Hypocrisy at Work

The double standard of the political process in this country is disgusting. For some time now, with the help of the “Lame Stream Media,” the Liberal Democrats have gotten a free ride and a “Get Out of Jail Free Card” when it comes to personal gaffs. The latest of course is the recent revelation of Prince Harry’s comments concerning President Obama, saying that then Candidate Obama was electable because he was a light skinned black and didn’t speak in “Negro dialect” unless he wanted to.

As I’m sure you can easily imagine, if it was known that any conservative politician had even had the same thought, let alone uttered the words, he would have been tarred and feathered and ran out of Washington on a rail. Case in point is of course the Trent Lott affair.

In 2002, Trent Lott made the mistake of saying, on the occasion of Strom Thurman’s 100th birthday while trying to say something nice about the old guy, that he thought the country might have faired better if Strom had been elected to the Presidency during his campaign bid in 1948, forgetting of course Strom had been a segregationists in his past. After the gaff, the liberal-left-loonies started a campaign to pillory the Senate Majority Leader, forcing his resignation.

Then Senator Obama commented on the incident saying, "It seems to be that we can forgive a 100-year-old senator for some of the indiscretion of his youth, but, what is more difficult to forgive is the current president of the U.S. Senate (Lott) suggesting we had been better off if we had followed a segregationist path in this country after all of the battles and fights for civil rights and all the work that we still have to do," said Obama.

He added: "The Republican Party itself has to drive out Trent Lott. If they have to stand for something, they have to stand up and say this is not the person we want representing our party." Eight days later, Lott of Mississippi stepped down as majority leader – not president of the Senate.

How did our dear leader respond to Prince Harry’s gaff? He was quoted as saying, "I accepted Harry's apology without question because I've known him for years, I've seen the passionate leadership he's shown on issues of social justice and I know what's in his heart. As far as I am concerned, the book is closed."

That was just the tip of the hypocritical iceberg and the double standard that exists in Washington, D.C., when it comes to Liberal Democrats getting free passes when they either accidentally or intentionally make controversial comments. As I said, it’s disgusting. There should be a standard that is followed by everyone. The Democrats have set that standard over and over again, as with the Trent Lott incident, however, that standard only seems apply to Conservative Republicans, not them, which is typical of the elitist arrogance that this group of out of touch politicians displays on a daily basis.

And the public wonders why these same people are trying to push through multiple agendas that the majority of the public do not support? The answer is very simple; they hold the public, and those who do not agree with them, in disdain and contempt, believing they are smarter than anyone else, more privileged than anyone else and therefore are deemed the ruling class, to do as they please.

It’s time to send these elitist scum a wake-up call in November.
