I can discuss the prevalent double standard about how the left and their cronies in the LSM handle news about scandalous behavior from their side or that of their opponents – and have no doubts that the left believes anyone not with them is the enemy – but that’s a waste of time. When it’s one of their enemies that is in potential trouble, they are swift to pass judgment, based on flimsy information, if not outright conjecture and emotional drivel. Don’t take my word for it. Research how often anyone that disagrees with King Obama or anything else the left uses to keep its hold on power, and you will find anyone being critical of them automatically being labeled as racist, sexist, homophobic, anti-science, being a terrorist, or against progress, for which of course, only they stand.
Even more important is how they will spin things, even when there are no facts to back the bullshit they peddle up, to create trouble for those they view as the enemy. If there is a way to make the enemy look bad, they go for the jugular. Nobody is spared. They will dig through the garbage of a member of the opposition they view as a threat, and make up shit if they find nothing. They will immediately accuse the enemy of having criminal intent, practically always based on flimsy or no evidence. When they do have evidence, they hammer the narrative home. They will report and accuse local or small potato members of the enemy of abuses, criminal behavior, or of not adhering to the PC standards the left created (but doesn’t hold its people to), while ignoring real crime, abuse of power, and despicable behavior by prominent members of the loyal leftocracy. If you have the wrong letter next to your political affiliation, you are assumed to be guilty, and condemned, even though they might pretend they are not doing that, whether there is something there or not. And if it is there, it is national news.
But when it comes to one of their own, the leftists, when they can’t just ignore the story, will obfuscate the facts and paint the whole thing in the most positive light possible, pretending, with all seriousness, that what they are doing is waiting for the facts to come out. The right thing to do is to not prejudge, and to wait for the whole affair to play itself out In the meantime, again unless they can just drop the story and hope it goes away, they will tell you that the blatant impropriety, abuse of power, or downright criminal activity one of their own was caught in, is all made up, and that the evil opponents of progress are just trying to make hay out of nothing. These things I mention can all be found in the lack of coverage and the continued cover-up of the now almost 2 year old IRS scandal.
What is now obvious is that the objective is to drag it out so they can tell the low information voter that the story is old. It’s why people like me have an immediate and visceral reaction whenever the left tells us we need to wait out the facts and the investigation when one of their own was caught. We have to wait for whatever is practically exhibit A for the fact that there is illegal or criminal behavior involved.
Every scandal that Team Blue is involved in seems to follow this process. The government’s role in the Fast-and-Furious (have you heard what’s going on with this anymore?) anti-second amendment scheme, the despicable cover-up of what went down in Benghazi to protect Hillary and King Obama, the IRS targeting political opponents of the left, The lies and chicanery around Obamacare, and countless other such stories all require us to wait for the facts, only to then turn into the left telling us “what does it matter now anymore”. Despicable.
