Cake has become a political football in America

What is it with cakes in America? In four cases now they have been used for political purposes. In the first case, Christian owners of a bakery refused to make a cake for their regular lesbian customers because it was for a gay wedding. In the next case, Steven Crowder who was upset that the Media were pushing the narrative that only Christians were discriminating against Gays, proved that none of the Muslim-owned bakeries in Dearborn would agree to bake a gay wedding cake either.

Now Walmart has refused to make a cake for a Police Officer’s retirement party saying that the blue line was racist even though last year they happily baked an ISIS flag cake for a customer after first refusing his request for a Confederate flag.

Chuck Netzhammer initially requested a cake decorated with a Confederate battle flag and the words “heritage not hate”, but the store refused.

Mr Netzhammer then placed an order for a cake topped with the banner of the militant group.

The customer’s first order – a Confederate battle flag cake – was rejected

Where will it all end? These conflicts over cake are another canary in the mine alerting us to the threat to our personal freedoms in today’s society. Either a business is legally allowed to refuse customer requests on any basis at all or they are not. The total lack of legal consistency in these cases is very concerning. There is one law for some and another for others. You should not be able to have it both ways. Walmart has not been punished and neither have the Dearborn Muslim bakeries yet the Christian bakery was hounded by media and fined $135,000.
