Eric Holder's dirty past: As college student participated in ‘armed’ takeover of former Columbia University ROTC office

As a freshman at Columbia University in 1970, future Attorney General Eric Holder participated in a five-day occupation of an abandoned Naval Reserve Officer Training Corps (ROTC) headquarters with a group of black students later described by the university’s Black Students’ Organization as “armed,” The Daily Caller has learned.

Department of Justice spokeswoman Tracy Schmaler has not responded to questions from The Daily Caller about whether Holder himself was armed — and if so, with what sort of weapon.

Holder was then among the leaders of the Student Afro-American Society (SAAS), which demanded that the former ROTC office be renamed the “Malcolm X Lounge.” The change, the group insisted, was to be made “in honor of a man who recognized the importance of territory as a basis for nationhood.”


The SAAS was part of a radicalized portion of the Columbia student body whose protest roots were hardened in the late 1960s. Its members collaborated with the SDS to stage a series of protests on the New York City campus in 1968, the year before Eric Holder arrived on campus.

Those earlier protests culminated in a separate armed takeover of Dean Henry Coleman’s office in which students held him hostage and stopped the construction of a gymnasium in the Morningside Heights neighborhood, near the campus.

The BSO reportedon its website as recently as 2010 that those students were “armed with guns.”

Emboldened by their successes, SAAS leaders continued to press their demands, eventually working with local black radicals who were not college students. A young Eric Holder joined the fray in 1969 as a college freshman.

The SAAS also actively supported the Black Panthers and the Black Power movement, according to Stefan Bradley, professor of African-American studies at Saint Louis University and author of the 2009 book “Harlem vs. Columbia University.” He has described the Columbia organization as being separatist in nature.

You are so right!!!

I never listen to mainstream media.  Their attitude toward everything I hold sacred and believe in has been a subject of lies and mockery on these liberal networks.  All they do is make my blood boil.  Rush or Sean always talk about the news of the day so I get the truth from them.  Univision, a spanish language have been doing, what our mainstream refuses to do.  These Obama Mouthpieces who call themselves Journalist don't know the meaning of the word. Hoping the country begins to realize the lies they are being told by these imposters of real newsmen of the past who were a balance against Government lies.  Today all these Liberal Media are complicit in the Government Lies.  They are no different than the old Soviet Union's Pravada.

                              There is no one in this administration that should not be in prison for something because they are all radical communists and racists .

not surprising...bill ayers, obama...and all the rest of these lefties are all radicals, with the intent of turning this country into a communist country, with a large powerful centralized government. now they cannot do this legally, especially with a constitution, so they do this creeping socialism, where little by little, things are changed, and with every word, and every action they take, it all has a central goal, to what we are seeing today....look at all the chicago contacts that obama and holder have in chicago....they are either muslim radical, radical black theology organizers, admitted communist, and just plain radical, with a history of anti-american corruption behind them.

There is an old saying - -"A leopard doesn't change its spots"!  If you follow holder, over the years, you'll discover his "spots" (ideology) certainly have not changed one iota; this incident took place in 1969- -as a college freshman, he was probably 19 years old.  Even after "maturing" (at age 30, or so); in 1985 he was "involved" in a "terrorist bombing", elsewhere in the US- - in April1995, he was "involved" in the bombing of the Murrah Federal Bldg., in Oklahoma City; there, 168 "innocent" men, women AND children died (because of his actions)! So, as recently as 2009, or 2010, we find him "involved in" Fast and Furious!  This should tell you ALL you need to know about this "instigator/agitator" (domestic terrorist)!

Our government has been taken over by criminals.

This whole bunch is  made up scumbags and Anti-Americans.  They need to be purged from government tried for treason and then deported or exiled or whatever.  They are like a cancer in our society and if not eradicated nothing but evil can come from them.  If we had  some real men in leadership they could probably be convicted of numerous crimes and locked up.

Is anyone in this present administration not from a radical group?

How can anyone in their right mind believe Obama is OK for this country when all he has around him are the likes of these.

Holder is actually a criminal at heart . we have criminals in our government---elected by the people, That says something about the American voters who put this clown Obama in office

OK were the hell was all this infor when he was put up for the job-to little way to late

Dorothy Steward , Relying of vulgar language to get you point across just proves you have no point . The only thing that is too little too is your education . As it turns out liberals are nothing but a bunch of lemmings following a fraud and usurper over a cliff . Maybe when they hit bottom they (  liberals ) will wake Up but I'm not holding my breath .
