As many of my friends know, I continually wage an internal war between my wish to be thoughtful and civil in my discourse and to be vulgar and nasty, the latter tactic meant to convey the disrespect toward my target. Of course, many disagree with the bad-mannered approach, saying that it’s counterproductive.
But is it?

Over the past few weeks, my readers may have noticed my language has become more salty. Using “fuck” and “shit,” or similar words are not cursing, by the way. I don’t really owe anyone an explanation or an apology for such language, but my using those words conveys a message I’d like people to understand.
Civil discourse would abhor the disrespect conveyed in the use of those words. But, in relation to politicians — especially Republicans — my using those words is a sign of disrespect.

Even those with whom I had gotten along before and had cordial relationships no longer have my respect and therefore no longer deserve the language of respect.

Only a hermit could have avoided the news coverage avalanche of the war of words between the
The war started with a right-wing based rally in Alabama tweet demanding that players who protested (by taking a knee or sitting) during the National Anthem be fired. As the Washington Post reported, “After making a thinly veiled allusion to former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick, who sparked a national debate by taking a knee before August 2016 preseason games to protest police violence against minorities, Trump called on NFL coaches to get the ‘son of a bitch’ players off the field if they continued to kneel. The president repeated his call with no less intensity on Twitter on Saturday and Sunday morning.”
