Democrat's Double Standards
Ralph Northam does something racially insensitive in 1982

[c=#BF0000]HE MUST RESIGN IMMEDIATELY AND HONOR SUICIDE [/c]

Ilhan Omar does something just as bad

[c=#BF0000]Just say you're sorry honey and it'll be OK[/c]

[b][big]Can anyone explain the double standard?[/big][/b]

[c=#003BB2]https://www.washingtonpost.com/nation/2019/02/11/its-all-about-benjamins-baby-ilhan-omar-again-accused-anti-semitism-over-tweets/[/c]

[quote]Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.), who has faced accusations of anti-Semitism for perpetuating the stereotype that Jews control politics with money, issued an apology Monday afternoon, a mea culpa amid a firestorm of criticism from both parties.

"Anti-Semitism is real and I am grateful for Jewish allies and colleagues who are educating me on the painful history of anti-Semitic tropes,” Omar said on Twitter. “We have to always be willing to step back and think through criticism, just as I expect people to hear me when others attack me for my identity. This is why I unequivocally apologize.”

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and other Democratic leaders said in a statement that Omar’s use of “anti-Semitic tropes and prejudicial accusations about Israel’s supporters is deeply offensive,” but added that her critiques of Israel’s policies and its treatment of Palestinians are protected by free speech.

And then they blame the republicans for being racist.
hippyjoe1955 · 61-69, M
[@337057,JP1119] So what about that antisemite sitting in congress. She is a democrat.
JP1119 · 31-35, M
[@10033,hippyjoe1955] I honestly haven’t taken the time to read the article, but I’ve gathered from the comments that all she did was question Israel’s policies. That’s not anti-Semitic. I’ve seen several anti-Semitic posts on SW complaining about all the Jews in Congress (apparently 99% of which are Democrats), and how they’re allegedly robbing everyone and taking away the nation’s sovereignty in favor of globalism. Anyway, what does that have to do with whether or not [i]today’s[/i] Republicans freed the slaves?

[@872792,MyParentsAreProud] actually, most plantation owners were democrats...

republicans were too poor to own slaves

That's easy. Ralph Northam is white. Ilhan Omar is a double minority, PoC and Muslim. Ralph has to be destroyed and Ilham has to be propped up. It's the SJW way.

There are double standards on both polical sides and it's sad at best. And I certainly don't defend this one, nor any other Democrats. Or Republicans double standards...

That being said you're trying comparing 1982 politics to 2019 politics? In the short life of politics that is like a couple generation (politicians wise)...

I'm surprised you didn't use something more recent than 37 years ago to make a better comparison.

[@10033,hippyjoe1955] Yes but in was in blackface standing next to a person in Klan gear in the book I believe.

[@33564,Sicarium] Completely wrong, as you're wrongly assuming I knew all the iinformation that you do on this subject and that I did that on purpose...

When the reality is I honestly didn't know that as [@872792,MyParentsAreProud] explained to me that this is a current reaction to the 1982 story which makes my first post completely wrong. (Edit: Except the part about not liking the double standards that both parties use)
hippyjoe1955 · 61-69, M
[@800884,Viper] Which meant he had no trouble with the klan. Does not speak well of his judgement.

All is good, glad I could help.

What’s good for the goose is good for the gander.

Republicans and Democrats have the same double standards. They protect their own.

Neither party possesses the moral majority
Sicarium · 41-45, M
[@802348,JoeyFoxx] I get that you're a triggered 5 year old, but if you're going to claim some level of honesty, don't lie in the process. It just looks bad.

And since you're rather dense, the lie, in this case, is that "scientifically based reports" are what Trump calls fake news. Lol, I mean, just wow. You're a hack.
JoeyFoxx · 46-50, M
Ok pumpkin.

Be a good boy and eat the nice lunch mommy made for you.

[@802348,JoeyFoxx] Your 5 year old triggered troll routine is showing.
QuixoticSoul · 31-35, M
Omar was fine.
QuixoticSoul · 31-35, M
[@33564,Sicarium] You’re the one who can’t seem to explain what is actually anti-semitic about that statement - been ducking it since the beginning, hiding behind mama pelosi’s skirts.
Sicarium · 41-45, M
[@580625,QuixoticSoul] And you're the one pretending that we're just talking about one statement here. And, again, since you insist on being dishonest, it wasn't just Pelosi. Every time you repeat that lie, I'm going to correct you.
QuixoticSoul · 31-35, M
[@33564,Sicarium] They all dance to her tune, that’s why I voted for her. Anyway, once again, you’ve avoided the topic, congrats.
beckyromero · 31-35, F
I'm a Democrat and I don't care for either one of them. I think it would be good for the party (and America) if they BOTH step aside.

I'd like to see Omar challenged in the 2020 primary but she won't be.

As for Virginia, the Lt. Gov and AG should also go.

Now, I'd first make sure the Gov. appoints a new Lt. Gov. first, either a Democrat or an independent, to make sure he GOP doesn't screw with the redistricting process (that's the real reason why he's still there).

But, all three should go.
wildbill83 · 31-35, M
Democrats endorse people like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Rashida Tlaib, Ilhan Omar, etc. (people who constantly make anti semitic, anti caucasian, anti democratic, etc. remarks)

But Trump is a Nazi... 🙄
JoeyFoxx · 46-50, M
In other words, we continue to elect people who are hypocritical and incompetent.

Regardless of party affiliations, we only have ourselves to blame

[@597698,wildbill83]
Sicarium · 41-45, M
[@597698,wildbill83] What's awesome is when idiot leftists defend anti-Semitism and then accuse anyone to the right of Stalin of being a Nazi.
MyParentsAreProud · 18-21, M
[@33564,Sicarium]

The left are hypocrites
