Former Obama Attorney General Eric Holder did away with any semblance of civility at a recent campaign event, telling an angry mob of supporters that “when (Republicans) go low, we kick them.”
And the angry mob he calls friends responded with an even more harrowing take, applauding the call to violence and responding with chants of “Fight, fight, fight!”
“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 says at the event.
“Michelle (Obama) always says ‘When they go low, we go high,'” he continued. “No. No … When they go low, we kick ’em.”

Holder took the cue from the angry crowd chanting ‘fight,’ adding “That’s what this new Democratic Party is about.”
“We’re proud as hell to be Democrats,” he said. “We’re going to fight for the ideals of the Democratic Party.”
Holder’s incendiary rhetoric played out in Georgia, a state where a Republican Senator had to urge his colleagues to defend themselves against harassment from paid protesters, following an incident where he and his wife were followed throughout Reagan National Airport, with protesters shouting repeatedly – even when the congressman hit the men’s room.
The comments echo those of Hillary Clinton, who also tried to stir up the base and whip them into a violent frenzy recently.
“You cannot be civil with a political party that wants to destroy what you stand for, what you care about,” Hillary said in an interview with CNN’s Christiane Amanpour.

Holder and Clinton got exactly what they wanted when unhinged liberals are chanting “fight, fight, fight!”
It’s exactly what Maxine Waters wanted when she told supporters to accost and harass Republicans in public. It’s what Cory Booker wanted when he told his brain-dead supporters that they need to “get up in the face” of GOP lawmakers.
It’s what they all wanted as they sat around and allowed protesters to run Republicans out of restaurants, when they laughed at people who violently attacked Rand Paul, when their aides started doxxing and threatening the children of lawmakers, and when they continued to up the ante despite an assassination attempt on a congressional baseball field.
This isn’t exactly a new mantra for the Democrat party. They’re just following the lead of Barack Obama who once famously declared, “If they bring a knife to the fight, we bring a gun.”
‘They go low, we kick them’ – ‘They bring a knife, we bring a gun.’
Same message, different voice.
This is your modern Democrat party in action. Don’t you dare offer them a backhanded justification for violence and incendiary rhetoric by staying home in November.
Vote these thugs out, or make sure they never get power again!
