Civility Please

I don’t think that one party is any more uncivil than the other. Unfortunately a lot of these highly reported cases of so called incivility and violent rhetoric (bulls eyes on a map don’t constitute violent rhetoric, just so we are clear) are not so, while other real situations get a widespread pass.

Take a look at this example.

Republican Wisconsin State Rep. Michelle Litjens gave her first national interview to address reports that Democratic Rep. Gordon Hintz told her she was “fucking dead” after she voted for Gov. Scott Walker’s budget plan. Talking with conservative radio host Laura Ingraham, Litjens said that while she didn’t necessarily feel that her life was in danger, but she certainly felt intimidated.

Seriously? The man should be tossed out of the legislative body. The fact that this guy is a democrat is irrelevant. Where is the outrage? Where are the calls for his resignation? Why is Obama not holding another beer summit? Why aren’t the national news channels carrying a live feed of the outside of his house?

I don’t know what would happen if it were a republican making the same comment. I don’t really want to speculate. However I find this sort of thing, a personal comment from person to person, abhorrent. This isn’t a case of colorful political language about “targeting” particular elected officials, this was just a disgusting, unnecessary comment.

    Hiya Nate!

    This is about par for the course for Democrats. Apparently this guy is using the same tactics as the unions – threats of violence. She should press charges.
