Trump-sympathetic conservatives suddenly offended that Hillary attacked Trump

Is Hillary Clinton bringing down the tone of the campaign to Trump-like levels?

That’s the concern—the “bullshit”, I add, since this is 2016—concern raised by John Sexton of HotAir.com. After Twitter Trump attacked Clinton for receiving President Obama’s endorsement, Clinton’s account tweeted, “Delete your account,” at Trump. A funny and non-threatening dis to a man who has proven time and time again that the world would be a better place if he didn’t tweet?

No, to John Sexton, Clinton’s tweet was a “3 word put-down could have come from Trump himself,” and that “Clinton has sunk to his level.” (Incidentally, he’s probably wrong about that; Trump’s tweets and speeches are long-winded and self-referential.)

Sexton looks to the future and bemoans what he sees as a biased liberal media that will excuse Clinton’s terribly offensive response to Trump while blaming Trump for having lowered the discourse to a level that includes references to “losers,” “bimbos,” and allegations of murder against his opponent:

What this campaign is really going to be is months of back and forth insults with each side taking shots at the other. And yet, Trump will consistently be blamed for bringing down the tone of the campaign even as Clinton is praised for toughness. As in every election, the Republican has to fight a two front war, one against the other candidate and one against the media.

Oh, boo hoo if Tantrum Trump has to take responsibility for his tirades! He called an American judge “Mexican” and said a “Mexican” judges shouldn’t be allowed to preside over his case, and now he’s being called racist! Why isn’t Judge Curiel, or Hillary, getting blamed for Trump’s comments?! #LiberalBias

There’s a simple way to stop this protest madness at the Universities

Barely a month since I came back after a short trip to Oxford, I read about Yale students protesting against their English courses; the courses being too colonial and White. The organisers of this movement, are helped and organized by a faculty professor, newly appointed, named Dr Jill Richards, her claim to fame is having done pioneering research on Queer resistance cells during Second World war and attending a “Commie camp”.

Without pointing out the statistically insignificant effect of any Queer resistance cells anywhere in any time, affecting the broader geopolitics, it is ironic that she rallies and encourages students against the same “Western civilization” which fought against the epitome of state terrors in both Marxist and Nazi societies, when they were systematically killing people on the basis of their freedom of speech and sexuality. But there’s a broader significance in all of it.

In Mizzou, the protesters were aided and their rage channelized by Professors, notable among them is the now discredited Dr Melissa Click, herself with post-structural far-leftist sympathies. In this side of the pond, the BBC’s new Midsummer Night’s Dream is unashamedly edited and altered in the light if the narrative of a director with a distinct and vocal social agenda. White lecturers cannot attend equality conference, simply because they are white, In UK. I am not white by ethnicity, and I say this now, if this is not racism, I don’t know what it.

Without going into any further orotund circumlocution, here’s the simple hypothesis.
