The Left’s New Civil-sorship

Let’s be civil, OK? I mean, let’s tone it down out there. You people need to rise to a better, more civil discourse. I know this because the entire left wing in America today is telling us this (even as Democrat Steve Cohen is calling anyone that opposes him a Nazi).

We need to get rid of all the violent rhetoric, they say. We need to stop saying words like “target” or using a crosshair symbol on election maps. Maybe we should stop saying that politicians have a “war room,” too? And saying that we want to “beat” the opposition is right out.

So, yeah. Let’s get rid of all this violence shall we?

On second thought if you are signing onto this new line of civility being used as a means of censorship, well you are an idiot. A morn. A retard, even.

That’s right, you heard me. You are a dipwad if you agree with this nonsense.

Let’s get a few things straight, shall we?

  • The word “target” is not a violent word. It denotes “a goal to be achieved.”
  • “Eliminate” does NOT only mean to kill someone. It also means to remove — in the case of politics, remove from office.
  • “Fired” does not only mean shooting a gun.
  • “Get rid of” does not just mean to kill.
  • Saying someone’s career is “dead” is not “violent rhetoric.”
  • “Killing an opponent” does not have to mean physically killing someone.
  • “Destroying” an opponent is also not a threat of “violence.”

Let’s stop assuming every listener is too stupid to tell the difference between saying we want to “target” someone in a political campaign and saying that we want to actually target them for assassination. Let us stop eviscerating our own language and hampering our ability to express ourselves.

The fact is, all the left is trying to do is make opponents afraid to say anything at all. The left is using its call for civility as censorship. It is Civil-sorship. Further, we all know that no left-winger will ever allow themselves to be cowed by calls for “civility.” They only intend to hold other to account for their language but they, themselves, are exempt from such stringent requirements.

And then there’s that whole silly First Amendment thing. Don’t let the Democrats stifle free political speech. Tell ’em to go suck an egg.

So, don’t fall for it, America. The leftists are not trying to make our political discourse more civil. They are liars. All they are trying to do is scare their opponents into shutting up.
