Eric Holder Must Go

George Zimmerman has been found not guilty of murdering Trayvon Martin.  In response, an extremist group known as the New Black Panther Party reportedly declared “war,” urged others to “take to the streets and stay there” and denounced the “white man’s justice system.”

If such race-baiting sounds familiar, that might be because New Black Panther Party members physically threatened white voters in Philadelphia back in November.  But the “justice system” Attorney General Eric Holder presides over let them off the hook.

Now the man prevented from prosecuting the Panthers, former career Justice Department attorney J. Christian Adams, says Holder’s agency actually sent staff to Florida to “help” stoke racial tensions and demands for Zimmerman to be criminally charged.

Such behavior is appalling – and just the latest reason for Eric Holder to resign.
