Skip to comments.If Conservatives Set Aside Civility To Fight The Left’s Rude Provocation, We Will All Lose

Remember when Laura Ingraham tweeted about how David Hogg was whining after being rejected by a bunch of colleges, and the left, in a fit of outrage, immediately went after her shows advertisers? I seem to recall folks on the right were pretty irritated at those pushy social justice warriors. But now that White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders was asked to leave a restaurant out of the owners moral conviction, some say its time to go low and fight dirty.
SkyMast, whose profile description says shes been resisting the siren call of Marxism for 23 years straight, also tweeted: These suppliers get to choose which side they come down on, sucks that they are forced into this position, but Red Hen pulled the trigger. Wars are messy and often times unfair. Such is life.

i fear nothing when i am in the right.
Wimps like that would have given us Hillary.
To hell with that!
Nonsense. The left wants a war ... let us give them one.
Too long. We have turned the other cheek long enough. Even the Lord had his limits. We have hit ours.
Sounds like a GOPe. Make yourself a rug to be trampled on then when worn turn the other side for more.
Sorry, not sorry. The culture wars call for a response. Surrendering without returning fire is not an appropriate response.
We’re above all that.
It’s not who we are.
If we fight back, the liberals win.
We’re better than that.
During my time in the camps, I had gotten to know the enemies of the human race quite well. They respect the big fist and nothing else. The harder you slug them, the safer youll be.Those that fail to see the left as they truly are will become their victims indeed.
Did I forget any?
There’s so much irony is we could talk about. The left talks about how they are liberal and tolerant and how love trumps hate. Yep they exhibit such hatred towards anyone who is not liberal it’s astounding. Their behavior is the exact opposite of what they preach.
So now the crowd which preaches that love trumps hate and how tolerance they are, believe that we should angrily confront people in restaurants and other public places.
There is irony here but I think the irony is lost on the simple-minded liberals who are pushing and picking these fights.
Just stick with the truth, and righteousness, and all will be well. There is no need to “compromise,” especially according to the warped and narrow standards of Washington DC.
Certainly there is no need to match the Left’s vulgarity.
Yup. It’s falling for Alinsky’s rules—force them to live by their own rules and morals. Except it doesn’t work when dealing with Alinskyites. It’s like Adams said, our Republic was made for a Christian and moral nation. If the other side is neither, civility won’t work.
If the Marxists are not destroyed they will destroy us.
We just wanted to live in peace with our families and friends, and we were willing to co-exist with these morons. But when violent, radical socialist/communists threaten to harm us physically just because of our political or religious beliefs, then the time has come for appropriate level of self defense. That level of that defense should be based on the level of the physical threat. Most of us will do what we have to do to. protect our lives and our families. If that means shooting a whole bunch of these communist turds in self defense, so be it.
Conservatives can fight back—effectively— without going down to the left’s dirty level. Ronald Reagan was good at that. The two Presidents Bush did not fight back at all — except at conservatives. Trump can, and most often does, fight back effectively, but he can also get into juvenile rhetoric.
Fight fire with fire!
Irrelevant. The war is already under way. Either we fight it by appropriate means as circumstances dictate, or we lose.
This author clearly never grew up on the streets of New Jersey and knows nothing about human nature. If you coddle the Left, they get stronger. If you retaliate hard, they wither and withdraw. This is not a cricket match.
