Weiner Flashback and a Lack of Civility

I’m as sick of hearing about disgraced congressman Anthony Weiner as anybody, but in the midst of it all,  I remembered something that happened over a year ago. In March of 2010, Congressman Weiner’s office was sent a suspicious package of white powder. While being interviewed about the incident, Rep. Weiner proceeded to throw the blame at Governor Palin. He said:

When Sarah Palin uses gun analogies and gun imagery when she makes her political point, she may believe that she’s engaging in metaphor. But there are too many people who have twisted minds who might think that she’s being literal. What might seem as an obvious metaphor for some people may seem like an invitation for someone else.

Earlier that day, the pervert who represents New York’s 9th district, had given another interview to a CBS affiliate in which he also stated that Governor Palin was “inciting violence” against Democrats. That interview has since been removed from the affiliate’s webpage.

Now, months after the left’s blood libel against Governor Palin in the wake of the shootings in Tuscon, it’s interesting to see how long the left had been trying to marginalize Governor Palin as some sort of extremist. The attacks the governor endured after that horrible day were no accident. The professional left had been waiting for an incident to pin on Sarah Palin, the Tea Party, or both, for some time. Mr. Weiner proves this by quickly blaming Governor Palin in his own case, before any facts were known.

Shortly after the tragedy in Tucson, the left and all who encompass it, declared that a lack of civility and dangerous political rhetoric were somehow the culprit. President Obama flew into the area to hold a campaign-style “memorial service,” and pronounced that a new era of political discourse was warranted in our country.

Fast forward to June, 2011…

Proving once again that the left views everything within the context of how it will affect them politically, their calls for “civility” were short lived. On Monday, a “comedian” by the name of Chris Titus was recorded saying the following on the Adam Corolla Show:

“You know what man? I am going to literally — if she gets elected president, I am going to hang out on the grassy knoll all the time, just loaded and ready — because you know what? It’s for my country. It’s for my country. If I got to sacrifice myself, it’s for my country.”

In a piece about Titus’ comments posted over at HotAir, Cassy Fiano wrote:

And as you can hear in the video, the audience’s response was to laugh. Apparently, joking about assassination is A-OK as long as it’s someone like Sarah Palin. Yet somehow, it’s the right that supposedly needs lessons in civility. I guess we just don’t understand that it’s perfectly acceptable to murder someone for their political beliefs, so long as the murderer is a liberal and the victim is a conservative. No wonder these morons idolize people like Che Guevara.

So much for civility in politics.

Indeed.

The hypocrisy and insincerity of the left knows no bounds. Like 99.9% of Conservatives, I didn’t believe them when they called for a different discourse. We knew what they were doing the whole time. From a freakish man, who obviously has no trouble telling outrageous lies to your face, like Anthony Weiner – to a talentless, smack spewing scab like Chris Titus, the left’s character deficiency is at an epidemic level. The calls for “civility” were bunk, and the insinuation that Governor Palin was promoting anything other than pro-American, commonsense conservatism, was absolute garbage. It may take time for the Chris Tituses and Anthony Weiners of the world to reveal themselves (no pun intended) but eventually, they will.
