When the father and mother of a Muslim U.S. soldier who died in Iraq took to the stage last week at the Democratic National Convention to denigrate Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump over his tough stance against unfettered immigration and radical Islamic terrorism, the liberal media rejoiced.
When Trump responded later with some criticisms of his own regarding the father, Khizr Khan, the liberal media pounced, calling it “horrifying” and the worst thing ever, even for Trump,
But as as Breitbart points out, a little more than a week before the now-highly touted speech from Khan, a speech had been delivered at the Republican National Convention by the mother of one of the victims of the 2012 Benghazi terrorist attack, Pat Smith, who holds former secretary of State and Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton responsible for her son’s untimely death.
That speech was not highly touted by the media, instead drawing all sorts of rebukes and dismissals, calling it “scary,” “crossing the line,” a “new degradation of politics,” even “really disturbing.”
One liberal writer essentially threatened to kill Smith following her speech, and the media went out of their way to defend and distance Clinton from a previous response to Smith’s assertion, which was to pretty much call her a liar.
So why does the media harp on Trump for responding to criticism from the sad parent of a dead hero, but gave Clinton a pass for doing the exact same thing?
I think we all know why, which is precisely the reason this particular election is so important. The media have given Clinton a pass on virtually everything she has ever done wrong, and will continue to do so if she should happen to win the presidency and preside over the country from the White House.
Please share this on Facebook and Twitter to help remind everyone of the blatant double standard by which the liberal media treats Donald Trump versus Hillary Clinton.
