When 'civility' becomes all the rage

Wesley Pruden, Washington Times

Civility is a good thing. Angry arguments rarely make anyone feel good. But the only thing that would make civility and peace and descend on the land would be by one side surrendering to the other. That’s not going to happen, nor should it. Anyone who imagines that’s the good old American way doesn’t know much about the history of our politics. This, too, shall pass. It always has. But it wouldn’t hurt to turn down the noise, and even occasionally shut up.

Is This Worse Than '68?

Patrick J. Buchanan, The American Conservative

After his slim victory, Nixon declared that his government would take as its theme the words on a girl's placard that he had seen in the Ohio town of Deshler: "Bring us together." Nixon tried in his first months, but it was not to be. According to Bryan Burrough, author of "Days of Rage, America's Radical Underground, the FBI, and the Forgotten Age of Revolutionary Violence," "During an eighteen month period in 1971 and 1972, the FBI reported more than 2,500 bombings on U.S. soil, nearly 5 a day." No, 2018 is not 1968, at least not yet.

This Jewish Boy Is Going to Buy a Gun

Roger L. Simon, PJ Media

Hitler took the guns away from the German Jewish population in 1938. We all know what happened. It's actually too grisly to contemplate, even for this author of Holocaust movies. I will buy a gun with a heavy heart. It's not something I really want to do. I don't enjoy hunting (I've tried it) and find target practice only mildly diverting, something I would only want to do a few times a year. (I'll have to do more.) But the world gives me little choice, not just as a Jew but as a citizen. Self-defense is common sense.

Fight The Mean-Spirited Democrat Attack On Justice Clarence Thomas

If the Kavanaugh hearings were one brief window into the way the radical violence-prone Democrats operate, their latest campaign against constitutional conservative Justice Clarence Thomas shows just how mean-spirited they are every day. We urge our CHQ readers and friends to fight this mean-spirited attack on Justice Thomas by clicking through this link to sign Mr. Lamar Bowman’s petition in support of Justice Thomas.

Aided By Big Tech And Media Far Left Is Organizing For More Political Assassinations

Just in case you bought the establishment media’s narrative that the attempted assassination of House Republican Whip Rep. Steve Scalise and the rest of the Republican baseball team was the one-off work of a nut, our friends at Far Left Watch have a chilling report to once and for all disabuse you of that fantasy.

Must See Video: “Say NO to the Mob”

ForAmerica.org's “Say NO to the Mob” dramatically shows that the Democrats’ words do have consequences, and those consequences are broken windows, beaten Trump supporters and gunfire aimed at Republican members of Congress. You can view the video through this link.

Exposing Antifa, The Shock Troops Of The Democrats’ Civil War

Exposing their identities seems to have touched a cord with the usually masked thugs of Antifa, who rely on covering their faces to protect them from being identified when they commit assault, arson, vandalism and various other crimes.

Why Gun Grabbers Are All In To Defeat Kavanaugh Nomination

"Kavanaugh believes in a very vigorous Second Amendment right to bear arms, and he thinks there is little room for constitutionally permissible gun control," says UCLA law professor Adam Winkler, which is one reason why the Left so vehemently opposes him.

Why Are Liberals So Violent?

Craig Shirley and Scott Mauer, CNS News

Both individual and state-sponsored terrorism and murder and violence is nothing new, but there’s something to be said when an ideology places the collective over the individual. To place the group before the individual is to deny the humanity of the person, where the means of achieving a “utopia” is justified. Violence, murder, slave labor – all is right in the collectivists’ minds.

Democrats Have Already Started The Second Civil War

The FBI defines domestic terrorism as events that appear intended to "intimidate or coerce a civilian population" or "influence the policy of a government by intimidation or coercion." If that is not what the Left has been engaged in with increasing ferocity, especially over the past two weeks, then “intimidation and coercion” have lost their meaning.

