Good.

Just call it the Reverse Cake Baker policy. If a baker can refuse to make cakes for a gay wedding, a restaurant can refuse to serve a lying member of the most dishonest White House since Nixon.

Bad.

On an emotional level, I cheer. But on a realistic level, this is just one step further down for the US. Soon shops will have to state their political affiliation at the door, and only those of the appropriate political persuasion will be allowed inside.

Just as well she's not an African American otherwise it would be "Racist"

Funny, awhile ago when the Christian baker turned away a gay couple because he felt making a marriage cake was against his religious convictions, the became unglued and specifically said, he doesn’t have the right to decline these people, it was illegal to do so, now all of a sudden with Sanders being denied service, it’s ok, they have that right, now we’re doing an about face? Pheeew, thank God, the woman is White! Imagine if she were Black and a Democrat, that restaurant would have been shut down within 24 hours.

@Strangerland - you took the words right out of my mouth. The U.S. is creeping down a very dangerous path and this started long before Trump took office. It is just now being accelerated.

As I have posted repeatedly the level of intolerance for those with differing opinions in the U.S. has now reached dangerous levels.

@Bass - The higher courts over-ruled the verdict and ruled the baker should not have been forced to make the cake for the gay couple (actually I think the higher court was right on this one based on the verbiage of the ruling)

It takes a lot of heart to stand up to injustice when your pocketbook is on the line. Bravo. 

Your behavior at White House press conferences is not respectful to the reporters in the room. I think the Red Hen owner treated you with a lot more respect than you show other people. Guess the Golden Rule doesn't apply to you, or your understanding of Romans 13.

The conservatives make the quickest flip flops on the issues. Backed the baker you didn't want to make a cake for a GAY couple and now comes the flip flop on Sarah Sanders denied service or dial back to Trump when he refused to rent apartments to Blacks.

That’s ok, thank God, she can go to other restaurants, I would be like whatever and leave. Not a problem, it’s not the only restaurant in town.

 

Your behavior at White House press conferences is not respectful to the reporters in the room.

And neither are the reporters towards her, as a matter of fact, I’m impressed how she can can shut these nut jobs down. Good on her.

I feel like this, they don’t want to serve Sanders, go to a different restaurant. I don’t think Sanders is going to waste her time on one looney restaurant, she’s not a whiny baby, leave that to the left, just say, “ok, thank you” and walk out, don’t lower yourself and go to one that will take you and serve you.

A private business is a private business but a certain level of civility and decency is still expected in society.

America is going down an ugly path.

Haaa Nemui - thanks for posting that extremely good write-up of what happened. I'd advise anyone else interested in the story to read it.

1 ( +6 / -5 )

I'm torn.

On the one hand, I think that public establishments should serve everyone. Including gay couples who want wedding cakes. 

On the other hand, the Trump people are teetering on the edge of crimes against humanity.

-sigh-

What if the person turned away was a Black Lives Matter spokesperson? Would liberals still be celebrating it?

Trump didn't create the hate and intolerance. He exposed it.

Well, all I know is that the way the Left keeps carrying on about 2016, they are just cementing the inevitable in 2020.

3 ( +9 / -6 )

I am still with Strangerland - the level of intolerance is dangerous and nothing to celebrate at all. Other thoughts...

@Haaa Nemui - Thank you for posting this story. I read it completely. Actually in the end it sounds like both parties handled this well at the restaurant and were civil. The owner asked Ms. Sanders to leave, politely, and Ms. Sanders said OK, politely and offered to pay. The owner comped whatever they consumed up to that point. End of story.....well, no...

This got to the media via a Facebook post and here we are. The story got sensationalized and now those involved are tweeting, giving interviews, etc.

20 years ago this would never have made the news.

Is this a good or bad thing? I do not know.

In my opinion, the Colorado case is very different (I am very pro Gay marriage). A gay couple asked a bakery to bake a cake. The owner of the bakery is a devout Christian (rightly or wrongly so that is his belief) and he refused. He said he would bake a cake for them for any other occasion but not for a marriage as it is against his beliefs. At the time he was asked to bake a cake. Gay marriage was banned by the state Constitution at the time he as asked to bake the cake. The lower courts ruled against the baker. The upper courts ruled in his favor.

