Were It Not For Double Standards, Liberals Would Have No Standards At All
On today’s Daily Daily Caller Podcast, we talk about the different ways the media covers Democrats and Republicans when it comes to “first,” as in which flavor of person was the first to do something in politics and the different ways they talk about and cheapen accomplishments by people.
Listen to the show:
Arizona Democrats nominated a Hispanic candidate for governor last night and the liberal media is beside itself with joy, even though 40 years ago the state elected its first Hispanic governor. Meanwhile, the GOP nominated the first female fighter pilot as their Senate candidate, and they’ve mostly ignored that fact in covering that race.
MSNBC’s Ali Velshi chose to ignore how the Jacksonville shooter bought his gun in Maryland, a state with some of the strictest gun laws in the country, instead of focusing on the gun laws in Florida, which played zero role in the attack. Why? Because Florida has a Republican governor while Maryland’s laws, the ones that failed, were written and passed by Democrats. Former Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley, the man responsible for the restrictive Maryland laws, also chose to blame Florida and the NRA. If he wants to assign blame maybe he should find a mirror.
CNN’s Jeffrey Toobin claimed President Trump’s criticism of Antifa is racist because he thinks the violent left-wing gang is “predominantly African-American.” It’s not, it’s so white their camouflage in a snow storm is nudity. But that fact did not matter, as no one on the panel, not even host Wolf Blitzer, bothered to correct him. We did.
