The reason every profanity and threat toward President Donald Trump was applauded by the same people who are now having a breakdown over "let's go Brandon" is not hypocrisy. Same goes for anything they criticize or defend — protesting, violence, critical reporting, legislation. When it's their side, it's "truth to power." When it's the other side, it's "authoritarianism" and "terrorism." It's not hypocrisy, it's intentional and tactical, BlazeTV host Allie Beth Stuckey argued on a recent episode of "Relatable."
Allie noted a recent article in The Washington Post lamenting the "increasingly vulgar taunts" Trump supporters are supposedly hurling at President Joe Biden.
"[I]t's clear that after nine months in office, Biden — or at least what he represents — is increasingly becoming an object of hatred to many Trump supporters," the Washington Post article claimed.
"The current eruption of anti-Biden signs and chants, however, is on another level, far more vulgar and widespread," the article added, going on to bemoan a "proliferation of chants in recent weeks, both of 'Let's go Brandon!' — now used as a stand-in by the Trump faithful — and the more vulgar original, sometimes shorthanded as 'FJB'."
Allie noted that the authors fail to talk about why people might be angry or upset with the current president, and instead focus on "Trump supporters" and 'the Trump faithful."
"[The authors] leave the impression that the only reason people could be mad at Joe Biden is 'because Trump.' It's always still 'because Trump'. These people are obsessed with Trump," Allie stated.
"This is not really hypocrisy. This is what these journalists and activists do, they actually apply these principles consistently," she argued. "It's okay to harm and harass people that you don't like. It is not okay to harm or harass or even criticize people that you do like ... you are not allowed to disagree with the people they hoist up as political heroes. That's the rule."
