Next up will be an app that finds places where KKK members can wear their hoods in peace.

Everywhere they look, Donald Trump’s supporters feel like they’re under attack.
White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders was asked to leave a restaurant; Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen was chased out of another. Right-wing media outlets are filled with stories of liberals pulling off “Make America Great Again” hats.
Trump supporters have even come up with a term for this phenomenon that has them feeling under siege: “MAGAphobia.”
Now, in a move reminiscent of the “Green Book” guide that listed safe establishments for African-American motorists in the South, hyper-vigilant Trump supporters are trying to build their own guide to MAGA-friendly businesses.
Trump supporters who want to grab dinner but are terrified of getting punched by an antifascist “ antifa” activist can pull up the app, “63red Safe,” and find a list of Trump-friendly businesses—or at least ones that don’t discriminate against conservatives.
“I’m trying to position it as an everyday ‘where can I go eat safely’ app,” Scott Wallace, the app’s founder, told The Daily Beast.
63red Safe works like a conservative Yelp. Instead of reviewing the lighting and ambiance, though, the site’s users rate restaurants and other businesses on a series of four questions, including whether the restaurant’s owners make political social media posts and whether they allow customers to carry weapons.
“Does this business serve persons of every political belief?” the app’s questions read. “Will this business protect its customers if they are attacked for political reasons?”
You know I cannot think of a single time that I worried that my political beliefs would make it hard to find someplace to eat.
And don’t forget I am a liberal in deep red Alaska.
It is possible by the way to engage in polite conversation in public places without being a complete douchebag who pisses off others seated around you.
I know, I’ve done it.
But then again I am not a conservative cry baby with a persecution complex who has to take his red comfort cap with him everywhere he goes.
