From mobs pounding and clawing at the door of the Supreme Court to Hillary Clinton saying that Democrats should dispense with civility, the left has completely lost their minds over new Justice Brett Kavanaugh being confirmed to the SCOTUS. And now Eric Holder, Barack Obama’s former attorney general is attacking the Court and urging people to use their “rage” to “be rid of these people.”
Holder is very angry that Kavanaugh got in and he’s still over Merrick Garland.
From Daily Wire:
“With the confirmation of Kavanaugh and the process which led to it, (and the treatment of Merrick Garland), the legitimacy of the Supreme Court can justifiably be questioned. The Court must now prove – through its work – that it is worthy of the nation’s trust,” Holder wrote Saturday on Twitter.
Holder continued to whine about Merrick, who was nominated by Obama but never voted on by the Senate, and further complained that Republicans are appointing judges to federal benches across the nation (note to Holder: The party in control of the Senate appoints judges, just so you know, FYI).
“As you lament the Merrick Garland outrage never forget that McConnell and R’s did not fill lower court seats for YEARS. Those are the seats being filled now. Use the rage of today to get people out to vote and be rid of these people. Your voice matters. Your vote counts. VOTE!” he wrote.
So here’s the former attorney general attacking the legitimacy of one of our Constitutional institutions because his side lost. And calling for “rage” to “be rid of these people” when already there have death threats to Kavanaugh and GOP lawmakers.
And Merrick Garland didn’t get a hearing because of the rules that Harry Reid and Joe Biden laid down. This is Democrats’ way of trying to justify their attempt to smear Kavanaugh. But Republicans followed the rules and they didn’t smear and lie about Garland. And Democrats are still seeking to make Kavanaugh and the SCOTUS illegitimate, as Holder’s comments show.
This is the same guy who similarly stonewalled the Congress and refused to turn over documents in the Fast and Furious scandal and who was the first AG held in contempt of Congress for doing so.
He’s also considering running for president in 2020.
This isn’t the first time he’s employed violent language about Republicans as he did during a campaign stop in Wisconsin last week. While saying that people should not do anything “unlawful,” Holder said, “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.”
