I agree, pence could've handled that much better. There were plenty of escapes from the fallacies presented by the performers that would've made a solid public statement after the performance. If the performers weren't the snowflakes they were, they would've performed the show and saved the politics for a sane discussion afterward, instead of weaving passive aggression and leers throughout the performance.
Kelloggs could've said "We like people who like kellogg's cornflakes" instead of taking sides, and, iirc, it was a starbucks employee who bitched about writing 'trump' on a cup which set that incident off. Companies really shouldn't be taking sides in identity politics. It just shrinks their maximum potential markets.
None of this compares to the decades of cry-bullying by left wing demagogues, esp on university campuses. These kids aren't learning this behavior in vacuums, and these days, it starts in grade school. These PC wankers are one of the big reasons trump won despite his obvious flaws. Trump supporters have a lot of catching up to do in order to reach equity with this legacy.
Your conclusion is illogical.
