FLASHBACK:Eric Holder: Gun Owners Should 'Cower' in Shame Like Smokers
NewsBusters ^ | 1/10/13 | NB Staff

Posted on 01/10/2013 9:34:40 AM PST by illiac

The hot new video at MRCTV.org is 1995 footage of Attorney General Eric Holder, when he was the U.S. Attorney for the District of Columbia. In his remarks before the Woman's National Democratic Club, broadcast by CSPAN 2, Holder said people should be ashamed to own guns, just the way that cigarette smokes now "cower outside of buildings" to smoke.

"What we need to do is change the way in which people think about guns, especially young people, and make it something that's not cool, that it's not acceptable, it's not hip to carry a gun anymore, in the way in which we’ve changed our attitudes about cigarettes. You know, when I was growing up, people smoked all the time. Both my parents did. But over time, we changed the way that people thought about smoking, so now we have people who cower outside of buildings and kind of smoke in private and don’t want to admit it.” Laughter followed. (Video at link)

He spoke real truth about Oppressives there.

The bigger question is, why do we tolerate human excrement like him in the upper echelons of our government?

Both my wife and 30 YO daughter are scheduled to take the Basis Handguns 101 course next week....one night of classroom and one night of shooting (200 rounds).

I’m going to get with them Saturday and we’ll pick out the weapons they’ll use and we’ll familiarize them with the two weapons before the class.....they are really excited!

When my three grand daughters are old enough, they’ll get the same training and opportunity to see what it feels like to be able to protect oneself.

Let's see...

Eric Holder and his minions violated at least 15 federal firearms laws. Eric Holder and his minions violated at least 6 international firearms trafficking laws. Eric Holder and his minions armed a known subversive, terrorist group, which has attempted to overthrow the Mexican government. Eric Holder and his minions are accessory to murder. Eric Holder and his minions have committed conspiracy relating to the above violations.

Eric Holder, in short, has violated the Geneva Conventions (and Protocols), and committed treason against the United States (see above re: Mexico).

Yep, Eric Holder is the best pick 0bama could have made for AG.

He is tolerated because we tolerate a Muslim with no Birth Certificate in the White House.

A majority of voters put Obama in office and he put Holder and so many other morons in office, then that same majority elected the Muslim again.

This is why we should replace Eric Holder with Geoffrey Holder. At least he would have a great laugh.

No way a majority of voters put that ass back in office, a majority of voting machines might have. But the voting fraud was done about as competently as the rest of the things these idiots have done.

I have called both of my state senators today to tell them that Fast and Furious needs to be brought up during these gun grabbing discussions. Obama and Holder can’t continue to get away with sending hundreds of weapons to Mexico and Benghazi that ended up murdering Americans and just take the 5th. They need to be held accountable, then they can talk about legal gun owners rights.

Brainwash and cower...

The Holder takeaway. He's from the government and he's here to help you.

I've seen where the NRA has come out with a hit back statement to the gun grabbers, today.

Where are the GOP on ALL of this??

Oh, never mind.

People who believe in their right to freedom of speech should be ashamed and cower in fear.

People who believe in freedom of religion should be ashamed and cower in fear.

People who believe in the their God given natural right to self protection by owning guns should be ashamed and cower in fear.

People who believe in freedom of association should be ashamed and cower in fear.

If you believe in that old white-people's rag called the US Constitution/Bill of Rights thing, then you should be ashamed and cower in fear. That's the message of the Obama "Administration".

My message to the hobgoblins leading the Democrat Party is that they and their minions of filthy, smelly, sexually degenerate retards who support them are the ones who will "cowering in fear" in the future if they persist on course they chosen.

At that time, he was US Attorney for the District of Columbia.

My guess, the context of his talk was “the epidemic of urban violence” and the glamorization of guns and the thug life in a certain sub-culture and demographic, which it would be racist to spell out.

If he wants to brainwash that demographic (young urban black men and boys enamored of the thug life, to spell it out and be racist and all) to think that guns are not cool, more power to him.

It isn’t going to work though, and that’s one reason why I like my Second Amendment rights.

Cultural social engineering works. They got the smokers.

But it can be turned around on the left. Incrementalism and public opinion can be used to shame people who slaughter unborn children.

Cower in fear? I didn't when I smoked--more like stood tall in defiance.

That posture will continue until that bungwipe and his buddies are outta there. (unless we're taking fire--then I'll be behind cover).
