There can be no reasoning, no rational debate anymore with the Progressive-Democratic Party and the Left in general. This is made clear by the statements luminaries of that collection have made in recent days—confirming their behavior during the Kavanaugh confirmation process just concluded, during which they actively rejected a foundation of liberty: innocent until proven guilty. Senator Kirsten Gillibrand (D, NY) was the loudest on this, saying outright that then-Judge Brett Kavanaugh had to personally authorize an investigation into himself or he would show himself guilty.
It began earlier. Congresswoman Maxine Waters (D, CA) called for Republicans to be physically confronted wherever they are. Senator Corey Spartacus Booker (D, NJ) called on the Left to get up in the face of congresspeople.
Now the Progressive-Democrats and their Left are expanding on the thesis that there can be no rationality in discourse—if, indeed, there can be discourse at all—with those of us to the right of center. Here’s Hillary Clinton, in an interview with CNN:
You cannot be civil with a political party that wants to destroy what you stand for, what you care about…. 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.
That destruction is exactly what the Progressive-Democrats are attempting. Yet, only when that Party is in control can there be any pretense of civility. Only when the Party can require debate to be on their terms, within their parameters, can there be anything like peaceful disagreement.
The threats from the Left are palpable:
- Senator Cory Gardner’s (R, CO) wife received a graphic text message with a video depicting a beheading
- Progressive-Democrat intern Jackson Cosko has been arrested for posting the personal information, including home addresses, of Senators Lindsey Graham (R, SC), Mike Lee (R, UT), and Orrin Hatch (R, UT) on Wikipedia
- Senator Jeff Flake (R, AZ) was trapped in an elevator with two screaming women “activists”
Senator Rand Paul (R, KY) worries about assassination attempts—a concern made concrete by last year’s mass assassination attempt of Republican Congressmen at a baseball practice.
Minnesota Special Education teacher, Samantha Ness, has actively called for the assassination of now-Justice Brett Kavanaugh.
This is just a taste of what we can expect if the Progressive-Democrats are successful in this fall’s elections. This is a taste of Progressive-Democrat “civility.” It isn’t republican democracy that these folks want for our nation. Not anymore.
