What If A Conservative Said That?    



  By: David Fiorazo

Ignoring hypocrisy is one thing, but are we reaching the point where hate expressed toward the Trump administration and conservatives is becoming the new norm? And if you missed the tasteless remarks made by alleged comedian Michelle Wolf at the recent White House Correspondents’ Dinner, stay tuned for the response by Sarah Huckabee Sanders.

Like pop-ups on the Internet, mainstream media double standards never stop. In fact, I agree with Fox News host, Tucker Carlson, who said, “…hypocrisy is the heart of modern liberalism.”

Friday, griping about a lack of decency and civility in the Trump Whitehouse, MSNBC host Nicolle Wallace talked about choking Sarah Huckabee Sanders:

“Kristen Welker, how do you resist the temptation to run up and wring her neck?”

This begs the question, ‘what if a conservative said that about a liberal?’ MSNBC contributor Steve Schmidt chimed in, comparing Trump to Saddam Hussein and Huckabee Sanders to Baghdad Bob. Watch!

“[I]f Baghdad Bob didn't say what Saddam Hussein wanted him to say, Baghdad Bob would be shot. Sarah Sanders is lying of her own volition. She stands up there every day as a willful participant. Baghdad Bob was a hostage. Sarah Sanders is an accomplice; …in a debased administration that's dividing the country, hurting America, pitting Americans against each other,”

To be fair, many conservatives said it was the Obama administration that truly made civility and division worse in America. I guess it’s a matter of perspective.

But no implication of violence should go ignored.

Unamused and defending his daughter, former Governor, Mike Huckabee tweeted:



Responding to Nicole Wallace, another Democrat, John Heilemann said he couldn’t put up with White House Press briefings under a Republican president.

“I would slit my throat after about maybe two of those briefings if I had to sit in that room every day.”

And this is the tone of just one single interview on one progressive network. To her credit, Nicole Wallace later tweeted an apology saying she used “poorly chosen words.” Don’t hold your breath for an apology from Steve Schmidt.

There also was no apology after the Whitehouse Correspondents Dinner where Michelle Wolf called Sarah Huckabee-Sanders an “uncle Tom for white women,” accused her of lies, and made questionable references to her appearance. It was another hateful tirade that caused many to cringe. Even a few liberal journalists thought the jokes went too far.

White House staff members reportedly tried getting Huckabee Sanders to walk out of the dinner. But when asked about it afterward, she said:

"The people that were my friends before that evening are my friends today… I hope that she [Wolf] can find some of the same happiness we all have,”

Most of us could learn from the grace and humility she displayed. As for the liberal media hypocrisy, don’t expect a change anytime soon.
