Why Congress Must Demand That Barack Obama Fire Thomas Perez Immediately

On November 13, 2009, Thomas Perez was sworn into the office of Asssistant Attorney General for Civil Rights (Ed: take note of that tragic irony as you watch the video below).

The Oath of Office Perez swore or affirmed to that day, as prescribed by 5 USC §3331, is as follows:
I, [name], do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter. So help me God. [Ed.: Bold emphasis added]
In the video clip below, you will watch as Perez repeatedly and pointedly refuses to answer a direct question posed to him by Rep. Trent Franks while Perez was under oath during congressional testimony. Franks uncomplicated question was this:
“Will you tell us here today, simply, that this administration’s Department of Justice will never entertain or advance a proposal that criminalizes speech against any religion?”
It is my view that Thomas Perez violated his Oath of Office by failing to bear true faith and allegiance to the Constitution of the United States of America, and that accordingly, he is unfit to serve as an Assistant Attorney General or in any other capacity as an officer of the federal government.

  1. Thomas Perez fits comfortably within ObamaNation "Big Tent".

    Freedom of Religion and Speech are the First Amendment. DOJ should be ashamed to have a moron like this appear before Congress. But they have no shame, as we've seen over and over and over and over for the past four years.
