X-Post: Raaaaacist Inciiiiivility (and more of Dr Douglas' guilt by association thinkin')

Saturday, April 16, 2011, 11:15 PM - American Power: Even More Progressive Civility!: "Leftists truly are the biggest racists, just ask REPSAC = CASPER = RACIST."

Saturday, April 16, 2011, 9:30 PM - American Power: More Progressive Civility: "Friends of REPSAC = CASPER, no doubt."

No explanation, no link to any "raaaaacist" or "inciiiiivil" thing I've ever said or done in either post... Just Donalde Douglas once (or twice) again blowing smoke, playing at guilt by association ("If that guy who said something racially offensive is a progressive, and repsac3 is a progressive, that clearly proves..." It's just that easy to accuse folks, when you're Donald Douglas.) and hoping someone will actually pay attention to him. Sad.

It occurs to me that he may've been pissed that I tweeted about a fellow Orange County Republican and Tea Party activist earlier on April 16th: Racist Orange County Republican Email: President Obama and His Parents Are Apes - Orange County News. Maybe (employing that same guilt by association thinking he's famous for) Donalde thought I was tweeting about him, and thus lashed out... I mean, it's not as though he's never said anything racially offensive about black people or otherwise been bigoted toward those with whom he doesn't agree politically, is it?

One clue about civility, Donald... Whatever one thinks about the idea of talking more respectfully (even to those with whom one disagrees), it isn't about judging the behaviors of others... It's about doing the right thing, oneself. There will always be bigots and other incivil people. It shouldn't be about finding examples of people on "the other side" acting uncivilized or bigoted and trying to tar everyone else on that side with the bad behavior of the few... If ya ask me, the question one should ask oneself is whether one wishes to be counted among the uncivilized, oneself. While you can't control "them," you can choose to control yourself... ...or choose not to, I guess...

I'm just sayin'...
