Today’s tales of Lefty craziness have as a common denominator the double standards that infect every issue they touch, especially around Trump and Brennan.
It’s only sexual assault when Trump muses about it hypothetically. I know you remember the Access Hollywood tape in which Trump said, with complete accuracy, that if you’re a famous person, women will willingly let you grab their genitals. Maybe he was speaking from personal experience; maybe he was reflecting Bill Clinton’s experience. We don’t know and we can’t know. What we do know is that, for making this completely accurate, albeit hypothetical, statement in the context of locker room talk, Trump was labeled a rapist and sexual assaulter.
At the time, alleged comedian Chelsea Handler, a stalwart Hillary supporter, had this to say: “Any man who still supports DONALD trump has no respect for women. Hillary is training by having a drunk ape throw apples at her head.” She even made a little incest joke: “My father has always respected women’s pussies. I for one, should know.” -Ivanka Trump”
In turns out — and I know you’ll be surprised to hear this — that the same Chelsea Handler believes that the standard is quite different when you’re a Leftist, in which case grabbing people by the genitals is just another type of handshake:
In defending Mr. Franken against numerous allegations of sexual misconduct, Ms. Handler admitted during an interview with Buzzfeed News that she’s grabbed people’s genitals “many times” in photographs before and didn’t think that should be considered sexual assault.
“I don’t want to diminish anyone’s legitimate claim of feeling like they’ve been assaulted, because that’s your feeling,” she said. “But I think there is a very big difference of a man putting his arm around you — he’s a comedian, I’ve touched people’s breasts and genitals I can’t imagine how many times in photos. That doesn’t excuse it, but that’s something, that’s not rape. That’s not sexual assault, and it’s not repeated behavior over and over again.”
Leftist think: “It’s always innocent when we do it.”
And then there’s this pictorial reminder of another example of hypocrisy about a Leftist who engages in sexual and physical assault:
If Leftists didn’t have double standards, they wouldn’t have any standards at all. [Read more…]
