White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders acknowledges in a tweet that she was asked to leave a Virginia restaurant Friday night.
Sanders says she was told by the owner of The Red Hen in Lexington, Virginia, that she had to "leave because I work for @President and I politely left."

Sanders says the event says far more about the owner of the restaurant than it does about her.

She says, "I always do my best to treat people, including those I disagree with, respectfully and will continue to do so."

Sanders' treatment at the restaurant has created a social media commotion with people on both sides weighing in to provide their critique of the incident.

Why not put up a fuss and resist arrest? Why not shame the company into making their managers have sensitivity training? Why doesn't the ACLU have a problem with this? In America it's perfectly fine to discriminate against people for holding conservative beliefs or working for a Republican president but not ok to ask someone to leave if he is black or gay.

But, just to be clear you support the businessman's freedom to do so, no?

But it is ok to not bake someone a cake right?

I would Doc in country with equal treatment under the law. But we don't have that now.

I respect Sarah Sanders for politely leaving. We know what kind of people would put up a fuss, get the police involved, burn down the city in response to bigoted actions as this etc. I've become quite reactionary to the way the pendulum has been swinging. I feel like if you don't stand up for your rights you soon won't have any. This is probably what has led me to views that many would call racist. But in a way I kind of respect the way Martin Luther King was willing to fight and sacrfice quite a bit over rather minor things like being asked to leave a store or shop elsewhere. He understood that if you don't fight for your rights you soon won't have any. I wish white people would learn this as well. General Jackson certainly understood it. He was willing to die for it.

I would leave as well. I usually try to avoid food tainted with bodily fluids.

Did the gay couple politely go elsewhere?

I cannot stand this woman. I think she is a liar who has sold her soul. But if she were to sue this restaurant I'd support her.

Do you really think many who are refused didn't go politely somewhere else? Might not be wise to eat that cake, but those who refuse are doing it to protect everyone's rights.

I agree it was wrong to refuse her because of her political opinions.

I just want the board to note what Themis just insinuated with regards to a woman.

And hatred has made you come to this thread to be an ass and lie about me. I noticed you do this a lot with others. I suspect you know full well I am insinuated her food might be contaminated with things like spit because they hated her. You are a dishonest ass and that's only a true observation. :wink:

Themis,

I'll give you a one-off with the name calling since the mod's apparently are cool with rule breaking. Next one though you get the ____ knuckle treatment.

That's how I feel about it too.

The restaurant owner was clearly in the wrong. Customers should not be discriminated against because of their employers from the HokieBird Septic Tank Service to Trump Enterprises (even though both are aromatic).

Neither the federal or Virginia civil rights statutes protect discrimination based on political affiliation. Personally, if I lived in the area, I would send them a polite letter letting them know that this liberal could not, in good conscience, be a customer of their restaurant. I don’t want to live in a world where I have to show party registration to get a damn burger.

That wasn't name calling. That was making an accurate observation. :wink: You are clearly lying to attack me, as I suspect you have been doing on the other thread.

I think a certain Colorado baker should send Huckabee Sanders a cake in recompense for this ungracious Red Hen behavior. The baker could ice the cake to read, "You're not gay so you can have this cake and eat it too".

your point being that hypocrisy on the right is worth condemnation and mockery - whereas hypocrisy on the left is only worth changing the subject to hypocrisy on the right.
