Sometimes these stories just write themselves.
If ISIS rammed a car into a crowd this would be labeled quickly & logically. Charlottesville – call it what it is, domestic terrorism.
— Eric Holder (@EricHolder) August 13, 2017
Following tragedy in Charlottesville, among those publicly calling on the rest of us to “tell it like it is” and refer to the attack as an act of terrorism is none other than Eric Holder.
He joins many on the left in being outraged that President Donald Trump didn’t immediately use the phrase “white supremacist terrorist” — the same people who didn’t mind that then-President Barack Obama never used the phrase “radical Islamic terrorist.”
It’s particularly rich to see Holder among those complaining however, as this would be the first time in his career he’d shown concern for how we label terrorist acts. Who could forget that it’s Holder who infamously referred to the terrorist shooting at Fort Hood as an act of workplace violence? The 2009 attack by Maj. Nidal Hasan left 13 dead and over 40 wounded. Hasan had given numerous warning signs that he was being radicalized by Islamist ideology, but they were ignored until he went on his murderous spree.
Needless to say, the rest of the internet couldn’t help but point out the hypocrisy.
Maybe you should sit this one out, Mr. Workplace Violencehttps://t.co/rpmKr9MVeA

You were AG in an administration that called the terror attack at Ft. Hood a case of "work place violence".
You should probably shut up. https://t.co/LrfhhbxozV

You labeled the Ferguson PD racists in the death of Brown and then very quietly released a report exonerating the officer in his death.

Because the Fort Hood shooting was classified as “workplace violence” rather than an act of terror, the victims and their families were denied Purple Hearts. That’s a high price for political correctness to place on the families of those who died in the attack.
It’s about time he got some karma for it – even if it was just in the form of some brief internet embarrassment.
