J. Christian Adams is a former Bush Administration Justice Department official. And, he is clearly NOT fond of Attorney General Eric Holder or the way AG Holder is running the Department of Justice. He has been quite critical of AG Holder and claims that the department is "race-obsessed." Right Wing Watch brings us this interview he did with Newsmax last Friday regarding the Ferguson issue. That was pretty rancid in and of itself.

From Right Wing Watch:

So, it’s unsurprising that Adams has been making the rounds in the right-wing media to claim that the Ferguson protests are all part of a plan by the Obama administration to divide Americans based on race in order to win the coming midterm elections.

In an interview with Newsmax on Friday, Adams showed particular contempt for the lawyers in the Justice Department’s civil rights division (where he worked under Bush), who he accused of being “anti-police, racially saturated, paranoid lawyers” and “rancid, rotted, corrupt racialists” who are incapable of acting in an unbiased manner because they recognize that racism exists.

“They think that the deck is stacked against African Americans everywhere, that you can’t get a fair shake in the criminal justice system, that people act with a racial intent all the time,” Adams said with derision. “These are people who think totally differently from most Americans.”

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
