Vancouver’s Teahouse in Stanley Park has been flooded with a wave of one-star Yelp reviews following a recent incident that saw a manager fired for refusing service to a man in a “Make America Great Again” hat.
Darin Hodge was dismissed from the restaurant Thursday, two days after asking a customer to remove the red MAGA hat, which signals support not just for Donald Trump, but for his divisive and often racist policies.
The Sequoia Company of Restaurants, which owns the Teahouse, said in an emailed statement that it “does not support intolerance of any kind” and “cannot discriminate against someone based on their support for the current administration in the United States or any other bona fide political party.”
But Hodge was defiant, releasing a statement Friday through Facebook standing by his decision. “The MAGA hat has come to symbolize racism, bigotry, Islamophobia, misogyny, white supremacy, homophobia,” Hodge said. “As a person with a strong moral backbone, I had to take a stand against this guest’s choice of headgear while in my former place of work. Absolutely no regrets.”
(“Often racist policies” the sun says. But doesn’t bother to name one of them. Someone should sue this paper.)
ITALY refused to accept another migrant ship carrying 60 people which was rescued by Spain off the coast of Libya – a day after the bodies of drowned babies were fished from the sea.
(The babies drowned because people put them in harms way as part of an illegal endeavour. The people who did that should be charged with murder. Not the people who simply chose not to let them accomplish their illegal goals)

4. Iranian forces have begun to shoot protestors, according to very good sources.
“History shows we will be involved in a major deployment…I’d say it will be in Mali and the Sahel area, where Islamic fundamentalism is a major problem,” said Gen Lord Dannatt.
It is the latest salvo in a row over defence.
MPs say Britain should increase spending on the Armed Forces to at least three per cent of GDP.
Defence Secretary Gavin Williamson wants an extra £4billion a year.
7. Schools in the US drift far from science and reason and to cultural Marxism.
(I guess if you add this to the men pretending to be women who won sprints and weight lifting competitions recently, it means men are just better at being women in every way. Right? Except for like, actually being a woman. But its illegal to mention that at this stage more or less)
MANILA – A 25-year-old trans woman was crowned Miss Universe-Spain on Saturday in a historic moment for the country.
Angela Ponce is the first transsexual to win the prestigious crown in Spain and will represent her country in the Miss Universe 2018 pageant.
9. Iqra Khalid MP announces $23 million from Canadian tax payers to help fund Islamophobia. Unfortunately, the groups receiving money have repeatedly been identified as funding terrorism, have lost charitable status and bank privileges. Will Canada be identified as a national security threat to the United States?
