  • After Trump's 'Racist' Tweets, Dems Demand 'Civility,' But When Have They Practiced It?

    President Donald Trump, in a series of tweets, offered four freshman Democratic congresswomen a suggestion. Given their complaints about America and about Israel, tweeted Trump, the four, aka "the Squad" should "go back and help fix the totally broken and crime infested places from which they came." Of the four, only Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., is foreign-born. How dare Trump, critics cried, tell these American-born citizens, all of whom are "people of color," to go back to where they came from! Racism! Never mind that in 2015, one of the four, then-citizen and now Rep. Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich., angrily tweeted...

    Byron York takes a dispassionate look at today’s political/cultural landscape, which is beginning to resemble the one that preceded the Civil War: The toxicity of the resistance to President Trump has risen in recent days, with the nation’s most respected newspapers publishing rationalizations for denying Trump supporters public accommodation and for doxxing career federal employees, while a journalist found himself under physical attack from the so-called anti-fascist group Antifa, which has stepped up its violent activities since Trump’s election. Advocacy of incivility and violence isn’t coming only from the zany far left. It finds a home in formerly respectable news...

    Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) on Sunday again called on former Vice President Joe Biden to apologize for touting his relationships with segregationists, saying Biden’s former colleagues participated in a “disgusting system.” “It is one thing to work with people you have fundamental disagreements with, it’s another to kind of extol those relationships,” Sanders said on CBS’ “Face the Nation” Sunday. “You cannot be extolling people who really were part of a disgusting system.” “I think Joe owes the country an apology on that,” Sanders said, adding “Do I think Joe Biden is a racist? Absolutely not.” Biden sparked controversy last...
  • John Oliver On Jay Leno’s Call For Civility On Late-Night Shows: Remember Monica Lewinsky?

    Last week former late night talk show host Jay Leno called for “a bit more civility” in public discourse and now he must be punished. A current late night talk show host, John Oliver, pounced. He is eager to remind his viewers about how late-night show hosts treated Monica Lewinsky back in the day. Last week, Leno stopped by NBC’s Today show and said he did not miss hosting a late-night show because “everything now is, if people don’t like your politics… everyone has to know your politics…But when people see you are one-sided, it just makes it tough.”“I’d...

    An Ivy League professor bashed "the smiling face of Whiteness" in response to the recent controversy involving an interaction between a Native American man and a Catholic teenage supporter of President Donald Trump. “Whiteness endlessly forgives its own transgressions,” University of Pennsylvania associate professor Ebony Elizabeth Thomaswrote on Sunday about the confrontation between Covington Catholic High School student Nick Sandmann and Native American Nathan Phillips. “It rarely, if ever, gives those of us it harms and maims and kills time to process our motions [sic].” According to Thomas, the “smiling face of Whiteness” is one that “always hides a knife...

    It’s no big deal that her colleague, Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.) called President Donald Trump a “mother-******,” House Speaker Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) told an MSNBC town hall on Friday. Thursday, on her first day on the job, Rep. Tlaib declared, “We’re gonna go in and impeach the mother******!” Asked to comment on the vulgar remark, Pelosi invoked “freedom of speech” — and said people shouldn’t make a big deal of it:“That’s freedom of speech on an individual member. As I said, generationally, that would not be language that I would use. But, nonetheless, I don’t think we should make...

    The Federalist ^ | 01 NOV 2018 | Rachel Stoltzfoos
    Hillary Clinton is right. We cannot be civil with a political party that wants to destroy what America stands for. She’s right that we must fight against politicians and activists who degrade the rule of law, seek to delegitimize our elections, spread corruption, attack truth and reason, and try to undermine our national unity. A defiant, defensive, and dystopian political party must be met with determined aggression, not niceties. But she’s living in upside-down world if she believes that’s the Republican Party. Two years into Donald Trump’s presidency, there is no question the Democratic Party is on the side of...

    MSNBC contributor Steve Schmidt says conservative radio hosts like Rush Limbaugh and Mark Levin have “blood on their hands” for mass shootings and other crimes perpetrated by “crazy people.” The Republican strategist told “All In” host Chris Hayes this week that a recent mail bomb threat to prominent Democrats, along with the Tree of Life synagogue massacre that claimed 11 lives, were partially incited by well-known conservative men and ideologically aligned organizations. “Mark Levin, and Rush Limbaugh, and Breitbart, and NewsBusters, and Judicial Watch, and all the rest of them, have blood on their hands for the incitements that they...

    One time, I met a D.C. traffic-directing cop in the line at the mall and I remarked how dangerous her job was. “I mean, people in D.C. drive so crazy,” I said. “You could get killed.” “Oh no,” she said, “don’t feel sorry for me. Feel sorry for the people in parking enforcement. They get screamed at, spat on, cursed out – you name it. It’s horrible.” I have to admit that this was the first time I’d ever had any sympathy for parking enforcement cops (also known as “meter maids”). I’ve always seen them as predators, scrounging around, looking...

