Democrats got it good
The phrase “Damn, Democrats got it good” is a phrase I have used on my radio show for years. I don’t think I made it up, but I don’t know where I heard it or some variation of the phrase. If there was a better way to summarize the way America’s mainstream media treats Republicans versus the way they treat Democrats, I don’t know what it is.
In the past week alone, Democrats rolled out a completely insane “Green New Deal,” had three leaders in one state embroiled in sex abuse or racial scandals while Democrats pretended they had no idea what was going on, had one their darlings uttering every anti-Semitic trope she can think of short of calling them “hook-nosed” and a presidential candidate has been busted lying about her heritage for decades to get a boost.
What is the general response of the most major newspapers, broadcast and cable outlets?
Silence. Deflection. Protection.
But what if these were Republican scandals and faux pas?
Green New Deal disaster? The mockery coming from late-night hosts would be center stage and the endless stories about the savagery of social media sick burns would be seared into our brain.
Virginia is for losers? This is the most amazing scandal to me. If this had been Alabama Republicans, the media would be boosting every obscure protest group, of which there would be many, and pressure would be mounting on every business in the state to get a trio of scalps.
Anti-Semitic Barbie? These comments would bring up comparisons to Charlottesville, KKK and cosplayers with tiki torches, followed by people misquoting the president about people on “both sides” being good people.
Fauxahontas? Not only would Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s (D-MA) 2020 campaign be over with, she would also be facing calls to resign from the Senate by scowling talking heads.
It’s as if the American media is made up of mostly liberals who are more interested in helping Democrats get elected. They are clearly not interested in reflecting the views of the nation and that becomes clearer every single day.
