Brummett and comments

This column was printed March 15, 2016, by the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette and the headline I used now seems prophetic, considering some of the comments. The comments are as they appeared on the website, absent the avatars, and with the relevant comments in bold red..

JOHN BRUMMETT:

Decency in short supply

A ball-capped and scraggly-bearded young white man shouts outside a Donald Trump rally in Cleveland that black protesters ought to go back to Africa.

Then Trump tells his large and rowdy crowd to fight back against disruptive protesters, rather than rise above them.

Thus we observe a state of American politics that has devolved from dysfunctional and angry to ugly and primitive and openly racist and violent.

Ours is a suddenly accelerated descent from decency. It compels the thoughtfully introspective among us to think and behave less rigidly, less predictably, less contemptuously, less derisively, less self-servingly, more tolerantly and more inclusively.

That is to say that the decent must unite for decency.

My thoughts turn to Dale Bumpers and, then, to John Kasich.

I have an essay in the current Talk Business and Politics magazine that remembers the transformative 1970s in Arkansas politics. The decade began with the from-nowhere gubernatorial candidacy of a young modernizing progressive named Bumpers.

The article recounts that leading liberals in Little Rock told Bumpers they wouldn’t support him in the multi-candidate preferential Democratic primary unless he assailed the regressive policies and machine politics of the former governor, Orval Faubus. And Bumpers steadfastly would not do it.

Instead he ran a strictly positive campaign about the nobility of public service. He squeezed, ever so narrowly, into a fateful runoff that changed Arkansas history.

On the morning after Bumpers made that runoff, a liberal lioness of Little Rock, who previously had rejected Bumpers’ positivity and supported someone else, showed up at Bumpers’ headquarters to say, OK, I’m with you now, we’ll do it your way.

That brings me to Kasich, which is not to intimate that he possesses the natural charismatic appeal, or the eloquence, or the progressivism, of the late Bumpers. But Kasich has run a decidedly positive and thus unique presidential campaign. He has displayed social tolerance and a compassionate manner that I recommend as newly essential in this incendiary time and context.

Kasich wants to cut taxes and suspend business regulation. Those are policies I vigorously oppose. But I can’t make myself mad at him for them.

He opposes a woman’s right to choose abortion, and, as president, could appoint a Supreme Court justice or three to imperil and perhaps even destroy that right. But I still can’t make myself mad at him.

That’s because he is tolerant, undogmatic and anecdotally engaging and empathic in his style and on many social issues.

On Saturday one of the Trump-obsessed cable television channels was showing, as usual, a hate-filled Trump rally. Suddenly it switched to a split screen to display Kasich hugging a man at a town-hall meeting–a man whose challenges as expressed in a question presumably had moved the candidate.

So the network switched full-screen to Kasich’s event. It was as if CBS had re-programmed from an Auburn-Alabama football game to a spelling bee.

Soon Kasich was talking about his grandfather getting cheated by coal companies and winding up with black lung disease, and about his own father carrying mail and cheering his own kids at high school football games and dance recitals.

Then Kasich went from preaching to meddling, as a good preacher always will. He declared that pundits need to come down from their easy and comfortable critique 50 rows up in the grandstand to join him in the actual arena.

Gov. Asa Hutchinson tells a story about Kasich that I can no longer resist sharing.

Shortly after his election, Asa attended a Republican governors’ conference and, as a newly elected state chief executive, was asked to introduce himself. With Kasich in the room as the GOP governor of Ohio, Asa said, among other things, that he would be confronted instantly at home with a quarter-million people in possession of new health insurance and a legislative contingent in his own party that wanted to take that insurance away.

On the next Sunday, Asa’s phone rang. Kasich was calling.

The Ohioan told the Arkansan that he’d just heard a good sermon that had turned his thoughts to Asa and those quarter-million people. Don’t let their insurance get taken away, Kasich implored.

Now the republic may be at such risk that the reasonable and fair-minded among us have no option but to put decency even ahead of partisanship, ideology and self-interest.

We need to rally to the kind of human being that Kasich seems to be.

