Former Obama AG Eric Holder: “When They Go Low, We Kick Them” … Welcome to the Intolerant & Violent Democratic Party
BE VERY CAREFUL WITH YOUR DEMOCRAT HATEFUL RHETORIC …
The Democrat party and the LEFT has become more and more intolerant and violent. As reported at the WAPO, during a campaign stop in McDonough, GA, former Obama attorney general Eric Holder altered former first lady Michelle Obama’s 2016 slogan, “When they go low, we go high” and in steads stated the new Democrat slogan is … “When they go low, we kick ‘em.” So this is what the Democratic Party is about these days? You kick them, seriously? And we wonder why individuals are being bullied in restaurants and on the streets and people receiving death threats. And this guy was the chief law enforcement officer under Obama? Doesn’t that explain a lot.
I guess we can be assured the Democrats will never go high again, as if they ever did.
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.”
REALLY AMERICA, YOU WANT TO ELECT A PARTY INTO POWER THAT ENDORSES ANTIFA?
From Powerline comes the chilling reality that Democrats actually endorse an organization that promotes polity violence. That is correct, Rep. Keith Ellison (D-MI) endorsed Antifa. Take a good look what the Democrat party has become. Antifi should be considered a domestic terror organization, not endorsed by U.S. Representatives. Antifa is the moral equivalence of Neo-Nazi’s; however, much worse. They actually have support of members of Congress. Ellison tweeted: At @MoonPalaceBooks and I just found the book that strike [sic] fear in the heart of @realDonaldTrump.
If you sometimes get the feeling that the Democratic Party has gone mad, you’re right. It has. Exhibit A is Keith Ellison, deputy chairman of the Democratic National Committee, who yesterday endorsed the fascist Antifa movement, which closely resembles the Brownshirts of the 1930s. Ellison tweeted this photo of himself with Antifa’s manifesto.
And to make matters worse you have the liberal media backing the play of this misguided member of Congress in Newsweek trying to spin for Ellison. The hacks at Newsweek want to defend Antifa and call all those who would oppose any type of violence, the alt-right. Seriously? This is shameful. So some how its a bad thing to be against an organization that promotes political violence? Does this mean that the liberal and bias MSM will defend the Neo-Nazi’s as well? What’s the difference?
THE POLITICAL RHETORIC IS GETTING OUT OF CONTROL …
As per s CBS News poll, an overwhelming number of Americans believe the political debate in America is becoming increasing uncivil. Well, maybe that is because it is. But then again, hasn’t it been uncivil for quite some time? However, since Donald Trump has become president, the LEFT has completely become unhinged and their so-called leaders have said some shameful and hateful things. Last week we were witness to a far-Left individual who volunteered on the Bernie Sanders campaign attempt a mass assassination of Republicans. Sadly, Americans who are polled only seem to be creatures of the moment as reported at the Politico, a majority approve of Congress’ handling of shooting. Wake up America, talk is cheap. One week later, Democrats are back to their old ways. What is ironic is that 85% of Democrats polled said that the current tone if political debate is encouraging violence and yet it is that that are causing the violence.
Members of Congress are getting positive ratings for the way they responded to the shooting in Alexandria, Virginia, last week. President Trump gets slightly lower — though still net positive — evaluations for his response to the attack, partly because Democrats are less likely to approve of his handling than of Congress’. Fifty-three percent of Americans approved of Congress’ response, and 29 percent disapproved, while 46 percent approved of President Trump’s response, and 36 percent disapproved.
And while Congress and many observers called for a more civil tone to political debate in the wake of the events, Americans of all political leanings overwhelmingly say that the tone and level of civility in our political debates has been getting worse in recent years.
These views are largely the same across ideologies, too, as about two-thirds of liberals, conservatives and even more moderates feel things have gotten worse.
Seriously America, take a good hard look to who is promoting and causing the violence.

WOW DONALD, THAT IS MIGHTY BIG OF YOU …
Donald Trump said Sunday in Staten Island, NY. “I hope it doesn’t involve violence, and I don’t think it will. But I will say this, it’s a rigged system, it’s a crooked system. It’s 100 percent corrupt.” Really Donald, you are still whining about this near one week later? With regards to Trumps comments that he hopes there is not violent, I would say, you are hardly doing anything to prevent it as you get people to a fever pitch with your rhetoric. There are plenty of things in politics that are rigged and corrupt, however, this is not one of them. I wonder is this is how he acts in his own business when he has to follow the rules that are set up to bid a contract? It is disconcerting that Trump does not seem to grasp the delegate process that has been around forever. If he cannot understand and navigate his way thru this process, what is he going to do when it comes to the electoral college and the job of president of the United States?
Folks, you don’t get to be a king when you are president. Note to Republicans, isn’t that one of your main gripes about Barack Obama?
Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump said Sunday that he hopes a contested Republican convention in July “doesn’t involve violence” if he is denied the nomination during second-ballot voting.
“I hope it doesn’t involve violence. I hope it doesn’t. I’m not suggesting that,” Trump told reporters on Sunday here in Staten Island. “I hope it doesn’t involve violence, and I don’t think it will. But I will say this, it’s a rigged system, it’s a crooked system. It’s 100 percent corrupt.”
Trump said Saturday that the Republican National Committee is in for a “rough July” if he does not receive the nomination despite his overwhelming delegate lead. If the billionaire fails to cross the 1,237-delegate threshold necessary to clinch the nomination outright, anti-Trump conservatives hope to challenge him at the convention and install an establishment-friendly alternative.
More from Ann Althouse …
Said Donald Trump today. Does he sound like he’s encouraging violence even when he’s saying he hopes there won’t be violence? If so, it’s because he doesn’t say “I don’t want violence” or “I urge my supporters to refrain from violence.” There’s something oddly passive about “I hope it doesn’t involve violence” — as if he holds no sway with his supporters, as if he’s suggesting it’s up to the other side to resist doing the things that will necessitate violence from my people. So I hear a vague, deniable threat. And this too contains a vague, deniable threat:
