Liberal Totalitarianism comes to New York.
But what's most horrifying in Dromm's remarks is his final say on the matter. You would think that maybe his first statement of unwelcomeness was a knee-jerk and misinformed reaction. What if he were told that Chick-fil-A's CEO has repeatedly said that he has no intention of bringing the company into the political debate surrounding the issue of marriage?
From HuffPost [emphasis added]:
... Dromm, the city councilman, said there was no place for Chick-fil-A in New York, even if it remains out of the political fray.
“We don’t need bigoted people even keeping their opinions to themselves,” he said. “They need to wake up and see reality.”
Not only is the sleight of "bigot," directed toward those who hold marriage to be the union of a man and a woman, completely unfair, mean-spirited, and wide of the mark. More than that: here we have the most compelling proof one could want of Ryan Anderson's assertion that the gay rights community is engaged in a "scorched earth" policy of bigotry and intolerance.
