I’ve written before about the current inability to engage in civil discourse, fueled by mean-spirited spiteful progressive opines, and  exacerbated since O’s election.  Now the alleged death threats and so-called slurs represent heretofore unknown new lows.

When Kathryn Lopez, editor of National Review Online and an associate editor at National Review tweeted this morning right after a radio talk show:

we just played “hit me with your best shot” as bumper music and now i’m afraid there might be a steny hoyer press conference about it.

it was sad but all too true.  House Majority Leader Hoyer has made headlines post- HCR by urging both sides of the aisle to

” exercise some self-restraint.”

Oh Steny, that’s just precious.  Restraint.   Just 48 hours ago Hoyer beseeched members of Congress not to act like some people had acted in town hall meetings, because:

” That is not good for our democracy. It is not good for the civility of our democracy.”

Gotcha Sten, any sort of questioning or disagreement with the progressive party line is obviously bad for the democracy and it’s civility.  RIP democracy, godspeed.
