Democrat/Socialist Party Civil Discourse

Last January, when Arizona Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords was shot and others killed by a deranged individual, liberal-progressives were quick to blame conservatives who had disagreed, sometimes in strong language, with Democrat/Socialist Party policies and actions.  Mainstream liberal-progressive media self-righteously called for muffling conservative voices in the name of civility.

Obama, the head socialist, remains silent, however, regarding physical violence by labor unions, the poster boys for world socialism and class warfare.  His failure to denounce such illegal, destructive action, as well as violent language by labor union leader Jimmie Hoffa, spotlights the noxious hypocrisy of liberal-progressive calls for civil discourse, revealing them as no more than attempts to stifle freedom of speech.
