Here is Russ Vaughn trying to explain to conservatives what they should know by now about the power of the dominant media but don’t seem to:
A gay couple walks into a Christian deli/bakery in Texas wanting to order a wedding cake and associated catering services, and the owners refuse on the basis that their strongly held religious beliefs consider homosexuality an abomination and thus forbid their participation. What’s likely to happen next? We all know that the local media, tipped off by gay activists who were just waiting for the expected response, will immediately pick up on the story and present it as another example of homophobia and discrimination against members of the gay community. The local lead will be grabbed by the national liberal media and whipped into a froth of indignation, setting the scene for a federal discrimination lawsuit based on violations of the gay couple’s constitutional right to equal treatment as American citizens.
At the same time as that gay couple walks into the bakery, just a couple of doors down the street, a medically retired sergeant first class, an Army infantryman with a Purple Heart earned for the loss of his lower right leg during the last of his multiple combat tours in the Middle East, walks into a national coffee chain with his son and orders two large black coffees, no cream, no sugar, no nothing but coffee. The barista notices the .45-caliber semi-automatic pistol holstered on the sergeant’s hip and tells him he must leave, as no firearms are permitted on the premises, as a sign by the entrance clearly explains. The sergeant apologizes for failing to notice the sign, and he limps out quietly, followed by his bewildered young son. No gun rights protesters are waiting outside to begin a loud demonstration, no local TV station has been alerted, and there most certainly will be no high-publicity lawsuits filed.
