One more observation regarding this civility thing that seems to be the Democrats latest attempt at painting ordinary people as sinister Timothy McVeigh types, intent on violently bringing down our representative form of government simply by lawfully and peacefully exercising their 1st amendment right to voice their opinions.
One of the first rules of a chair throwing bar room brawl, which our culture wars have essentially become, is that once the chairs start flying, it is too late to stand on a table and plead for calm and reasoned debate. Particularly if the party calling for this cease of hostilities started the fight and has repeatedly sucker punched you after previous truces. To watch the Dems wring their collective hands (pun intended) over this supposed danger is to stand slack jawed in wonder that they think anyone is going to buy this load of horse shit.
I try to be civil here in my own little corner of the interwebs when talking politics, particularly to any family members that wonder by to comment, so please understand that if you should get hit with a stray barstool or bottle, it’s nothing personal. Just the nature of a brawl. When it is all over after the November elections, I’ll even buy you a drink to celebrate our victory! Until then, keep your head on a swivel and I’ll try to pull my punches if I think you are a friend.
