Nancy Pelosi: Criticism of Holder is Probably Racist

Of course it is:
Lunacy, thy name is Pelosi -- House Minority leader Nancy Pelosi has an interesting theory as to why the GOP is targeting Eric Holder for his role in Operation Fast and Furious, reports TheDC's Nicholas Ballasy:

"House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said Thursday that House Republicans attempting to hold Attorney General Eric Holder in contempt of Congress are part of a 'nationwide scheme to suppress the vote... 'These very same people who are holding him in contempt are part of a nationwide scheme to suppress the vote.'"

Yes, Nancy, that makes so much sense. Or maybe it appears AG Holder is hiding many documents in Operation Fast and Furious.
Let's not forget that it was Eric Holder who killed the case against the New Black Panther members who stood outside a Philadelphia polling place armed with clubs attempting to intimidate white voters. Holder's job this November is to run interference for the Democrat's vote fraud efforts across the country. Meanwhile, those in the GOP who want to ensure the integrity of our vote are deemed racists for trying to keep illegals from voting. It's Bizarro world.

By going after Holder, Republicans ARE suppressing the vote -the Latino vote for Democrats.

By exposing Holder's actions, Republicans are revealing the fact that Latinos were used by Obama as sacrificial lambs on the alter of gun control. The more Mexicans who got murdered because of Fast&Furious, the easier it'd be for Obama to push the same gun ban nationally that he imposed on Chicago.

It appears that the White House ran an operation they knew would kill many many Mexicans -and if I were Latino, I'd be furious.

Pelosi's statement wasn't a lark, Democrat strategist Hillary Rosen doubled-down on ABC's This Week. If this is all they've got, then they're on thin ice:

GEORGE WILL: This is being played out on a context of executive aggrandizement, as the Republicans see it. First of all, the president re-writes immigration law by executive fiat. Then, while it's saying we must shield the secrets here regarding Fast and Furious deliberations, there's a torrent of leaks on the most sensitive national security matters appearing on the front page of the New York Times. Finally, Mr. Holder himself has made himself obnoxious to Republicans by saying, unlike the Supreme Court, that photo I.D. laws constitute voter suppression, that is, you have to present when you vote a photo I.D., the way you have to present a photo I.D. to get into Justice — Attorney General Holder’s Justice Department.

ROSEN: Now we're getting to the real issue. THIS is why Republicans don't like Eric Holder. Because he has challenged voter ID laws under the civil rights statutes as voter suppression rules that they are. Because he has challenged the Arizona discriminatory immigration law. Because he has refused to implement the discriminatory anti-marriage law.

So Eric Holder has shown a lot of backbone in the Justice Department and the Republicans hate it. So what do they do? They call for his resignation, they throw him with document requests that are impossible to respond to, they just throw more and more stuff at him to distract him from doing the things that the President and the people hired him to do.

WILL: Let the record show that The Supreme Court with Justice John Paul Stevens, liberal Justice writing it, said that there's no Constitutional flaw in photo ID voter laws.

ROSEN: They're going to have to review them in the courts. Thirteen states, George, have instituted new statutes since the Republicans took over those state legislatures in 2010, purely for the purpose of limiting voting...

WILL: ...to legal voters, yes.

Below is an exchange between George Will and DNC strategist Hillary Rosen. If this is all they've got, and her response mirrors Pelosi so this may be the official DNC defense of Holder, then they're on very thin ice.
