    Really? Seriously? Eric Holder? You’re going to advertise an event showing the picture of a guy who’s about to be charged with Contempt of Congress? The guy who is responsible for allowing thousands of guns, and now grenade parts, to walk into the hands of Mexican drug cartels and has led to the killing of at least 2 US law enforcement officers, and who knows how many Mexican officers? The guy who idly sits by and allows the Black Panthers to put a price on a man’s head, after refusing to prosecute them for voter intimidation? The guy who goes after Arizona for their immigration law, but ignores Oklahoma and Missouri who’ve had the exact same law for half a decade or more? The guy who’s defended the CIA drone attack strategy that’s cost the lives of an untold number of innocent civilians in Yemen and Pakistan? The guy who claimed, in a public speech, that the President has the power to target U.S. citizens for death based on unproven, secret accusations of Terrorism…without any shred of due process?

    What the hell does this guy know about civil rights and why is a civil rights organization having anything to do with him?
