No, no, no. Fuck off. The time for civility is gone. Being kind and civil only allows the assholes who aren’t kind and civil to get their way. This is a war for the heart of America, and you don’t win wars through prayer, chanting, or turning the other cheek.
I am not advocating violence. I’m just saying that we have to stop playing “nice” against the bullies. We need to give them their own medicine.
For instance, if Trump was President and the democrats refused to have a hearing for his Supreme Court nominee, he would have appointed him anyway in a recess appointment. Obama didn’t do that because Obama isn’t an asshole.
Recess appointments have never been done with the Supreme Court. On the other hand, a party has never refused to hold hearings on a nominee either. So if they want to play those games, we shouldn’t clutch our pearls and swoon.
We need to treat them how they treat us because otherwise, they’re just beating us up, taking our lunch money, and laughing at us for not fighting back.
