I blame liberal hate rhetoric

So much for Jon Stewart's call for more civility in our discourse today, eh?

Jon Stewart's bold statements about creating more of a "Rally for Sanity" sphere for civility in public discourse certainly aren't rubbing off on his employees. Daily Show correspondent John Oliver proclaimed in a "comedy" routine that he hated Denver Broncos quarterback/Christian missionary Tim Tebow so much he'd shoot him before he'd shoot Osama bin Laden. Barry Rothbard at Power Grid posted video of this jaw-dropping attempt at laughs:

I dislike Robert Mugabe. I hate Tim Tebow. If I was in a room with Tim Tebow and Bin Laden and I had a gun with one bullet in it, Id shoot Bin Laden. Im not a monster. But if I had two bullets Id shoot Tim Tebow first.

How dare you thank God before thanking your offensive lineIf I was an offensive lineman for Tim Tebow and I heard him thank god instead of thanking me at the end of the game Id find myself lining up for the following game and say oh Tim I heard your press conference at the end of the game last week, great to hear Jesus get a shoutout. Wasnt he fantastic for us? Wasnt God great, especially in that fourth quarter?

Folks, you must understand that "progressives" do not really want more civility in everyday political discourse. For them, "civility" means "agreeing with them." If you do not agree with them, then there is no such thing as civility. Period. (Locally, just take a gander at the main "progressives" that infest one of my favorite stop-over blogs.)

So, do not believe your local "progressive" when he makes such declarations. At least not at first. Because chances are he in no way means it.

I always figured they're idea of crossing the aisle was tantamount to saying, "okay now if you give us what we want we'll give you a few tax breaks, since we know taxes are too damn high anyway, just as long as you don't ask us to cut spending or regulations."

Oh I almost forgot, there is one other example, like when they say "okay, you know we don't really believe in going to war for any reason, but we'll go along with you up to a point, as long as you don't try to kill too many of the enemy until we negotiate a peaceful solution"

You could probably come up with other examples, but you get the point. Maybe I should write a book, Bipartisanship For Dummies.
