Isn’t it ironic that the political party that incessantly describes itself as open-minded and tolerant has in fact been displaying the most closed-minded and intolerant manner possible, engaging in utterly fascist behavior while simultaneously smearing its opponents as fascists?
Yes, we are talking about Democrats, and they are showing absolutely no signs of regaining their senses or calming down following their months-long temper tantrum in the wake of President Donald Trump’s election.
According to the Independent Journal Review, a group of left-wing activists just threatened to take the inevitable fight over repealing and replacing Obamacare to the streets, or more specifically to the restaurants of the Washington, D.C., metro area.

In a pair of since-deleted tweets, activist Scott Dworkin, head of a group calling itself the Democratic Coalition Against Trump, announced that his group was working with D.C.-area restaurants to deny service to any Republican members of Congress involved with the repeal of Obamacare.
“For fun we are working with DC restaurants & bars to ban Members of Congress who plan on repealing Obamacare #trumpleaks #theresistance,” he wrote.
Dworkin added that any restaurants that didn’t ban GOP members of Congress would be boycotted and shut down by his legion of angry activists.

“Restaurants who don’t ban Members will be boycotted by DC residents & close down. We’ve done it before — It worked #trumpleaks #theresistance,” Dworkin wrote.
However, it appeared that Dworkin didn’t quite comprehend the full ramifications of what he was calling for, though there were plenty of conservatives who were more than happy to point them out to him, according to LifeZette.
“The Democrats’ boycott efforts are hypocritical, considering that many of these D.C. restaurants are unable to hire their employees full-time because of the negative effects of Obamacare,” said GOP operative Mercedes Schlapp. “Keep the fight inside of Congress instead of trying to push these restaurants to not provide services to GOP members of Congress.”
Many of the restaurant owners and employees under threat of boycott probably already don’t support Trump and probably voted for Democrat presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, if they voted at all, in the overwhelmingly Democrat District of Columbia.
More than a few people pointed out the utter hypocrisy of the Democrats, who just a couple of years ago said that private businesses had no right to deny service to anybody for any reason yet who are now calling for the exact thing they recently condemned — denial of service for personally held beliefs.
“Aren’t these the same activists who insisted that Christian bakers and florists who object to same-sex marriage on religious (grounds) should nevertheless be required to perform service against their will?” asked Jenny Beth Martin, co-founder of the Tea Party Patriots. “So it’s OK to withhold service on political grounds and not on religious grounds?”
In the end, this is just another temper tantrum from spoiled and entitled liberals who have shielded themselves from reality and from the fact that the political winds have shifted away from them in this country.

Their boycott, should they actually attempt it, will only backfire by making them look even more like childish idiots while actually hurting the employees and business owners they claim to support.
Please share this on Facebook and Twitter to spread the word that Democrat activists are threatening to boycott and shut down D.C. restaurants that serve Republican members of Congress.
