Eric Holder to Republicans: ‘You want to have a knife fight, we’re gonna do it’



In an interview with the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, Former Obama Attorney General, Eric Holder discussed an upcoming Milwaukee election. He argued that he is willing to do anything to win. Including having a ‘knife fight’ with his Republican competitors.

His group sued Rebecca Dallet’s challenger GOP Gov. Scott walker to try to force him to hold elections to fill two vacant seats in the state Legislature. “He considers himself a conservative, I’d say he’s regressive. He’s doing whatever he can to maintain power, surrounding himself with people who share those views,” said Holder of Walker.

This is when things got really ugly. Speaking like a lawyer, in one sentence he says he is against violence and breaking the law, yet in the next sentence he explains doing just that.

“We have to be ready to, you know, not do anything inappropriate, not do anything improper, certainly not do anything unlawful. But to the extent that they want to have a fight, let’s do it. You want to rumble, let’s rumble. You want to have a knife fight, we’re gonna do it,” said Holder.

Do you think this was a pretty inappropriate thing for him to say? More and more often we see liberals resorting to violence to get what they want. When will it end?
