Page 8 THE CALHOUN-LIBERTY JOURNAL NOVEMBER 7, 2018 COMMENTARY A RECAP OF RECENT OBSERVATIONS BY LATE NIGHT TV HOSTS. Late Night Laughs The importance of words WASHINGTON Have you no sense of decency, sir; at long last, have you no sense of decen cy? No, these words were not spoken by Republican leaders to a Republican president, whose rhetoric spewing strong-man leaders, past and pres ent. No, these were the words that struck a chord in the national consciousness in the 1950s during the McCarthy hearings when lawyer Joseph Welch asked them of the red-baiting, demagogic, dishonest Senator Joseph McCarthy, R-Wisc. Welch and McCarthy, one for good, one for ill, proved the importance of words. Words matter. For good or ill, words change minds. Words incite. Words can kill. Too many people are saying President Donald Trump is not responsible for the say his words were not responsible for the deadly attack on the Tree of Life syna gogue in Pittsburgh, or the multiple pipe dent has mocked and demonized. They say only the people who commit ted those heinous acts are responsible. But inciting is aiding and abetting, which in legal terms means a sharing of responsibil ity. Its clear that the two men now charged and held in custody carried out their evil deeds in a climate of hateful rhetoric ema nating from the top, from the White House, from the leader of the Western world. When the president gives a green light for people to punch out critics and says he will cover their legal bills, he is incit ing. When he calls refugees invaders, he is inciting. He incites when he employs the word nationalist in todays political climate, knowing many people link it with white and white supremacy. And when he de monizes the press as the enemy of the people, a phrase that has a long and sordid history closely as sociated with fascism, and yells, Lock her up about a political opponent, he is incit ing. Yes, fascism. If the word is disconcert ing, then think of it as strong man poli tics or authoritarian impulses, phrases that suit Trump and which he is proud to be associated with. His words are billboards on the way to fascism, and on the eve of the midterm elections, Trump isnt toning it down, hes toning it up, to use his words. James Vanderhei with Axios pressed the president in an interview about the height ened rhetoric, and Trump said the voters who attend his rallies have come to expect this level of political discourse, so he cant back off even if he wanted to. Its part of his winning schtick. So, whether by design or instinct, he has taken the country down an unprecedented presidential path. Nobody from the Republican leadership accompanied the president to Pittsburgh to pay homage to the Jewish community and the survivors of the synagogue attack. The trip was timed to accommodate Trumps funerals. He was asked not to come. To their credit, Republican leaders in this in stance voted with their feet when they re fused to serve as props welcome gesture, but it is not enough. Where are the Joseph Welches among them?
