QOTD: an elected official

by digby

.... hard as it is to believe, this person is not some local wingnut radio host.  He's the Lt. Governor of Missouri:
There is more racism in the Justice Department than anywhere I see in the St. Louis area. We've come an enormous way in 50 years, that's not to say that we don't have still more to do. It is the left, it is the Eric Holder and the Obama left and their minions that are obsessed with race while the rest of us are moving on beyond it."

"The whole blow up of this protest movement was based on the lie that never happened of ‘hands up don’t shoot. But it’s bad enough the protestors were behaving that way but we have a right to expect more from the attorney general, the head of the Justice Department of the United States, and the president of the United States. And instead what we got too often from them was incitement of the mob, and, uh, encouraging disorder in Ferguson and distributing the peaceable going-about of our lives in the greater St. Louis region.”
Also too, this:
Kinder added President Obama and Eric Holder “took one side” following the death of Michael Brown. Asked why, he said the Justice Department was “staffed with radical, hard-left radical, leftists lawyers.”

He called the Justice Department under Holder, “not like any Justice Department in American history” and “Eric Holder is unlike any previous attorney general.”

“Many of them have spent most of their careers defending Black Panthers and other violent radicals,” he added. ”

I don't know about you, but I'm convinced. Racism no longer exists.
