In a shocking display of tone-deaf irresponsibility, former Attorney General Eric Holder, tweeted out a callous and contrite Tweet, defending himself after immense backlash from his speech where he encouraged his followers to “KICK” Republicans.

It’s concerning that a former AG doesn’t realize that his words have consequences and that emotionally unstable people may feel they now have a mandate (and blessing) to unleash violence. Holder should be apologizing, not lecturing the American people.
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.
