Eric Holder: Gun Owners Should ‘Cower’ in Shame Like Smokers
Vision To America ^ | January 12, 2013

Posted on 01/12/2013 11:33:58 AM PST by yoe

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.

(Congress Votes Attorney General Eric Holder in Criminal Contempt)
Were Mr. Holder white and a Republican he would be fighting for his freedom from inside a prison. Holder is part of what is clearly the most corrupt administration America has ever voted into office.

Holder is a criminal who gave weapons to terrorists
and the drug cartel to murder Americans and innocents.

It is HE who would cower, if the Congress had
one testicle between them. But, alas, they do not.

Actually, “progressives” like Holder should be the ones cowering in shame - over the inner city conditions their policies have wrought.

That’s a fine way for a public servant to talk about some of the people who pay his wages - what an absolute dirtbag!

Herr Holder, what is best in life?

"To crush your enemies -- See them driven before you, and to hear the lamentation of their women, while the men cower in shame, afraid to use their guns for fear of seeming racist!"

Oh they are cowering all right.

Looks like many non-gun owners are cowering themselves right on over to the gun shop to become a gun owner.

Good job.

The hussein regime wants to disarm American citizens while arming Mexican drug runners and Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt (with 20 F-16’s and 200 tanks). Got it.

Dear Eric,

Nothing you and Obama ever do will change the way I think about anything. In fact I currently think the US is being led by criminal psychopaths who enact idiotic policies such as arming Mexican Drug Cartels and Islamic Terrorists. Since the US has admitted actually doing those things, I will continue to think this way.

Mr Holder needs to learn a bit of humility if he is to be just.

And Communist-dictator wannabes should cower in shame for the 200,000,000+ people they have murdered so far.

And it should be noted that all those democides were preceded by draconian gun control laws.

MURDER BY GOVERNMENT

As a freshman at Columbia University in 1970, future Attorney General Eric Holder participated in a five-day occupation of an abandoned Naval Reserve Officer Training Corps (ROTC) headquarters with a group of black students later described by the university’s Black Students’ Organization as “armed,” The Daily Caller has learned. Department of Justice spokeswoman Tracy Schmaler has not responded to questions from The Daily Caller about whether Holder himself was armed — and if so, with what sort of weapon. Holder was then among the leaders of the Student Afro-American Society (SAAS), which demanded that the former ROTC office be renamed the “Malcolm X Lounge.” The change, the group insisted, was to be made “in honor of a man who recognized the importance of territory as a basis for nationhood.” Black radicals from the same group also occupied the office of Dean of Freshman Henry Coleman until their demands were met. Holder has publicly acknowledged being a part of that action. http://www.alipac.us/f19/college-student-eric-holder-participated-%91armed%92-takeover-former-columbia-u-264682/

At my very Conservative and traditional church of Christ congregation, most of us don't drink alcoholic beverages -- a holdover from the days of the Stone-Campbell Reformation movement. A good number of us though are smokers and because we're not at all into political correctness, our kitchen area has plenty of ashtrays for those who enjoy a cigarette or two.

And, as I've mentioned in several other threads, there are quite a few of us who carry our weapons to worship, including the preacher. He'd probably be about as welcome as Satan, but if Eric Holder were to come by for services, we'd be able to teach him a thing or two about liberty and real Christianity. Heck, if he were to truly repent and be baptized, even someone as vile as Holder would be treated as brother in Christ. And we might even light up a cigarette together! :-)

His Buddy Obama is so frightened he gave himself lifetime Secret Service protetion.

Speaking of Cowardice.

How would you like to be Obama’s Secret Service detail for life? That would have to be one of the worst punishment details ever.

He’s right. I DO cower in shame when I consider that my puny weapons are no match for the firepower held by governmental authorities. The same authorities who do not trust me to defend myself against criminal excess.

My cat can handle himself, but I weep for any dog, who patrols helplessly in the yard, cigarette between his teeth, awaiting a bullet from a brave LEO, intent on demonstrating his bravery.

Never trust a government that doesn’t trust you...
