Radical feminists constantly complain how awful anyone is who doesn’t buy into their agenda, calling them supporters of the imaginary “patriarchy” cooked up in their fantasy land.They also tend to drop all of their outrage over things like “slut shaming” and “fat shaming” when the target of such vitriol is a political opponent of theirs, like SNL recently did to Sarah Huckabee Sanders, daughter of Mike Huckabee.
The show featured a skit that clearly implied Sanders was fat and stupid, which, if feminists were consistent in their beliefs, should spark all kinds of angry outbursts and calls for an apology, yet strangely, all are silent on the matter.
Lifezette is reporting:
The latest episode of “Saturday Night Live” took on its usual targets: Sean Spicer, the White House press secretary (played by Melissa McCarthy), and President Donald Trump, played by Alec Baldwin. But the show also had Sarah Huckabee Sanders in its sights and used questionable means to mock the principal deputy White House press secretary.In a sketch that showed McCarthy’s Spicer retaking his podium at a press briefing, Huckabee is shown as clumsy and dumb, with a particularly over-the-top Southern accent. She’s also seen midway through the sketch, coming from backstage munching on an apple.
Her part in the sketch is small, but it’s clear what the messaging is: Huckabee is fat and dumb. Both her weight and her accent were the targets of “humor.” Even CNN’s Chris Cuomo felt the depiction of Huckabee went too far.
“I will say this — you guys were mean about Huckabee Sanders,” Cuomo said on Monday’s “New Day.” “You were fat-shaming her. You were talking about how she looks and what she wears. I thought that it was mean, not funny.”He added, “They had her eating. I thought it was in poor taste. I really did, but that’s me.” Cuomo’s has so far been a lone dissenting voice among a group of people who seem not to care about taste when it comes to criticizing conservatives.
Had conservatives mocked similar things about people in the Obama administration, the mainstream media would be talking about lines in the sand and screaming about political correctness.
The hypocrisy is strong with the left, a fact most already know, yet it doesn’t make seeing incidents like these any less frustrating.
Hey lefties: saying one thing and doing another, or believing that rights only apply to certain groups of people you see fit, isn’t going to do a good job of winning converts to your movement.
