Washington Examiner, 1995 -
“Eric Holder, now Obamas attorney general, proposed using various levers of media and pop culture to attach a social stigma to guns, just as smoking has been stigmatized in recent decades.
One thing that I think is clear with young people and with adults as well, is that we just have to be repetitive about this, Holder told the Womens National Democratic Club while discussing how to curb gun violence in D.C. Its not enough to simply have a catchy ad on a Monday and then only do it every Monday. We need to do this every day of the week and just really brainwash people into thinking about guns in a vastly different way.
To that end, he called for the creative community those ad agencies that create these snappy ads and make me buy things that I dont really need to focus on convincing young people that its not acceptable, its not hip to carry a gun anymore. He emphasized that newspapers and television need to devote prime space to these ads.
Holder also called for people who have influence over youngsters, entertainers, athletes, to be involved in this program as well
Holder’s use of the word “brainwash” is quite telling. How can anyone believe events such as this in the school system are not an integral part of the overall attempt to disarm and “remake” the U.S. What other explanation could there be?
Where are the politicians?
Where is the NRA?
Where are the parents who will challenge this state-sponsored behavior?
Where are parents who will say “My child did nothing wrong. The child that should apologize to the bus driver is the child who cried “fire” in the face of a non-emergency, a non-threat.”
Where are those that will argue this is clear example of one aspect of the broader poliitical correctness used to attain the goals of Hitler and Stalin?
Meanwhile, the “letter of apology” for the fabricated offense was no doubt read in various classrooms, leading the rest of the student body to conclude something really bad had occurred. This, of course, satisfied the agenda even better than kicking the kid out of school for a period of time.
