#6253: My, they really don't like that very much, do they?

Leftists are upset, of course. Trump administration sugar honey baby Sarah Sanders tweeted about a restaurant which demanded she leave because of who she works for:
Sarah Sanders@PressSec
Last night I was told by the owner of Red Hen in Lexington, VA to leave because I work for @POTUS and I politely left. Her actions say far more about her than about me. I always do my best to treat people, including those I disagree with, respectfully and will continue to do so
...and the lefties are losing their shit over it.

The thing is, the owners of the shithole have every right to deny service to anyone they want, for any reason--that's called "freedom of association" and the Supreme Court heard a case about a baker not too long ago--but anyone who is "asked to leave" has every right to talk about it, too.

If you throw me out of your restaurant because I work for Donald Trump, I have the right to tell people. I'm not forced to take it just because I work for the President.

I can tell you leftists are all confused on that point, so let me spell it out for you: in the past, most Republicans would be civil and take such asinine behavior in stride, because generally speaking the right wing is above petty bullshit like that. It's called "forebearance"; it's being nice because your childish nonsense isn't worth getting upset over.

We tried to be nice and civil, but you're not interested in niceness or civility. And you seem to think that just because we didn't hit back before, now we are required not to hit back at all. But we were never required to take any of it laying down.

So here's a handy tip for you: if you play nice with us, we'll play nice with you. But if you want things to be acrimonious, we can easily do that, and you will rapidly come to find out just how badly that hurts you.

Like Karl Denninger, I do not expect that craptastic eatery to remain open much longer. Life sucks when you're stupid.

No, schools have never done anything about bullying. The socialized school system's response is to punish the bullied person for reacting to it. The bullies are never punished.

I have story after story after story about my time in the socialized educational system where I was bullied by idiots, and I will tell you right now that in each and every case where I fought back I was punished more severely than the bully was. Every time.

And from time to time I've pointed out this or that story from around the country where this or that bully got his clock cleaned by his victim, and the victim was punished. In one example, the bully was a scrawny little shit and his victim was at least twice his size, and when the victim was finally pushed too far he picked the bully up and bodyslammed him into the ground. Who do you think got in trouble for that event?

Hint: it was not the bully.

That kind of thing makes it open season on unpopular kids. No matter what the school's policy is on fighting, if you're teasing a kid and he snaps and decks you, he'll get punished and you'll get off scott free. Hilarious! Right?

I can't even imagine what it's like for girls. Girl bullying is entirely emotional.

Well, it's finally Saturday night. Can't believe it.

Oh, wait--technically it's Sunday morning already. *sigh*
