Double standard exists for liberals and Republicrats while Trump staff irrationally smeared as anti-Semites
The link received in an email was too compelling to resist. AOL News, flexing its decidedly anti-Trump muscle, contemptibly refers to an “anti-Semitic term” used during a White House staff meeting. Pulled in by what appears to be a vulgarity, imagine the surprise to read the word that so offends the delicate sensibilities of the left-wing media. Simple sleuthing found the charge originated at the HuffPost with this headline: “This Anti-Semitic Term Was Casually Used At The White House 3 Times This Week.”
The pejorative word, worthy of such hyperventilation by AOL and HuffPost?
Sit down before you fall down. The offensive word is ….“globalist.”
It’s a term Arizona Sen. Jeff Flake, a dedicated ‘Never Trumper,’ says he embraces.
In his book with the stolen title, Conscience of a Conservative, soon- to-be-out-the-door Flake writes,
“Seemingly overnight, the word globalist became a grave insult among people in my party who also call themselves ‘conservative.” He continues, “In this country, we are less than 5 percent of the world’s population. We are 20 percent of the world’s economic output. And if we don’t trade, we don’t grow. Given the alternatives, I’ll take the globalist moniker, thank you.”
But the well-named HuffPost hyperventilates, huffing “the term ‘globalist’ has been used at the White House at least three times this week in reference to an outgoing Jewish Trump administration official, raising some eyebrows because the word is increasingly used in xenophobic and anti-Semitic contexts.”
And if that’s the case — which we dispute — why did these liberals give Jeff Flake a pass?
The answer is liberals and Republicrats function under a different set of standards than conservatives, who are always blameworthy. Remember that the next time you open your mouth. And don’t make the mistake of a D.C. mayor’s employee fired (and ultimately rehired when the word was researched) for using the word ‘niggardly,’ rooted in the Old Norse verb ‘nigla,’ which means “to fuss about small matters.” If you’re a guy don’t compliment a female co-worker about anything or the #MeToo police will be bringing you a box to put your desk contents into as they accompany you doing the perp walk out the door.
It’s a new world, folks. One in which you’re apt to be found guilty for nothing, especially if you’re a conservative.
