Hey, Leftists! Don’t be so ‘judgy’. You built this ‘Brave New World’ now live in it. That’s what you’ve been telling the rest of us to do. Those comments were over a decade ago, and really, ‘What difference, at this point, does it make?’
This brilliant article by D.C. McAllister sums up the thoughts of many Trump supporters, the hypocrisy of the Left and the army of useful idiots disguised as the ‘GOP elites’.
From the moment the tapes were made public, the drumbeat to Trump’s personal walk of shame began. Politicians who formerly endorsed him fled in terror, not wanting the soiled stain of sexual stigma attached to them. NeverTrumpers descended in holier-than-thou glee as they declared how noble and right they’ve always been not to support such a despicable man. And the left has been howling like puritanical wolves, condemning him for his immorality and sexist treatment of women.
I find this reaction to Trump’s private conversation rather ironic. It’s ironic coming from a secular culture that long ago declared objective morality dead. It’s ironic coming from politicos and media bottom-feeders who defended the abusive and disgusting behavior of Bill Clinton, not when he was a private citizen but when he was a sitting president.
It’s ironic coming from a Republican political elite that has told its religious base that social and moral issues don’t matter in politics. “It’s all about the economy, stupid. Leave your morals in the church but don’t voice them in the public square.”…
…If morality is relative to each individual—a purely subjective experience—by what standard are they judging Trump? Obviously, in such a secular climate, there can’t even be a “standard.”
Why should anyone listen to people who out of one side of their mouths declare the death of objective moral standards yet out of the other condemn someone for violating objective moral standards?
McAllister continues to discuss Clinton’s relationship with Lewinsky and how that has forever changed the role of morality in politics. Here is a portion the Address that President Clinton gave in August 1998:
As you know, in a deposition in January, I was asked questions about my relationship with Monica Lewinsky. While my answers were legally accurate, I did not volunteer information.
Indeed, I did have a relationship with Miss Lewinsky that was not appropriate. In fact, it was wrong. It constituted a critical lapse in judgment and personal failure on my part for which I am solely and completely responsible. . . . .I misled people, including even my wife. I deeply regret that.
Now, this matter is between me, the two people I love most–my wife and our daughter–and our God. I must put it right, and I am prepared to do whatever it takes to do so.
Nothing is more important to me personally. But it is private, and I intend to reclaim my family life for my family. It’s nobody’s business but ours.
Now, pay close to what he says next because it directly applies to what is happening with Trump, so much so that he should mimic the former president by using these very words in his own defense:
Even presidents have private lives. It is time to stop the pursuit of personal destruction and the prying into private lives and get on with our national life.
Our country has been distracted by this matter for too long, and I take my responsibility for my part in all of this. That is all I can do.
Now is the time — in fact, it is past time to move on.
We have important work to do — real opportunities to seize, real problems to solve, real security matters to face.
And so tonight, I ask you to turn away from the spectacle of the past seven months, to repair the fabric of our national discourse, and to return our attention to all the challenges and all the promise of the next American century.
Coupled with this defense of Clinton was the overall messaging that the moral absolutism of Christianity and any religious types who dared judge another person’s actions or character needed to exit the public stage. The only thing that was important was the progressive cultural and political agenda of the Democratic Party.
Yet the sanctimonious fools on the right have little-to-no sense to see this or how they’re playing into the hands of the left. Republicans have become mere pawns in the Democratic Party’s game of political power.
For years, the religious right was attacked and maligned from within the Republican Party. They were accused of being backward, stupid, moralistic boobs. Political elites were ashamed to share the same space with them on the public stage. They just wanted them to go away.
Well, they didn’t go away, but they did listen. If morality doesn’t matter in politics, then just elect someone who will at least stop the leftist juggernaut (or slow it down) even though he’s immoral, unprincipled, egotistical, and not really much of a conservative. And if he damages the GOP political elite in the process and takes a bit of the shine off of their arrogant crowns, so much the better. Voila, Donald Trump.

Bill Clinton said that Presidents have private lives, and they make mistakes.
He said his relationship with Monica was wrong, and the left has given him a pass because they loved his policies. It also enabled them to push forward a morally relativistic agenda. All his supporters embraced that agenda.
Embraced it, that is, until they needed to be outraged at morally-deficient Republican. And then? Morals suddenly MATTER again!
And right on cue, the Right, afraid to be tagged ‘-ists’ and ‘-phobes’ bleat right along with the others.
Sorry guys, you don’t get to have it both ways.
