Various members of the DNC — including Chairman Tim Kaine, Executive Director Jen O’Malley Dillon and Communications Director Brad Woodhouse — contacted their respective RNC counterparts this week in hopes of getting RNC Chairman Michael Steele to co-sign a document with Kaine that, in part, called for “elected officials of both parties to set an example of the civility we want to see in our citizenry.”The call for civility is a odd piece of disconnect coming from the people who had no problem, and in fact encouraged this:
“We also call on all Americans to respect differences of opinion, to refrain from inappropriate forms of intimidation, to reject violence and vandalism, and to scale back rhetoric that might reasonably be misinterpreted by those prone to such behavior,” read the proposed joint statement...
Or as The Daily Gut points out:
-People calling Bush a NaziBless the RNC, they politely told the DNC to take their "civility statement" and put it where the sun don't shine.
-Students and non students rioting on college campuses
-Animal rights freaks dousing rich folks with paint
-Actors wishing average folks would get rectal cancer
-Bureaucrats labeling military vets as potential violent right wing extremists
-Radical environmentalists advocating violence against loggers
-Pranksters throwing pies at conservative commentators
Frankly, I'm in no mood to be lectured on civility by people who have called me a racist and a terrorist. In fact, I would tell the Democrats that if they wish me to treat them respectfully they could start by earning my respect. The hate and name calling originated on the left. The DNC needs to remove the log from its own eye.
In the meantime, they can kiss my lily white over-ample ass.
