    Houston Restaurant Forced to Shut Down Social Media Accounts After Posting Picture With AG Session

    Houston Restaurant Forced to Shut Down Social Media Accounts After Posting Picture With AG Session

    The media is at least partially to blame for recreating and then stoking the virtual mob

    One of Houston’s most loved Tex-Mex restaurants, El Tiempo, (they have great margaritas, btw) was harassed into shutting down all of their social media accounts Saturday afternoon after sharing a picture of the restaurant’s owner, Roland Laurenzo and Attorney General Jeff Sessions.

    Sessions was in town to discuss immigration issues.

    From the Houston Chronicle:

    El Tiempo did not immediately respond to a request for comment, but the chain’s Facebook, Instagram and Twitter pages were down Saturday afternoon.

    On Friday, owner Roland Laurenzo posted a photo with a caption saying it was an “honor” to serve Sessions, who was in town to discuss immigration enforcement with law enforcement officers. The post was quickly condemned by customers, some of whom called for a boycott.

    Laurenzo soon after responded, writing that the photo “does not represent us supporting (Sessions’) positions.”

    “El Tiempo does not in anyway support the practice of separating children from parents or any other practices of the government relative to immigration,” Laurenzo wrote, according to CultureMap. “The posting of a photograph of the Attorney General at one of our restaurants does not represent us supporting his positions. The secret service contacted us that a government official was coming to dinner at our establishment and his identity was not know until he walked through the door.”

    “The man came to dinner and he was served without us even thinking about the political situations. We were preoccupied with the secret service and catering to their wants and needs. The only thing on our minds was serving great food and giving great customer service. It was posted without review or approval by ownership and this has lead to everyone jumping to conclusions that somehow we are involved in this political matter. We don’t approve of anyone separating parents and children.”

    Because it needs repeating (apparently), there is more to life than politics. It’s also possible to stand next to someone who has accomplished much in life while also disagreeing with some of the things this person thinks without losing your damn mind. This feat is known as “maturity.”

    What an incredible waste of life, beauty, and enjoyment to view every human interaction through the scope of politics.

    Remember all those hundreds of millions of dollars funneled into Leftist organizations during the Obama years and the thousands of groups funded to be radical political cells? This is bearing fruit since Trump (or any opponent) gains position. It is now becoming a well oiled machine.

    The Leftist-twit perpetual outrage mob would have reacted with approval, if only the restaurant’s owner had photographed himself posing with some local MS-13 gangmembers, now that Leftist media propagandists are hard at work, attempting to provide Americans with a rose-tinted whitewashing of that vicious gang’s reputation.

    This is unfortunate. It draws sympathy to Sessionszzz, a man who has done a great deal to undermine the rule of law in this country.

    It’s one of my favorite restaurants. Sorry to see that Lorenzo caved to the mob.

    “This feat is known as “maturity.””

    That’s just a tool of the patriarchy!!!11!1!!!!
