Yes, that’s bakeries plural.
Stephen Crowder (a Conservative humorist and commentator) went to multiple bakeries in Dearborn Michigan and could find a single Muslim bakery that would bake him a wedding cake celebrating gay marriage.
here’s the video:
But this post is not about how Muslims are big fat bigots and homophobes for not wanting to bake a cake for a gay couple. We support the Muslim bakers’ rights to refuse service just as much as we support the Christians. As a matter of fact, I’ll take it a step further than Crowder does in his video and say that we believe any private establishment should have the liberty to refuse service to anyone for any reason. That doesn’t mean that they should or that it’s moral. We loath bigoted discrimination but we just don’t like the government forcing people to do business when they don’t want to. So, no, this is not about hating on the Muslim bakery at all. Good for them for sticking with their convictions! We wouldn’t want a baker to be forced to write anti-gay slurs on a cake either (yes, that an actual lawsuit that’s happening right now).
No, this is a story about media bias. You see, when the media baited a Christian pizzeria owner into saying that she probably wouldn’t cater a gay wedding, the media went ballistic! There have already been thousands of stories written about Memories Pizza…nay, 1.6 MILLION!
And what about the Muslim bakers in Dearborn? Not a peep from the mainstream media. At the time of writing this article, Google News only shows only 9 outlets that have covered this story and all of them are Conservative alternative media outlets.
Where is the outrage? Where are the lawsuits? Where is the media frenzy? Where are the cries of bigotry and intolerance? Nowhere to be found because the Muslim bakeries don’t fit the media narrative of oppressive Christians stamping on gay rights.
The media doesn’t care about bigotry or intolerance. They care about whipping people into a frenzy because it benefits their chosen politicians and makes them money.
