Democrats Want a ‘Return to Civility’; When Did They Practice It?

A 2020 Joe Biden campaign ad described the pending election as an “opportunity to leave the dark, angry politics of the past behind us.” After Biden’s election, he, Democrats and media urge a “return to civility.” But when did the Democrats practice the very civility to which they seek to return?

Let’s go to the videotape:

When Barry Goldwater accepted the 1964 Republican nomination, California’s Democratic Gov. Pat Brown said, “The stench of fascism is in the air.”

Former Rep. William Clay Sr., D-Mo., said President Ronald Reagan was “trying to replace the Bill of Rights with fascist precepts lifted verbatim from ‘Mein Kampf.'”

Coretta Scott King, in 1980, said, “I am scared that if Ronald Reagan gets into office, we are going to see more of the Ku Klux Klan and a resurgence of the Nazi Party.”

After Republicans took control of the House in the mid-’90s, Rep. John Dingell, D-Mich., compared the newly conservative-majority House to “the Duma and the Reichstag,” referring to the legislature set up by Czar Nicholas II of Russia and the parliament of the German Weimar Republic that brought Hitler to power.

About President George Herbert Walker Bush, Rep. Maxine Waters, D-Calif., said: “I believe (Bush) is a racist for many, many reasons. … (He’s) a mean-spirited man who has no care or concern about what happens to the African American community. … I truly believe that.”

About the Republican-controlled House, longtime Harlem Democratic Rep. Charlie Rangel, in 1994, said: “It’s not ‘s—-‘ or ‘n——-‘ anymore. (Republicans) say, ‘Let’s cut taxes.'” A decade later, Rangel said, “George (W.) Bush is our Bull Connor,” referring to the Birmingham, Alabama, Democrat segregationist superintendent of public safety who sicced dogs and turned fire hoses on civil rights workers.

Donna Brazile, Al Gore’s presidential campaign manager, in 1999, said: Republicans have a “white boy attitude, (which means) ‘I must exclude, denigrate and leave behind.’ They don’t see it or think about it. It’s a culture.” The following year, Brazile said: “The Republicans bring out Colin Powell and (Rep.) J.C. Watts, (R-Okla.), because they have no program, no policy. … They’d rather take pictures with Black children than feed them.”

About President George W. Bush, former Vice President Al Gore said: “(Bush’s) executive branch has made it a practice to try and control and intimidate news organizations, from PBS to CBS to Newsweek. … And every day, they unleash squadrons of digital brownshirts to harass and hector any journalist who is critical of the President.” Digital “brownshirts”?

About George W. Bush, George Soros, the billionaire Democratic donor, said: “The Bush administration and the Nazi and communist regimes all engaged in the politics of fear. … Indeed, the Bush administration has been able to improve on the techniques used by the Nazi and communist propaganda machines.”

Former NAACP Chairman Julian Bond, in a 2006 speech at historically Black Fayetteville State University said, “The Republican Party would have the American flag and the swastika flying side by side.”

Former Gov. Howard Dean, chairman of the Democratic National Committee in 2005, described the contest between Democrats and Republicans as “a struggle between good and evil. And we’re the good.” Three years later, Dean referred to the GOP as “the white party.”

After Hurricane Katrina, Democratic Missouri Senate candidate Claire McCaskill said George W. Bush “let people die on rooftops in New Orleans because they were poor and because they were Black.”

Feminist superlawyer Gloria Allred, in 2001, referred to Colin Powell and Condoleezza Rice as “Uncle Tom types.”

Then-Sen. Hillary Clinton, in 2006, said, “The (Republican-controlled) House of Representatives … has been run like a plantation. And you know what I’m talking about.”

Debbie Wasserman Schultz, Democratic National Committee chairwoman in 2011, said “Republicans … want to literally drag us all the way back to Jim Crow laws.”

Again, exactly when did Democrats practice the “civility” to which they wish to return?

    1. DEMORATS STARTED THE K.K.K IN THE 1920’S AND THE ANTIFA’S IN THIRTY’S
      WHEN THEY LET THE COMMUNIST SET UP THE COMMUNIST PARTY >
      WHY DON’T THE DEMORATS LEARN OR READ THE HISTORY OF THE USA AND
      STOP MAKING IT UP AS THEY GO> JUST PATHETIC THEY ARE JUST A BIG LIE>:

      1. The Democrats are like the bully on the block, nothing is going to happen until he bullies someone who says, not me and not today.

  1. The Democrats have never been civil. But they expect others to treat them like royalty or is that “comrads”?

    1. I believe the logo that you refer to is supposed to be another breed of the donkey known as the jacka**. I believe that is more appropriate.

  2. You will NEVER convince me that Biden was legally voted into office. Of course, unless you have your head in the sand and look no farther than the end of your nose, you have to know this beyond a reasonable doiubt. A complete audit of ALL votes needs to be audited. Why would we let an illegal President ruin this country, guided of course, by his minions? Somebody please answer this question.

