I’ve written time and again of the double standard of today’s progressive left. They frequently defend the rights of certain groups, only to backtrack and do the opposition for anyone that doesn’t share their views.
It’s what we like to call hypocrisy.
The left love to fight for women’s rights, unless that woman is a conservative. We saw that years ago when Sarah Palin was running for Vice President. We’ve seen that recently with Melania Trump. Despite the fact that these women are great examples of strong, successful mothers and leaders, the left has attacked them viciously.
This was also true of Presidential candidate Ben Carson. He was a black American who pulled himself out of the inner city of Detroit to become a celebrated neurosurgeon and author. A fine example for every young black American. But when he ran as a conservative, the left branded him as a figure to mock and deride.
This is especially of the left’s fanatical defense of Islam. They seem to want to afford rights and protections to this group that they refuse to extend to Christians. Even though all religions are protected thanks to the First Amendment, the regressive left seems to demand obedience to their dogma for Christians that they don’t demand for Muslims.
From Louder with Crowder:
Welcome to UW-Madison. Or, welcome back. Crowderheads have been here before (see Univ. of Wisconsin Offers Class on ‘Problem of Whiteness’ and University of Wisconsin Creates Absurd New List of ‘Racist Microaggressions’). When it comes to act of moronic political correctness, ’tis a frequent offender. Today we bring you the latest in, “As Religious Freedom Turns.” UW-Madison students seem to think some religious deserve rights, while others not so much.
Everyone agreed that a creative professional should have the foundational freedom to decline work that conflicts with their conscience or beliefs. But, when faced with a situation that goes against current cultural expectations? Like a Christian photographer declining to promote a same-sex wedding? The gears start grinding. If a law that forces someone to promote something against their beliefs is so laughable, so unimaginable…then why is it so difficult to extend the same freedom to a Christian creative professional?
The video is pretty shocking. All the students were on board with a designer refusing to work with the First Lady of the United States. They even embraced the hypothetical situation where a Muslim singer refused to work with a Christian church–even if there was a law preventing her from doing so.
But when a Christian photographer doesn’t want to photographer a gay wedding? …Ooh! They suddenly sang a different tune! Suddenly the rights and beliefs of a Christian matter less than a local ordinance or the desire to make things “fair.”
This kind of hypocrisy is riff throughout the left–and it’s why more and more Americans are abandoning them. If you say you are for equal rights for all–including the religious liberty of one group–then those rights extend to everyone, not just the people you agree with.
Also consider the hypocrisy of liberals defending Muslims, whose religious beliefs often fly in the face of their own politics. If these students really studied what 90% of the Muslims in the world believed, they wouldn’t be quick to defend them.
Yet they do, because their morally bankrupt professors and the liberal media tell them so. They refuse to think for themselves and even challenge the ideas they are forced to swallow.
The rest of the country thinks otherwise, folks. And we will vote accordingly.
