In the age of Obama, endless cruelty was met by the motto, “they go low, we go high,” which was all fine and dandy coming from First Lady Michelle because, had she shown any anger about the things that were being said about her children and husband, she would have quickly been labeled an angry black woman. She herself was called a monkey and a transvestite almost daily, and yet always stood firm that we (liberals) don’t stoop to the levels of our aggressors.
That time is dead, and many Democrats are well aware of it. Michelle Obama may not have been able to say what she was really thinking, but we can, and now the face of the Democratic Party is finally changing. No longer will we sit passively by while we are attacked by conservatives. Even Barack Obama’s Attorney General agrees.
Eric Holder Was recently campaigning for Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams (D) when he said this about Michelle Obama’s memorable slogan:
“Michelle (Obama) always says, ‘When they go low, we go high.’ No. When they go low, we kick them. That’s what this new Democratic Party is about.”
Holder may be eyeing a bid for the Oval Office in 2020, leading to this obvious distancing of himself from the Obama Administration. Holder apparently does not want to be associated with the passive behavior of President Obama.
He says that Republican ruthlessness is the reason:
“They’ve tried to racial gerrymander, they’ve tried to partisan gerrymander. … They want to keep themselves in power. They want to cater to the special interests. We’re in this to win, and the reality is if we don’t win, people who are less committed, less idealistic, less imbued with the values that make this nation really great will run this country.”
It’s about damn time liberals find their backbones and stand up for what is right, like we used to. We used to risk our lives in protest of atrocities, and now, we just try to ignore them as much as possible. That won’t end anything. It’s time to fight, and fight until we win.
