Some on the right are quick to dismiss the claims of the whistleblower because he or she allegedly has ties to a Democrat. If we assert that political alignment makes it impossible for a person to make a factually correct claim about one from another party, then for the purpose of a logical consistency we must also make the same claim about Republicans that are going after the Biden’s. To do anything less would be hypocritical. I argue that while political affiliation comes with an inherent bias, that this in no way implies or proves that all things said by a partisan is untrue. Claims need to be objectively vetted, especially claims made by partisans no matter their party affiliation. To reject claims we do not like simply because we do not like the source of the claim is to be a slave to our own bias. Be careful about the claims you make about the other side, as in many cases the same applies to your side. With no forethought this leads to a self inflicted wound when our hypocrisy is pointed out... which we will then be offended by because tribalism makes us oblivious to our own bias and hypocrisy as we see them as objectivity. It is tough to see our own bias as our bias tends to be indistinguishable from our objectivity. The claims I make here apply to both the left, the right and myself.
