As we all know, Red Hen restaurant in Lexington, Virginia asked White House press secretary Sarah Sanders and her family to leave on June 22. The owner of Red Hen, Stephanie Wilkinson, explained to The Washington Post that some of her staff were uncomfortable, including the LGBT staffers, due to Sanders support of a ban on transgender people in the military and a gay couple being refused to have a wedding cake baked for them because of religion.
Wilkinson told The Washington Post that she pulled Sanders to the side and politely asked her to leave, saying, I explained that the restaurant has certain standards that I feel it has to uphold, such as honesty and compassion and cooperation. She also offered the other people the chance to stay, but they refused and what little they ordered, Red Hen gave to them on the house.
Many people on the liberal side of social media sided with the restaurant, arguing that you shouldnt be shocked when your bigotry comes back to bite you. Maxine Waters said at a rally in California, Lets make sure we show up wherever we have to show up. If you see anybody from that cabinet in a restaurant, in a department store, at a gasoline station, you get out and you create a crowd, and you push back on them, and you tell them theyre not welcome anymore, anywhere!
However, U.S. Representative for Marylands 7th congressional district Elijah Cummings says the restaurant should have served Sanders. He told CBSs Face the Nation, First of all, I think as far as the restaurant incident, I think the restaurant owner should have served her. I really do. But he also added, But again, I think President Trump has created this. Since he became president and even before, he has basically given people license to state things that are ugly. Those things then turn into actions. See below:
Does Cummings have a point and is it a slippery slope? On the other hand, is Trump so seriously dangerous that drastic times call for drastic measuresand if you are an accomplice to the presidents lies, like Sarah Sanders, then as a public figure in politics you get what is coming to you?
Either way, we are living in scary times.
Elijah Cummings looks weak and tired.
He should retire.
Maxine is 80 in August. She is just wacky.
How about this: I don’t give a rat’s anymore what any of them think or say.
I have no stomach to listen to their rants and blather.
They can call me whatever they want, and my position is exactly that of many millions who are fed up with the left.
The very worst thing that could happen to the left, has happened.
Their opposition has become deaf.
I just finished watching Farmlands, Lauren Southern's documentary on what's going on in South Africa, which was just released today. The black politicians she interviewed and showed in clips, who said they're just going to take everything, don't sound much different from Maxine Waters.
Well, he may be weak and tired and is normally to the left of Marx, but hes one of the few Dems who have said anything negative about this harassment of GOP members and officials. Give the man credit where it is due.
Frankly (and Seriously), I hope Marxine rides the harassment issue straight to the ‘Rat convention, and runs in 2020 for POTUS on it.
What little they ordered was on the house? I would have thrown it in their faces. If you don’t receive service you don’t pay period. The restaurant should have reimbursed the gas at the very least for wasting their time.
mad maxine is certifiable. Cummings is just a dupe
What type of circumstances might it take to make you in fear of losing your life? This is a question one should ask themselves. Think it through now and think about how you would respond.
Pray for peace, but prepare for war as best you can in your life.
These leftists are unhinged. They are melting down.
This is dangerous, if they are going to harrass people.
This Trump is Hitler horseblank is getting really old.
“....Frankly (and Seriously), I hope Marxine rides the harassment issue straight to the Rat convention, and runs in 2020 for POTUS on it.....”
Agreed. The MadMaxiPad is my all-time favorite RAT. She is the voice and face of the RAT side of the UniParty. She should run for POTUS on the next go-around. She ought to pick that stupid-looking, dumb-azz Lewis as a running mate. It’s the winning team that the RATs should have no trouble supporting. Run, MadMaxie! Run!!!
Neither...they both speak from platforms of “hate-whitey”.
Elijah Cummings is another extremely low IQ person. It’s hard to say whose IQ is lower, his or Maxine’s.
Search for his legislative accomplishments during his long tenure in congress.
What?!? Oh. Yes that’s right, HE DOESN’T HAVE ANY. He’s just another dumb@ss race-baiting professional victim.
Max is so ugly she could stop a mad buffalo, and stupid, too Her reputation is that her IQ is that of a tree frog. CREW says she is the most corrupt member of Congress
I agree. Give credit.......
Actually, I think any restaurant should have the freedom to do business with whomever they want and reject the others. But that should cut both ways. If a restaurant doesn’t want to serve Maxine Waters, it shouldn’t be forced by law to do so.
Blaming the victim, as the left loves to do. The left has characterized Trump as a demon, and in so doing, give themselves license to bully and mistreat Trump and anyone who voted for him. Of course, the left's characterization of Trump has nothing to do with the kind of person he is, but with the left's rage over being denied absolute power.
The more the left acts like Nazi brownshirts, the more nervous I get. They are becoming bolder in their hate.
yes blame someone else for the LEFT’s loony behavior. They take responsibility for nothing.
bad cop—good cop
