Leftist hypocrisy on display: 'Red Hen' shows Sarah Huckabee Sanders the door

White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders got kicked out of a restaurant on Friday night. Not because she and her party of eight were talking politics and annoying other customers, but because Sanders has a high-profile job for a President hated by the Left. These days, some hate on the Left is disguised as moral "conviction." So, the owner of the Red Hen restaurant in Lexington, Virginia asked Sanders to accompany her to the outside patio where she asked Sanders to leave.

The Red Hen owner said, "This feels like the moment in our democracy when people have to make uncomfortable actions and decisions to uphold their morals."

In just the past few days, protesters have gathered at DHS secretary Kirstjen Nielsen's home and threatened the children of DHS employees, Florida's Attorney General was followed to a movie theatre where protesters reportedly spit on her, and Sarah Huckabee Sanders was kicked out of a restaurant because she works at the White House. And the Left doesn't see any contradiction in this kind of bullying. The same Left that finds discrimination in every square inch of society, is stalking people — females no less — and harassing them.

They've now come around to discriminating themselves.

The self-righteousness and hypocrisy here is disgusting. Kicking someone out of a restaurant — that's a new one for Virginia. Well, it's not really new, it just hasn't been seen there since the Jim Crow era. The Left likes to fancy itself the political side that dragged America out of Jim Crow and now keeps us from returning to it. Even though that is total historical fantasy, that's what progressives tell themselves in order to sleep at night.

Ironically, they've gone so crazy with their hyper-P.C., micro-aggression, trigger-warning bull crap, that they've now come around to discriminating themselves. And they don't even realize it. They think they're still fighting the good fight, upholding justice. But they've actually ushered in a new "Jane" Crow era, where if you even hint that you support something like securing the border, you could be stalked, spat on or kicked out of a restaurant. For having a political view.

That doesn't sound very progressive. It's more like psychotic tyranny.

The Moment of Trump's Conversion: Dr Anthony Fauci Takes Full Responsibility https://dailycaller.com/2020/03/30/anthony-fauci-moment-donald-trump-realized-extend-social-distancing-mandate/
  • Dr Anthony Fauci, the Chief Medical Advisor to the coronavirus task force, explained on CNN that Trump listened and "got it right away" after being shown new data projecting as many as 3 Million deaths in the US if COVID-19 mitigation policies were lifted.
  • Fauci also said Trump's "first goal is to prevent suffering and death" and this was part of the reason why he knew the COVID-19 guidelines should be extended.
  • "You know, interestingly, we showed him the data, he looked at the data and he got it right away, it was a pretty clear picture," according to Fauci.
  • "Dr. Debbie Birx and I went in together and leaned over his desk and said 'Here is the data, take a look.'
  • Trump reportedly looked at them, understood the implications and he shook his head and said 'I guess we got to do it.'
  • "Medically, this is the right decision, and I stand behind it 100%," Fauci said.
  • "From a public health standpoint, we felt strongly that it would have been the wrong decision to pull back," Fauci said. "I mean, we are scientists, physicians, public health officials. We're not economists. We're sensitive to the idea that the economy could suffer, but weigh that against tens of thousands, hundreds of thousands of American lives."
  • "...it was patently obvious looking at the data that at the end of the day if we try to push back prematurely, not only would we lose lives, but it probably would hurt the economy as well. So you would lose on double accounts. So, to us, there was no question what the right choice was."
