Liberal Tolerance: Red Hen restaurant kicks out White House press secretary Sarah Sanders

Sarah Huckabee Sanders, White House press secretary and daughter of former Arkansas governor Republican Mike Huckabee, was thrown out of a Virginia restaurant Friday night (June 23) in an incident that sparked a social media storm. The reason? Sanders works for President Donald Trump.

An Associated Press report, first picked up by the Christian Broadcasting Network, and subsequently by other media, said Sanders was ordered out of The Red Hen Restaurant in Lexington, Virginia, by the owner Stephanie Wilkinson, even as the chef was cooking Sanders’ dinner. Sanders said the event said far more about the owner of the restaurant than it did about her.

In a tweet from her official account, Sanders said, “I always do my best to treat people, including those I disagree with, respectfully and will continue to do so.”  The tweet generated more than 22,000 replies in about an hour. The ensuing furor pitted both supporters and detractors of Sanders. Her father, former Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee, even joined the conversation. “Bigotry.” He tweeted. “On the menu at Red Hen Restaurant in Lexington VA. Or you can ask for the ‘Hate Plate.’ And appetizers are ‘small plates for small minds.”’

The incident mirrors an earlier incident in the week when Secretary of Homeland Security Kirstjen Nielsen cut short a working dinner in a Mexican restaurant after protesters shouted, “Shame!” until she left.

In the ensuing social media dialogues, people from all across the country began to take sides. Some wanted to organize protests outside Red Hen restaurant, while others championed owner Wilkinson as a hero.

On Yelp, a Los Angeles-based restaurant reviewer chimed in, “Don’t eat here if you’re a Republican, wearing a MAGA hat, or are a patriot.”

Other Yelp commenters, however, supported the restaurant owner’s action. A responder from Commerce City, Colorado wrote, “Bonus: this place is run by management who stuck up for their beliefs and who are true Americans. THANK YOU!!!!”

Red Hen was trending toward the top of Twitter — 75,000 mentions within a couple hours of the first news stories.

In an interview with the Washington Post, Wilkinson explained her reasons for why she asked Sanders and her companions to leave.

“Several Red Hen employees were gay,” she said. “They knew Sanders had defended Trump’s desire to bar transgender people from the military. This month, they had all watched her evade questions and defend a Trump policy that caused migrant children to be separated from their parents.” Wilkinson said that the Sanders party already had been seated and their orders taken when she was informed by telephone who they were. It took her several minutes to drive from her home to the restaurant. She conferred with her employees.

“Tell me what you want me to do. I can ask her to leave,” Wilkinson told her staff. “They said yes.” Wilkerson then walked up to Sanders’ chair.

“I’m the owner,” she said. “I’d like you to come out to the patio with me for a word.”

She told Sanders about her feelings vis-sà-vis the president and recent events.

“I explained that the restaurant has certain standards that I feel it has to uphold, such as honesty, and compassion, and cooperation. I’d like to ask you to leave.”

She said that Sanders’ response was immediate: “That’s fine. I’ll go.”

As of Saturday afternoon, media personnel from broadcast stations and newspapers were camping out on the street next to the Red Hen. Wilkinson, however, remained steadfast in her belief that she was justified in throwing out the White House press secretary because she works for President Trump. She told the Washington Post, “Whatever happens, we will soldier on. Absolutely, yes, I would have done the same thing again.”

-Grif

It must be noted that what the jackals of the Mainstream Media call “separation of families” is actually the Trump administration enacting a measure that flowed from the  Clinton-era Flores vs. Reno Supreme Court decision allowing unaccompanied illegal border-crossing minors be held “in the least restrictive setting appropriate to the minor’s age and special needs.”

Below is a pic of Red Hen owner  and her partner, Duncan Richter, wearing pink pussy hats (h/t FOTM‘s MCA).


According to TruthFinder, Wilkinson and Richter own and co-habit a home in Lexington, VA:

  • Stephanie Wilkinson, 55, has a Ph.D. in European and American Religious History from the University of Virginia. Her LinkedIn profile here.
  • Duncan Richter, 51, is a philosophy professor at Virginia Military Institute in Roanoke, VA. His LinkedIn profile here.

So much for higher education . . . .

Their lofty degrees evidently taught them nothing about classical or original liberalism — the political ideology that believes in the primacy of individual liberty; that while government is necessary to protect individuals from being harmed by others, government itself can pose a threat to liberty; and that no one or group has a monopoly on truth, and so we must tolerate our differences of opinion in the market place of ideas.

In a tweet, Congressman Ben Cline (R-VA) said Wilkinson is a cousin of snake-tongue Meryl Streep:

On behalf of my hometown of Lexington, I want to apologize for the rudeness of one liberal New York transplant (who also happens to be Meryl Streep’s cousin). We hope you will come back and enjoy our area’s true southern hospitality.

