Bake me a fucking cake, retards.
A restaurant in Virginia booted the White House press secretary from the premises. The co-owner did so due to her standards, and much coercion from her staff.
This, in my opinion, is completely up to the discretion of the restaurant. No restaurant, or any business, should be forced to serve those they don’t want in their establishment. In a perfect world, the incident would be over, and the restaurant could continue feeding its clients. Unfortunately, that won’t happen.
So. You should be just fine with restaurants refusing service to blacks, Hispanics, GLBTVRYUILLXQ39SPACEMODULATORs or whomever else they may arbritrarily choose, right?
Ahh, but of course not. One can only conclude that the New Standard is that it’s now fine to refuse service based on ideological and/or political affiliation, then. Our good bud Aesop ain’t on board with all that:
Sorry, but HELL NO.
“In a perfect world”, the owner and her halfwit staff realize that absent any actions of personal misbehavior on the premises whilst dining, they treat Sarah Sanders exactly like every other customer who enters their public establishment. Because they know if they fail to adhere to that minimum standard of civility (from whose meaning-rich root, civitas, springs also the word “civilization”), the Banshees Of Comeuppance will descend on their establishment, and drive their establishment out of business, for cause, and remove their jackassical DNA from the economic gene pool, exactly the “invisible hand” predicted in 1776 by Adam Smith, the explicatory father of capitalism and its functioning.
So, for the exact same reason we have public health codes, if you’re in business to serve food to customers, you serve food to customers. Period. Paragraph. End of effing book.
This was not the Democrat Harpy Pub. It was not the Politically Correct Lounge.
Well, I dunno. Seems like, as a practical matter at least, maybe it WAS.
Stand by for a bunch of preening nonsense from the Hapless Right about how shitlibs, thanks to the self-evident hypocrisy now fully exposed by their “right to refuse service” Brand New Principle, “can no longer” force Christian bakers or anyone else to act in ways contrary to their own beliefs. Au contraire, chum; they most certainly can, and they most certainly will. You can rest entirely assured that, should a Republican-run eatery refuse service to Democrats based on party affiliation according to Brand New Principle, its proprietors and premises will be protested against, condemned, threatened, vandalized, boycotted, and harrassed because of their unacceptably unacceptable “bigotry.” Righties will sputter and fume about the obvious unfairness of this.
They will be ignored.
Lefty’s newfound reverence for the right to freedom of association is just like every other one of their supposed “principles”: conditional, compliance with which will be demanded only when it suits their purposes to do so. They themselves will continue to go right ahead and do whatever they damned well please, thanksverymuch, and just never you mind what they “can no longer” do. The only way fairness will ever enter the picture is if it’s forced on them—in other words, only if and when ignoring it does them immediate and tangible harm.
Which, in turn, brings us right back to the absolute and unavoidable necessity of inflicting serious pain on Leftards for their myriad abuses. Sniffing about all the things they “can no longer do” is horseshit on stilts, akin to complaining about liberal bias in Jurassic Media. Anybody expecting such complaints—even when backed up by ironclad examples—to inspire them to correct it, refrain from it in future, or otherwise inhibit them one iota, is headed for a lifetime of disappointment.
Business owners absolutely have the right to eject anyone from their premises. But in no world, perfect or otherwise, save for one best described by Dante in Inferno, do they have any right to remain ignorantly and blissfully free of consequences for their actions, whether wise or blisteringly stupid.
Bingo, and a most important point. Progtards have gotten away with their shit, consequence-free, for way too long. They’ve now gotten it thoroughly up their noses, as Wodehouse used to say. Appeals to some phantom sense of “fair play” or “integrity” are worse than a waste of time; those consequences Aesop mentions aren’t going to just miraculously be visited on Lefty all on their own. To use an analogy that might be just a bit too apt given current conditions: if you stack wood and kindling in the fireplace, just waving an unlit match over the pile ain’t going to get anybody any warmer.
To yield the desired result, the match must first be struck.
They will not stop. They will NEVER stop. They will have to BE stopped. As unpalatable as the prospect may be to the House Of Cuck, it remains the simple truth.
Update! Aesop also provides a link to this:
As I’ve said about gay people who can’t get a baker or photographer to work for their wedding, why would you want to do business with them?
Go somewhere else.
There’s really no reason to waste your money patronizing an establishment that doesn’t like or approve of you.
The real kick in the pants is as much as the Left hates Chick-fil-A, they will serve anyone. Gay, Democrat, Hillary voter — everyone receives service with a smile.
The Red Hen of Lexington? Not so much.
But the Red Hen also did a huge favor for Sarah Sanders.
Let’s be frank. If her snowflake staff hadn’t called the owner, I’m guessing the odds are someone would have spit in her food.
True, dat. Dianny—who’s going to wind up another belated blogroll entry sure enough—also provides a pic of the Red Hen owners, and they look just exactly as you would expect them to…right down to their choice of, umm, hats.
