“Whataboutism” & The Left`s Double Standards
Just a quick note: One of the things I’m seeing now from the left is that when you point out their double standards, they say it’s “whataboutism”, whether it is things that they accuse Trump of doing that was also done by obama, or whether it is in mass media reporting on one thing but not the other, etc. In these cases, imo “whataboutism” should absolutely be used. Pointing out double standards is not “whataboutism” or deflection. It exposes their narrative and moral high ground as bs. Cries that “whataboutism is deflection” are only made by those who don’t want their narrative challenged. It is deflection in itself.
