Holder 'will never leave Zimmerman alone'
Attorney general says 'investigation' still incomplete, charges could be coming
U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder made news again this week when he declared that his department has not given up on its investigation into George Zimmerman, the neighborhood watch volunteer who was acquitted in the death of black teen Trayvon Martin in Florida.
Journalist and author Jack Cashill, who closely followed the Zimmerman case and wrote about it in his new book, “If I Had a Son: Race, Guns, and the Railroading of George Zimmerman,” said that the case provides ammunition for Holder’s racial agenda and boosts support for an agenda targeting the Democratic Party base.
“What’s he doing, and I don’t think it’s coincidental that he said it on an election day when Virginia was still in play, is to rally the base. Saying we’re going to protect and the other guys won’t,” Cashill told WND.
Cashill said Holder has had an unusually high focus on racial issues since be became attorney general and has not even tried to hide his agenda from the American public.
“It’s been about race since he took over – one of the first things he did was that he killed the suit, which had already been won, against the [New] Black Panthers in Philadelphia who were involved in voter intimidation. That’s the amazing thing about it is that he is so transparent and that he has gotten away with so much, and no one calls him on it,” Cashill stated.
Order “If I Had a Son” now.
He believes that a large portion of the conservative media has not been willing to go after Holder on the issue for fear of being labeled a racist.
“Even the respectable conservative media is afraid of tackling the racial issue for the fear of being called racists themselves; it’s the great neutralizer in this debate,” Cashill commented.
According to Cashill, the victims of the agenda are people like Zimmerman who serve as unwitting scapegoats for the efforts of Holder and the Department of Justice.
“Yet, poor George Zimmerman – how much of a scapegoat can you make out of one individual?” Cashill wondered.
In “If I Had A Son,” Cashill tells the inside story of how, as the result of a tragic encounter with troubled 17-year-old Trayvon Martin, the media turned Zimmerman into a white racist vigilante, “the most hated man in America.”
“If I Had A Son” tells how for the first time in the history of American jurisprudence, a state government, the U.S. Department of Justice, the White House, the major media, the entertainment industry and the vestiges of the civil rights movement conspired to put an innocent man in prison for the rest of his life.
