New Civility on Display in Wisconsin Legislature

In the days after the Tucson shootings, the leftwing media did all it could to push the narrative that Sarah Palin, talk radio and right wing rhetoric is what caused it. Barack Obama fueled that narrative at the Memorial service in which he called for more 'civility' in our political discourse. As a creature of the left, this was clearly directed at the right, despite his attempts to massage the message so that it included everyone.

How else should we interpret the media silence as well as the apparent silence of the administration when a male Democrat State Rep. in Wisconsin turned to a female Republican State Rep. after the assembly voted to support Gov. Walker's budget bill and threatened her life?

Last Friday.... after the Assembly voted to engross the Budget Repair Bill, Hintz turned to a female colleague, Rep. Michelle Litjens and said: "You are F***king dead!"
Hintz is now apologizing. Via the Northwestern:
An Oshkosh Assemblyman issued a second public apology in as many weeks Monday, the latest for comments he made on the floor of the Assembly following a vote on a contentious budget repair bill.

Rep. Gordon Hintz, D-Oshkosh, called Rep. Michelle Litjens, R-Winneconne, Monday morning to apologize for his comments that Litjens described as containing an obscenity and the words “you’re dead.” Last week, he accepted responsibility for being issued an ordinance violation for visiting a massage parlor in Appleton that was the subject of a prostitution sting.
It has been less than two months since female politician Gabrielle Giffords was shot in the head. Here we have a State Rep. telling another female politician she's 'F*****G dead.'

Not so long ago, a man was arrested for saying the same thing minus the vulgarity to a Tea Party organizer. Remember this?
When Tucson Tea Party founder Trent Humphries rose to suggest that any conversation about gun control should be put off until after the funerals for all the victims, witnesses say Fuller became agitated. Two told KGUN9 News that finally, Fuller took a picture of Humphries, and said, "You're dead."
Again, the person issuing the threat was from the left.

In the mood for some civility talk from your president? We actually have to go back in time to find it but here ya go...

First up, fast forward to the 0:25 mark to watch him talk of civility:

And of course, this is the part where he tells us all to talk in a way that 'heals, not in a way that wounds.'

Los Angeles Police Union Urging Solidarity with and SEIU

Incredibly interesting account here from a Los Angeles police officer with an assumed name. Jack Dunphy is with the LAPD and as such, is a member of the Los Angeles Police Protective League (LAPPL). He's also a conservative and disagrees with the idea that police officers should stand in solidarity with public sector union protesters. The groups behind the protesters consist of SEIU, and a host of other far left groups that make the jobs of police officers even more difficult than they already are.

That didn't stop the LAPPL from sending out an email to its members that asked them to stand with the protesters; it even directed them to an SEIU website to get more information about the protests, not to keep them orderly, but to join in.

Via Pajamas Media, here is an excerpt from the email Dunphy and his fellow officers received:
At noon local time on Saturday, February 26, will hold rallies in front of every statehouse and in every major city to stand in solidarity with the people of Wisconsin. Find a Rally to Save the American Dream near you by visiting the website and entering your zip code. You can also show your support by sending words of encouragement to Wisconsin’s workers via a special website created by the SEIU.
Dunphy goes on to explain that he and most of his colleagues are conservative and were repulsed by the email. Comments on the blog post even prompted the LAPPL to re-word its verbiage multiple times. The good news here is that it's looking more and more like it's the police union leadership that is driving solidarity with the thugs and many of the rank and file detest the notion.

Who would have guessed that part of the Alinsky strategy we're seeing unfold involved polarizing police departments from the inside? We're beginning to see more and more what Obama meant by this:

Video: Louis Farrakhan Predicts Middle East Uprisings Coming to America

You can consider this Louis Farrakhan's version of Jeremiah Wright's, 'America's chickens have come home to roost' sermon. Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan is exciting insurrection in the United States. In saner times, this would get him a visit from the Feds at the very least. Note he also is calling for the rise of the Mahdi - Islam's messiah. The banners in the video show that this speech took place on February 25th, which was at the same time as these Wisconsin protests. He tells the audience that he 'hope(s) Obama remembers his instructions.'

'This is the Day of your doom, the end of your world...'
