Should the former chief law enforcement officer of the United States be calling for violence?

https://www.foxnews.com/politics/eric-holder-rejects-michelle-obamas-call-for-civility

****

"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," Holder told a crowd of campaign volunteers and candidates. "Michelle always says -- I love her; she and my wife are like, really tight, which always scares me and Barack -- but Michelle always says, 'When they go low, we go high.' No. When they go low, we kick 'em."

3. Don't be such snowflakes

He was talking figuratively.

"Holder also clarified later in the speech that when he says to "kick them," he doesn't mean doing anything inappropriate or illegal."

4. In a climate where Congressmen are being shot, attacked at their homes

and receiving packages with white powder, perhaps violent metaphors aren't the best idea.

5. Now picture Trump saying those exact words, would the MSM not yell it from the roof tops?

Its kind of like how the left slammed Palin when she made posters with crosshairs on it

15. You are making me laugh



I'm not going to spend a lot of time with you folks tonight. I actually have a life. If you come up with something really profound and I don't respond, don't think it's because you've outsmarted anyone.

18. Sorry but you know i'm right, now scamper off.

You know deep down where you can't even admit it too yourself that if Trump has said exactly what Holder did the media would harp on it for days.

27. The rest of what Holder said for full context

“Now, when I say, you know, ‘we kick ‘em,’ I don’t mean we do anything inappropriate. We don’t do anything illegal. But we’ve got to be tough and we’ve got to fight for the very things that John Lewis, Martin Luther King, Whitney Young, all those folks gave to us. That stuff can be taken away. That’s what they want to do.”

He should have used different language than he did, "kick 'em" was absolutely the wrong way to say it but the clarification was given during the same speech and it does matter.

10. You are using that term "Snowflakes" I do not think it means what you think it means

Reacting to calls for physical violence is totally proper.

You don't get to say "kick people" and then try to walk it back later.

Kick me, holder. I will kick your punk little ass so hard your grandma will feel it.

16. No it was definitely there

He can "take it back" all he wants. His intent was perfectly clear.

And lefty has made it clear violence will be how it operates.

Soon, Conservative patience will run out.

You might want to relocate when that happens.

17. He said he didn't mean violence right as he was saying it.

He didn't "take it back" as in correcting it later.

"You might want to relocate when that happens." That sounds like threat. Is that your intention?

19. He meant it exactly as he said it. He meant violence

No threat intended. I think lefty needs to be ready when Conservatives say "enough!" of lefty's constant calls to and execution of violence.

No one has unlimited patience.

23. It absolutely was not a threat -- it was pointing out that actions have consequences

lefty is so slow I went to the drug store and had a coke and got back home before lefty even made it there.
