Yup so if anyone who is a member of a group you don’t like comes into a restaurant and you don’t want to serve them I guess it’s OK . I mean if you don’t agree with their politics. The incivility continues to worsen.

A restaurant refused to serve Sarah Sanders and her family

Sarah Sanders had a hard time getting dinner in the D.C. area on Friday. She and her family were asked to leave the Red Hen restaurant in Lexington, Va.

Jaike Foley-Schultz, who says he is a waiter at the Red Hen, shared a post on Facebook that said his boss kicked out the press secretary and her party.

The post went viral when the director of Clean Virginia, a left-leaning energy nonprofit, shared the post on Twitter, along with a handwritten note, purportedly from the restaurant, with the note: “86 — Sara Huckabee Sanders.”

The term “86” is restaurant shorthand for cutting people off, asking them to leave, or throwing them out.

Sanders confirmed that she was asked to leave in a tweet this morning.

“Last night I was told by the owner of Red Hen in Lexington, VA to leave because I work for [President Trump] and I politely left,” Sanders tweeted.

She also got in a dig, noting that being asked to leave said more about the owner than her.

As has become common when a business stirs up controversy, the restaurant’s Yelp and Facebook pages have been flooded by reviewers weighing in on Sanders being given the boot.

On Yelp, one person from Texas wrote, “Decides who can and who cannot dine based on their employment or political affiliations. What a despicable business model! Poor decision by owners and management.”

Another, from California wrote, “I was dining at the Red Hen and witnessed them rudely refuse service to Sarah Huckabee Sanders. I was disgusted and appalled by the incident. I will never eat at this establishment again.”

Facebook was not much different.

There were also some positive comments, with one Yelper writing: “Best restaurant in the world. Owner has her head screwed on straight. I only wish I lived closer so I could eat here every night. Thank you for being brave, I’m sure you’re going to be threatened by all sorts of troglodytes. Stand tall, there are more of us than there are of them.”

Another seemed to draw a parallel to the Colorado baker who won his case in the Supreme Court after refusing to bake a cake for a gay couple, writing: “Glad you stood up for your moral convictions. This used to be against the law, but we all know who changed that and what’s good for the goose… well, you know the rest.”

In a similar incident, Homeland Security chief Kirstjen Nielsen was heckled by activists as she dined at a Mexican restaurant on Tuesday. The protesters chanted “shame!” repeatedly at the woman who has become the frontline defender of the Trump administration’s widely condemned practice of separating migrant children from their parents.

“How can you enjoy a Mexican dinner as you’re deporting, imprisoning tens of thousands of people who come here seeking asylum in the United States?” one of the activists cried out in a 10-minute video the group posted on social media.

Nielsen left the dinner early.
Children as young as 9 months are being taken from their parents and shipped thousands of miles away and we're supposed to be upset because Sarah Sanders couldn't get a double beef burrito tonight? :nesaitpas:

I'll say here what I said about the gay-cake refusal: when you go into a public business, you forfeit a lot of freedom to pick and choose your customers. The baker should have been required to serve the couple, within reason, and so should this restaurateur serve Sanders and her party, also within reason.

So, you can only refuse based on religious beliefs? If they don't want to make money that is up to them. And things like this can hurt the business.
By all means let’s keep expanding it. Maybe we can have people wear political symbols so it’s easier to identify them .
Didn't they do that wearing symbols bit in Nazi Germany during Hitler's reign of love and acceptance.............Perhaps those restaurants could hand out acceptance badges to those that were clean enough to dine in their new Gestapo Land.
Perhaps bakeries can hand out arm bands with rainbows on them to the ones they refuse to make cakes for.

Okay. ONE restaurant asked Sanders and her party to leave. And did so after conferring with her staff. So what's the big deal?

Sadly, this is what happens when political discourse reaches the ugly place where people with differing views are not even considered to be Americans.

The non-thinking political stooges, and the pols for whom they stooge, are damaging our way of life.

If you talk to the people who escaped Nazi Germany they often say their biggest regret was not being nicer to government officials defending unspeakable crimes who were eating dinner.

I've had the honor and privilege to know a few Jews who survived Nazi Germany. One in a prison camp, another who barely made it out. This is not where you want to go with this point. I understand the point and your analogy fails.
