Thou shalt not mock progressive deities.
The owner of a French restaurant in Dallas took great exception to Donald Trump Jr. and Republican Sen. Ted Cruz having a little fun at his establishment.
The ruckus is over a photo Trump Jr. posted on Instagram while attending a birthday celebration at Le Bilboquet. The image featured a cake, or cookie-cake, bearing the likeness of liberal messiah Barack Obama.
A cake that, according to the owner, promoted disrespect and spread hatred.
“With friends like these… some good friends decided that while my birthday is not for 2 weeks that they would get me an early 40th birthday cake. And what birthday is complete without an Obama cake? I figured it was so good that I would have to share it with Ted,” the caption read.

Naturally, the photo stirred Obama disciples and the reaction prompted the owner of Le Bilboquet, Stephan Courseau, to take to Instagram to denounce the patrons of his establishment, according to Eatery.com.
Courseau’s Instagram message of tolerance displayed no tolerance for having a little fun at Obama’s expense.
“We at Le Bilboquet feel betrayed and sad,” the owner stated in the now deleted post. “Restaurant business is about creating a hospitable environment for all, a non-partisan, non-politicized, nondiscriminatory and respectful environment. The fact that guests decided to use our restaurant as a platform to promote, disrespect, and spread hatred goes against everything we stand for. On a personal note, I am French and my wife is Mexican. We both believe in universal values of love, respect and tolerance.”
Courseau also addressed the issue on Facebook, but would also delete that post.
Perhaps his introduction to politics in post-Obama America proved to be more than his sensibilities could handle.
“Let me be clear, I share your indignation without any reservation,” Courseau wrote, according to the Dallas Observer.
“Both Donald Trump Jr. and Ted Cruz were attending a birthday celebration of one of our regular patrons who rented out our venue for a private event,” he said. “The party was not for either one of them nor was it any kind of partisan rally.
“Someone that attended the party brought in an outside cake for Donald Trump Jr.’s upcoming birthday and we are not sure who that was. Both Donald Trump Jr. and Ted Cruz took pictures with the cake and posted on social media outlets.”
All this over a cake? Or was it a cookie? In other news, America has completely lost its sense of humor.
