CNN's Brooke Baldwin Just Called Out Liberal Double Standards
I just looked out my window to check on the possibility of airborne swine. Or if, in fact, Satan's hottest caverns had turned to ice. CNN's Brooke Baldwin, who is far from a conservative stalwart, just called out media's liberal double standard. Watch:
Conservatives have been pointing to a double standard on how liberal stars who say these offensive things are treated, versus their conservative counterparts. And in many cases, rightfully so.
Despite all of this, Olbermann just got another plum job. A job, ironically, at the same company that just booted Roseanne for violating its values.
Okay, a couple of things. One, imagine for a second how liberals would have reacted if Roseanne or a conservative TV star would have used that language describing Valerie Jarrett. Whether you agree with the President’s policies or not, calling a senior advisor inside the United States government or anyone for that matter the “C” word is, like I said at the top, it’s outrageous, it is unacceptable and should be called out. She could have easily made her point without using those words, a point that, by the way, is totally lost because she used that language. Doing this she is no better than the very behavior she criticizes. In fact, she becomes part of the problem.
Major credit where due here. The liberal media gives passes to its vile stars almost daily. But jumps on anyone who's even partially on the other side of the aisle at the soonest opportunity. Just as they did with Roseanne. After a tweet.
This double standard has been going on since as long as I can remember. Problem now is, with video clips aplenty, with the internet's recall capacity, it's much harder to get away with the hypocrisy without pushback. Now, as conservatives point and say "HEY, WHAT ABOUT THIS!?" it's harder for the leftist media to shrug and spin.
If we're going to demand entertainment stars and personalities be decent, then they need to be decent. If it's okay for Samantha Bee to call a woman, any woman, a feckless cunt, then we can't destroy Roseanne's career over a racist tweet. Especially not in a span of days. We can't throw a woman's career away in one instance, but award another after a rant which, at least in my opinion, is way worse than Roseanne's tweet.
