Jason Riley Slams Holder: ‘Looters And Rioters Don’t Need To Hear That Criticism Of Obama Is Race-Based’ [VIDEO]

Posted By Brendan Bordelon On 7:28 PM 08/19/2014 In | No Comments




Wall Street Journal editor Jason Riley hit Attorney General Eric Holder for comments regarding perceived racial opposition to President Barack Obama on Fox News’ “Special Report” Tuesday, noting that during the ongoing Ferguson crisis “looters and rioter don’t need to hear from the attorney general that criticism of Obama is race-based.”

Riley attacked Holder’s contention — which has been made repeatedly throughout the Obama administration — that opposition to the president stems largely from white racism. Going further than fellow panelist Dana Perino, he insinuated that the comments may have even contributed to the riots.

“These looters and rioters do not need to hear from the attorney general that criticism of Obama is race-based,” he contended. “What they need to hear from this black man, in this position — the nation’s leading law enforcement official — is that they need to stay out of trouble with the law.”

“They need to pull up their pants and finish school and take care of their kids,” Riley continued. “That is the message they need to hear, from black leaders and people in positions of authority like Eric Holder and Barack Obama.”

"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim tribute to patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness -- these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. . . . reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles."
George Washington

"Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become more corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters."
