Apparently it’s not enough for the Obama Regime to be operate in a completely lawless manner on the federal level. Now, this gangsta bunch is trying to infect the states with their enthusiasm for destroying the Constitution and federalism. From the New York Times aka The Liberal Death Star:
Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. on Monday injected the Obama administration into the emotional and politicized debate over the future of state same-sex marriage bans, declaring in an interview that state attorneys general are not obligated to defend laws that they believe are discriminatory.
Mr. Holder was careful not to encourage his state counterparts to disavow their own laws, but said that officials who have carefully studied bans on gay marriage could refuse to defend them.
Six state attorneys general — all Democrats — have refused to defend bans on same-sex marriage, prompting criticism from Republicans who say they have a duty to stand behind their state laws, even if they do not agree with them.
So, if you are the attorney general of a sovereign state, according to Mr. Holder, you have the right, perhaps even the obligation, to disregard the will of the people as manifested in your state’s law, as long as you have “carefully studied” the issue. You know, the same way that Barack and Eric “carefully studied” the issue of so-called same sex marriage, which lead to the One’s “evolving” position of the issue. Some might say is what they studied is the election calendar to make sure they told the appropriate, well-time lies, but those people are just bitter-clinging cynics.
Also from the New York Times:
His comments signal the latest manifestation of the Obama administration’s evolving position on gay rights. Mr. Obama came into office opposed to same-sex marriage. But in 2011, he decided against defending the Defense of Marriage Act and ended the “don’t ask, don’t tell” policy barring gays and lesbians from the military. The next year, the president said he personally supported gay marriage.
Shazam! Who says liberals don’t believe in evolution?
Clearly, liberals like B. Hussein and his mouthpiece Eric “You Are a Race Coward” Holder, who are noted for crusading for “civil rights,” especially those of criminal defendants, believe that the people of the states of Virginia, Oregon, California, Nevada, Illinois, and Pennsylvania don’t deserve any representation when their state laws are under relentless assault by militant homosexual activists.
I would ask the attorneys general of those states “who speaks for the people of your state?” No one? Of course, that’s the answer.
Oh, and speaking of civil rights, Holder also chose a cheerleader for notorious cop killer Mumia Abu-Jamal to head up the Civil Rights Division of his (In)Justice Department.
Meanwhile, Holder continues to stonewall requests for information about his lying to Congress about Fast and Furious. He needs more time! Of course, he has plenty of time to send rent-a-mobs down to Florida any time there is an opportunity to play the race card, as in the Zimmerman case, another example of Mr.Holder’s interference in something that is absolutely none of his business.
