So what's your problem then, apart from more anti-leftist nonsense about hate crimes?
The problem is that OD's comic is incorrect.

I can give a concrete example of this. The mileage tax that the working class heroes of Joe Biden and Pete Buttigig wanted to implement royally screws over anyone who doesn't live near public transport and has to use a car to drive around.

You're making assumptions.

The reason I only mentioned the compelled speech part is that it wasn't a case of him not serving a customer. He was perfectly happy to bake them other cakes or to provide service. He just refused to bake a wedding cake they demanded.
If you are as familiar with the case as you claim then you would know this. That is why the SCOTUS ruling was correct.

:ROFL: :ROFL: Sure buddy

Weird how we never hear you rail against corporate welfare the way you do about social.
Oh yes we do. Weird that suddenly SAA doesn't exist in your bobble :unsure:

I hope you're not one of those disillusioned people that thought the tax cuts only benefited the rich and corporations.

He's in the crowd that incorrectly believe the tax cuts only benefitted the rich so I wouldn't value his view or jokes on economics too highly.

Wut?

Everything I said in that post was against the concept of corporate welfare. You decrease the size of government, you reduce its ability to pick winners and losers.

Progressives on the other hand want the state to be a part of every facet of society, yet are under the delusion that state power won't cause corruption.

Sure, you'll respond to corporate welfare criticisms with a lukewarm 'ya that shouldn't happen', but whenever it's your usual unprompted 'm'uh socialism' or 'damn commies' rant, it's never against corporate welfare.

And yet you cannot justify how the anti-vaccinated guy is not being neutral to the shopkeepers religious beliefs and his expression of religious speech?
I did. However you seem unable to see the difference. Just like with the crime stats.

If a store owner refuses to bake a certain cake for a un-vaccinated person then I have no qualms with it.
Doesn't surprise me that you're pro segregation.

I go straight to the heart of corporate welfare, which is the size of the state and its ability to pick winners and losers, and yet I am suddenly in favour of it?

Don't try to approach progressives with any sense of the notion that racism is actually an objectively bad thing for humans. They don't care.

In the distant future when only Coloured Chinese people exist they'll argue about privilege based on the percentages of your ancestry.
