Copied from a friend who copied it from somewhere else, where it was probably copied from some other person…. so it is an unattributed quote:
Copied from another post on Sarah Huckabee being asked to leave The Red Hen — I think it’s pretty spot on:
I’m sorry Sarah didn’t get served last night, but I want to clear up a few things.
We are not celebrating that she got kicked out. We do not want this.
We are celebrating that Republicans are now being treated the way they want to treat everyone else.
What did you think would happen when SCOTUS ruled bakeries could refuse to serve LGBTQ people on religious grounds? When Hobby Lobby wanted to deny women contraception? When doctors started saying they didn’t want to treat trans people? All on “moral grounds?”
Did you think the “right” had the sole ownership of morals? You’ve told yourselves that the “left” is a bunch of amoral crazy people so long, you probably started to believe it yourselves. It’s not true. Our morals say treat ALL people with dignity, regardless of who they are.
But that has been our weakness.
We thought we needed to treat all of you with the same respect as we want to be treated. We gave you the idea that your racist, homophobic, isolationist points of view were valid and we should listen.
What we failed to understand is that by listening, we validated you. We made you think those points of view were compatible with a civilized society. We thought maybe if we were reasonable, you would listen. You would… change.
We were wrong.
Now every gay couple has to go into a bakery and ask if they are allowed to get a cake. Women are scrambling to try and find out how to get birth control. Trans people have to wonder if they will be attacked for using a bathroom.
So, I’m not sorry if there is a new trend of the “left”, or as I call them, moral Americans, standing up and saying we will not tolerate children in cages, or dehumanizing other members of society.
You will now have to wonder if you go into a business if you will be welcome. You may have to ask, “Do they serve Republicans?”
Yes, it is humiliating… but it seems the only way to get a Republican to realize when something is wrong is to make them feel it themselves.
Welcome to the America that you fought for. Where we can refuse to acknowledge you on “moral grounds”.
You did this.
Your lack of empathy and dehumanization of others did this.
Now you can either stick to your “morals”, or you can help us fix it.
Yup. I basically agree here.
