Left-wingers got a big reminder that elections have consequences, especially when it comes to the Supreme Court, and some are throwing a temper tantrum by taking out their anger on supporters of former President Donald J. Trump who appointed three of the conservative justices who ruled in favor of Lorie Smith, a Christian graphic designer from Colorado who did not want to create websites for same-sex weddings.
Trump appointees Neil Gorsuch, Brett Kavanaugh, and Amy Coney Barrett were a part of the 6-3 majority that decided the state of Colorado was violating Smith’s First Amendment rights by trying to force her to create websites for homosexuals under its anti-discrimination law despite her religious beliefs, a ruling that has been falsely portrayed by leftists as an attack on the rights of the LGBTQ+ community.
While leftists including openly gay Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg embarked on a smear campaign to insinuate that Smith is a liar, others resorted to banning conservatives from their businesses with an image of one sign going viral on social media where it was the subject of a lively discussion.

“SINCE THE SUPREME COURT HAD RULED THAT BUSINESSES CAN DISCRIMINATE…NO SALES TO TRUMP SUPPORTERS,” read the sign at a small business establishment.
Another sign on the same window read, “WE ONLY SELL TO CHURCHES THAT FLY A PRIDE FLAG.”
Twitter users reacted to the seemingly self-defeating message of the business owner who would alienate potential customers and lose money in order to make a political statement.
I accept these terms. It’s better than unknowingly filling the pockets of business owners who are closeted leftists. The transparency is appreciated.

The rationality and reasoning of the left has all the depth of a bumper sticker.

This is what people used to call, “Cutting off your nose to spite your face.”

If someone doesn’t want my business, I’ll just go elsewhere. I don’t want to do business with someone who hates me.

One user suggested that the reaction was at least partially driven by LGBTQ+ people being denied service, a cooked-up narrative peddled by leftists including President Joe Biden who last month claimed without giving any specific examples that gay people were being tossed out of restaurants.
“I guess gay people are sick and tired of being refused business for being gay. I personally think it’s stupid for both sides to do this,” wrote the user whose Twitter bio identifies himself as a former Trump supporter.

The claim was scoffed at by others on Twitter who weren’t buying it.
I’ll take things that never happened for $500, Alex!

Gay people were never refused business for being gay. People with deeply held religious beliefs opted to not to violate their religion. In every case involed gay people could buy a cakes that had been made or have people design websites for events.
