How Leftist Targeting Calculus Works (UPDATED)

Or geometry or algebra or whatever. From last year.

In Chicago, Mayor Rahm Emanuel has told Chick-fil-A that the fast-food company is not welcome in his town because "Chick-fil-A’s values are not Chicago values." In other words, because Chick-fil-A ownership believes in traditional marriage, it shouldn't bother opening up shop in Chicago.

But Emanuel is welcoming Louis Farrakhan, who is against same-sex marriage and who blasted President Obama two months ago for endorsing the practice.

Of course.

Rahm Emanuel--like his Leftist siblings-in-arms at A&E--gets told who to denounce and who not to. (I would guess that, after a while, one would get a feel for whom to target.) Chik-fil-A? Duck Dynasty Stars? Fair game, no pun intended. 

Nation of Islam? Fugedaboutit, especially if the potential denouncer is the mayor of Chicago; he knows who to slime and who not to. But even if we weren’t talking about Rahm Emanuel, the target is a double no-no for the Left: black and Muslim. The combination of the two politically protected groupings beats out the single group—homosexuals. In addition, all Muslim public figures are off limits. Therefore, Emanuel will continue to ignore Louis Farrakhan.

This isn’t difficult.

Reminder: The Nation of Islam joined forces with the Scientology organization back in 2009.
