Nugent Calls Holder A "Racist Punk"

Blog ››› ››› MEDIA MATTERS STAFF

In a March 14 Washington Times column, Ted Nugent repeatedly called Attorney General Eric Holder "racist," highlighting a recent request by the Department of Justice that the city of Dayton, Ohio, lower the passing scores for its police exams because they reportedly did "not meet terms of a lawsuit settlement that require the city to hire more black police and firefighters." Nugent did not note that the Bush DOJ originally sued the city of Dayton over the exams in September 2008; the lawsuit was later settled in February 2009 by the Obama DOJ.

From Nugent's column:

Flunking is the new norm at racist Eric H. Holder Jr.'s Department of Injustice. In yet another ugly, blatant and defining racist move, Mr. Holder is forcing the city ofDayton, Ohio, to lower the passing threshhold on the test for those wanting to be police officers because not enough black recruits passed the exam.

Instead of attracting the best and brightest to serve the public, racist Mr. Holder will now ensure that the good residents of Dayton will be protected by dunce cops who score the equivalent of a D or F on the entrance exam.

Entrance exam scores may also be lowered for firefighters so that more black applicants can be accepted.

What Mr. Holder clearly wants by forcing his racist substandards on the good citizens of Dayton is to ensure people he favors get a fair shake at becoming cops by lowering the standards to such a degree that there might as well not be any entrance exams.

[...]

Leaving aside that Mr. Holder's Department of Injustice should stay the heck out of Dayton's entrance exam standards (which were already pathetically low), the issue that should boil the blood of Dayton residents is that their tax dollars will pay the salaries of public employees who are functionally illiterate - the very bottom of the barrel.

So much for excellence, right, Eric the racist?

[...]

Maybe President Obama will come to Dayton and have a beer with angry citizens and try and assuage their concerns. What the president should do is fire the racist punk Mr. Holder for a pattern of ugly racist statements and behavior.

Unfortunately, Mr. Holder passed Mr. Obama's low, low standards.

Racism lives, and it lives in the Obama crony administration. How sad.
