Return of the Double Standard

By GotDesign

This should come as no real surprise, but the Democrats are being critical of a Republican political consultant who happens to be gay. In particular, former President Bill Clinton made comments this weekend about a conservative political consultant, Arthur Finklestein, who had created an organization ("Stop Her Now") to oppose Sen. Hillary Clinton's presidential aspirations. Instead of attacking the organization or the motivations for such a movement, the ex-President launches an ad hominem attack at Finkelstein, saying his announcements among friends of his recent civil union with his long-time partner was a sign of "self-loathing." Clinton said: "I thought, one of two things. Either this guy believes his party is not serious, and is totally Machiavellian in his position, or there's some sort of self-loathing there. I was more sad for him."

The article goes on to compare the former President's remarks to similar remarks made by Sen. John Kerry. During the 2004 presidential campaign, Kerry made remarks about Vice President Dick Cheney's gay daughter. It would seem that it is entirely proper for Democrats and Liberals to make disparaging comments about Republicans who are gay, but God forbid that a Republican/Conservative should make similar comments. When a Republican makes ANY comments regarding homosexuals or homosexuality, it is the height of bigotry and prejudice. Regardless of what is said. To the Left, Conservatives have no acceptable grounds on which to make commentary about gays.

It's the same way with practically every other minority group in the U.S. If you are a Conservative minority (Black, Hispanic, Gay, Woman, etc.), you must be out of your mind. Clarence Thomas, Alberto Gonzalez, Arthur Finkelstein, and Condi Rice (among others) must all be somehow deranged -- mentally unhinged because they're all Republicans.

I just hope that, despite the predominance of Lefties in the MSM, the American electorate sees this for what it is -- duplicity of the worst order.
