The liberal media doesn’t want to intentionally hurt anyone (unless you’re a conservative). Caring about the feelings of liberals is almost a fulltime job. We don’t want to shock or upset any particular group, especially if that group is Hillary Clinton supporters.
At the Republican National Convention there was no shortage of anti-Hillary buttons and pins. In an effort to spare the feelings of liberals who may have been watching, MSNBC talking heads warned their viewers that there may be buttons with slogans that they might find offensive.
For example, slogans like “Hillary for Prison” and ““Vote no to Monica’s ex-boyfriend’s wife in 2016” were for sale at the convention and worn proudly by conservatives in attendance.
That’s right, we don’t want to offend anyone through the creative use of the English language. But back in 2008 things were different, news anchor Keith Olbermann accused George W. Bush of “murderous deceit” and told the Republican to “shut the hell up.” In 2016, the always opinionated, Chris Matthews, said that Ted Cruz “operates below the level of human life.” But that couldn’t be offensive to anyone.
2016, MSNBC warned viewers, “You may find it uncomfortable. And so, you may not want to look at this stuff. But these are some of the pins that are being sold at the venue.”
Young Conservatives reports:
If you get offended by a button, it might be time to reevaluate some things in your life.
The people that call Republicans terrorists and routinely say horrible things about the right, are squeamish about campaign pins.
A ridiculous double standard yes.
But also, a revealing glimpse into the mindset of the left.
Supreme intolerance like you will never see anywhere else.
They can’t even bring themselves to look at something they disagree with or something that might use some bad language.
There is definitely a connection between that attitude and the rise of Trump.
