Something that I've been wondering, and sense asking it in other places I've gotten similar results. Why is it we don't see any republicans talking about our we need to scale back on our current rhetoric and political culture? Representative Flake is the first I can remember coming out and saying that we do need to add some civility into our disagreements, the rest seem to be just saying to not blame them for the shooting, but nothing about the rhetoric coming from both parties.
I understand them not wanting to be blamed for what they had nothing to do with, but still (as sad as it may be) the shooting and response gave us something to hopefully cool down the hate that gripped our entire political process. Yet the left seems to want to use it to mainly blame the right (at least they are talking about it though) and the right wants to ignore it. I've seen supporters go even farther, saying a cry for civility in debate/disagreement is saying you want agreement. Or by saying we should step back, means you want to ban people from free speech.
So that is what I'm wondering, why does it seem like none of the right-wing commentators/politicians/supporters want things to be toned down? surely they cannot (well commentators might, as on both sides they'd rather yell and shout then be civil) think the current discourse is perfect?
