The criminal Attorney General and the Republic of helplessness

Why are liberals like Eric Holder so obsessed with making real Americans helpless? Photo: AP images

WASHINGTON.  October 21, 2013 – It is one thing to be stuck on stupid but Attorney General Eric Holder is doubling down on dumb.

Eric Holder likes for dead people to vote. He likes for people to vote early and often.  He thinks the terrorists held at Guantanamo are the real victims in the “War on Terror,” and he believes real Americans should never be able to defend themselves.

In remarks before a law enforcement conference, Holder bragged that the Department of Justice has trained more than 50,000 police officers on how to deal with active shooters. Since Holder’s theory about Islamic terrorism is to deny that Islam is the root of it, Americans should not find much comfort in his boasting. 

Holder said, “authorities don’t always have the luxury of time to get their most highly trained officers on the scene.”

Unfortunately there is a message for real Americans between the lines there. If there is an active shooter, pray. 

Why? Because Eric Holder does not want real Americans to be armed.

While it is helpful to call 911 when there is an active shooter, that isn’t a survival strategy. Neither is charging toward a shooter with a pair of scissors, which was the sage advice the Department of Homeland Security gave out earlier this year.

There is something interesting the active shooter cases of the last few years. All of the shooters chose targets where guns are not allowed or at the least, where there is a slim likelihood there will be an armed citizen.

From Sandy Hook, to the Washington Navy Yard, to the Aurora Colorado movie theater, the common denominator was they were gun free zones. But the criminals did not get the memo. 

Surely it will come as a shock to Eric Holder but criminals don’t obey the law. That is why every year, the Department of Justice prosecutes thousands of people on the charge of being a convicted felon in possession of a firearm.

These people all know they are convicted felons and all know they are not allowed to have guns. Guess what? They get them anyway.

In a ten-hour period on Friday and Saturday in New York, twelve people were shot, five of them killed and none of the killers apprehended. If Holder’s ideas worked, places like New York City, Washington DC and Chicago would be pristine, crime free zones.  

Instead criminals know they can be armed and chances are their victims will not be. 

It isn’t just gun control laws Eric Holder does not like. He does not like so called “stand your ground” laws. That is a misnomer since those laws only define when a person must retreat before using force or deadly force.

What liberals ultimately want is a Republic of Helplessness. What they want is Americans to be dependent on government for everything, including safety. 

If Eric Holder has his way, and there is an active shooter in your area, prayer is about the only weapon you would have.

Real Americans would certainly pray in that situation, then back up their prayers with the Second Amendment.

Judson Phillips is the founder of Tea Party Nation, one of the largest Tea Party Groups in the country and the number one national tea party site on the Internet.

A lawyer by profession, Judson has been involved in politics since his teens. “Ronald Reagan inspired me,” he says.

Judson became involved in the Tea Party movement in February 2009 after hearing Rick Santelli’s rant on CNBC.   “I heard there was going to be a Tea Party in Chicago inspired by Santelli, but didn’t know if anyone was doing a rally in Nashville where I was based.  Finally I emailed Michelle Malkin and asked her if there was a Tea Party in Nashville.  Malkin sent an email back saying, ‘No, why don’t you organize one?’  I did.”

The first Tea Party in Nashville was held late February 2009 which drew a crowd of about 600. Judson then organized the Tax Day Tea Party in Nashville, which drew over 10,000 people into downtown.   It was at this time that Tea Party Nation was formed.  Later that year, Judson decided to bring activists from across the country together, so he organized the first National Tea Party Convention in February 2010, which featured Alaska’s former Governor and Republican Vice Presidential Nominee, Sarah Palin as it’s keynote speaker.

He currently manages the Tea Party Nation website, writes several daily columns and is working on more projects than any one person should.  He is a frequent guest on cable and broadcast news shows, including on Fox, MSNBC, CNN and others.
