    So, it seems that Sarah Huckabee Sanders was asked to leave a restaurant last night, because of her job working for Trump. I thought the comments below were pretty richly spot-on.

    KARMA, BITCHES.
    ---------------------------

    Republicans: BUSINESS SHOULD HAVE THE RIGHT TO REFUSE SERVICE BASED ON SINCERELY HELD BELIEFS!

    Business: Get out.
    Republicans: No. See. Ha ha. Not ME. You can't discriminate against ME. That's not what I ... You can't refuse ME! I meant those OTHER people! It's not fair!
    It seems Sarah Huckabee Sanders got refused service last night, and tossed out of a restaurant.
    The Red Hen, an Lexington eatery, refused to serve her -- because she works for Donald Trump -- and asked her to leave. She did. Then she ran home and complained about it on Twitter. This morning, conservatives like her dad -- Governor Reverend Supreme Bestest American Christian Mike Huckabee, who spent his morning making racist comments on Twitter -- are outraged. Livid. Incensed.
    How dare a business refuse service to ... well, a white Christian Republican? How dare they?
    Honestly, I don't understand the complaint.
    I don't.
    I would think Mike Huckabee would be thrilled.
    I would think Sarah Sanders would be jubilant.
    I would think Donald Trump himself would tweet praise for the restaurant.
    I mean, isn't THIS what they wanted?
    Isn't THIS the America Republicans wanted?
    Isn't THIS the America Christian conservatives wanted?
    Isn't this -- this right here -- WHY conservatives and Christians voted for Trump?
    Well, isn't it?
    Isn't this exactly what they wanted? For business to have the right to discriminate based on "sincerely held beliefs?" Isn't THIS right here what they were all crowing about last week? Proclaiming victory for freedom after last week's Supreme Court decision, when they claimed vindication for those Christian baker who refused to serve a gay couple?
    Well?
    Isn't this EXACTLY what they wanted?
    It seems they got it.
    They got exactly what they wanted.
    Fucking hurts when it happens to YOU though, doesn't it?
    They got what they wanted.
    NOW, they're going to get what they deserve.
    News I bring;
    Bells the stag, winter snow
    Summer is past
    Wind high and cold
    Low the sun, short its course
    Seas run strong;
    The russet bracken its shape is lost
    Wild goose raises wanton cry
    Cold lays hold on wings of bird
    Time of ice
    This I heard.

    Nope, that's stupid. Of course the business should be able to refuse, that's speech. The response to speech is speech, which is what the response is. These differences is when the
    government shows up with threat of guns and says you have to serve.

    Pubs are just as whiney as Dems, and, sadly, just as likely to use government to try to enforce their beliefs. That doesn't really give cause to mistating the situation, though. Mock the administration for being thin skinned crybabies, sure, but this had nothing to do with Masterpiece, and, actually, whining it's the right response.

    Indeed. One needs to be omniscient to know that the Republican who keeps defending Trump (authoritarianism, Russia, racism, corruption, etc) and all Republican immoral policies of the last 50 years, voted for (drumroll): the Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump...
    Signature too big and pornographic. Next offense will be a ban.

    The response was pretty tame.

    "Last night I was told by the owner of Red Hen in Lexington, VA to leave because I work for @POTUS and I politely left. Her actions say far more about her than about me. I always do my best to treat people, including those I disagree with, respectfully and will continue to do so"
