This was brought to my attention the other day, and holy shit, my brain have never hurt so much over such a brief conversation:
Well, that seems reasonable. Why are we even wasting our time with costly and time-consuming credit checks, background checks, reference calls, and income verification? I guess we should just start looking at voter registration instead? Surely that tells you everything you need to know about a prospective tenant. Because a left-leaning applicant would NEVER stiff you out of months of rent and trash your place, right Andrew? You look like you voted for Pedro, you liberal bootleg Napoleon Dynamite.
This is why this country is going to shit, if you ask me. It’s no secret that I am not a fan of President Trump, it would be disingenuous of me to pretend otherwise. That being said, I am a fan of my tenants paying their rent on time and behaving like human beings, and as a person who prefers logic over melodramatic knee-jerk reactions, I know an interested renter’s political affiliation has exactly zero bearing on that. I am also a fan of true equal opportunity that is solely merit-based. Denying basic needs to other people based on personal belief is Fascism, Andrew. Nobody wants a limp-wristed, tree hugging Mussolini for a landlord. Come on, now.
Imagine if the roles were reversed and Andrew has said, “You voted for Obama”. He’s be swinging from the proverbial tree all over social media right now. Guess what, you cuck? This is entirely unacceptable. Sorry your parents didn’t raise you better.
Naturally, the Facebook legal experts just HAD to chime in with their unsolicited advice.
But um, no it’s not – as insane as that is. Housing discrimination laws don’t say anything about political beliefs. The federal Fair Housing Act forbids discrimination based on race, color, national origin, religion, sex, and disability. It’s also illegal to discriminate against renters based on whether they’re married or have children or receive tax-payer funded rental assistance.
Only one state, California, bans discrimination based on political beliefs as part of a broader ban on “arbitrary discrimination.” So the same state where a crazy large amount of items suddenly give you cancer,
And is home to some of the most insufferable creatures on the planet,
is also the only state that explicitly bans rejected tenants based on any characteristic that isn’t directly related to their ability to be a good tenant. That’s cool.
The District of Columbia also explicitly bans discrimination based on political affiliation, as do some other cities. But most fair-housing laws have exemptions for landlords who live in the building they’re renting out, so there’s always a way for snot-nosed, white knight little pukes like Andrew Wood to find there way onto the top of a gigantic power trip.
And trust me, Back-alley Handy-Andy just happens to be EXACTLY what you’d expect.
Sweet pube-fro, bruh. Be more of an unfuckable nerd beta male. You can’t. You’re so tolerant, Andrew. I bet you’re a real panty-dropper at the pro-Antifa, anti-Trump, LGTB, indigenous peoples-sensitive drum circles you undoubtedly attend no less than twice a year.
Just kidding. Obviously you’re not into chicks who wear panties, or shave. Smash the patriarchy!
For the record, I would hate this chud no matter which side of the fence he decided to sit on, because denying someone the opportunity to procure a basic need such as housing over something as arbitrary as who he supports politically is the purest form of scumfuckerey. Frankly, if you can afford to reject an interested tenant based solely on his (or her) opinions varying from yours, you are the exact type of bigoted elitist scum you claim to “resist”. Way to go, you dumb-shit, hate mongering cuck. The only thing more blatant than your out-of-touch, raging privilege is your hypocrisy. I hope you end up with a minority, non-binary gendered, welfare collecting crack cocaine addict for a tenant who trashes your place and drags out an eviction for six to nine months, because I bet that’s what you want, and you deserve it!