11 ( +12 / -1 )

I agree, the intolerance is just stupid be it from the left or the right. The fact that it's being celebrated is disturbing.

Trump didn't create the hate and intolerance. He exposed it.

He exploited it.

11 ( +17 / -6 )

@Tokyo-Engr and cucashopboy - yeah the story adds at least some perspective to the situation. Both parties appear to have acted in good manner. It's more than can be said for a lot of people from BOTH sides who are commenting about it. I think the sensationalism is a dangerous thing. The staff member who initially posted about it really shouldn't have IMO.

They could have played the religion card and said serving someone who works for an administration which egregiously violates Christian principles was unconscionable. The religion card does seem to allow for behaviour otherwise regarded as unacceptable.

To be honest, I would have served them. Don’t sink to the level of the ‘virtuous’.

@zichi: The conservatives make the quickest flip flops on the issues.

The authoritarian Left is at it again. Attacking the Christian baker for his case that went to the Supreme Court declaring that instead of balancing conflicting rights that gay rights should be placed above First amendment religious and speech rights. Now they are denying a person the right to public accommodation based on her political views. Along with their identity politics and racial attacks on those wanting a color blind country the Left are taking Americans back to a pre-1960’s era. Keep it up and that clown Trump will get re-elected with ease.

Are you?

Well that doesn't surprise me.

6 ( +8 / -2 )

If someone can choose to refuse service to someone based on religious beliefs, no reason someone else can't do it based on political beliefs. That's pretty straightforward.

Having been working in hotel or restaurant for years, People are just being unprofessional in both cases : you are here to work, not do politics. Unless someone is causing trouble, there is no reason to turn away a customer.

Well as Trump can testify when he refused to rent apartments to blacks in New York, "nothing personal just business!"

She helps promote the view that there are second class citizens. I guess we are all second class citizens on someone’s list.

Or maybe the owner is Christian and thought she was a lesbian and didn’t want to serve her. Heroes?

On the bright side, better to be thrown out than find something floating in your cream of corn soup.

So, we have Episode 213 in "Useless Virtue Signalling". Nothing like a tiny fisted tantrum to satisfy one's delicate ego that they are Speaking Truth to Power/sarc.

Please, can there at least be one or two areas of life where politics doesn't intrude? It's unseemly and immature to demand ideological purity to get a cheese platter. Just turn the situation around and see how it sets: imagine a restaurant refuses to serve George Stephanopoulos (sp) because he was once press secretary for Pres. Clinton, who incarcerated millions of black Americans in the age of "zero tolerance". Justified?

There really is no comparison to the Masterpiece Bakery scenario. One involved artistic expression, the other a mass produced meal. Sorry, no need to conflate the two.

-2 ( +5 / -7 )

It's very simple: Christian bakers who refuse to bake cakes for gay couples are discriminating against them for who they are, which is utterly immoral.

A restaurant that kicks out SS is choosing not to serve her based on what she chooses to do. This is prudent and good business.

It's kind of funny to watch the right being outraged that they are being judged by the content of their character rather than by the color of their skin, but their anger over this reveals a much deeper insecurity. Their membership in the Trump cult has from the beginning been based on the assumption that they could play this little game of helping to destroy innocent people's lives, and then take off their MAGA hats in polite company and never suffer the consequences for their evil behavior. Now that stories like this are coming out, along with stories about how being a Trump staffer in DC makes it impossible to get laid, people are starting to realize their membership in this cult could actually hurt them. And that's going to be terrifying for them.

This. As someone who worked my way through college and grad school waiting tables, trust me when I say don't piss off your waiter. And if you're a bad tipper, don't come back.

5 ( +8 / -3 )

Katsu; your baker analogy is clearly flawed at the base. The baker was clear that he was more than happy to serve gay people anything in his shop. However, he would not make a special order to be used in a gay wedding, regardless of who requested it. A more accurate analogy would be if Sanders had requested a cheese platter shaped into the form of Trump's head, or a mashed potato sculpture in the shape of a KKK hood.

But I think you know that. You're just struggling to find some justification for what is prima facie rude behavior on the part of the restaurant. This really isn't a principle worth fighting for.

Do you think it is really a good idea to drag politics into this? Remember, right wing people tend to vote with their money too. Remember the whole Chick-fil-A fiasco...

