Democrats across the spectrum, from “moderate” Hillary Clinton to radical Maxine Waters, are claiming an end to civility. They do not see a need to be civil with those who disagree with their perspectives, which means they’re saving their civility for… those who agree? That doesn’t make much sense, as Daily Wire’s Michael Knowles points out in his latest video.
One does not have to be civil with people who agree with them. Civility is an way of working with people who may disagree with you but who you can work with to find common ground and compromise. But Democrats aren’t looking at things the same way they did when bipartisanship was still alive and well in Washington DC. The biggest reason for this shift isn’t the change in politicians. It’s a change in the leftists themselves.
To modern progressives, civility with opposing forces represents weakness. Whether it’s Rashida Tlaib saying she’s going to “impeach the m*********er” or Maxine Waters calling for people to corner and intimidate or even attack members of the Trump administration, they’ve learned the only way they can retain power is to abandon civility and pander to the growing Antifa-minded leftists who are taking over the party.
As Knowles notes, the attacks on Joe Biden are manufactured from the new outrage the left has embraced that makes any form of civility obsolete. It’s complete obedience to the cause or political death. They are lost.
