Modern politics exists today as little more than the tribalistic application of double-standards.

How to describe Democrats and double-standards?
They're like white on rice.
Like peas and carrots.
Like pigs in…well, you get the idea.
The Democrat Party is full of contradictions, such as President Obama, the head of one of the most opaque administrations in our modern times, constantly prattling on about how very transparent his government is.
Or assuring us that voter fraud doesn't exist, and then doing all that they can to block each and every measure put forward to help detect and prevent such fraud.
But this election season, they've kicked it up a notch. Or five.
During the final presidential debate, when Donald Trump refused to pre-concede the election, Democrats and the media obsessed for days over how Trump was "undermining our democracy." Of course, rigging the primary to ensure Hillary's nomination doesn't undermine our democracy at all, and a political party that busses people around from polling place to polling place on election day helps to keep our democracy intact.
One of this election's big October surprises was a video from 2005 of a lewd conversation between Donald Trump and TV personality Billy Bush. Democrats, of course, were consumed with righteous indignation. Michelle Obama gave a blistering speech, wherein she said that Donald Trump's words had "shaken me to my core in a way that I couldn't have predicted." She went on to say this, in the same speech:
The shameful comments about our bodies. The disrespect of our intellect. The belief that you can do anything you want to a woman? It it cruel. It's frightening. And the truth is it hurts.
Though, as many have pointed out since then, this is the same Michelle Obama who took her daughters to a Jay-Z concert, where they would be exposed to lyrics at least as bad, if not worse, than anything Donald Trump said.
This is fairly typical of the Left's response: if the culture they steep themselves in should manifest itself on the other side of the aisle, IT'S THE MOST HORRIBLE THING IN THE WORLD…EVER!
The emails leaked by Wikileaks have provided a treasure trove of evidence of the Democrats' corruption…and what do they do with one of the most corrupt politicians on the face of the Earth? Why, they make her their presidential nominee, of course!
And don't you dare perpetuate the EVIL LIES in those clearly fabricated emails...in fact, reading them at all might just be criminal, because they were STOLEN!
Just last week, after the revelation that the FBI is continuing to investigate Hillary Clinton, Clinton herself called for more transparency from the FBI…That's right, a demand for more transparency from the former Secretary of State who used a private email server to hide her pay-for-play scheme, and then had her minions wipe the server (like, with a cloth!), destroy evidence in a federal investigation, and take a hammer to her mobile devices. If anyone in this world knows (the opposite of) transparency, it's Hillary Clinton.
Sing it with me:
No no - no - no no - no no no no - no - no - no - no - no - no no - no no - no no
Nobody can do CORRUPTION like Hillary Clinton.
Nobody can do MANIPULATION like Hillary Clinton.
Nobody should go to PRISON like Hillary Clinton.
Modern politics exists today as little more than the tribalistic application of double-standards: "If my side does it, that's okay, but if your side does, then it's an outrage!" All hatred is subjective, depending entirely on party preference…and in 2016, they've take it to a whole new level.
