While addressing liberal activists in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, former Attorney General Eric Holder engaged in violent rhetoric, and appeared to either threaten or challenge Republicans to engage in a knife fight, the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel and others reported.
“We have to be ready to, you know, not do anything inappropriate, not do anything improper, certainly 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.”
According to the Journal Sentinel:
Former U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder came to Milwaukee Thursday to implore liberal activists to turn out the vote for Supreme Court candidate Rebecca Dallet and fight election maps that favor Republicans.
Holder, who served in President Barack Obama’s administration, said the Milwaukee County judge is “the clear choice” in the race and lauded her for being “tough, fair and compassionate.”
Meanwhile, Republicans stepped up their attacks against Dallet, questioning her ability to hear certain types of cases and criticizing her for a San Francisco fundraiser.
It’s worth noting that in 2008, Holder’s boss, Barack Hussein Obama, engaged in similar violent rhetoric during a campaign stop in Philadelphia: “If they bring a knife to the fight, we bring a gun. Because from what I understand, folks in Philly like a good brawl. I’ve seen Eagles fans.”
Holder’s comment didn’t sit too well with many:
Holder: “You want to rumble, let’s rumble. You want to have a knife fight, we’re gonna do it.” This racist POS is trying to start a war! If he wants a war, then brings a knife, what do we bring? https://t.co/DjStEBR6X3

Could he possibly get any more low-class than this? Really? He's wearing a suit and tie, and he wants to have a knife fight in the street? Where did he grow up at?

One person wondered:
We’re guessing not very long…
Another person said Holder should be careful:
Holder doesn’t want a knife fight with me. When all is said and done at the end of the day, I’m a classically trained Chef that can butcher ANY animal and leave little to no waste. Be careful what you wish for Holder!

We couldn’t help but wonder if Holder would want to have a knife fight with these individuals, since he’s apparently itching to get violent with someone:

Holder, by the way, served as Attorney General from 2009 to 2015 and had the distinction of being — as far as we can tell — the first cabinet member held in contempt of Congress.
