Holder to State AGs: It’s Okay to Ignore the Law, You Don’t Have to Defend Gay Marriage Bans

Attorney General Eric Holder is taking his progressive activism to a new level. We have heard Barack Obama constantly state that he will rule by dictatorship with his repeated mantra ‘I have a pen, and I have a phone and I will use both to further my agenda.’ It looks as though Holder is following his example of making tyranny in America commonplace. 

As Attorney General, Eric Holder is supposed to uphold the law and prosecute those who break laws. However, at a recent meeting with state attorney generals, Holder instructed them that they do not have to enforce gay marriage bans that may be in place in their state.

This activism should come as no surprise given the fact that Holder, and Obama, refused to defend the ‘Defense of Marriage Act’, refused to prosecute New Black Panther members for voter intimidation, and have failed to thoroughly and properly investigate numerous scandals including the IRS targeting of Tea Party and other conservative groups.

Keeping in line with the progressive attempt to equate gay marriage with the Civil Rights movement, a time during which blacks could be lynched, were made to enter through back doors, drink from different water fountains, were refused service in diners, and had powerful water hoses turned on them, Holder turned to the Brown v. the Board of Education case, which dealt with school segregation, to defend his encouragement of the states attorneys general to be selective regarding which laws to enforce and defend.

If I were attorney general in Kansas in 1953, I would not have defended a Kansas statute that put in place separate-but-equal facilities.” 

Rev. William Owens, president of the Coalition of African-American Pastors responded to Holder’s green light to attorney generals throughout the country to ignore laws within their state dealing with marriage. The pastors are also calling for the impeachment of Eric Holder.

“I am ashamed of Mr. Obama and Mr. Holder for turning their backs on the black community and the values that we hold dear – values we want strengthened and promoted rather than weakened and undermined. The ongoing process of civil rights rightly calls for the building up of a healthier marriage culture. When the top law enforcement officer in the nation runs roughshod over the rule of law, that problem cannot be ignored.

With these actions, the nation’s supposed top law enforcement officer sends a clear message. The rule of law does not matter.
