Douglas MacKinnon: Being far-left, liberal, or a Democrat, means you never have to apologize for anything

NEWYou can now listen to Fox News articles!

For those on the left who are still confused as to why tens of millions of Americans voted for Donald J. Trump, look no further than the Jussie Smollett case.

There is nothing more powerful in our nation than Liberal Privilege. Nothing.

Being far-left, liberal, or a Democrat, means you never have to apologize for anything. You never have to admit you were wrong. You never have to be accountable. Ever.


Jussie Smollett was indicted by a grand jury on 16 felony counts related to staging an alleged hate-crime hoax – hoaxes being increasingly in vogue with the far-left – and then prosecutors shocked the nation by dropping all charges.


Well…everyone knows why.

Lift up a few flat rocks, observe the political sleaze oozing about underneath, and there is your answer.

It is not only the “Chicago Way,” but the liberal way, and the political way.  A get-out-of-jail-free card slapped down on tables for decades by the elites, the special interests, and most especially, the privileged liberals.

By far, the biggest laugh in this latest miscarriage of justice was provided by Rahm Emanuel – the far-left liberal Democratic Mayor of Chicago -- protesting the dropping of all charges against Smollett.

“This is a whitewash of justice,” Emanuel declared.  “Where is the accountability in the system?  You cannot have, because of a person’s position, one set of rules apply to them and another set of rules apply to everybody else.”

Emanuel deserves an Academy Award for getting that line out with a straight face. He has benefited his entire political career from “no accountability.” He and those he has worked for in the past have operated under the Liberal Privilege set of rules only because of their “positions.”

Emanuel and the rest of the “let them eat cake” political-liberal class have never had to bother with “another set of rules,” which apply to the unwashed masses.

For the most part, Liberal Privilege exists because over the course of the last five decades or so, the three major megaphones of our nation – the media, entertainment, and academia – were ceded to the liberal and far-left class.

Once that happened, “no accountability” became the coin of the liberal realm.

The liberal governor and liberal attorney general of Virginia were potentially caught wearing blackface. No accountability. The liberal lieutenant governor of Virginia accused of sexual assaults. No accountability.

Those who control those three major-megaphones deciding ignorance and no coverage were bliss for their liberal and political interests.

Worse than that, because the far-left did take over most of the media, entertainment, and academia only by means of brutal, illegal, and continual discrimination, they decided that monetary awards should be in order for those in strategically important positions who joined the “resistance” against a pragmatic and commonsense America or most especially against the hated President Trump.

Hillary Clinton, former FBI director James Comey, and Andrew McCabe, the fired deputy director of the FBI, are not only not held accountable for their despicable actions and even alleged crimes, but are rewarded by the left with multi-million dollar book contracts and massive speaking fees.

Welcome to the “Don’t you wish you were us?” world of Liberal Privilege.

It is entirely because of that decades-long privilege and continuing no accountability that millions of Americans from every single demographic screamed “enough is enough” and voted for Donald Trump in 2016.

Much like the plot of the movie “High Noon,” Americans grew tired of dealing with this never-ending corruption on their own and elected a new sheriff not owned and operated by either political party.


President Trump is trying to drain the swamp, but he is still one man fighting the massive and unchecked power of Liberal Privilege.

A power and a privilege doing irreparable harm to our nation.
