Liberals Continue Assault On Sanders and Trump Admin
Published : June 25, 2018
On Friday, June 22, Sanders and some family members went into The Red Hen, a farm to table restaurant in Lexington, VA. The group was seated and ordered food, but after a short time, Sanders was approached by co-owner Stephanie Wilkinson and asked to leave. And even after the fact and the backlash on Yelp, she stands behind her actions because her staff could not bring themselves to serve someone who works for President Trump.
“I’m not a huge fan of confrontation,” Wilkinson said. “I have a business, and I want the business to thrive. This feels like the moment in our democracy when people have to make uncomfortable actions and decisions to uphold their morals.”
Those siding with Wilkinson include Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA), who spoke at a toy drive in Los Angeles on Saturday, claiming that the “resistance” must harass and even attack members of Trump’s administration.
“Let’s make sure we show up wherever we have to show up and if you see anybody from that Cabinet in a restaurant, in a department store, at a gasoline station, you get out and you create a crowd and you push back on them, and you tell them they’re not welcome anymore, anywhere,” Waters said.
To be clear: a representative of the legislative branch, by those comments, called for open harassment and abuse on members of the executive branch.
This is not even the first abuse Sanders has received this week. On Tuesday, June 19, actor Peter Fonda took to Twitter, threatening to take her children. That tweet was not even as bad as Fonda’s desire to rip Barron Trump from Melania’s arms and give him to a pedophile to be raped. At the same time Secretary of Homeland Security Kirstjen Nielsen was driven out of a Mexican restaurant by a mob yelling at her about immigration. And then they took it to her house to yell, “no justice, no sleep.” So the natural question is, where are the feminists? Where are feminists when it is women and children being harassed and threatened with rape, abuse, and even death?
Also, compare Sanders’ situation to others, such as Jack Phillips of Masterpiece Cakeshop, who had to go to the Supreme Court to have his right to deny baking a cake for a gay couple’s wedding. To be clear, Jack Phillips never denied selling someone a birthday cake or cookies, but because of his religious beliefs, he is not able to bake a cake to celebrate same-sex nuptials. This means that those calling for Phillips to “bake the cake, bigot,” better now be screaming “serve the salmon, sectarian.”
And what about that Starbucks in Philadelphia that on April 12 denied “service” to two black men and called the police? Sanders was not going to The Red Hen to use the bathroom and then sit there without purchasing something. She actually ordered food and offered to pay for it even after she got kicked out. The Red Hen workers better get excited for their bias training that they—by the Left’s own standards—should be forced to take.
Sarah Sanders may have been denied service, but The Red Hen has a much bigger problem. Sanders will not lose in any way in this exchange because her actions speak volumes. She left the restaurant without incident and provided a proper response to the owner, saying on Twitter that “Her actions say far more about her than about me. I always do my best to treat people, including those I disagree with, respectfully and will continue to do so.”
In other words, Sanders treats people as individuals, not as political pawns playing the game of Mobocracy. This is how you win and keep winning the game. Be the better person. In a dog-eat-dog world, the Left will continue to consume itself.
