Civility Watch: Democrats Can't Help Themselves From Pushing The Murder Button

It was a scam, of course. Drudge's crafty headlines make it clear, on the off chance it wasn't before.

Jesse Jackson says the budget fight is the Civil War all over again, because apparently we have $4 billion earmarked to enslave blacks. Or something.

"[T]his really is a Civil War fight,” Jackson said. “This is making the federal government dysfunctional on the 150th anniversary of the Civil War. These guys will support three wars. They’ll support tax dodgers. They’ll support the wealthiest Americans getting tax breaks. They want to cut into education and health care. This is an ideological battle.”

Jackson said those trying to shut down the federal government are doing so to make an “ideological-religious point.”

“This is a Civil War fight,” he said. “I think Time magazine has it right. This is the 150th anniversary of the 1861 Civil War. Now those are determined to shut the federal government down to make their point — their ideological-religious point.”

He repeats "Civil War fight" twice in case you missed it the first time.

Tally: 2 war, 1 fight, enslavement 1

Eleanor Holmes Norton says the proposed budget cuts are like "bombing innocent civilians."

“We are absolutely outraged. This is the functional equivalent of bombing innocent civilians,” she said.

“It’s time that the District of Columbia told the Congress to go straight to hell,” Norton continued...

Tally: War 2, fight 1, enslavement 1, bombing 1, war crimes 1, straight to hell 1

Granny Rictus McBotoxImplants says it's a "war on women."

“There is actually a war on women,” the California Democrat said...

“We have to create a drumbeat across America.”

Dingy Harry Reid says the GOP wants women to get cancer.

"Republicans want to shut down the government because they think there's nothing more important than keeping women from getting cancer screenings. This is indefensible and everyone should be outraged," Reid said on the Senate floor.

Tally: War 3, fight 1, bombing 1, enslavement 1, war crimes 1, straight to hell 1, drumbeat (for war) 1, campaign for malicious vandalism 1, gender-discriminating bioterrorism 1

Dingy Harry also says this is throwing women under the bus.

Reid, D-Nev., said it is "shameful" that Republicans are trying to move "an extreme social agenda" that will "throw women under a bus even if it means it will shut down the government."

Tally: War 3, fight 1, bombing 1, enslavement 1, war crimes 1, straight to hell 1, drumbeat (for war) 1, campaign for malicious vandalism 1, gender-discriminating bioterrorism 1, gender-targeted vehicular manslaughter 1


Louise Slaughter says GOP freshmen were elected to "kill women."

In ’94 people were elected simply to come here to kill the National Endowment for the Arts. Now they’re here to kill women.

Tally: War 3, fight 1, bombing 1, enslavement 1, war crimes 1, straight to hell 1, drumbeat (for war) 1, campaign for malicious vandalism 1, gender-discriminating bioterrorism 1, gender-targeted vehicular manslaughter 1, government conspiracy to commit serial killings of women 1

Okay, now I'm just being sort of silly because I'm bored. And that's just today.

But whatever you do: Don't use heated rhetoric that conjures images of war and might inspire violence!

On the other hand, Obama merely calls the budget fight -- which most other people would call his "job duties" -- a "distraction."

A "distraction"? His actual job duties are a "distraction" to him? A distraction from what?

Why, scenic Williamsburg, of course!


Thanks to lacyunderalls for pointing out the Louise Slaughter claim, which really buttons it all up.
