Tea Party leaders issued a response to controversial remarks made by Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) over the weekend. According to party leaders, “it’s time for a new-NEW era of civility.”
“We’ve had Democrats calling American citizens ‘terrorists’ and ‘hostage takers,’ and now an elected Democratic representative says that we can ‘go straight to hell,’” Mark Meckler and Jenny Beth Martin leaders of the Tea Party Patriots said in a statement.
The president and all leaders of the Democratic Party, who have called for civility in the past, are neglecting to censure their own. Is civility only required from their opponents?
