This is what leftists call “tolerance” and “civility.” Responding to comments Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal made regarding the father of the Oregon shooter, Esquire’s Charles P. Pierce begged someone to punch Jindal in the groin.
“Now, let’s get really politically incorrect here and talk specifically about this horror in Oregon. This killer’s father is now lecturing us on the need for gun control and he says he has no idea how or where his son got the guns,” Jindal said. “Of course he doesn’t know. You know why he doesn’t know? Because he is not, and has never been in his son’s life. He’s a complete failure as a father, he should be embarrassed to even show his face in public. He’s the problem here. He brags that he has never held a gun in his life and that he had no idea that his son had any guns. Why didn’t he know? Because he failed to raise his son. He should be ashamed of himself, and he owes us all an apology.”
This prompted Pierce to call Jindal a “walking asterisk in the presidential contest” and a “charlatan.” He then added:
“This’ll be good for at least a three-point bump in the next poll of Iowa Republicans. However, would I be uncivil if I were to suggest that somebody punch this man right in his dick?”

Short answer: Yes.
And if anyone ever suggested doing this to any Democrat, the so-called “mainstream media” would be apoplectic with outrage. But it’s okay to advocate violence against a Republican.

Let this be an object lesson: Liberalism, at its core, is an ideology of rage and hate. And liberals prove it every single day. It’s enough to make one think they really do want a second, bloody civil war in America.
