June 14, 2017 - accent chair
A few new examples of incivility currently include:
• Montana U.S. Rep.-elect Greg Gianforte pleaded guilty to assaulting a contributor after a contributor asked him a doubt about a Congressional Budget Office’s research of a health caring bill. Gianforte “body-slammed” a contributor to a floor, punched him and pennyless his glasses. And afterwards he walked out a door.
• Delta Air Lines and Bank of America have pulled their sponsorship of New York Shakespeare in a Park’s prolongation of “Julius Caesar,” that depicts a assassination of Caesar, expel as a businessman with blond hair and his mother with a Slavic accent. The entertainment was an apparent shot during Trump. And while it is loyal that a whole indicate of “Julius Caesar” is that assassination doesn’t compensate off, a entertainment of an assassination of a impression dressed as a boss of a United States in a heart of Manhattan crosses a line.
• Here in Utah we saw a claimant for chair of a Democratic Party, Rob Miller, chased out of a townhall by protesters dissapoint about accusations of passionate nuisance opposite him. Every time Miller attempted to speak, some-more than half a assembly stood adult and incited their behind on him. Protesters also blocked a aisles and perspective of others in a assembly who were perplexing to ask Miller questions.
• Rep. Chris Stewart hosted a townhall in Mar where assembly members aloud booed and shouted such things as “Do your job,” “Liar” and “Who are we in bed with?”
• Former authority of a Utah Republican Party, James Evans, labeled rough protests during a Rep. Jason Chaffetz townhall as “thuggish behavior” and claimed “intimidation and violence” had occurred.
Since when is it OK to brag and harass in a name of interlude bullying and harassment? Affairs of respect weren’t tolerated most by a American people after Hamilton’s death. What will it take for Americans currently to mount adult and contend no more?
As Miranda wrote for Burr’s impression in Hamilton: “I am a one thing in life we can control. we am inimitable. we am an original.”
Burr killed Hamilton over politics. We can be better.
