When the owner of the Red Hen of Lexington decided to drive to her establishment and tell Sarah Huckabee Sanders and her party to get out, she really did us a favor.
As I’ve said about gay people who can’t get a baker or photographer to work for their wedding, why would you want to do business with them?
Go somewhere else.
There’s really no reason to waste your money patronizing an establishment that doesn’t like or approve of you.
The real kick in the pants is as much as the Left hates Chick-fil-A, they will serve anyone. Gay, Democrat, Hillary voter — everyone receives service with a smile.
The Red Hen of Lexington? Not so much.
But remember, they’re the “tolerant” ones.
Of course there is a silver lining for the owner of the Red Hen.
Given the coast-to-coast coverage of this incident, she doesn’t have to pay for signs letting potential patrons know she hates them.
And she won’t have to invest in training her waiters on how to interrogate customers to make sure their political affiliations do not offend the staff.
“Good evening. Welcome to the Red Hen of Lexington. I’m your waiter Seth. Now, before I take your drink order, could you all tell me who you voted for in 2016?”
Honestly, it’s hard enough to get waitstaff to remember the day’s specials. Who needs the added aggravation of having to memorize questions in order to weed out undesirable Trump voters?
But the Red Hen also did a huge favor for Sarah Sanders.
Let’s be frank. If her snowflake staff hadn’t called the owner, I’m guessing the odds are someone would have spit in her food.
Another benefit, of course, is now no Christian baker will have to worry about saying, “I’m sorry. But for moral reasons, I can’t bake your gay wedding cake. And, if you come here again, I’ll say the same thing.”
Because apparently that works now!
And just so we’re clear. I’m not advocating flooding the Red Hen with MAGA folks who make asses of themselves.
Though I do think it would be fun to book every table in the place, show up, act completely respectful. Then, on cue, every single person pulls out a MAGA hat and puts it on.
That would be a hoot!
No shouting or screaming; no acting like assholes. All you have to do is sit politely, order your food while tying up the tables for a couple hours.
But whatever you do, don’t eat anything. Because I’m guessing all the entrees will be three parts food and six parts sputum.
Now, I suppose you could cap off the evening by sending the food back uneaten and refusing to pay.
But I’m not advocating for that. Nope. Not at all.
And of course there’s the added bonus of exposing – once again – the utter contemptible hypocrisy of the Left.
An opportunity that is hardly rare, to be sure.
They are super-duper angry that Trump supporters are using the Left’s own tactics against the Red Hen.
Apparently they believe they’re the only ones who can flood Yelp with bad reviews, or descend on the website until it crashes. They’re the only ones allowed to leave angry comments on a company Facebook page or tie up the business number so no customers can get through.
As Kurt Schlichter always says, the Left is going to hate the new rules when those rules get used on them.
If a restaurant had asked an Obama staffer to leave it would be crawling with IRS auditors the next day

Democrats haven’t kicked this many people out of restaurants since the 1950s

The truth is, this was a bad idea on the part of the owner of the Red Hen in Lexington.
And equally bad is her decision to repeat her story ad nauseum to every reporter and news outlet that tracks her down.
She’s not a celebrity. So the “No publicity is bad publicity” rule does not apply to her.
In a customer-service business – especially the food service industry — bad publicity can shutter your doors.
So while the Red Hen did us a favor letting us know that we’re not welcome, it didn’t do itself any favors at all.
Now that the Red Hen has made a business decision to serve only leftists, I feel bad for the waitstaff. Most libs are shitty tippers. https://t.co/BRZGJQhIpG
