OPINION: It was Wrong to Kick Sarah Sanders Out

By Nick Baum

MONDAY – 6/25/18

One of the biggest stories over the weekend was the controversial decision for the Red Hen Restaurant in Lexington, Virginia, to kick White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders out, simply because she was politically different and that they didn’t like her boss. While others claim that the restaurant was serving some LGBT members that asked for her to leave, even that excuse doesn’t play out. Sanders is the spokesperson for Donald Trump, who isn’t anti-LGBT, he just doesn’t think it’s a current issue anymore because it has been nationally legalized.

Others also claim that the restaurant has the right to kick her out, and in fact, yes, the restaurant has the freedom to do so. The baker case in the Supreme Court proved that you can be kicked out or refused service based on any aspect of yourself. However, kicking Sanders out is different than the baker refusing to serve the gay couple. Serving the gay couple went against the baker’s moral and religious values, and that serving them would be a violation or what he held so dear. However, the entire reason they didn’t serve Sanders was because she was part of an administration that she didn’t like.

Rep. Maxine Waters, a crazy idiotic congresswoman that even I think I can do better than, encouraged more people to harass and threaten Trump administration officials. Encouraging violence based on your political beliefs? That sounds like opposition Venezuelans being placed under house arrest, or people speaking out in North Korea, Nazi Germany, or the Soviet Union would’ve been treated. Is rep. Waters the true dictator? Besides her, it is all around wrong but legal to refuse service to someone just because they disagree with you, politically different than you, and/or because they work for someone you don’t like. Can she just enjoy a meal?

  1. Hey Nick…
    I’m just seeing this now and understand your feelings. But I’m trying to understand how you see a right to refuse service due to disagreement in political party or way of life but how does that differ from refusing to serve someone of a different skin color or religion? I’m not sure there is one, and don’t agree that making America great means going back to a time this was ok. If you’re in business in America, I believe in equal acess. Your thoughts?

    And I agree we shouldn’t fight fire with fire as Rep. Waters seems to indicate. Not good. DP


    1. Hello DP, I believe that there is a difference between refusing service based on political differences and refusing services based on sexuality. You see, the baker refused to serve the gay couple because it went against his religious and moral beliefs, compared to refusing service to those who are politically different than you, who you are refusing service to based on disagreement and differences in terms of politics.
      Hope this clears things up, I honestly don’t know if I already typed that in the article, but I’m happy we can find common ground on Rep. Waters’s tactics.
