Hypocrisy seems to be the mantra of today’s democratic party. Whether it’s Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar, Bernie Sanders, Kamala Harris, they all seem to be extremely hypocritical. In fact, it seems that every leftist suffers from that same disease. There are millions of examples of missteps the left takes that they simply gloss over. Mistake number one has got to be Ocasio-Cortez’s Green New Deal. This monstrosity of a proposal is truly laughable. Economic sustainability for those unable or UNWILLING to work, the end of airplanes, and ridding the world of all cow farts. These are just some, SOME, of the most ridiculous propositions in her masterpiece. The funniest part is that even she knows the U.S. cannot pay for the GND. When Ocasio-Cortez launched the GND she had an FAQ launched with it and one of the questions, put simply, was how can we pay for this?. Her answer was that we can’t. “The level of investment required is massive. Even if every billionaire and company came together and were willing to pour all the resources at their disposal into this investment, the aggregate value of the investments they could make would not be sufficient,” she said. After Cortez launched the GND many of the top presidential candidates endorsed the proposal. The biggest names that gave their endorsement were Kirsten Gillibrand, Cory Booker, Bernie Sanders, and Kamala Harris.

Mistake number two has got to be the Jussie Smollett hate crime hoax. On January 22nd 2019 Smollett told the police he was attacked in what he believed was a hate crime because he is gay. The left immediately jumped to use Smollett’s attack as a political tool against Donald Trump and the Republican party. Leading presidential candidate Kamala Harris tweeted that the attack was a “modern day lynching”; she has since deleted that tweet. And when asked a few weeks later, once the hoax was ousted, Harris said she had no recollection of any tweet. It turns out Smollett staged the whole attack and orchestrated the whole thing as a political tool; but the left has already forgotten about that and are preparing for their next attack on conservatives.

The final mistake has got to be the Justin Fairfax scandal. Remember Brett Kavanaugh, guy who was vilified by the liberal media for being accused of sexual assault? Well, when the same thing happens to a democrat, the media is silent. When Fairfax was accused of assaulting a woman, no one said anything. When Fairfax reportedly said “F*** that B***h” about his accuser, no one on the left said anything. The double standard that the left has for its member and members of the Republican party is ridiculous and needs to stop.
