When was the last time you heard an apology from anyone on the Left for extreme and inappropriate comments or accusations that almost always end up false? You don’t have to think too hard about it because it never happens.
Rep. Lauren Boebert from Colorado made a stupid joke about Ilhan Omar and the mainstream media, Democrats, and some people who pretend to be Republicans lost their minds. Boebert called Omar to apologize and the call ended with Omar hanging up and followed with a press release full of left-wing talking points. Omar couldn’t have cared less if she apologized or not based on her actions after the call.

Boebert said, "She didn’t want to hear what I had to say. Omar and the left don’t want an apology. They want public humiliation. They want to cancel me but that’s not going to happen… I will not be canceled." The Left are political masterminds and Boebert should have known Omar would have used the attempt at an apology as a weapon.
Omar and other Democratic politicians are known for making anti-American and racist statements against White people they never apologize for. Omar has never had a good thing to say about the country she immigrated to from Somalia. She thinks it’s a systemically racist and evil place along with other radical House Democrats like Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez, Rashida Talib, Cori Bush, Ayanna Pressley.

Leftists never hesitate to call their opponents racists, White supremacists, or faces of White supremacy if they don’t share their views. They celebrate race hustlers like Ibram Kendi and Robin DiAngelo who call White people racist and think America is inherently racist while making millions of dollars doing it. Woke Corporate America loves “diversity” trainings that “undo whiteness” and tell employees to be “less white.” They have no problem with insulting a large percentage of their workforce for their version of social justice.
Joe Biden refuses to apologize for calling Kyle Rittenhouse a White supremacist in a campaign ad. Biden had zero evidence to support his statement but he said it because it scored political points with Democrats and fit the false mainstream media narrative. Black Lives Matter and their supporters never apologize for painting all cops as racist. The Left pretends to be against stereotyping but engage in it all the time.

Where’s the apology to President Trump from the mainstream media about the fake Russia collusion narrative they ran with for most of his administration and he got impeached over? It was the biggest smear job in modern history and the media lied about him all day every day during his term, and still do. There’s no wall-to-wall coverage about how the story turned out to be false on CNN or MSNBC. Good luck finding a front-page New York Times headline saying they were wrong.
Would the Left be upset if Boebert made an inappropriate or racist comment against a straight, White, male, Christian, conservative? There’s no chance they would stand up for that person because they aren’t part of their intersectional coalition so it’s ok to insult someone like that. They would never defend a conservative against a racist attack since they usually are the ones attacking based on their skin color. Ask Winsome Sears and Larry Elder about that.

We need to hold the Left’s feet to the fire and demand apologies and accountability every time they insult Americans and the country. Leftists running woke corporations should get made to apologize for racist and inappropriate diversity, equity, and inclusion training at work. Most of that training has moved from compliance and ensuring employees aren’t engaging in racist practices to left-wing political indoctrination.
The Left never apologizes because they think everything they say and do is just, no matter how wrong it may be because it moves us closer to what they think is a utopian future. It’s acceptable for them to make disparaging comments towards one group, but not another. Conservatives, moderate Democrats, Independents, and non-political people need to call out everything unacceptable the Left says and does. Nothing will ever change unless ordinary Americans demand it and force the Left to the same standards as the rest of us.
