Members of the Fordham University College Republicans were asked to leave an on-campus coffee shop because their MAGA hats apparently violated the shop’s “safe space policy.”

[T]he self-identified president of Rodrigue’s Coffee House, a coffee shop run by a student club, is seen telling the College Republicans they have five minutes to get out of the coffee shop. “This is a community standard—you are wearing hats that completely violate safe space policy. You have to take it off or you have to go.” “I am protecting my customers,” the president said.

“We are your customers, we bought something,” a CR member replied.

“I don’t want people like you supporting this club… no one here wants people like you supporting our club,” the president retorted. “I am giving you five minutes.”

A student then asked for a refund, to which the president responded, “[y]ou had some coffee… do not try to outsmart me.” [story]

Offhand, I don’t think outsmarting that officious commissar would be much of a challenge.

Yeah, it’s a civil-rights thing
Some of us are old enough to remember this

(What? Nah, I thought about PShopping MAGA hats on these guys, but that would be presumptuous and disrespectful of guys who showed true *clank* just down the road from Klan HQ.)

    Rule 1. “This is a community standard—you are wearing hats that completely violate safe space policy. You have to take it off or you have to go.”
    Corollary to Rule 1. Wearers of Che t-shirts get a free refill. We feel safe with Che around.

    if the bakery prevails in Masterpiece Cakeshop, Ltd. v. Colorado Civil Rights Commission, as i hope that they do, this coffee shop could end up being owned by the folks that they threw out.

    I have “The Empire Strikes Back” on TV right now. Very racist comments. Princess Leia says, “I’d sooner kiss a Wookie!” Imagine if she had referred to a black guy or Mexican or Frenchman.

    Wookies. Still OK to discriminate against Wookies.
