Fox News’ Brit Hume: Obama, Holder Use ‘Race’ To ‘Defend Themselves’ (VIDEO)

On Sunday, the “Fox News Sunday” panel took on the issue of race, discussing Attorney General Eric Holder’s implication last week that he is treated a certain way because of his race.

Fox News political analyst Brit Hume said that Holder and President Obama have “benefited politically enormously from the fact that they are African-American.”

“To those two men, race has been both a shield and a sword that they have used effectively to defend themselves, and to attack others,” Hume said.

Fox News contributor George Will said that liberals haven’t had any new ideas in a few decades, so they accuse people of being racist.

“Look, liberalism has a kind of Tourette’s syndrome these days. Just constantly saying the word ‘racism’ and ‘racist,'” he said. “There’s a kind of intellectual poverty now. Liberalism hasn’t had a new idea since the 1960s — except Obamacare — and the country doesn’t like it. Foreign policy is a shambles, from Russia to Iran to Syria to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. And the recovery is unprecedentedly bad.”

“So, what do you do? You say, ‘Anyone who criticizes us is a racist,” Will continued.
