EXPOSED: Eric Holder’s Days As A Radical Militant…
(Eric Holder and “his people” )
PORTRAIT OF THE ATTORNEY GENERAL AS A YOUNG MILITANT
A while ago, The Daily Caller reported that, as a student at Columbia University, Eric Holder participated in an armed takeover of the University’s former ROTC office. John wrote about this at the time, but I want to expand.
According to the Daily Caller, Holder was among the leaders of the Student Afro-American Society (SAAS), which demanded that the former ROTC office be renamed the “Malcolm X Lounge.” The change, the group insisted, was to be made “in honor of a man who recognized the importance of territory as a basis for nationhood.”
This statement shows the separatist nature of the group Holder helped lead. And, indeed, Stefan Bradley, professor of African-American studies at Saint Louis University and author of the 2009 book “Harlem vs. Columbia University,” has described the Columbia organization as separatist.
It is rather remarkable to now know that the current Attorney General of the United States, the top defender of justice in the land, was himself a member of a Black separatist organization that used guns to take over a public facility. The Powerline article continues:
Holder himself said in a 2009 speech that he and his fellow students decided to “peacefully occupy one of the campus offices.” Presumably, this was the ROTC office.
The information that the occupiers were armed comes from a deleted Web page of the Black Students’ Organization (BSO) at Columbia, a successor group to the SAAS. It states: “In 1970, a group of armed black students seized the abandoned ROTC office on the first floor of Hartley Hall.” If this account is correct, then Holder either has forgotten about the arms, pretends there were no arms, or means that the occupation was “peaceful” in the sense that no one was shot.
The deleted web page reference is an all too common example for those associated with the Obama White House – up to and including Barack Obama himself. Information continues to be scrubbed as it relates to the real and relevant past of these individuals.
Forty years later, Holder still seems proud of his militant activity. During a 2009 commencement speech at Columbia, he boasted: “I was among a large group of students who felt strongly about the way we thought the world should be, and we weren’t afraid to make our opinions heard.” He didn’t add that they felt so strongly they violated the law and, it would appear, armed themselves in the process.
Nor did Holder tell his audience what, specifically, he and his comrades felt so strongly about. As noted, his outfit — SAAS –favored racial separatism. Additionally, according to Professor Bradley, they actively supported the Black Panthers, who were widely viewed by black campus radicals as role models. LINK
Sheds a bit of light on way Eric Holder was so opposed to prosecuting the Black Panthers for voter intimidation a few years back doesn’t it? The Obama administration continues to prove itself the most radical collection of anti-Americans ever assembled at the highest levels of national politics.
And they were all just re-elected in 2012…
