The Republican convention’s rowdy chants about Hillary Clinton -- “Lock her up!” – have caused liberal journalists to get extremely distressed. In their lead editorial on July 21, The Washington Post fulminated that Team Trump’s “descent from standard red-meat partisanship to unprecedented accusations of criminality displays contempt for the rule of law and a startling disinterest in fact and reason.”
That’s strong brew. It’s too bad for them that it’s completely false. Somehow, the Post writers are acting like they were born yesterday, or slept through the last Republican presidency. They’ve chosen to overlook that their liberal friends in news and entertainment were active participants in an eight-year anti-GOP hatefest.
