As we told you yesterday, Eric Holder made his contribution to fanning the flames of anti-GOP violence by saying “when they go low, we kick them.”
Eric Holder: "Michelle [Obama] always says, 'When they go low, we go high.' No. No. When they go low, we kick them."https://t.co/RIBtvaEF5t

Even Michelle Obama took Holder to task for his comments. Today Holder said it’s “obvious” his comments weren’t meant to be taken literally:
Ok, stop the fake outrage. I’m obviously not advocating violence. (In fact, when I was AG violent crime in the US was historically low.) I’m saying Republicans are undermining our democracy and Democrats need to be tough, proud and stand up for the values we believe in – the end.

When you were AG you were a gun runner and incited violence against law enforcement. https://t.co/Gs4CxgmgiP

Holders call for violence against Amaricans is clearly doing alot of damage to @TheDemocrats. This tweet says alot about the panic they are seeing within. #civility #ThursdayMotivation https://t.co/L38hkEVZqt

"I'm obviously not advocating violence," says the man who had literally advocated violence twenty minutes earlier. https://t.co/lxzbgTDD2M

Republicans aren't undermining our democracy.
Democrats are by whining about equal representation in the Senate and the Electoral College.

Progressives like Holder sure seem to have odd “values.”
