If you didn’t already think there was a double standard for political discourse in this country then this ought to convince you.
Liberals take cheap shots at republicans all day long, and we call it comedy – even art – but when a conservative takes aim at a liberal… boy howdy, you better get ready for a lashing.
The list of accusations goes on and on. You simply can’t criticize a liberal without getting a ton of flack for it.
Take this hilarious comic that compares Melania Trump to Michelle Obama. We don’t have to explain it. We’ll just let it speak for itself.
The Conservative Tribune gives us the comic along with some additional commentary:
Eh, the caricature is no uglier than one of Michelle’s school lunches, if you ask me.
According to the U.K. Daily Mail, it didn’t take long for social justice warriors all over Twitter to pounce.
“Honestly this is racist as hell and reverts back to stereotypes that black women are angry and masculine,” Femi H tweeted.
“Oddly, they feel the need to denigrate Michelle to prop up Melania, when that’s so not the point. But they’re too stupid to (understand) that,” Imani Gandy wrote.
“A Princeton and Harvard Law School educated lawyer vs. a Slovenia high-school dropout turned model/goldigger. #yeahright,” Marcus Wesson said.
“You know, I’m *just* now noticing the bulge. So it’s not only misogynoiristic AF….it’s trans-misogynoiristic AF,” wrote another user, who apparently can’t even get close to the spelling of misogynistic.
What’s truly hilarious is that I bet all of these liberals have criticized Donald Trump over and over for his looks. They’re also the same ones calling Melania a “high-school dropout turned model/goldigger (sic)” or Trump fans “too stupid” to understand that’s “so not the point.”
Not that I’m saying these comments should be off-limits. Satire and joking should be part of any presidential campaign — indeed, any political campaign.
But the siren call of the left has always been to stop those who would joke at their expense with terms like “racist” or “misogynist.” (Oh, sorry — “misogynoirist.”)
This double standard is getting a little old. When will liberals learn to take a dose of their own medicine?
