Is it fair to refuse a person service because of their job?

From Twitter

White House Press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders was recently refused service at the Red Hen restaurant in Virginia.

Sanders was asked to leave, and Stephanie Wilkinson, the owner of the establishment, later cited the draconian policies of the Trump administration as the basis for Sanders being asked to exit the building.

From People Magazine

“I explained that the restaurant has certain standards that I feel it has to uphold, such as honesty, and compassion, and cooperation.”

“I said, ‘I’d like to ask you to leave.’ ”

After the flap, Sanders took to Twitter to announce the situation to the planet, and cause yet another distraction in regards to more meaningful political discourse.

Was this fair?

Both sides have an argument.

While Stephanie Wilkinson certainly has the right to refuse service to anyone, it’s a slippery slope to do so based on one’s race, job, or political views.

This is America, what took place at that restaurant is un-American, regardless of the garbage Sanders spews on a weekly basis.

Does the owner flag everyone with an annoying occupation that comes into her restaurant?

Only way to be sure is to start having customers fill out applications, if there is a true standard in that building, it needs to apply to everyone.
