The Left's Sexism Double Standard

by the Left Coast Rebel

Les Carpenter has often referred to me before of the constant tit for tat gamesmanship that takes place in the nation's typically government-sponsored press. I have told him that the left is largely responsible for this but the right engages in it as well.

He agrees.

Worse yet, the right is often crucified over politically incorrect faux paus' that are simply ignored on the left side of things. My piece at Daily Caller today points this out in regards to a comment made my Harry Reid.

Excerpted from my Daily Caller piece today:

If one is an activist, political guru or just one that watches the daily goings-on in our nation’s body politic, one has surely noted the political gamesmanship (especially pervasive from the left) and sometimes from the right, that takes place on a daily basis.

Typically such one-upmanship hinges on pet liberal peccadilloes meant to malign and smear players right of center on the same old gotcha-canards of sexism, racism, bigotry, homophobia and greed.

The nation burns as leftist radicals tear at the national fabric from within, yet daily headlines scream, this congressman said this, was caught on tape saying this, or in O’Donnell’s case, said this, this, someone says she said this, that 20 years ago.

As a product of their “intentions,” the same rules don’t apply to gaffes and missteps made by anyone on the left — this ruling class phenomenon is so pervasive now as to be considered an absolutely predictable leftist reaction by rightists.

Head over to the Daily Caller to read the rest here.