I’m not so sure that, if given the power to pick the president from the remaining slate, I wouldn’t hang up between Kasich and Hillary Clinton.

She would save the Supreme Court. But he might help us restore an effective political center. And he might bolster American generosity and humanity, which, I fear, will be in deep disrepair after this election when all the haters and intolerants don’t get their way, as they won’t, as they mustn’t.

Kasich has as much chance as Brummett. He would have to win 112 percent of remaining delgates. The only haters are on the left side closing down free speech at polictical rallies and colleges. Calling people who support Trump hate-filled only shows a demagoguery.
Hillary Clinton telling MSNBC’s Chris Matthews the U.S. “didn’t lose a single person” in Libya.
But the Democratic presidential candidate appears to have forgotten about the Sept. 11, 2012 terrorist attacks that left dead Ambassador Chris Stevens, State Department information officer Sean Smith and former Navy SEALs Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty. Another lie, another failure as Secretary of Staate.

Namsaev says… March 15, 2016 at 8:07 a.m.

How Ironic John for you to blast the Trump supporter. And yet you do not address the lack of civility on the part of the demonstrators?

I don’t care for Donald Trump. I think he’s wrong for our country. I don’t agree with a lot he says. But to all those who went into the Trump meeting in Chicago with the intent to disrupt it and shut it down? You are wrong! Your right to shout at Trump everything you dislike about him ended at the door.
Trump paid to rent the venue. Many people drove for hours to get there. They were people who wanted to hear firsthand what Trump had to say. Most were supporters, some were still undecided. Those people were welcome.
But even if you were not a Trump supporter, and you were infuriated at what Trump says, you had options. You could sit quietly and listen. You could get up and leave. If you want to demonstrate against him, I don’t have a problem with that. But keep your demonstration OUTSIDE. If you want to stage your rally and get Anti-Trump advocates together. Go for it! But you have no right to disrupt a meeting where you didn’t pay for the venue. Would you like it if people came into your house then started trashing it, started shouting all kinds of things, and then started getting violent?
Freedom of speech comes with limitations. You are allowed to do and say whatever you want in public on public property – as long as it doesn’t cause damage to the property, cause harm to someone else, or violate federal, state, county, or city laws or regulations. You want civil rights? Then be Civil.

Let’s look at that First Amendment.

“Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.”

We have ‘demonstrations’ today more frequently than I can ever remember. But these demonstrations are not the kind the First Amendment authorizes– the right of the people peaceably to assemble. Are they peaceably assembling? What is peaceable about getting in anyone’s face and shouting at them? If you have a problem with what someone does or says and you believe they are wrong– petition the Government for a redress of grievances. The demonstrators weren’t petitioning the GOVERNMENT. They were disrupting a political rally. Oh and that petitioning doesn’t include storming government offices like was done in Wisconsin.

There is a lot of truth about how to handle people who aren’t acting civil, breaking laws, and are violating the first amendment. I’m not for cracking heads and putting people in the hospital who demonstrate PEACEFULLY. But for those who aren’t peacefully assembling to redress their grievances? LAW ENFORCEMENT should use whatever means is necessary to get their attention and educate them in the error of their ways.

Namsaev says… March 15, 2016 at 8:37 a.m.

Now let’s look at your opening paragraph. Do you really think you are not obvious in your leanings?

“A ball-capped and scraggly-bearded young white man shouts outside a Donald Trump rally in Cleveland that black protesters ought to go back to Africa.”

Only one person was shouting ‘go back to Africa’? And he was a young bearded white guy? But you made little mention of the appearance of the ‘black’ protesters. Were any of them young? Did any of them have beards? Were those beards scraggly?

I’m offended with the whole BLACK Lives Matter movement. They are so outraged every time a Law Enforcement Officer white, brown, or black, does something out of line or is perceived (by them) of doing something out of line, the block roads, bridges, and highways. And yet were is the outrage when black non LEOs cause the death of other blacks?

Where is YOUR outrage at BLM’s lack of action against blacks killing blacks? It could be he’s shouting at the blacks and their hypocrisy.

PopulistMom says… March 15, 2016 at 9:02 a.m.

