I’m not a big Donald Trump fan.
No. Really . Not. A. Fan.
But I’m reminded of Churchill’s statement about Stalin; he didn’t care for him, but if Satan were Hitler’s enemy, Churchill would at least do lunch with him.
And so the Saint Paul City Council might be responsible for me doing lunch with The Donald, after they put their own special carve-out in the First Amendment:
The St. Paul City Council will vote Wednesday on a resolution that condemns presidential candidate Donald Trump’s anti-Muslim rhetoric and declares Trump unwelcome within the city limits….[Councilman Dai Thao] acknowledged on Thursday he had not yet touched base with fellow council members on the resolution. “We think it will pass,” he said. “St. Paul has always been welcoming to immigrants.”
But not, apparently, dissent in any form.
Dear Mr. Trump: While I won’t be voting for you at caucuses, I beg of you; please, please, please come to Saint Paul (aka “Chicago on the Mississippi”). Call these morons on their bluff.
It’d be the show of the century.
It’s another big win for urban liberal privilege.
