Holder cancels appearance in OKC due to angry protests: He was told not to come.

The Washington Times reports that Attorney General Eric Holder canceled an appearance before the Oklahoma City Police Department’s graduating cadet class Thursday amid angry protests over his scheduled visit.

A Justice Department spokesman denied the trip was canceled because of the possibility of a hostile reception, but we all know it’s because Holder addressing police cadets about integrity is as hypocritical as one can get!

It’s been reported that Holder’s scheduled visit to Oklahoma City drew the criticism of several conservative lawmakers who planned the protest in anticipation of his arrival, including Republican state Rep. Paul Wesselhoft, who has said he believes that Mr. Holder should be impeached.

“Our protest has turned into a victory celebration because we frankly didn’t want him here — and we succeeded,” Mr. Wesselhoft said in an interview. “This man has used his position to advance his own political agenda and that’s not right. He swore to uphold the U.S. Constitution and defend it for all of us — not some of us.”
