Let’s think back a few short years ago and remember all the nasty, vile things that were said publically about George W. Bush. All of them were infantile insults and many of the people who uttered them are today invited to be guest speakers at colleges, universities and political events around the United States. Even today, Sarah Palin is to target of a great deal of irrational hatred from the peace-loving and tolerant left. (Note the sarcasm of those last five words.)
So, what happens when Barack Obama is on the receiving end of a few criticisms? Well, first he complains that people are talking about him “like a dog.” But then check out what happens if someone writes a private note with an insult or criticism:
|Luke Angel, 17, sent an angry email to the White House after watching a documentary about the September 11 attacks while drunk.
The FBI intercepted the email and contacted police in his home town of Silsoe, Bedfordshire.
Mr Angel has now been placed on a list of people banned from entering the US.
Mr Angel told the Bedfordshire On Sunday newspaper that he was unconcerned about the ban.
“I don’t really care. My parents aren’t very happy about it,” the paper quoted Mr Angel as saying.
“The police who came round took my picture and told me I was banned from America forever.”
Mr Angel told the newspaper he had called Mr Obama a “prick”, but he could not remember exactly what he had written because he was “drunk and high”.
A “prick.” During the 2008 election, Democrats were wearing tee-shirts that read: “Sarah Palin is a cunt.” None of them ever had any law-enforcement people come after them.
And neither Sarah Palin nor President Bush ever uttered one single word of complaint about any of it.
But a 17-year-old gets banned from the U.S, for hurting Obama’s feelings?
Barack Obama needs to grow up and put on his big-boy shorts. The Democrats need a consistent set of standards too.
