Author and The Hill columnist Kristin Tate said Thursday that former Attorney General Eric Holder's apparent call for incivility against Republicans is "the new norm on the left."

"Seething hatred is the new norm," Tate said on "Fox & Friends First."

Tate said Holder's comments are not an outlier but a "symptom of a much wider illness of liberal intolerance."

Tate said her brother's car was recently vandalized because it had a Donald Trump bumper sticker.

"The natural extension of this kind of rhetoric [from the left] is real violence," she said.
