Freedom for Thee, but Not for Me

“If it weren’t for double standards, they’d have no standards at all.” So says radio talk show host Chris Plante about liberals. Here is yet another example of liberal hypocrisy – it is okay for them to discriminate based on viewpoint, all the while decrying viewpoint discrimination by those who don’t agree with them.

A group promoting North Carolina’s HB2 (the so called “bathroom bill”) were filming two ads in support of the new law.  They had gathered at the venue with the  women who were to appear in the ad, actual victims of abuse in public facilities, with the make-up artist who was to get them camera-ready. The make-up artist asked about the shoot. When she was told that it was an ad in support of HB2, she abruptly made a phone call, and then informed the group that she could not stay and finish the job because she was opposed to its content. She immediately left.

If the Christian baker has to bake the cake for the gay wedding, why doesn’t the liberal make-up artist not have to do her job for the conservative group?   Nice display of tolerance, liberals.
