A Shorter For Cons
Liberal/Democrat/Someone slightly left-of-center (hell, even someone reasonable that’s slightly right-of-center): “We need to tamp down the militaristic, violent rhetoric and bring civility back into our political discourse.”
TPer/Crazy Conservative: “You might be right, but if you don’t stop saying it, you commie, I’m gonna kill you.”
The typical reaction from the right when their militaristic, violent rhetoric is pointed out to them is not introspection, reflection or even the slightest hint of admission that maybe everyone telling them to tone it the fuck down may be right. No, its a doubling down, a “reloading,” if you will, of the same tired, violent gun-fetishing rhetoric they’ve been spewing for 30 years, and to crawl up on a cross.
