Liberal Hypocrisy: Apparently Non-Discrimination Only Applies to Conservatives

By Dustin Siggins Published on November 21, 2016

A disgruntled liberal who says “discrimination” is wrong says she’ll discriminate against America’s most prominent immigrant because of her choice of husband:

A fashion designer whose styles have been sported by Michelle Obama is boycotting dressing Melania Trump, saying she encourages “my fellow designers to do the same” when it comes to outfitting the next first lady.

“As one who celebrates and strives for diversity, individual freedom and respect for all lifestyles, I will not participate in dressing or associating in any way with the next First Lady,” Sophie Theallet wrote in a letter this week.

“The rhetoric of racism, sexism, and xenophobia unleashed by her husband’s presidential campaign are incompatible with the shared values we live by,” Theallet wrote about President-elect Donald Trump.

“I encourage my fellow designers to do the same,” she continued.

“I am well aware it is not wise to get involved in politics,” the fashion maven wrote. “That said, as a family-owned company, our bottom line is not just about money. We value our artistic freedom and always humbly seek to contribute to a more humane, conscious and ethical way to create in this world.”

For years, conservatives have been accused of bigotry, hatred and more for not celebrating the issue of the day propagated by liberals. Opposing abortion means we hate women, stopping illegal immigration means we think brown-skinned people are sub-human and upholding the rule of law in cities means we want to keep blacks down (even though America’s largest cities have long been run by Democrats).

The two new causes célèbres have been non-discrimination laws that consist of state-sanctioned attacks on the beliefs of Christians who may not want to participate in, or otherwise endorse, the LGBT agenda. A lawsuit in Washington State based around such a law could cause a 72-year old florist to lose everything she owns because of her beliefs about marriage, and priests in Massachusetts could be jailed for using biologically accurate pronouns.

Will liberals defend Melania Trump from this hypocrisy? After all, they stood up for Hillary Clinton when she enabled her husband’s abuse of women. All Melania did was marry Donald Trump.

    ”priests in Massachusetts could be jailed for using biologically accurate pronouns.” dumb reason to send someone to Jail. why not send people to jail for actual crimes? such as shooting? and raping? not for stupidity like this. what it with these liberals and homosexuals?

    Liberals take for granted that THEY have the RIGHT to discriminate against whoever they want, for any reason they want. And they also take for granted that THEY have the right to dictate to non-liberals who they are allowed to discriminate against. Liberals claim to be for “freedom”, but they really just want freedom for themselves, and bondage for everyone else.

      If you don’t agree with their ideals, you are a bigot, but if they don’t agree with our ideals, they are not. How strange !

    It is ironically funny that this designer does not see that the new First Lady, a legal immigrant as well as a model with a husband who used to be a democrat (and still has those leanings) is not worthy of her dress designs. Her loss I guess for nebulous reasoning.

    They should tell Sophie “Glad to hear it. Melania has her own people and has absolutely zero need for your input or interest in your overrated hideous design work.”

    This is something the libs don’t yet get. Trump is a historic president for many reasons, but one of them is that he already has everything he needs. He already lives a presidential-type lifestyle. He has his own people for everything. The Obamas came in and immediately took full advantage of all the free stuff. Like being on cruise. How many tens of millions did we spend flying Mooch and the kids all over the world (sans Barack) for vacation? They were thrilled to have use of their own jet. Trump OWNS his own jet. They stayed at high end hotels, he OWNS high end hotels.

    The people who normally swoop in to provide high end services to incoming presidents are simply not needed and will be treated as such.

    Is it actually discrimination if you just say it or write it – as the designer did? Wouldn’t it only be discrimination, in the legal sense, if Melania had asked Sophie Theallet to be her designer and she made this statement in response? Just wondering.

    Liberals tolerate only those who think exactly like they do. Otherwise, they are the most intolerant people of all.
