She Tweeted this about civility.

There you have it. Civility is racist. The Left no longer needs to be civil.
Except this makes no sense.
I, not being a rich Progressive TV writer in NYC, thought it was the KKK that was uncivil when they burned crosses on lawns, bombed churches, and lynched people.
I thought it was the racist police under leadership like Bull Connor who were uncivil when they sprayed peaceful marchers with fire hoses and set police dogs on them.
I thought the assassinations of Medgar Evers and Martin Luther King, Jr. were uncivil.
I thought that the Montgomery bus boycott and peaceful marches were civil.
I guess I was wrong.
I guess that Progressives fighting Republicans with the tactics of the KKK – making people fear for their lives, threatening bombings, shootings, burning stuff on lawns – is civil.
But I guess since civility is racist, I’m a bigot for thinking “maybe threatening to kill a Congressman and his children is a bad idea.”
The new rules are changing fast.
You might think that stopping some Progressives form curb stomping some old man in a MAGA hat makes you a hero. Unfortunately, that type of civil behavior is going to get you called a “Hitler Nazi white supremacist Klansman” on MSNBC.
