Why Do We See Such Double Standards From The Left?

Why Do We See Such Double Standards From The Left?

We have seen over the last ten years, the statements of change from the left, that sins of the past should be ignored, that they should not be held responsible for the sins of their youth, which many of us have many. The problem with this is that they demand this grace be given to them, turn around and refuse to give it if you are not part of their liberal group think!

Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam, busted earlier for either wearing a blackface or a KKK costume (it is unknown which, he will not say which one he was wearing), yet when this was seen the liberal left was angry for a short while, then forgot that this ever happened and threw their support behind him.

Meanwhile, his Lt. Governor, Justin Fairfax, has faced accusation after accusation of sexual assualt, no one said did nothing, he has refused to step down, just like Gov. Northam, this is perfectly fine.

We saw further hypocrisy during the Obama Administration, the left which stood solidly in the traditional marriage camp suddenly wanted the world to believe they had evolved, yet they refuse to give the same to the GOP, one has to wonder, why is that?

Further, we hear that Democrats that were racist in that past, they get a free pass, a great example of this is the late Robert Byrd, the man that Hillary Clinton said influenced more greatly than any other politician, yet he at one time was a leader in the KKK, that is fine so long as you are a Democrat, according to the left.

Look at the GOP you see just the opposite from the left, they make accusations of racism without any evidence, even when there is no evidence they accept it as such. You can look at Justice Kavanaugh, they are now trying to impeach due to an accusation, not from the one that they claim was the victim, she does not remember, but because someone else made the accusation that is good enough for some of them to start an impeachment proceedings or at least call for one.

The #MeToo started to equally force out legislators on both sides, but this, like many well-meaning organizations, soon turned into a corrupt political tool used to clear out people on just mere accusations, finding proof had little to so with this.

In the end #MeToo more destroyed lives on accusations that would never stand up in a court of law, and why? We were told that accusations were the same as assignment of guilt, no one should DARE to question, then the dam broke, the accusations that were false started, soon, like the term Racism, these accusations lost all their power.

I think the thing that gets me the most is when you have leaders with the DNC running for president want to come across as pious, yet they are the most inept people I have ever seen, they are more interested in political correctness then actually getting things done. While I understand the game of politics, can we stop with this false moral superiority, it is getting rather tiring at this point.

There is a need to stop, as well, the claims of white privilege, there is nothing factual about this, when tried on me I usually just tell the person saying this that I could care less, I reject such racism. To claim that anyone somehow is privileged due to the color of their skin is the very definition of racism.

We need to demand that both sides be held equally to the same standards, no more should accusations be used as an assignment of guilt, we have seen for as long as people have been on this planet, where people’s lives are destroyed by a false rumor. No one should be assigned guilt until it is given proof of.
