Snopes Rates Assertion That Democrats Should Be Held To The Same Standards As Republicans As “Mostly False”


TACOMA, WASHINGTON – Snopes, the well-known left-leaning fact-checking web site, recently fact-checked the assertion that Democrats should be held to the same standards as Republicans.

Snopes rated this as “Mostly False”.

“While it sounds good in theory – holding everyone to the same standard – in practice it’s problematic," Snopes stated. "Democrats are trying to do all these good things, and sometimes the rules just get in the way. But that doesn’t mean Republicans can violate those rules. Only Democrats.”

Snopes claimed that consistency is “overrated”, dismissed calls for it as “Whataboutism”, and criticized Republicans for their inability to keep two contradictory ideas in their head at once.

“Besides,” Snopes continued, “Democrats are so much smarter, wiser, and more moral than Republicans. When Democrats discriminate, use divisive hate-speech, violently riot, or break the law, they know how to do those evil things the ‘right way’.”

“In fact, when they do those things, we don't even consider it doing those things.”
