Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Wednesday, October 10, 2018

Republicans only respect strength and Democrats can only afford civility if they win in the upcoming midterms, Hillary Clinton has argued against the backdrop of increasingly violent US politics.

"You cannot be civil with a political party that wants to destroy what you stand for, what you care about," the former presidential candidate told CNN's Christiane Amanpour in an interview that aired Tuesday. "That's why I believe if we are fortunate enough to win back the House and or the Senate, that's when civility can start again. But until then the only thing the Republicans seem to recognize and respect is strength."

Only Republicans are allowed to be uncivil ...

• calling for jailing Democrats
• racist insults at Obama
• violent and vile threats at Hillary
• calling Bill Clinton a draft dodger
• calling into question the patriotism of Democrats

Thread Sucks

Hillary is calling for you to be even more ignorant and hysterical than the norm, Pinch. Don't let her down.

So I guess it's worked. The Pubs have succeeded in pulling mainstream politics down to their level.

If you heard Trump and his Trumpettes last night chanting "lock her up" about Feinstein, or Trump's rabid lying and inciting the crowd, you might understand one side is past the point where civility is ever going to happen. Changing the dangerous course we're on is our best hope.

That is done, historically, by either going to war, or by throwing out the cancer through elections.
America is at crossroads, or very close to it.
This next election may very well determine where we go as a Nation, and how the world will respond.
Time to turn the ship, at least a bit.

That's the only way to (possibly) cool things down.

And yes. Trump needs to go.

Amazing that anyone would defend these uncivil remarks. The Dems are going to act like an angry mob until they have power and continue to harass people in elevators, restaurants, airports, etc. Unbelievable. Sorest. Losers. Ever.

--Seems like yesterday

CLEVELAND - Hillary Clinton told Ohio voters that Donald Trump is threatening America's democracy by not promising to accept the results of the presidential election.

"We know, in our country, the difference between leadership and dictatorship. And the peaceful transition of power is something that sets us apart,"

Oh the horrors.

A sample from Trump's speech last night:

"The Democrats have become too extreme and, frankly, they've become too dangerous to govern, ...They've gone wacko."
"angry left-wing mob."
"You don't hand matches to arsonists,"

Crowd Chants "Lock her up! Lock her up!"

Listening to it it was clear he was urging violence and inciting his crowd. Him. He's rachetting things up and up and up.

You want civility now? Shove it.

"Democrat elected leaders like Maxine Waters and Corey Booker are calling for violence and confrontation. There are regular violent encounters on college campuses with the left designed to shut down free speech. It's officially okay now to punch a Nazi and by the way readers, you are a Nazi. Yeah, YOU.

GOP congressmen were targeted for assassination. Rep. Scalise was almost killed by a Bernie bro. Senator Rand Paul was assaulted by his lefty neighbor ending up with broken ribs. Trump cabinet members are assaulted and confronted in public (many of them women!) so we get it, we get it.

Senator Paul is right, someone is going to get killed.

"I fear that there's going to be an assassination," Paul told Kentucky radio host Leland Conway. "I really worry that someone is going to be killed and that those who are ratcheting up the conversation, those who are saying ‘get in their face' – they have to realize that they bear some responsibility if this elevates to violence."

"These are people that are unstable," Paul said. "We don't want to encourage them. We have to somehow ratchet it down and say we're not encouraging them that violence is ever OK or ever a reason or a means to try to resolve things."

So now you answer real charges with made up crap? You lie. You go to ridiculous levels to feed your confirmation bias.

I searched the web for your quotes above. ONE HIT. ONE.

You've gone down the rabbit hole, Null.

You don't even bother citing your sources because they're such garbage. Let me cite the ONE source since you wouldn't bother:

pjmedia.com

You don't deserve civility or respect. You and your kind should be driven back into the hole you crawled out from.

That's not an incitement to violence; it's a call to vote against Democrats.

Nice try.

IF you think you are uncivil then you don't know what incivility means. You are definitely not uncivil (that's a good thing, BTW).

Thanks Jeff.
I'm not, and if Null wants to believe that, or make that charge, I'm fine with it.
Nothing I say is going to change his mind, and it just doesn't matter.

I do wish that hadn't happened to his truck.

Having had an anti-Obama person chase me down the road with his truck and another one right-wing whacko stalk me for 6 miles, then verbally abuse me, I can appreciate the lack of respect and abusive nature some people exhibit.

I removed my 5"x7" Obama "Hope" sticker after the second incident. Too many loons out there.

None of this takes away from the vitriol, the hate, the division that Trump stirs up, over and over again.

Enjoy your faux indignation. You love that you can point at this man's misfortune and use it, politically.

You are as sick as the people that torched his truck.

The Dems have already tried to murder Repub congress members.

Many have been injured by the Dems.

When someone is killed their blood will be on the hands of people like Hillary, Holder and Waters.

Both sides trying to play "holier-than-thou" is outright hilarious.

Nulli cherry picks individual incidents of left-on-right violence and ignores his president outright calling for violence against people who disagree with him. The blinders are laughable.

Likewise, members of congress should not be encouraging protesters to interfere with the daily lives of their political opponents. I have no problem with Richard Spencer being shouted out of a restaurant or gym, but for our elected officials to call for that type of action is beyond the pale.

We're living in extraordinary times. My own belief is that ordinary measures are inadequate to deal with the extraordinary behavior exhibited by Trump and ignored by people like Nulli, Sentinel, Visitor_, pretty much every Republican member of congress, and so forth. Specifically calling for incivility, though, is a dangerous slope and one that I'm not sure we should be heading down.

A clarion call to the DNC's version of the Sturmabteilung. The only problem is that, instead of healthy young men, we'll be seeing shrieking feminists and soyboys answering the call to action. They don't make for good infantry (let alone shock-troops), be it in a Weimer-esque street battle or otherwise, because they don't wake up before the late afternoon. There aren't enough SorosBux in the universe to compel them otherwise.
