..... few weeks ago, “MSNBC host Melissa Harris-Perry offered an unreserved and tearful apology on her show…for remarks she made last week about Mitt Romney’s family and his recently adopted African-American grandson” tweeting: “I am sorry. Without reservation or qualification. I apologize to the Romney family.”

Most recently, it was reported that “MSNBC President Phil Griffin apologized to Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus on Thursday for a tweet suggesting conservatives “hate” interracial marriages and “dismissed” the staffer who authored it.”

What about every honest hard working American who believes in our heritage and is offended by liberals everyday?

The “controversial statement” followed by “The Apology” appears to be a kind of phenomenon sweeping American culture whereby momentary outbursts of actual thought are swiftly followed by denials and soulful public remorse. To “offend” another

This guy is going to wear out his "quote" key if he's not careful.

From his examples, it would seem that it’s only those of us on the right who take offense too easily. Apparently he’s never looked at the perpetually offended on the left.

Not so fast...

What is sweeping the nation is that conservatives are pushing back on the double-standard.

It really, very publicly began when liberals saw the opportunity to attack Trent Lott over his throw-away comment to Strom Thurmond on his 100th birthday that he would have made a good president.

The Left seized on this to claim that Lott was supporting segregation, and demanded that Lott apologize. Lott did, many times, and was still excoriated for it by the Left.

Seeing a new weapon for their arsenal, the "apology demand" became a popular tool for liberals, and organizations like Media Matters popped up to monitor conservative airwaves for any statement that could be twisted to construe a minority slight, and then calls for apologies would ensue.

What is happening now is that liberals are gettig caught in their own trap. For years, they felt emboldened by the lack of opposition, and they became more and more strident in the things they said. They finally reached a tipping point, and are being called out on it.

The double-standard was getting to be much too obvious.The crack in the armor came when Martin Bashir was forced out at MSNBC over comments that were much worse than anything that Don Imus ever said. For a while, it seemed that Bashir would get a pass, but the contrast to Imus' firing was just too much.

The dam being breached, the flood of liberal apologies is now flowing.

All politics aside how the Romney mockers did their mocking should be offensive to anyone. One of them sang the Sesame Street song

"One of these THINGS is not like the other. One of these THINGS doesn't belong.

MHP was only sorry for demonstrating what a racist she is. She is part of the elites that own black Americans.

Wasn't it earlier this week that some mucka-muck in South Carolina chapter of the NAALCP remarked that he hated Clarence Thomas for marrying a White woman?
