Shopping around for a baker until you find one that politely declines because of their personal faith, then suing them, is pretty jerky.

Yeah. MLK Jr. was pretty jerky.

The situation you describe is a personal upclose and personal interaction.

Uber as a corp has dipped it's toe into curtailing free speech by punishing a person who they disagree with. This is indeed very dangerous ground they are standing on.

Not everyone can recognize this.



Oh my god, no they are not. How can you not see that? If she had said that to one driver, she could be banned. Instead, she said that to all of the drivers.

Free speech doesn't mean that businesses have to cater to jerks who publicly disparage them! Are you guys seriously not understanding this?

Do you support a company refusing service to a person who insults their employees or not?

The person just wanted a cab ride.

Now that person is banned because of thought.

That person is banned because she specifically targeted Uber and insulted a large portion of their employees.

If I Tweeted that the owner of a local diner's wife is a whore, should I be surprised if they have a picture of me behind the counter saying "do not serve" the next time I go in?

Uber should be given a pass, who would want to service this right-wing blow up doll.

So you are against Uber's decision? Besides she was waiting for a non-Muslim driver and got late because of it. That is like waiting for a non-Black driver.

Go right ahead and punish unpopular thought.

If you are for this, then you must be for punishing people who think differently.

Basically discriminating against people who don't think like you.

That person is banned because of their abusive nature towards Uber's employees.

Not thought.

You must have brought your own yoga mat, huh?

Speaking of which, you never addressed my response to you.

I wonder why.

I can't recall but for some reason I thought you support businesses' right to refuse service to anyone based on religious beliefs?

Go right ahead and punish unpopular thought.



So if it's unpopular, it should be an exception to the rule? I don't understand your logic here. If I insult a business with a popular opinion, you'd support their banning me but, if I insult a business with an unpopular opinion, you wouldn't support the business banning me?

I'm just trying to understand you.

Yep, and I was told how terrible and wrong I was.

By the same people who now think it's wonderful.

Public Accommodation.

That was beaten into me by everyone over the cake business. I was told that businesses HAVE to serve the public by the same people who are saying that businesses have the right to refuse service.

So you agree with the right of business owners to refuse service based on thoughts they find "unpopular"?

Well, I guess you were right in your first post.

We will enjoy the hypocrisy in this thread.
