Obama and Holder Tried to Prevent Release of Michael Brown Robbery Video

No racism to see here

Holder’s Justice Department attempted to suppress the release of the video in order to promote the Trayvonization of Michael Brown.

Covering up the truth is second nature to these people, whether it’s deleting IRS emails, blaming YouTube for a terrorist attack on US diplomats or holding back a tape showing that the latest innocent 300 lb “child” was a criminal.

Obama Inc. has nothing but contempt for transparency and FOIA requests, but Ferguson cops on the other hand knew that they were being lynched and had no choice.

The Department of Justice urged Ferguson police not to release surveillance video purporting to show Michael Brown robbing a store shortly before he was shot and killed by police, arguing the footage would further inflame tensions in the St. Louis suburb that saw rioting and civil unrest in the wake of the teenager’s death.

Ferguson Police Chief Tom Jackson released the video Friday, telling reporters that he had no choice because the media requested the release under the Freedom of Information Act. The Department of Justice, which is conducting its own investigation into Brown’s Aug. 9 death, has had a copy of the footage all along and never considered releasing it to the public, the source said.

Flashback to what the new DOJ stands for.

“If you want to call me an activist attorney general, I will proudly accept that label,” Holder said. “Any attorney general who is not an activist is not doing his or her job.”

    Transparency. Don’t let reality and the facts be known. It’s the Obama way.

  • pupsncats

    Holder’s DOJ, like the IRS, VA, State Department, HHS, NSA, Homeland Security and all others in Obama’s administration, is nothing more than the takeover of the federal government by racists and ultra-leftwing anti-America criminals. There is no such thing as justice, liberty, transparency, or accountability to the taxpayer and American citizens and legal residents. The plan is and always has been the destruction of the foundations of American power and influence and the totalitarianism of all of human existence. Every act, every policy, every thought of Obama and his band of SS/KGB/Gestapo supporters is designed to, once and for all, get us on our knees in praise and in awe of an all-controlling State. Worse, all acts, every policy and every thought is designed to advance our enemies and make us defenseless. This is the truth about Obama’s fundamental transformation of America.

      Yes, and their is an unmistakable racial aspect to their conspiracy. The blacks are using automatic weapons in our large cities, but you never hear of the ATF, FBI, of the InJustice Department cracking down on the massive illegal gun trade of the drug gangs. Their single focus is getting guns away from whtes.

    • The March Hare

      The communists tried to get race riots started in the 30s with the case of the Scottsboro Boys. They have been actively recruiting blacks since the 1920s. Paul Robeson, et al. They have always thought that using blacks was their best hope of a take over.

      • pupsncats

        The Communists/Progressives/Liberals of today are trying damn hard to get the bloody revolution started too. They have been trying to use blacks, women, homosexuals, and Hispanics against whites, the young against the old, women against men, and of course, the wealthy against everyone for decades hoping that at least enough in one of these groups would start rioting so they can march in like Lenin and finally exterminate all of their enemies and implement their totalitarian rule.

    “…arguing the footage would further inflame tensions….” Meaning that release of the video would further incriminate Brown, the 300-lb beast who also assaulted the store owner and walked off with the cigars and the Swishers. After all, we wouldn’t want to “prejudice” public opinion by casting evidentiary aspersions on the thug’s character, would we? That would be…racist. Only Obama, Holder, Al Sharpton, and Jesse Jackson are permitted to be racists.

    • truebearing

      The video release inflamed tension in the racist Whitehouse. If Obama and Holder have their way, blacks will be allowed to have guns, but not whites. There isn’t any doubt about what they are up to.

    • Gregor Hofreiter

      I am from Germany and I don’t know much about politiks in the USA. But I think it’s very racist there. We German’s learned from the war even though there are sign’s and new revelation’s and documents that the Polish government was planning to attack.
      However we German’s think that America hasn’t learnt anythink at all. Your magazine is attacking Mr. Obama relentlessly. The black minority who built America and the Muslim Americans suffer a lot.

