Sarah Sanders vs. The Red Hen

I'm reading some very good arguments at Facebook and other places as to why Sarah Sanders should not have been asked to leave The Red Hen. 

In normal times, I would probably agree. 

But she's a willing participant to this regime's efforts to marginalize, persecute, humiliate and torture others. (Yes, I did say torture - what else do you call separating babies and very young children from their families and sending them off somewhere and then "lose" them?) 

She is a mouthpiece for this administration.

And she continued in that role when she tweeted about this incident using a White House twitter account.

For that reason, I stand with Ms. Wilkinson of The Red Hen. The owner of The Red Hen.

This statement does it for me - "This feels like the moment in our democracy when people have to make uncomfortable actions and decisions to uphold their morals.”

AND, not just morals. 


Blame The Supreme Court. 

If "some" businesses such as Walgreen's who employees pharmacists who don't have to do what they're paid to do if it interferes with their morals, beliefs, religion, whatever. 

If bakers don't have to bake cakes for gay couples because it interferes with their morals, etc., then they have opened the doors for The Red Hen and any place else that wants to use the same reasoning. 

Sarah Sanders made me laugh when she said she always treats people with respect. 


Then who on earth is that look-alike holding press briefings in the White House who is not, indeed, NOT always respectful to the journalists who are doing their jobs? 

This administration is, in my opinion, corrupt as all hell.


And pushing the limits of human rights. 

YOU stand by and accept it if you want. 

Or resist. 

Pretend you were living in Hitler's Germany - what would you have done? Would you have helped the aggressor and been polite? 

Fed her at your place of business? 

With a smile? 

Or stood up for what's right, and good, and decent? 

Believe me - I'm not trying to change anybody's mind, but I would ask, respectfully, that you not to try to change mine.
