Holder Victim-Stancing

If you haven't heard the term victim-stancing before, it means constanly looking for ways to casdt yourself as a victim, rather than admit that that your problems might be at least partially self-imposed.  This 2/27/15 Politico  article reports that Holder not only wantsw a lower standard of proof for federal civil rights violations, but he was picked by Congress for being black:
Attorney General Eric Holder plans to push, during his final weeks in office, a new standard of proof for civil-rights offenses, saying in an exit interview with POLITICO that such a change would make the federal government “a better backstop” against discrimination in cases like Ferguson and Trayvon Martin.

In a lengthy discussion ranging from his own exposure to the civil rights movement of the ’60s to today’s controversies surrounding the shootings of Trayvon Martin and Michael Brown, Holder also acknowledged that he felt some of his own struggles with Republicans in Congress during his six years in office were driven partly by race.

“There have been times when I thought that’s at least a piece of it,” Holder said, adding that “I think that the primary motivator has probably been political in nature … [but] you can’t let it deflect you from … your eyes on the prize.”

I am tempted to change the name of his political party from Democrat to Victim-Stancer.  Whil there is some ugly history in America about how blacks were treated, the major cause of problems for black Americans today is usually blacks: black criminals picking on their neighbors; black kids treating education by their peers as "acting white"; black politicians who run big cities as public feeding troughs for teacher unions.

And because this victim-stancing is so successful as a political strategy, many other groups have jumped on the victim-stancing wagon of the Democrats: the "rape culture" of colleges; homophobia; you name it.

I agree they are all about victimology. The worse thing is that by always responding to all opposition as racism, homophobia, etc is that it is a simple cop-out to saying they can't be challenged on anything.

It's too bad but I knew from the get-go in 2008 when he appeared that all Obama would be is the non-stop refrain: All you opposers are racists so don't challenge or criticize me. Same with Holder.

I sure wish the Republicans could field a good and decent Black man (or woman) with intelligence, common sense and solid conservative beliefs. Basically the exact opposite of Obama, Holder and all the other affirmative action "characters" that POS has in his administration.

I'd love to vote for that Black Republican and watch the lefties go all racist on that candidate. Not unlike what they did to Clarence Thomas.

It would be nice to see the Republican's shake it all up with non-white and female candidates on the ticket. That would take a lot of air out of the "Republicans are all old, evil and rich white guys!"

The Democrats have always been Victim-Stancers. Their list of preferred victims changes every few decades.

I prefer to call them the DemonRAT Party or the MVP [Moochers and victims Party]. or the Free Sh#t Party.
