Liberals Now in Favor of Businesses’ Right to Refuse Service

From The Babylon Bee.

U.S.—After a restaurant recently asked White House press secretary Sarah Sanders to leave, liberals across the country announced they were suddenly in favor of allowing businesses the right to refuse service, despite their previous insistence that everyone be served, even if a business owner has a conscientious or religious objection in a particular case.

Liberal Americans had a near-instantaneous change of heart on the hotly debated topic of businesses being able to refuse service to people with whom they have serious ideological disagreements after Sanders was turned away from a public establishment. Thousands came forward to voice their newfound belief in the right to associate and renewed interest in defending individuals’ private property rights.


“This is a free country. How then can we force a business to implicitly support a lifestyle they totally disagree with?” one progressive pundit wrote on his Twitter account. “This isn’t a fascist nation, where we can just tell people they have to use their talents to promote ideas they find abhorrent.”

“That would be totalitarian!” he wrote in the 247th tweet in his lengthy thread on the topic.

At publishing time, the nation’s progressives had declared they would revert to their previous stance once a news story about a Christian baker, florist, or photographer refusing service to a gay couple begins to gain national attention again.

  1. “…liberals across the country announced they were suddenly in favor of allowing businesses the right to refuse service…”

    You know how I know this is parody? It suggests liberals would have consistent principles.

    Just got through going over the candidates with our hard-researching Dear Daughter. We depend on her every election. Among her many talents and tasks, Daughter works in a popular local restaurant. Some of our choices may have been based on good vs lousy tipping candidates she’s served. 🙂

    We also get to vote on (hahaha sure) “medical” marijuana for Oklahoma. Only good thing about it is, if you have unlicensed pot, you’d have to pay a hefty fine, but no jail time. The rest is bogus backdoor legalization, of course. (Mostly, I wish the States vs Fed pot laws would get ironed out; meanwhile, it’s a bit of a Constitutional crisis.)

    And I have to go in and vote on all the candidates, and pot semi-legalization, cold soberly! Don’t even have a Snickers bar.

      I’m going to try CBD oil. It’s got a lot of the benefits of cannabis, but without the THC (high). I did a bunch of research and have decided to buy from Elixinol.com. It was the only brand that appeared on two out of the three “best CBD oil” lists I looked at, including Consumer Lab, which tested it for purity and delivering the amount of CBD listed on the label.

    WHAT THE TALMUD TEACHES: A non-Jew asks the famous Rabbi Hillel to tell him the entire Torah while he stands on one foot; if Hillel succeeds, says the non-Jew, he’ll convert. Hillel promptly replies with the so-called Silver Rule: “What is hateful to you, do not do to your neighbor.” This rule applies to our modern times. It would be hateful to me to be denied service at a restaurant; therefore, the owner of the Red Hen should not have asked the Sanders family to leave. Similarly, it would be hateful to me to be compelled by the government to provide service to someone with whom I disagree politically; therefore, wedding vendors who oppose same-sex marriage should not be compelled to service them.
