Two Standards

Are better than one. According to leftists.

Iowa’s Rep. Steve King (R) compared Syrian refugees to grapes the other day

“My wife said this morning, ‘If you had 100 grapes and you knew that two of them were fatally poisonous, would you sit there and eat the grapes until one of them killed you? Or would you decide, I’m not going to take that bunch of grapes at all?’ That’s what we’re dealing with here with the Syrian refugees.”

Causing the leftosphere to lose its collective shit

I’ll take King at his word that it was his wife saying this. Mostly because it is more likely she has been beaten over the head with the very similar and very popular feminist trope about “men” and M&M’s (that “if you had a bowl of M&M’s and were told that 10 of them were poison, would you eat them anyway?”).

So, it is OK for women in comfortable shoes who spend $0 per year on shaving cream and razors to disparage an entire gender, but if someone with an (R) after their name uses the same idea to speak against possible taxpayer funded terrorist infiltration, it is over the line.

Remember that the left not only wants to redistribute your money, they want to redistribute you standards so that they can have two.

One Response to Two Standards

  1. It’s been impossible for Right and Left to talk civilly for quite some time now, because one’s political opinions are now taken as indicative of one’s intelligence and / or his motives. Your opponent no longer makes the benevolent assumption that you might merely be misinformed, or that you might have made a correctable error in your reasoning. Without that assumption, every political argument starts as an ad hominem war of personalities. It can’t get better from there.
