Holder: “When They Go Low, We Kick Them”

Eric Holder on Republicans: ‘When they go low, we kick them…’

“It is time for us as Democrats to be as tough as they are, to be as dedicated as they are, to be as committed as they are. Michelle always says, Michelle Obama, I love her. She and my wife are really tight. Which always scares me and Barack. Michelle always says, ‘When they go low, we go high.’ No. No. When they go low, we kick them.”

For the second time this week, a leading Democratic voice is proposing that the party pursue a meaner, more combative approach — with this one going so far as to allude to metaphorical violence.

During a campaign swing in McDonough, Ga., on Sunday, former attorney general Eric Holder notes former first lady Michelle Obama’s high-minded 2016 slogan, “When they go low, we go high.” Then he makes clear he disagrees.

“No, no,” Holder says. “When they go low, we kick ’em. That’s what this new Democratic Party is about.”

Several minutes later, Holder clarifies that he’s not advocating anything illicit.

“When I say we, you know, ‘We kick ‘em,’ I don’t mean we do anything inappropriate. We don’t do anything illegal,” Holder said. “But we got to be tough, and we have to fight for the very things that [civil rights leaders] John Lewis, Martin Luther King, Whitney Young – you know, all those folks gave to us.” More

I really am starting to get the feeling the Democrats are wanting this cold war to go hot. They are desperately trying to egg on their useful idiots. With the Left inciting violence and committing violence, Patriots have exercised extreme self-restraint, but this will only last for so long because we will eventually respond when there are no other options left.

The Hill:

Holder’s comments surfaced one day after Hillary Clinton dismissed the idea of civility between Democrats and Republicans, saying that “you cannot be civil with” the Republican Party because it “wants to destroy what you stand for, what you care about.”

“If we are fortunate enough to win back the House and or the Senate, that’s when civility can start again. But until then, the only thing that the Republicans seem to recognize and respect is strength,” Clinton said in an interview with CNN. More
