Black Caucus Radicals Will Stage a Walkout During Holder Contempt Vote

It’s racist.

Let’s face it. They don’t give a damn about who killed border agent Brian Terry.
The Hill reported:

Members of the Congressional Black Caucus (CBC) plan to stage a walkout during Thursday’s vote on whether to place Attorney General Eric Holder in contempt of Congress.

The CBC is scheduled to meet at 10 a.m. on Thursday to discuss the details of the walkout and is planning to circulate a letter to House Democrats requesting that they join them on the Capitol steps for a press conference during the contempt vote.

The move comes less than 24 hours before the House plans to vote for the first time in history to hold a sitting attorney general in contempt of Congress for not complying with a congressional subpoena. Holder is the first black attorney general in U.S. history.

The walkout is reminiscent of a similar move made by Republicans in 2008 during a Democratic-led vote on whether to hold two senior staffers in President George W. Bush’s administration in contempt of Congress.

House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) — then the minority leader — led the walkout with Rep. Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) following closely behind him. Issa, the chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, is the sponsor of the contempt resolution against Holder.

“The House floor is the scene of a partisan, political stunt,” said Boehner at the time. House Democrats have been expressing similar comments about the Holder contempt measure.

CBC Chairman Cleaver released this statement on the Fast and Furious investigation this week.

“During this critical moment in our nation’s history, the attention of our country’s chief law enforcement officer should be focused on addressing ongoing law enforcement challenges and championing real issues, instead of being distracted by manufactured, partisan political ones. This is an extremely low moment in our body politic. The cause for civility has been met by an unnecessary and unfortunate partisanship.”

They don’t give a damn about Brian Terry.

    Why do they say ‘Black Caucus’ like that’s something to be proud of? Why not just speak the truth and say ‘We Blacks gonna stick together against you white devils!’.

    I don’t know, maybe my thinking has been polluted by Farrakhan, Jackson, etc. and all the other race baiters, but isn’t there anyone in the Black Caucus who is interested in integrity and truth?

  • Rachelle

    They will do the whole country a favor if they stay out.

    Unfortunately, they are like roaches….they’ll be back.

  • Jim

    Prior to the “walkout”, Issa should announce that the vote to censure Holder is in memory of Brian Terry. Holder lied, Terry died.

    Brian Terry is white. Do you think that might be why they don’t care? Hey, we all know this is true. We might as well come out and say it.

    The first responders of racism. Sad, because I wonder if Brian Terry was black, this would be the same course they would take in such a serious matter.

    This says to be that our rights and the rights of Brian Terry are being ignored. There needs to be resolve and restitution. These people only represent themselves.

    I cannot ascertain what has happen to the patriotism and honor in the leaders of this nation. I haven’t seen or witnessed such intense hate for the Whites in this nation. This is a very critical moment for the Terry family.

    THEY HAVE LOST THEIR BELOVED SON. I cannot imagine if we lost anyone of our children and while guarding this nation from criminals who have come over our borders to commit atrocities.

    Then this:” The walkout is reminiscent of a similar move made by Republicans in 2008 during a Democratic-led vote on whether to hold two senior staffers in President George W. Bush’s administration in contempt of Congress.”

    This is the Attorney General who should have exemplary and traditional respect for the law and the Constitution. Instead, Holder has brought this upon himself and a Nation. He has taken a route unbecoming a man in a position of great power, he has denied not just Congress but the Terry family to get closure.

    These people pictured are all blacks so I can assume, it is racist. Sorry, but that is my opinion and evidently clear to me that our nation is suffering from nauseating discrimination.

    There is so much hate in this administration it is sickening to watch is progress day after day. Doesn’t seem to be and end in sight. We haven’t come a long way since King and it is scaring the Hell out of me. Our nation needs desperately to get back on track.

    Plantation mindset.

    Pathetic bunch of losers.

    Shoulda picked our own cotton…

  • dwd

    They’re black. Holder’s black. They support Holder because he’s black.

    THAT is racism–the simplest, most obvious, clear-cut example of racism that there is.

    And that will accomplish…???

    If you are one of their constituents. . .please consider contacting them and explain to them that this investigation isn’t about RACE–it’s about how and why an American lost his life with govt. guns!

    If you are one of their constituents. . .and it was your son who had been murdered with US govt guns, wouldn’t you want to know the truth–the whole truth–that’s what this is all about.

    Does it matter that Brian Terry was white; that Eric Holder is black–NO–they are both Americans and because of the “possible” actions of one, his countryman is dead. Will we ever get over this “PC” crap and stop looking at each other as “hyphenated” Americans?

    Eric Holder is (supposed to be) America’s number one law enforcement officer–that means, he is supposed to look out for the well being of ALL Americans–did he do that by looking the other way when the NBP’s intimidated voters in Philadelphia; did he look out for the well being of, and keep Brian Terry safe–the only way we will know is for the DOJ to turn over all the documents that the Congress has requested.

    If you or I refused to comply with a subpoena, what would happen–we’d be in jail–why is America’s number one law enforcement officer above the law and you and I are not?

    If he is innocent, then he has nothing to hide and releasing these documents will vindicate him!

    Will the Black Caucus or any Congressional Caucus for that matter stand up and support the oath they took to the Constitution:

    “I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter: So help me God.”

    This action by the CBC goes directly against their oath IMO! Doesn’t the Constitution apply to ALL Americans regardless of race? By not adhering to their oath; by putting race and party politics before the welfare of American citizens; by not providing the truth to the family of a murdered American citizen, we find them to be in dereliction of their duties.

    Put yourself in the shoes of the Terry Family–how would you feel if your fellow American citizens walked out during a vote to expedite the investigation into your son’s death–it might not be happening to you now, but the way things are going down hill in this country (and fast), it might not be too long before one of you, their constituents, are switching places with the Terry family–why would you support any member of Congress who turns their backs on their fellow America?

  • Limousine Barry

    Let me be clear, I have given a letter the CBC to walk out and if necessary to accompany Eric Holder to prison… and stay there.

    Sure, this is a political stunt and it sucks. But, I just may join Eric Holder in jail. It’s good to know that I will be among friends. Good day.

  • dwd

    And every American whose representative walks out has been disenfranchised.

    Is one of those reps your rep? Let them know whether you approve with a letter and a vote.

  • Tim in Cali

    Alternate Headline:

    Congressional Black Caucus,Obama and Holder, flip the Terry family and hundreds of Mexican families the bird…

    Don’t let the door hit you on your butts, racists.

    Children in their districts are being killed every day. Black on Black crimes and I wonder if anyone of them has taken a moment out of their life to do something constructive for these kids.

    They could if the wanted too, take the bull by the horns and clean up some of the crime in the neighborhoods and actually help the kids to become more productive. Just extend their hand to their communities.

    What pride and what response they would get but the choose to continue the Hate.

  • GotFreedom

    If they walk out–take the vote anyway–too bad for them and their constituents–your reps aren’t doing their job representing you!

    Boehner–don’t hold up the vote; don’t let them vote later–tough luck–you leave when there’s a vote–you vote DOESN’T COUNT! You want it to count–you stick around and cast your vote and if you lose–remember this now and in November–ELECTIONS HAVE CONSEQUENCES AND WE ARE GOING TO VOTE YOUR SORRY BEHINDS OUT OF OFFICE SOONER THAN LATER!
