If Attorney General Holder isn’t a racist, he sure acts like one.

After a recent testy exchange between the good Texas Congressman Louie Gohmert during testimony, Attorney General Holder gave a speech at Al Sharpton’s National Action Network, a group reportedly working for racial equality.

During the speech, Holder stated, “Forget about me specifically. Look at the way the attorney general of the United States was treated yesterday by a House committee. What attorney general has ever had to deal with that kind of treatment? What president has ever had to deal with that kind of treatment?”

The attorney general’s comments were clearly meant to imply that he and the president have been treated roughly because of the color of their skin.

Nothing could be further from the truth. The reason they are taken to task is because the American people and many members of Congress do not believe they have been told the truth about Fast and Furious, Benghazi, the IRS focusing on conservative groups seeking tax-exempt status, the NSA spying on Americans, Fort Hood and many other scandals President Obama referred to as “phony” in a speech at Knox College in Illinois last July.

Due to withholding information on the government-sanctioned gun-running program known as Fast and Furious, the attorney general was held in contempt by Congress in June of 2012.

What should concern all Americans is that both Attorney General Holder and President Obama would have anything to do with Al Sharpton, a suspicious character at best as it pertains to racial matters.

You may recall that it was Sharpton who aggressively came to the defense of Tawana Brawley in 1988 who falsely claimed she had been raped 33 times by a mob of white men and smeared with feces. Still to this day Sharpton has not apologized for his role in this dastardly racist rape hoax.

Sharpton was busy fanning racist flames with his racist bile during and after the George Zimmerman trial last year. Sharpton also fanned racist flames in 2006 during the false accusation by a black stripper that two white Duke lacrosse players had raped her, and for his involvement in the 1991 race riots in Brooklyn’s Crown Heights neighborhood.

Sharpton has made numerous other racial and homophobic comments, and it appears that his tax problems have obviously been swept under the rug by Attorney General Holder and President Obama.

Many Americans find it appalling that our attorney general and president would have anything to do with Sharpton who has made a comfortable living fanning the dying embers of racism.

Politics is a rough and tumble game. This latest dust-up between Attorney General Holder and Rep. Gohmert has got zero to do with the skin color of the attorney general or the president but rather their consistent lack of transparency regarding numerous and suspicious scandals.To suggest otherwise is a political stunt to cover up the scandals that continue to swirl around this phony administration.

We should demand the complete and total truth about Fast and Furious, which resulted in Border Patrol hero Brian Terry’s death and the deaths of 200 Mexicans.

We should demand the complete truth about Benghazi, which led to the deaths of four Americans including Ambassador Stevens.

Someone should go to prison for the IRS scandal that targeted conservative groups. I recommend the GOP get a special prosecutor to investigate this mess.

We should demand the truth about the other scandals. President Nixon was tossed out of office for what now seems a drop in the bucket compared to what has occurred in the Obama administration. No one died as a direct result of Watergate.

This has nothing to do with skin color but rather getting at the truth, which is the foundation upon which our republic is founded.

My dad used to say: Tell me who you associate with and I will tell you who you are. Associating with Mr. Sharpton speaks volumes about our attorney general and president.

It’s all about content of character, not the color of skin. Write that down.
