If someone asks why you bust out laughing whenever this is referred to as a free country, cite this story:
A bar owner has been ordered to pay $400,000 to a group of cross-dressers he banned from his club last year.
The Bureau of Labor and Industries civil rights division imposed the penalty against Chris Penner, owner of the Twilight Room Annex, also known as the P Club, on North Lombard Street [in Portland, Oregon].
Penner had told members of the Rose City T-Girls they could not return to his bar.
Penner’s lawyer, Johnathan Radmacher, told KGW Friday that Penner called the Rose City T-Girls because they had driven away all of the bar’s other Friday night business.
“He did not exclude them and did not intend to exclude them; he simply asked that they not use the P Club on Friday nights because it had killed his business,” Radmacher said.
For this transgression against political correctness, Penner also gets to pay a $5,000 civil fine.
Who does the club belong to, Penner or the government? The government, obviously, because that’s who decides who will frequent the place. Who does the money in Penner’s bank account belong to? The government again, to be redistributed as the liberal thugs comprising it see fit.
This is excellent news for perverts, weirdos, and other groups favored by our ruling class, but very bad news for everyone else.
