I’m not for attacking people personally. Here’s my operating premise: “Don’t give anyone the opportunity to reject your position other than the position itself.” While I do not always follow my own rule, I do my best to keep the debate about the debate. Anything else is a distraction. Only liberals can attack their opponents personally.
Fox’s Bill O’Reilly made an off-hand comment about Maxine Waters’ hair looking like a “James Brown wig.” He later apologized for his “dumb comment.” It was dumb, but it was no more offensive than making fun of Donald Trump’s hair, over, and over, and over again. If women want to be treated like men, then they should roll with the punches like men do.
Maxine Waters is the gold standard of outrageous personal attacks. Trump doesn’t “deserve to be President,” she said. “She is just spouting the left-wing company line, and anyone who disagrees with her… well, she doesn’t brook disagreement,” O’Rreilly wrote. “That’s not patriotism madam, that’s demagoguery.”
Fox co-host Ainsley Earhardt defended Waters. “You can’t go after a woman’s looks. I think she’s very attractive.” You can only attack a man’s looks and the looks of conservative women. Black conservatives can be demeaned with no political repercussions.
Liberals have selective memories when it comes to their political crimes. The latest memory lapse is how Democrats and their liberal sycophants in the media shamed Katherine Harris who was the Secretary of State in Florida during the crucial 2000 presidential election. “That year Harris gained national attention for her role in the Florida election recount, certifying George W. Bush’s narrow victory over Al Gore and awarding him the Florida electors, which gained him the national election.”
Some of you may be too young to remember the months-long recount of “hanging chads” that sent the election into electoral chaos.
