KKK wins lawsuit against bakery for discrimination

KKK

A Georgia court has ruled in favor of the KKK in a discrimination lawsuit.

A Georgia court has ruled in favor of Marshall Saxby, the Grand Wizard of a local KKK chapter, in a lawsuit stemming from two years ago when a local bakery denied him service.

The three judge panel concluded unanimously that the bakery had violated civil rights laws by discriminating against Saxby when they refused to sell him a cake for his organization’s annual birthday party.

Elaine Bailey, who owns Bailey Bakeries, refused to bake a cake for the ceremony because it violated her religious beliefs.

Saxby filed the lawsuit claiming that Bailey’s refusal of service was discriminatory against his religious beliefs.

The case is similar to the recent decision in New Mexico where a court has ruled that a photographer discriminated against a gay couple for refusing to provide them service.

Bailey said in a prepared statement, “it’s a sad day when bigots have to be treated equally before the law. If they can discriminate against people, then surely I cannot be forced to support their beliefs by providing them services against my will.”

Saxby was very happy with the outcome, stating “the law says that it’s wrong to discriminate against people if you run a business, and that means she was wrong in discriminating against our organization by refusing us service.”

People on both sides of the issue have had varying remarks.

One man stated “I am against anti-discrimination laws. Freedom means people are able to do what they wish with their lives and property. Society can punish bad behaviors in a market, but the power to take away from someones life as if it did not belong to them is frightening.

Another person familiar with the case responded “This is not the same as denying service to someone based on the color of their skin or sexual preference. This was a choice by the owner of the bakery to not serve someone based on their bigoted lifestyle, and there’s nothing wrong with that.”

Many wonder that if she had simply lied about her reasoning, would this have even been an issue. That leaves the question to the public, do they want discrimination to happen out in the open where people can pinpoint it, or do they want it to operate a cloaked manner where it happens but it’s hard to tell who is doing it?

      It is 100% legal to discriminate against blacks as long as it is not in the form of a business or government.

        Lou Ann, it’s pronounced “EH-kwis”. It translates from Latin as “horse”, and is the name of the genus of animals in the family Equidae (“EH-kwi-dee”), which includes horses, donkeys, and zebras.

    One should consider that there are just as many (if not more) bigoted black, Hispanic and other racial groups. While I detest what the Clan stands for, I equally detest the hypercritical stance taken by people when this issue of the white race is brought up. And before any of you ignorant “race baiters” pop off at the mouth, I’m half “Native American.” My “people” wants ALL OF YOU, to get the hell out of OUR NATIONS!”

    I think this a hilarious case of irony. The law clearly states that no business open to the public can discriminate against anyone for any reason, whether one agrees with it or not. The Civil Rights law is double edged sword.

    It’s ironic that when the aggrieved person is discriminated on the basis of sexual preference (they don’t serve queers), people get upset. But when a customer makes a different choice (to be in the KKK) the standard isn’t important anymore.

    Some will say being queer isn’t a choice. But if homosexuality ISN’T a choice, then it’s a medical condition which may be susceptible to being cured. What? Queers don’t want to be cured? Isn’t that a little like someone with leprosy saying they don’t want to be cured?

    Point is, it’s got to be one way or the other. Either it’s a lifestyle choice (and no different from the KKK) or it’s a medical condition (and we should be looking for a cure).

    • Tim Ramsey, Ph.D. November 26, 2013 at 10:02 am Reply

      Your argument assumes that homosexuality is pathological, i.e akin to disease. If you don’t start with a flawed premise,
      you might be more effective at articulating your point. A more neutral and apt analogy is to compare homosexuality to left handedness. It was once considered to be aberrant and in need of correction, even though it is inherited. Now most rational people would acknowledge that, even if it can be “corrected” through training, why should it be. The expression of my genetics is not yours to judge or fix. Spend your energy becoming more informed and less judgmental. It would be a far better use of your time.

    BambiB said, ” What? Queers don’t want to be cured? Isn’t that a little like someone with leprosy saying they don’t want to be cured?” No, its like someone who smokes knowing it is killing them, but they don’t try to stop. Or like people who have been forced to be on Oxygen all the time (b/c of smoking), yet still smoking.
    The APA (the organization that first said homosexuality was genetic) have been forced by current science to admit they lied about this. They now classify this sin as a mental derangement. But the damage is done, the media repeated the lie so many times people actually believe it and still use it as an excuse to say they are normal.

    If we are forced to treat blacks equally, then you can be damn sure that we will be treated equally even if we hate blacks.
    In no way, shape, or fashion will blacks ever have rights that all other people do not. Blacks do not deserve nor will they receive any special rights or privileges.

  14. Skeptic September 28, 2013 at 7:01 am Reply

    By law, every business must be willing to supply their service to all comers (as opposed to a private club, which naturally may admit only those they want). That’s the law. It’s part of what operating a public business means.

    And, yes, that includes bigots (so long as they behave themselves and do not cause a disturbance). It is just as illegal to deny service to someone for being a KKK member as it is to deny him service because he is Black or Jewish or communist or whatever.

    This has nothing to do with endorsing his views. It has to do with giving people their civil rights, even if they have disgusting views. If you are not willing to serve all customers, you shouldn’t be operating a business — just like you should not be operating a business if you don’t feel like obeying with food safety regulations.

    Why this is even an issue I have no idea. The judges clearly made the right choice, and they did not “endorse” the KKK in any way.

    I don’t agree with the decision. People have the right to associate with whoever they wish when ever and where ever.. The idea of a”Public” place is a phony construct created by liberals to give them the power to shove their moral beliefs down our throats. Government and its functions are the only Public activities. Everything else is private and should be treated as such. Our country and race relations would be a lot more advanced if we respected the right to associate. People have a right to love or hate anybody they wish for any reason. Who am I to judge what is truly in a man’s heart or mind. It is called freedom. We need to get back to it.

