73% of Americans say U.S. Political Debate is Increasingly Uncivil

THE POLITICAL RHETORIC IS GETTING OUT OF CONTROL …

As per s CBS News poll, an overwhelming number of Americans believe the political debate in America is becoming increasing uncivil. Well, maybe that is because it is. But then again, hasn’t it been uncivil for quite some time? However, since Donald Trump has become president, the LEFT has completely become unhinged and their so-called leaders have said some shameful and hateful things. Last week we were witness to a far-Left individual who volunteered on the Bernie Sanders campaign attempt a mass assassination of Republicans.  Sadly, Americans who are polled only seem to be creatures of the moment as reported at the Politico, a majority approve of Congress’ handling of shooting. Wake up America, talk is cheap. One week later, Democrats are back to their old ways. What is ironic is that 85% of Democrats polled said that the current tone if political debate is encouraging violence and yet it is that that are causing the violence.

Members of Congress are getting positive ratings for the way they responded to the shooting in Alexandria, Virginia, last week. President Trump gets slightly lower — though still net positive — evaluations for his response to the attack, partly because Democrats are less likely to approve of his handling than of Congress’. Fifty-three percent of Americans approved of Congress’ response, and 29 percent disapproved, while 46 percent approved of President Trump’s response, and 36 percent disapproved.

And while Congress and many observers called for a more civil tone to political debate in the wake of the events, Americans of all political leanings overwhelmingly say that the tone and level of civility in our political debates has been getting worse in recent years.

These views are largely the same across ideologies, too, as about two-thirds of liberals, conservatives and even more moderates feel things have gotten worse.

Seriously America, take a good hard look to who is promoting and causing the violence.

Donald Trump Says Regarding Contested Convention: ‘I Hope It Doesn’t Involve Violence’

WOW DONALD, THAT IS MIGHTY BIG OF YOU …

Donald Trump said Sunday in Staten Island, NY. “I hope it doesn’t involve violence, and I don’t think it will. But I will say this, it’s a rigged system, it’s a crooked system. It’s 100 percent corrupt.” Really Donald, you are still whining about this near one week later?  With regards to Trumps comments that he hopes there is not violent, I would say, you are hardly doing anything to prevent it as you get people to a fever pitch with your rhetoric. There are plenty of things in politics that are rigged and corrupt, however, this is not one of them. I wonder is this is how he acts in his own business when he has to follow the rules that are set up to bid a contract? It is disconcerting that Trump does not seem to grasp the delegate process that has been around forever. If he cannot understand and navigate his way thru this process, what is he going to do when it comes to the electoral college and the job of president of the United States?

Folks, you don’t get to be a king when you are president. Note to Republicans, isn’t that one of your main gripes about Barack Obama?

Donald Trump thumbs up

Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump said Sunday that he hopes a contested Republican convention in July “doesn’t involve violence” if he is denied the nomination during second-ballot voting.

“I hope it doesn’t involve violence. I hope it doesn’t. I’m not suggesting that,” Trump told reporters on Sunday here in Staten Island. “I hope it doesn’t involve violence, and I don’t think it will. But I will say this, it’s a rigged system, it’s a crooked system. It’s 100 percent corrupt.”

Trump said Saturday that the Republican National Committee is in for a “rough July” if he does not receive the nomination despite his overwhelming delegate lead. If the billionaire fails to cross the 1,237-delegate threshold necessary to clinch the nomination outright, anti-Trump conservatives hope to challenge him at the convention and install an establishment-friendly alternative.

More from Ann Althouse

Said Donald Trump today. Does he sound like he’s encouraging violence even when he’s saying he hopes there won’t be violence? If so, it’s because he doesn’t say “I don’t want violence” or “I urge my supporters to refrain from violence.” There’s something oddly passive about “I hope it doesn’t involve violence” — as if he holds no sway with his supporters, as if he’s suggesting it’s up to the other side to resist doing the things that will necessitate violence from my people. So I hear a vague, deniable threat. And this too contains a vague, deniable threat:

Colorado ACLU Board Member: Shoot Trump Voters ‘Before Election Day’ … From the LIB who Called Trump a Hate Speech Felon

JUST CURIOUS, HOW DO YOU THINK THE MSM WOULD REACT IF DONALD TRUMP OR ANY REPUBLICAN MADE SUCH A COMMENT?

Isn’t it the unhinged, lunatic LEFT that is against guns and gun violence? Hmm, then why would Loring Wirbel, board member of the American Civil Liberties Union’s Colorado chapter and co-chair of the ACLU’s Colorado Springs chapter, call for supporters of GOP presidential hopeful Donald Trump to be shot before they vote for the billionaire businessman? Where is the liberal tolerance? Where’s the love? Better than that, this moron calls Trump a hate speech felon and yet is calling for people to shoot people in the process, seriously? Who’s the felon?

Isn’t the liberal left double standard of intolerance remarkable? These are the folks that rail about free speech, yet they look to prevent Donald Trump from having his. Then this is the same bunch that look to take the guns away from law abiding citizens while they make threats of gun violence and call for voters to be shot. Unreal and SICK!

Trump_shoot supporters

Loring Wirbel, board member of the American Civil Liberties Union’s Colorado chapter and co-chair of the ACLU’s Colorado Springs chapter, called for supporters of GOP presidential hopeful Donald Trump to be shot before they vote for the billionaire businessman.

Comparing Trump to Nazi propagandist Joseph Goebbels, Wirbel wrote in his Facebook page:

The thing is, we have to really reach out to those who might consider voting for Trump and say, “This is Goebbels. This is the final solution. If you are voting for him I will have to shoot you before election day.” They’re not going to listen to reason, so when justice is gone, there’s always force, as Laurie would say.

More insane rants from the LEFT via Twitchy.

Just curious, how is one allowed to make such a threat like this and a call for violence? Sorry, this goes beyond free speech.
