It’s almost hard to recall how the left howled about “civility” in the wake of the Tucson shooting horror. But that was then, and the standards the left sets for the right is one it hardly adheres to. We had Vice President Joe Biden’s now-denied comments casting Republicans in the role of “terrorists.” And then the hometown newspaper for liberal elites got into the act…
Another conservative reader observed, “Remember how everyone wanted to tone down the rhetoric and use more civilized language. Now, we’re calling people terrorist and criminals. I guess ‘terrorist’ and ‘jihadist’ are only politically incorrect when they’re used to refer to actual terrorists and jihadists.”
Never let a crisis (or a mass-shooting) go to waste.
