Every once in a while we have to spend an entire article making fun of virtue-signaling rage harpies on the Left because they just make it SO DAMN EASY. At this moment, No Gays Allowed is trending, and all because several Lefties cant be bothered to actually READ beyond a headline.
This is the story theyre sharing that sparked the trend
Peter Daou ✔ @peterdaou Tennessee hardware store owner puts up 'No Gays Allowed' sign and claims, "I'm going to take more persecution than them because I'm standing for what I believe in."
That is absolutely repugnant.
And shame on Obama for not doing more for the gay community in 2015 WHEN IT HAPPENED.
Charles M. Blow ✔ @CharlesMBlow Boy, gays are EVERYWHERE! Probably even on staff at your pathetic hardware store. Not everyone flies a flag Tennessee hardware store puts up 'No Gays Allowed' sign http://usat.ly/1IsDCXD via @usatoday
If only Obama had done more for this community, right?
John Fugelsang ✔ @JohnFugelsang Homophobic No Gays Allowed sign put up by homophobic Tennessse store to show devotion to noted non-homophobe Jesus.
Remember when Obama evolved and decided he was for gay marriage RIGHT before the election in 2012?
Scott V. Blomquist @vtblom And now it starts... #enough
It started three years ago, chief.
Annise Parker ✔ @AnniseParker The expected outgrowth of SCOTUS ruling this week. Expect more of this.

Whenever or why-ever it happened, people have the right to do what they want in their own personal lives. If that includes refusing to allow someone onto your own property, then so be it. Go somewhere else.
You can’t refuse to serve people people for what they are, only what they do (like wear a ball cap or not wear a shirt).
The baker did not refuse to serve gays. He refused to do a cake for a fake wedding.
Rather stupid for a general merchant.
But since he wants to make this an issue, he will be whining if/when ACE pulls his franchise license.
In the world of pick-your-battles, this merchant may have picked the wrong one. Be a merchant or be an activist.
We’ve been putting up with No Guns Allowed signs for years. Where’s our social justice?
We used to say this is a free country. I can refuse to serve someone for whatever reason I want. It’s not for government to punish what I think.
Sorry hoss. That ended with Jim Crow. Welcome to the our world.
If they bothered to look they'd find that anti-discrimination laws are state laws, and the Tennessee anti-discrimination law does not prevent discrimination based on sexual orientation. So the hardware store owner's actions, while distasteful to some people, were not illegal.
And what should a person’s punishment be if he won’t be forced to serve? Take away is property, throw him in jail, end his life? Call it what you want, to me it’s slavery.
“So the hardware store owner’s actions, while distasteful to some people”
Distasteful to loathsome perverts and their idiot supporters.
F them. They should have no say in anything, ever.
Agree with DSC.
I’m not going to support a ‘life style’ when its practitioners have murder, suicide, domestic abuse, and serious communicable disease rates 10-30 TIMES higher than the normal population.
The people who support fecal sex only harm ‘gays’ and the culture in general.
Yes, they should be killed...at first.
Where in the Constitution does it prohibit you, as an individual, from refusing to serve any person for any reason whatsoever?
Anti-Discrimination laws targeting citizens are blatantly unconstitutional.
The Constitution only prohibits the government from discrimination in certain specified areas. I don’t think that openly homosexual people are specified in that prohibition.
Show me where I am wrong.
You cannot have a No Coloreds sign on your business. Where have you been for 50 years?
Federal Civil Rights Act of 1964, which prohibits discrimination by privately owned places of public accommodation on the basis of race, color, religion or national origin. Places of public accommodation include hotels, restaurants, theaters, banks, health clubs and stores. Nonprofit organizations such as churches are generally exempt from the law.
That of course flies in the face of the 1st Amendment guarantee of freedom of association.
Or it protects it. I remember Jim Crow. Some of my friends still have Jim Crow-era bathrooms.
If the Civil Rights Act was unconstitutional, it would be gone by now.
A law that specifically forbids the freedom not to associate is not in support of freedom of association. The claim that it would be gone by now if it were unconstitutional is laughable, given how much of the federal government activities fall into that category and remain unmolested by judicial decree.
We would not have needed the Civil Rights Act if we hadn’t denied people their civil rights. We brought that on ourselves.
What’s this “we” stuff? Most Americans weren’t even alive then.
Either way, one offense to freedom of association is not the proper cure to another offense to it.
