A former clerk who once worked for Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas had to give an anchor on MSNBC a huge dose of reality on Friday after the host suggested that the ruling by the highest court in the land would lead to restaurants being “segregated” again like they were before the Civil Rights movement. This is a pretty good example of how clueless and brain dead the vast majority of liberal talking heads with mainstream media networks really are.
Before getting into this, I’d like to point out that segregation is indeed happening again in places all across the United States. It’s happening mostly on college campuses and the efforts are being led by black students, not white ones. And guess what? Most of them are progressives. Funny, right?
“The court ruled in favor of Christian web designer Lorie Smith in a 6-3 ruling that she had the First Amendment right to refuse to provide service to a same-sex couple. MSNBC anchor Ana Cabrera suggested the ruling could lead to restaurants discriminating against individuals based on the ‘color of their skin,’ to which Carrie Severino pushed back,” the Daily Caller reported.
“The law in Colorado, though, defines discrimination not only as refusing to provide goods or services but publishing any communication that essentially says, an ‘Individual’s patronage is unwelcome based on a protected characteristic.’ Could this ruling, in Lorie Smith’s favor, open the door to other types businesses refusing services to customers? For example, could a restaurant owner put up a sign and deny service to a customer because of the color of their skin, citing free speech?” Cabrera went on to ask.
“Absolutely not, because a restaurant is not speech. And Lorie Smith herself is not refusing services to people on the basis of their class. If a same-sex couple came and said, ‘We want a website about selling our house,’ or ‘We want a website advertising our business,’ or something, she is more than happy to do that. So, this is not because of their class,” Severino stated in her reply.
She then stated that Smith would also deny services to a straight couple if they were pushing a message that she did now agree with, and that is what removes this from the realm of discrimination against homosexuals.
“It’s limited to speech. That’s why it’s a free speech case. It’s limited to people who are bringing a message,” she continued. “And again, Lorie Smith is happy to give a whole range of messages for same-sex attracted individuals, she’s not happy to do messages that celebrate a particular message that she disagrees with on the basis of her religion.”
Liberals are highly emotional people. This doesn’t mean they are stupid or brain dead. Well, some of them are, but that is a different point that should be saved for a totally different conversation. No, the left just doesn’t temper or restrain their emotions, so when they hear something, rather than look into it for themselves to get the details, they jump to conclusions and give knee-jerk reactions.
This is what needs to be avoided.
