Boston mayor Thomas Menino said to Boston Herald yesterday: “Chick-fil-A doesn’t belong in Boston. You can’t have a business in the city of Boston that discriminates against a population. We’re an open city, we’re a city that’s at the forefront of inclusion. That’s the Freedom Trail. That’s where it all started right here. And we’re not going to have a company, Chick-fil-A or whatever the hell the name is, on our Freedom Trail.”
This was no more a gaffe than president Obama's or Elizabeth Warren's words denigrating profits and the private sector. No, this is what progressive liberals are all about!
Do you ever see a conservative mayor or a governor preventing Ben and Jerry - two former hippies who are active in just about every progressive cause from gay marriage to totally unrestricted abortions which, among others, account for the genocide of 50% of black babies - from doing business in their city or state? Of course not!
Conservatives believe in the Constitution and its underlying philosophy of inalienable individual liberties, including believing in whatever you want to believe in no matter how disagreeable it may be. Progressives on the other hand have no tolerance for other points of view, as mayor Menino clearly displayed once again.
Imagine an America where an official can ban a business from operating because that business does not agree with him. Unimaginable? Think again. It is already here, America.
