Liberals are some of the worst hypocrites in the world. When it comes to standing up for equality, women’s rights and freedom of speech, liberals have a blind spot when conservatives are subject to attacks that violate any of those principles.
The most recent instance of this liberal hypocrisy came after Democrat Congressman Cedric Richmond made a highly sexist joke about the picture of White House counselor Kellyanne Conway sitting with her feet feet on a couch in the Oval Office, The Daily Caller reported.
Richmond cracked a joke about Conway being on her knees, an obvious comparison to the Lewinsky scandal during the Bill Clinton years. While Richmond did eventually issue something that vaguely resembled an apology, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, a San Francisco Democrat, has refused to condemn the remark.
“She either was not telling the truth that she wasn’t aware of it, or it wasn’t important enough to her caucus that they would bring this to her attention,” Conway explained Sunday on Fox News.
“She had nothing to say about a Democratic congressman, a member of her caucus, issuing such a tasteless, sexist joke, which a lot of liberals in the room did not think was funny and brought to my attention immediately,” she stated.
The remarks by Richmond did receive bipartisan condemnation (even Chelsea Clinton condemned them), but the liberal media did very little with them, and many prominent feminists chose to simply stay quiet.

If Conway had been a liberal woman, you can bet dollars to donuts that Pelosi would have been on the front lines condemning this remark, organizing protests and reminding everyone that all men are terrible.
Instead, because Conway is a conservative, pro-life woman, the so-called “feminists” of the left are more than happy to simply ignore anything that happens to her — she isn’t a member of their club.
For people who have allegedly devoted themselves to advocating against discrimination, feminists like Pelosi certainly seem to do a lot of discriminating.
