Rush: “Civility” is the new word for “Shut up!”

…and we are not falling for it.

After all, look who’s talking!

Michelle Malkin has done a great public service by compiling The progressive “climate of hate”:  An illustrated primer, 2000-2010, divided into eight parts, such as Palin Hate, Bush Hate, and Anti-Military Hate.  It’s pretty nauseating — but for the sake of history, it needed to be done, and I can only salute Michelle (she must have a cast-iron stomach) for pictorially documenting ten years of leftist spite and spittle.

BUUUURRRRNING HOT has done more of a bullet-point type inventory of the Left’s vandalism, vulgarity and violence that is even more comprehensive than the one I listed here the other day.

Nice Deb (such an appropriate name!) sums up the leftists’ double-standard quite… nicely:

Why is it that whenever conservatism is on the ascendancy – we are chided by the left to tone it down? We saw it happen in the ’90′s when conservative talk radio was on the rise, and we’re seeing it today with the tea party movement.

“Be civil”.

When the the left is losing all the arguments, what do we hear?

“Be civil”.

As Rush Limbaugh said on his show, Friday; “civility” is the new word for “shut up”.

We are brow-beated by the most uncivil of civilians. We are told to “watch our tone” by people who look the other way when conservative leaders are threatened, or verbally abused in the most obscene and unspeakable terms, or hung in effigy. How many leftists have been willing to defend Sarah Palin against the Tucson blood libel? Most have instead, attacked her for using the term, “blood libel”.

How many have been willing to discuss at any length, threats of violence and hate speech against her?

Be civil?

For leftists, being civil is a one-way street. They’re to say whatever they want, and we are to… shut up.

It’s an old trick. Just ask Muhammad, who preached tolerance during “the Mecca period,” then turned bloodthirsty from “the Medina period” onwards.  This was his strategy: When you’re weak and out of power (you’ve just been taken to the cleaners in the mid-term elections, say), you make nice and talk peace-love-and-flowers. Once you have absolute power (like control of the White House and both houses of Congress), you proceed to rape (our national security), rob (our children’s inheritance), burn (the Constitution …and, of course, effigies of Sarah Palin) and pillage ( the Treasury).  Also, vandalize (what was the best health-care system in the world) and enslave everyone (to unions and/or government, which are getting more indistinguishable by the day).  All the while mocking, jeering, cursing, sneering and spitting in our faces.

Ah, but now — now that Republicans once again have control of the House, along with a majority of governorships and state legislatures — the word of the day is “civility.”

Doug Ross translates that word as “hudna,” the Arabic term that Muslims use to describe not a true truce, but rather, the mere cessation of hostilities — so that they can lull us into a false sense of security as they, meanwhile, regroup to fight another day.

Hmmph!  I’m not buying it, and I hope you aren’t either. Certainly Don Surber isn’t:

For a decade, from the election of Bush 43 forward, the Left has lied and cheated as it tried to return to power. Al Gore made a mockery out of the American electoral system by being a spoilsport over Florida, which Bush indeed won by 537 votes. Dan Rather forged a document to try to derail Bush’s re-election. Twice Democrats stole U.S. senators from the Republicans. After voting to support the war to get by the 2002 election, many Democrats quickly soured on the war. The profane protests were cheered by liberals who misattributed “dissent is the highest form of patriotism” to Thomas Jefferson; the words belong to the late [communist] historian Howard Zinn.

Once in power, liberals were the opposite of gracious.

For two years now, I have been called ignorant, racist, angry and violent by the left. The very foul-mouthed protesters of Bush dare to now label my words as “hate speech.”

Last week, the left quickly blamed the right for the national tragedy of a shooting spree by a madman who never watched Fox News, never listened to Rush Limbaugh and likely did not know who Sarah Palin is.

Fortunately, the American public rejected out of hand that idiotic notion that the right was responsible.

Rather than apologize, the left wants to change the tone of the political debate.

The left suddenly wants civil discourse.

Bite me.

The left wants to play games of semantics.

Bite me.

The left wants us to be civil — after being so uncivil for a decade.

Bite me.

There is grown-up work to do now. Liberals ran up the federal credit card, destroyed the American medical system and undermined the rule of law — which is the foundation of capitalism — with a bunch of unconstitutional fiats from the president and his bureaucracy.

The economy is a mess. The president “inherited” a 7.6% unemployment rate. It’s now 9.4% — after we spent a record $787 billion on a stimulus.

I was not consulted on that stimulus. I had a very good argument against it. I said the money supply was too large and printing more money would fail. I said let the economic downturn run its course.

Lefties were too busy celebrating the 2008 election to listen.

When people protested, lefties made vulgar remarks about tea-bagging and giggled.

So screw you and your civil discourse.

I don’t want to hear it.

I have been screamed at for 10 years.

It’s my turn now. I am not going to scream back. But I refuse to allow anyone to dictate what I say or how I say it. I refuse to allow the same foul-mouthed, foul-spirited foul people who dumped on me to now try to tell me what I may or may not say.

My free speech matters more than the feelings of anyone on the left. You don’t like what I say? Tough.

I will not allow people to label my words Hate Speech or try to lecture me on civility. I saw the lefty signs. The left’s definition of civil discourse is surreal.

We have a terribly unfit president who has expanded government control beyond not only what is constitutional but what is healthy for our freedom.

Indeed, this call for civil discourse is itself a direct threat to my free speech.

So screw you.

You don’t like my words? You don’t like my tone? You feel threatened?

Too bad.


Actually, that is what I want. I want the lefties to feel bad. I want them to feel hurt. I want them to cry to their mommies.

That way the field will be cleared so we grown-ups can fix the nation and the economy. If you can’t put up with a little excrement, get the hell out of the barn.

And if that‘s too tame for you, try Tammy Bruce.
