Flashback: Wasserman Schultz Says Country Needs a “New Tone of Civility in Public Discourse” (Video)

On January 11, 2011 Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz told radio host Tavis Smiley,
“Now is the time for the president to have a conversation about civility.”

But that was after democrats were trying to blame the shooting of Gabby Giffords by a left-wing Bush-hating lunatic on Republicans and the tea party.

The far left Florida representative even released a statement demanding a new tone of civility in public discourse.
Wink News reported:

Florida Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz says the shooting of Arizona Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords is a reminder that the country must remain vigilant in pursuing the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr.’s teachings of nonviolence.

The two Democratic House members are friends. Giffords and 18 others were shot Jan. 8 when a gunman opened fire at a meet-and-greet outside a supermarket in Tucson, Ariz. Six people died.

In a statement Monday, Wasserman Schultz says the shooting has reminded her that “words have the power to hurt and to heal.” She says the country needs “a new tone of civility in our public discourse.”
