The Left Is Attempting To Blacklist Sarah Sanders To Prevent Her From Getting a Job
The left is trying to blacklist former White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders now that she has left the White House to return to the private sector, or maybe even to elected politics.
An organization called American Bridge is seeking signatures in support of blacklisting Sarah Sanders.
Here is what its email reads: “Hello: We signed an open letter to America’s CEOs demanding they won’t hire anyone from the Trump administration who was complicit in Trump’s family separation policy.”
“Trump just announced that Sarah Sanders, his long-time press secretary and avid liar from the White House podium, will be leaving his administration at the end of the month.”
“Sanders will no doubt be looking for her next big gig––but CEOs must reject her resume.”
“Sanders spread misinformation, deflected blame, and did her best to cover for Trump at the expense of the truth about the family separation policy.”
Apparently the new standard invented by the left says that anyone who works for an administration that they don’t like is to be ruined forever after. Seems like the left have lost any sense of decency or decorum time long ago.
Paul Mirengof at Powerline explained this, stating that “there is nothing new about the left’s efforts to blacklist those who serve in Republican administrations. Some members of the George W. Bush administration received the same treatment — e.g. when they tried to return to teaching law. And the left vehemently objected when the University of Virginia hired Marc Short (one of the more innocuous, to put it kindly, members of Trump’s White House team) for a top position at the school.”
“I don’t know whether the left has ever successfully ruined the post-administration career of a Republican. However, I’m pretty sure it has managed to cause some to land in less prestigious jobs than they would have occupied had they been returning to private life from some other form of service, especially service in a Democratic administration.”
“In Sanders’ case, the left is targeting “America’s CEO’s.” I suspect that this is an even more spineless cohort than college and university administrators. We’ll see.”
