My first smile of the day came from this…
Earlier today, from what I can tell, the restaurant The Bistro at the Bijou in Knoxville refused service to one Sen. Stacey Campfield. They posted a FB message that said, “I hope that Stacy Campfield now knows what if feels like to be unfairly discriminated against.” From all that I can ascertain, that was a response to not serving him for his well documented views of ignorance and bigotry towards the GLBT community.
Stacy, Stacy, Stacy… Society has an obligation to discriminate against unhealthy behaviors such as yours. Didn’t you see that study the other day that proved that conservatives are stupid and that stupidity is caused by a virus that first came to this country when a conservative had sex with a monkey disguised as an airline pilot who flew Twilight Zone flight zero from Atlantis to Area 51? I know you’ve read it, it’s one of Paul Cameron’s.
[Update…] So we don’t know what specifically happened here, if anything. But if that braying jackass really was given attitude by The Bistro for his strikingly ostentatious ignorance it’s definitely on my list of places to eat next time I’m in Nashville. Yes, yes…an eye for an eye blinds us all…and so on. But it isn’t unreasonable to ask the man who’s busy slamming doors in other people’s faces to get a few slammed into his from time to time. Mr. Campfield, good fences may make good neighbors, but you can’t make a nation out of fences.
