Top 10 Examples of Liberal Incivility

With President Obama’s approval ratings in free fall and 2012 election prospects looking bleak for Democrats, liberals are resorting to vicious attacks, name-calling and hyperbole to paint Republicans in a bad light.  Here are the Top 10 Examples of Liberal Incivility:

1.  Obama’s army:  Teamsters President Jimmy Hoffa unleashed this tirade on Labor Day in Detroit as he rallied the union audience before President Obama addressed the crowd:  “President Obama, this is your army.  We are ready to march.  Everybody here’s got to vote.  Let’s take these sons of bitches out.”

2.  Hanging on a tree:  Rep. Andre Carson (D.-Ind.) suggested that some conservative congressmen want to return to the days of lynching.  At a Congressional Black Caucus event Miami in August, Carson delivered this gem of civility:  “This is the effort that we are seeing of Jim Crow.  Some of these folks in Congress right now would love to see us as second-class citizens.  Some of them in Congress right now with this Tea Party movement would love to see you and me … hanging on a tree.”

3.  Biden’s barbarians:  Vice President Joe Biden used an AFL-CIO rally in Cincinnati on Labor Day to mock the political opposition in vile terms.  Biden told the union members:  “You are the only folks keeping barbarians from the gates.”

4.  Save the children:  House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, at a San Francisco fund-raiser, said Republicans were sacrificing their children in their attempt to destroy government:  “The Republicans right now are using the idea of deficit reduction as an excuse, they’re hijacking an idea that has some resonance—we all want to reduce the deficit—in order to not reduce the deficit but to destroy the public space, destroy government.  … You wonder, do their children breathe air?  Do they drink water?”

5.  Straight to hell:  California Rep. Maxine Waters (D.-South Central) revved up her constituents last month, blasting the Tea Party and talking tough.  Waters told the crowd:  “I am not afraid of anybody.  This is a tough game.  You can’t be intimidated.  You can’t be frightened.  And as far as I’m concerned, the Tea Party can go straight to hell.”

6.  Global-warming racism: Al Gore, high priest of the global-warming cult, likened those who question his doctrine to racists:  “There came a time when friends or people you work with … when racist comments would come up in the conversation and in years past they were just natural.  Then there came a time when people would say, ‘Hey, man, why do you talk that way?  I mean that is wrong.  I don’t go for that, so don’t talk that way around me.  I just don’t believe that.’  That happened in millions of conversations and slowly the conversation was won.  We have to win the conversation on climate.”

7.  Stockholm syndrome:  Political genius and hack comedienne Janeane Garofalo came up with a doozy of a conspiracy theory, positing that the Koch brothers or Karl Rove or Grover Norquist were paying Herman Cain to run for President in order to deflect charges of racism against Republicans.  Taking off her tinfoil hat to appear on Al Gore’s Current TV, Garofalo said:  “Herman Cain, I feel like, is being paid by somebody to be involved and to run for President so that you go, ‘Oh, they can’t be racist’  … There may be a touch of Stockholm syndrome, because anytime I see a person of color or a female in the Republican Party or the conservative movement or the Tea Party, I wonder how they could be trying to curry favor with the oppressors.”

8.  To the streets:  Keith Olbermann, the former MSNBC host now working for Al Gore’s Current TV, was infuriated by the debt-ceiling deal and called on his viewers to share his anger (luckily for America he has few viewers):  Those responsible for the debt-ceiling deal, Olbermann said, “will crush us, because those who created it are organized and unified and hell-bent.  And the only response is to be organized and unified and hell-bent in return.”  Opponents of the deal “must find again the energy and the purpose of the 1960s and early 1970s, and we must protest this deal and all the goddamn deals to come, in the streets.”

9.  Obama’s silence:  After his call for civility following the shooting of Arizona Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, President Obama’s failure to condemn Hoffa’s remark gives tacit approval for more shameful attacks.  After sharing the same podium with Hoffa at the Labor Day rally where the labor leader declared war, the President has refused to condemn the remarks, with a presidential spokesman saying the President isn’t going to “serve as the speech police of the Democratic Party.”

10.  Kill GOP zombies:  As Democratic bile worsens, abated by President Obama’s blinders, it was only time before the culture became infected with violent anti-conservative imagery.  The video-game company StarvingEyes has released a new game called “Tea Party Zombies Must Die,” where impressionable young minds can score points by killing zombies in the likeness of Sarah Palin, Michele Bachmann, Newt Gingrich and Fox News hosts.
