TDS is real: Liberals cannot put politics aside to enjoy family during Thanksgiving

Imagine how miserable it must be to go through life hating family members because they disagree with your politics. Liberals really aren’t capable of co-existing with anyone who disagrees with them.

Case in Point: I came across this tweet yesterday from some no-name, blue check-marked Tony Posnanski: “I will be changing my wifi password to “IMPEACH45” this Thursday so that my MAGA family members have to put that in their devices to have some of my delicious WiFi.”

Some of the replies verify that liberals are a very intolerant and childish bunch:

“My MAGA family members no longer come over for Thanksgiving. The day after the 2016 election, I cancelled our Thanksgiving gathering because I knew I could not handle their gloating, and they have not spoken to me since. I guess that is something to truly be thankful for.

“I may have on occasion blocked FoxNews with parental controls on our TV from my … well… parents.”

“Love it. One day when nobody was around, I password locked Fox News on the lobby TV at my Dad’s dialysis clinic.”

“Brilliant. I “parental control” Fox News off the remotes which leaves them scratching their heads, bless their hearts

“Everybody has MAGA family. Some of us are lucky enough that the worst of the MAGA red hats died this year. (Step in-law. Not someone we actually cared about.)

I blocked fox so my MAGAt uncle can’t watch it when he visits my grandma. The code to bypass the block is his birthday and three years later he still hasn’t figured it out.”

Pettiness ain’t very pretty…

High school declines free Chick-fil-A lunch because of their LGBT views

Stories like this just prompt us to visit CFA, which we’ll be doing today for lunch.

From Fox News: The principal of a New Orleans high school said his staffers have no desire to “eat mor chikin,” as the administrator turned down a free lunch for teachers catered by Chick-fil-A over what he alleges are the company’s “views” toward the LGBTQ community.

On Oct. 10, Steven Corbett, principal of Lusher High School, said that he had recently declined a free lunch from the chicken-centric chain for his employees, provided through the College Football Playoff Foundation (CFPF), explaining that the restaurant’s values do not align with those of the school.

“Out of respect to our LGBTQ staff, we have chosen to not serve Chick-fil-A at an employee lunch. The #1 rule at Lusher is to ‘Be Kind’ and we live this motto every day,” Corbett told WWL-TV. “Chick-fil-A has been politically outspoken about its views, and we feel it is not part of Lusher’s culture of kindness and community.”

“Anytime an organization is anti-LGBTQ, and has efforts to infringe upon their rights, we thought it was important to support and stand up for their community at this time,” the principal told WDSU, doubling down on his argument.

The catered lunch was reportedly scheduled to take place on Friday, according to WWL-TV.

In response, a spokesperson for the CFPF said that the organization understood, and that teachers at the charter school would receive a meal from another restaurant. “[We are just] glad teachers will have a good lunch tomorrow,” spokesperson Tony Fay said.

Fay added that the teacher’s lunch for Lusher High School staff is one of “several” initiatives the CFPF is launching to thank the New Orleans community for hosting the Sugar Bowl and College Football Championship in 2020.

So easily triggered: Army vet asked not to wear “2016 Trump for President” t-shirt at gym

Imagine being so sensitive that you can’t ignore someone’s t-shirt. Libtards need to grow a thicker skin.

From Yahoo: An Army veteran says he was asked not to wear a shirt that read “2016 Trump for President” at a gym in Troy, Mo., on the ground that it made members uncomfortable and was “racist.”

Staff Sgt. Jake Talbot told St. Louis news station KMOV that he had worn the pro-Trump shirt to CDY Fitness in Troy before. But on Sunday, the owner of the gym asked him not to wear the political shirt again.

“I was just puzzled there for a second. She said that it was racist and represents racism and that’s when I when I was like ‘Oh, you’re done,’” Talbot told the outlet.

Talbot, who had been a member of the gym for eight years, took to Facebook to voice his displeasure over the incident.

He says in the video that the gym owner, whom he refers to as ‘Liz,’ said the shirt was linked to “racism,” adding, “Which I freaking hate that word, it’s thrown around way too loosely. It’s 2019, get the hell over it. It’s not racism.”

The owner, whom the St. Louis Post-Dispatch identifies as Liz Drew, released a statement on the gym’s Facebook page, which has since been deleted from the social media platform.

According to KMOV, the message read, “I am deeply saddened by the amount of hate this event has garnered. I will personally and publicly continue to defend my stance for tolerance and against hate no matter the financial consequence. … Allow me to clarify. I don’t believe our gym should be a political forum for anyone. I want everyone to feel safe and comfortable there. We are all trying to improve ourselves and work hard to change.”

Members of CDY are divided, and some have threatened to cancel their membership over the T-shirt incident, according to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.

On Wednesday morning, gym owner Liz Drew told the Post-Dispatch that she had deleted the gym’s Facebook account after receiving thousands of hateful messages, including threats to burn down her gym. “This was about protecting the comfort level of all members and keeping politics out of my gym. Sadly, it has done just the opposite,” she said.

She disputed Talbot’s claim that she told him to remove the shirt. “I said, ‘Jake, we’re friends and I love you, but I’d appreciate it if you didn’t wear that shirt in the future,’” Drew told the Post-Dispatch.

The gym’s owner, however, legally did nothing wrong and was legally entitled to ask Talbot not to wear the shirt. Attorney Lynette Petruska told KMOV, “The business owner really didn’t violate any First Amendment or anti-discrimination law.”

Another gym in Talbot’s area has offered him a free one-year membership after his Facebook video went viral, according to St. Louis news station KSDK.

Jake Talbot did not immediately respond to Yahoo Lifestyle’s requests for comment.
