“Civility is the new censorship” (shut the heck up!)

That is what MD Conservative Action Network organizer Cathy Trauernicht told Rush Limbaugh on his radio program last Thursday—the censorship part, Rush translated that to the “shut the heck up” part.

The call began this way:

RUSH: This is Kathy in Potomac, Maryland. It’s great to have you here.

CALLER: Oh, thanks, Rush. Happy New Year, and happy belated birthday to you.

RUSH: Thank you very much.

CALLER: Before I get to the reason for my call I would like to make a very brief linguistic observation and that is that “civility” is the new word for “censorship.”

RUSH: I think you’re right. It’s a great point.

Rush concludes the conversation with this:

But I think her point about words is really great: “Civility” is the new “censorship.” “Civility” is the new word for “shut the heck up.”

I cannot do it justice so please read the next segment where Rush does one of his famous monologues on the theme Cathy provided—civility is the new censorship.

One need only be reminded, as Rush reminds us here, of that awful photograph of a Code Pinker putting her bloodied hands into Condoleezza Rice’s face in a Congressional hearing room to understand the hypocrisy of the Leftwing media.

So the next time you hear a Leftist whine about civility just bring that literally in-your-face photo to mind.
