News that I missed, courtesy of The Babylon Bee:

 

WASHINGTON, D.C.—Under intense pressure from their left-leaning constituents to do something about the dangerous, Christian-founded restaurant chain, Democrats in the House of Representatives unveiled legislation Tuesday that would make it a hate crime to eat at Chick-fil-A.

The CFAHATE Act Of 2018 would make it a hate crime punishable by federal law to dine at the restaurant or use its drive-thru, with extra punishments for people who post that they’re eating at the restaurant on their social media accounts. The legislation would also impose heftier penalties for anyone who patronizes the extremist hate group’s chicken sandwich establishments during Pride Month.

“We want people making fast-food dining choices to think carefully about a restaurant’s background,” House Minority Leader and bill co-sponsor Nancy Pelosi said in a video posted to her official YouTube account. “If a restaurant’s leadership is associated with Christian values in any way, frequenting their locations amounts to literal violence against minorities, women, and the LGBTQ+ community.”

According to Pelosi, the legislation was rushed into motion after Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey posted that he was eating at Chick-fil-A on his Twitter account over the weekend, and was later forced to apologize after weathering severe criticism by progressives. Federal agents found they were unable to prosecute him, since eating at a Christian-owned restaurant wasn’t “technically” defined as a hate crime under United States law.

Go here to read the rest.  In crazy times satirists find it hard to keep up with insane reality.

Even in Stalin’s Soviet Union, I do not think a food choice was ever considered a political choice.  Whole populations were starved in man made famines, but even Stalin’s butchers of the NKVD would have regarded the concept of “hate food” as insane.

  1. Actually Don… maybe that explains it all: The soviets were just doing their best to protect their citizens from all that hate food.

    Which included all food.

  2. In an age which already has seen banks refusing to approve credit extension to businesses that sell lawful firearms, is it really that much of a stretch to imagine that something such as this could happen? I dont think it is. Future headline: “Major Banks Announce Ban On Credit Card Transactions With Merchants On SPLC Hate Group List.”
    Unfortunately I’m not able to think of any way, short of legislation, to stop that from happening, and even if such legislation were to pass I’d bet the Loony Left would find some US District Judge who would declare it unconstitutional throughout the cosmos. But I retired from active law practice 5 1/2 years ago, so maybe I’ve missed something. 🙂

  3. Stalin was an old green deal advocate.
    (Less for them – more for me.)

    I agree with Frank that this parody might become non-fiction in a culture that thrives on decadence. The left have paved the way for degeneration and created a thoroughfare of disordered individuals being celebrated for their perversions.

    Thank goodness we have a strong straight Holy Church with straight strong men who stand boldly against the culture…sarcasm again…oops.

    God help us.

    You’re right, the Holy Church does have straight strong men, just not in the clergy. We’re sitting in the pews.
