Garrett julian.garrett@legis.iowa.gov Extreme Campaign Rhetoric It is discouraging to see the all the nasty campaign rhetoric at the national level from political candidates and some of the media. It seems to be very hard to have a rational, reasonable discussion of issues. Instead we get never ending name calling. Too many people, if they are losing the debate on the issues, resort to name calling. The killings in El Paso and Dayton generated 24 hour per day coverage with constant reminders that the El Paso killer apparently was targeting Hispanics, and blaming President Trump’s rhetoric. What was rarely mentioned is that the killer apparently was also an extreme environmentalist. He also had written that his opinions on immigration pre-dated the Donald Trump campaign. The Dayton shooter was self-described as an extreme leftist, a supporter of socialism, pro-Satan and Elizabeth Warren supporter, though those facts are hardly ever mentioned. Apparently, facts that do not support the claim that Trump is to blame for the shootings, should not be mentioned, according to those on the left. The point that we should'be able to understand is that because a bad person agrees with a politician on some issue or other, does not justify blaming the politician for the actions of the bad person. , Iowa Senate Rules Luckily things are not as bad here at the state level but even here things can get a little heated. The rules of the Iowa Senate prohibit personal attacks and .name calling, but occasionally even in the Senate someone will forget and have to be reminded of the rules. Here is Senate Rule 9: Debate and Decorum “Before addressing the senate, the senator shall request recognition by depressing the “speak” device and, when recognized, rise and respectfully address the chair. The senator shall confine all remarks to the question under debate and shall avoid discussing personalities or implication of improper motives. No questions except by the senator recognized shall be entertained after a senator is recognized to give final remarks.” Of course, the rules of the Senate do not affect what people say or do outside the Senate. I believe that there are times when it is justifiable to point out hypocrisy and inconsistencies. However, I believe most of us would prefer that candidates and others would be a little more respectful of the opinions of others, and tone down the rhetoric. I also fear that we will not see that happening. As always please feel free to contact me with your ideas or concerns. Registration Still Open for NABC Golf Outing It’s that time of year again!
