Shapiro: We Have to Stop Treating Liberal Groups with Civility
When Editor-At-Large of Breitbart News, Ben Shapiro, shows up on Glenn Beck's radio program to promote his new book, "Bullies: How the Left's Culture of Fear and Intimidation Silences Americans," what do you think they talk about?
Why, the need for "civility" of course!
Shapiro claimed that groups like Media Matters colluded with the White House in weekly meetings where they plotted strategy on how to destroy Beck by monitoring his program in order to find clips they could take out of context and then use to target his advertisers and ultimately drive him off the air.
"These are not pro-First Amendment people," said Shapiro. "These are not pro-free speech people. These are not pro-civility people. They're not civil and we have to stop treating them as though civility is going to win the day ... The moral high ground doesn't do us a lot of good when we're fighting people who are absolute thugs."
Shapiro justified his call to stop being civil with liberals on the grounds that there is some of a "Geneva Convention with regard to civility" whereby only those who abide by the convention deserve its protections. And since liberals basically operate like terrorists, they are not entitled to the convention's guarantees of civility; an idea that Beck thought was absolutely "profound":
Again, this was Glenn Beck and the Editor-At-Large of Breitbart News claiming that other people are uncivil and therefore undeserving of being treated with civility.