Rightside,

If it is a brokered convention, Kasich has a chance. The Rubio and Bush people likely would support him. The problem is whether the Cruz people would support him. Asa would be an interesting compromise. If the Republicans want to win in November, they should pick Kasich who is the only Republican candidate who leads Hillary comfortably. Trump’s high negatives among hispanics, women and blacks spell disaster for the Republicans in November.

PopulistMom says… March 15, 2016 at 9:09 a.m.

Namsaev,

While I agree that the black lives matter people can be pests at some political events, would you go so far to say that people should not have protested at some of Hitler’s rallies? Both Hitler and Trump promoted the supremacy of white people. Trump is all in favor of granting citizenship to white people such as his first and third wife, but against people with brown skin. Perhaps, this explains why people are getting so unruly. If you think that people are getting violent now, just imagine what would happen if he became president and started rounding up the hispanics and excluded Muslims from visiting relatives and conducting business in this country. Things really could get out of hand then.

Nucdog110 says… March 15, 2016 at 9:35 a.m.

Shockingly, the 1st Amendment applies to protesters too. How inconvenient for Mr. Trump’s supporters. I watched this happen live on TV not the video loops played relentlessly played by the networks and cable. Fox lead with the caption: Protesters Clash with Police! No they didn’t. About an hour later Fox took that caption down because they did not have any proof or video to back it up and none of the other News outlets were reporting it that way. By the way, how is it that Fox is right, and all, every single one of the other news outlets in the world is lying. ( All of them? Really?) I saw, what looked to be mostly college kids chanting “feel the Bern”, surrounded by angry screaming pushing and shoving Trump supporters. White men, grown men who are husbands, fathers, sons, and brothers shoving and screaming at college girls, college kids. It got worse from there. Shameful.

Namsaev where were you in the 60’s? Protesting and the death of 4 Kent State students put an end to that war. Oh, and I’m a Vet who served during that war. A Democrat and a Patriot, and you said it couldn’t be done:)

It’s about time the Democrats stood up to the tyranny of the GOP and the religious right who want to rule the country with their personal religious beliefs that are not my religious beliefs. They want to shove their values down all our throats, demand that we live by their values and beliefs. Evangelicals have no constitutional right to force me or anyone else, to live our life according to THEIR religious beliefs. I have my own. Except for beheading dissenters how is that any different than ISIS?

I am a grown-up and I have free will. As I recall, trying to wrest free will from humanity got the Sun of the Morning thrown out of heaven by the ultimate Authority.

Jackabbott says… March 15, 2016 at 9:40 a.m.

How odd that a person in the media would not defend the 1st amendment.
Obama has been prez for 7+ years, so where is the decency or unity. The anger and resentment has been building for years going back to the drunk bush years but Obama made it even worse.
The race card is pulled out of the hat when things are not going the way the elite, rich campaign contributors, special interest groups, media want. Obama pulled the race card in 2008 against Bill Clinton, when his cronies put out the word that Bill was a racist, this was wrong, but media gave him a pass on it. So now, Obama outliers like Move–On and Black lives matter are trying the old Soviet style tactic of disrupting and preventing freedom of speech by people they oppose.
These groups have very little popular support. They are afraid of losing their grip on power. GOP turnout is up over 60%, Democrat down by 30%. 20,000 voters flipped in one day in Massachusetts from D to R to vote for Trump. Since November over 270.000 voters in Pennslyvania have flipped from R to D. The atrocious trade deals, political correctness, disruption of free speech and paid for corrupt pols ear is being torn down. The fawning and declining media can rant and edit it way to the trash yard and it will not change a thing.

mozarky2 says… March 15, 2016 at 9:42 a.m.

Protesting at Hitler’s rallies got you killed. PopMom, when you invoke Hitler, you’ve lost the argument. Hitler was a socialist. Trump is not. There is, however, a socialist running on the DEMOCRAT’s side. Well, two, actually, whose activists have disrupted and shut down Trump events in true Hitlerian fashion.

drs01 says… March 15, 2016 at 10:02 a.m.

