Thoughts on “Respectful Disagreements”

So I saw this story today.

Volunteers at the Warren County Democratic headquarters, just north of Cincinnati, were shocked and disappointed by a political prank unloaded on them early Tuesday morning – someone dumped a pile of horse manure in the parking lot of the headquarters building on US 42, just north of Lebanon.

Now I laughed and chuckled, I would have still laughed if someone had done it to a Republican headquarters.  What got me thinking though was the following statement from the County Democratic Chair.

Goldenfield goes on to say, “It’s really unfortunate that people can’t have respectful disagreements… We’re not going to be discouraged by it. It’s just very disappointing. It will probably motivate our people even more but it’s also a very disrespectful thing to do.”

Respectful disagreements, lets talk about this word respectful.  Those on your side of the debate have been nothing but rude, bigoted, and down right evil.  How evil?

A 16-year-old high school student says she was mocked by her own teacher after she arrived to class wearing a t-shirt supporting GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney.

"Then a whole bunch of kids came in and a [teacher’s assistant] took a marker and pretended to draw on my shirt and then told me to take off my shirt," she said.

"People were telling me not to come to school, saying they were going to hit me and stuff like that," the teen said, referring to threats posted by fellow-students on her Facebook page in response to her political attire.

Have no fear for the teacher though because the school districts response?

The teacher who started the firestorm by criticizing Pawlucy’s Romney-Ryan tee-shirt is still out of school, pending an administrative hearing.

Now supposedly the union isn’t supporting the teacher but I think that’s mainly because it’s obvious how bad the teacher stepped in it in this instance.  Moving forward though we have the bus driver who informed a young man that his mother should have aborted him.

But when students on the bus started Romney chants this week, the driver started a political conversation with the boy, prompting him to point out that Obama is pro-choice, according to conservative blog Freedom Eden. The students attend a local Catholic school.

The driver allegedly retorted, "Maybe your mom should have chosen abortion for you."

Yup, that’s a real civilized respectful disagreement right there.  Especially since this man felt he needed to attack a 12 year old child for his families political views.  Bummer the bigot couldn’t pick on someone his own size.

But wait, there’s more!  This call for respectful disagreement is also coming from the same party who is so tied into the unions they conscript their support from union membership.

How is that for a respectful disagreement?  Force support for your party by holding a person hostage by keeping them from feeding themselves or their family by tacking on a fine.  Now some may claim that you don’t have to join the union.  That only holds true if you’re in a right to work state.  You could always go find a job elsewhere that doesn’t have a union, but often the union will do everything to get a monopoly on the industry to force membership.

Moving even further forward, lets do a quick look back into history shall we?

A 24-year-old arrested this morning on suspicion of smashing 11 windows at Colorado Democratic Party headquarters tried to conceal his identity while allegedly committing the crime, according to police descriptions.

While Schwenkler does not appear in the state’s voter registration database, a person by that name in November 2008 received $500 from a political 527 committee called Colorado Citizens Coalition for "communications," according to campaign finance disclosures.

The accountant for the 527 appears to be the same woman who handles the books for many other Democratic-leaning political committees.

So they did this to themselves, which works well when you can control the narrative and say it was the other side.  It fails when you’re minions get caught.  Now there was a window that recently broke in Alabama and again the Dems ran off claiming people were shooting at them, mainly the Republicans and independents that can’t have a respectful disagreement.  Lets look at what really happened.

Police say that a window that shattered at Mobile County Democratic Party headquarters in downtown may have done so as result of previous damage, Cpl. Christopher Levy, Mobile police spokesman, said today.

All the left knows how to do is claim “victim status”.  Lets also not forget the fact that the left is considerably more violent than the right as well

Finally lets examine two last items.  First up from OldNFO is the following:

According to the Pentagon, requests for military absentee ballots is down 92% from 2008!!!

At the same time I also had this bit of information come across the radar from Sebastian.

However, now there are reports that not only is the robocalling giving out false dates to votes, but an Obama door-to-door campaign targeting seniors in a county that went Republican is also giving out the false dates, I’m not so sure this is an accident.

Once is happenstance, twice is coincidence, three or more times is enemy action.  Well bad news for the opposition, I don’t believe in coincidence.  Even then the robocalls and door to door mistakes are truly two separate incidents for a count of three.  It is well known and common knowledge the date of the election and informing people in mass of a incorrect date, especially in a county likely to vote against you is just wrong, deceitful, and again not an example of someone engaging in a “respectful disagreement”.  Yeah, with regards to her use of the word respectful…

Then again, a party whose membership consists of people using the power of the state to rob from others to give to themselves wouldn’t really understand respect if it walked up and slapped them in the face.  Respectful would be letting people keep what they had earned.

Now why would I bring this up, while I am currently doing my best to be respectful to those of differing opinions?  Their right to have me remain respectful ends when they’re no longer respectful to me.  Even more than that, they have no right to my respect when they are taking my property and work for their own because honestly, where’s the respect in that?
