Susan Collins, Senator from Maine just tweeted that the three branches of government and the media need to be civil. Well, that's the problem, even senators consider, in some way, the media to be a part of the government. That is evident in more ways than one, it is why Republicans often betray their own base, their own constituents in order to pander to the press, to appear to be good, cooperative people at a time when the media is trying to inspire assassinations of opposing politicians.
Civility is something arrived at through mutual respect and a sense of decency, something of which the collectivists are incapable. Their whole program requires the destruction of traditional American values. They couch that in a reach all the way back to the founding, as irrational to the rest of their arguments as that is. When it comes to the Constitution, it is a rag, something we as a people have overcome and put behind us, until they decide to attack Trump with it.
The call for civility is a call for surrender, because it is only the right that understands it. The collectivists work against every sense of civility. It is their tactic to assault civility, to thrust their hedonism in the faces of Christians, to attack the traditional marriage by expanding the definition into meaninglessness.
I see no reason to be civil to those who profit on the deaths of hundreds of thousands of unborn; who clamor for the assassination of the President; who actively promote the annihilation of white people and couch their racism in some sense of reparations for the acts of white ancestors. As sick and evil as I viewed the Obama Administration for its actions in targeting conservative groups with the power of the IRS or the deaths of thousands of Mexicans during Fast and Furious, a planned, designed policy to let them die at the hands of drug dealers directly armed by the feds, I never even considered the answer to these acts would be assassination. Those are the thoughts of thugs and criminals, especially because they have used it.
This is the error of civility. While the right has continued to pursue a civil discourse with what can only be considered a death cult of the left, civil rights have disappeared, freedom of religion, freedom of speech, freedom of association have all but been eradicated. It is a stupid, one-sided game encouraged by those on the right, who have actually aligned themselves with the left and use the concept of civility as bludgeon against their own side. It is an act of fratricide.
If ever there was a political condition in the United States where incivility were the appropriate response, it is now. The collectivists, especially the media, is on open warfare against the very principles of the republic. Their goal, their rally cry is a turn toward communism. It is reflected in their Democratic convention where the hammer and sickle flew in the absence of the stars and stripes. There is no dispute about this, except by the office holders who occasionally have to raise their hands and swear allegiance to a system they are determined to destroy.
Civility is reserved for those who deserve respect, to offer it to the base, crude and rude is an error and a denial of its very value.