Brummett – Didn’t one Hilliary Rodham (Clinton -finally) DISRUPT a Tom McRae press conference in the Capital rotunda? McRae had the gall to run against hubby Bill.
This was before instant cable news, the internet and even real media journalist were there to cover the story. The so called media then did little to criticize Clinton for her outbursts. I guess nothing has changed. McRae shouldn’t have run against Bill or made a speech at the Capital. And Trump shouldn’t be allowed to do the same thanks to being demonized by this generation of so called journalist. Nothing has changed in politics.

Johnbrummett says… March 15, 2016 at 10:08 a.m.

dr: i criticized her. but the point is that mcrae didn’t ask his people to attack her.

3WorldState1 says… March 15, 2016 at 10:27 a.m.

This country is dumber and more racist than most thought. That is how BO has helped, not made it worse. It is a bright light on the remnants from the ultimate sin of our country…for all to behold. It’s good to look in the mirror every now and again.
NEVER underestimate the power of very stupid people in large numbers. Speaking of…that’s a great bumper sticker for the GOP.

GrimReaper says… March 15, 2016 at 11:20 a.m.

From the perspective of the Democrat propaganda apparatus all problems are the fault of some one else. And, yes, our society has become progressively dumber and dumber over the last quarter century. How else could one explain the election of Obama and the viable candidacy of HRC today!

mozarky2 says… March 15, 2016 at 11:49 a.m.

Brummett would love to see a squish like GHWB, Dole, McQueeg, or Romney. That’s the only way Hillary can win. Kasich is unelectable.
Hillary is generating zero excitement. She’s unelectable, too.

3WorldState1 says… March 15, 2016 at 12:08 p.m.

From where our country was to where we are at now, with unprecedented headwinds (we know what those are), BO ‘s presidency has been very good. Maybe even great when all said and done. If he was a republican they would be looking for a mtn to place his head. Put more resources than any president on the Mexican border. Deported more illegal immigrants than any president ever. Most job gains than any president. Still 5 million jobs open. Inflation super low, Gas super low, unemployment rate cut in half (AR’s unemployment at a 16 year low). And people can still pray and gun rights have been loosened. You can go on and on.
No presidency is perfect, far from it, but considering. I think pretty good. And he is presidential. Something only one GOP candidate has any of. And he doesn’t have a chance in hell.
So, yes, our country is getting dumber.

mrcharles says… March 15, 2016 at 12:10 p.m.

Hey, Bull Malarkey, GHWB, Dole and McCain served our country. While they may have fallen on their head to cause them to think thoughts of repugnants, they dang sure did their vacation tours of the world , unlike many here who spout. Of course they were highly touted by repugnant ILKS at the time.

I think the squish is a disrespect and you should know better.

From the perspective of the repugnant propaganda Fox/ADG apparatus all problems are the fault of some one else. And, yes, our society has become progressively dumber and dumber over the last quarter century. How else could one explain the election of W [ it was as if they planned the great failures they were such failures] , the nomination of that half term governor who had socialist wealth redistribution in Alaska [ now the residents are squirming about where is my hand out- certainly a ironic conservative whining going on there] and the viable candidacy of Trump/Cruz today!

PopulistMom says… March 15, 2016 at 12:19 p.m.

Mozarky,

Hitler only was able to kill people after he came to power. He was an authoritarian fascist–not a socialist. Let’s see, Trump has failed to disavow the klan and has called for rounding up hispanics and sending them home. (Of course, his first wife and his current Melania are entitled to stay, because they are white.) He also wants a religious litmus test to get into this country. Trump basically is blaming all of our problems on minorities and suggesting that America will be great again if we can be whiter. How is this any different from Hitler suggesting that Germany’s path to greatness depended on getting rid of the Jews and other minorities?

mozarky2 says… March 15, 2016 at 12:34 p.m.

Oh, sorry, PopMom, I’d forgotten Hitler headed up the National Fascist Party…

PopulistMom says… March 15, 2016 at 12:36 p.m.

Mozarky,

You should know that labels are not always accurate.

ARMNAR says… March 15, 2016 at 12:46 p.m.

