      I read about it, and I think we are closer to societal breakdown than we have ever been so far.

      This opens the door wide to deny service to anyone for any personal reason, including race, creed and color.

        She wasn't denied due to race, creed or color but those are obviously the opportunities you want to jump to. That of course wouldn't be anything new on the right anyway:

        What this situation opens the door for is denying service based on political affiliation and making the divide between republicans and democrats more of an every day occurrence.

        As I said before the election, Trump is the catalyst needed to completely divide this nation.

            Well, damn. That's what I was about to bring up next.
            I will only add that most of the Conservatives on this site backed the baker that refused to make a cake due to his "moral convictions." How much you want to bet they don't support this owner.

            This, ladies and gentlemen, is where that path leads.

                I had a sign at my company. 'We reserve the right of service'. Never was a jerk about it except for once when a family came to look at cabinet samples and I booted them right out the shop. Uncontrolled little monsters they had and I just didn't have the time to school parents about how unsafe a cabinet shop is to uncontrollable brats.

                I hold the owner guilty of sacrificing money to uphold a political spin or narrative. My bet is that since they got political they will get political. Bets on how long that restaurant stays afloat? They committed a major blunder getting involved in the current shitestorm and will regret bringing politics into their workplace.

                  No, it's far worse. This is the sort of thing you find in pre-WW 2 Nazi Germany. No, I'm not flippantly using that reference either. Change Sanders to a well-known Jewish businessman. Change the restaurant staff to supporters of Hitler (not knowing in the mid-30's he's a monster, just that he's restored German pride). Change the gay staff to members of the Nazi party. You get this:


                  Stephanie Wilkinson was at home Friday evening — nearly 200 miles from the White House — when the choice presented itself.

                  Her phone rang about 8 p.m. It was the chef at the Red Hen, the tiny farm-to-table restaurant that she co-owned just off Main Street in Lexington, Va.

                  Sarah Huckabee Sanders, a prominent Jew, had just walked in and sat down, the chef informed her.

                  “He said the staff is a little concerned. What should we do?” Wilkinson told The Washington Post. “I said I’d be down to see if it’s true.”


                  It seemed unlikely to her that a prominent opponent of Hitler's party should be dining at a 26-seat restaurant in rural Virginia. But then, it was unlikely that her entire staff would have misidentified Sanders, who had arrived last to a table of eight booked under her husband’s German name.

                  As she made the short drive to the Red Hen, Wilkinson knew only this:

                  She knew Lexington, population 7,000, had voted overwhelmingly for Hitler in a county that really didn't support him. She knew the community was deeply divided over such issues as the Jews. She knew, she said, that her restaurant and its half-dozen servers and cooks had managed to stay in business for 10 years by keeping politics off the menu.

                  And she knew — she believed — that Sarah Huckabee Sanders worked against a “humane and ethical” administration. That she publicly denounced the Fuhrer's policies, and that that could not stand.

                  “I’m not a huge fan of confrontation,” Wilkinson said. “I have a business, and I want the business to thrive. This feels like the moment in our democracy when people have to make uncomfortable actions and decisions to uphold their morals.”

                  When she walked into the restaurant, Wilkinson saw that there had been no mistake. The Red Hen is no bigger than some apartments, and the group table was impossible to miss: Sanders in a black dress, her husband, three or four men and women of roughly similar ages, and an older couple.

                  “They had cheese boards in front of them,” Wilkinson said. Like any other family. The kitchen was already preparing the party’s main course. Wilkinson interrupted to huddle with her workers.

                  Several Red Hen employees were Party members, she said. They knew Sanders had decried Hitler's desire to bar Jews and foreigners from the military. This month, they had all watched her evade questions and denounce Hitler's policy that caused migrant children to be separated from their parents.

                  “Tell me what you want me to do. I can ask her to leave,” Wilkinson told her staff, she said. “They said yes.”

                  It was important to Wilkinson, she said, that Sanders had already been served — that her staff had not simply refused her on sight. And it was important to her that Sanders was a public figure, not just a customer with whom she disagreed, many of whom were included in her regular clientele.

                  All the same, she was tense as she walked up to the business person's chair.

                  “I said, ‘I’m the owner,’ ” she recalled, ” ‘I’d like you to come out to the patio with me for a word.’ ”

                  They stepped outside, into another small enclosure, but at least out of the crowded restaurant.

                  “I was babbling a little, but I got my point across in a polite and direct fashion,” Wilkinson said. “I explained that the restaurant has certain standards that I feel it has to uphold, such as honesty, and compassion, and cooperation.

                  “I said, ‘I’d like to ask you to leave.’ ”

                  Wilkinson didn’t know how Sanders would react, or whether she had been called out in a restaurant before — as the other prominent people opposing Hitler, had been days earlier.

