During a recent episode of The Tony Kornheiser Show, the crew was discussing the neighborhood that (now) Vice President Mike Pence had moved into for the transition between the election and inauguration on January 20, 2017. Apparently, the neighborhood was not exactly happy about the views of their new temporary neighbors.
In their own form of protest, the residents “decorated” the neighborhood with rainbow flags, showing their solidarity with the LBGT community.
As they discussed this story, they stated that they believe it is acceptable if people protest him at his work, but his house and home should be “off limits”. They went on to say that he (and his family) deserve the right to peace at their home.
And I have to say, I could not disagree more.
When someone makes part of their “work” to disenfranchise an entire community solely based on their sexual orientation, and then hide their own bigotry behind “religious freedom”, I believe they should be subject to protest wherever they are. As long as it’s not against the law, any protest should be perfectly acceptable.
Why should he have peace when he actively tries to take it away from others?
