Of course he is for the 2nd amendment. Ya f'n right.


Breitbart.com has uncovered video from 1995 of then-U.S. Attorney Eric Holder announcing a public campaign to "really brainwash people into thinking about guns in a vastly different way."
Holder was addressing the Woman's National Democratic Club. In his remarks, broadcast by CSPAN 2, he explained that he intended to use anti-smoking campaigns as his model to "change the hearts and minds of people in Washington, DC" about guns.

"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 changed our attitudes about cigarettes."

Holder added that he had asked advertising agencies in the nation's capital to assist by making anti-gun ads rather than commercials "that make me buy things that I don't really need." He had also approached local newspapers and television stations, he said, asking them to devote prime space and time, respectively, to his anti-gun campaign.

Local political leaders and celebrities, Holder said, including Mayor Marion Barry and Jesse Jackson, had been asked to help. In addition, he reported, he had asked the local school board to make the anti-gun message a part of "every day, every school, and every level."

Despite strict gun control efforts, Washington, DC was and remains one of the nation's most dangerous cities for gun violence, though crime has abated somewhat since the 1990s.

Holder went on to become Deputy Attorney General in the Clinton administration, and currently serves as Attorney General in the Obama Administration.

The video of Holder's remarks was uncovered by Breitbart.com contributor Charles C. Johnson.

WAR IS PEACE, FREEDOM IS SLAVERY, IGNORANCE IS STRENGTH and GUNS ARE BAD.

Arms are the only true badge of liberty. The possession of arms is the distinction of a free man from a slave. - Andrew Fletcher 1698

the real question is what else do they use these tactics for. Just because you are paranoid doesnt mean they arent out to get you. This isnt surprising, but hopefully people take notice.

People don't agree with us? Better brain wash children to make sure future generations agree with us!

I am not a smoker, never have been, but the way the anti smoking campaign held itself made me sick. Bully people into following what you want.

I wonder if AG Holder actually realizes that the problems are more complex than his intelligence level allows him to solve? Or if he really believes the things he says?

And since '95 we've gotten all but 1 state to issue carry licenses, 4 states constitution carry, Heller, McDonald, the repeal of hundreds of anti gun laws and ccw permits along with gun ownership in general has skyrocketed! How's that brainwashing worked out for you Holder?
"A strong body makes the mind strong. As to the species of exercises, I advise the gun. While this gives moderate exercise to the body, it gives boldness, enterprise and independence to the mind. Games played with the ball, and others of that nature, are too violent for the body and stamp no character on the mind. Let your gun therefore be your constant companion of your walks"

Nice clip. Shows his true agenda and methods. No-one can believe a word out of his mouth. This video should be on the news each time he makes some comment about "Fast and Furious" or other.

If Holder was just talking about encouraging gang-bangers to go back to the day when people were considered a coward to use a gun instead of their fists, then I would agree with him. But pushing an agenda that "Guns R' Bad" is one of the dumbest, most offensive ideas out there.

Unfortunately, too many of the public agrees with him.

I've heard the flawed argument many times that from brainwashed educated people that "Guns Should be Banned because they are made to kill people". Yes, it looks like the brainwashing worked to some degree.

I wonder what Eric Holder will do now that the New Black Panthers have put a bounty on the head of George Zimmerman? Will it be a repeat of their action against voter intimidation by the New Black Panthers? Maybe they think brainwashing is their principle job.
Disarming the people (is) the best and most effectual way to enslave them. George Mason

Remember the 1991 Luby Cafeteria Massacre of the Unarmed (Kileen, Texas before Texas Concealed Carry) Do we need 23 people to die in a similar incident before we're allowed effective self defense?

Three school masacres have been stopped by civilians with firearms. Two with handguns and the third by a guy with a shotgun. (Pearl, Ms; Appalacian School of Law; Edinboro,Pa)

Holder isn't going to anything about the NBP based on what I see in this quote.

No bias there I guess, just a slip of the tongue like some of the others he's made.

"This Department of Justice does not enforce the law in a race-conscious way," declared Attorney General Eric Holder in a House oversight hearing yesterday. But Politico reports on an exchange during the hearing that suggests otherwise. Rep. John Culberson, a Texas Republican, was questioning Holder about the New Black Panther Party voter-intimidation case, which the department dismissed after Holder took over:

The Attorney General seemed to take personal offense at a comment Culberson read in which former Democratic activist Bartle Bull called the incident the most serious act of voter intimidation he had witnessed in his career.

"Think about that," Holder said. "When you compare what people endured in the South in the 60s to try to get the right to vote for African Americans, and to compare what people were subjected to there to what happened in Philadelphia--which was inappropriate, certainly that . . . to describe it in those terms I think does a great disservice to people who put their lives on the line, who risked all, for my people," said Holder, who is black.

Nothing will be done by Holder and his merry band. He has already said he will not prosecute black folks.

Could that statement be called racist?

If you do not think his brain washing is working just remember the kids in grammar school being suspended for drawing a picture of a gun or folding paper to resemble a gun. Yes at least the teacher and the school board are brain washed.

It is working very well and using our tax dollars. :D

I blame the Republicans for this man being in office. They had the hearings and things come up but surely this could have come up. To many of our lawmakers in DC that belong to the Republican party have less knowledge then we do on many things. The Dems well I can say when you elect Bobby Rush, Sheila Jackson Lee, Barney Franks, Shumer, Feinstein, Maxine Waters and a whole lot others they have no knowledge other then getting things passed to move their progressive agenda.
Guns don't kill people, Gun FREE zones kill people!

WHY CARRY A GUN? Because carrying a Cop would be too heavy.
