Eric Holder walks back his call for violence, tells us to "stop the fake outrage"

Eric Holder is under fire for calling his people to start "kicking" Republicans. Holder just tweeted that he's not advocating violence.

Ok, stop the fake outrage. I’m obviously not advocating violence. (In fact, when I was AG violent crime in the US was historically low.) I’m saying Republicans are undermining our democracy and Democrats need to be tough, proud and stand up for the values we believe in - the end.

Earlier this week, the former Attorney General flatly rejected civility. Saying he disagrees with Michelle Obama.

"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 told a crowd of campaign volunteers and candidates. "Michelle always says -- I love her; she and my wife are like, really tight, which always scares me and Barack -- but Michelle always says, 'When they go low, we go high.' No. When they go low, we kick 'em."
