Skip to comments.Democrats Want a 'Return to Civility'; When Did They Practice It?
Posted on 01/28/2021 6:02:11 AM PST by Kaslin
A 2020 Joe Biden campaign ad described the pending election as an "opportunity to leave the dark, angry politics of the past behind us." After Biden's election, he, Democrats and media urge a "return to civility." But when did the Democrats practice the very civility to which they seek to return?
Let's go to the videotape:
When Barry Goldwater accepted the 1964 Republican nomination, California's Democratic Gov. Pat Brown said, "The stench of fascism is in the air."
Former Rep. William Clay Sr., D-Mo., said President Ronald Reagan was "trying to replace the Bill of Rights with fascist precepts lifted verbatim from 'Mein Kampf.'"
Coretta Scott King, in 1980, said, "I am scared that if Ronald Reagan gets into office, we are going to see more of the Ku Klux Klan and a resurgence of the Nazi Party."
After Republicans took control of the House in the mid-'90s, Rep. John Dingell, D-Mich., compared the newly conservative-majority House to "the Duma and the Reichstag," referring to the legislature set up by Czar Nicholas II of Russia and the parliament of the German Weimar Republic that brought Hitler to power.
About President George Herbert Walker Bush, Rep. Maxine Waters, D-Calif., said: "I believe (Bush) is a racist for many, many reasons. ... (He's) a mean-spirited man who has no care or concern about what happens to the African American community. ... I truly believe that."
About the Republican-controlled House, longtime Harlem Democratic Rep. Charlie Rangel, in 1994, said: "It's not 's---' or 'n-----' anymore. (Republicans) say, 'Let's cut taxes.'" A decade later, Rangel said, "George (W.) Bush is our Bull Connor," referring to the Birmingham, Alabama, Democrat segregationist superintendent of public safety who sicced dogs and turned fire hoses on civil rights workers.
Donna Brazile, Al Gore's presidential campaign manager, in 1999, said: Republicans have a "white boy attitude, (which means) 'I must exclude, denigrate and leave behind.' They don't see it or think about it. It's a culture." The following year, Brazile said: "The Republicans bring out Colin Powell and (Rep.) J.C. Watts, (R-Okla.), because they have no program, no policy. ... They'd rather take pictures with Black children than feed them."
About President George W. Bush, former Vice President Al Gore said: "(Bush's) executive branch has made it a practice to try and control and intimidate news organizations, from PBS to CBS to Newsweek. ... And every day, they unleash squadrons of digital brownshirts to harass and hector any journalist who is critical of the President." Digital "brownshirts"?
About George W. Bush, George Soros, the billionaire Democratic donor, said: "The Bush administration and the Nazi and communist regimes all engaged in the politics of fear. ... Indeed, the Bush administration has been able to improve on the techniques used by the Nazi and communist propaganda machines."
Former NAACP Chairman Julian Bond, in a 2006 speech at historically Black Fayetteville State University said, "The Republican Party would have the American flag and the swastika flying side by side."
Former Gov. Howard Dean, chairman of the Democratic National Committee in 2005, described the contest between Democrats and Republicans as "a struggle between good and evil. And we're the good." Three years later, Dean referred to the GOP as "the white party."
After Hurricane Katrina, Democratic Missouri Senate candidate Claire McCaskill said George W. Bush "let people die on rooftops in New Orleans because they were poor and because they were Black."
Feminist superlawyer Gloria Allred, in 2001, referred to Colin Powell and Condoleezza Rice as "Uncle Tom types."
Then-Sen. Hillary Clinton, in 2006, said, "The (Republican-controlled) House of Representatives ... has been run like a plantation. And you know what I'm talking about."
Debbie Wasserman Schultz, Democratic National Committee chairwoman in 2011, said "Republicans ... want to literally drag us all the way back to Jim Crow laws."
Again, exactly when did Democrats practice the "civility" to which they wish to return?
Rule #1, never believe a Democrat.
Democrats Want a ‘Return to Civility’
Democrats Want a ‘Return to Civility’
Never. And they’ve always hated us and accused us of being Nazis. It’s way beyond incivility.
Civility: Republican not trying to bite the ankle of the Democrat foot stomping on his face.
They want you to SHUT UP.
They will not now or ever be civil towards you or your beliefs including those in God.
Stalinist lie. Always
After all these years, it appears the only real fascists all along have been the Democrats
Libs/Ds have their own ‘language....
To ‘us’, compromise means they make an offer, we offer less, and we reach an amount we BOTH agree with.
To ‘them’ compromise means they make an offer, we offer less and they raise the original offer.
Only to a LIB can last years budget be 120 billion, they propose 150 billion, we counter with 130 billion and they scream WE are cutting the budget by 20 billion.
We ‘win’ an election by 50-40 and ‘they’ say it is too close to call, must have a recount.
They ‘win’ an election by 50.1 to 49.9 and they declare it a landslide and move on.
If raw sewage is pouring into the basement,
we take steps to stop the leak, clean up the mess and move on..
‘they’ spend millions on committees and such, ending up proposing to raise the floor above till they figure it out.
Democrat, thy name is Hypocrite.
One cannot be a Democrat and also be:
You know when a Commierat is lying when they open their mouths.
They’re still smarting over Lincoln freeing their slaves.
You missed Tip O’Neill - “The evil is in the White House at the present time. And that evil is a man who has no care and no concern for the working class of America and the future generations of America, and who likes to ride a horse. He’s cold. He’s mean. He’s got ice water for blood.”
I wrote off the Democratic Party as hopelessly reprobate when the Harris County (Houston, Texas) Democratic Committee elected convicted murderer and transexual Leslie Perez to the Party Chair. Freak show.
That statement is in the same category as ‘a gun buy back program’. I don’t know of a single person who bought their weapons from the FEDERAL government.
Seems to me to be a cheap way to build a data base of enemies to target very soon.
No they exhibit the desire to stay feral they can’t handle doing by honesty and rules.
They didn’t get to be multi millionaires by being honest.
Are you sure he didn’t say, “return to servility” or “sterility”?
