Default A political double standard

Just today, on Fox News' program, The Fox News Specialists, Eric Bolling pointed out a glaring double standard: The left loudly decries any poor-taste criticism of a sitting Democratic president; yet it defends as "free speech" anything (that is even worse!) as concerning a sitting Republican president.

Cases in point: In 2013, a rodeo clown wore an Obama mask; and he was summarily dismissed from the rodeo circuit.

Yet when a play in New York, Julius Caerar--which depicts a Trump-like character's being stabbed to death--sees the withdrawal of multiple sponsors, why, the left--including The New York Times--is practically apoplectic: https://www.nytimes.com/2017/06/11/a...esar.html?_r=0

Does anyone else see a double standard here?

Of course there is a double standard here.

What I want to know is how much money George Soros dumped on the Democratic party to get that double standard.

Of course those lefties will deny this.

Dump stupid azz hurt Democrats are worthless as tits on a boar hawg.

Don't forget the bloody severed head and the proclamation that Trump is Putin's holster. Then there is the "comedic" suggestion of incest. Perfunctory condemnations are followed by full throated insistence on free speech rights.
