Same Far Left Mayor Who Attacked Chick-Fil-A Blasts Trump’s Refugee Pause As ‘Affront To Religious Liberty’
WITH THE LEFT IT’S ALL ABOUT PICKING FAVORITES AND A DOUBLE STANDARDS…
New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio came out with guns blazing (well that would be true if he was actually pro-Second Amendment) against President Donald Trump’s executive order on immigration.
De Blazio stated that the orders were an affront to religious liberty. One might actually pause for a second and take notice, if it were for not the fact that de Blazio was duplicitous in his speech and had quite a different take on religious liberty when it came to Chick-Fil-A. That is correct. The same individual who called Trump’s legal and constitutional actions an affront to religious liberty is the same man who “illegally” and unethically tried to drive Chick-Fil-A out of business in New York City.
De Blazio urged NY’ers not to patronize the eating establishments and actually called for boycotts because the mayor did not agree with the restaurant founders position on gay marriage. So de Blazio is against the legal action by a president, but used the power of his political office to affect a boycott of a privately owned business. And that was all because of his personal beliefs.
Welcome to the double standard of the Left.
Via The Daily Caller:
New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio has come out swinging against President Donald Trump’s executive order on immigration as an affront to religious liberty, but in the past, de Blasio pushed for a city-wide boycott of Chick-fil-A because the company’s president came out in support of traditional marriage.
In an interview with CNN on Sunday, de Blasio slammed Trump’s executive order temporarily suspending travel from seven countries that are majority Muslim and said the order should be “chilling to anyone in America who cares about religious liberty.”
In My 2016, de Blasio told New Yorkers to boycott Chick-fil-A after it opened a new restaurant in Queens Center Mall.
“What the ownership of Chick-fil-A has said is wrong,” he said. “I’m certainly not going to patronize them and I wouldn’t urge any other New Yorker to patronize them. But they do have a legal right.”
