Why Jeff Carter is wrong about citing Eric Holder for contempt of Congress

Townhall financial columnist Jeff Carter asserts that it is "not a wise move" for House Republicans to cite Attorney General Eric Holder for contempt of Congress for stonewalling and withholding documents relevant to the Fast And Furious scandal.  

Carter argues that Obama's incompetent mismanagement of the economy will tank him nicely for the election and that if Republicans use Holder "as a punching bag to defeat Obama, they may make him a martyr for the left to rally around." (Emphasis added.)

He compares Holdergate to Watergate and asserts that the mainstream media will not be willing to support Republicans against Holder, though of course they avidly supported Congressional Democrats against President Richard Nixon.

First of all, no one died in the Watergate scandal. Hundreds have been murdered in the Holdergate scandal, and Eric has helpfully assured us that "More people are going to die." 

Second, the lamestream media must report on everything that Mitt Romney says. All Republicans need to do is to make sure Mitt talks about the scandal at every opportunity. 

Further following the Watergate parallel he asserts that it is highly doubtful that there will be a Deep Throat in the Chicago Machine Democrat Obama administration - "You need to be well versed in the ways of Chicago politics to understand how the White House works."

Carter offers no more argumentation than this for his contention, and the 90 or so commenters on his article resoundingly counter him for cowardice in the face of the Chicagoland gang playing the race card. 

MidasRex writes, "Wow, so you've decided to let the race card win, even before it's played? Sounds... spineless...Good grief. Look, man - when they play the race card, you tear it up and burn it in their face - not whimper and hide in the corner."

The main reason that he is wrong is that the Republicans have a very easy counter to Obama playing the race card in the Holdergate scandal - hammering away at the fact that most of Holder's victims are Hispanics, who voted 67% for Obama in 2008 and who now have been betrayed twice by the African American hegemons of the Democratic Party. 

First, in the Fast and Furious scandal, and second, in the lynching of Hispanic Catholic and registered Democrat George Zimmerman, who has been disdainfully smeared as a "white Hispanic." in the death of Trayvon Martin.

Hispanic Democrats have been completely silent on the "soft core" (to borrow a term from Holocaust scholar Deborah Lipstadt) anti-Hispanic racism of Obama, Al Sharpton, and Eric Holder. 

These morons have started a race war between the two major ethnic groups on the progressivist plantation where there is no doubt who the Field Negroes are. 

Obama wants to play the race card on Holdergate? Fine, bring it on. All Republicans need to do is hammer away at the silence and complicity of Hispanic Democrats in the cover-up of the killing of Hispanics in Fast and Furious. And they are still being killed by weapons Obama and Holder have so generously place in the hands of the drug cartels.

If John Boehner and the Republican House leadership are nervous in the service, Katie Pavlich, Mary Chastain, Matthew Boyle and the rest of the awesome millennial generation Holdergate internets warriors need to hit them upside the head with a clue bat.

But why are Republicans chewing their fingernails waiting around for Obama to unleash #RACECARDFAIL? Why aren't they, for example, introducing a resolution to establish a National Day of Commemoration for the Victims of Fast and Furious on, say, the date of the martyrdom of Special Agent Jaime Jorge  Zapata, February 15?

On that day just over a year ago in 2011 in Mexico, 15 drug thugs armed with assault rifles surrounded a SUV carrying Jaime and another Hispanic-American Special Agent Victor Avila, who were unarmed. 

Avila survived. Jaime died of wounds from an assault weapon, a complementary gift from Eric Holder and American taxpayers to the drug thugs.

Why isn't Mitt Romney demanding accountability from Hispanic Democrats for the Holdergate deaths every time the subject comes up?

Jeff Carter and, unwittingly, even the most ardent Evangelical and Catholic exposers of Holdergate, think like Republican secularists. 

They have little understanding of the power of the Hispanic Catholic hierarchy and in particular the enormous cultural power of Hispanic and particularly Mexican Hispanic Catholicism. 

That power is about to be unleashed on America when Pablo José Barroso's For Greater Glory premieres in theaters on June 1. It has been a hit in Mexico since its premiere there on April 20.

It is an epic film account of the Cristero War of 1926-1929 waged by Mexican Catholics after they had exhausted every peaceful attempt to defend their freedom of religion. Hard-core militant atheist Mexican President Plutarco Elías Calles destroyed crosses, banned religious instruction in schools, and attempted to make the Catholic church heel to the demands of his regime. Sound familiar?

The very subject of the history of the Cristero War has been taboo in Mexico until recently. Barroso is a devout and committed young Catholic father of four children, and he made the film for them. 

The cast is a glittering list of Hispanic film stars: Andy Garcia, Eva Longoria, Eduardo Verastegui, and others including the terminally adorable 14-year-old Mauricio Kuri. 

Pope John Paul II canonized 25 of the thousands of martyrs of the Cristero War and beatified three others. Of these 28, no fewer than 8 appear in the film. Mauricio plays the role of the blessed José Luis Sánchez del Río whose was exactly Mauricio's age when he was executed by President Elias' troops.Here is how it happened:

Father Maciel recalled the gruesome events that transpired after the government's failure to break José's resolve on the evening of February 10, 1928:
 “Consequently they cut the bottom of his feet and obliged him to walk around the town toward the cemetery. They also at times cut him with a machete until he was bleeding from several wounds. 
He cried and moaned with pain, but he did not give in. At times they stopped him and said, ‘If you shout ‘Death to Christ the King’ we will spare your life.’ José would only shout, "I will never give in. Viva Cristo Rey!" 
When they reached the place of execution, they stabbed him numerous times with bayonets. He only shouted louder, "Viva Cristo Rey!" 
The commander was so furious that he pulled out his pistol and shot Blessed Jose Sanchez del Rio in the head. After being shot in the head, he drew in the ground a cross with his blood and kissed it as his time expired.”
No, Repubican secularists. This is not Darryl Issa vs Eric Holder. This is Eric Holder vs Hispanic Catholic Mary Zapata and all the grieving Hispanic Catholic mothers and grieving mothers yet to come of the martyrs to Holdergate. 

Call up Mary Zapata on the phone and make your arguments directly to her that her quest for justice for her son Agent Jaime Zapata is "not a smooth move." She's is in  the phone book.

Get a clue and a backbone.
