When a Liberal Progressive media outlet laments the lack of Civility in politics and public discourse you know you are about to experience a group hug where liberals insist on having it both ways:
“I think the demand for civility can be used as a tool of oppression when it only goes in one direction – when you demand civility from the ruled, but you don’t demand civility from the rulers,” Goldberg said.
An unapologetic liberal, Goldberg thinks it’s just fine that presidential spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders was not welcomed at the Red Hen restaurant, and that Congresswoman Maxine Waters, a California Democrat, has called for confrontation.
“This shows to me this kind of surreal loop of disinformation that we’re in,” Goldberg said. “Trump then says ‘Maxine Waters has basically told people to attack members of my administration, she should be careful of what she wishes for.’ If there is any threat of violence there, it’s clearly coming from Donald Trump, and it wouldn’t be the only time that Donald Trump has kind of outright threatened protesters.”
“I love the old days. You know what they used to do to guys like that when they were in a place like this? They’d be carried out on a stretcher, folks!”
It’s hilarious to watch a liberal suggest that there is nothing wrong with people treating each other like shit… especially where they disagree politically… but it’s okay to cast aside civility in the face of a president with whom you disagree.
Am I the only one that remembers how many times liberals jammed down our throats that Obama was our president whether we like it or not and that we had to show him respect?
No matter how hard they try, Liberals are never going to have it both ways. When they are civil to their opponents their opponents will be civil to them.[Images via RCG CBS]
