This is the schadenfreude election. Truly.
Because it's not like I'm whooping and hollering about Donald Trump as president. I'm not. I going into this thinking that everything we want these next four years will have to be fought for. But I'll admit I'm thrilled that the Clinton corruption machine is broken, kaput. Gone. I get giddy watching those videos of Rachel Maddow just absolutely losing it on election night. I do. It's schadenfreude, I know. I'm delighting in their misery. A little bit. I know it's not good. Unhealthy. Bad even. But I'm being honest.
If you're with me, you might get a kick out of this. The bullying anti-Christian asshat who fined two Christian bakers out of existence for their refusal to take part in a same-sex marriage has been rejected by voters. IN OREGON!!!!!!!!
The Conservative Tribune reports:
In 2013, Oregon Democrat Brad Avakian, as commissioner of the Oregon Bureau of Labor and Industries, put a Christian bakery out of business because its owners stood up for their religious convictions. Fast forward to 2016 and Avakian, not unlike many of his fellow Democrats, got served a big slice of sweet justice.Come on. That doesn't send a tingle up your leg? Even a little?
Sweetcakes by Melissa, owned by Melissa and Aaron Klein, was forced out of business by Avakian and the BOLI in 2013. Klein told Independent Journal Review that they were fined $135,000 and the state garnished their bank accounts to cover it. When all was said and done, Klein said that the state took $144,000 from them.
Avakian put these Christian bakers out of business, but in 2016, the people of Oregon ended his run for Oregon secretary of state in favor of Republican Dennis Richardson, which is the first time in 14 years the solidly blue state elected a Republican for state office.
It's kinda' like this.
