Civility

Remember Tolerance and Diversity? Remember Civility and poisonous Partisanship?

The Democrats don’t.

But the Fear, bullying and Intimidation is all they know. So The Narrative is The Narrative.

So what if ObamaCare was a fucking disaster. So what if the RINOs want to keep it basically. It’s not THEIR plan.

CIVILITY: Democrat Leaders Now Calling Republicans “Murderers”

A Bernie supporter and lifelong leftist who was known to hate Republicans opened fire on congressional Republicans with the intentions of slaughtering as many as possible. Representative Steve Scalise is still in the hospital recovering from his gunshot wound.

You would think that responsible adults who are professional and mentally sane would try to express to their sheeple followers how important it is to have adult discussions rather than act out violently. Have Democrats done that? No, in fact they have done just the opposite. It’s as if they are egging on their followers to commit more acts of violence. It’s disgusting. From Ricochet:

 

Obviously, rhetoric didn’t pull the trigger on that Alexandria baseball practice last week, and we can’t hold liberal politicians and celebrities directly accountable for the actions of a violent, unbalanced man. Free speech in politics often tends toward the hyperbolic yet it is, and should remain, fully protected under the First Amendment. But after the shooting, many Democrats paused their efforts to undermine that right and called instead for civility on a voluntary basis.

To be honest, I’m surprised it (sort of) lasted a week.

The problem with these two nimrods is they represent the extreme left (even though they are both 1%ers that they often rail against) and their followers are indeed of the mentally unstable type. Twice over the past several weeks, Bernie supporters have tried to murder people, TWICE.

What the hell is wrong with these supposed leaders that they want to continue with their violent rhetoric? Not only are they LYING but they are INCITING others by claiming people could actually be killed or die if Republicans try to fix the disgusting mess that is Obamacare.

It’s repulsive to see how little Sanders and Warren and many other Democrats feel about regular Americans. It’s disgusting that these people continue to behave in ways that show how much vitriol, hatred and violent rhetoric they are about rather than actual ideas. They are out of ideas.

Because it’s the same OLD ideas. Fear, Fear, Fear, and More Fear…

Intimidation.

Bullying.

Hyper Hyperbole.

Partisan Rhetoric so poisonous it would kill Medusa.

Nothing has changed. Same leopards. Same spots.

Violence was a moral boundary King refused any of his people to breach. He warned in 1958, “Hate begets hate; violence begets violence; toughness begets a greater toughness. We must meet the forces of hate with the power of love.”

But the modern Liberal Progressive Democrats has no boundaries they would not cross to get what THEY want. We’ve seen it before, we’re seeing it again.

The focus should not be  on winning or losing arguments on tough issues, and more on learning courageous dialogue skills that could be used to encourage understanding, foster critical thinking, and explore workable solutions that promote the common good.

The following civility conversation ground rules proved to be most helpful no matter what issue was discussed:

Don’t assume bad intent. Show empathy and tolerance for differences. Good people disagree. Well-intentioned patriots exist on both sides of any divide.

Stay Calm. When angry count to ten…very angry to a hundred. It’s better to end a conversation and take time to cool down than to let escalating anger destroy a valued relationship.

Seek first to understand, then to be understood. Ask good questions and then really listen. Say “Tell me more about…” and “Let me see if I understand…”

Make your argument without assuming you’re right or that the other should know why. Affirm points of agreement and common ground early while working to bring clarity to your position.

 

Do your homework and build depth to your convictions and your understanding of opposing views. (Townhall)

But the modern Liberal is intellectually incapable of this due an overabundance of brain-eating Narcissism. So the Fear & Smear is back with a vitriolic vengeance on this issue, because we all know it never left. It’s the perpetual guest pest that won’t leave.
