by Chad D. Baus has unearthed video from a 1995 CSPAN2 broadcast which shows Eric Holder, then a U.S. attorney under President Clinton and now President Obama’s Attorney General, calling for a program in America’s schools and U.S. media that would “brainwash” people against guns.

Holder’s Department of Justice is responsible for the ATF “Fast & Furious” gun-running scandal, which has led to the deaths of hundreds of Mexicans and at least one American border patrol agent, and the video casts more light on the program, which internal emails have proved was designed to convince American voters to support more gun control.

In the video, Holder can be heard saying that those who support gun control need to “change the way people in which people think about guns” and “get at the minds of young people” through an “informational campaign” via television, radio, newspaper ads, and echoed by entertainers, athletes and community leaders such as Jesse Jackson and Mayor Barry “who have credibility with young people” (no, really, he said that).

Holder also can be heard saying that he “asked the school board to make a part of every day some kind of anti-violence, anti-gun message. Every day, every school, at every level.”

Holder revealed his ultimate goal at the end of the video segment, when he stated that “We have to be repetitive about this.”

“We need to do this every day of the week, and just really brainwash people into thinking about guns in a vastly different way.”
