Sarah Huckabee Sanders kicked out of a restaurant: Can't we all just get along?

You’re not of the body,” is what Dr. McCoy shouted at his Enter­prise offi­cers after being brain­washed in the ways of Lan­dru in the Star Trek episode, The Return of the Archons

The most intol­er­ant peo­ple I know are lib­er­als, who I often refer to as leftists.

First a story:. Back in 2007 I vis­ited Lib­eral, a small city in south­west­ern Kansas. The Sun­flower State is one of the most least lib­eral states in Amer­ica, so how did Lib­eral get its name? Accord­ing to a Lib­eral vis­i­tors guide­book, a gen­er­ous 19th cen­tury home­steader bucked the trend to charge passersby for water for their live­stock. When learn­ing that, it’s said that the trav­el­ers would reply, “That’s mighty lib­eral of you.”

Two nights ago Sarah Huck­abee Sanders, Pres­i­dent Trump’s press sec­re­tary, sat down with mem­bers of her fam­ily to have din­ner at the Red Hen restau­rant in Lex­ing­ton, Virginia.

Stephanie Wilkin­son, the owner of the Red Hen pulled her aside–then asked Sanders to leave because she worked for the president.

In a 21st cen­tury way, that was mighty lib­eral of Wilkinson.

I have another story for you: In the 1980s, Repub­li­can gov­er­nor Jim Thomp­son was hav­ing din­ner at a restau­rant in the South­west Side Chicago dis­trict of Michael Madi­gan, a Demo­c­rat, who was then, as he is now, the speaker of the Illi­nois House of Rep­re­sen­ta­tives. The restau­ra­teur called Madi­gan on the tele­phone and asked, “What do I do?” Madi­gan replied, “Give him first class treatment.”

That was mighty lib­eral of Madi­gan, in the 20th cen­tury way.

But in the present day lib­er­als, make that left­ists, not only can’t tol­er­ate dis­sent, they can’t tol­er­ate the very con­cept of con­trary ideas. It devolves into blind delu­sional hatred, which was first iden­ti­fied by the late Charles Krautham­mer in 2003 when he iden­ti­fied Bush Derange­ment Syn­drome as “the acute onset of para­noia in oth­er­wise nor­mal peo­ple in reac­tion to the poli­cies, the pres­i­dency — nay — the very exis­tence of George W. Bush.”

Bush Derange­ment Syn­drome was a mild case of the snif­fles among the libs com­pared to the rag­ing fever that is Trump Derange­ment Syndrome.

Left­ists gather their news from their pre­ferred sources, such as the CNN, MSNBC, the New York Times, the Wash­ing­ton Post, and the Huff­in­g­ton Post. They con­gre­gate in pri­vate Face­book groups where no con­ser­v­a­tives are allowed. “Aha,” a lib­eral will scream out while read­ing my entry, “But don’t you wingnuts do the same thing, get­ting your news from Fox, the Wall Street Jour­nal, and Bre­it­bart? Don’t you have your own Face­book groups?”

Guilty as charged. But there’s a big dif­fer­ence with our side. The main­stream media leans to the left. Proof? Last week I was chan­nel surf­ing and both ABC’s Jimmy Kim­mel and NBC’s Jimmy Fal­lon, on their late night com­edy shows, were simul­ta­ne­ously attack­ing Trump’s poli­cies. Of course nei­ther of them were funny.

When I was accom­pa­ny­ing my mother, who has since passed away, for her chemother­apy treat­ments, we’d be sub­jected to the pro­pa­ganda from the left­ists on The View in the wait­ing room.

Sports report­ing has become politi­cized. ESPN’s Sport­Cen­ter dishes out lib­er­al­ism, as do news­pa­per sports colum­nists Nancy Armour of USA Today and the Chicago Tribune’s David Haugh.

Those of us on the right can’t bury our heads in the sand even if we wanted to.

Curt Schilling, a con­ser­v­a­tive, was imme­di­ately fired from ESPN for shar­ing a Face­book post that was viewed as anti-​transgender.

A 2016 poll dis­cov­ered that lib­eral and Democ­rats are three-​times more likely to unfriend some­one on Face­book over pol­i­tics as opposed to con­ser­v­a­tives. I’ve had good friends I’ve known for years, includ­ing a for­mer girl­friend, unfriend me on Face­book because I sup­port Don­ald Trump and they don’t. I’ve never unfriended any­one on FB over pol­i­tics. I’ve only blocked abu­sive peo­ple on Twit­ter – never once over their polit­i­cal views.

Which is why I was not sur­prised when I heard Sarah Huck­abee Sanders walked into the alter­na­tive left­ist uni­verse of the Red Hen in Vir­ginia, she was told to scram.

Sanders is not of the body. She is not a denizen of the lib­eral echo chamber.

Finally, I’ll end with a quote. When the 1992 Los Ange­les riots raged Rod­ney King pleaded, “Can’t we all just get along?”

Sanders should have been given first class treat­ment at the Red Hen, just as any other patron there deserves.

