The Left really does not get tolerance do they? Bullying, intimidation, threatening language on the other hand………
A Washington, D.C., bar was forced to apologize Saturday for hanging up a “Blue Lives Matter” flag outside its establishment after facing a backlash of anger.
Nellie’s Sports Bar displayed a pro-police flag at their restaurant because a group of gay police officers held a meeting there, reports Fox 5 DC. The blue flag angered some people who claimed it was offensive to the Black Lives Matter movement and represented “anti blackness.”
“Nellie’s Sports Bar is cancelled. In the wake of the murder of Stephon Clark and non indictment of the officers who killed Alton Sterling, they have the audacity to fly a flag that tells us they don’t value Black lives,” NoJusticeNoPride noted over Facebook.
Well, many cops are Black, and certainly many in Black neighborhoods with high crime rates want police presence to deter crime and arrest criminals. So, to say supporting police equals no valuing Black lives is asinine. And, I would wager that most Black people do not agree with such a foolish sentiment. But, sadly, the bar caved and grovelled to the new Brown Shirts
Nellie’s said they had flown the flag to try to support the gay cops who wanted to meet there. The sports bar eventually apologized for flying the flag, promised “learn from this” and trying to make their bar a “welcoming space” for everyone.
A welcoming place for everyone? Well not for police officers, not now that you have bowed to supporters of a left-wing, anti-cop group like BLM. Certainly not to anyone who is conservative. Not much to welcome them is there?
“We now understand that flying this flag — at this point in time, in particular — was at best tone deaf, and at worst offensive. We sincerely apologize to our customers and our neighbors for this egregious mistake, and want to assure you that this flag will never fly at Nellie’s again. What it represents to you is not what we want to represent, or what we want our bar to be,” the D.C. establishment said in a statement posted to Facebook.
Oh stop, for god’s sake just stop! Why do so many cower to ideological thugs? Do you think appeasing these bullies will gain you anything except more bullying when you cross some other line the bullies decide to put in place? The proper response, it would seem to me, consists of just two words. I think you can figure those words out
