Just a few short years ago Kyrsten Sinema
(D-AZ) was beloved by progressives and considered “courageous” by the left
because she came out as bisexual. She was, in fact, the first
openly bisexual member of the United States Senate, a trailblazer, a
living, breathing, shagging combination of Neil Armstrong, Jackie Robinson and
Rosa parks, one of the finest people ever to trod the Earth.
despite her genital inclusiveness, progressives now consider Sinema a horrible
person because she's sticking to her guns, refusing to change her political
beliefs, and doing what she thinks is best for the country, not what is best or
easiest for her. Her thus far steadfast refusal to attack the filibuster
and Electoral College, coupled with her hesitancy to vote to spend the United
States into oblivion, has caused activists to chase
her into bathrooms, and the usual suspects in her party and the mainstream
media— and here I’m being redundant—to endlessly chastise her.
This is just example 7,892,458 of
Democrats and progressives rank hypocrisy.
Example 7,892,459 is the fact that Dems and
progressives not only gave a pass to BLM and Antifa rioters in their 4-month
long assault on America’s cities in 2020, but actively encouraged them in their
burning and looting. Too bad that dozens of innocent people were killed in that
orgy of violence mostly peaceful protest, but one has to break a few
eggs to make an omelet, right? The hypocrisy comes in when one compares how
these rioters were treated with the treatment of those who strolled through the
Capitol on January 6th. Some of these folks are still incarcerated,
some without being charged. Impossible in this country with our Bill of Rights
and equal justice under the law? Nope. Not anymore it’s not. Not in Biden’s
And there’s more. Those on the Left
believe the Canadian truckers are bad, too. How dare they peacefully assemble
against Trudeau’s tyranny! If your leaders demand that you inject something
into your body—repeatedly—in order to be allowed to work, then you just
shut up and do it! “Workers of the world unite” is so yesterday!
We all know that George Floyd's
death at the hands of the Minneapolis police was the single worst thing that has
ever happened in the history of the world. But why was the equally unarmed Ashley
babbitt's death at the hands of the Capitol police no big deal, possibly even
richly deserved? And now it turns out that Capitol Hill’s finest may have also
pepper-sprayed, trampled and/or beaten
Rosanne Boyland to death. But, you know…meh.
If you literally just switched the intentions
and identities of these groups, “progressives” and the media would have switched
their take on their actions. If MAGA hat-wearing Trump supporters would have
burned and looted America’s cities in 2020 and BLM and Antifa had breached the
Capitol Building on January 6th, Democrats and their media
sycophants would have called for the harshest possible penalties to be levied
against the former, while praising the latter for their “necessary” message and
the courage of their convictions. If the Canadian truckers were protesting
alleged racial disparity instead of vaccine mandates, the same media that
treated them like pariahs would have fallen head-over-heels in love with them.
“A couple of blocked bridges and a somewhat clogged capital city are a small
price to pay for advancing the cause of freedom,” they would have crowed. If
Rosanne Boyland, a Black woman, had died at the hands of a Minneapolis policeman
after trying to pass off counterfeit bills or stealing merchandise while high
on drugs, and George Floyd had been murdered while attempting to enter the
Capitol Building in a misguided effort to support Trump, the media would have
endlessly extolled Boyland’s virtues and branded Floyd a violent
insurrectionist whose demise was warranted. And they would have done so while
noting that the brave Capitol police were just doing their job, unlike the
bloodthirsty officer in Minneapolis.
As I have previously noted here,
calling current events “preposterous”
just doesn’t cut it anymore.
