Let Me Get This Straight: 'Conservatives' Are Not Upset Over Screaming Toddlers Being Torn Away [View all]

'Conservatives' are not upset about screaming toddlers being torn away from their mothers...
But they're OUTRAGED over Sarah Huckabee being torn away from a plate of fried chicken.

'Conservatives' and 'libertarians' like Rand Paul want to amend the Civil Rights Act of 1964 to make it LEGAL for private businesses to discriminate over whom they serve...
As long as that doesn't include discriminating against white conservatives.

Got it.

Let's be honest here...if Sarah Sanders had been a high profile lesbian, the American Fascist Right would have been CHEERING if the Red Hen restaurant had refused to serve her. And let's not forget...THAT WOULD ALSO BE PERFECTLY LEGAL! The Civil Rights Act forbid restaurants from serving people on the grounds of race and (possibly) religion, but NOT sexual orientation. It's perfectly legal to FIRE somebody because you don't like their sexual orientation.
