... useful when facts and the rule of law fail you.
I suppose if brainwashing fails, he could order the ATF to sell guns to Mexican criminals in order to create false gun crime statistics. That could "brainwash" the naive into hating guns.
Here's a little something for your head...
It's going to take more than one roll...ReplyDelete
Wow, he's really aged. I amazed at how fluidly he's speaking here, but when I see his Congressional testimony these days its not as smooth and much more bumbling.ReplyDelete
That's the difference between then, when he was speaking on something he believes to be true (no matter how misguided), and now, when he's simply lying to cover up for a crooked administration.Delete
I saw that story today. It never ceases to amaze me that this kind of stuff gets ignore en masse by the media.ReplyDelete
I have read your blog for several years with great interest as I am from Fredericksburg and an avid craft beer drinker. Your thoughts and comments on beer are worth reading, your divergence from beer to gun rights and right wing conservatism, not so much. The Holder video you post is from 1995 when he was the US Attorney for DC. The quote below from Wikipedia describes the environment that Holder addressed:ReplyDelete
"Despite being the headquarters of multiple federal law enforcement agencies such as the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and United States Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), the nationwide crack epidemic of the 1980s and 1990s greatly affected the city and led to massive increases in crime. The number of homicides in Washington peaked in 1991 at 479, and the city eventually became known as the "murder capital" of the United States."
In that video, Holder addressed not the gun rights of law abiding citizens, using guns for hunting, self protection or sport, but how to change the kids views of guns in the drug and gun culture that existed in the murder capital of the world in the mid ‘90s. The kids in that culture NEEDED ‘brainwashing’, and apparently something worked, as reflected by these stats, also from Wikipedia:
Year Violent Crime Change Property Crime Change
1995 2,661.4 - 9,512.1 -
2010 1,330.2 -50% 4,778.9 -49.8%
