Ever seen a sign like this in a hotel bar?


Here’s a sign I saw in a hotel bar recently.

Yes, this is a private business, albeit a huge hotel chain, but I doubt they would have allowed such a sign ten or even five years ago.

Today, more businesses than ever care less about serving customers than about serving the government and political correctness.

Leftists would never be caught dead defending the rights of a private business, but today, they’re the first to speak up for them so long as they’re doing the bidding of the government.

Yet another modern irony…if they’re doing the bidding of the government how private are they?

A young woman at the reservation desk defended the sign and the policy saying that some people get drunk and rowdy at the bar.

So, rather singling out and dealing with those out of control patrons,  it’s necessary to make blanket rules that apply to everyone.  So much for personal responsibility.

The implication is that no one can discuss controversial subjects without becoming unruly. Acceptance of such dictates will create exactly that reality because people will have forgotten how.

The hotel chain is acting as a proxy for the current government once again since collectivist conditioning is exactly what they want.

Before you know it, there will be rules for speech, where to stand, which way to walk, and whether you can enter a business without the right papers…  Wait a minute…

We are watching a mass cultural psychosis where people are cheering the muzzling (jabbing and persecuting) of their fellow citizens.

The bell tolls for them as well. They just don’t know it yet.

  1. Lol what, this is a bit hysterical. You’re attacking a private business for policies they want to enforce on their private property and calling them a proxy for the government? You’re shittin me. This is like saying you can’t kick your neighbor off your property when they start being a dick, otherwise you’re impeding on their freedom of speech… world don’t work that way, don’t know where you got this idea.

  2. I’m glad you wrote this as it tells me that perhaps I wasn’t explicit enough. Just because a business can make demands on the expression of others (that hasn’t been adjudicated in court but it doesn’t matter) doesn’t mean they should.

    It’s perfectly reasonable to criticize a policy you wouldn’t use the government to prevent. My point is that this huge hotel chain would never have done this even five years ago because it wouldn’t think to insult the majority of customers that way. Now, insulting customers and telling them what they can and can’t talk about is socially acceptable.

    There’s more, but I’ll leave it there.

  3. Just so we’re clear I am attacking the mentality of censorship rather than the letter of the law. That you think one should not be allowed to attack private businesses for that mentality could make one wonder if you haven’t bought into the same mentality.