    1. I too, will never be convinced that Biden won the election legally. However, like everyone else, I can’t prove that he didn’t win. What has become extremely obvious over the last four years, is the way that most of the news media has supported any type of lies, or misrepresentations about President Trump or any conservatives. Trump tried to correct many of the things that have been going wrong for the American people in the last 90 years! The media treated Trump like Al Capone would. Nothing was too crooked for them to brainwash the American people into believing. Unfortunately, it seems as though the hard work of most Americans, providing and saving for their families and their future, is now being used to handcuff them into accepting the worst that can happen to them, their gradual loss of freedom.

    2. Remember what Biden said about two weeks before the election: “We have put together the most extensive and inclusive voter fraud organization in the history of American politics.” – Joe Biden, October 24, 2020. That was the most honest thing he said in his lifetime.

  3. I too want a full and verifiable AUDIT of all votes. Joe (I can’t call him President) knows he is illegitimate. He is on his way to the depths of a black hole with the the great pain in brain HE CHEATED ALLL THROUGH IS LIFE.

    1. I agree with Bill above?
      I too want a full and verifiable AUDIT of all votes. Joe (I can’t call him President) knows he is illegitimate. He is on his way to the depths of a black hole with the the great pain in brain HE CHEATED ALLL THROUGH IS LIFE.

  4. IF WE THE PEOPLE (aka SILENT MAJORTY) sit back and do nothing but piss and moan on media, then we are equally complicit.

    WE need to call our Rep and Senators in DC and DEMAND a COMPLETE, FULL and DETAILED investigation and audit of the 2020 Election Fraud Scheme.

    WE also need to DEMAND the removal of PELOSI from the Speaker Seat and FROM the HOUSE too!

    People should write these numbers down and use them frequently even if you don’t think your elected officials listen, they are require to note your comments for the permanent record in their caller database for anyone to see.

    Keep in mind: SILENCE = ACCEPTANCE

    1. You are totally right. You can also email your state reps. and as many people as can should do this everyday until they will begin to fight for us…..Ted Cruz & Josh Hawley are about the only ones willing to help shut this trash down. I email everyday to mine (Arkansas) plus support Cruz & Hawley. We MUST make our voices heard. Greene has filed impeachment against biden & Huckabee is talking about impeachment for harris. We need to help them that are willing to fight and vote out those that won’t………So please, use these #’s you have been given & look on the internet for your state reps. Lets stay on them until we are listened to and get our great country changed back the way it should be………God Bless America…………..

  5. LETS SEE I WAS A DEMOCRAT FROM WHEN I WAS TEN WITH A MOTHER FATHER FOUR SISTERS AND THREE BROTHER DEMOCRATS S,UDDENLY ONE DAY THE TRUTH
    HIT ME IN THE HEAD AND THE REALZATION THAT DEMOCTATS WERE JUST A BUNCH OF POWER HUNGRY,
    MONEY GRUBBING, PEOPLE HATING, SLIMY, CAOH YEENIVING.,CHEATS> IT WON”T BE LONG BEFORE AMERICA WILL BE BACK TO 1% OR LESS GDP.
    OH YES IT WAS CIVILITY THAT I WAS SUPPOSE TO BE ADDRESSING (LETS SEE IT WAS 1942 I WAS PLAYING
    WITH FALA AND FDR WAS ON THE PORCH AT THE HYDE PARK ESTATE FDR WAS TALKING WITH THE GARDNER)
    I WAS 10, NOW 80 YEARS LATER. CAN”T REMEMBER ANY CIVILITY (LOT OF NASTY NAME CALLING BY DEMS)

  6. the best response to demonic forces is prayer. a close second is to de-fund them. we know google, twitter and facebook are dnc stooges. stop using them. we can cut their business over 50% and start building up “fair and balanced” alternatives.

  7. The biggest and most powerful weapon I have is my faith in God. I will pray daily for justice for every American. However, I’m not sure that the democratic party is not a plague placed on this country by God. Maybe its because we have sat by and let the secular big mouths use our laws and judicial system to systematically remove any mention of Him. Maybe its because we sanction the sacrifice millions of the unborn babies on the alter of their mommas to that secular god “IT”S ALL ABOUT ME” Maybe the governance of this country has gotten so corrupt that God is just now taking a hand in it after all. God I hope not… there are still a bunch of God respecting folks living here. If He knows when a sparrow falls I know He will remember us. So keep your faith whether in the voting booths or the Christian Reprogramming Camp.

  8. Democrat’s have lied from day one . They had the most slaves in the south started the KKK to put fear in new persons of freedom now they want to feed us BS and think we really don’t see their hands on our necks boy they are in for a big supprise.

  9. I truly believe that most of the democrats in office are soulless subhuman creatures that have no conception of any life outside of their own. We used to call such people psychopaths.
