Has It Really Reached This Level?

This morning, the media is filled with stories about how Kellyanne Conway was seen in a picture kneeling on a couch in the Oval Office.  The point of the story is that Conway's feet were under her, so they were on the couch. 

Oh, the horror!  All across the internet, the left is just so appalled that Conway would have her feet on the couch in the Oval Office.  They call it disrespectful.  It's being treated as if it were one step from nuclear war.  Remember, the people who are so upset by Conway's position on the couch are the same ones who were fine when rioters trashed a university campus in an effort to deny a speaker the right to be heard.  They are the same folks who thought that riots in Baltimore, including the burning down of stores was appropriate in the midst of the mess after the death of Freddie Gray.  They also don't mind if organized group go to constituent events held by Congress and then intentionally disrupt those meetings so that no one gets heard.

Sorry, but have we really reached the level where conduct is judged solely on the basis of whose conduct it is?  Can it be that no matter what Conway does, the media finds it objectionable?  Can it be that no matter what the left wing protesters do, it is fine?  That's not the rule of law.  It's just the opposite.  It's a dangerous path to follow, and it ought to stop now.
