The Latest Conservative Plea For Comity

by tristero

Following up on Digby's post below, I'd like to remind everyone of a few more examples of the non-condescending, non vitriolic ways conservatives have comported themselves in the recent past.

A button from the 2008 campaign:

A bumper sticker that's been around for quite a while:

Here's Steve Dunleavy in the New York Post on October 2, 2001
It is amazing how liberals, whom I regard as traitors in this time of crisis, like to quote the Constitution.
That's right: he said that within weeks of 9/11. Oh, how the nation came together back then to defeat a common enemy! Remember this moving call for unity from two of America's most influential theologians?
JERRY FALWELL: I really believe that the pagans, and the abortionists, and the feminists, and the gays and the lesbians who are actively trying to make that an alternative lifestyle, the ACLU, People For the American Way, all of them who have tried to secularize America. I point the finger in their face and say 'you helped this happen'.

PAT ROBERTSON: Well, I totally concur,
And don't kid yourself and say that even by 9/11, these guys didn't have any real influence. Your pastor, priest, rabbi, etc. talk to the president of the United States on a regular basis? Thought not. But these guys did, both before and after this disgraceful episode.

I'll conclude with this special message to Gerard Alexander whom Digby also linked to below:
I would like to take you seriously but to do so would affront your intelligence.
I know what you're thinking, Mr. Alexander: Just like a liberal to behave in such a thoroughly condescending manner.
