Washington, D.C. – Congressman Emanuel Cleaver II (D-MO) and Congressman Kevin Yoder (R-KS) today received the Consensus Civility Award for their efforts in bringing civility to public life as Members of Congress. They were among the six members of the inaugural class of Consensus Civility Award winners who were recognized this morning at a ceremony at Rockhurst University in Kansas City.
“It is a great honor to receive the Consensus Civility Award, and an honor that gives me hope,” said Congressman Cleaver. “Often, the debate in DC can devolve into one with a great deal more heat than light. As we return to Washington to work on the issues facing our nation, we must remember that while partisanship is a vital component of democracy, only healthy disagreement can propel us forward, to better ideas and brighter days. Embracing a civil exchange of ideas and respectful differences of opinion fosters real debate, and allows our best ideas to shine.”
Now we know for sure the end times must be near! Cleaver receives a civility award while he campaigns with rappers who called former President Bush a “racist “and another who raps, “no more white lies – My President is black.” Mr. Satan Sandwich himself gets a civility award while outright lying when he said heard racial epithets hurled at him while he and other Democrats took their triumphant march to Capitol Hill after Obamacare passed.
