The beacon of socialism and the standard-bearer for political intolerance and ideological bigotry, The Washington Post, published an editorial by Stephanie Wilkinson. You may recall that Wilkinson is the infamous owner of a restaurant in Lexington, VA who in June 2018 refused to serve White House spokeswoman Sara Huckabee Sanders because she was part of an administration that is "inhumane and unethical." She explained refusing Sanders and her family service because her restaurant
must uphold standards of "honesty, and compassion, and cooperation [see the hypocrisy?]."The Post is sending the message that it's OK to deny food and harass people because of their political beliefs.
Wilkinson also defended another recent incident where a waitress spat on President Donald Trump's son Eric in a trendy Chicago bar. Wilkinson wrote in the Post, "If you're directly complicit in spreading hate or perpetuating suffering, maybe you should consider dining at home....no one in the industry condones the physical assault of a patron," and then she declared that Americans should understand that a "frustrated person" such as a restaurant employee will "lash out at the representatives of an administration that has made its name trashing norms and breaking backs...If you're an unsavory individual, we have no legal or moral obligation to do business with you."In other words, if you disagree with Wilkinson's standards, you should be denied food.
Another editorial in the New York Times perpetuated the myth of the ignorant resistance that border facilities for illegals were akin to concentration camps. Writing for the Times, Kate Cronin-Furman, an assistant professor of human rights at University College London (really?), outrageously claimed that the border guard treatment of illegal immigrant children is the type of behavior "which has been shown to have played a huge role in atrocity commission and desistance in the Holocaust, Rwanda, and elsewhere. The campaign to stop the abuses at the border should exploit this sensitivity."Her solution was to publicly identify and shame customs and border security workers for their association with such jack-boot policies.
These are the ones who judge and accuse of hate while hating and stirring up hatred against those who disagree with them. The Post and Times are culpable co-conspirators for lending their platforms to such nonsense. Imagine what would happen if a Christian business refused service for someone because of their political views. Oh, wait! They have and were taken all the way to the Supreme Court over it. Hundreds of thousands of dollars spent, over a wedding cake. But this isn't an apple to apple comparison. The Times and Post are advocating public harassment, violence, and refusing food to those with whom they disagree. This is dead wrong. What did Christ say in Matthew 7:12, "
whatever you want men to do to you, do also to them, forthis is the Law and the Prophets." It's the Golden Rule, and it should be widely practiced by all.
