Gay Hairdresser Refuses Service To Republican Governor, Liberals Silent
Last Resistance ^ | Mar 4, 2014 | Frank Camp

Oh, what a joy it is when a bad person makes a mistake that makes them into a hypocrite. Even better, it’s profoundly rewarding to see hypocrisy displayed on a national scale. And what’s even better that that? When it happens immediately following a triumph. The bigger they are, the harder they fall, and nothing is bigger at this moment than the liberal hatred of Arizona for what many liberals labeled the “anti-gay” law.

While I agree that the Arizona bill could have been written more precisely, and with a more adept legislative hand, the bill was clearly intended to protect the faithful from undue persecution. Any opinion to the contrary comes from the mouth of a moron, or an ideologue. Those ideologues and morons are the same people who stirred the pot, causing a national uproar over the religious protection bill which ultimately led to it being vetoed by Governor Jan Brewer. The uproar over the bill came from the Left, and was predicated on the assumption that the bill would lead to gays being discriminated against in the state of Arizona. Though the possibility of something like that occurring was minuscule at best, the backlash was so outstanding that Jan Brewer was practically forced to veto—that is, unless she wanted to be publicly attacked by a horde of liberals, and beaten to death in the town square. So it is with great joy that I mention a new development. According to multiple outlets, New Mexico Governor Susana Martinez was denied a haircut because of her stance on gay marriage. Antonio Darden, her gay hair stylist, had this to say: “The governor’s aides called not too long ago, wanting another appointment to come in…Because of her stances and her views on this I told her aides no.

Until this is brought up on Hannity, RUSH, Levin etc we can add conservatives silent as well.

Frankly, if somebody really doesn’t want to cut my hair, make my food, or anything, I’m just as happy to know about it. The last thing I’d want is for them to do “it” in a hostile, passive-aggressive way that I’ll have to suffer from.

What’s wrong with that? I’m not fond of being touched by gay men, so I’d consider that a bonus. As for the hypocrisy of the left, that is a nearly universal trait among liberals; one more example hardly registers.

This is so typical of the Rabid Left.

Just like I’d tell the potential homosexual clients of the religious bakers, florists and wedding planners: Find another place to shop!

The governor apparently did not go to the press then sue the hairdresser- this may explain the lack of interest, no screaming.

“Journalists”, also, like to have their stories handed to them, and a lawsuit generates lots of text to cut and paste.

If it weren’t for double standards liberals would have no standards at all.

Same here. I respect that they would be upfront about it so i don’t have to waste time there and spend my hard earned dough on these stupid bastards.

I imagine if all hair dressers did this there would be no one left to cut hair.
Excepting the hairdressers here at FR of course.

Exactly. But a really big stink should be made of it just the same with the statement: gays don’t want to be equal, they want to be better.

MLK, a hero to liberals, must have created enough centrifugal force to run all of the country’s electrical grid from his crypt.

The basic question here is, MAY WE ALL HAVE DIFFERENT BELIEFS AND BE TREATED THE SAME?

Can Protestants work for Catholics, Muslims serve Jews, liberals help conservative clients, gifted people hire disabled, the religious cook for atheists?

Or must we Balkanize into mini groups like liberals who like the color blue or Jews who jog?

Which is America going to be?

Hint: only one of those two choices is part of the communist plan. Don’t roll your eyes at the words “communist plan.” There is one, and it is not a plan of sharing and peace but a plan of control and serfdom.

This is a clear case of discrimination against Christians and the governor should have the hairdresser’s license revoked.

On my alumni blog, the liberals are saying it's not the same thing as the bakery discriminating against gays. Rather, the hairdresser is exercising his First Amendment right of free speech.

As I was shaking my head, the only picture that came to my mind was:

The original story happened on 2012.

Still all sorts of double standards on the left.

Perhaps some enterprising Conservative should report this hair stylist to the same govy agency that punished the Christian business owner.

I hope she sues his a** off. Too many times conservatives put up with leftist garbage instead of making them suffer. Religious discrimination is an important issue.

Thanks for the picture, I got a good laugh out of that as always. It’s one of my favorites, lol. I got two feral cats live under the porch and get that look sometimes. I often want to send this picture to Boehner.

Any private, non-government affiliated business should be allowed to refuse services and/or sales to anybody without any explanation for said refusals. Period.

I asked a gay lib friend who was all fired up about Arizona. I said that generally people can refuse service to anyone. Some even have signs up stating that. He said that was horrible! But he sure didn’t like these 2 articles. I love questioning his hypocrisy. Lol!

I thought New Mexico had a humans rights commission.

This needs to be brought before them.

There’s a lot more ‘anti-conservative’ than there is ‘anti-gay’... Odd that the ‘press’ never notices...

I think the homosexual hairdresser has the right to refuse doing someone’s hair because that customer is against his lifestyle.

I also think a business has the right to refuse to do business with a homosexual because they are against his or her lifestyle.

They can’t have it both ways.

I'll wager that this pervert doesn't refuse to service various pretty boys that he meets at his neighborhood bath house.

“Gay Hairdresser”.

Isn’t that redundant?

Ample opportunity for conservative activists. Go in advertising your Republicanism and far-right opinions and place an order. If refused service, sue them for everything they own.

Make sure state case law is in effect.

“Isn’t that redundant?”

No, and it’s this kind of stupid stereotyping that derails our credibility as conservatives. This matter is much more important than your need to take a tired, unclever swipe at this vindictive individual. Please try to stay on subject and bring a real argument to the table. We have far too much to lose in the upcoming elections to engage in such silliness.
