Crush Liberalism

Liberalism: Why think when you can “feel”?

Eric Holder: No, I haven’t read the AZ immigration law, but I’m POSITIVE it’s unconstitutional!

When you’ve already got your mind made up about something, you don’t let trivial things like facts and the Constitution get in the way, do you?  Details:

Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr., who has been critical of Arizona’s new immigration law, said Thursday he hasn’t yet read the law and is going by what he’s read in newspapers or seen on television.

Now that is an awesome prosecutorial approach!  “Your honor, I have no bleeping idea what’s in this law, but Keith Olbermann says it sucks, so here we are.”  Continuing:

“I’ve just expressed concerns on the basis of what I’ve heard about the law. But I’m not in a position to say at this point, not having read the law, not having had the chance to interact with people are doing the review, exactly what my position is,” Mr. Holder told the House Judiciary Committee.

This weekend Mr. Holder told NBC’s “Meet the Press” program that the Arizona law “has the possibility of leading to racial profiling.” He had earlier called the law’s passage “unfortunate,” and questioned whether the law was unconstitutional because it tried to assume powers that may be reserved for the federal government.

Rep. Ted Poe, who had questioned Mr. Holder about the law, wondered how he could have those opinions if he hadn’t yet read the legislation.

“It’s hard for me to understand how you would have concerns about something being unconstitutional if you haven’t even read the law,” the Texas Republican told the attorney general.

Holder’s response to “what part of the AZ law violates the Constitution?” seems to be “Who cares?  I don’t like it!”  The chief law enforcement officer, friends.  We’re in great hands.

Apparently, the administration didn’t learn diddly after the Cambridge police – Professor Gates incident, whereby Barry O made a fool of himself by criticizing the police (“They acted stupidly”) before getting all of the information.  Open mouth, insert foot, repeat as necessary.

  1. It may very well be unconstitutional, but Arizona is only doing it because the Federal Government is failing to up hold the Constitution.

    The Constitution is a contract between the Federal Government, State Governments and the People of the United States. Thomas Jefferson said in the Declaration of Independence, when a government fails to do it’s basic contractual duty, then we must take action to correct this error. Arizona is doing just that. We need to support Arizona by votingout those who wont impeach those who who wont enforce the Constitution, and replace them with those who will.

  2. We as average citizens can be arrested or fined for anything we don’t know of the 30,000 state and federal laws that are supposed to help us. How can ignorance of the Arizona law by our top law officer Eric Holder be trashed without knowing the law? That will get you far in court when dragged in for a violation you didn’t know you violated.
