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

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.

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.”

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 [email protected]

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!

    These communist-front organizations have damaged many families. No wonder obamao likes Holder: they spread the sickness of communism together, hand-in-hand. These criminals must be tried and brought to justice, and the media must report their actions.

  • Johnny Banco

    Is there something racist about showing a pic of Holder with an afro looking like he’s Billy Preston or Oscar Gamble?

    • Conservativeanarchist

      No, it was a picture of him at the time he held a military recruiting office hostage for five days with a gun. That’s all I see.

    • radjahshelduck

      I tip my cap to you for the Oscar Gamble reference. A better player than I remembered; he had a .265 career average with 200 home runs.

  • weRbroke

    Typical Liberal Double Standard. Meh. Not surprised in the least and someday, all those liberals crying “racist” are going to get their D-onkey handed to them. It’s coming.

  • strat77

    Why am I not shocked? What an effed up administration this is.

  • ratizbad

    The Eric(Black Power) Holder is disgusting and a hit man for his crime partner that occupies the Ghetto House in DC.

  • Jefferson Tea Party

    And, this news was exactly *WHERE* 4 years ago???

    • PennyRobinsonFanClub

      Buried under hysterical shrieks about Sarah Palin’ s glasses or something.

  • CalCon10

    So now we know why Holder wouldn’t prosecute the Black Panthers. They literally were, in a personal (vs purely racial) sense, “his people.”

  • c2

    Yeah, but Mitt cut a kid’s hair.


    NO WONDER HE QUASHED the investigtion on the BLACK PANTHERS!!!!DUH !!!!
    THE MAN wants to be one !!!!!
    PROGRESSIVES, when they take over, they move in radicals to critical places on GOV, and take over the media.
    Everyone seen the Pat Caddell video rant (AWESOME TRUTH) on the media and OBAME yet?
    Saw it on Right Scoop last night, someone mentioned it here on Twitchy last night.
    I emailed it to everyone I know and every site that needed to post it last night.
    Please watch it, and you will know why what is happening ….is happening and why.
    Pat was on FOX a while ago, and disgussed his rant.
    Of course he works for FOX, but this has got VIRAL VELOCITY to it now.
    It can’t explain IDIOTS like Morning SMOE on MSLSD, but as we lose the country to PROGRESSIVES, we will at least know who is responsible.
    There will be no where to hide JOE !
    Editing tapes to MOCK decent Presidential candidates to entertain yourself and your
    liberal fan base, well……in the end it WON’T be worth it……
    Does everone know one of his young female congressional aides died in his office,
    and he quit Congress to take care of his boys….really?
    And you, mock people on air????? With liberal imput to do so????
    I wish I could call JOE a back stabber, but he will never reach that height of respect for as long as he lives now.
    With his record, he can ONLY be a liberal PROGRESSIVE taking down Conservative Republicans.
    I heard he takes BAGS of money under the table from the WHITE HOUSE, well, it was “maybe” what I heard from a friend of a friend of that AXELROD guy in CHICAGO….
    What I “maybe” heard, and I am going to maybe stick to it.
    Did say I was anti-progressive, well, “maybe” now you know, and I am proud to be one.

  • Ron Morisseau

    Mr.Holder, Linc from “the mod squad” wants his hair back

  • EastValleyConservative

    I don’t expect any of these twits to take crime and corruption seriously. Polls indicate a dead heat race which tells me that half the nation is FOR stealing the other half’s money by enslavement, and corruption and selective justice are okay as long as it benefits them. Wonder how they will react when they find out it is not to benefit them?? Occupy part II–the radical faction versus the willfully ignorant who followed them. Good luck with that, you support the abolishing of the 2nd amendment, so they will be the only ones with guns.

  • Maria

    The truth is racist.

  • LightSabre

    Holder had to have his nomination for AG approved by the Senate Judiciary committee. Why did those incompetent jackasses not find this out then?

  • Jack Offelday

    Obama also employed marxist and “911 truther” Van Jones. The entire Obama Administration is polluted.

  • Wulfheard

    I love it when liberal demonacrats call others out as racist. Someone needs to clue them in on their incredibly racist roots. But then again maybe they are right because who else but a democrat who be so in tune with the acts of racism. They practically invented racism in America.

  • Terry_Jim

    A competent reporter who wasn’t an Obama sycophant might ask,” General Holder, when was the turning point? When did you see that armed take-over of a university department was wrong?” . . .
    .Hello, Univision?

  • rant stocks

    Lets all say it together……. CORRUPT….. adminstration.

  • cscape

    hey….. he’s turning his life around! (why am i not surprised)
