The Daily Caller, Sept 30, 2012
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.”
Black radicals from the same group also occupied the office of Dean of Freshman Henry Coleman until their demands were met. Holder has publicly acknowledged being a part of that action.
The details of the student-led occupation, including the claim that the raiders were “armed,” come from a deleted Web page of the Black Students’ Organization (BSO) at Columbia, a successor group to the SAAS. Contemporary newspaper accounts in The Columbia Daily Spectator, a student newspaper, did not mention weapons.

I always felt that the hair ball, known as Eric Holder, was a criminal at heart. Then as an assistant to Janet Reno, and being the lead man about Waco, he proved he is capable of mass murder. A true slimy hair ball, that even my cat can’t match.
“Holder has publicly acknowledged being a part of that action.”
Hence his criminal resume that ‘qualifies’ him for politics.
Hemp should be making a huge comeback soon.
In the 60’s and 70’s a lot of people did the same thing and worst. All they talked about was that the government was bad. Then after a number of years, these same people became elected official or appointed by their friends and nothing changed
Gee…but when Eric Holder occupies a place, it’s OK.
Yea, I see how it is.
