OPINION | Ken Pittman: Red Hen for Blue Chickens Only
A liberal-owned restaurant in Lexington, Virginia has become the most famous restaurant in the nation as a result of the staff and owner Stephanie Wilkinson, who all voted to out kick White House Press Secretary Sara Sanders after she was seated to dine last week.
The liberals in the staff and ownership have moved America back to the early 1960s, when racist restaurants put signs on the windows that read "Whites Only."
We are facing a growing form of bigotry, which is growing stronger than racism in this nation (ask Kanye West or Condaleezza Rice): ideological bigotry. As part of the Trump White House, Sanders was persona non grata and told to leave the premises--which she did, humiliated and hungry. This could be the "Fort Sumter" of this new incivility. I personally question the wisdom of it, but not the right to exercise the choice to do it.
Others will and have followed suit. A local caterer, Jen Royle of Dare to Taste, LLC caterers in Charlestown, has informed any Trump voter that we are not welcome to her business, including her restaurant in Boston's north end, Table, and she tells us all to stay away in her tweet:
I'm not quite sure of the strategy of ostracizing roughly half of the population, but if it is an integrity move on the part of liberal business owners, let the chips fall where they may.
Political bigotry has businesses cutting off their noses to spite their faces.
Congresswoman Maxine Waters (D-CA) has called on outright harassment of all Trump supporters wherever we are found.
"They go low, we go high," Michelle Obama famously said. Obviously, that was a bad joke.
Antifa, Occupy Wall Street, Pink Hat Brigade and Black Lives Matter all have shown the ugliness of the left that is by far eclipsing the scattered morons who still cling to the racist ridiculousness of the KKK, which has been rejected by the mainstream conservatives. This will get worse before it gets better.
Ironic that the Democrats, the authors of the Anti-Bullying movement, are now outright bullying and intimidating all Trump supporters where ever they can be found and ordering others to follow suit.
"Better to eat a soup of herbs than to dine on a great feast with an enemy." --Proverbs 15:17
