WH Press Sect'y Sarah Sanders Got Booted From Restaurant

...Because she works for Trump.

It's the restaurant's right to refuse service to anyone -  for whatever reason. "No shoes - no shirt - no service"


The Red Hen restaurant owner, Stephanie Wilkinson stressed that she "would have done the same thing again."

Wilkinson told the Post that she asked Sanders to leave at the request of her staff.
"I explained that the restaurant has certain standards that I feel it has to uphold, such as honesty, and compassion, and cooperation," Wilkinson recalled to The Post of her confrontation with Sanders. "I said, 'I'd like to ask you to leave.'"

Sanders' father,  Gov. Mike Huckabee, called it "bigotry".

Trump tweeted:

The Red Hen Restaurant should focus more on cleaning its filthy canopies, doors and windows (badly needs a paint job) rather than refusing to serve a fine person like Sarah Huckabee Sanders. I always had a rule, if a restaurant is dirty on the outside, it is dirty on the inside!

Using the libertarian agenda to further racism Chief. When you could choose the exact opposite.

Sarah Sanders is white.  The Red Hen owner (Stephanie Wilkinson) is white.  How is racism in any way relevant to this story?

You're just trolling again, Dink.  Buzz off.

In a libertarian world, what I imagine the ideal would be is to agree with you in this case, because the woman discriminated against is a Trump supporter, but quietly funnel money to the groups that would press a civil case if they did something like that to a Bernie supporter.

Do people have the right to discriminate against a Trump supporter? Absolutely.

Do people have the right to discriminate against a Bernie supporter? In a libertarian world, no. They'd be sued into the ground, as they should be.

Gotta love institutionalised hypocrisy.
  

This moral relativism of yours is exactly what lets government take this freedom, then that freedom, until we have lost them all.

Let's call it discriminatory behavior based on a biased and unfounded hatred of people who think differently, "racism" against people who look the same but believe different things.

That's the root of bigotry whether the difference that is irrationally hated and despised is in appearance or in thought.

Federal law prohibits that sort of thing.

Imagine if the same had been done to Obama cabinet officials.  All hell would've broken loose.

Yes indeed. "Public accommodation" laws say you must serve the public, even if you hate what they stand for.

Yep.  There will always be double standards.  The bar is set at different heights, depending on one's ethnicity and gender.  We just have to deal with it.

Let's deal with it by erasing race and sex  from everything the government does and require them to treat each individual the same. We never gave them the power to favor white men by having a different law for them than for everyone else.

Agreed Jeff, everyone should be treated like individuals with no favoritism or prejudice.
