Speaking on Sunday at a campaign event for local Georgia Democratic candidates, former Attorney General Eric Holder flatly rejected former first lady Michelle Obama’s widely cited call for civility and instead seemingly urged Democrats to brawl with Republicans.
“It is time for us, as Democrats, to be as tough as they are, to be as dedicated as they are, to be as committed as they are,” Holder told a crowd of campaign volunteers and candidates. “Michelle always says — I love her; she and my wife are like, really tight, which always scares me and Barack — but Michelle always says, ‘When they go low, we go high.’ No. When they go low, we kick ’em.”
After raucous applause, Holder, who served in the Obama administration from 2009 to 2015, added: “That’s what this new Democratic Party is about.”
Holder clarified later: “When I say ‘kick ’em,’ I don’t mean do anything inappropriate, don’t do anything illegal. But we’ve got to be tough. And we’ve got to fight for the very things that John Lewis, Martin Luther King, Whitney Young, all those folks gave to us. That stuff can be taken away. That’s what they want to do.”
