Holder’s wild days

Attorney General Eric Holder was quite the college rabble-rouser, a new Daily Caller report details.

During his days at Columbia University in the 1970s, Holder opted for a bit of anarchy instead of following those pesky things called rules, the Daily Caller report details. The article notes that:

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.”

Holder is now the United States’ highest-ranking law enforcement official, but in his wild youth, his actions helped the ROTC headquarters ultimately be renamed the Malcolm X lounge, the article notes.

It also details the radical nature of the black student organization with which Holder was involved, including its support of the Black Panther Party. Holder has bragged about his involvement in the “rise of black consciousness” protests at Columbia, the article adds.
