In pointed terms during an interview with MSNBC on Wednesday, Obama-era attorney general Eric Holder posed the question to MAGA-chanting Trump supporters: “Exactly when did you think America was great?”
After speaking during Wednesday’s MSNBC interview with Holder on topics like criminal justice reform and partisan redistricting – which the ex-AG says is now his focus instead of running for the White House in 2020 – host Ari Melber had asked him: “There is a lot of talk about America being a leader as a democracy, quote unquote, in the 1800s when women and African-Americans couldn’t vote. What kind of democracy is that?”
I must note here that, AGAIN, we are not a democracy, the Founders were very clear on that. And, yes, it was never right that women and Blacks could not vote, but, if you read history, you will see that America fixed those issues. Your welcome! Now back to the Mexican cartels favorite AG
Holder, unprovoked, then used his answer to tear into Trump’s campaign rally cry.
That’s exactly right. And that’s what I hear these things about ‘let’s make America great again’ and I think to myself, ‘exactly when did you think America was great’?” he said on the show.
“It certainly wasn’t when people were enslaved. It certainly wasn’t when women didn’t have the right to vote. It certainly wasn’t when the LGBT community was denied the rights to which it was entitled.”
“It takes us back to what I think, an American past that never in fact really existed. This notion of greatness,” Holder replied.
Another America-bashing leftist. The sins Holder points to are not uniquely American are they? And, as time has passed, and those sins have been purged America has become greater. It has become the most generous nation on earth, and the most tolerant and inclusive. Yet, Leftists like Holder hates America. Not because of our past, but because of our founding principles of natural rights, and individual liberties. Such principles aggrieve leftists like Holder, who frowns upon natural rights like freedom of speech, religion, and association. And that whole right to bear arms? Whoa he loathes that as well! He much prefers the Collectivist model where the state is supreme and the individual is tightly controlled by central planners. In truth Holder loathes the individual, and natural rights.
