What do you mean? Sin taxes are an old concept. What do think tobacco taxes are? They're a tax on a socially unacceptable behavior that we're told are designed to dissuade people from engaging in that behavior. Some places have put higher gas taxes up with the idea to curb carbon emissions for the same reason, and some places have sugary drink taxes too.

We do know exactly how it goes. The OP is extremely accurate.

Democrat gets elected a whole class of deplorables will be taxed with special treatment to those they enjoy aiding. LGBTQ, antifa, BLM, illegal aliens, muslims, hollyweird, and silicon valley and the media to control.

These are people hate the way things are and espacially hate tradition.
