Washington Post Encourages More Attacks on Republicans

It started with public figures being shrieked at by moonbats when they try to dine in public, as with Kirstjen Nielsen, Ted Cruz, and Mitch McConnell. It escalated when the owner of the Red Hen restaurant in Lexington, Virginia refused to serve Sarah Sanders. Last Tuesday, liberal tolerance and civility escalated further when a waitress spat in the face of Eric Trump in The Aviary, a ritzy Chicago cocktail lounge. Then the odious Washington Post responded to this incident a few days later by publishing a rant by Stephanie Wilkinson, owner of the Red Hen, that actually justifies uncivil behavior toward non-leftists in public places like restaurants.

A few annotated lowlights:

[A]t bottom this isn’t about politics. It’s about values, and accountability to values, in business.

When a moonbat says it isn’t about politics, it’s about values, she means it isn’t about normal politics, it’s about self-righteous, elitist, if-you-don’t-agree-with-me-you-are-filth-and-must-die liberal politics.

On a variety of levels, pressure is increasing on companies to articulate and stand by a code. Customers are demonstrating that they want to patronize companies that share their values.

The term for this is ESG. It is responsible for the often nauseating ultraleft propaganda rammed down the public’s throat by belligerently woke corporations like Procter & Gamble, Nike, and Burger King. Sharing “values” that do not consist of radical left-wing political views has no part in this.

Our workforce also increasingly demands that employers establish a set of ethical standards. The once-ubiquitous idea that companies exist purely and solely to provide profit to shareholders is withering away like corn husks in the summer sun.

All good liberals know that it is not about profits, which are bad. It’s about social engineering. This attitude actually flies in the entertainment industry; we’ll see if it works for restaurants.

[I]t’s not okay to ask employees, partners or management to clock out of their consciences when they clock in to work.

When progressives are driven by their depraved ideology to do something vile, they see this as acting nobly in accordance with their consciences. We can assume that it is “not okay” to expect waitresses to refrain from spitting in the faces of customers they regard as insufficiently liberal.

The rules have shifted.

Now all is permitted, because orange man bad.

[W]hen the day comes that the world feels returned to its normal axis [i.e., when Democrats are back in full control of Washington], I expect we’ll see fewer highly charged encounters making headlines. In the meantime, the new rules apply. If you’re directly complicit in spreading hate or perpetuating suffering, maybe you should consider dining at home.

“Spreading hate or perpetuating suffering” is liberalese for “being the sort of person liberals hate and will take every opportunity to make suffer.” Hypocrisy is the core essence of their mentality, possibly because deep down they know that everything they say is wrong. That’s why they talk in euphemisms for euphemisms (e.g., choice = abortion = killing a baby) and sheer Orwellian B.S. (e.g., inclusion = exclusion of normal people).

In terms of irresponsibility, publishing this sociopathic garbage ranks with Maxine Waters egging on Democrats to harass any Republicans who dare go out in public. But at least Waters has the excuse of subnormal intelligence. WaPo knows what it is doing; it is not just bullying, which we are used to from progressives by now, but encouraging a steady escalation toward the political violence that is already beginning to emerge.

A new low, even for WaPo.
