You may remember President Obama’s recent call for civil discourse this past January. Well, it appears that the Left is still very much struggling with the #newtone online. Unless, of course, you consider a persistent stream of steady death threats against Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker a display of etiquette straight from the Emily Post Etipedia of manners.
Here’s but a small sampling from the #caring Tweeters:
(NOTE: I prefer to view the video with music like this as accompaniment…)
Initially, I’d written a summary here of some of the details around Gov. Walker’s proposal, including some of the positive highlights, like granting employees the right to choose whether or not to contribute dues to a labor union. But then I decided, “nahhhh….why bother?” Agree or disagree with some, all or none of the Governor’s proposal, everyone has something to contribute to the conversation. But death threats are NOT an acceptable part of ANY conversation.
I’d thought we’d learned that by now, after documenting the same exact behavior in January. With all the Big-Brother Twitter monitoring the Soros flunkies are doing out there, you’d think they would have posted and condemned this by now.
So much for that #newtone.