You're just struggling to find some justification for what is prima facie rude behavior on the part of the restaurant.

I wholeheartedly endorse rude behavior toward fascists and those who support them. There is no need for external justification for rude behavior toward fascists, rude behavior toward fascists is its own justification.

Do you think it is really a good idea to drag politics into this? 

Absolutely I do. If you are going to support destroying an innocent child's life because of what choices their parent made, you deserve to get embarrassed at a restaurant at a minimum. The Trump Regime has proven that legal institutions won't stop their takeover and social institutions won't stop their takeover, so the only alternative left is to fight them directly with individual social consequences.

-2 ( +5 / -7 )

Time for all service providers to put Democrat or Republican signs on their door, and everybody can serve and be served accordingly.

This is where it's all leading.

2 ( +7 / -5 )

Katsu; now you know why the Republicans will win the midterm elections. And quite probably re-elect Trump in 2020. Congratulations.

Your definition of "fascist" probably needs some fine tuning as well. Would you be OK with the same treatment being given to Democrats? Kamala Harris kicked out of a restaurant for being pro-choice for example?

The alternative for the left is to win the battle of ideas, not the battle of cheese platters. But I guess that would take too much effort. Better to spend time on pointless gestures and petty childishness.

I also feel sorry for the staff at the restaurant. Republicans are better tippers than Democrats, so they lost the chance of a good payday.

Attilathehungry - please read the link Haanemui posted. There was no virtual signalling or tantrums, all sides exposed with the utmost decorum.

Cusas; I would say that refusing to serve someone, merely based on that person's political beliefs, is the ultimate in virtue signalling. Not to mention that there were 7 others in her party, none of whom work for the government I believe.

"Utmost decorum" would be serving a person with whom you disagree and doing so graciously.

-1 ( +6 / -7 )

No matter how you look at this. It was wrong. The baker was wrong too. You do not kick someone out of your place and business just because they don't jive with you politically. Mrs. Sanders deserves to be treated with respect. On the flip side of this. Mrs. Clinton deserves to be treated with respect if the rolls were reversed. It was a sit down for a meal. The Red hen owner should offer a serious apology. This is taking it to far.

Hit the minus key all you want. A business owner of a restaurant in Lexington V.A. should not have kicked anyone out of the Hen House from the White House. I lived in area of Virginia where the Red Hen is located ten years. The majority Virginians from the area simply would say. We can agree to disagree. How are your kids? Would you like to see the win list? And the striped bass brought in from the Chesapeake bay was brought in fresh today Maam.

I am sure Mrs Sanders went Palms at the corner of Nelson and Jefferson.

The anti-Trump blowback is getting this personal. I have never seen anything like this in the United States, not even during Watergate. And it is only the beginning.

Remarkably, even the conservative George F. Will has turned against Trump and the Republicans.

The genteel art of debate has gone out the window. But that was tossed by Trump before he was elected. And indeed there is no genteel way of dealing with Trump and the liars and thugs behind him.

Where will this lead? I can be fairly sure of one thing. The Democrats will win big in November. Beyond that, it’s anyone’s guess. As the Chinese saying goes, we are living in interesting times.

It shows a shocking depth of hatred for you to equivocate a political position that definitionally does no harm to people regardless of how unpleasant it is, with Trump's needlessly cruel policy that does harm to innocent living children, is economically wasteful, and doesn't even solve the problem it was meant to address. But nonetheless, a business does have the right to refuse service to a customer because of their behavior.

You can bluster all you want about how Republicans are going to win an election where the sitting GOP President is already at near record levels of support for impeachment, but the fact is that American businesses have always had this right. The fact that right-wing owners have never exercised it for political reasons tells us everything we need to know about the economic factors in play here.

Not that uncommon for restos/biz to refuse to serve 'polarising figures'.

Trump Republicans and their acolytes are liars who make a living on the hatred and misery of others.

As the uber-capitalists always like to point out, it's the owner's right to chose who he does business with or not.

Right?

Katsu; leaving aside the dubious claim that abortion does no harm to anyone...

...it is not hatred to suggest that political issues should not be the basis for cordial hospitality. There is nothing to indicate that Sanders' behavior was anything but polite, so that is not an issue. It's just another example of the immaturity of modern society and the lack of tolerance that the left frequently displays. Imagine this had happened to an official in the Obama cabinet. The outrage would be huge, and rightly so.

