Ex-AG Holder: When Republicans Go Low, ‘We Kick Them’

Michelle Obama got it wrong, ex-Attorney General Eric Holder says.

At a recent campaign event for Democratic candidate for Georgia governor, Stacey Abrams, Holder revised the former first lady’s oft-stated advice that “when they go low, we go high” — urging instead, when Republicans go low, Democrats “kick them,” a video that surfaced Tuesday shows.

“Michelle [Obama] always says that, you know, ‘When they go low, we go high’ – no, when they go low, we kick them,” Holder said. “That’s what this new Democratic Party is about. We’re proud as hell to be Democrats. We’re going to fight for the ideals of the Democratic Party.”

Holder declared it is time for Democrats to be as “tough,” “dedicated,” and “committed” as Republicans are — and lashed out at the GOP for using their power “for all the wrong things.”

“They’ve tried to racial gerrymander, they’ve tried to partisan gerrymander,” he said. “. . . They want to keep themselves in power. They want to cater to the special interests.”

“We’re in this to win,” he added. “And the reality is if we don’t win, people who are less committed, less idealistic, less imbued with the values that make this nation really great, will run this country.”

Later in this remarks, he underscored, by advising to “kick them,” Democrats should not do anything inappropriate or illegal.

The aggressive admonition surfaced on the heels of Hillary Clinton’s assertion 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,” she said in the interview with CNN’s Christiane Amanpour.

  1. Well, there’s a 10 year old’s solution to a problem. If they (republicans) don’t do what you want kick (use violence) them. It is the MO of the Dem/Liberal party. Use violence when you don’t get what you want. Harassment, kicking, disturbing one’s peaceful meal, expose their personal information…these are all tantrum actions of a spoiled brat 10 year old. In light of this, I dub the Democrat Party as the Party of Ten Year Olds.

    • This statement made by an officer of the court, which also stands for much more than that, (I am not well-versed on the law, but it seems to me like this is language used to incite a riot, or domestic disturbance. For this man to make such an ignorant statement makes me wonder, WAS HE REALLY THE CHOICE BY THE BIG ZERO TO HOLD THE POSITION OF ATTORNEY GENERAL??? There is ENOUGH bad crap being distributed by the likes of ,MAXINE WATERS, and for CROOKED HILLY to be suggesting that civil disturbance, and violating people in a restaurant and promoting what is going to become the WORST STORM IN AMERICAN HISTORY! The storms that have hit AMERICA in the past three years alone, have burned, flooded, blown away, and have cost America exhorbetent amounts of money! Not to forget the Eruptions in Hawaii that also cost people everything that they had worked for, many their entire lives!

    • It is time for republicans to become pro-active not re-active. We have got to stand up to these bullies. Where did the message to not be a bully in our schools go? Oh, that’s just if you are a conservative. But if you are a liberal all bets are off!DC2Z

  2. when is this pos going to be held accountable for his crimes? He and his Obama gang of scum need to be wearing black and white uniforms.

  3. Both of them know if they don’t win the house and senate the doc’s will be released that will provide evidence to put them in jail.

  4. In 1969, while a freshman at Columbia, Holder was one of several dozen students who staged an occupation of the Reserve Officers’ Training Corps office, renaming it as the Malcolm X student center. Malcolm X was an American Muslim minister and human rights activist. To his admirers he was a courageous advocate for the rights of blacks, a man who indicted white America in the harshest terms for its crimes against black Americans; detractors accused him of preaching racism and violence.
    What does the attorney general do?
    As the chief legal officer of the states, commonwealths and territories of the United States, the attorneys general serve as counselors to their legislatures and state agencies and also as the “People’s Lawyer” for all citizens.
    I guess Republicans are not included in “all citizens”. It seems Malcolm X and Holder has the same philosophy in using violence.

  5. Can’t imagine anyone going lower than the Dems. Fighting for their values as Democrats? What values? Intimidate, bully, and threaten. So, just how many people have you convinced that your way is best? You can intimidate and threaten, and soon that loses its effectiveness, because you have changed no minds, you have accomplished nothing-I vote in private, and you have no way of knowing how my vote was cast-here in my town, we still use the paper ballots-I am not afraid of you-you can do nothing to me. If you kill me, then I simply get out of this world and into heaven sooner, and if you simply harass me, I am nearly deaf in one ear, so I can’t hear or understand your rantings and shouting-I have no stamina or energy to run from you, and frankly, I do not care what you say about me or my loved ones-lies, innuendo-I have been maligned by better more important people than you. I will only frustrate you in your quest to make my life miserable. It does not depend on you or your minions, or anything you do or say. So, do your worst-it matters not-you will simply show the world the kind of evil person(s) you are. Prison holds no trepidation for me-I could then live my life rent and utility payment free, medical care provided, and probably better exercise equipment and library facilities than I have now. So accuse me of anything you like-if I didn’t do it, I probably thought about it at some point.
