Charge: Rent Raised Sixfold On Homeless Shelter Because Proprietor Is a Black Republican

The party of compassion strikes again:

Recently, I was invited to address a local Republican Women's Club; my landlord read an article in the local paper reporting on the event. Soon after, I received a notice raising the Dome Village rent from $2,500 a month to $18,330. Shocked, I inquired as to the seriousness of the change and the property owner blurted out that the cause of our "eviction" was "because you are Republican." He said that as a Democrat, he was tired of helping me and the Dome Village. In other words, let the homeless be damned.

And people think the Democrats are the party of compassion and tolerance. Private property should be protected, of course, and I have no intention of causing any trouble for this property owner as we part ways. Whatever he does with his valuable land -- it is only a few blocks from the Staples Center -- is no concern of mine, and I will not go to court.

Still, I cannot help but be saddened by the whole business. When I founded the Dome Village 12 years ago, we had an understanding that he could ask for his property back at any time for any reason, and I would say "absolutely" without hesitation. Still, his reason was prejudice against Republicans.

I love that the guy isn't even entertaining the idea of going to court. (I don't think he'd have much of a case, but there's always that threat.)

Memo to liberals: No matter how right and righteous you believe yourselves to be, and no matter how wrongheaded you think Republicans are, it does not give you the right to act like total f'n' pricks.

These are the same people who endlessly weep about the Hollywood Blacklist, forever. But it seems as soon as they get a little bit of power, and the ability to likewise blacklist those whose politics they don't like, they jump at the chance.

Eh. "Do as I say, not as I do." The really cool thing about being a hyperpartisan leftist is that you have such wonderful thoughts it pretty much cancels out any bad acts you commit.

I suppose that's one of the main selling points at recruitment centers.