Google is purposely misleading in their search results. When I searched for “ICE rescues immigrants” for my “Cynthia Nixon calls ICE a terrorist organization” post, I found nothing but ICE ripping children apart at detention centers on the first 4 pages. I had to use DuckDuckGo for any real results in ICE rescuing immigrants from terrible conditions.
I have no doubt that Google is tweaking search results to fit an agenda.

This idiotic, TDS infected woman has made a fatal error in regard to her restaurant. She did not have to do what she did on Friday night. If she had simply kept her hateful liberal mouth shut, and allowed Sarah and her friends to finish eating and leave, there would have been no problem. But no, liberals believe it is their right to tell everyone else how to live. They are not happy unless they are trouncing on other people’s rights. Her restaurant’s days are numbered. That’s a mathematical certainty. Sayonara dummies!

This was completely uncalled for and unforgivable. She should move to Red China immediately. Personally I wouldn’t want to talk to her or her hubby about anything, but people don’t generally go to a restaurant to make a political statement. They go there to eat. Then this haughty, ego-maniacal apparatchik throws a cabinet member out of her restaurant to demonstrate that she doesn’t believe in democracy?
There should be candlelight vigils down there with people silently holding signs that say “Shame”. She needs to go to China, or Hollywood.

Thanks for posting this tweet. It’s good to know others in Lexington see through Wilkinson. As the tweet points out, Wilkinson is the Executive Director of Main Street, Lexington, a volunteer organization that seeks to “economically revitalize” the area.
It now appears a crucial step in this “revitalization” would be for Wilkinson to resign or to “be asked to leave” this post.
In addition, Wilkinson is the co-owner of a crappy yarn store in Lexington, called House Mountain Yarn Company; a Yelp reviewer suggest The Quiltery in Fairfield, VA is a better choice.

Interesting business decision by Ms. Wilkinson. She effectively shut out 60% of the population. Should just place a sign in plain view that states ” we will selectively admit you to our eatery. Please inquire inside to determine if you qualify.” Those on the left truly believe they are right on everything. If you do not agree “tough”. Suck it up and move on. Most of the 60% have said we’re done “sucking it up” and so stated at the last election. Stand by, there will be more to say later this year where it is appropriate to do so.

The Huckabees may not be the strongest Ronald Reagan conservatives around, but they are good people, philosophically and ideologically honest and consistent.

It’s nice to know that there’s at least one restaurant maintaining a barbarian-free dining room.

Gosh, “Mortimer Snerd” of Ferndale, Michigan. Aren’t you just the very epitome of “liberal” tolerance.

Wasn’t it “not okay” for restaurants to refuse to refuse to serve minority folks well into the 1970s? So that’s no longer acceptable, but it’s fine to refuse to serve Sarah Sanders? Aren’t both actions based on the owners’ prejudices? What am I missing here?

Psssttt: “Liberal Tolerance” is an oxymoron.

That’s an interesting question. I don’t know that conservatives (or Trump voters) are in a minority. They may be, I don’t know. Either way, I thought the discrimination laws pertained to race, sex, creed, etc.. So, isn’t a political choice a “creed” of sorts? If you were an employer and said “I’m sorry, but I can’t hire you. You’re a Republican”. Isn’t that cause for a lawsuit? On the other hand businesses have a right to refuse service. If may be that someone ejected from a business for no other reason than their beliefs would have grounds for a lawsuit… Read more »

That’s truly sad. Cheesy little cowards. Harming a poor innocent little animal because of their insanity. That’s a Muslim trick.

Here’s a little more on this. It seems she actually followed Sanders and her party across the street to another restaurant and harassed her there. Then she organized a protest of THAT restaurant.

Outright hateful & rude of Wilkinson… And God certainly is NOT on the side of hate speech, Maxine Waters.. Nor is God on the side of someone stirring up crowds to cause trouble ever!

So….bottom line—-after all the “to do” in this post—–NO retail/service establishment in Lexington, VA is safe for at least half of this country’s inhabitants to patronize? Seems so to me….and pretty sure it will occur to others…..Hope Lexington at large reaps the “benefits” of this one small business-owner’s legacy of “charm” and diplomacy…….

I’m not sure, as a practical matter, just how all this could play out. That area is very built up. There are hundreds of thousands of patrons. I used to go there several times a year.
Unless someone (or group) were stalking somebody, I don’t know how anyone would know who anyone was. All of these little towns in Northern Virginia and in Maryland run together. There are restaurants everywhere.
I don’t know the local law on this but it seems they must be stalking them. I don’t think that’s legal.

Please show your not anti American by apologising and ending hatred acceptance against Republicans. Ethically it is wrong to do what was done to Sarah. Please correct it.
