Vanity: Obama supporters angry at Chattanooga restaurant

Posted on 07/30/2013 5:15:43 PM PDT by GrootheWanderer

Apparently, one of the local TV stations reported that Bea's Restaurant refused to serve President Obama when he was in Chattanooga today.

The owner says the president's people did call and ask him to provide some catered food. But the restaurant is closed on Tuesday's, so he turned them down.

Apparently, this has become a bit of a controversy, and they had people calling them racist on their Facebook page.

The owner tried to explain that the same thing happened back when George H.W. Bush was president and they weren't making any political statement either time. He just thought his employees worked hard the rest of the week and deserved their days of.

In today’s world, anyone “dissing” the president is a racist. That’s how it is.

A wasted effort... The "Zimmerman-is-guilty" crowd has rendered its verdict.

They were closed. That would be enough for anyone who was sane to understand the difference. While I would applaud a guy who said “shove it” to Obie Won, this guy was not him.

And who would have notified 'one of the local TV stations'? I give you one guess.

To those who are accusing the restaurant of racism I would say that the real reason is that the restaurant is homophobic. They simply did not want to serve a notorious homosexual such as Obama.

Here is the level of discourse on the Facebook thread:

Tynesia Brown:   All y'all prejudice.. Stick to your guns man please... It's an honor to provide The President his food... Rather he is black or white just so happens he is a black man...Shame on you rather it was catering or opening the restaurant for him you could have had volunteers come in but I can clearly see the only ppl that are slapping you on your back are clearly the opposite color of me...so kiddos on all the folks that finally showed their hoods from the closet... Dually noted We know you didn't want our asses in their cause that is what would have happened

Reminded me a year ago when a couple of homos were protesting In N Out Burger on a sunny Sunday here in Hollywood and one of the cars passed by and yelled “they’re closed on Sundays, fags!”

People need to visit this restaurant and tell him thank you for staying with your principles. You’re closed Tuesday, you’re closed no matter who is coming. Good for the owner!

I don’t care who is visiting, the owner has a right to leave the restaurant closed on it’s normal closing day.

for what it’s worth, it takes some pretty big ones for the President to go to that area. northwest GA and Southeast TN is one of the most conservative area in the South...

Sounds like O is having a rough time in the volunteer state.

He get blistered by a paper, then a restaurant that is not open won’t serve him, clearly a racist move. Set your hours of operation so they can’t serve Bush or Obama, very racist.

Stupidity has to do with the color of your brain, the red color of statism, and you wonder why the statist’s have there fist symbol. It’s has nothing to do with shaking hands, it’s about beating you into submission because you my friends, do not understand. They are gods, and will mold the world to there perfection.

“I never thought Zippy would go to Tennessee, is he going to sue Gibson guitar again?”

He came here for one of the debates in 08, once to honor a failing black high school in Memphis in the first term. He comes now expecting adulation from the masses over something he had nothing to do with? Stay away , leave us the eff alone, we’re doing fine without your presense

We need to take control of the game by playing the race card “I am Spartacus” style until the groove is worn off this broken record. If anyone disagrees with anything I want, well, we all know why.

That’s actually one of the more coherent ones. He had to delete at least one thread.

As he pointed out on one of those threads, he doesn’t give anyone special treatment over his regular customers. Jeff Foxworthy and Lee Greenwood, for instance, got seated at tables with complete strangers when they came in, just as anyone else would who wasn’t in a party large enough to fill a full table.

"But the restaurant is closed on Tuesday's, so he turned them down."

Or maybe they heard about barry's penchant for not paying his bills when he's out campaigning.