      I think you should reach out and give them a chance.You cannot make war to everyone like Bu$h did.
      I think this Police Man shot the boy out of racist motives. I saw a lot of movies which prove that. American police is very violent always tell me my aktivist friend’s.
      It’s not the point if the violent Police man REALLY murdered the boy just for fun or in an act of selfdefence. Our German judges would jail him anyway. Right so! Police just should stop oppress the people and then the riot’s would stop immediately. Simple as that. You white americans should embrace all colour’s and all people. It’s just racist what the police does.
      We German’s understand that Mr. Obama is a very good President but he’s being blocked by the extreme rightwing Republican party. You also should be thankfull for Obamacair which is very good. Now at last all people have an insurance and not only the Republican rich 1%.
      You white American’s have to make up for the black and the muslims. You should tunr a blind eye on the ALLEGD black and muslim aggression because these people are despereat and that’s why they struggle against the police.on the streatz.
      Germany should serve you as a role model.

        Mein Freunde Gregor:

        America is long past racist, at least most of us. There are always people who benefit from keeping racism alive. They are also the ones who try and turn every event into a racist event, like Al Sharpton.

        You must realize, that while Black Americans make up 12%, they also commit 50% or more of the violent crimes. Police response to these people has nothing to do with their race.

        White Americans have to make up to no one. In the past 200 years we have progressed more, than Europe and the rest of the “Civilized World” has progressed in the past 10,000 years. If anything, YOU OWE US!

        Mr. Obama is the absolute worst thing to happen to this country. If Obama would have been President during World War 2, you in Europe would have been overrun and destroyed by the National Socialists. Again, YOU OWE US!

      • Feet2Fire

        Stop the nonsense. If anything, Germany should be paying US reparations for introducing NAZIsm into the world, thus setting us up for the Socialist Nightmare we currently endure.

        –Go away, you silly troll!

      • De Doc

        You are a clown fellow. If you are the end product of what Germany offers to the world, I am very thankful that my own ancestor left your lands some 260 years ago for the shores of America. Arrogant Euro trash who started the two most destructive wars in human history and suddenly the US is the problem. Natürlich! /sarc/

      • oeb25

        STFU, Kraut. You admit you NO NOTHING and your post shows it big time. Obama is a waste of skin and the worst president EVER. Now go away, Alinsky troll.

      • The March Hare

        You may or may not be German, but if you are, you are only German descent, not an immigrant. You have no talent to imitate a recent immigrant and stand out as a HUGE phony. You even try to type with an accent with your K’s replacing G’s at the end of some words and C’s in others. You think that’s how a German nationalist would type it. How childish. For all the command of English in your text and then to come up with “streatz” is hilarious. Just shows how ignorant you are. You shouldn’t get your information from movies.

  • De Doc

    The “Gentle Giant” mantra died pretty quickly. As the investigation continues, we’ll see if the shooting was justified or not. As for Michael Brown, I’m pretty sure a violent end would have been his fate, probably at the hands of some shop owner or more likely another wanna be gang banger, had this incident not occurred.

    • Drakken

      You just gotta love that guy Darwin, always taking care of nature in his own way.

    • truebearing

      It’s just a shame it didn’t happen sooner, and at the hand of a fellow thug, but Obama and Holder ignore those shootings.They are only interested in whites shooting blacks. They may get more of it than they wished for if things keep going the way they are.

      • Gregor Hofreiter

        I don’t comply with your statement. If it weren’t for the racist police there would be noch trouble at all. This young boy was forced to steal because of the racist american climate. My aktivist friend’s tell me the police is very brutal and intimidating. And I saw a movie about that who white Americans brutally suppress the black minority who built America and the Muslim minority who run America. Geroge Bu$h messed it all up say my friend’s and Mr. Obama is being blocked only for racist motives although the Repulican’s are secretly approving the Vision’s and Politik of Mr. Obama. Instead of bashing him you should be proud of this man who love’s America. One dove make’s no summer as we German’s use to say ;-) One Mr. Obama cannot rescue the world but YOU can support him and then there will be no more trouble on the streatz. Belive my, I’m German and I’m proud of that, because our people never oppressed the Indian’s.

        • mikeh420

          Yeah, you Germans just killed about 12 million people between 1938 and 1945. But at least no Indians. How about all the AFRICANS that YOUR people killed in Zuidwest Afrika from 1884 to 1915?

