A community rallies. When a Virginia restaurant refused to serve White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders, it received arson threats and postcards smeared with excrement. A year later, the 26-seat Red Hen restaurant is thriving, and co-owner Stephanie Wilkinson is grateful to the community and customers who stood by her. “For every hateful message, there was one of gratitude,” Wilkinson said. “What’s more, for every wish that our business die a painful death, there was a dollar bill or a generous check or an order for a gift certificate.” Her takeaway? “Our haters may have believed that there were more of 'them' than of 'us,' but it turns out we have more than enough to keep us cooking. And to everyone who might be fearful about taking a stand, I say don’t be.” (Washington Post)

It's commerce/business and politics and religion should stop at the front door of any business. I dislike Sanders, but she and her party should have been served.
