Holder in 1995: Let’s brainwash Americans with anti-gun messages
Not surprising at all. During a speech to the Woman’s National Democratic Club in 1995, our present-day Obama administration Attorney General Eric Holder wanted advertising agencies to create anti-gun campaigns to brainwash people and get free TV airtime.
Holder notes the young people in America are saturated with violence in media and entertainment, so it’s the job of all of us to change the way people – especially young people – think about guns. He wants to make carrying a gun uncool. Well that would be all fine-and-dandy if the attorney general could brainwash the criminal element into not thinking it was cool to carry a gun, but there is no way in hell that’s going to happen.
Want to make it uncool? Make gun crimes a serious felony where you get locked up for decades.
Sure, in part he’s speaking to kids and teens about their attitudes about guns, but his message is clear. Those kids and teens eventually become adults – he mentions adults in the speech as well – and Holder’s message is all about a culture change.
Holder wants you to feel ashamed if you feel the need to carry a weapon to defend yourself at home or in public when all you want to do is even the odds against a criminal and protect yourself and your family. There is something wrong with you if you think that way, so his answer is to brainwash you.
Instead of messing with the hearts and minds of Americans, maybe he should be targeting the hearts and minds of the entertainment industry? Holder talks about getting innovative and creative while working to change the hearts and minds of Americans. Can anyone say Fast & Furious?
Holder: “We must really brainwash people into thinking about guns in a vastly different way”.
