What Democrats
Mean By "Civility"

by John Hinderaker - April 17th, 2010 - Powerline

... [Minnesota Democrat Betty] McCollum's contribution to "ending name-calling" consists of saying that her political opponents are would-be mass murderers. Such is the twisted logic that dominates today's Democratic Party.

Having insulted a major element of her political opposition by significantly less than civil discourse, the only thing left is for her to demand that these mass murderers (her words) be civil to her and her fellow Democrats. Why? Because the violence and smearing tactics of Democrats are not available to their enemies. Democrats can say anything, burn Republican headquarters, stomp Republican protestors, shut down meetings lead by Republicans and call Republicans vile names like nazi, fascist, racist, sexist, homophobe, extremist and liar. If Republicans respond, or even just react, we are "inciting violence" and it is demanded that WE stop name-calling.
