I know, I know, I just wrote on double standards not that long ago, but it’s happening again. There really isn’t much to say about this one as it’s pretty much self explanatory. Remember Senator Barbara Boxer’s rant against Brigadier General Michael Walsh? No spin, no opinion, just the facts:
During a hearing before her Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works, she scolded the Brigadier General for, of all things, calling her “ma’am” instead of “senator.” Apparently she was offended by it. He started to answer one of her questions by saying “ma’am” but didn’t get to finish his statement, she interrupted with:
“You know, do me a favor. Could you say ‘senator’ instead of ‘ma’am? It’s just a thing, I worked so hard to get that title, so I’d appreciate it, yes, thank you.”
According to the guide Military Protocol: Uniformed Services General Walsh was perfectly respectful in addressing her as ma’am, something he would do for someone of a higher rank than himself. For her to spew such an invective and scold him in public like she did was very disrespectful and showed no class. And as the future would show, it’s not something she’s consistent in demanding. One wonders why she would demand to be called Senator by the Brigadier General but not this next gentleman.
During an Environmental Public Works Committee meeting on “green” jobs, there is an exchange between Senator Barbara Boxer and chairman of the National Black Chamber of Commerce, Harry Alford. Rush Limbaugh summed up the exchange (which I will post shortly) this way:
Now, let me translate here what’s happening. The National Black Chamber of Commerce is not all sold on this “green” energy business, and Barbara Boxer at the Environment and Public Works Committee, a hearing on “green” jobs, starts quoting all these other black groups while the witness at the time is the chairman of the National Black Chamber of Commerce, Harry Alford. So she starts talking about the CEO of 100 Black Men of Atlanta and then the NAACP support, and how vital that is, and this guy’s offended by this. He said, “Other groups over me, other blacks over me? Why don’t you talk about Asians? It’s racial.” She’s clearly stunned by this, Barbara Boxer is not used to people calling her a racist.
Now, regardless of the topic and the racial overtones of her talking points, I want you to watch the video and count how many times he called her ma’am, and then count how many time she demanded he call her senator instead.
By my count, he addressed her 4 times as “ma’am” instead of Senator, something she was previously upset about in the hearing with the Brigadier General. So why the double standard? I’m telling you, and I’ve been telling you, liberals are always showing their true colors. Always showing these double standards. Stay posted to my blogs, there’s bound to be more of the same and I will keep showing liberals for what they are.
