Eric Holder gets DESTROYED for Charlottesville comments

Sometimes these stories just write themselves.

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.

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.