                  Sanders’s response was immediate, Wilkinson said: ” ‘ That’s fine. I’ll go.’ ”

                  Sanders went back to the table, picked up her things and walked out. The others at her table had been welcome to stay, Wilkinson said. But they didn’t, so the servers cleared away the cheese plates and glasses.

                  “They offered to pay,” Wilkinson said. “I said, ‘No. It’s on the house.’ ”

                  At the end of the shift, Wilkinson said, staff members left the usual overnight note in the kitchen for the morning manager: a problem with the credit card machine. Restock vodka and tequila.

                  If you’ve ever heard the term “to 86 someone,” it comes from the restaurant industry — code for table eviction.

                  “86 – Sara Huckabee Sanders,” read the note, below the reminder to buy more Pellegrino.

                  One of the servers photographed the whiteboard before going home Friday. He had posted it to his public Facebook wall by the time Wilkinson woke up Saturday. For all the angst that evening, Wilkinson said, everything had taken place with decorum. She had been polite; Sanders had been polite; her family had been polite as they followed her out the door.

                  Not so much the rest of the world, as it discovered Red Hen waiter Jaike Foley-Schultz’s Facebook post: “I just served Sarah huckabee sanders for a total of 2 minutes before my owner asked her to leave.”

                  A fountain of alternately celebratory and outraged comments gushed from Foley-Schultz’s Facebook wall into the Red Hen’s social media accounts.

                  Five stars: “Thank you for refusing to serve a person who lies to the German people for a living.”

                  One star: “They made some snide remark about a ‘spit souffle’ for the Florida Jew.’ ”

                  Between the fury and fawning of 2,000 people who almost certainly had not eaten at the restaurant, the Red Hen’s Yelp reviews almost instantly averaged out to two-and-a-half stars. Another Red Hen in the District was at pains to make clear that it had no affiliation with Wilkinson’s place.

                  And that was before Sanders confirmed the story in a late morning tweet, including the restaurant’s name and location.

                  “I always do my best to treat people, including those I disagree with, respectfully and will continue to do so,” the press secretary wrote. “Her actions say far more about her than about me.”
                  You see, if you don't speak up when they come for the trade unionists, Jews, and other "undesirables," it ends when there's no one left to speak up for you.

                  What would the MSM be saying if this same lady had kicked say Valerie Jarrod or Loretta Lynch out of her restaurant over their political views? I imagine the $h!+ storm of racial hated that would be thrown on this place. I'd even believe that Leftists like Antifa would have gleefully burned it to the ground.

                  A double standard exists here. The Left leaning WaPo can gleefully print a supportive article about a like-thinking woman tossing someone out of her restaurant based on politics. Good thing she wasn't a bakery refusing to make a cake for a gay couple or telling a gay wedding party to leave.

                  This is reprehensible and Ms. Wilkerson should be called out at every turn for her political bigotry.

                    I believe current law states that no one may be discriminated against for reasons of nationality, race, religion, sexual orientation, disability and whatever else I'm missing. I do not believe political orientation will constitutionally protect one from discrimination as I think it borders very thinly on free speech issues....which is why one retains the right to boycott a business if they throw someone out for political reasons.

                    One a personal level, and as a business owner, I find it extraordinarily stupid for a business to publicly take a political side on any issue.

                        I agree completely. Risking your livelihood is one thing, including your staff's is another but they did all agree so they all go down together, if that be the case.

                        In my business, it's just me, but I realize I live or die by no others actions but my own ... and politics in a bar rarely ends well. While you can't see thesame people every week for years and not gather their leanings, my crowd knows I keep it out of my show and keep anyone on a mic reigned in as well. I also guard the National Anthem well. At least a few times a year something comes up that someone wants to sing it. It's always a no, and no one's ever contested after I explain that I hold it to dear and won't let it be given the Rosanne Barr treatment by a drunk in a bar. Everyone's always understood and agreed.

                            Please. As if you missed all of the 'Big Mama' jokes being directed towards Michelle Obama. There were threads here dedicated to mocking her size.

                              Political discrimination should be considered a form of prejudice. That said, don't mix politics with business has always been one of my business mottos. I don't allow any signs of political alignments in any of my businesses such as campaign posters and leaflets, and wear your MAGA hat or Hillary buttons outside of work.

                              Before this event, this restaurant had 111 reviews and four and a half stars. Now it has almost 12,000 reviews, most of which has been deleted by Yelp, and two and a half stars. Yelp claims they are impartial, and has an announcement for people to make there comments on Yelp Talk instead of the review page, but they are deleting all the pro-Sanders threads very quickly, while the praises from the anti-Sanders remain. I saw it in real time. YELP IS BIASED!!!!
