Eric Holder: Gun Owners Should
´Cower´ in Shame Like Smokers

Newsbusters, by Staff

Original Article

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

Does anyone else remember how hard some Republicans fought to keep Holder out of the Attorney General´s office when Clinton appointed him Deputy?

I am proud to be a grandmother and a gun owner.

And when I was a smoker, I did not cower in shame for doing something legal.

Has the world gone totally mad?

It is Eric Holder who should be ashamed.

So it´s ok to make up an "alternate reality" to make young people think the founding father´s vision for keeping liberty--i.e. having guns to thwart tyranny, BUT it not OK to simply lay out the facts about "his people".

Do folks remember the non-stop drumbeat against Alberto Gonzalez, Bush´s AG? I don´t even remember what it was for but everyday there was something about how he should resign. At the time I remember saying to myself, "this is what they want this guy to resign over" and now I don´t even remember what it was about.
This is precisely the durmbeat that should begin within the Conservative R´s regarding Holder: Holder must go!!! He is a menace to the office of AG, to the country and to the Constitution of the U.S.! What has happened to fast & furious? Nothing, all gone, done and Holder continues on his raping of the US Constitution and the American people´s long held beliefs! STOP Holder now! STOP Holder now! STOP Holder now! should become the new montra for the RNC, the NRA and all those so interested in preserving the integrity of our constitution. STOP Holder now! Holder must go! STOP Holder now! Holder must go! STOP Holder now! Holder must go! Come on everyone together...

"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" (Eric Holder, 1995)

Sorry, Mr. Holder, but when I was a young man, nobody thought it was ´cool´ or ´hip´ to carry a gun. None of my friends and nobody I knew carried a gun -- it was illegal; it was very illegal.

So just who are these ´young people´ who think it´s ´cool´ or ´hip´ to carry a gun? Maybe you ought to focus your attention on them.

By the way, how´s that gun control thingy working out for you in Chicago...?

"Gun Owners Should ´Cower´ in Shame Like Smokers"

Why?

The right to keep and bear arms is, and always has been, the mark of a free person.

The act of bearing arms is the assertion of that right for all to see.

To lay down the arms in any situation is an act of submission.

To surrender the arms is to surrender the last vestige of one´s belief in freedom.

As a teacher in a public high school with a 78 percent hispanic "student" body, it is my experience, generally speaking, that the kids who think "guns are cool" are victims´ class prototype obama supporters, who have a sense of entitlement, who come from families connected to the social services lifeline. What´s more these young people come from families who don´t place a high value on education and specialize in a soaring teenaged pregnancy rate. The final insult is that they operate somewhere between no loyalty to USA and resentment of USA. In this group, independent thinkers are very rare. The norm is a brainwashed dependable democrat voter for life who wants to tax the rich.

What does Holder know about shame?
He, who has advance well beyond his intelligence or capabiities bcause of AA
He, who implemented Bill Clinton´s pardons for $$ program, and obtaind pardons for Mark Rich, FARC, and others.
He, who failedto honor his oat of office in upholding the Constitution by dropping charges againt the NewBlack Panher thugs.
He, who ran the Fast and Furious gunrunning operation, and lied under direct Congrssional testimony, and used Executive Privelege as a cover-up.
He, who maaged the Justic Dept´s program to use the Voting Rights Law to subvert voting districts and encouraged illegal and fraudulen voters.
He, who picks and chooses whic laws he will support and defend, and chooses not to defend DOMA, immigration laws, election laws.
He, who has become a muli-millionaire while in public service.
The true shame is tht such an incompetent, deceitful, duplicitous, corrupt empty suit can occupy the ofice of Attorney General.

My only shame is at those who have let this formerly free country become what it is today.
Maybe that is about to change. More and more people are tired of caving. The drums are beating louder and louder.
Meanwhile, if you watch the comment sections on various web sites the useful idiots are still snickering. I guess they never heard of Pandora´s Box.

When Chief Justice John Roberts rewrote ObamaCare from the bench in order to save it, most of the ramifications were immediately apparent. But there was one aspect of the stunt that as a member of the Supreme Court Roberts should have been sensitive to: precedent. Having caved to a public intimidation campaign from the president and his congressional allies (as well as the media) Roberts signaled that the way to get a conservative justice to discard his better judgment and rule against constitutional law was to impugn the court’s reputation in the public square. Be mean to John Roberts and

Sen. Mark Begich has said repeatedly that he thinks President Obama is wrong about a host of policies, whether on oil drilling, the military or the environment. Begich also has made it perfectly clear that he has no interest in having his fellow Democrat out to his home state of Alaska, saying earlier this year that he doesn’t “care to have him campaign for me.” But that doesn’t mean he’s not looking for the president’s help. Begich has in fact submitted a long wish list to the Obama administration for agency decisions that he thinks would boost his reelection chances.

First, House Majority Leader Tom DeLay resigned in disgrace after he was charged with violating campaign finance laws and money laundering. Then, Rep.

