Eric “let’s give guns to the violent Mexican drug cartels and use it to justify more gun control in America” Holder has a long history of lies, slander, and generally opposing the right of people to keep and bear arms. It turns out Holder was advocating the brainwashing of Americans to make them think negatively about firearms:
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.
Don’t just take Breitbart’s word for it, they also provided the video of Holder saying these things.
Holder has been a gun control fanatic for ages and it’s not surprising that he was entirely complacent with Operation Fast and Furious. His desire to push the gun control agenda ended with people being murdered by guns given to violent Mexican drug cartels by the United States government. The state will go to any length it can get away with to disarm the populace. After all a disarmed populace is a far more easy populace to bring tyranny upon.
