House Minority Leader and potential Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi raised eyebrows throughout the nation this week; saying she was willing to accept “collateral damage” for those who “do not share our view.”
Pelosi’s fiery rhetoric comes as other leading Democrats -including Eric Holder and Hillary Clinton- call for the public harassment of GOP politicians in the wake of Brett Kavanaugh’s brutal confirmation battle.

“We owe the American people to be there for them. For their financial security, respecting the dignity and worth of every person in our country,” said Pelosi.
“If there’s some collateral damage for some others who do not share our view, well so be it,” she added.
ERIC’S EXCUSE: Holder Downplays ‘KICK’ Comment, Says GOP Stoking ‘Fake Outrage’
Former Attorney General Eric Holder downplayed his recent comments that urged supporters to “kick” Republican voters when they’re down; accusing the GOP of stoking “fake outrage” to distract from the upcoming midterm elections.
Holder posted his excuse on social media days after video of his violent rhetoric went viral on social media; saying “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.”

Holder was speaking with left-wing activists this week when he “updated” Michelle Obama’s signature message, “When they go low, we go high.”
“No,” said Holder. “When they go low, we kick them.”

“Michelle Obama always said ‘When they go low, we go high.’ No, when they go low, we kick them,” he added as the room burst out in applause.
