This is about right. I’d say that The Red Hen (by the way is this a double entendre or WHAT?) incident has seriously galvanized people who were already pretty galvanized. And I am NOT talking about the pu**y hat crowd.
Consider this comment on the attached article. It is a sentiment that many people probably share in this country.
That my dear readers is a sad statement.
(From The Wall Street Journal)
The political left is now repeating that mistake as its cultural and political vanguard sends a message of condescension, hostility and now ostracism to anyone who voted for Mr. Trump or has worked with or for him for the good of the country. Their relentless contempt might end up re-electing him.
On that score don’t underestimate how the refusal by a restaurant in Lexington, Virginia, to serve White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders will resonate politically. Ms. Sanders had taken a seat at the Red Hen with several others on Friday when owner Stephanie Wilkinson asked her to leave. Ms. Wilkinson told the press, which is turning her into Rosa Parks, that her restaurant “has certain standards that I feel it has to uphold, such as honesty, and compassion, and cooperation.”
Except toward people who don’t share Ms. Wilkinson’s views. Rest assured every Trump supporter in America will be reminded of this episode from here to November. The message: Now you’re so deplorable they won’t serve you in their restaurants.
One point however. We must say that “condescension” implies some sort of cultural authority. We see none from that crowd. Don’t make me mansplain it to you.
