A call to Turner Gas LP in Skowhegan, Maine, will direct you to the following message:
“Thank you for calling Turner LP gas. If you voted for Donald Trump for president I will no longer be delivering your gas — please find someone else.”
Are the civil rights groups who go APE CRAP about bakeries and photographers not wanting to participate in gay weddings going to sue this man out of business like they have so many times before? No, probably not.
Here’s the thing. According to an article on Polizette:
Mr. Turner lives in a county that overwhelmingly supported Trump. Trump won Somerset County, Maine — in which Skowhegan is located — 57.73 percent to Hillary Clinton’s 35 percent.
In Skowhegan specifically, where Clinton performed better than Somerset county at large, Trump still received over 50 percent of the vote and had a ten point lead on Clinton, according to rough figures published on Skowhegan’s town website. Mr. Turner is apparently so distraught over Trump’s win he is willing alienate more than half of his community and possibly sacrifice his livelihood.
But there is something slightly more disquieting to Mr. Turner’s anti-Trump message. Maine is of course a very, very cold place during the winter, and many Mainers, especially the state’s senior citizens, often rely on fuel deliveries to survive Maine’s harsh winter months.
So what it comes down to is that while the bakeries that have been forced out of business for not wanting to cater gay weddings get everyone’s attention, this butwad who could actually be putting people’s lives in danger will probably be mostly ignored by the media.
Why? Because Conservatives don’t matter. Let them freeze to death. They totally deserve it because they’re racist, homophobic, misogynistic, xenophobic, transphobic, evil Nazis. Or something.
