The new civility

Not only does syndicated columnist Froma Harrop prove herself a hypocrite, but she doubles down:

Yes, I was angry, but Iím engaging in the defense of my country. I know the tea partiers say the same, but their behavior is that of a national wrecking crew. Most may be nice people who donít know what theyíre doing, but many a country has foundered on the passions of nice people.

As far as the facts are concerned, I stand my ground. Terrorism is not confined to physical attacks.

*Sigh* You think a conservative pundit could get away with such a justification? Cheeyeah, right.

Just look at her quote. Now imagine a reactionary conservative doing the same about, say, anti-war protesters. "Terrorism is not confined to physical attacks" would be the aid said protesters give to the enemy by speaking out against our military efforts. "Iím engaging in the defense of my country" speaks for itself. "But their behavior is that of a national wrecking crew" is the protesters tearing up needed national unity during a war effort. Lastly (and this is perfect against "progressives"), "but many a country has foundered on the passions of nice people" describes myriad liberal policies to perfection: cradle to grave welfare, weak immigration policies, weak law enforcement efforts, head-in-sand foreign policy ... the list is virtually endless here.

So, once again, we unabashedly see that the Left does NOT give one sh** about "civility" in dialogue. They only care about it as it pertains to their opponents. To wit, see here and here.