The Real World Is Starting To Resemble Twitter, And That’s A Problem

David Harsanyi, The Federalist

The next phase of our ginned-up national moral panic will contain public shunning and harassment in their private lives of people we disagree with. It isn’t only about child separation of illegal immigrants. It’s about tax cuts. It’s about Obamacare. It’s about long-standing conservative positions. According to many, Republicans are accomplices to murder. The hysterics that bloom with every debate are creating a swelling exasperation among Democrats that borders on religiosity. Apparently this excuses almost any behavior or rhetoric.

A Fascist Right -- or a Hysterical Left?

Patrick J. Buchanan, The American Conservative

The left, to the point of irrationality, despises a triumphant Trumpian right and believes that to equate it with fascists is not only legitimate, but a sign that the accusers are the real moral, righteous and courageous dissenters in these terrible times. Historians are calling the outbursts of hate unprecedented. They are not. When it comes to the rhetoric of hate, the cursing of politicians, the shouting down of speakers, the right is not innocent, but the left is infinitely more guilty. It was to the Donald Trump rallies, not the Bernie Sanders rallies, that the provocateurs came to start the fights.

Why the Left Is Having a Nervous Breakdown

Roger L. Simon, PJ Media

Trump is what the shrinks call the "presenting complaint." The real problem, as is often the case in psychotherapy, is something entirely different. And it is this: The left is dead. It's not only dead, it's decomposed with no there there or anywhere. The left has nothing to say, only most of them don't quite realize it yet. But this blockage, this reluctance and even inability to deal with what is actually happening shuts down the brain and emerges as anger, the hamster wheel of constant rage against Trump.

Liberals’ Hatred Will Inevitably Turn Into Violence

Kurt Schlichter, Townhall

Only liberals can choose not to go down the road to widespread, systematic violence. But if they choose poorly, Normals are ready, willing, and able stop them. Last month, Normal Americans bought over two million new guns. They’ve got 400 million already. Normals are sitting on a towering mountain of lead-launching freedom. But we’d prefer the option the liberals have ignored – a return to a society where disputes are resolved via the processes outlined in the Constitution and the individual rights set forth within it are respected.

The Left’s Next Step Is Open Violence Against Conservatives

Unless Democrats and the cultural and political leadership of the Left come out firmly against mob violence this dangerous situation is only going to escalate. A good start would be a congressional censure of Rep. Waters, but unambiguous statements from Left-leaning cultural and media leaders, like The Washington Post, that political violence is not to be tolerated are also needed.

Kill Chic

Victor Davis Hanson, National Review

In 2017, the obsessive hatred of Trump led to many obscenities: Madonna told us she dreamed of blowing up the White House, comedian Kathy Griffin posed with a bloody facsimile of Trump’s head, Snoop Dog shot a Trump likeliness in a video, a Shakespearean company ritually stabbed Trump-Caesar every night on stage, Johnny Depp joked, “When was the last time an actor assassinated a president? … It has been a while, and maybe it is time.” But such kill chic is hardly new — and hardly a result of Trump’s sometimes reckless tweets or undisciplined outbursts.

Violencing Politics, Speech, and Religion

The Constitution creates a system of regular and non-violent transition of political power. However, in the view of the anti-constitutional left it seems violence is a justifiable response to losing political power.

Democrats Welcome Chairman Mao To America

Republicans and conservatives must force themselves to recognize that the violence perpetrated in Charlottesville, Philadelphia and Berkeley was just the probing movements of a coming hardcore Leftist revolution that intends through violence and intimidation to destroy constitutional liberty.

Dem Operative Who Oversaw Trump Rally Agitators Visited White House 342 Times

Peter Hasson, Daily Caller

Robert Creamer, who acted as a middle man between the Clinton campaign, the Democratic National Committee and “protesters” who tried — and succeeded — to provoke violence at Trump rallies met with President Obama 47 times, according to White House records. Creamer’s last visit was in June 2016.
