Rarely do I get involved in the politics of a store, because I am not going there for their politics and not everything has to be about politics.
For example, I am good friends with a neighbor who is more liberal-leaning than I had originally known, but that doesn’t mean I still don’t collect his mail when he goes on vacation and that doesn’t mean that I am not still a friend to him and his family.
It means that there is something we don’t agree on, and then we don’t have to have meltdowns over political issues. Most liberals, however, are the type of people that make such a big deal out of the politics of someone that they have to have a fit if things divert slightly from the way they feel.
Sigh. Apparently, triggered liberals have taken a break from being outraged over your insufficient mask habits and your unwillingness to kneel to go after Hobby Lobby again.
The last time the Left was spun up by Hobby Lobby, the Christian-based craft store chain was accused of using “racist” cotton. Before that, they were scorned for refusing to cover abortions for their employees in their health insurance plans in defiance of ObamaCare. The case went to the U.S. Supreme Court, which decided that the business, which is closed on Sundays, was sufficiently Christian-y enough to opt out of paying for killing babies.
It’s as if there’s a boiler room full of idea-guys. Someone stands at a racist whiteboard as the ideas of what next to be offended by are shot out like .223 rounds at the range.
And, guess what? There is. Newsweek reports that the “what next” came from the anti-Trump Lincoln Project Facebook page, which highlighted this sign made by someone at one of the Hobby Lobby stores.

Hobby Lobby is facing fresh calls to boycott the arts and craft giant as a pro-Trump display was spotted at one of its stores. A photo of a display reading “USA vote Trump” in decorative letters was shared in a tweet that has now gone viral.
Kari Brekke shared a photo of the display, which was originally posted in Lincoln Project Group on Facebook, in a tweet that currently has thousands of likes and shares.
Some butt-hurt Lefties decided that the chain must have had some sinister motive for allowing that sign to be put up.
Emily Zanotti appealed to Newsweek’s readers’ common sense: “People. Randos rearrange decorative letters at hobby stores all the time. Please tell me you’re not this dumb.”
