Biden Must Fire Psaki

Progressives demand that conservatives practice tolerance — at all times — and if they dare to say or post anything on social media that strays from politically correct speech, then they risk being “canceled” from society. The offender may lose their jobs and livelihoods, get blacklisted in Hollywood or be run out of corporate America.

Roseanne Barr is one such example. In 2018, her hit TV show, “Roseanne,” was abruptly canceled by ABC following a controversial tweet directed at a former Obama administration adviser. But that’s just the tip of the iceberg — if you’re a libertarian like Barr or lean right.

It’s commonplace that if you’re a professional athlete or play college sports, you risk being booted from your sports leagues over one bad tweet or post. And for nonathletes, one may be kicked out of college or see their hard-won acceptance to an Ivy League university revoked no matter how long ago the offensive transgression transpired. It doesn’t matter if you were a young, immature teenager.

If you’re a conservative, then your life and reputation could be permanently tarnished.

But that’s not the only penalty. If any conservative posts a homophobic or transphobic slur, for example, they will be swiftly banned from Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, Instagram and other Big Tech platforms — possibly forever. Good riddance!

However, apparently, if you hold a top position in the Biden administration, you’re permitted to tweet homophobic smears against U.S. Senator Lindsay Graham — and suffer no consequences. Talk about a rigged system!

In a recently unearthed tweet from last August, Biden’s liberal press secretary Jen Psaki — a former CNN contributor — tweeted, “Only in 2020 does #LadyG get to push a bunch of debunked conspiracy theories while questioning @SallyQYates (aka an American hero).”

Psaki mocked Graham’s sexual identity and harassed him, actions that unequivocally violate Big Tech’s terms of service. Others who commit similar offensive acts face suspension of their accounts or worse, being de-platformed by these networks. Biden’s spokeswoman also spread a conspiracy theory that Graham is a cross-dressing homosexual despite his public statements saying otherwise. Back in 2018, following a homophobic slur by another liberal, Chelsea Handler, Graham told a TMZ reporter: “She knows zero about me. To the extent that it matters, I’m not gay.”

So, at minimum, Psaki spread fake news about Graham’s sexual orientation while appearing to shame and bully the GOP lawmaker “out of the closet,” despite it being none of her business — or anyone else’s for that matter — what is his sexual preference or identity. Make no mistake. Graham’s sexuality isn’t the issue. Who he chooses to love, and how he chooses to identify, is his prerogative.

The issue is the appalling double standard and hypocrisy in America today. Conservatives and libertarians are held to completely different standards than progressives. It’s an unfair and unequal system that’s tearing apart the fabric of our nation.

Here’s what should happen: Psaki should be held to the same standards as all Americans. Twitter and other social media should shut her accounts like they do to others, and President Joe Biden should issue a statement condemning her homophobic tweets while announcing her replacement. Or Biden’s press secretary should apologize to Lindsay Graham and be given a second chance in the court of public opinion — as should all Americans guilty of offensive speech. If the Biden administration truly seeks to unify the country, it cannot perpetuate this arbitrary system that punishes some for speech that’s repugnant and not others based on political affiliation.

That’s an irrefutable form of discrimination.

Bottom line: Until progressives practice tolerance and hold members of their own party to the same standards as others, they have lost the moral authority needed to lead the nation.

    1. She is a complete disaster !!!!!Every time she comes on, I quickly get the remote if there are children in the room.
      She seems to have a “potty-mouth”, doesn’t she????????? I guess she thinks she is cute. NO

  1. Yes, she should be fired. As an individual, under the 1st amendment, she can say almost anything she wants to say. However, when you accept and begin to perform as a public official, new rules apply. Her comment is certainly inconsistent with the inclusionary policy of the Biden administration. Poor decision on her part; poor decision/choice (possibly) on the administration’s part…..bottom line, poor showing of unity, irregardless of partisan politics.

        1. From day 1 I thought Jen Psaki was terrible. She needs to go as soon as possible.

          Keyleigh McEnany was the BEST. I wish her nothing but success in her life, she deserves it.

      1. We may need to circle back on this, and then fire her. But what can you expeck from this administration. 🤔 probably gonna get worse

        1. In bidden-Newspeak “Circle-Back” means typical Demospeak “mostly peaceful Conflagrations” (AKA f’ing-witch-with-a-B has different rules since orange-woman is leftist)

  2. Didn’t she send $600K to Nigeria in one of those SCAMS almost “everyone” has been sent saying they are holding millions and all you need to do is send money and she sent $600K???!!! IS THIS SOMEONE TO BE “FIT” to sit on BIDENS cabinet? Oh forgot all they need do is pay Joe $90K for each cabinet position QUALIFIED or NOT!!!!

  3. Her performance thus far leaves something to be desired. It’s clear she has a chip on her shoulder the size of the universe and it shows. Her tough chick act isn’t at all attractive and her condescending attitude even less. I guess the Biden administration can’t find qualified candidates so he accepts or seeks out less than professional folks to fill these positions. Of course, we all know, that Biden is not the one making the decisions he has his handlers doing that and that’s extremely disturbing as well. One more snarky comment from her and she should be out on her ear clearly she is not up to the task to handle her job.

  4. WORST PRESS SEC, EVER She doesn’t answer questions, circles around, and she is not up on what the hell is going on. If Biden has any faculties left he will fire her.

  5. Actually she is just right for the job…Biden’s aimless and chaotic administration really needs an ill mannered huckster as a front man. She thinks she is the master of the press room but she comes off looking like an incompetent idiot—Oh wait, that’s because if she looks like an incompetent idiot that gives China Joe’s communist regime ‘plausible deniability’—Now I get it.

  6. No such word as “Prerogative”. The word is “Perogative”. To all posters, especially journalists, please proofread your stuff before finalizing your post. It’ll look more credible and intelligent.

    1. Everyone knows what the person meant. I guess everyone else needs to step it up to reach your level of arrogance and superiority.

  7. Let’s see how the republicans are going to let them treat them now. Stop being the doormat and stand for your beliefs. Stop being scared of Nancy Pelosi Chuck Schumer and maxi waters and the rest of the bullies on the Democratic side. Everyone can be replaced and we really need to se a limit on the years they stay in Congress because the greedy power of that money is killing them and the American people

    1. Guess: (Let’s see how republicans let them treat now) They were “a-skeered” of the leftist Nan-Chuck regime BEFORE they had corrupt Chinajoe’s backing. I’m going to guess (no pun intended) no spinal growth post-President Trump.
