A Nebraska coffee house has come under fire for throwing out a long-time customer just because a restaurant employee suddenly discovered the customer is a conservative.
Lincoln, Nebraska, resident Marilyn Synek has been a long-time customer of the city’s Cultiva Espresso & Crepes coffee house. But on Wednesday her loyal business was rewarded with being kicked out of the place, Fox News reported.
On Wednesday, Synek says that she was shocked when the manager of the shop demanded that she leave.
“Marilyn Synek!” the employee allegedly shouted. “I didn’t recognize you until now, but I just realized who you are, what you stand for, and the work you do. You are fucking bigoted trash, and we do not want you in our restaurant.”
Indeed, Synek works for the conservative Nebraska Family Alliance, and the coffee house employee apparently had just discovered the fact.
The incensed coffee house employee reportedly ranted on saying, “Over 80 percent of the people who work here are queer. You are not fucking wanted in our restaurant, so get out and don’t come back! If you do try to come back, we will all refuse any service to you.”
Synek says that she never once went to the coffee house to espouse or proselytize about her convictions. She just went because she liked to eat there.
After word got around town of what the restaurant employee did, the owners of the place ended up apologizing.
The owners claim they are “proud liberals” but they don’t agree with what the employee did.
“We welcome everyone into our shop and do not condone the action of any employee that makes anyone feel unwelcome,” co-owner Jason Anderson told the media. “Making sure people feel welcome is our goal.”
The employee was fired. But, like all arrogant, hate-filled liberals, she is unrepentant.
“Nebraskans like myself do lose our jobs, and sometimes our living arrangements, because of who we are, and people like the Nebraska Family Alliance are why,” the employee said without offering any proof at all of her claims.
