Political beliefs aren’t protected under the fair housing act so liberals are shunning Trump supporting apartment hunters. Can anyone remember when politics has ever been this ugly? It’s yet another sign that discussion with liberals just doesn’t happen. It’s either their way or no way…
In case you missed it…Senator Marco Rubio gave a great speech about political tolerance in the Senate that rings true here. How can we solve anything if we can’t debate about it? What can we accomplish if half of the nation hates the other half?
“Open-minded” liberals in Washington, D.C., are barring Trump supporters from applying to rent apartments online.
Since the presidential election numerous listings have appeared on Craigslist, Reddit, and other sites written by woke vegetarian liberals, who are open to renters of any gender identity, but write-off anyone with opposing political beliefs.
“Alcohol, pets and meat products are not allowed in the house,” said one liberal woman seeking a roommate near Georgetown, quoted in the New York Times. “Neither are Trump supporters.”
“Roommates Wanted. Trump Supporters Need Not Apply,” the Times reports, arguing that anti-Trump rental policies are legal despite political affiliation being a protected trait under D.C. law.
The Times says anti-Trump housing listings are a “small act of defiance in an area that heavily favored Hillary Clinton.” Only 4 percent of D.C. voters cast their ballots for Donald Trump.
Liberals say they are open to any “gender identity” or “non-identity”—with the exception of identifying as conservative.
“[T]wo women in their 20s were searching for a roommate to take over a lavender-colored room in their Columbia Heights apartment for $550,” the Times reported. “The women detailed their love of happy hours, a ‘good Netflix sesh,’ pho and tacos.”
“We’re open to any age/gender identity/non-identity,” the liberal women said. “So long as you didn’t vote for Trump.”
Another self-described “open-minded” liberal couple said they could not accept a Trump supporter to fill an open room in their house.
