of Tourette’s syndrome these days,” Will said. “It’s just constantly saying the word racism and racist.” 

Hume further observed that for both Holder and President Barack Obama, “race has been both a shield and a sword that they have used effectively to defend themselves and to attack others.”

    Speaking at the “National Action Network“? That appearance alone tells an incredible story. The recognition given to the ignoramus Sharpton is a great embarrassment to people of color who are hard-working, honorable citizens.

  2. carolskey says:

    Pervasive “white guilt” among liberals is used to deflect the “blackness” in their own hearts, NOT to empathize with the abuses of blacks in the past! It seems a simple concept, but the convolution of this misplaced concern is the essence of the failed “theology” of liberalism!

    God please eradicate America of this little god they worship!

    I told you it pays to be black. Paint your white ass black and get your way and get whatever you want, and if you don’t get what you want just yell racist and you know the rest of the story.

    Holder must be counting on people forgetting John Mitchell.

      Ya beat me to it.

  5. Eric Holder, a Barbadian, is not an African, and should have never been confirmed! The Senate voted 75-21 to confirm Eric Holder as the first so called African-American attorney general.

    Holder’s confirmation hearing was being held while many were celebrating the 80th birthday Martin Luther King Jr.

    Sen. Bond as well as several others on this list have been whining that Holder didn’t pay attention to their entreaties against appointing a special prosecutor to investigate the CIA as well as other internal investigations.

    Here are the Republicans who are free grazing on Democrat Straw!

    They must be voted out of office…It’s our jobs to find replacements for these traitors, urging others to run for these senate seats…

    Alexander (R-TN)
    Bennett (R-UT)
    Bond (R-MO)
    Chambliss (R-Ga)
    Collins (R-ME)
    Corker (R-TN)
    Graham (R-SC)
    Grassley (R-IA)

    Eric Holder, if anything, is a Bajan-American, not an African American. And like Obama has very little if any African bloodline…

    The Following is of an Unknown Source…Have had this Archived for over a year, and can be easily verified through other biographies of the Attorney General Holder.

    [Eric] Holder, the son of Eric Sr and Miriam Holder, both Barbadians, as were his maternal grandparents. Barbados has the best educated, best behaved black population of the West Indies.

    Bajans generally look down upon other West Indians, much less African-Americans, as frightfully uncivilized.

    Holder grew up in one of those “race-protected cocoons,” in a middle class “West Indian enclave” where he was kept away from African-American culture.

    Further, anybody familiar with the racial structure of
    the West Indies — if you’re not, Malcolm Gladwell’s chapter in Outliers on his mother’s family in Jamaica is a good introduction — would recognize that Holder is from Barbado’s mulatto middle class, rather than from its black agricultural masses.

    As Gladwell points out,
    West Indians who look like Holder (or Gladwell’s mom) didn’t get that way by accident. Generations of careful breeding requiring a fair degree of social segregation have typically have gone into keeping the mulatto elites of the West Indies from slipping into the black masses.

    ——-> Obama like Holder, are using the Black populations to help destroy the American culture, and most unfortunately, many of them are all to willing to help!

    By their deeds, they will be known!

      I met a couple for Barbados many years ago. They were great people, unlike the couple of Dicks being discussed here.

      1. Absolutely and I agree….
        Can’t begrudge a whole race of people on account of a few bad potatoes…

        I’ve another article related to the above that states just as you have…I don’t know if this will stay up, other links have been taken down by Discus due possibly to the titles!
        So, I’m to thinking anyways?

        Short biography and great read.

          Strange that you have the same name as someone I work with, but I’m certain you aren’t him.

          1. I’m a fishing guide and work alone, lucky you too, I take after Momma and talk way to dang much?! lol

    “What attorney general has ever had to deal with that kind of treatment?” John Mitchell, under the Nixon administration. Mitchell did jail time and Nixon resigned for a hell of a lot less than the Obama regime is guilty of.

      Bull! I was alive then. Your statement is pure bull!

    Where parents have many choices to advance their children’s interests, inheritance is a superior moral choice to options such as nepotism.

  8. seazen says:

    Really bizarre headline. Here’s a question that is related: If you were to have the opportunity to choose being born with black skin or white skin, which would you choose —- so you could have the most “benefits.”?

    “Instead, take one of them–Fred Barnes, Karl Rove, who cares–and call them racists. Ask: why do they have such a deep-seated problem with a black politician who unites the country? What lurks behind those problems? ”

    Spencer Ackerman … Obama is merely recycling journ0list talking points.

    Seems Hume finally found the four year old memo that everyone else knew to be true

  10. JHorvathJr says:

    Obama + Holder have shown that we no longer need protect voters against intimidation (if it’s ok for the Black Panthers to do it, it’s okay for others to do it). It’s all so simple, even a Holder could memorize it: citizens get EQUAL treatment under the law. (Obama will need it on a teleprompter).
