Virtuoso80: Meh, if a restaurant want's to deliberately limit it's customer base, I say let them. Maybe we need laws for special circumstances (Ex. You have to let someone use your phone in case of an emergency), but otherwise I'm OK with racist business owners running racist businesses, just don't expect me to use their services.


I kinda agree with this; free-market public shaming should be effective usually, but...

El_Perro: The problem with that is that, once you open the door to discrimination in public accomodations, there is a risk of whole areas being off-limits to whatever class is being discriminated against. The Civil Rights Act didn't happen in a vacuum.


...there is of course historical precedent for why this can be bad.

Dragonflew: Knew this was a typical republican christian before even clicking. Useless piece of shiat.


Well it was kinda obvious.

Dow Jones and the Temple of Doom: I also like how the dude in the wheelchair was fine with the guy's views until he got discriminated against.


LOL

darwinpolice: FlashHarry: he doesn't like "f*ggots, n*ggers, cripples and democrats." i'm guessing his CPAC invitation is on its way.

what a vile, subhuman piece of shiat. i really hope he dies a slow death from ass cancer.

fark that.  I hope people stop patronizing his restaurant, he is forced to close it down, goes fully broke, and ends up on welfare.


Give this like two weeks to gain momentum. The Intenet Chilrens brigade, a/k/a 4Chan will lay into said shiatheap with some major annoyance. Deliveries, etc.

something.

Oklahoma is the only State to have its Capital stolen and moved in the middle of the night from Guthrie to Oklahoma City. Also Guthrie has an original Carnegie Library and the Largest Masonic Temple in the World. Watonga, OK has more rattle snakes than people.

Boise City, Oklahoma was the only city in the United States to be bombed in WWII. On Monday night, July 5, 1943, at 12:30 a.m., a B-17 Bomber based at Dalhart Army Air Base, Texas, dropped six practice bombs on the sleeping town, mistaking the city lights as target lights.

sendtodave: Arumat: WTFDYW: While this guy is a USDA Grade 'AA' asshole, he is the sole proprietor of the joint and has the right to refuse service to anyone for any reason. However, if he remodels the joint, he'll have to damn sure make sure he's up to code with ADA compliance whether he allows disabled people in or not.

You clearly don't understand the idea of a "protected class".  There's a lot of reasons that don't legally fit in "any reason", and this guy seems to have hit damn near all of them.

To be fair, "protected classes" are a pretty recent legal fiction.  Just 50 years old, give or take.


Yeah, right - you run with that.

So you're the self appointed "fix other people's problems" guy eh?


Well people like you are a bit workshy, somebody has to do the job.

Good to know your house is 100% squared away.

This gentleman is free to take umbrage at my poorly manicured lawn if he likes. Won't change what he's up to.

Because there can be no middle ground. It's all or nothing, right? No problem should ever be fixed, because someone else already has a problem.

Jesus, you are a waste of skin.

I am thinking the whole state needs to be bombed.  72 hours notice, you have to score a triple digit IQ to leave the state and be spared.

And are the people saying that all Christian white males over the age of 60?

/or was it because we had a top marginal tax rate of 90% back then?
 
2014-02-07 02:51:13 PM  
Yeah, I read this earlier and thought about submitting it. I just couldn't think of an appropriate headline for this asshole.

Talk about a douche, and his restaurant is a total shiathole...

Especially with the cat roaming free in the kitchen there.

So, your hate for him is somehow more acceptable than his hate for others?

I'm sure no one was ever paid under the table and all their tax filings have been legit. No need to audit them.

Magorn: Apparently he's not up on recent developments in the law, like say the public accomodation clause of the Civil Rights Act of 1964.   And I can just see him trying to claim he's not REALLy a racist in court and the opposing attorney producing "The restaurant's official t-shirt"  "{which} makes it clear that a "f*ggot" isn't welcome in James's establishment. It features that word, the N-word, and threatens violence against Muslims, Democrats, and members of many minority groups. "


 I almost want to see that shirt now, and a picture of someone who thinks wearing it would be a good idea


Right now it appears that the law they can get him with would be Title III of the Americans with Disabilities Act:

Matt Gard claims that the owner of Gary's Chicaros restaurant, Gary James, banned him from the restaurant because of his wheelchair.
 
