Or did this group also donate money to Obama's campaign?
Well, this shouldn't surprise anyone. We all know the drill by now. Whenever any Republican or conservative says something that offends or could be twisted to be considered marginally threatening the civility police descend to condemn not only that individual but the entire movement of like minded persons.
And we are not surprised when Obama and his fellow hand wringers don't seem the least bit bothered when their friends and allies say or do far worse. They'll still take the campaign donation no matter how sleazy the person who donates it.
But just keep in mind Obama's words regarding the Rush/Sandra Fluke flap: “All decent folks can agree, that the remarks that were made don’t have any place in the public discourse." What do you bet we hear nothing but silence from Obama over this?
KILL RUSH LIMBAUGH, the song now playing on Facebook and You Tube. Imagine the hell that would erupt on every newscast and in every newspaper if any Republican said anything remotely like that about a person on the left.
And if some deranged person would take the song's message to heart and act on it we can bet that many of these same civility police would stand up and publicly cheer.
I'll keep saying this, not that it will make the slightest difference to those on the left, but there will be no improvement in the quality of our public discourse as long as those on the left continue to be exempted from the same standards of civility and conduct that they daily demand from those on the right.
But I suppose the broader problem is that those on the left really don't care about civility except as a punching bag with which to beat up the right. When it comes down to it, the ONLY principle the left has is the acquisition and wielding of political power. There is no other end for them but that!
