Conservative Woman Denied Housing in D.C...Due to Political Views

Who said that conservatives aren't discriminated against for their political beliefs? 

Pardes Seleh, a conservative who has worked at Fox News and is now a graduate student, shared an email today she received explaining why she was denied approval to rent an apartment in Washington, D.C.

In an email, the owner/tenet writes to Seleh stating, "after pursuing your various journalistic and social media posts, it's pretty clear your political views are diametrically opposed to ours (and we hate Fox)." 

Seleh posted that email to Twitter this morning: 

An hour later Seleh, in a video posted to Twitter, explained that her political views aren't far right-wing or that "crazy." Seleh then expressed the fact that she didn't want to be seen as a victim, but rather show what occurred when searching for housing in a conservative.

She went on to explain that people who are claiming to be "pro-love" don't show tolerance to varying political opinions. 

Seleh told Townhall that she was "looking to downsize to an apartment with roommates in order to save money on rent, but it seems a lot of the people who live in my area wouldn’t want a roommate with my work background or political views."

"It’s not the end of the world and I‘m not a victim, have great friends in the area, but this stuff could get annoying sometimes," Seleh added. 

Reactions from Twitter were swift, with many expressing outrage. The best response to the tweet was a picture of the "Fair Housing Laws" in D.C. while also pushing back against liberal "tolerance."

Seleh responded to "haters" who trolled her stating that she is "treated like a nazi for no reason."
