When notable Republicans get into trouble, liberals never stop talking about whatever happened.
The same rules don’t apply when it comes to the Democrats and Anthony Weiner’s sex scandal.
CNN Politics editor-at-large Chris Cillizza recently called on his readers to stop talking about the Weiner sex scandal.
“Can we now stop talking about Anthony Weiner? Like, forever?” Cillizza begged in the headline of the piece.
Rather than promote discussion about a discussion-worthy topic, Cillizza wants to silence it.
“Let’s not get back on that ride. No matter what he says or how much remorse he expresses, it’s clear that attention fuels Weiner. It’s his lifeblood. So let’s not give it to him,” he wrote.
“He’s an example of a bad apple that makes politicians — and, to be honest, people — look bad,” Cillizza wrote. And by “people” he means Democrats, of course.
Conservative Tribune reports:
There are many reasons why Cillizza would want everyone to stop talking about Weiner and it’s hard to think of a good one.
Democrats would probably like everyone to just forget about the fact that Weiner has some rather disturbing connections to former Democrat presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, as Weiner’s soon-to-be ex-wife Huma Abedin was one of Clinton’s most trusted advisers.
It’s no secret that if a Republican had done the disgusting things Weiner did, CNN and the liberal media would have wall-to-wall coverage for weeks. If President Donald Trump’s habit of eating two scoops of ice cream while everyone else at the table got one scoop deserves CNN’s media attention, an actual crime by a prominent Democrat politician certainly deserves at least the same treatment.
Weiner is a slimy man, there is no denying that. What he did is disgraceful, but his actions need to be discussed because we need our politicians to know that there are consequences for bad behavior.
Liberals always try to take the high road, acting like they are bastions of purity, like modern gods, but if Weiner’s shortcomings show us anything, it is that they are just as human as the rest of us mere mortals.
