Attorney General Eric Holder scolded The Daily Callers reporting on the Fast and Furious gun-running scandal shortly after government officials and reporters heard him admonish Americans for funding gun-runners.
Holder appeared Tuesday at a White House event to showcase a new media campaign that is intended to stigmatize the selling and buying of knock-off videos and counterfeit fashion products.
Holder recorded one critical radio ad, which is titled You can help. The clip was played to the audience in the White House auditorium.
This is Attorney General Eric Holder. We are working hard to protect our communities by reducing gang violence and organized crime and there is an important and simple way that you can help. Some street gangs and organized crime groups are selling counterfeit products, such as fake watches, DVDs and purses, as an easy way to make money. And they use that money to fund other crimes, like trafficking in drugs and guns.
When you buy knock-offs on the street or online, although it may not be obvious, you could be supporting gangs, putting money in their pockets and helping them to engage in other illegal activities that put our communities at risk, said Holder in the radio ad.
More than 50 congressmen have called on Holder to resign because of his role in Operation Fast and Furious, which allowed gun-traffickers to buy thousands of guns in the United States, and then allowed them to transport those guns to violent drug gangs in Mexico.
The guns trafficked in Fast and Furious have been linked to the deaths of more than 300 people in Mexico, and at least one U.S. law enforcement officer. Hill legislators have subpoenaed the White House for more information on the gun-trafficking program, but White House officials are refusing to hand over documents.
None of the legislators calling for his resignation are Democrats.
Holder is a Democrat, and formerly served as a top lawyer for President Bill Clinton.
Holder appeared to blame The Daily Caller, not congressional alarm over the administrations gun smuggling and resulting murders, for the resignation demands.
You guys need to you need to stop this. Its not an organic thing thats just happening. You guys are behind it, he told TheDC.
The spin machine is in action today. Too bad none of these crooks will ever find their just reward; they will just move from GubMint job to GubMint job....
Of course. Why didn’t I realize this before? It’s our fault.
Here is the cover up Holder is using.
He needs to rot in a jail cell full of organicly motivated inmates who remember Waco.
He's right. Americans named Holder and Geithner and...
He learned well from his boss. Blame everyone else and stick to their norm and “Deny, deny, deny.”
Sad to say, Newt may be the one Pubbie with enough stones to start the knife fight in the phone booth of the Dems. It will take cojones of brass and a spine of steel. Newt needs to look the camera in the eye while he calls out Zero and J Edgar Holder on their consistent lies.
Place him in a Mexican prison.
Admit nothing, deny everything, make counter-accusations. That’s how they roll.
“....Too bad none of these crooks will ever find their just reward; they will just move from GubMint job to GubMint job....”
It’s all backwards anymore. We the People ARE the government, and these asshats in Congress, POTUS, etc. represent the will of the people, otherwise they would hold their own elections. Seems to me the American People as a lot are cowed by these alleged “representatives” of the people.
We have to reach out, and remind Americans who is the boss.
Enough of us circling their sanctuary in D.C., and they will come around to our way of thinking.
We need to rile up the American people, fire up the TEApot, and pour us a cup of action. If they think like we want them to think, then there will be some convictions.
You are behind getting our agents killed you turd..You and the other incompetent ass holes in Washington..If they don't do something about you and your ilk then I know God will.. Obama Coned his way into the white house and took his thugs with him..This thug Holder should get what is coming to him and that is prison..
Huh? Daily Caller trying to take credit for something it had absolutely NOTHING to do with????
What utter nonsense. Holder belongs in prison for the rest of his life. Sounds like The Daily Caller is in Holder’s gunsights.
"More than 50 congressmen have called on Holder to resign because of his role in Operation Fast and Furious, which allowed gun-traffickers to buy thousands of guns in the United States, and then allowed them to transport those guns to violent drug gangs in Mexico."
"Holder appeared to blame The Daily Caller, not congressional alarm over the administrations gun smuggling and resulting murders, for the resignation demands."
No, The Daily Caller has updated a number of times the increasing count of Representatives calling for Holder's resignation.
Okay. Thank you. I didn’t get it.
Yes, Eric, the press stacked up hundreds of bodies just to make you look bad. /s
Yeah so do I, their names are Eric Holder and the ATF
Holder should be rotting in a jail cell.
Holder should be rotting in a jail cell.
Doesn’t make sense. Holder’s here. Why would be be sending guns to Mexico?
Holder's here. Why would we be sending guns to Mexico?"
I blame Eric Holder and Barack Obama.
Wait, wait: That means I blame one American and one Kenyan-cum-Indonesian.
Holder's going batty...
Here is an interesting post from the WH Insider.
There is a little gem of a statement about how Holder has been off the reservation more than once.
So someone is spinning that Holder is soon out and that he was off the reservation.
