Hypocrisy: Digging Deep Into The Democrats’ Double Standard


Written by Bill Thomas on April 3, 2019

“But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, and easy to be intreated, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality, and without hypocrisy” (James 3:17).

The word “hypocrite” is an interesting one. It came into English from the Greek word which means “an actor” or “a stage player.” The idea is that actors in ancient Greek theater wore large masks to mark which character they were playing. The same person could play multiple characters that way. He or she would simply use a different “false face.”

The Democrats today are drowning in a flood of hypocrisy. It isn’t a surprise, I’m guessing, to those who’ve been paying attention. Here are a few of the “false faces” the Democrats want to put forth.

Do you remember Gov. Ralph Northam, Lt. Gov. Justin Fairfax, and Attorney General Mark Herring? This was the trio of Virginia Democrats who found themselves in scandal a few months ago. Northam, remember, is the doctor who carefully described how to let an infant who survived an abortion die on the table. That’s the guy. Pictures of Northam in blackface were discovered, and Herring admitted to doing it as well. In normal circumstances, this would be an outrage, especially among the Democrats. Had a Republican done this, he or she would’ve already been out of office. Strange isn’t it that Northam and Herring remain.

Can you say hypocrisy?

Fairfax is another matter. He’s been accused by two different women of raping them. We are consistently reminded to believe the women. When Justice Brett Kavanaugh was accused by Dr. Christine Blasey Ford the Democrat presidential hopefuls were out in force. Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA), Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ), former Vice President Joe Biden, and Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) all declared that the believed Dr. Ford, some of them before even hearing her testimony.

After a few initial awkward moments in the media, I haven’t heard any of them call for his accusers to be believed. The fact that he remains in office is a testament to a double standard. It doesn’t take a theater major to see that’s a “false face,” hypocrisy run amok.

Speaking of former Vice President Biden, he’s found himself in some hot water, too. Likely a target from the far-left, Biden is being attacked for touching women and making them feel uncomfortable. Just to put it into perspective, here are some Democrat and media attitudes about that.

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) noted the importance of the “MeToo” movement during the hearings for Justice Kavanaugh. She wrote on her own website on October 1, 2018, of multiple credible, corroborated allegations of sexual harassment. She asserted that these, though ultimately unproven and spurious charges, should disqualify Kavanaugh from being on the highest court.

Now, though, with Biden, it’s different. She says of his recorded and undeniable actions, “such claims are not disqualifying for a potential 2020 presidential bid.” Let’s get this one straight. Accusations that were never proved because they never happened ought to have derailed Justice Kavanaugh, but actions clearly done by Vice President Biden which Democrat women have said made them uncomfortable are not disqualifying?

Can you say hypocrisy?

Then there’s the case of Rep. Jerrold Nadler (D-NY). According to Mediaite, April 2, 2019, Rep. Nadler opposed the release of the Starr Report. He told PBS’ Charlie Rose it should not be made public.

“As a matter of decency and protecting people’s privacy rights, people who may be totally innocent third parties, what must not be released at all,” Nadler said in 1998. Now, regarding the Mueller report, Nadler sings a different song. On April 3, 2019, Nadler’s House Judiciary Committee voted to issue subpoenas to obtain the unredacted report. Nadler has vehemently demanded that Attorney General William Barr send them the nearly 400-page Mueller report without redactions — along with all of the evidence that supports its findings.

Let’s be clear on this. When it was the Starr report, it needed to be held, but when it’s the Mueller report, it needs to be released.

Hmm, can you say hypocrisy?

Hypocrisy abounds among the Democrats today. They have double standards and different sets of rules. There’s one for the regular people and one for themselves.

Joy Villa Issues Fiery Response After Being Attacked over Pro-Trump Grammys Wardrobe

Singer Joy Villa showed up to the 2019 Grammys sporting a powerful political message through her attire, doing exactly what Joy Behar wants her musicians to be doing during award shows. Only, something tells me that the notoriously leftist loon Behar probably didn’t like the message Villa was pushing.

Wearing a long dress made to look like a wall, with the words “Build The Wall” scrawled on the back and holding a “Make America Great Again” purse, Villa made it pretty clear where she stood on President Donald Trump.

Naturally, since Villa was not conforming to the leftist ideals Behar and other liberals so desperately push, she was immediately vilified online and subjected to disgusting treatment.

To her credit, Villa didn’t take any of the criticisms laying down. She fired back in a very powerful and public manner.

