18 Jul 2014 Holder’s “Racial Animus” Remark “a Dog Whistle in Itself”
Responding to allegations made by Attorney General Eric Holder that there is “racial animus” among critics of him and President Obama, Project 21 member Christopher Arps said “that’s a dog whistle in itself” — making reference to how the left tries to find code words and so-called “dog whistle racism” on the part of opponents of the Obama Administration’s policies and practices to gain support.
Instead, as Christopher explained on the 7/16/14 edition of the “Rick Amato Show” on the One America Network, “the wheels are falling off this administration” when it comes to issues such as the economy and immigration. Holder and the President’s supporters, he explained, “play the race card to deflect some of the blame.” This is getting extremely hard as the border crisis and the jobless recovery are causing even Obama’s most-loyal support among black Americans to decline.
Playing the race card in this manner is an obvious strategic tactic on the part of the White House at a time when Christopher says a “Tea Party-like groundswell” is needed to deal with the lack of transparency within the Obama Administration.
Speaking about the IRS scandal and the plague of crashed computers among accused Obama Administration staffers, Christopher said: “You got a better chance of marrying Beyonce and winning the lottery the same day. This case is clearly starting to scream out that it needs a special prosecutor. This administration is basically investigating itself and the administration’s credibility is really at a low point at this point.”
