Do As I Say
The first cause of the Liberal Left is always tolerance — tolerance of any who agrees with them, that is. Anyone who disagrees is so undermining to the Left’s agenda as to be intolerable. Or, in Hillary Clinton’s vernacular, “deplorable.”
People on the Left are tolerant of only those in agreement with their positions. Their opponents deserve to be persecuted and ostracized.
This produces Rep. Maxine Waters' calls for verbal and mob attacks on conservatives. Similarly, the political elite of the Left excuse themselves for their hypocritical, do-as-I-say, not-as-I-do actions as acceptable because of their inherent elitism.
They truly believe that they are better and thus deserving of the special dispensation only afforded to elites.
This inherent failing of the liberal Left is why we see Bernie Sanders demanding an increase in the national minimum wage (that he wasn’t even giving his own campaign staff) but being forced to raise wages and cut hours to pay for it.
Then there's Obama telling the world that a person can have too much, while he and his wife gain a net worth over $100 million and purchase a $15 million mansion in Martha’s Vineyard.It is why the Left wants to confiscate guns from everyday people while employing armed security guards. They build walls and live in bubbles of security but argue against a border wall.
It is why they argue against a parent having the right to choose the best school for their child while the leftist elites enroll their children in the best schools they can find.
The Left rails against money in political campaigns while raising hundreds of millions of dollars for their campaigns.
That is why Warren, Sanders, Biden, Obama, and others have no problem amassing wealth while demonizing others who are successful. I have no problem with these folks being wealthy or successful. I have a problem with their continued personal use and exploitation of the free market system for themselves, while trying to prevent everyone else from having the same opportunities.
