Above: Gang colors that reportedly offended a Pizza Hut manager in Green Bay, Wisconsin.
According to a Facebook post by a user calling himself Rick Libertas Semper, a popular pizza chain refused to serve him because he was wearing four patches signifying his service as a U.S. Marine. According to his profile, he lives in Green Bay, Wis.
I decided to go to Pizza Hut for their lunch buffet after work and was approached by the manager who came to tell me that for the safety of the patrons and staff they do not allow people in the restaurant wearing gang colors, he wrote.
Of course, according to his account, the only gang his colors represent is the Marine Corps.
I was wearing my black leather jacket that has 4 patches and the back of the jacket is embroidered, he recalled. One patch says USMC, the other patch says Marine Combat Veteran, the 3rd patch is the unit patch for 3rd Marines 3rd Batallion and there is a patch of the US flag on it.
The back of his jacket, he explained, is covered by an embroidered USMC emblem.
I pointed out that these are not gang colors but represent one of the branches of our military, he wrote, explaining he is a veteran and has earned the right to wear them.
The manager, however, reportedly said he cant be expected to know the difference between patches so they just dont allow any of them in the restaurant.
The veteran recounted his experience as evidence that the world is full of idiots, though he recognized the incident was isolated and doesnt necessarily represent the views of all Pizza Hut franchises.
In a response to his initial post, he wrote that he believes it was just a case of a young manager trying to look like he was in control.
Nevertheless, reports of companies treating veterans with disrespect continue to surface across the nation. Making matters worse, our government is not only shrinking our active military ranks; it is providing fewer and fewer resources for those returning with physical and mental needs.
Let me guess. He dressed like a 1% biker and is pissed because he was treated like a 1% biker.
The manager hates. Was this a hate crime?
“Thank you for your service ... now leave!”
I believe the same thing happened to Col. West
The "USMC" should have been a tipoff but in order to read it you have to know the alphabet all the way to the letter "U".
Would you want someone this stupid managing a business you owned?
Definitely a Charter Member of "The Red Diaper Baby Low-Info Idiots" ?
It’s not like USMC was written in cursive ...
I’d boycott Pizza Slut, but I never eat there anyway.
Seems reasonably self explanatory. Difficult to confuse this with the Gangster Disciples, or some such ...
explaining he is a veteran and has earned the right to wear them.
Indeed he has.
And the owner, and the manager, of the store have the right to ask him to leave.
And the rest of us have the right to say that said owner and manager are a bunch of friggin' idiots. And the right to refrain from patronizing that establishment. And the right to publicize the facts.
Freedom of Speech, and Freedom of Association are great! The unnamed manager seems on track to find out that free people don't like his brand of idiocy.
Even 1%er’s are due SOME amount of respect.
In any case, one would have to be a fountain of ignorance, stupidity and vacuousness to be so blind as to be incapable of reading United States Marine Corps on a jacket or a shirt or a cap.
Defend the “manager” all you want, he is still a waste of human skin.
Doomed from the start.
The Pizza Hut manager is most likely an Obama Boy!
ah yes but it wasn’t in txt...
The real criminal here are demonrats that have adopted immigration and crime policies tat allow gangs to exist.
local veterans should picket daily and boycott it
A blank eyed, slack jawed mouth breathing vegetable?
