“A More Civil Political Discourse” — Who Are We Kidding?

Thursday, January 13, 2011

Within hours of the Jared Loughner murders and shootings in Tucson, Arizona Pima County Sheriff, Clarence Dupnik was on every cable channel he could get his face on, accusing Sarah Palin, Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck, Fox News, Talk Radio, etc. etc. of influencing the shooter. Then Maddow, Mathews, Olbermann, The Huffington Post and the Daily Kos revved up the left with more salacious and damming commentary.

At last night’s Memorial service, turned Pep Rally at the University of Arizona in Tucson, President Obama cautioned that this heated rhetoric should not be part of the discussion. A great suggestion, but this Kumbaya moment was just that, a moment.

Hours before the President spoke Democratic proxies were already attacking the GOP, “Speaker John Boehner will host a cocktail party for the Republican National Committee at the same time that President Barack Obama will be addressing the nation at the memorial service for victims of the Tucson shooting.”

This was intended to show the Republicans as heartless and detached from the Nation’s grief, while the Democrats were attending to the healing. Listening to the hoots and hollers of the crowd at the supposed memorial service, you would of thought there was a basketball game going on instead.

In this rush for peace amongst the two parties, some pundits have suggested the members of the House sit together at Obama’s State of the Union address, instead of the Democrats on one side and the Republicans on the other.

No matter what détente is proposed, they will be at war with each other as soon as they begin debating the repeal of ObamaCare and the Debt Ceiling. There will be attempts at several ridiculous bills such as, enclosing the House Gallery in plexiglass, like a hockey arena or making it illegal to carry a firearm within 1,000 feet of a federal official.

That’s what it means to the bleeding hearts, limit our freedom, trash the constitution all in the name of “civility”. Rush Limbaugh said it best today, “When Obama and the left say, “We need to bring civility back to our discourse,” that’s telling us, “You shut up!” That’s exactly what that means: Censorship.”

Cable News is still getting lots of pundits waxing on and off over Sarah Palin’s use of the words “Blood Libel” and using it as another means to demean her. You’d think she called for beheadings or public hangings. Don’t be fooled this is all part of the Democratic party’s strategy to minimize the Republicans and paint them as evil.

But really, just look at what the Democrats and Barack Obama have foisted on us in two short years — a return to the era of FDR and huge, no enormous government control. Is this what “civil political discourse” means?

I’d rather see us yelling at each other at town halls, on the floor of Congress and on Cable networks before I agree to Obama’s plea of surrender!

Let’s push for more of our typical American uncivil discourse.

    The silly twat had apparently not read the list of favorite books this guy posted. It was a pure CYA maneuver, as this lump of soured pork had had a number of opportunities to get this individual on felony charges in the past. This then would have prevented his passing the NICS and getting the weapon. They never mentioned the fact that a CCW holder, who was in fact armed so therefore had the assurance if the SHTF he could still overcome, was the one who tackled him during the reload.
