Liberals are always tolerant of other cultures and viewpoints, except when those viewpoints diverge from their own. Or course, we have no indication so far that Melania Trump has a viewpoint different from liberals, but liberals are already making that assumption. One liberal clothing designer of whom I have never heard is already taking that position:
This is a bold stance for Theallet, considering the designer has dressed First Lady Michelle Obama in the past, but in her open letter posted to her Twitter account today she made no bones about the fact that she will not be fashion to the incoming FLOTUS. In the letter, the designer writes, “As an independent fashion brand, we consider our voice an expression of our artistic and philosophical ideas. The Sophie Theallet brand stands against all discrimination and prejudice. Our runway shows, ad campaigns, and celebrity dressing have always been a celebration of diversity and a reflection of the world we live in.”As Red State points out, the designer isn't taking a stand against intolerance, discrimination and prejudice. She simply is choosing who she will discriminate against. Shame bakers can't make the same choice base on religious beliefs.
“I am well aware it is not wise to get involved in politics,” Theallet writes, “That said, as a family-owned company, our bottom line is not just about money. We value our artistic freedom and always humbly seek to contribute to a more humane, conscious and ethical way to create in this world.”
Of course, since all designers are in business to make money, not all designers are morons willing to alienate roughly half of their potential customers. I guess some designers produce clothing that more actual people actually buy and wear, and so they exhibit more common sense:
Five days after Sophie Theallet became the first U.S.-based designer to publicly speak out against dressing incoming First Lady Melania Trump, Tommy Hilfiger came out in favor of a decidedly opposing stance. When asked about Theallet's comments at Monday evening's Angel Ball in New York City, Hilfiger told WWD: "I think Melania is a very beautiful woman and I think any designer should be proud to dress her."I'm sure Sophie Theallet is every bit as tolerant as every other exploding-head screaming libtard, meaning tolerant of people who agree with her. I hope Tommy Hilfiger and other much wiser designers make a fucking fortune dressing Melania. I also hope Ms. Theallet, of whom I have never heard before, goes flat fucking busted-ass broke.
