As someone who personally has been badgered & harassed for my lack of "civility", I find it mildly amusing when I hear the Democratic Elitest and the Corpocracy Owned Republicans both calling for "Civility" from the people they have been oppressing with their corruption, machinations and duplicity.
As Joan Hunter Iovino wrote,
"When you tell people to show "civility" to authorities and those with exceptional power and privilege, you neglect to recognize that both sides are not equivalent to one another. One is the oppressor and one is the oppressed. These people have used their power to commit acts of violence against the poor, people of color, immigrants, and women. But heaven forbid we are rude to them when they walk among us."
Voter "civility" gave us the Bushes and Trump. Corporately owned MSM "civility" gave us the on-going atrocities committed by Israel with nary a word of censure. Democratic Elitist/Corporate Republican "civility" gave us mass shootings and unjust incarcerations of POC and their babies.
IMO, we need less Nancy "Unacceptable" Pelosi-ish and Chuckie "Show respect" Schumer-ish "civility" and more Maxine "Give'em hell!" Waters-ish and Alexandria "No. Matter. What." Ocasio-Cortez-ish "If America don't come around, we're gonna' burn it down!" (with nods to H. Rap Brown).
No bans. No walls. No fences. No chains. No justice — no peace.
— Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez
So I say, "Fuck your civility!"
People are dying every fucking day because of your "civility".
If, in your mind, perceived "rudeness" is more important than standing up for what is right and using calls for "civility" as a weapon to oppress is more okay than calling people & governments out for their actions then...
YOU ARE THE FUCKING PROBLEM!
