Uber, Lyft, DC restaurants to ban 'Unite the Right' rally participants;

Refusing service on the basis of not liking someone‘s affiliations. Interesting precedent.

White supremacists and white nationalists heading to Washington, D.C., for Sunday’s second Unite the Right rally may have trouble finding a way to get there or a place to eat, according to reports.

In preparation for the rally near the White House, Uber and Lyft told drivers they have a right to kick a passenger out of car if they are harassed or threatened, The Washington Post reported.

At the same time, the Restaurant Association of Metropolitan Washington sent out a toolkit informing restaurateurs of their legal rights to refuse service to white nationalists and other political fringe groups, The Washingtonian reported.

Uber
recently sent a message to its drivers in the Washington region, reminding them of community guidelines — and eject a fare who is harassing or threatening, The Post reported.

“Regardless of event, drivers are advised to follow all local laws but have the right to refuse service to riders who are disrespectful or who make them feel unsafe,” the message from Uber said.

Lyft drivers received similar instructions, the paper reported

The Washingtonian interviewed several restaurant owners who said they are threatening to refuse service to those participating in the rally--or planning to close altogether.

“Our mentality is we’re going to protect each other. This is our city. Our house. Our people,” Founding Farmers owner Dan Simons told the magazine.

“There are times when a guest can be rude to an employee and you swap out the server. We’ve told our team: this isn’t what that is. You don’t have to be in a room with someone who’s advocating for your death and enslavement," he added.


Ellen Kassoff Gray, owner of Equinox restaurant near the White House, also said she would refuse to serve those who espouse hate.

“I’ll proudly stay open and serve those who’re respectful and kind. But being a Jewish restaurant owner and having a pro-Nazi group come to town, would I refuse service? Yes, I would,” Kassoff Gray told The Washingtonian.

Me neither. And I won’t have a problem with it when members of other groups or affiliations are denied a ride or a meal or a cake.

What they are doing is counter to everything they claim to stand for. Of course, what they claim to stand for, and what they actually stand for, are two different things, so it's not surprising.

Morons use false equivalence to justify their bigotry.

Just saving everyone the trouble of reading the thread.

So refusing service if "white" means they can engage in discrimination based on race. I thought that was illegal under current law? I thought they didn't agree with discrimination based on race or color.

I can see if the people are acting threatening or rude but not if they're doing it 'cuz their "white" under current law.

I read the OP.

Then I read your post.

Then I re-read the OP, because I assumed I must have missed the part where anybody said anything about refusing service "if white". There was nothing in the OP about refusing service "if white". It was all about refusing service to people based upon their behavior.

So then I clicked on the link and read the article on the Fox News site. There was nothing in the article about refusing service "if white".

The article on the Fox News site referenced an article about this in the Washington Post, so I clicked on the link to THAT article to see if I could find where you saw the reference to refusing service "if white".

The article in the Washington Post is behind a paywall, so I was unable to read that in my attempt to figure out if you had actually seen ANYTHING remotely similar to what you claimed, or if you were just making shit up.

So, please tell me where you saw the reference to refusing service "if white". I'd hate to think you just made it up.

Unrelated to the thread I strongly recommend you buy a subscription to wapo. Worth every penny. As a subscriber, I sometimes get codes for no strings attached free month subscriptions if you’re interested.

You should take him up on this Lex. It's getting harder and harder to be a radical lefty these days without access to the propaganda Wapo provides. Take me for example, I don't read Wapo at all, and I am forever cursed to be a red blooded American. It's a cross I have to bear

But don't let that happen to you, buy the Wapo, read the Wapo, live the Wapo.

Get the **** out of here with that bullshit.

Based upon your posts, I'm sure you spend a lot of time reading FoxNews.com, Breitbart, and The Daily Caller.

Settle down man. You couldn't tell I was just goofing with you?

And while I am talking to you and all jokes aside, you honestly have finally posted a sig line that might change a few minds on Trump. It definitely ticks me off.

(And FTR, I don't think I have ever read Breitbart, or The Daily Caller unless they were linked here. I know so little about The Daily Caller, I didn't even know it was right leaning. I do read some Fox from time to time.)