Mozarky should, but mozarky doesn’t.

nwar says… March 15, 2016 at 12:49 p.m.

If the only way you can defend the actions of Trump and his racist supporters is to make up lies about the “other side”, that’s pretty lame. Oh and Rightside, if Hilary is personally responsible for the death of 4 Americans in Benghazi, then who is responsible for all the deaths that took place at embassies under the previous Administration? Powell? Rice? Cheney? And I also wonder how some of the Trump defenders would react if a nearly all black police force routinely shot and killed unarmed mouthy whites? Or even the well-armed Cliven Bundy idiots?

GrimReaper says… March 15, 2016 at 1:12 p.m.

I present 3World and PopMom as irrefutable confirmation of my earlier post. Interesting how Leftist love to cherry pick stats, some of which from the government are in fact rigged and bogus, and then misattribute the underlying causation of such to suit their political dogma.

GrimReaper says… March 15, 2016 at 1:19 p.m.

Oh! And add nwar to the list. I’ve left Charlie off because his posts are so incoherent no one can make sense of them anyway.

mozarky2 says… March 15, 2016 at 1:28 p.m.

Very well aware, PopMom. The term “liberal” comes to mind…and, yes, Hitler was a socialist.

mrcharles says… March 15, 2016 at 2:07 p.m.

Elvis didnt do no drugs.

Hitler was baptised and confirmed in the Roman Catholic , so he is a Catholic. Also he was not ever even once ex-communicated by the Vatican , so I would say he was more Catholic than socialist. Goebbels was ex-communicated due to his marrying a protestant, which served him right.

Of course I a Leftist cherry picked my facts unlike pious people who cherry picked the rigged and/or bogus [ note the difference of the “or”] some say out right lies of the W administration and their operation ignore on terrorism.

Now a man named Ananias, together with his wife Sapphira, also sold a piece of property, and the Lord thy G-d zapped them for not being good socialist. Just sayin you anti-socialist.

I do hope Trump ignores those there evangelicals who bad mouth him. He being a business man and such , I expect repugnants to band together and between the evangelicals and business, jobs will be picked. Also I hear there is a black neurosurgeon who supports him in ordering the grand canyon to be 6000 years old.

mozarky2 says… March 15, 2016 at 2:10 p.m.

PopMom, has Obama disavowed Bill Ayers? Reverend Wright? Black Lives Matter? His urging his supporters to “get in their faces”? His statement ” If they bring a knife to fight, we bring a gun”! ?
Well?

TimberTopper says… March 15, 2016 at 2:57 p.m.

MOZ, spend some time reading and studying about the Nazi Party in Germany. The things you have said in your comments here make you sound like an uneducated fool. Though the official party name had the word Socialist in it, the party itself was the ultra conservative party in Germany at that time. If you’d spend some time trying to understand and learn, rather than trying to type BS you might come off at least with some sense of being knowledgeable about a subject. This is one of our great problems. Too many like you thinking that dumb and loud makes it right! Well it don’t!

mozarky2 says… March 15, 2016 at 3:11 p.m.

TT, I ‘ve forgotten more about the National SOCIALIST Party than you’ve ever known! Maybe you should study your history a little more carefully.

mrcharles says… March 15, 2016 at 4:06 p.m.

I dedicate this to Frau Bruner.

There is a rumor that Trump and his black shirts at his next Nuremberg rally will have a girl scout choir sing his favorite marching song, perhaps bull malarkey you too enjoy the cadence of this little diddy:

Die Fahne hoch! Die Reihen fest geschlossen!
SA marschiert mit ruhig festem Schritt.
Kam’raden, die Rotfront und Reaktion erschossen,
Marschier’n im Geist in unser’n Reihen mit.
Kam’raden, die Rotfront und Reaktion erschossen,

Die Straße frei den braunen Batallionen.
Die Straße frei dem Sturmabteilungsmann!
Es schau’n aufs Hakenkreuz voll Hoffnung schon Millionen.
Der Tag für Freiheit und für Brot bricht an!
Es schau’n aufs Hakenkreuz voll Hoffnung schon Millionen.
Der Tag für Freiheit und für Brot bricht an!

