Restaurant That Kicked Out Sarah Sanders Explains Those Are Just The Rules, Quotes Bible

The Red Hen says they will not apologize as they did nothing wrong.

I simply told Ms. Sanders that I was sorry but we have a strict no asshole-enabling policy at this location,” said the owner of the Red Hen restaurant in Lexington, Virginia, who was forced to show the White House press secretary the door on Friday because:

“Those are the rules. I make them, and I enforce them, and when questioned I distance myself from them. As per the current American model.”

The incident appears to have been precipitated by Sanders’ insistence on appearing in public, after lying unabatedly for the past eleven months while assisting Donald Trump in his poorly-planned, but brutally effective, dismantlement of the American will to be better. 

“The administration of this restaurant has made it clear that we will not serve those responsible for inhumane practices in this country,” the proprietor of the Red Hen read in a prepared statement, warning beforehand that she would be taking no questions on the matter afterwards.  

“And, it is important to note, this is not our problem. This policy is the direct result of loopholes left in place by the Bob Evans that previously occupied this location. Quite frankly our hands are tied.”

Over the shouted questions of the gathered reporters, the owner then produced a Bible, pulled the scripture’s ribbon to open the good book to a pre-selected passage, and then cleared her voice and said:

“And lo, though people may make their peace with being horrible, and unlike anything decent, thou shalt be under no obligation to serve them breadsticks, or refills, or even let them cross the threshold of thine moderately-priced but amply-portioned establishment. And thou shalt tell Sarah also that her dad needs to calm the heck down, and that her boss is being an ass in all senses of the word. And then thou shalt remind everyone that the message of Jesus was fundamentally love. And then thou shalt vote with greater acumen in future. Ahmen.”

The restauranteur then closed the book, saying she felt that it pretty much spoke for itself.

                The newspapers that I owned were not boating publications, and my point was that I neither edit nor criticize because you have a left wing bias. You missed that point. My point was and is, that you have taken an utterly disgusting situation and made fun of it. Sarah Sanders did not deserve this abuse, as much as you might seem to think so. Was Josh Earnest ever thrown out of a restaurant? No, but he bragged about the fact that he lied to reporters all the time, that they were 27 and too stupid to know what he was talking about. Do you see him get that level of harassment? No you did not. The double standard exhibited by the liberals is stunning. And it’s hypocritical as well, another trait that liberal seem not to see in themselves.
                I’m not suggesting you alter course, it’s your publication…i’m just pointing out you came a bit too close to a shoal that you didn’t see here.

                It’s “the president’s only” didn’t apply to Obama as the GOP raised a Supreme Court challenge to his plan to defer deportations of millions. The SCOTUS went even further by asking, in an unusual step, whether Obama had not adequately enforced America’s laws.

                    As for “don’t know what they’re talking about”, you need to turn that around on yourself more often.
                    For example, you have a serious jones about Antifa and what you wrongly perceive as tacit support or deliberate denial of their actions by the left-leaning which I’ve already demonstrated more than once and which you ignored and deflected.

                    And there was no secret knowledge or deep searching required; it was all on the 1st page of results on Google and from the most mainstream sites. Given your claim of wide & deep bipartisan reading I can’t imagine how you could not be aware and any reasoned speculation on my part is sure to induce a serious bout of pruritus in such a sensitive…..soul.

                    I imagine that saying your comment about “antifa were causing trouble again out in western US just a week or two ago, battling people and violating their rights” to be absurdly disingenuous would offer no balm.

                    Portland has a long history of which even “people with intelligence and knowledge like me” – as you put it – may not be aware, a notable event being the murder of Mulugeta Seraw by members of the white racist groups East Side White Pride and White Aryan Resistance which WAR leader Tom Metzger called “a civic duty” which give birth to SHARP (Skinheads Against Racial Prejudice)

      A friend pointed out to me that what’s been happening is a clash between Antifa and rightwing groups like Patriot Prayer and has been ongoing for OVER A YEAR.

      Well I found it in my usual media sources once it was brought to my attention so what exactly are you on about?
      On second thought, I’m not sure I need or want to know.

      More tripe from you that I’ve already addressed in another comment but I will reiterate that no less a person that Nancy Pelosi has called for them to be prosecuted and the WaPo HEADLINE about the Berkeley violence specifically stated that “antifa members attack *PEACEFUL* right-wing demonstrators”.

    Naturally? I can’t check every report but Antifa does get covered outside of Fox News.
    NBC News covered their clashes with Patriot Prayer, Rolling Stone covered the bike-lock attack and that Eric Clanton is facing trial, Nancy Pelosi wants them prosecuted, the Washington Post, in Aug 2017, called them the moral equivalent of neo-Nazis, the Atlantic opined they may be making authoritarianism worse,

    “the right has the old rate. We don’t want them, we don’t consider them a part of the conservative movement, but unfortunately, there are they are”
    Not clear what you mean by the “old rate” but I have to wonder if your President shares your views.
    After all Trump endorsed Roy Moore and the good people of Alabama nearly chose him as Sessions’ successor – Doug Jones eked out a 1.5% win over Trump’s very fine person.

          • Since you mentioned Derby Shire, I looked him up. He was fired in 2012, and here is the managing editor is a reason, as quoted in politico:

            “[Derbyshire’s] latest provocation, in a webzine, lurches from the politically incorrect to the nasty and indefensible,” National Review Editor Rich Lowry wrote in a statement posted late Saturday night. “We never would have published it, but the main reason that people noticed it is that it is by a National Review writer. Derb is effectively using our name to get more oxygen for views with which we’d never associate ourselves otherwise. So there has to be a parting of the ways.”

            I think your opinion of national review is extremely biased, and that you actually need to reconsider it. Clearly, national review views what Derbyshire wrote much as anyone else did and wanted nothing to do with it. That alone tells me it’s a far better source than you give it credit for.

              As far as National Review, they’re trying to rewrite history. Many of their seminal pundits would have felt quite at home in Trumpistan and frankly helped set the foundation stones.

              Some of their denunciations remind me of a recent statement by a German politician who dismissed the Nazi era as “a mere speck of bird poop”. At least he did say Germans have to take responsibility for it which is a damn sight more than the South has ever been willing to do and the modern GOP has been happy to overlook.

              Unlike every other major media, Fox has not had to fire, demote, or cause to resign, individuals who have falsely reported the news. That gives them a substantial leg up in credibility in anybody’s book if they’re paying any serious attention.

                In order for that to be a reasonable assumption, you would have to demonstrate that all the networks adhere to the same standards and rules.
                If several have higher standards and are strict about enforcement, they would be rated lower by your standards that one that had lower standards and lax enforcement.

                • it is not an assumption, it is a fact. MSNBC, CNN, New York Times and the Washington Post are just four of the left of center MSM that have had to deal with firing, demotions, or forced resignations of journalists and editors because of fake news. Each of them has issued retractions of what we’re considered at the time to be major stories. In the case of the New York Times front page Russian article of February 14, 2017 (the one they risibly got a major award for), no less than former FBI director Comey indicated that it was almost entirely wrong. And yet, it was that article in which the entire Russian collusion narrative has been built.

                  Now then, give me one single comparable individual or circumstance at Fox News. And note please, I am talking news, not the opinion talking heads.
