OK, technically, since the video just came out, we’re still waiting to see how equal these particular bakeries are.
Culture shark Steven Crowder took his combat camera into a number of bakeries in — oh, let’s just spit it out: Dearborn, Michigan. And you know what kind of bakeries they have so many of there. That’s right: he went into Muslim-owned bakeries, representing himself as a gay man seeking a wedding cake for a same-sex ceremony.
A number of the bakeries turned him down. (We see two of the proprietors — showing absolutely no sense of humor — suggest that he go commission his cake at a nearby Kroger. How lame is that?)
Crowder says other Muslim-owned bakeries he visited were willing to make the cake for him. It was only some of the bakers who declined to provide that service.
But he’s got several bakeries that did decline on camera.
Presumably, Crowder won’t be suing them, since he has already clarified that he wasn’t actually seeking a same-sex wedding cake. In that regard, we won’t be able to have a full-scale test of equality between bakeries. We’ll have to wait for a same-sex couple to go into a Muslim-owned bakery and ask for a cake on their own behalf, at least purporting to have a legitimate interest. For some reason, that doesn’t seem to happen. Oddly, with all the Muslim-owned bakeries in the U.S., it only seems to happen to Christian-owned bakeries.
At any rate, now we wait to see if the bakeries in the video at least get hate-tweets and death threats, and have their Facebook pages porn-jacked. Their hateful bigotry has been exposed, after all. Surely they must now go in fear of harassment and vituperation.
Any bets on that from LU Nation?