This kind of thing is great fodder for the election, and will be a motivator for the GOP, so thanks!

Love the claim to refusal on "moral grounds." So it's morally upright to refuse to serve those with whom you disagree? Does the owner pose political inquiries to all prospective customers at the door to "keep it moral"?

This pathetic and hateful behavior will only serve to exasperate and heighten the divide that's being fomented by powerful media entities. In the end, such will not only hurt all of us, but will bite this business owner for such a crass and tasteless act.

It makes extremist liberals look unhinged.

But I hope you're not trying to pretend your party doesn't have extremist problems as well. We could list things like ripping kids away from their parents and keeping them in cages, or running down protestors with cars and tiki torches to show the problems on the right as well.

Extremism is never good, and if you are only willing to condemn the extremism on the other team, while not admitting the extremism on your own team, you are part of the problem. We need to eliminate the extremism on both sides. Extremism does not justify extremism.

It is however hatred to try and and pretend that stealing children from their parents, putting them in concentration camps, losing the records of who is in what family so they can't be reunited, or illegally throwing them into prison when they never committed a crime is in any way equivalent to whatever your pet political issue is.

When your political issue is causing life-long trauma to innocent children, you deserve zero cordial hospitality and I will lose zero sleep about any supporter of this brutally racist attempt at fascism getting their feelings hurt because someone said something mean to them one time.

Just call it plain stupid. You can’t just refuse tinserve someone because you don’t like them. Such a fine attitude by the left will put us back 50 years.

It took 70 comments, but finally Godwin's Law was brought into the discussion. Congratulations!

It is ridiculous to compare what is happening to some (not all) of the minor children crossing into the US illegally to concentration camps. Not to mention grievously insulting to the memories of those who actually experienced such horror.

Again, the hyperbole and exaggeration does nothing to actually move the discussion along. It only provides fuel for the inevitable backlash that will be seen in November. Also sets a bad precedent for the future. I wonder if your tune will change when the shoe is on the other foot?

I've heard Sanders was born in Kenya, and I will embark on a vehement six-year crusade to demand she prove she wasn't until the instant I drop the subject forever when it no longer serves my purpose.

That is unhinged. What the restaurant did was perhaps a tad overreaction to understandable frustration towards a woman who fronts for a hypocritical, immoral, lying administration.

The restaurant owner here is wrong on two fronts; 1) common business courtesy says to extend your business to any patron, an 2) we shouldn't advance polarization - it only makes it worse. Yes, Saunders is press spokesperson for a President that is a psychotic, and she has been exposed as a serial liar also. But two wrongs don't make a right. It was also rude and in bad form to shout down the Homeland Security Director (another serial liar) as she was eating.

One thing we (Republicans and Democrats) have to prove is that we're not like Trump and his supporters - we have moral standards, we believe in decency and compassion. Let them wallow in their hate, fear and intolerance. Mrs Obama's words have never been more relevant - let them go low, we'll go high. .

Spare me the left/right/Lib/Con two-dimensional lecture. The Restaurant owner may be a card-carrying Repub for all you know.

One thing I do notice here - while some of the posters that are non-Trump supporters engage in the lib/con zero-sum labeling, all the pro-Trump posters are stuck in the Faux News mind-meld where you can be pro-defense, pro-business, pro-balanced budget, but unless you swear absolute fealty to "The Donald", you're called a Lefty Liberal. The whole Liberal/Conservative narrative is nothing but a huge con game from the folks at Faux News to manipulate the weak minded to watch their network so they can make money off advertising. Every talking head on Faux News has learned the Bill O'Reilly example and is lining their pockets hawking some conspiracy-laden book on their show to those stupid enough to buy it. Faux News - we deceive, and those weak of mind believe...

Get a load of this guy who thinks stealing children at the border and losing them in an internment camp is consistent with democracy but throwing someone out of a private business because they do terrible stuff isn't.

That's the right wing of today: no principles, no guiding morality, just open abuse for minorities and demands for the most gentle treatment for themselves.