    President Trump said one day after explosive devices were sent to prominent Democrats and CNN that "a big part" of the anger in society today is caused by "purposely false and inaccurate reporting" from mainstream media. He said in an early morning tweet on Thursday that "fake news" has gotten "so bad and hateful that it is beyond description." "Mainstream Media must clean up its act, FAST!" he wrote. Trump's also said at a campaign rally late Wednesday that the news media should set a "civil" tone. CNN anchor John Berman responded to Trump after reading his tweet on "New...

    The University of Mississippi has condemned a tweet by a faculty member that called on activists to abandon civility and harass Republican senators in public. “Don’t just interrupt a Senator’s meal, y’all,” James Thomas, an assistant professor of sociology, tweeted from his @Insurgent_Prof account on Oct. 6, the day Justice Brett Kavanaugh was sworn into the Supreme Court. “Put your whole damn fingers in their salads,” he wrote. “Take their apps and distribute them to the other diners. Bring boxes and take their food home with you on the way out. They don’t deserve your civility.”

    Gov. Cuomo did his best Uncle Sam impression on Sunday, preaching his love for the “red, white, and blue,” and sounding off against Washington partisanship — while still stumping for a Democrat-controlled Congress “that can stop this president.” “To govern, to live together, it can’t be red or blue. It can’t be conservative or liberal. You have to bring everyone together,” said Cuomo in an appearance on John Catsimatidis’s AM 970 radio show. “I think, frankly, that’s the point the president misses time and time again. He plays to the polarization.”

    Andrew Cuomo has some nerve.The New York governor, who two years ago intoned that New Yorkers with pro-life and conservative values weren't "welcome" in the state, is suddenly acting as if he's their most ardent advocate.  At Thursday night's Fox Business debate, GOP presidential candidate Ted Cruz (R-TX) defined New York values as "socially liberal, pro-abortion, pro-gay marriage,  and focus around money and the media." Cuomo insisted Cruz should "apologize" for his comments. "I'm always open to give him an education on what New York values are all about," Cuomo said on NY1. "And if he had any class, he would apologize to the people of New...

    New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo believes that pro-life activists, along with anti-gay activists and supporters of the Second Amendment, are not welcome in his state. During a radio interview on Friday, Cuomo pointed out that Republicans were in the midst of a schism, where conservatives worked against moderate Republicans. "Their problem is not me and the Democrats; their problem is themselves," he said. "Who are they? Are they these extreme conservatives who are right-to-life, pro-assault-weapon, anti-gay? Is that who they are? Because if that's who they are and they're the extreme conservatives, they have no place in the state of...

    New York Governor Andrew Cuomo made news last week when during a radio interview he said “extreme conservatives” have “no place” in the Empire State. Who are these people? Among others, he said, those who are “right to life” or “anti-gay.”Later he tried to walk back this naked and nasty bit of intolerance, reassuring us that those who are “anti-choice” (one presumes he got a tongue-lashing from NARAL for saying “right to life” the first time) could stay in New York after all. But that bell, as the saying goes, can’t be un-rung.Catholics, of course, are “right to life”...

    New York governor Andrew Cuomo came under fire for criticizing pro-life and pro-Second Amendment citizens of his state -- and saying "that is not who New Yorkers are." Their problem is not me and democrats, their problem is themselves. Who are they? Are they these extreme conservatives, who are right to life, pro assault weapon, anti-gay, is that who they are? Because if that is who they are, and if they are the extreme conservatives, they have no place in the state of New York. Because that is not who New Yorkers are.

    Governor Andrew Cuomo of New York has already proven himself to be one of the most pro-abortion politicians in the country. He’s repeatedly pushed a bill that would make the state that has some of the highest abortion rates in the nation further down the road of unlimited abortions.Now, Cuomo has said that pro-life people have no business living in the state. If the governor has any interest in pursuing national office with a potential Democratic presidential campaign, he’s definitely lost the majority of the country that appreciates the right to life of unborn babies.But maybe Cuomo is doing the...

    Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's incendiary suggestion this week that liberals "cannot be civil" with Republicans any longer is unproductive and simply "ridiculous," a top Democratic senator said Wednesday. The stark repudiation of Clinton's comments by Sen. Heidi Heitkamp, D-N.D., a vulnerable red-state Democrat seeking re-election this year, comes as top Republicans have lined up in recent days to criticize Democrats' fiery rhetoric amid the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court.

    Think of Michelle Obama turning over a new leaf as a failing Obama simply now ‘Sending out the Mooch’ If Michelle Obama is, as some media describe it, “spanking” her husband’s former Attorney General Eric Holder and his embittered protégé Hillary Clinton for claiming it’s high time to throw civility out the window, then she must be doing it with a feather. There is no doubt about where Holder and Clinton are coming from. It was on Sunday at a campaign event in Georgia when Holder said that Democrats need a new slogan, suggesting: “When they go low, we kick...
