“New questions tonight about a possible double standard when it comes to free speech…”
That’s how Fox News host Megyn Kelly began a “Kelly File” segment Tuesday night about liberal reaction to a “Hamilton” cast member lecturing Vice President-elect Mike Pence following Friday night’s presentation of the popular Broadway play.
Kelly played several clips of liberal commentators defending the “Hamilton” cast, some of whom actually praised the confrontation, calling it ”respectful.”
How quickly they forget—as Kelly pointed out.
“But remember back in 2013 when Dr. Ben Carson was openly critical of President Obama at the National Prayer Breakfast? We heard very different reactions back then.”
Double standard? Of course. Hypocrisy? You make the call.
By the way, you can hit this Saturday’s 8:00 p.m. Broadway presentation of “Hamilton” — Orchestra Floor Center — for ticket prices starting at $952—hardly within the budget of the average American of whom liberal elites are so concerned.
