The President of the United States is a hypocrite--plain and simple. Harsh words perhaps, but true nonetheless. He gets in front of the American people and lectures us on civility and healthy discourse, he calls to offer support to 30 year old Sandra Fluke who has the nerve to expect others to pay for her sex life, and he says that he has his daughters in mind when taking a stand against the degradation of women.
However, where is he when liberals refer to conservative women in all kinds of disgusting, vile terms? Does he not remain silent when Bill Maher, for example, repeatedly and profusely demeans women. Has he called any of these conservative women as he did Ms. Fluke? Where's his outrage in these instances? Did he not say he had great concern for his daughters? Is his concern, like his outrage, selective?
Bill Maher has fixated on Governor Palin, referring to her and her family members in terms that ought to disgust every person, and certainly should disgust President "Mr. Civility" Obama. Were he not a hypocrite he would return the million dollars Maher made sure to inform everyone he donated to Obama's campaign. That would be the right thing to do. What person of character accepts a donation from a donor who is a blatant misrepresentation of all things human? President Obama has not returned a dime, and his press secretary, Jay Carney, was incoherent and evasive in his attempt to skirt the issue, while President Obama just ignored the question altogether.
Today, ShePAC released the following video. It shows that many on the left, including President Obama, do indeed condemn sexism and misogyny--except when a woman on the right, like Governor Palin, is the object of that sexism and misogyny. In that case, all bets are off. This is the epitome of hypocrisy, and the President is leading the charge. The video opens with this:
ALL SHOULD FIND THE FOLLOWING VIDEO OFFENSIVE
TAKE A STAND WITH US
Be advised: the warning is correct. You really will be offended--unless you're a hypocrite who only gets offended when Democrats are demeaned.
