“Read It? I haven’t even lectured on it yet.” Holder on the Arizona Law

It’s a joke among professors that when asked if they’d read a book, they respond as above. In my research on the entry I wrote on Holder and the religion whose teachings are inconsistent with violence, I ran across his other stellar performance before the Judiciary Committee, on the Arizona Law.

Here it is in all its cringing embarrassment. Note that we’re not talking about not having read a 400 page tome replete with footnotes, we’re talking about a dozen pages of text which any Attorney General should have read before pronouncing even a word on the subject, much less appearing before a Congressional committee.

Instead, it has something to do with how “I haven’t been briefed yet on this.”

And not only has he not read it, he’s lectured on it: even he admits to having voiced concerns based on reports from others, that it has been much discussed, but he still hasn’t read it.

See discussion in PJMedia by Dan Miller, “Holder’s ‘In the Dark’ Criticism of the Immigration Law.”

    Holder is a complete embarrassment. He makes Alberto Gonzales look like Oliver Wendell Holmes. I hope Obama keeps him around to remind the American people what a bunch of clowns we have elected to run the Country.

  2. Lorenz Gude says:

    Maybe he should try doing prayer breakfasts. Interfaith, of course. ;-)

    This is an affirmative action administration, including the president, and the results are EXACTLY what you can expect from such.

  4. [...] Eric Holder, US-Generalstaatsanwalt – der Mann hat das Gesetz Arizonas zur Durchsetzung des US-Einwanderungsgesetzes nicht nur nicht gelesen: Er ist auch noch nicht einmal dazu „gebrieft“ worden! (Heißt: Es hat ihm niemand tatsächliche Informationen gegeben, der etwas darüber weiß.) Mit anderen Worten: Holder macht gegen etwas Stimmung und stellt Behauptungen über etwas auf, von dem er nun überhaupt keine Ahnung hat, von dem er Null-Komma-Nichts weiß! [...]

    Walter,

    I hope Obama keeps him around to remind the American people …

    now they have another clown in the circus – John Brennan.

    Hard to identify any admin official who is not a clown.

    John Al Quds Brennan you mean.

    Walter, incog, Cynic,
    so the administration seems like a gang of fools. But maybe there is a method to their foolishness. The seemingly foolish things that the obamanoids often say and their foolish thinking and deeds may be part of a policy. There is a constant administration effort to toady to Muslims, to fawn over them and their “glorious” history and “splendid” civilization. So we get Obama putting Muslims before Jews in his inaugural speech, Obama bowing down to the saudi king, making his lying Cairo speech, persecuting Israel, humiliating Israel’s prime minister. Then Brennan called Jerusalem al-Quds [actually an arabized form of a Hebrew name for the city, haQodesh --but brennan doesn't know that]. This was no doubt a calculated way of introducing into public discourse the notion that Jerusalem the Holy City ירושלם עיר הקודש belongs to Arabs/Muslims. It was calculated like Jim Jones’ joke about a Jew selling a tie to the Taliban. Jones’ joke was meant to play on Western prejudices about Jewish merchants. In his joke, which did not have a Jewish character in its original form, Jones makes it seem that a cunning Jew is taking advantage of a poor Taliban feller.

    They want to build a US-Arab-Muslim bloc which could do wonders to bring down civilization, already on the sick bed. Israel gets in the way of such a project and they didn’t like Jews anyhow. They also want to show the Arabs that they are willing to sell the Jews down the river in order to establish trust between Washington and Damascus & Mecca and all other enlightened centers of civilization in the region.

    And the so-called “Left” are willing collaborators and spear-carriers in this project, whether they know what they are doing or not.

    Remember what Huey Long said: When fascism comes to America, it will be called anti-fascism.

    If you noted my reference to Krauthammer article, you should have seen that I do not deem a method and foolishness as mutually exclusive. There IS a method, but it is a method of fools.
