Newt Proves Holder’s Point

February 27, 2009

Devilstower makes a subtle but remarkable point about Gingrich’s criticism of holder’s recent ‘nation of cowards’ comment:

While Newt joined in the pile-on to the blunt phrasing Holder used, Newt was too afraid of talking about race to even mention the subject of Holder’s comment.

In other words, Newt Gingrich proves that — at least as far as conservatives go — Holder was absolutely correct.

    Yes holder was correct. If you mention race and don’t insist minorities are oppressed you are labeled a racist and no “frank” conversation can take place.

    Perhaps some would, but that’s like when someone says ‘we must increase taxes’ and some call him a socialist. There will always be fringe voices looking for attention.

    Look, we have come so so far, but there is no question little pockets of discrimination and intolerance remain.