Let see just this week. Sanders kicked out of restaurant. Misleading Time magazine cover. Incorrectly dated photos. False story about Downs kid. Obscenities yelled at Trump inside the Capitol. Congressman flipped off Mike Pence. Stormy and Kathy Griffin flipped off trump. Steven miller called a Nazi and doxxed by address and phone. Disabled mil veteran ICE agent falsely called Nazi. ICE agents doxxed in downloadable database. Obama created Detention centers called concentration camps. DHS secretary protested at dinner and at her home Melania physically threatened. Barron threatened with sex assault. Trump Jr 4 yr old daughter threatened with violence.

Well, quite a few of these are bogus - but those that are legitimate are absolutely wrong. Specifically any bullying of Barron Trump is absolutely unacceptable. Whether your Dad happens to be President, or if you are fleeing a narco-state in fear of your life, all children deserve protection.

But here's the difference between Trump and non-Trump supporters - self-reflection: we can criticize those that share our views when they go overboard and cross the line (see my posts above and those criticizing Robert DeNiro). Those that are captured by the cult of Trump on the other hand can't dare criticize their own - how about that good ole' down home fella (and Sarah's Dad) Mike Huckabee - yesterday saying that MS-13 is Nancy Pelosi's campaign committee.....what a reasoned, intelligent thing to say...

Uh no the owners already posted a family picture all wearing pink hats, we know what they are.

Democrats have never done well in the midterms, and Trump supporters are fanatics who will be out in droves to vote. I think the Republicans will be much more likely to get out there and vote come November.

I don't think it's "Trump supporters" that the Democrats should be worried about, but rather the average, relatively apolitical American voters. These are the people that are getting more and more turned off by unhinged tantrums by the Left.

The country isn't just made up of hardcore Trump supporters and hardcore Trump haters. It's mostly made up of people who are just trying to go about their lives and take care of their families. And this kind of stuff really turns them off. It doesn't necessarily make them support Trump, but it does make them vote against whomever is supported by the people who act this way.

Two years after 2016, the Democrats still don't get it. They're still trying to figure out why so many people supported Trump. They should be self-reflecting on how their own identity politics/Oppression Olympics strategy backfired. Trump didn't win because the balance tipped in his favor. He won because the balance tipped against the Democrats.

How? She’ll just go to a different restaurant, problem solved. She walked away with grace, it’s not the only restaurant in town.

As the uber-capitalists always like to point out, it's the owner's right to chose who he does business with or not.

Oh, now it’s the owners right, but before you lefties were screaming, people can’t do that, it’s blatant discrimination if someone denies another service, because that would mean, if the person is Black, they could deny them service as well, therefore we shouldn’t discriminate against anyone, that’s what the left has been saying, so now what? Is this another selective liberal outrage again?

The left has been on a two year tantrum since Trump surprisingly won the election. They were all so sure that Hillary would be their Queen, it still sticks in their collective throats.

Hence, any little chance that comes along to wag a finger in faux outrage is a reason to posture and preen, to "take a stand" and show their bravery in the face of fascism. Give me a break.

So how do open borders Leftists live with the guilt of enticing parents to risk the lives of their children by entrusting them to smuggling/drug cartels crossing miles of desert, exposing them to a harsh environment, rapists, abuse, hunger, and deprivation? I guess they just pretend that pursuing policies that encourage poor people to risk a dangerous trek through harsh conditions relying on human traffickers which can result in a multitude of tragedies and deaths is a non-existent fallacy conjured in the minds of responsible public officials. I suppose the risk to the children is worth it in order for them to win future elections. The ends always seem to justify the means.

What is also important to the Left is to deprive their political opponents of the same public accommodations they insist they be allowed. Because cognitive dissonance is their thing as-long-as their is a political benefit in it for them.

Non sequitur. A cheap play for emotional effect due to the lack of a logical argument to denfend an indefensible position. Open borders Dems are encouraging poor and desperate people to break America's immigration laws and risk their lives and the the lives of their children for a chance to steal a golden ticket out of their hell hole countries. There are more poor and desperate people in the world than American taxpayers to support them. There is a legal and orderly way to immigrate to every country in the world - including the ones from which these poor souls are fleeing. Meanwhile, Dems back home are denying public accommodations to those that oppose a mangling of immigration law in order to make current American immigration policy essentially open borders. I know Dems are desperate to import as many poor people from Socialist leaning countries as possible in order to vote themselves a Socialist state. But they shouldn't be doing so at the expense of children being subject to abuse and possible death making such a long hazardous journey. Where is the sympathy for the little 10 year old Guatemalan girl raped by the human traffickers her parents hired to get them across the border? (that was for cheap emotional effect).

