If it often seems that twice-failed Democrat presidential nominee Hillary Clinton gets a free pass from the liberal media, it’s because she most certainly does.
During a Q&A session with Recode’s Kara Swisher, Clinton jokingly suggested that all black people “look alike” — a line that would likely have been a career-ender for any Republican. Her New York City audience, however, found it hilarious.
“they all look alike”
During a segment on civility and political correctness, Swisher brought up the recent encouragement of political incivility by prominent Democrats. But she confused Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ) with former Attorney General Eric Holder.
Booker had implored supporters to “get in the face” of Republican members of Congress, while Holder adapted former first lady Michelle Obama’s catch-phrase “When they go low, we go high” to instead declare, “When they go low, we kick ’em.”
“Cory Booker … saying, ‘Kick them in the shins?’” Swisher asked.
“Well, that was Eric Holder,” Clinton replied, and then added with a smile and to uproarious, if shocked, laughter from the audience, “I know they all look alike.”
“No, they don’t,” Swisher shot back defensively. Once she realized the joke, she added, “Oh, well done.”
Ironically, that crass and stereotypical joke came immediately after Clinton had just remarked on how “political correctness” was really just about being “polite,” and how everyone should avoid saying rude things that paint entire subgroups with a “broad brush.” (One can’t help but be reminded of when she infamously labeled “half of Trump’s supporters” as “deplorables” in 2016. But moving on…)
“What’s often called ‘political correctness’ is politeness. It’s not being rude and insulting to people. It’s respecting the diversity we have in our society,” Clinton explained to Swisher. “The Democratic Party is a much more diverse political party, attracting people who are African-American, Latino, LGBT.”
“I don’t think it’s politically correct to say we value that. And I don’t want to go around insulting people, painting people with a broad brush — every immigrant is this, every African-American is that, every other person with different religious beliefs or whatever — that’s childish,” she added — just prior to making a racist joke that painted all African-Americans with a broad brush.
Unsurprisingly, the liberal media has done little more than chuckle at Clinton’s racially stereotypical joke.
Now imagine what those same denizens of the liberal media would be doing today if President Donald Trump had said the exact same thing in the exact same way … we all know he’d be veritably crucified on the altar of political correctness.
