Eric Holder, the former U.S. attorney general who served in the Obama administration, doesn’t agree with Michelle Obama on how to counter act Republican partisan attacks.

During a campaign event for Stacey Abrams, a Democrat in Georgia’s gubernatorial race, Holder revised a famous quote by the former first lady as he urged Democrats to be as “tough,” “dedicated” and“committed” as the Republicans are.

https://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/er ... d7ddef4a8d.

"Michelle Obama, I love her. ... Michelle always says, ‘When they go low, we go high,’” Holder said as the audience chimed in to repeat the memorable phrase.

Mr. Holder does not advocate violence. “When I say we kick them, I don’t mean we do anything inappropriate, we don’t do anything illegal, but we have to be tough and we have to fight,”, said Mr. Holder.

I'm sure our resident Cons will see what Mr. Holder has said as being violent, but fighting back without violence is possible....

Finally a Democrat wants to fight back. Being nice has not worked. We have to be willing to fight back. So far Democrats have not been willing to do so.

Obviously he was being metaphorical, but the idiotic messaging coming from the right about liberals suddenly being an unhinged violent mob (100 percent projection btw) doesn't help.

And inciting violence at his rallies against people he didn't like in the crowd. Or saying he could shoot people if he wanted. Or talking about using the 2A against Hillary if she won. Then there's the Nazi rallies, people killed and beaten, etc.

45 embraces ugliest side of Conservatives and uses for his own interest.

And before anything like that even happens, the cons are calling Democrats a "whacko mob." I agree with Holder, but when the cons try to turn it around, we shouldn't respond by backing down. Nothing Democrats will do can compare to the whacko behavior of Trump and his minions.

Dont wait to kick the motherfuckers until they're down. Kick them when they're up so they go down.

For some reason unknown to me, Democrats have been averse to fighting back....oh we cannot dare piss off the Republicans. We have tried being reasonable. Time to fight back.

I understood Holder's metaphorical point, and I get it and agree with it.

Thing is, it's the kind of statement that can easily be spun to be misunderstood, and I expect it will be twisted into this "angry mob" theme Trumpco has been on, lately.

I think Michelle had it right. people dont want incivility as a goal or end they want their reps to do good for them and to include their voice and fight for their interest. the incivility that they dont want to continue is the incivility between them and their reps betraying their interests even though they are there by the grace of their consent and paid a hundred and something thousand dollars a year.

There's low and there's low. Democrats worry too much. They couldn't be as slimy as the GOP if they tried. All the good old radical Democrats were fighters.

Arizona Republicans Plot To Smear Democrats is a EPIC FAIL!!

https://www.rawstory.com/2018/10/republ ... ows-faces/.

The plan had been for two Republican Operatives to pose as Communists and then make a donation to Democrat Tom O'Halleran' Campaign. They would then create a stir by "Proving" that Communists in Arizona were supporting Mr. O'Halleran.

The pair initially walked in to sign up to volunteer but had brought along a jar full of money that they wished to donate. After being directed to a finance staffer, they were told to fill out paperwork. In doing so, they identified themselves as members of the Northern Arizona University Communist party. They made clear they were not an official group but were holding meetings. But they also insisted upon a receipt.

When told they get only an emailed receipt, one of operatives immediately scratched out one email and wrote another. The entire process raised eyebrows among O’Halleran’s staff.

Lindsay Coleman, the finance director for the campaign, then drove to the local Republican field office to return the money. Almost immediately, the man who identified himself as Rosales appeared from a room inside the office and was identified as Oscar. He accepted the money from Coleman.

This is how Republican WORK. This is how Republicans LIE. This is how Republicans CHEAT!

I am guessing you must have been out of town and didn't hear about the democratic party and how they recently falsely accused a SC nominee of attempted rape and have being involved in a gang bang rape ring. Can't get much lower than that can you?

You just don't have what it takes to support and debate your beliefs and need a sounding board where everyone agrees with your position, how sad.

As for the former AG's comments. Of course he wasnt speaking literally but, there are way to many comments like that out there that some weal minded individuals will take as a call to action. We have the comments of Rep Waters [take him out] we have all the talk of being part of the resistance which of course is a military reference to France in WWII. All the Nazi and fascists name calling. We now have Holder's kick them reference. On a lessor note we have weal minded people here calling to get rid of people like me, every fucking one of you, and so on.

So take the handful of people with a big stage saying things like take them out, kick them and talking about the resistance. Couple them with the 1000's of people who call for getting rid of people like me and it won't be long before [ in fact it has already happened] weak minded people will take it as a call to action.

Think about it, each and every one of us likes to think of our selves as the person in Germany that would have resisted the Nazi's. Well keep up the talk and it won't be long before it becomes a self fullfilling prophecy. Had the gunman at the baseball practice been able to shoot well it would have already happened.

BTW, the PA. GOP candidate for governor says he will stomp on his opponent's face "with golf spikes".
https://www.cnn.com/2018/10/12/politics ... index.html

Incidentally, there was a nonviolent based resistance movement to the Nazis called the White Rose Society.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/White_Rose

Resistance doesn't have to be violent; Gandhi and many others have pointed to a way to do it without violence.

That's not fair. Being averse to being uncivil is not the same thing as being averse to fighting back. I'm all for productive ways of fighting back.

Being uncivil is not often a means of being productive.


I like what Michelle Obama said about how to counteract Republican partisan attacks. :)

I'm not really all that enchanted with Eric Holder.

We'll never know if the accusations were false, will we?

But keep up the drumbeat.

I keep telling you, if you want to debate sexual assault just let me know.
