Here we have another union thug acting out a desire for violence. This time it’s Donna Dewitt, the President of the South Carolina AFL-CIO (a grand title for a chief thug, eh?), using a baseball bat to smack a piñata sporting the face of S.C. Gov. Nikki Haley on it.
Now, imagine, folks, if these were Republicans using a ball bat on an effigy of a Democrat Gov. — and a female one at that. This story would be the story of the day all over the news and would go on for weeks at a time. We’d never hear the end of it from the Old Media.
Democrats do it… and crickets.
In fact, if this was a video of Republicans doing such a thing, the GOP candidate for president would be tarred with their actions. Right now we’d be hearing calls from every last Democrat, every last member of the media (but I repeat myself) for Governor Mitt Romney to disavow this violence.
Again. Democrats do it…. and crickets.
Remember back when all Sarah Palin did was put the icon of a target on a map of targeted districts during the 2010 election? Remember how that became a symbol in the Old Media of the “violence” being urged by those evil Republicans? Well, here we have a ball bat being used on the face of a female Governor and… yep, crickets.”
Additionally, this is violence being acted out on a female politician. Again, imagine if Republicans were being so sexist against a female Democrat. That is yet another angle that Democrats would include in their lies about the so-called “Republican war on women.”
Democrats do it… more crickets.
If you ever wanted to see an example of the double standard of the Old Media establishment, this is one.
This video was originally posted by Becci Robbins, the communications director for the SC Progressive Network. I captured it just in case they try to send the video down the Internet memory hole.
