Default THE LEFT'S OBSESSION WITH OBSCENITY

http://www.frontpagemag.com/fpm/2670...ty-mark-tapson

In my opinion it's a lack of respect for G-d and themselves. That is a large component of the left's obsession with obscenity. That's not mentioned in the article. I particularly like the following quote, which is at the end of the article. It matches what many leftists in the AO love to do, which is to shut down opinions that they don't agree with.

Quote:
After the recent attempted assassination of Republican congressmen, the cry has gone up among decent people across the country for greater civility and mutual respect in our political discourse. Unfortunately thatís not going to happen because, as their obsession with obscenity demonstrates, leftists donít value decency, civility or respectful dialogue; their aim is to derail the conversation altogether. And thatís a damned shame.
Here are some other quotes from the article:

Quote:
...The answer is that profanity is a useful substitute for discourse when one is losing a debate and needs to trump reason with passionate intensity in order to win. That is what is happening in the current degraded state of our national political conversation.
Quote:
Iím talking about an entire political party which gleefully embraces swearing in speeches and protests, on social media and clothing slogans, in news media and entertainment. Iím talking about public figures from entertainers to talk show hosts to politicians intentionally and unapologetically hurling obscenities.

It should come as no surprise that that political party is the Democratic Party, which is in the grip of the far left, and that those public figures are invariably so-called Progressives.
Quote:
There is no end to the examples I could list. The evidence is abundantly clear: the left loves vulgarity. Whatís that all about?....
Swearing sends a thrill up the leftís collective leg because Marxists and their inheritors, Progressives, consider decency to be a contemptable bourgeois value. Even though leftists control the culture, they still think of themselves as counterculture revolutionaries bucking the Establishment, like teenagers rebelling against their parents.
This last quote explains leftists perfectly in my opinion.

If "The Left" and "The Right" had a basketball game, who would win?

you literally watched POTUS say "they can go **** themselves" and "grab 'em by the pussy" and you still voted for him. Jury's still out if you people voted for him because of it.

The article exempts him as not being a typical Republican.
