    The one-sided code of conduct

    I am discussing the code of conduct and the code of conduct only. If something in the article trips your trigger, please feel free to discuss it in the other two thousand threads provided for your viewing pleasure.

    Article

    “Please understand that a lot of what the right does, and it’s maybe their greatest genius, is they’ve created a code of conduct that they police, that they themselves don’t have to, in any way, abide,” Stewart said. “Don’t get caught in a trap of thinking you can live up to a code of integrity that will be enough for the propagandist right. There isn’t. And so, create your own moral code to live by, but don’t be fooled into trying to make concessions that you think will mollify them.”
    The left needs to stop answering to the right. The right isn't even answering to the right. We need to STOP throwing people under the bus because THEY say so. Al Franken immediately springs to mind.

    Here's my equivalency: If someone on the right has done it (or similar) and it was no harm, no foul? Then don't judge the person on the left.

    For instance? I will not tolerate the 4,528,936th rehash of the Clinton marriage, because Trump.

    I won't hear shit about Obama being gay and Michelle being a man, because it's disgusting. There's really nothing to compare it to on the right. #GEEIWONDERWHY.

    You can zip it on Hillary forevermore, and I'd be happy to provide specifics. Because I personally am well beyond done with the left being held to a higher standard.

    Done.

    I see people in the old thread claiming it goes both ways.

    It doesn't.

    Interesting article.

    Certainly red meat for the Left.

    I love it. You are right. The whole ideal of acting with restraint while the opposition takes the lowest of all low roads is wrong-minded and also a stupid approach to politics.

    For the good of our country which is under siege, we have to tell our Reps in Washington to play hardball. To call out every single lie, conspiracy, insult to intelligence, and especially every assault on our Constitution and on common decency.

    The GOP en mass is either complicit or silent as Trump and company crashes and burns our democracy.

    Grow a pair!! Say it louder and more often.

    Here's a very strong 'for instance.'

    Benghazi vs The Tongo Tongo Ambush

    I didn't even know that's what it was called, it got so little attention. The only media attention it got was Trump showing his ass at one of the widows.

    But oh, Benghazi!

    Fuck that noise. Four dead again, nobody gives a shit? Partisan assholery at its finest.

    I never turn my back on a Trump-fluffer.

    In continuing to bend over backwards to remain civil and sound smart, the MSM and the Left came up with the phrase "false equivalency". There is NO EQIVALENCY--period. None. ZIP. Pick a subject. Corruption, deceit, money, greed, dark money, WARS and execution of, deficts, job growth, market gains, crowd sizes, family vacations, golf outings, electoral counts or VOTES!

    Who the fuck are we kidding? And what do they tell their children? Lie, manipulate, steal, don't read, pick their own facts, trash people, tell them their teachers are overpaid union slugs not to be listened to? Their professors are left wing tenured slugs there to foist subversive thinking into their minds? What DO these people tell their kids?

    There is no equivalency. Period.

    That is not what the left says. It is, however, the opposite of what the right says about them, and is also what the right says about itself.
