"Progressives” and the Art of Civility

When concerned Americans objected to Obama's health care scheme and turned out at town hall meetings in strong opposition, they were called racists and fringe radicals. The Department of Homeland Security then released a report calling those Americans who opposed Obama's policies “potential domestic terrorists.” As more and more Americans took up the protests against an ever growing federal government, the “Progressives” took to the CNN/MSNBC/New York Times media cabal to accuse the growing Tea Party of violence and then called for “civility” in political debate. That of course meant NO DEBATE. Its got to be their way or ... as Teamster leader James Hoffa put it... ”Let's take these sons of bitches out.”

Nice, very civil. If we said it we would be accused of promoting violence. But these are the compassionate progressives, not the racist, violent Tea Party. Following are more of their compassionate, civil quotes and actions, just for the record.

“It's a fight literally for our right to exist. Don't misunderstand what this is. Don't misunderstand — not a joke, not a joke, not an applause line. You are the only folks keeping the barbarians from the gates.... You are the only non-governmental power.... The only one who has the power and capacity to stop this onslaught.... You know, to state simply what I stated two years ago ... the other side has declared war on labors house and it's about time we stand up!” Vice President of the United States Joe Biden, speaking to the same Teamster Labor Day rally with James Hoffa. Hoffa also publicly told Biden that the teamster army is ready to march for Obama.
