There are seemingly endless ways in which The Resistance of the liberal left is attempting to derail the Trump presidency, and petty bickering is in no short supply.
The entire “resistance” chic is built around the idea of this. At any time, for any reason, those in faux-rebellion feel as though they should be working to delegitimize and demean The Donald and his followers. They will work ceaselessly to interject their political leanings into each and every conversation possible, hoping to find likeminded lunatics who truly wish to see the nation torn asunder by political violence.
Or, worse yet, they are trying to completely rewrite the First Amendment.
Now, after one such member of the radicalizing left decided to publicly shame White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders, they are learning a hard lesson in the economics of dissent.
A small town in Virginia is trying to recover its image after The Red Hen restaurant famously refused to serve President Donald Trump’s spokeswoman, Sarah Huckabee Sanders.
The Roanoke Times reported Sunday that a regional tourism board is pulling together emergency funds to boost its digital marketing campaign.
Normally that money is saved. But officials agreed the region is in desperate need of positive coverage.
The tourism board serves Lexington, where The Red Hen is located, and other communities that are about three hours from Washington.
The normalization of this sort of behavior is disturbing in its own right, but the exponential escalation of this vitriol is what it truly terrifying.
The hysteria is contagious, in other words, spreading from person to person with the virility of Hillary Clinton’s “pneumonia”.
