Response to babylonsister (Original post)

14. The Republicans change the goal posts when people are civil.

When progressives stand silently and civilly with signs, the Republicans yell, "Get a job!"

And what could possibly be more civil than taking a knee?

But it's fine for them to threaten people online? To intimidate peaceful protesters by making a big show of being armed? To drive into peaceful protesters? To massacre journalists? To steal thousands of children? Are these things really equivalent to yelling Shame?

My own local paper has run several op-eds on the need for civility, but I'm sure the editors wouldn't be calling for civility if it were their own children being stolen. I'm with Maxine: the perpetrators--the architects and enforcers of this administration's monstrous policies--should be shamed wherever they go.