2014-02-07 02:51:44 PM  
What an insufferable d*ckbag. I don't wish bad things on anyone, but maybe he will lose the ability to walk and have to collect disability.

The horror!!

Not all Okies are arseholes, I swear. Sadly, there are people here who will applaud him and he may very well see an increase in business. Fark, if she could get away with it, the Governor might show up.

YouWinAgainGravity: but i thought we didn't need any kind of regulations or civil rights laws because the free market would have driven people like this out of business


I demand the right to patronize this guy's business! How dare he stop me from giving him money even though he hate me.

DROxINxTHExWIND: Theaetetus: DROxINxTHExWIND: You know, I think I like this guy. At least he's not the type of pussy to make racist comments anonymously and then backtrack when he gets called on it.

As opposed to making sexist comments anonymously?

[img.fark.net image 243x207]


Yeah, there's no way that negatively referring to a human being as a piece of female anatomy, intimating that to be such a piece of anatomy is to be weak or inadequate could be considered sexist!
 
2014-02-07 02:52:18 PM  
Look at all this uproar...

Guys... he's cashing in on the Chic-fil-a/Duck Dynasty marketing scheme. Make a public spectacle spouting some insanely bigoted crap, cry "Freedom! (of speech)" and watch millions upon millions flock to your business "to show their support of Freedom(TM)".
 
2014-02-07 02:52:21 PM  
Nor does he cotton to men wearing hats indoors or  men with all kinds of metal in their face, whatever that means.

And what in sam hill is a chicaro?

I wonder how that election he ran in turned out.

trickymoo: Ok, I'll bite....

As this is Oklahoma we're talking about, I'm not surprised by the "freaks, 'f*****s, and welfare recipients"... but the disabled? That's ... really.... low.


He's apparently lumping them in with welfare recipients (if drawing disability checks).

2014-02-07 02:54:32 PM  
Who cares if this guy is a racist asshole?  Why would people want to eat at his restaurant if he's racist, anyway?  Seems like people are missing the point.  If you force this guy to allow everyone into his business, do you think he'll suddenly not be racist?  Will unicorns and butterflies start flying out of his ass?  The best way to hurt this guy is don't patronize his business in the first place.
 
2014-02-07 02:54:53 PM  
There is a chain in Columbia, SC called Miyo's that I won't eat at after hearing numerous reports of the owner being a biatch to certain peoples.

A friend of my wife's said she was shooed out of the restaurant for asking about allergens- allegedly she was told "people with allergies should not eat out and arnt welcome at her restaurant."

Shame. They have quite nice food.

Then there is Maurice's BBQ where the owner used to distribute kkk pamphlets.

Only straight white christian males who remember leave it to beaver and not what was actually going on at the time. Everyone else pretty much got shafted... Which explains why regressives want to "go back"...

Good point... while all of us far-off types are thumbing our noses and wishing him all manner of papercuts and lost business, the yokels will circle the wagons around him knowing that their way of life is under attack and he is their beacon.

There are bigger fish to fry that some asshole in Enid, Oklahoma.

teenytinycornteeth: So, in your eyes, one has to be absolutely perfect before helping to solve the problems of others?


This guy is beyond "help".

El_Perro: So we shouldn't enforce laws when they're broken by "an asshole in Enid Oklahoma that you and I never knew existed before today."?


FWIW, it's bullshiat to make this guy do something on his private property that he obviously doesn't want to do.

And before all you cool kids get your knickers in a twist over that look at it like this. Where you want to spend other peoples resources to make this asshole change, I see opportunity. Hell, build next to him and advertise to those that he would turn away! What a great marketing campaign AND you might even hurt his business. It's win all the way around!

No-name establishment in one of the southern plains most progressive cities outs itself on regional television as a front for hate.  Knowing the differences between Portland and OKC in terms of diversity and acceptance, I'm thinking this place will close faster than that bakery in Gresham that wouldn't make a wedding cake for a same-sex couple.

Congratulations, guy, hope you saved for retirement.  Good luck with the ADA lawsuit.

Of course, it's guys like him who gripe the most about the imaginary discrimination i.e. The war on Christians/Christmas/Rednecks etc. SOS, it's the entire essence of the far right: a free pass to act any way they choose,  while crying lil' biatches if someone sings a song all un-'murican.  Someone needs to give this guy a Cleveland Steamer, post haste.