Despite our polit­i­cal dif­fer­ences, Amer­i­cans still have plenty in common.

Wait! I’m not done. Of course par­al­lels are being drawn between the Sanders boot­ing and the devout Chris­t­ian Col­oradans who refused to bake a wed­ding cake for a gay cou­ple. They view same-​sex wed­dings as a sin. Per­son­ally, I believe the bak­ers should have taken the order with a love-​the-​sinner-​but-​hate-​the-​sin approach.

But our con­sti­tu­tion offers reli­gious pro­tec­tions, that are still not com­pletely deter­mined, even after the US Supreme Court ruled in Mas­ter­piece Cakeshop vs. the Col­orado Civil Rights Commission.

Welcome to Liberal, Kansas

By John Ruberry

“You’re not of the body,” is what Dr. McCoy shouted at his Enterprise officers after being brainwashed in the ways of Landru in the Star Trek episode, The Return of the Archons

The most intolerant people I know are liberals, who I often refer to as leftists.

First a story:. Back in 2007 I visited Liberal, a small city in southwestern Kansas. The Sunflower State is one of the most least liberal states in America, so how did Liberal get its name? According to a Liberal visitors guidebook, a generous 19th century homesteader bucked the trend to charge passersby for water for their livestock. When learning that, it’s said that the travelers would reply, “That’s mighty liberal of you.”

Two nights ago Sarah Huckabee Sanders, President Trump’s press secretary, sat down with members of her family to have dinner at the Red Hen restaurant in Lexington, Virginia.

Stephanie Wilkinson, the owner of the Red Hen pulled her aside–then asked Sanders to leave because she worked for the president.

In a 21st century way, that was mighty liberal of Wilkinson.

I have another story for you: In the 1980s, Republican governor Jim Thompson was having dinner at a restaurant in the Southwest Side Chicago district of Michael Madigan, a Democrat, who was then, as he is now, the speaker of the Illinois House of Representatives. The restaurateur called Madigan on the telephone and asked, “What do I do?” Madigan replied, “Give him first class treatment.”

That was mighty liberal of Madigan, in the 20th century way.

But in the present day liberals, make that leftists, not only can’t tolerate dissent, they can’t tolerate the very concept of contrary ideas. It devolves into blind delusional hatred, which was first identified by the late Charles Krauthammer in 2003 when he identified Bush Derangement Syndrome as “the acute onset of paranoia in otherwise normal people in reaction to the policies, the presidency — nay — the very existence of George W. Bush.”

Bush Derangement Syndrome was a mild case of the sniffles among the libs compared to the raging fever that is Trump Derangement Syndrome.

Leftists gather their news from their preferred sources, such as the CNN, MSNBC, the New York Times, the Washington Post, and the Huffington Post. They congregate in private Facebook groups where no conservatives are allowed. “Aha,” a liberal will scream out while reading my entry, “But don’t you wingnuts do the same thing, getting your news from Fox, the Wall Street Journal, and Breitbart? Don’t you have your own Facebook groups?”

Guilty as charged. But there’s a big difference with our side. The mainstream media leans to the left. Proof? Last week I was channel surfing and both ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel and NBC’s Jimmy Fallon, on their late night comedy shows, were simultaneously attacking Trump’s policies. Of course neither of them were funny.

When I was accompanying my mother, who has since passed away, for her chemotherapy treatments, we’d be subjected to the propaganda from the leftists on The View in the waiting room.

Sports reporting has become politicized. ESPN’s SportCenter dishes out liberalism, as do newspaper sports columnists Nancy Armour of USA Today and the Chicago Tribune’s David Haugh.

Those of us on the right can’t bury our heads in the sand even if we wanted to.

Curt Schilling, a conservative, was immediately fired from ESPN for sharing a Facebook post that was viewed as anti-transgender.

A 2016 poll discovered that liberal and Democrats are three-times more likely to unfriend someone on Facebook over politics as opposed to conservatives. I’ve had good friends I’ve known for years, including a former girlfriend, unfriend me on Facebook because I support Donald Trump and they don’t. I’ve never unfriended anyone on FB over politics. I’ve only blocked abusive people on Twitter–never once over their political views.

Which is why I was not surprised when I heard Sarah Huckabee Sanders walked into the alternative leftist universe of the Red Hen in Virginia, she was told to scram.

Sanders is not of the body. She is not a denizen of the liberal echo chamber.

Finally, I’ll end with a quote. When the 1992 Los Angeles riots raged Rodney King pleaded, “Can’t we all just get along?”

Sanders should have been given first class treatment at the Red Hen, just as any other patron there deserves.

Despite our political differences, Americans still have plenty in common.

Wait! I’m not done. Of course parallels are being drawn between the Sanders booting and the devout Christian Coloradans who refused to bake a wedding cake for a gay couple. They view same-sex weddings as a sin. Personally, I believe the bakers should have taken the order with a love-the-sinner-but-hate-the-sin approach.

But our constitution offers religious protections, that are still not completely determined, even after the US Supreme Court ruled in Masterpiece Cakeshop vs. the Colorado Civil Rights Commission.
