Report: Young Holder participated in ‘armed’ raid; Libs cry ‘racist!’!/RBPundit/status/252764716869505024

Totally! But oddly, he was calling himself Eric Holder back then.

As college sophomore, Eric Holder participated in ‘armed’ takeover of former Columbia University ROT

Decades before Eric Holder’s Department of Justice oversaw the deadly Operation Fast and Furious, the nation’s highest-ranking law enforcement official participated in what the Columbia University Black Students’ Organization called an “armed” takeover of the campus ROTC office.

As a freshman at Columbia University in 1970, future Attorney General Eric Holder participated in a five-day occupation of an abandoned Naval Reserve Officer Training Corps (ROTC) headquarters with a group of black students later described by the university’s Black Students’ Organization as “armed,” The Daily Caller has learned.

And then he moved on to bigger and better things, like gun running

Malcolm X or MLK Jr. Guess which one Eric Holder idolized.

The Daily Caller reports that Holder has given conflicting accounts of the armed protest that resulted in renaming the campus space the “Malcolm X lounge.” In a 2009 speech, he claimed the radical group wanted to “peacefully occupy one of the campus offices.”

Read the whole Daily Caller report, which includes details of Holder’s leadership role in the separatist Student Afro-American Society, a group that “actively supported the Black Panthers and the Black Power movement.”

#DidYouKnow Eric Holder is a former jr. wanna-be Black Panther? Explains a lot, doesn't it?

Note the Marxist jargon: Eric Holder says he worked for the "rise of black consciousness" while a student at Columbia.

Forward! To Holder’s DOJ refusing to prosecute New Black Panther Party members for voter intimidation.

And 3 … 2 … 1 … racist!

Mother Jones’ Adam Serwer must be proud to share the equally incisive analysis as the esteemed @REALBROTHER0003.

Daily Caller is leading the pack in unverified race-baiting speculation about stories other people already reported

— AdamSerwer (@AdamSerwer) October 1, 2012

Basically that story takes the same approach to covering Eric Holder that the Caller took to covering Trayvon Martin.

Oh no, Eric Holder was a college student with an afro at Columbia. IMPEACH.

Er … who’s the racist? We’d bet cash money there will be more where that came from. For now, let the desperate spin begin!

@AdamSerwer the original quote is probably "armed with only their wits and a desire for freedom."