The resignation of a Silicon Valley executive who opposed gay marriage and refused to recant has sparked an online fight among gays about whether proponents of same-sex marriage are now going too far in trying to marginalize their opponents socially and economically. The announcement by popular Web browser Mozilla Firefox that co-founder and CEO Brendan Eich was stepping down after two weeks on the job for a 2008 contribution has sparked furious debate over civil rights, privacy and corporate responsibility. A leading gay blogger has accused the movement of displaying the same intolerance activists accuse their opponents of practicing, while

On its present course, the Supreme Court will ultimately overrule its 1976 decision in Buckley v. Valeo, the landmark case upholding campaign finance “reform” legislation. It can’t come too soon, because Buckley expressly ignored the First Amendment’s injunction that “Congress shall make no law .?.?. abridging the freedom of speech.” Instead of free speech, we now have regulated speech that has ensnarled elections in a web of bizarre and opaque rules. Last week, in McCutcheon et al. v. Federal Election Commission, the court began edging away from Buckley by striking down one of its limits on free speech. The details

In 2008, Barack Obama and Brendan Eich both were against gay marriage. Senator Obama averred his support for the one-man/one-woman view of marriage, while Mr. Eich, a cofounder of the Mozilla web-browser company, donated $1,000 to support Proposition 8 — a California ballot initiative that had the effect of making Senator Obama’s avowed marriage policy the law in California, at least until a federal court overturned it on the theory that California’s constitution is unconstitutional. Barack Obama inexplicably remains, as of this writing, president of the United States of America, but Mr. Eich has just been forced out as CEO

When has a secretary of state been involved in so many disastrous, self-initiated negotiations? First, John Kerry convenes — against all advice and holding no cards — Geneva negotiations to resolve the Syria conflict and supposedly remove Bashar al-Assad from power. The talks collapse in acrimony and confusion. Kerry’s response? A second Geneva conference that — surprise! — breaks up in acrimony and confusion. Then, even as Russian special forces are taking over Crimea, Kerry goes chasing after Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov — first to Paris, then Rome, then London — offering a diplomatic “offramp.” Lavrov shrugs him off.

The chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee says investigators have uncovered evidence that a former Internal Revenue Service official may have committed crimes as part of the agency´s tea party controversy. Rep. Dave Camp set a committee vote for Wednesday on whether to refer Lois Lerner, who used to head the agency´s tax-exempt division, to the Justice Department "for possible criminal prosecution." Camp, R-Mich., did not specify which laws Lerner may have broken. Lerner´s lawyer, William W. Taylor III, has said she broke no laws. On Monday, Taylor emailed this response to Camp´s announcement: "One word: Ridiculous." Camp´s committee has been investigating

A caveat right off the bat: RAND’s estimate only runs through March 28 whereas the actual deadline for signing up was March 31st. Given the crush of traffic on Healthcare.gov in late March, many more people could have signed up over those last three days than were captured by these numbers. On the other hand, the White House was claiming six million sign-ups as of March 27. There’s no way to reconcile that with RAND’s data. One of them is wrong. Maybe both, in fact. There’s a big spike in Medicaid, just as everyone expected. There’s a less big but

As the House prepares for several key votes on former Internal Revenue Service employee Lois G. Lerner and potential legal action, analysts say she and her attorney have mishandled their case by picking and choosing when they want to talk, and to whom they are willing to talk. Ms. Lerner faces a vote in the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee on Thursday that could begin the process of accusing her of contempt of Congress. The Ways and Means Committee announced that it will hold a vote Wednesday on whether to officially accuse Ms. Lerner of breaking the law by

How does the Republican Party establishment choose its presidential candidate? Typically, constitutionalists accuse their establishment rivals of being moderate, risk-averse, stubborn old fools who lack faith in conservative principles. This is a soothing interpretation, as it begins from the hypothesis that the contest between conservatives and the GOP elite is a family feud. But there is another hypothesis -- less soothing, but, at least from an outsider´s bird´s-eye view, more reconcilable with the facts. This hypothesis is that America has reached a stage of progressive soft despotism in which the only important family feud in national politics is between the fundamentally

A founding father of the conservative movement who is now a star among Tea Party activists is urging the GOP to choose a governor to duel Washington “insider” Hillary Clinton for the White House, saying that 2016 isn´t the best time for Sen. Ted Cruz to run. Often called the “funding father” of conservatism for pioneering direct mail fundraising, Richard A. Viguerie believes that the Texas senator is a “game changer” for the movement but that the best way to beat Clinton is with a candidate from outside the beltway. “I don´t think it would be best for the conservative movement for

My first published column was in a local paper opposing the Equal Rights Amendment for the same reasons that Phyllis Schlafly, a conservative lawyer, campaigned on. As ambiguously written, the ERA, would eliminate the men-only draft requirement, repeal protective laws like sexual assault and eliminate the tendency for mothers to obtain custody over their children in divorce cases. Ironically, one of the arguments that helped sink the amendment from ratification was the fear that single-sex bathrooms would no longer be permitted. In addition, opponents of the amendment also warned that it would lead to abortion on demand and same-sex marriages.

This morning I clicked on a link to a Red State website article concerning “The War on Women” and “Paycheck Equality” and got quite a surprise (the same thing happens when a Firefox user goes directly to the article). Nanny Firefox posted a political opinion on my screen before allowing me to proceed to read the article. This message didn’t appear when I accessed a second article which met with Firefox’s political commissar’s approval. Here’s what Firefox said: Careful Now! (shouldn’t they have said “Achtung! or “Verboten!” or something similar?). This website could not be displayed by Firefox because it is not
