A Seattle bar refused service to a Republican group after the confirmation of Brett Kavanaugh last week.
Once again, we see that liberals feel no compunctions about destroying our national comity by waging attacks on people in private life merely because they don’t like their politics.
According to KTTH:
The University of Washington College Republicans hoped to celebrate the confirmation of Justice Brett Kavanaugh by enjoying beers at Shultzy’s Bar and Grill this past Saturday. But their plans were stalled after the bar asked them to find another venue “due to the political nature” of their get-together.
The UWCR’s called the informal gathering “Beers 4 Brett”, a reference after Kavanaugh’s famous “I liked beer” line from the confirmation hearings.
“Let’s celebrate our newest Supreme Court Justice, and the failure of the lies and false claims against him!” the Facebook invite read.
Soon after the posting, some Progressive activists contacted the bar to complain. Chevy Swanson, president of the UWCR’s knew it would mean trouble for them.
In response, Shultzy’s Bar and Grill posted on Facebook: “Shultzy’s is a sports-themed bar & grill that welcomes everyone. We do not promote or endorse any one religious or political viewpoint. As such, due to the political nature of your planned event, we request that you find another venue to celebrate.”
In other words, liberal patrons whining about losing the Kavanaugh fight were perfectly welcome to drink at Shultzy’s, but no Republicans were.
“I thought that the left-wing activists who took notice of our event had lied to the restaurant about the nature of our event,” Swanson said. “It seemed incredibly odd to deny service for a quiet gathering of college republicans and guests.”
Swanson also noted that they considered suing the bar over the denial of service and told them so. Eventually the bar relented and served them.
“It’s shown that it’s clear that the tension against conservatives around here has hit a boiling point where even the smallest public showing of support of conservative ideas is a point of contention and that there is no reason to roll over to hostility like that,” Swanson said.
