Eric Holder swore an oath to defend this country. But now we know the truth: he’s just another anti-American Democrat politician who doesn’t believe that there’s anything, special, unique, or great about America.
The former Obama-era attorney general asked Trump supporters during an MSNBC interview, “When did you actually think America was ever great?”
Most politicians realize saying the country they represent is not good, let alone great, is a big mistake.
New York Governor Andrew Cuomo made that mistake, and it almost killed his political career.
Holder apparently has no further political aspirations in this country, because he is not backing off his claim that America was never really great to start with.
Holder was no doubt taking a shot at Trump’s Make America Great Again campaign slogan, but he took it much further than anyone expected.
The former AG stated, “It certainly wasn’t [great] when people were enslaved.
“It certainly wasn’t when women didn’t have the right to vote.
“It certainly wasn’t when the LGBT community was denied the rights to which it was entitled.”
Holder went on to say that Trump’s slogan is intended to evoke emotions of greatness that this county never actually had.
Learning from Past Mistakes
The fact Holder is incapable of seeing the progress this country has made in what is a relatively short period of time.
There are always going to be challenges that need to be overcome — and the freedom we have to overcome those challenges and move the country forward is exactly what makes America great.
The fact that Holder and some of his fellow Democrats can’t see that is disturbing, to say the least.