          Sie sind ein Heuchler

          • Drakken

            Not many were killed by Germans in Afrika mate, sorry, but accuracy counts.

        • De Doc

          Pot, kettle, black. Oops! Sorry. Was that racist?

        • Feet2Fire

          You are no German; you’re just an idiot troll. And you are fooling nobody.

        • Drakken

          As I am German, your are nothing but a self hating, self loathing communist who I have nothing but utter contempt for. Just wait until Europe finally starts getting rid of the muslims in their midst, you leftys will be following them.

        • hyedenny

          I’m German too. Your friend is a complete moron, and you are even worse for believing what he says without doing your own research. It’s fools like you who are the reason we have this traitor in the White House in the first place!

        • JewelWaters

          “Forced to steal.” Right. Blaming others for his own actions is your first mistake.

          Not a young boy. Medical & legal define anyone >18yo as adult, esp 6’4″ 300lb MAN.

          Yes, many Germans were involved in early American clashes with Native American Nations (they are NOT INDIANs – they have NEVER lived in INDIA).

          Get an education and try to apply your learned info logically and rationally . Your ignorance & foolishness are beyond nauseating.

        • truebearing

          You’re on the wrong website. You were looking for “Blithering Idiots R Us.”

          You probably won’t be up to their level either, but better there than here.

        • catherineinpvb

          Oh yes, of course. And as well, our Cowboys did not gas their Jewish neighbors. Well, here for sure, in your comment, ‘stupidity’ does not need to search for itself.

        • catherineinpvb

          (As for Obama not being able to ‘rescue the world’. . .can only say you do have a talent for expressing the absurd, which frames, easily, the ‘stupid’ of the rest of your story. )

  • edlancey

    You did it yourselves with all your civil rights bs – you were told by the “haters” exactly what would happen.

  • onecornpone

    What other open and shut cases are O-hole and A-hole playing fast and loose with? These two middle age punks were/are petty criminals themselves.

    Why would’t they cover up for the thug?

    We can believe nothing government says on any topic as long as these commie cretins are running the show. They have made a farce out of our Dept of Justice. The ramifications of their tenure will cripple our legal system for half a century.

  • Dandee

    Holder makes it his job to ratchet things up and find victims of one color only. Worst attorney general ever and we’ve had a few. Tswana Brawley is calling. Also that Duke Lacrosse rape accuser….

    • mikeh420

      He’s a Community Agitator just like his boss.

    • Bob Simpson

      Don’t forget who hired him.

  • Chimpelle Obongo

    The ‘Gentle Giant’ has proved to be a ‘Giant Thug’…just as many suspected. Brown was no angel, flashing gang signs and robbing people while using strong~arm tactics. He more than likely did attack the officer and probably did reach for the officer’s gun; if it comes down to a ‘he said/police officer said’ I will believe law enforcement. The primary witness to the shooting was also Brown’s accomplice in the robbery and Dorian Johnson has an outstanding warrant for another crime he committed not that long ago.

    Like Trayvon we have thugs being thugs ending up like all thugs. Those of you who are screaming for justice for Michael Brown should know that he got justice: in the form of a BULLET.

    Bravo for Ferguson Police Chief Tom Jackson! Truth is Truth, and Justice is Justice. Let Truth and Justice prevail! (despite any and all efforts to the contrary…)

    • hyedenny

      Justice hasn’t prevailed since 2008 — and I won’t be satisfied until the whole of obama and Co. is locked up behind bars for life. The lot of them are traitors and villains.

      • Feet2Fire

        Agree 100%. Hopefully, others are finally waking up, too.

  • Red Dirt Shirts, HI

    For Eric Holder (he murdered Brian Terry) to not only be in the same room with, but behind the mic with Al Sharpton let’s you know how racist they both are. Holder should be in prison serving a life sentence for killing a US Border Patrolman. He has NO rights to offer advice…especially something that you know he is so biased about.

  • Bob Simpson

    “If you want to call me an activist attorney general, I will proudly
    accept that label,” Holder said. “Any attorney general who is not an
    activist is not doing his or her job.”

    I think a race baiting, corrupt, stonewalling, liar would be the more appropriate call!
