Her property, her choice.
Right Against Unlawful Discrimination:
Massachusetts law prohibits discrimination in housing on the basis of race, religion, national origin, age, ancestry, military background or service, sex, sexual preference, marital status, blindness, deafness, or the need of a guide dog, except in owner-occupied two family dwellings. No landlord can refuse to rent you an apartment because you receive a rental subsidy, because the apartment contains lead, or, with some exceptions, because you have children.
Should have said he was a homo - that'll get him to the front of the line in Massachusetts......
Funny and if she refused to rent to say a Black or Hispanic, the same proud Leftists would be demanding her head on a stick.
The lib’s promoted these laws let them live by them.
What is it about Massachusetts? All the weirdo’s in the world seem to collect there.
While I feel an owner has a right to do with as he/she pleases re: property, once it is advertised publically, law comes into play.
My only comment with this is to imagine replacing the word “veteran” with “black.”
A-hole lefties have been forcing lawsuits and deadbeats on property owners for decades. Good on this soldier for turning the tables. I hope he bleeds em’ dry.
Move to Malden Sgt. We’ll get you a place.
He should have said he was a gay transexual.
Unless it's a minority tenant with a Section 8 voucher.
Tell him to sue - but claim that he’s gay.
It’s a damned disgrace these lilly-livered liberal freaks feel they can humilate a veteran, beat and older Tea Party protester, picket a funeral, lie-cheat-and steal to get what they want. A despicable bitch if you ask me.
I’m sick of all the rules/laws about (mocking babyish voice) “discrimination” with what is our own.
We all damn well have the natural right to discriminate. If she wants to, so be it. If I want to say get lost to homos, or to obvious hippies, so be it. Waaah, waaaah, for them. Find someplace else.
Against the law........If you decide to enter the marketplace with your property, you have abide by the laws governing said property.............
“except in owner-occupied two family dwellings”
Huh? So, it only counts if the building is a duplex? (BTW, they need a hyphen for “two-family” - I think.)
” What is it about Massachusetts? All the weirdos in the world seem to collect there.”
Been that way at least since the 1960’s.
What happened to that “diversity” thing? Does that only happen when it’s it goes your way?
What good can come from Massachusetts?