Zum letzten Mal wird Sturmalarm geblasen!
Zum Kampfe steh’n wir alle schon bereit!
Schon flattern Hitlerfahnen über allen Straßen.
Die Knechtschaft dauert nur noch kurze Zeit!
Schon flattern Hitlerfahnen über allen Straßen.
Die Knechtschaft dauert nur noch kurze Zeit!

Die Fahne hoch! Die Reihen fest geschlossen!

Slak says… March 15, 2016 at 4:18 p.m.

Catholics are socialists, mrcharles. See commie Jesus for confirmation. See South America for examples of radical Catholic socialism sparking revolution. See the German Pope as Hitler’s socialist legacy.
See?

mozarky2 says… March 15, 2016 at 4:31 p.m.

Well, mrcharles, you certainly seem to have that “diddy” down pat…practice it much? I’ve never heard of it.

Pobucker says… March 15, 2016 at 4:35 p.m.

Don’t fall for commie Jesus apocryphallia, mrcharles. Those socialist bastards murdered a loving couple and had the gall to blame it on the One True god.
God is not a socialist. He anoints some to be kings, all the rest are anointed to serve.
To be sure, it was the commie Jesus followers who destroyed Rome, setting human civilization back 500 years. Blame them for us not having limitless free energy, warp drive, replicators and transporters in our own time.

3WorldState1 says… March 15, 2016 at 5:22 p.m.

I know. Nothing is as it seems. I guess all the good things Reagen did too were made up government BS? Lame Stream media? Use the heavy duty foil. It will last longer.

mrcharles says… March 15, 2016 at 6:23 p.m.

Po, Slak accuses you of a chicken thief but we both know chickens dont make good sacrifices but good fried chicken. Though you are wise to the world I have to disagree about Jesus being a commie, remember Comrade Karl was not yet born- -Oh Uncle Joe reminds me Jesus can see the future, some kinda quantum mechanics stuff that I refuse to understand. I know Ezekiel had one of those UFO’s and ate grain out of a pyramid. I would remind you Rome was destroyed cause roman numerals were too cumbersome. Anway I am about to sacrifice a three-year-old heifer, a three-year-old female goat, a three-year-old ram, a turtledove, and a young pigeon ,but am all out of 3 year old rams, do you have one I could borrow?” Of course you know the proper method is to cut all in half down the middle and place each piece opposite the other; but of course we don’t cut the birds in two so I can give them to you. Once all this is done you are invited with other primates to walk down the middle, sometimes the Most High joins in , to celebrate our venerated secret rituals , but you got to walk right down the middle so learning geometry is helpful .

Slak, I know by revelation that the anti nazi pope died [ mysteriously, but those divines have a lot of mysteries anyway] and his anti friend then became pope who has been accused of supporting nazzzzis . And Slak , I have been telling you and telling you you cant trust those brutish South Americans but glad to hear of your chastisement of them. We do play some good football though. while I believe you are wrong about po being a chicken their, not sure about him being a true believer. If I become a non radical catholic , do I have to set next to protestants? And finally our fore founders were revolutionaries, so who granted them a pardon?

Bull malarkey I would practice it but I believe only English should be taught in America except in consecrated universities. I do like the ditty, and especially the cadence [ not as much as the International “, and I can hum it to the tune of Do wah diddy while marching in sole unison . It is like the song Chop suey when I was young , sounded good but had no idea what words were. Try it I think you would like it.

mozarky2 says… March 15, 2016 at 6:50 p.m.

WOW! Micro Rubio getting schlonged by Trump in Florida!

Nodmcm says… March 15, 2016 at 7 p.m.

mozark: So you think the names political groups give themselves have meaning? OK, so how about the People’s Republic of China, once called “Red China” by American detractors? They must be Republicans, right, because “Republic” is right there in their name? Or how about Kim Jong Un’s North Korea, formally named the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea? They must be democratic and Republican, right, because their name couldn’t be wrong, could it?

mozarky2 says… March 15, 2016 at 7:08 p.m.
