Friday, December 04, 2020

Idaho Lt. Gov. Janice McGeachin accepted $314,727 under the Paycheck Protection Program, a federal coronavirus relief program, records show. Three months later, she wrote an op-ed published in newspapers across the state criticizing those who accept "handouts" and other "unearned income."

Of course. The GOP is the party of hypocrites. That was clear with all the medicare recipients marching to opposing government provided health insurance in 2010.

The GOnP is the party of hypocrisy. (R)tards are always the first ones with their hands out.

Yep, no hypocrites on the left. Gov Newsom, Mayor of Chicago, Mayor OF SF, Pelosi, Feinstein, Assembly member in LA, Mayor of Austin, Mayor of Denver, Mayor of DC, and the list goes on. Look them all up and see how they make the rules for everyone else to follow except them. Biggest hypocrites are always on the left. Do as I say, not as I do.

This story isn't about any of them. You want to discuss them then feel free to post a story about them.
Now tell us how you feel about McGeachin bad mouthing business owners for doing the exact same thing she did.

It's an essential pillar of Trumpism that if you can find anyone on the other side who has done something bad, Trump and your side get to do something bad.

That's not good enough. I want Republicans to stand for something because that helps everyone to stand for something.

This whole "enabling thing" just sailed right over your head, didn't it?

Stop helping bad people. It makes you a bad person.

I guess this story proves my point. Look at all the dems (including Danni) on this site who will rip on this lady for speaking out of both sides of her mouth, it is wrong, but will not just not speak against the Dems who do this, but will defend all of them. Look at all the names that I put down.

What she did is wrong. She should not have come out and spoke against it after taking the money offered to her.

You didn't have a point. All you did was have a deflection and now you are just conjecturing. The truth is democrats get criticized on this site all the time. You want to make a point then post a story and see if no one criticizes Dems for whatever behavior it is that is bothering you.

"Look at all the names that I put down."

Then start a thread about them with some sort of evidence to backup your accusations. Otherwise your post will just be ignored as it should be.

Danni, backup my accusations. WOW, don't you live in reality world. Google each their names and you will see exactly what they did and their hypocrisy, which is what this thread is about. The problem is that all, if not all very close, the politicians are hypocrites and we let them get away with it unless we vote them out, but the libs on this site only look to the right and ignore those on the left that do the exact same thing. Which proves my point that the biggest hypocrites are sheep on the left.

Oh good another "both sides" moron.

Tell me, when did the left abandon all their ethics and morals to become the cult of a lying dangerous nariccisistic racist moronic con man?

When did the left elect a leader who tolerates putin putting bounties on heads of US soldiers?

Who does the left try to prevent from voting?

Why don't the klan and neo nazis love the left like they love trump's cult if they do the exact same things?

Rich republicans do what they can to make poor people feel like they should never accept handouts and all the while they get larger ones.

"Google each their names and you will see exactly what they did and their hypocrisy, which is what this thread is about."

You made the accusations so you get to do the googling. If you want credibility here then you post links to back up your claims, when you don't then people like me will just ignore you. Keep pushing it you will get plonked.

No one opposes handouts. In fact. Everyone loves getting gifts.

They just don't want handouts going to any poor, non Christian, non white Americans.

Please don't plonk me, Danni, I would be so bummed. All those names did what they did and they all are a perfect example of hypocrisy on the left. These have taken place in the past month or so. I will give you one example, which one do you want so you don't think I am cherry picking.

Flimflam, please provide links to all the stories that you quoted, so that we can see that Dems' examples of hypocrisy are worse than this latest callous example by the GOP

This is a common phenomenon.

There have been lengthy pieces written on this, where diehard righties will turn on a dime in their opinions of handouts depending on whether they or "other" people are getting them.

"Handouts" is a propaganda term
