Fired manager Darin Hodge said the issue erupted when he asked a customer to take off their MAGA hat. In an emailed statement, he said he would do it again.
I stand by my decision to ask the patron to remove his hat. The MAGA hat has come to symbolize racism, bigotry, islamaphobia [sic], misogyny, white supremacy, homophobia. As a person with a strong moral backbone, I had to take a stand against this guests choice of headwear while in my former place of work, he wrote.
Eva Gates, Vice president of Human Resources for the Sequoia Group of Restaurants which owns the Teahouse agreed with how the incident began, but said it amounted to a refusal of service.
Canada or Washington?
“””” As a person with a strong moral backbone,”””””
Ok. you gotta admit that’s some funny stuff.
Is this in Vancouver, Washington, as opposed to Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada?
I recently bought a hat that said: Trump won. Get over it.
Im trying to lose weight and should not be eating out. Ill wear the hat, so when Im denied service it will be in my best interest.
“Fired manager Darin Hodge said the issue erupted when he asked a customer to take off their MAGA hat. In an emailed statement, he said he would do it again. “
Change “take off their hat” to “go to the back of the bus” and maybe, just maybe these idiots would understand.
You shouldn’t be wearing a hat inside anyway.
Yet when we see these idiot mostly college age kids wearing Che Guevara T Shirts, that’s ok, I’m sure. Nobody should say anything.
Irony there, that the real Che Guevara would target such idiot college kids for execution, in his revolutionary violent ferver. I wonder if these idiot kids know anything about the real Che Guevara.
The article says Canada pretty clearly.
News to me. All of that on one little hat?
That, like opening doors for women or pulling their chair out for them, has not been taught in near 40 years.
Thinkin’ BC denotes cana-duh.
Thanks, I missed it.
If it was Canada Princess Trudeau would be sending a cheque for a few million for representing honesty and goodness in the world......
I know, the keyboard nearly got a coffee spewage. Uppity little s**t. But, he our moral superior. LOLOLOLOLOL!
Must be a Fan of the “No Soup For You” guy ,LOL
All they know is that he wore a cool beret and looked like del toro. “It’s all about the revolution and resistance, man.” Fidiots.
“The MAGA hat has come to symbolize racism, bigotry, islamaphobia [sic], misogyny, white supremacy, homophobia.”
The MAGA hat symbolizes the REJECTION of false liberal claims that personal responsibility is an imposition.
The MAGA hat says, “Quit whining and start working hard on your own behalf.”
The MAGA hat reminds us that the Constitution gives us ALL the framework to use our freedoms to make our life and our country the best it can be.
