Former Attorney General Eric Holder has announced the new Democrat strategy for dealing with Republicans.
During a speaking event, Holder said members of his party would no longer be abiding by former First Lady Michelle Obama’s mantra of “When they go low, we go high.”
Instead, Holder said, “When Republicans go low, we kick them.”
The crowd loved it. They cheered and started chanting, “fight! fight! fight!”
“We’re proud as hell to be Democrats,” Holder added. “We’re willing to fight for the ideals of the Democratic party. We’re proud of our history. We’re proud of our present and we’re proud of the future that we can create for this country.”
Watch it for yourself:
President Trump quickly criticized the new mantra and called it “dangerous” and “disgusting.”
“He better be careful what he’s wishing for,” Trump told Fox News during a phone interview on Thursday morning. “That’s a disgusting statement for him to make.”
The call to violence has become all too common of a call from Democrat leaders and, as TownHall reports, GOP Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel condemned it as well.
In a tweet, McDaniel said, “Eric Holder wants the mob even angrier” and she referenced others on the Left who have called for violence.

Republican Congressman Dave Brat also referenced the line and said it is contributing to a rise of violence.
“The Democratic Party is becoming increasingly more violent, primarily due to the examples set by their leaders,” Brat said.

Here’s more from Holder’s statements, per the Conservative Review:
“Our nation is at risk. Our democracy is at risk,” Holder to a room of Democratic activists. Holder is openly considering launching a bid for the 2020 Democratic nomination to challenge President Trump. Encouraging his audience to become more involved politically, Holder attacked the Trump administration and the Republican Party in what is likely to become his 2020 campaign message.
“We have to send a message about what this nation is really all about,” Holder said. “We are a lot more tolerant than Trump would have us believe. We’re a lot more accepting than Trump would have people believe. We’re a better nation than Trump would have people think of us as a country. And frankly, we’re better than the Republicans would have us be portrayed.”
“Republicans have done all they possibly can to try to break up our democracy, keep people away from the polls with these voter ID laws,” he continued. He accused Republicans of using racial and partisan gerrymandering to maintain power and lamented that Democrats are softer than 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 said.
