    Iíd also think this was a pretty clear call from a libertarian perspective, and itís obviously speech policingóand, unlike almost everything else in this thread, itís being done by the government.
    Want to disagree with you but the logic is too strong.

    You are right and the example infused is. Ot a good comp.

    As I said, I dont support the government regulating this stuff as its up to the consumer to be informed about what they eating, in my opinion.

    But yes, this is speech policing and not good. Sets a bad precedent and could lead to other states doing something similar.

    I am glad that there is still some speech policing that will get goldy riled up though

One biracial performer pulled out of the event over the absurdity of it all, so at least there was one voice of reason...
    I'm not sure why this is different than the Colorado baker... but I should not be surprised there isn't any outrage from the left on this board about this racism.

    I saw a few other stories of businesses who charged a "man tax" and a "white privilege " tax.

    Luckily they closed down

    I went back and checked my last 10 posts of new content in this thread...

    1. Festival charging white people more money to enter

    2. Nike pulling Betsy Ross flag over liberal outrage

    3. Girl bragging about her gay money going to chick films a (just laughing at that stupidity)

    4. NBA teams not using the word "owner" anymore

    5. Amazon auto search filling in PC search terms rather than pans

    6. A bunch of outlets celebrating children being at weirdly sexual events

    7. A school district deciding boys can now play in girls sports

    8. Yet another person suing the Colorado baker

    9. Researchers studying the oppression of dodgeball

    10. A publicly posted sign in Oregon saying it's not ok to date white people


    Curious which of those compares to the non-outrage of mermaid Balley
