The smugness imbued in everyone who moves to New York is so terrible and yet oh so justified.
You can’t have a test for what the owners’ personal views are before you decide to give a permit to do something in the city. You really don’t want to ask political beliefs or religious beliefs before you issue a permit, that’s just not government’s job.
Freedom of speech—everybody’s in favor of it as long as it’s what they want to hear. Well the only way that you have your freedom of speech is if you give other people freedom of speech…This is just a bad idea and it’s not going to happen in New York City.
