Liberal's Duel Standard Tiring and Irksome

Let me take you back in our recent past to a comment that infuriated some of our nation’s leaders. It came at the 100th birthday celebration of Sen. Strom Thurmond, who ran as a “Dixiecrat” for president of the United States in 1948. Thurmond at that time was a strict segregationist.

So they are honoring him at the occasion of his 100th birthday and Trent Lott, in his tribute to Thurmond says, “When Strom Thurmond ran for president, we voted for him. We're proud of it. And if the rest of the country had followed our lead, we wouldn't have had all these problems over all these years, either…"

There was an immediate uproar by the usual plate of Democrats accusing Lott of making a racist remark implying that he believed that we should go back to the days of segregation, etc. Bowing to political pressures, where perception is reality—whether factual or not—Lott apologized saying, "My comments were not an endorsement of his positions of over 50 years ago, but of the man and his life."
Not good enough though. Eternal griper, Jesse Jackson called for Lott to resign, and former bag-of-wind-in-Chief, Al Gore said that Lott should apologize for his comments or face censure by the Senate. So Lott apologized AGAIN.
So here I am listening to my radio this week and I hear a recorded speech from high ranking Democrat, Joe Biden and he makes the following statement: “You cannot go to a 7-11 or a Dunkin Donuts unless you have a slight Indian accent. I’m not joking…”
I don’t know to what Biden was referring but it doesn’t really matter. Still, there was NO reaction; let me say that again; there was NO reaction from any democrat that I am aware of or the media over what was clearly a truly racist comment by this high ranking leader.
There was no huffing and puffing by Jesse Jackson; no bloviating by Al Gore, no editorials demanding Biden’s resignation; nothing, zip nada!
And my point yet again is that it is only conservatives that are held to any standard of right and wrong. Liberals are immune to the rule of law, the rule of decency; the rule of morality; the rule of common courtesy. Now why is that, I ask foolishly?

AS FDR said, "If it happens in politics, you can bet it was planned."
