Eric Holder, our Attorney General, went to Long Island on Sunday, December 13, to speak at what was called a public meeting being held at the Memorial Presbyterian Church located at 189 Babylon Turnpike, Roosevelt, NY. It was actually a church service and Holder didn't speak until the end.
Introduced by his brother, William, (who is a member of this church)
and with his 84 years old mother, Miriam, in attendance,
this was a morning dedicated to the youth of this congregation. That's fine, it is the Christmas Advent Season, after all. So, inside the church politics was not on the menu, but outside there were about 40 -50 citizens who demanded that Holder stop the outrage of Terror Trials in New York City.
The security that accompaniedHolder denied this photographer and others as well the right to stand on a public sidewalk to take photographs.
They boldly stated they were taking away our First Amendments rights for the day and threatened to take cameras and make arrests if we did not cease taking pictures of the protesters.....
Hmmm....Guess that's Eric Holder's America for ya.... The future? Considering this church community is committed to their youth, to the future ...it was disturbing to witness such faithful, "no-questions-asked" admiration for Holder based on race...not on deeds.
Since we couldn't operate the cameras easily inside the church, this is as close as we could get: a short video of pictures with music!
