Number one New York Times bestselling author Brad Thor was scheduled to speak on The Glenn Beck Program Monday about his new book, Act of War. But in something Beck said he has never seen, Thor grew so heated after seeing Attorney General Eric Holder claim there is a "racial animus" behind the opposition to President Obama, the author forwent 9 minutes of airtime to sell his book so he could react to Holder.
"Mr. Holder, the one true racist in this dialogue is you," Thor remarked. "You see everything through the prism of race. You are the racist. You are using racism to cover up the inadequacy of the performance of the president of the United States, and the absolute dereliction of duty in your office. You, sir, are the racist."
Thor said there is a "war on truth" in this country, and "it's coming from the left."
"We have had such success in this country, as far as getting away from racism," Thor remarked. "There is no more institutionalized racism in the United States. We have a black president -- that was a historic, very proud moment for this country. And for Eric Holder and his ilk -- they want to use racism as a shield and a sword. So the people who are preventing a real dialogue about race in this country are people like Eric Holder."
Thor said Holder's comments were "not really about racism," but rather, the "failure of leftist ideology" and "the failures of the Department of Justice, starting with Fast and Furious going all the way through the IRS scandal."
Thor said he hopes change is coming, because the black community has been let down "time and time again by people like Barack Obama, by the Democrat Party."
"I want everyone in the United States to be successful," Thor said. "I want Hispanics, white people, Asians, I don't care. I don't see skin color. What I see is fellow human beings, fellow citizens, fellow citizens of the republic of the United States of America."
"But people like Al Sharpton, people like Barack Obama, are only successful to the degree to which the people they purport to represent are not successful," Thor continued. "It is a completely inverse relationship. ...They only serve to harm black communities, and that needs to be addressed."
"You want to have a real conversation about race? Let's have a real conversation about race," Thor concluded. "This is an attempt to chill free speech. That's exactly what Holder's up to, and Obama hides behind that shield, as well."
