To: Bruce Springsteen
From: Mitch Berg, Longtime Fan
As everyone knows, I’m a longtime fan – at least in part because you are, or at least were during your heyday, the writer of some of the most evocative music there is for conservatives.
Now comes news that you’ve cancelled your concerts in North Carolina, because of (the liberal media’s distorted version of) a rest-room bill.
Some, especially on my side of the political fence, will no doubt criticize you for this stance.
I, however, come to praise you for it. Because, given that there are no doubt contractual obligations involved with your North Carolina appearances between your promoters, your production company, the venue and the countless vendors involved, not to mention tens of thousands of tickets for the event, you would seem to be risking a lot…
…to stand up for a businessperson’s right to not serve people they morally disagree with.
That is all.
