Doesn't change my underlying point, there is no good reason that a business can't pick who they serve. If you don't like it do business elsewhere. Let economics run the show, lose enough customers, go out of business. If it turns out it doesn't run em out of business then maybe there was enough of that select clientele to survive.



Yes there is, public businesses are to be open to the public, if they want to discriminate they have to become a private club and deny memberships. This was done in order to prevent discrimination against X, Y, or Z. Rather than always add to the list and make people memorize a list of protected classes that could be changed as a political tool it was made simple. Either serve everyone, or make yourself a private establishment.

so is there a private membership to join that only serves conservative thinking people?? and if there was, would they still have to advertisement that they were membership only?

Either he could "Feel the Bern" walking home. I would have done the same thing the driver did, I don't see a problem with it.


Like I care.

He wasn't called for his political opinion - - his business is towing, not preaching.

I suppose you agree that it was OK to toss my physically disabled mom and her three kids (under 8) out of a restaurant because another customer complained that it made them uncomfortable.


You can't force someone to do business


So then you agree.

OK to kick physically disabled women out of restaurant because of "ICK" factor.


Sure you can; you can kick a physically disabled women out of restaurant if they are warring a "White Power!" tee shirt.

You can kick a physically disabled women out of restaurant if they are warring a “Sanders for present” Tee shirt.

You cannot kick a physically disabled women out of a restaurant for being physically disabled.

Treating the physically disabled different than you would treat anyone else is discriminatory and that goes for putting them on a pedestal. I am disabled and I am an advocate for the disabled; one of the most erk some things you can do to the disabled is make everything about their disability … the driver refused his service because of her political leanings not her disability – that is the merit on which he should be judged anything else is not help full and insensitive to the disabled.

Now to that end a "White Power!" tee shirt and a “Sanders for present” Tee shirt are clearly two different things in my opinion; but at the end of the day how do you pick an choose what is and what is not acceptable without letting your own personal bias dictate the outcome.

Apparently Ken Shupe the tow truck driver and Trump supporter is experiencing some serious blow back.

www.rawstory.com...

It's this kind of Right wing Christian extremism that will cause moderates that might have gone for Trump to change their minds and vote for a democrat.


Donald has already alienated all the minorities and women; with out a huuuge contingent of moderates on his side it's ......adios Mr. Trump.

He simply can't win with just conservatives.....ask Palin/McCain and Mitt. Think about it, and try not to let your ideology get in the way of your common sense.

You reap what you sow!

I bet there are clubs or businesses that do..not many mind you, and Im sure "if" they advertised it would be members only. It would be a business that is not interested in making much money. To be clear as far as I'm concerned the tow truck driver acted shamefully and went against the teaching's of his good book as well as what it means to be in a public business.

When a problem arises between two people (lets say a fight), while both were wrong, it is typically the one that threw the first punch that is considered at fault. In this case, each person did something that ticked off the other person...right or wrong. The driver was ticked off that the tow truck driver refused to help. The two truck driver was ticked off about the bumper sticker. Who threw the first punch? The driver with the bumper sticker.


If you think a bumper sticker is the first punch in a fight, then cops are really going to be having some road rage problems to deal with in the next few months!

I wonder how this tow truck driver reacts to customers with a "COEXIST" bumper sticker?

No problem like any respectable person I will work until I draw my last breath. I have valued skills I don't need handouts.

Well, that's quite ironic. Hope you never need a tow truck driven by a Muslim, then! Or a bus! Or a cab (there are lots of them driving cabs).

You could always walk, though. So - does your zealous opinion work both ways - if you were stranded, and a Muslim, or a Mexican or a flamboyant Gay man or "Butch" Lesbian was driving the tow truck, would you refuse the service? You know - having done unto others what you would like to have done to you?

No doubt one day that will happen. Think hard about it. Suppose the next time that tow-truck driver needs stitches that the woman he left on the side of the road is an ER nurse who could now sew up his gaping, bleeding wound when he has a wreck -- if only she'd gotten to her shift at the EMT station in time.

Stupid.

Shortsighted and stupid.

Do you personally think its OK to throw a disabled woman out because her disability makes you feel uncomfortable.

Well he didn't break any laws. So his choice I guess. It really doesn't surprise me he turned down the business over such a mundane reason. But, most know a good majority of Trump supporters aren't the brightest crayons in the box either.

I don't know any real men that would leave a disabled woman on the side of the road stranded though. Sounds like his inner child mentality came out in this encounter.

Oh jeez..this clown now says "god' told him to ditch the car..this guy should be checked into the local rubber room, at this point he has no business operating a heavy vehicle.

This quote is from olaru 12's rawstory link

“Something came over me, I think the Lord came to me, and He just said, ‘Get in the truck and leave,'”

You cannot kick a physically disabled women out of a restaurant for being physically disabled.


And there it is, even though you tried to bury it in other sentences.

YOU state its OK for you to throw a disabled woman out just because physically disabled make you uncomfortable.


You seem to have a reading completion problem:

Below is a list of when you can and cannot kick a disabled person out of your restaurant.

You can kick a physically disabled women out of restaurant if they are warring a "White Power!" tee shirt.

You can kick a physically disabled women out of restaurant if they are warring a “Sanders for present” Tee shirt.
