    Some of Trump’s followers do seem to be cult like, so it seems reasonable.

    So if you guys could create a protected class of your own, what would it be called and what would it be about?

    Best one gets their own protected class!

    The Oblivious Carnivores. We don't care about much, but if it moves we'll eat it.

    Or the Carnivorous Oblivion. No wait, that's the band name.

    Republicans are about tort reform until they get 86'd from a bar for something really trivial, at which point whatever it is becomes a protected class issue? Good to know...

    Don't think it's a good business practice unless the guy was going to drive away other customers (possible), other than that it sounds like a simple refusal of service.

    It's sort of hard to make out what was really going on there. He wasn't completely denied service since he apparently picked up a tab and tacked on a tip as well... and then his whole gig about how the MAGA hat made him especially eligible to be served even more at the same bar, because... because his hat signified to him respect for the lives lost during the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001? And this relates how to Donald Trump's campaign hat? And why should a West Village bar be where it suddenly matters most?

    Waiting for good ol' Rudy Giuliani to 'splain it to me. But meanwhile when you're in a bar you can just be asked to leave if you become obnoxious enough. He wasn't denied service. Maybe more service, but that's par for the course in a bar when something goes awry in the relationship between barkeep and patron.

    Due to the hat story I think I'll side with the bar. If this guy wasn't obnoxious at the time then he would have been soon.

    I don't know what my group would be called, but my sig has our mascot. Who is oppressing us? Non-drinkers! Who's on our side? Any one who wants to have a good time.

    I know you mean avatar (display pic), but it would be fun to see citizenzen be the mascot.
