Was the Call for a National Day of Civility Met with a Civil Response?
On Wednesday, House Speaker Paul D. Ryan made an impassioned plea with Americans to “improve the tone of debate.” Critics on the breeding ground of civil discourse known as Twitter used the opportunity to air concerns about Ryan and the GOP.
Lawmakers introduced legislation last month to make July 12 the National Day of Civility — a day to remind people “to be more respectful and polite to others in daily life,” according to the resolution. Although it has yet to clear the House, Ryan (R-Wis.) tweeted a promotional video Wednesday about how we should be more civil.
