The left is keeping with the worst of its tendency to resort to labeling Republicans as racist or bigoted when they say something they don’t agree with, and yet remains silent when their own says something insensitive. Most recently, it’s going after Rep. Paul Ryan for this comment made during an interview:
We have got this tailspin of culture, in our inner cities in particular, of men not working and just generations of men not even thinking about working or learning the value and the culture of work, and so there is a real culture problem here that has to be dealt with.
Ryan has since apologized.
Imagine what the left would say if Ryan visited one of those inner cities, accepted a gift of food from a child prepared by the child’s family, and later told a Wall Street Journal reporter that it was food that “could gag a maggot.”
From what I can find, there’s been absolutely no condemnation of the EPA chief Gina McCarthy’s remarks from the culturally sensitive, non-racist left.
Alaska state Rep. Doug Isaacson, a Republican from North Pole, offered a resolution on the House floor condemning the EPA chief’s remarks and calling for her dismissal. He withdrew it due to technicalities but plans on reintroducing the resolution.