“I don’t care what anyone thinks,” Villa bluntly said, before citing some statistics about drugs, sexual assault and child trafficking that the left will surely turn a blind eye toward.

But more importantly than defending herself, Villa also celebrated how her wardrobe choice was making more and more artists in the music industry comfortable to tout their conservative or Republican roots.

“I’m SO glad other artists are coming out,” Villa posted on Twitter. “It’s time. It’s been dominated for years by liberals.”

The most powerful and most fiery line of Villa’s tweets?

“Conservative culture is taking over.”

And just to be clear, Villa is not some flash in the pan crying for attention. She has consistently and proudly shown off her conservative beliefs. In fact, at the 2017 Grammys, Villa proudly wore a red, white and blue “Make America Great Again” dress.

She obviously had to deal with leftist backlash for that too, despite the fact that an immigrant actually made that dress for her.

In 2018, Villa donned a decidedly pro-life dress.

Perhaps if these award shows were less of a self-congratulatory exhibition for smug Hollywood elitists, and actually featured more authentic people with varying ideological viewpoints like Joy Villa, their ratings wouldn’t be so bad.

Terror Expert on What He Saw Going into Summit: Media Is Completely Off-Base


Reported By Ben Marquis | July 17, 2018 at 12:28pm

There was great consternation and outrage among the media and Democrats — as well as some Republicans — following President Donald Trump’s summit in Helsinki, Finland, with Russian President Vladimir Putin. While the harsh criticisms and shouts of “treason” from the hard left and NeverTrump right are more than a little disconcerting, they are not the least bit surprising as that sort of reaction has become rather predictable in this day and age.

Indeed, the stage was set ahead of the summit for just such a reaction by the media and Democrats, who displayed their “glaring hypocrisy” with regard to their coverage of Trump’s diplomatic meeting as opposed to the diplomatic meetings held by former President Barack Obama or former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

That was the message delivered on “Fox & Friends” on Sunday morning by former U.S. Army Special Forces member and anti-terrorism expert Jim Hanson, who pointed out the disparate ways in which Trump, Obama and Clinton were treated by the establishment and media following their particular dealings with Russia.

Co-host Pete Hegseth began the segment by recalling Clinton’s embarrassing attempt in 2009 to hit the “reset” button with Russia, using a hokey red plastic button that actually had the wrong Russian word printed on it to symbolize the development in U.S./Russian relations.

“And Hillary walks into that meeting asking for nothing with her giant button that actually said ‘overcharge’ in Russian, and she’s telling them, ‘ok, you can have whatever you want from us,’” Hanson said.

“Even a more glaring example was when President Obama was talking to (then-President) Medvedev of the Russian Republic and tells him, ‘after my next election I’ll have more flexibility,‘” he continued.

“Now that is him admitting that he was lying to the American public during that election cycle, and afterwards he would give Russia what they wanted. But yet, where is the outrage? Where is the press saying we should investigate that?” Hanson asked.

Hegseth asked what sort of “flexibility” Obama was referring to in that particular remark, and if it meant allowing Russia to annex Crimea, invade Ukraine or even meddle in our elections.

“All of it, and that’s the problem Pete,” Hanson replied. “You know the entire focus and entire stature of the Obama foreign policy was cringing capitulation, it was ‘America last’ — ‘what do you guys want, what can we give you’ — and it ended up making the world a much more dangerous place.”

“In that case they were actually talking about missile defense, so the security of the entire free world for any attack by any crazed person with missiles — which could have included the Russians — is being put at risk because Obama was willing to go ahead and bow down,” Hanson said.

“And now, the media at that point in time had nothing to say, now President Trump wants to have a less antagonistic relationship with the Russians, maybe get them to stop hurting us with North Korea, stop hurting us in Syria, and all of the sudden it’s the worst thing that ever happened,” he continued.

“It’s glaring hypocrisy,” Hanson concluded, to which Hegseth could only reply, “Absolutely it is, every single day of the week.”

When Obama and Clinton reached out and tried to make nice with Russia, they were applauded by the liberal media and establishment politicians on both sides of the aisle, even as Putin and Russia took full advantage of the naïve good faith extended by Obama and Clinton.

Now Trump is seeking to tone down the harsh rhetoric and smooth out the rough relationship between the U.S. and Russia and he has been attacked and smeared as some sort of Putin puppet that has sold out his own nation by the same folks who cheered similar efforts by Trump’s predecessors.

If that isn’t glaring hypocrisy, nothing is.
