Eric Himpton Holder Jr., who armed murderous Mexican drug cartels in a diabolical scheme named ‘Fast and Furious’ during the Obama years- is responsible for schools not being allowed to disciple violent students- and also for building criminal enterprises in both the United States and in Mexico- has a solution for the latest school shootings- remove guns from law-abiding American citizens.
it is almost like a broken record to listen to these radical leftist grifters- whose one solution to everything is to punish law-abiding Americans.
Breitbart News recently slammed Holder for his recent comments but first highlighted his ongoing scheme to usurp the power of duly elected state reps:
Since leaving the Obama administration in 2015, former Attorney General Eric Holder has gone on to make a living off of heading the so-called National Democratic Redistricting Committee, an organization with the stated purpose of ending partisan gerrymandering.
Holder has filed lawsuits throughout the country tying up statehouse redistricting efforts claiming particular segments of the electorate had been disenfranchised by alleged gerrymandering.g.
According to Holder, gerrymandering also plays a role in gun violence in America.
The left just can not accept that most Americans do not agree with their utopian power grabs for centralizing a federal authority.
During an appearance on MSNBC’s “The 11th Hour” on Wednesday, Holder told host Stephanie Ruhle that “structural problems” in our representative government were enabling the “gun lobby.”
“[W]e also have to do the structural things,” he said. “You know, gerrymandering is something that is a problem here, where people can side with the gun lobby, with the special interests against the will of their constituents and not suffer any electoral consequence because they are in these safe seats. So, it’s a combination of, I think, a lack of will, structural problems, and we have to get to a better place.”
Breitbart writer Jeff Poor slammed Holder:
Holder argued if there were no gerrymandered lines, more Democrats could get elected and pass laws with background check requirements.
“The lines were drawn — gerrymandered lines were drawn in such a way that it is almost impossible for the other party to win,” Holder said. “And therefore, if you are in a safe Republican seat, the only thing that you are concerned about is a primary as opposed to a general election. And the way you forestall a primary challenger is to go further and further to the right and take more extreme positions so that you can’t get outflanked from your right side.”
“If you’re in that safe Republican seat and the Democratic challenger comes on and says, you know, I want to fight for gun safety, you’re — you’re safe,” he continued. “And so, you can just cater to your base, cater to that extreme part of your base, and not have to deal with or do that with your constituents by significantly large numbers want to have happened. I mean, the polls are like 80, 90% of the people in this country saying that we should have background checks before anybody has the ability to buy a weapon. You don’t see that in law.”
Holder attacked the Texas legislature and said if not for its “gerrymandered power,” there might be those in charge that could “stop these kinds of mass shootings from occurring.

Of course Holder is selling a book that positions himself as an expert-CNBC reported:
Former Attorney General Eric Holder says Americans’ voting rights are in serious danger, and that partisan gerrymandering – especially as practiced by Republicans redrawing electoral maps to splinter Democratic bases of support – is part of the reason that our democracy is “in need of serious renovation.”
Holder (who is currently chairman of the National Democratic Redistricting Committee, which challenges electoral maps) says he is committed to ending partisan gerrymandering. Appearing on “CBS Mornings” on Monday, Holder said gerrymandering and laws aimed at suppressing voter turnout are attempts to keep “the will of the American people from being expressed in the ballot box.”
“CBS Mornings” co-host Tony Dokoupil asked, “Both parties do it, right? So, how do you get them to disarm and come to the table and agree on your solution, which would be these sort of independent commissions?”
“We can’t fall into some notion of equivalency here, because in a lot of ways that’s false,” Holder said. “What Princeton University said, they looked at the gerrymandering that the Republicans did in the last cycle, in 2012, and said it was the worst gerrymandering of the last half-century. There have been maps that Democrats have drawn in this cycle that I don’t agree with, New York and Maryland among them. But those pale in comparison to what Republicans have done in Texas, Georgia, potentially in Florida. You’re comparing apples and oranges in a lot of ways.
“I’m committed to fighting for fairness,” he said, “because I’m also confident that if the process is fair, the Democrats, progressives will do just fine. We don’t have to cheat; Republicans have to cheat in order to win.”
Is anyone else asking when Holder had a job that was not supported by the US Taxpayer for making political theater for leftists?