      Of course, you’re right. But the implication is that any business would be able to discriminate against anyone at any time for any reason. Black? Queer? KKK? Jewish? Catholic? Female? Any or all could be discriminated against.

      The way things are today, the only group it’s “safe” to discriminate against is white, heterosexual males. The government does that all the time by giving “preferences” to everyone else. Not only does government encourage this discrimination – it demands it. But then, recently the government has only been reflecting the desires of the majority voting block: Women. That’s why our debt is $18 trillion, we borrow 40% of every Federal dollar spent and we’re facing $200 trillion in unfunded mandates over the next 50 years.

      The 19th Amendment was the biggest legislative mistake in the history of America. It won’t be long until we see the results: Complete economic collapse.

      • Keitho September 28, 2013 at 10:24 am

        This seems to be the crossover point between satire and trolling.

        If only men were allowed to vote we would still get saddled with these dolts. Women aren’t to blame for their incompetence. I remain astonished by so many women’s wish to be in the workplace. The stress, monotony and occasional sense of achievement seem like an odd trade for forming the home and ensuring that the next generation is safe.

        Men have no option but to go out to work, women don’t have to do it. Those who go out to work have a huge advantage over men. Those women can take it or leave it, hardly any men can.

      • BambiB September 28, 2013 at 11:08 am

        I’m not saying there still wouldn’t be idiots in government. But the policies would be different. Read the research http://www.people.fas.harvard.edu/~iversen/PDFfiles/LottKenny.pdf
        It is the women’s vote that has driven us into debt.

        I agree with you on the women in the workplace to some extent. However, without an independent income, it’s difficult to be “independent”. “Independence” is at the heart of the lie women have sold themselves. “I am woman, hear me roar… but just in case, I want government welfare programs to subsidize me in a social safety net.”

        Men DO have an option to not work. That’s what you’re seeing today. I recently read, “Men on Strike: Why Men Are Boycotting Marriage, Fatherhood, and the American Dream – and Why It Matters” which chronicles the decrease in men going to college, entering the work force and getting married. As the male role is widely denigrated (even in commercial advertising it’s seen as acceptable to disparage men), men are retreating from the traditional roles. In general, the trend is towards video games and porn as a replacement – with jobs that provide for the bare necessities and no attempt at higher education.

        I call it the “pussification” of America… but then, I’m not politically correct.

    Regardless of the law, how would you answer the following, “If a business didn’t want to serve a black member of the NAACP would you have a problem with this, cry racism and demand the business owner kowtow?”. If you have a problem with one and not the other then in my opinion, you have a problem. I think business owners should be able to discriminate against anyone they wish to. Freedom!

  19. BambiB September 28, 2013 at 8:10 pm Reply

    Ironically, that’s pretty much what Rand Paul said (or something similar). Of course, the liberals all just about had heart attacks.

    The way I look at it, a business that discriminates against customers/employees may just hurt itself. Imagine the world’s best salesman is black – and a business won’t hire him because of that. Doesn’t he just cross the street and work for the business’ competitor? Don’t customers who feel unwelcome just go across the street to buy from the competition?

    On the other hand, if the black guy is a lazy good-for-nothing bum, should the company be forced to hire him? Should money be stolen from taxpayers to subsidize him? If the black customers are routinely stealing, shouldn’t a store owner be allowed to ban them?

    if queers are protected, then cracker racists should also be protected. While discrimination on the basis of race or gender is problematic (because the person being discriminated can’t really do anything about their status), choosing to be a racist cracker or a queer should leave on open to equal levels of discrimination because both are choices.

      Being queer is either an aberration over which the victim has no control (and is possible a medical condition to be cured) or it is a lifestyle choice. If the former, then queers should be looking for treatment. If the latter, then there’s nothing wrong with discriminating against them that isn’t also problematic when discriminating against members of the KKK, who, after all, have only made their “lifestyle choice”.

    My self and my family have been educated by the finest colleges and private Ivy League colleges in this nation, And 80% of my scholastic competition was from female students, who were at the top of our class. I am extremely aware of how much more socially and emotionally evolved women in general are. Of course they must first be allotted the rights to vote and read, which they were given 300 yrs. later than their male counterparts. And look at them go! All in the last 40 yrs!! I work with women every day in a highly powered political science arena. The more educated you become the more you will see what is oh so obvious to the elite, and that the majority of your minimally so called “researched” opinions about women in power, is just another opinion of one person and one author. He obviously is as warped, insecure, uneducated and threatened as you.
    Good luck on your planet of denial.

    The fairies are bigots but I don’t see the liberals having a problem with that. Not trying to justify the Klan but as a cartoon was trying to show back in the early to mid 1990’s in a Rainbow Coalition newsletter: More blacks have been killed at the hand of other blacks than all of the blacks killed by neo-nazi and Klan members combine. The cartoon showed Klan members hiring black street and drug gang members to kill off each other. And that’s not to mention Plan Parenthood that was started by a member of the nazi party from the 1930’s and ’40’s who originally started it to kill blacks that the democrats today so proudly support. Do your homework. Since 1990, more blacks have been killed by other blacks than “all” of the blacks killed by the Klan/neo-nazi’s members since 1900.

      Likewise if the liberal left were really concerned about gun control just denying all African Americans access to guns would reduce gun homicide in America by over 80%.

        Given the gross dysfunction of black society (51% of all homicides by 13% of the population), would you really want it to be 10 times larger? Too big a portion of the black population in American are ignorant savages. Among all groups of people, the percentage of violent criminals is highest among those who weren’t wanted as children. Better to abort them than to lock them up 16 years later for killing someone.
