A woman was suspended from using Twitter because she said a man is not a woman. This has Tony Katz wondering what exactly the purpose of Twitter’s action really is? Stoping “hate” or censoring speech? This leads to a personal conversation of depression and suicidal thoughts.
General Motors is reducing their workforce by 15%. Why? The times are changing, and no one wants cars anymore. Sutdents in Wisconsin took a photo giving the Nazi salute. They’re not Nazis, however. They’re just morons, and this photo will haunt them forever.
Ohio Governor John Kasich is seriously considering running for the presidential nomination against President Trump.
Since the shooting of Rep. Gabrielle Giffords (D-AZ), much ado has been made of the new tone in America. The concept of civility – how to treat one another, how to talk to one another. How two people can disagree, but not be disagreeable.
But what has come of that moment…that “teachable” moment.
First, before President Obama mentioned the words, there were the lies of Paul Krugman of the New York Times and Dana Milbank of the Washington Post, claiming that the Tea Party is the violent group, while violently lying about the Tea Party. Then, there was the Sadie Hawkins dance known as the State Of The Union, where Democrats like former Speaker Nancy Pelosi refused to sit next to a Republican.
It would be comical if it weren’t so serious. No one would believe that everyone on one side of an issue were just choir boys. Certainly, I would never claim that of the Tea Party, nor of the anti-union groups that have been protesting. But what we are seeing from pro-union forces, and anti-Tea Party thugs, is a repeated record of violent behavior and assaults. These are not isolated incidents. They are interconnected.
So, The Conversation Is: When does the violence end? And will the left ever recognize their role in it?
