Eric Holder's Department of Justice Funded Anti-Zimmerman Protest

It may seem inexplicable why the U.S. Department of Justice would fund a racially divisive protest while a criminal case was proceeding in the State of Florida, but Judicial Watch obtained documents showing just that.

The discovery was reported by Patrick Howley of the Daily Caller. As if the Department of Justice’s shabby track record couldn’t get any shabbier...

A division of the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) was deployed to Sanford, Florida in 2012 to provide assistance for anti-George Zimmerman protests, including a rally headlined by activist Al Sharpton, according to newly released documents.

 The Community Relations Service (CRS), a unit of DOJ, reported expenses related to its deployment in Sanford to help manage protests between March and April 2012, according to documents obtained by the watchdog group Judicial Watch.

According to the Daily Caller, the funding of the protest featuring race-baiter and rabble-rouser Al Sharpton, who Holder has a relationship with, is as follows:
  • CRS employee spent $1,142.84 to travel to Sanford, Florida from March 25-28, 2012 “to work marches, demonstrations, and rallies”;
  • CRS employee spent $751.60 to travel to Sanford, Florida from March 30-April 1, 2012 “to provide technical assistance to the City of Sanford, event organizers, and law enforcement agencies for the march and rally on March 31”;
  • CRS employee spent $1,307.40 to travel to Sanford, Florida from April 3-12, 2012 “to provide technical assistance, conciliation, and onsite mediation during demonstrations planned in Sanford”;
  • CRS employee spent $672.24 to travel to Tampa, Florida from April 18-20, 2012 “to meet with RNC official related to possible protests and demonstrations during the RNC.”

The Community Relations Service may have been founded to act as a “peacemaker” for community conflicts and tensions, but the politicized hard left has flipped it upside down: it is now actively promoting racial discord and strife to promote a partisan agenda. This is indisputable from the paper trail.

Let us briefly survey the behavior of Attorney General Eric Holder, this hand-selected political appointee of President Obama; it should be noted that the president refuses to fire him (and thus endorses his behavior).

Holder has a history of lying to Congress, advocated that schools “brainwash” people to not support gun rights, has undertaken dubious crusades (like opposing voter IDs), ignored racially inconvenient crimes — like New Black Panther voter intimidation, and even went so far as to say that case demeans “my people.”
