If you’re tired of Hollywood using their venues to promote their liberal, political agendas, you’re not going to like this one. CBS is developing a new show about Eric Holder of the Obama Administration.
Newsbusters has the story:
In the words of Dave Barry, “I swear I am not making this up.” According to Vulture, CBS is “ordering a pilot for Main Justice, a show based on the life of former attorney general Eric Holder.”
Really. Would that be the Eric Holder who joined a student occupation of an ROTC facility and mau maued Columbia University into naming the building after Malcom X? Or is the the Eric Holder who advised Bill Clinton to issue the last-minute pardon of big-time Democratic money man Marc Rich?
No, Vulture says the show “centers around his life in the Justice Department.” Ah, so it’s the Eric Holder that called the U.S. “a nation of cowards” because we didn’t want to talk obsessively about race relations. The one who refused to defend in court the Defense of Marriage Act. And the Eric Holder who dismissed the airtight case against the New Black Panthers intimidating white voters at a Philadelphia polling place in 2008. A former DOJ voting rights attorney charged that the decision was “motivated by a lawless hostility toward equal enforcement of the law.” Main Justice!
Any way you look at it, Hollywood trying to do damage control through popular culture methods. Eric Holder is serving as executive producer on the show. How nice for him.
