Eric Holder vs Texas


We're not sure Attorney General Eric Holder knows what he's getting himself into. Either he's terribly naive or he is insanely arrogant. Probably both. While speaking at the race-baiting, ultra liberal National Urban League (he would never talk like this at an NRA conference) on Thursday, Holder said he would ask a federal court to require Texas to submit all their future voting laws to be scrutinized by the Department of Justice, indefinitely!

Yes, amazingly because of what Holder calls, ”history of pervasive voting-related discrimination against racial minorities” based on a court case brought on by none other that AG Eric Holder himself, he has the utter audacity to call for an indefinite meddling in the state of Texas' own legislative affairs. With this unprecedented action, Holder and the Obama administration are becoming a law unto themselves.

This is so brazen and outrageous to interfere in the business of an individual state like this, I can hardly form words for commentary. I'm thinking Holder is waking a sleeping giant in Texas. We're just waiting for a response from Texas Governor Rick Perry.

In response to the Supreme Court’s recent decision that states are innocent of institutional racism until proven guilty, Attorney General Eric Holder is arguing that Texas’ “history of pervasive voting-related discrimination against racial minorities” should make its voting laws subject to the Department of Justice’s oversight indefinitely.

While speaking before the National Urban League in Philadelphia on Thursday, Holder said his agency would ask a federal judge to require Texas to submit all its voting laws to the DOJ for review before they can be legally enacted because the state has a supposed history of discrimination and racism.

“And today I am announcing that the Justice Department will ask a federal court in Texas to subject the State of Texas to a pre-clearance regime similar to the one required by Section 5 of the Voting Rights Act,” Holder said at the organization’s annual conference.

The Attorney General cited “evidence of intentional racial discrimination” found following the case Texas v. Holder, in addition to a ”history of pervasive voting-related discrimination against racial minorities.” He continued, saying the state would need to acquire “pre-approval” from either the Department of Justice or a federal court before implementing any future changes in voting laws.
