A more pragmatic definition paints a Hudna as not only a temporary truce but also a method of deception used by radical Muslims to install a false sense of security among opponents. All terms and conditions of a Hudna are optional for the radicals, with their duration in effect "only as long as the Muslims need them to be."
When Democrats began promoting 'civility' after their libelous accusations linking a deranged Leftist mass-murderer (who despised George W. Bush) with the Tea Party, I immediately recognized a Hudna.
After a historic shellacking in the midterm elections, Democrats want to promote 'civility' in the form of a truce that will allow them to regroup.
In the words of Don Surber: bite me.
For a decade, from the election of Bush 43 forward, the Left has lied and cheated as it tried to return to power. Al Gore made a mockery out of the American electoral system by being a spoilsport over Florida, which Bush indeed won... Dan Rather forged a document to try to derail Bush’s re-election... After voting to support the war to get by the 2002 election, many Democrats quickly soured on the war. The profane protests were cheered by liberals [and once] in power, liberals were the opposite of gracious.
For two years now, I have been called ignorant, racist, angry and violent by the left. The very foul-mouthed protesters of Bush dare to now label my words as “hate speech.”
...screw [them and their] civil discourse.
I don’t want to hear it.
I have been screamed at for 10 years.
I feel the same way.
But not precisely because I'm angry, although I am angry at their destructive, catatonically stupid policies.
But because this is a hudna, plain as day. And I, for one, refuse to allow them to regroup or claim some sort of moral high ground when it is they who are immoral, dishonest and disrespectful.
It is they who are the cult, far from the mainstream, who have as their stated aim the destruction of the American system. And this 'civility' truce will last only as long as is convenient; for you can rest assured their hysterical, unhinged attacks will resume at the earliest window of political opportunity.