The main problem with the restaurant denying service to Sanders is that it leads to exactly what we are seeing here - the right accusing the left of some authoritarian behavior. And there isn't really an argument against that as they are right. It doesn't matter that the right is way more oppressive and inflexible than the left 95% of the time, because they are right this time. This is why it's so important to maintain the high road even when the other team goes low, because once you go low, you are no better than that which you profess to oppose.

It appears that the Right and Left in America are beginning to come to a consensus that they should not have to tolerate people that they disagree with. Of course in the case of the wedding cake baker he was defending his first amendment rights in a case involving conflicting rights. The restaurant owner was defending her non-existent right to refuse a public accommodation. Not exactly the same thing.

After 100 plus comments, we have actually overlooked the real reason that Sanders was asked to leave. It had NOTHING to do with immigration policy or children. At first. the staff at the restaurant were upset over Trump's policy about LBGT people serving in the military. That is why they called the owner and asked for Sanders to be thrown out. After that, as usual, things got heated and hysterical and conflated.

Oh, and the restaurant staff outed themselves on social media by crowing about the situation BEFORE Sanders tweeted about it. As usual with social justice worriers, they were bursting with anxiety and desperately wanted to get some ego stroking from like minded souls.

Although the Dinner may have been a Private matter, because the refusal was based purely upon Politics - the persons involved sole job, it no longer became a Private matter, but one for Public debate.

The owner had to be called in to settle this pearl-clutching dilemma. At the wait staff's/hater's/bully's request, the owner requested that Sanders leave the restaurant.

Two things: First, the Press Secretary could have handled the matter a bit differently. Jase Robertson (one of the sons of Phil Robertson of the DUCK DYNASTY fame, and part-owner of DUCK COMMANDER OUTDOOR FITTERS, on tee-vee) was accused of being homeless and was refused service either by an airline company or a high-end retail store (I can't remember exactly which), and he just laughed it off and went to their competitor: no publicity; no Twitter Tweet; no Facebook filler; no whining or complaining to the media machinery; he simply went to the competition and did business with them, laughing all the way.

Secondly, there used to be a day and an age where politics ended at 5pm. Even hardcore liberal House Speaker Tip O'Neill and Very Conservative President Ronald Reagan - probably the two greatest adversaries of each other politically - could, at the end of the workday, go and share a meal, or laugh about life over lunch, leaving politics in the House and Executive Buildings, respectively. There used to be informed opinion and sourced facts on both sides, which usually produced civil and respectful discourse. All of that is largely gone these days, and that's a real shame.

I agree with those who've said that this episode simply further brings down US Prestige, and that there are better things over which to argue and about which to be all public. Being asked by a narrow minded owner to leave a restaurant is about #1,245,787 in importance...

But liberals were soooo adamant about a Christian baker not wanting to serve a gay couple, as a matter of fact, they called it outright racism and homophobia and that this couple had the very audacity to turn down their request, they were sued and last month after a 6 year battle, the Supreme Court ruled in this individual case that the man had the right to refuse service based on his religious convictions, only on THIS particular case, the baker wants to resume his job and guess what, he’s now getting death threats, so the moral of the story is, if you are a whiny liberal, others have to tow the line and serve or treat them it’s their birthright or else you get threatened or bullied into oblivion, but if you are a conservative liberals have every right to treat you bad or....not treat or serve you at all, accept it and shut up.

Oh don't worry, the Trump internet army will go after the business. It happens pretty much every time someone gets in the news for crossing Trump. The death threats will start in 3...2...1.

Add to that Peter Fonda going after Melania and Trump’s son, Rep Maxine Waters rallying the far Left to go after Trump’s cabinet members and Trump supporters, the Left-wing media labeling the Trump administration as Nazi’s and fascist and you have the same dangerous conditions that led to a Left wing activist to attempt to kill Republicans practicing for the annual Congressional baseball game.

The Left are losing their collectivist minds.
