Judge Makes Unconstitutional Ruling Against Trump Supporter – Creates Exclusive New Right For Leftists!

By on

A Supreme Court Justice in Manhattan has now ruled that it is not a violation of the law to refuse service to a Trump supporter and that they can be asked to vacate the premises on those grounds alone. This case came about when Greg Piatek from Philadelphia was refused service at a bar in New York in January of 2017, and it appeared as though it was because he was wearing a hat which read “Make America Great Again.”

The Hill reported more on the case that critics have stated was a blow to Trump supporters: “A Manhattan judge on Wednesday threw out a case alleging that a New York City bar illegally discriminated against a customer who wore a “Make America Great Again” hat.

Manhattan Supreme Court Justice David Cohen ruled that the law doesn’t protect people from political discrimination, meaning the West Village bar did not overstep its bounds in kicking out the customer, The New York Post reported.

Philadelphia accountant Greg Piatek had said he went to the bar in January 2017, shortly after Trump entered office, and was told to leave after he complained about the staff’s service.

He then sued, claiming the incident “offended his sense of being an American,” according to the Post.

The bar’s lawyer pointed out in court that only religious beliefs, not political ones, were protected under state and local discrimination laws.

Piatek’s lawyer, Paul Liggieri, then said his client had worn the hat “because he was visiting the 9/11 Memorial.”

“He was paying spiritual tribute to the victims of 9/11. The ‘Make America Great Again’ hat was part of his spiritual belief,” Liggieri claimed.

“Rather than remove his hat, instead he held true to his spiritual belief and was forced from the bar,” the lawyer added.

When the judge questioned how the bar’s staff was supposed to know about Piatek’s religious beliefs, Liggieri said they could do so based on the hat.

In throwing out the case, Cohen said the “plaintiff does not state any faith-based principle to which the hat relates.”

The judge said that not being served and being thrown out of the bar because of political beliefs amounted to only a “petty” slight, the Post reported.

“Here the claim that plaintiff was not served and eventually escorted out of the bar because of his perceived support for President Trump is not outrageous conduct,” the judge ruled.”

Replies on Twitter have shown the uproar among critics who were unhappy with the decision. Some of the posts on Twitter were also in support of the judge. There seems to be a divide on what’s right and what’s wrong when it comes to the ruling made by Supreme Court Justice David Cohen. It appears as though some Twitter users began arguing over the ruling which has since proved to be controversial.

Some critics compared this to the incident which involved a baker and gay customers.

The ACLU in Colorado released this information about the gay cake and the baker. It essentially ruled that the baker illegally discriminated against a gay customer. The comparison is that if it’s illegal for that to happen, then some people believe it might be illegal for the bartender to refuse service to a man who supports Trump.

Their website posted: “A Colorado judge today determined that a Lakewood bakery unlawfully discriminated against a gay couple by refusing to sell them a wedding cake.
David Mullins and Charlie Craig visited Masterpiece Cakeshop last year, with Craig’s mother, to order a cake for their upcoming wedding reception. Mullins and Craig planned to marry in Massachusetts and then celebrate with family and friends back home in Colorado. Masterpiece owner Jack Phillips informed them that because of his religious beliefs the store’s policy was to deny service to customers who wished to order baked goods to celebrate a same-s*x couple’s wedding.

“Being denied service by Masterpiece Cakeshop was offensive and dehumanizing especially in the midst of arranging what should be a joyful family celebration,” said Mullins. “No one should fear being turned away from a public business because of who they are. We are grateful to have the support of our community and our state, and we hope that today’s decision will help ensure that no one else will experience this kind of discrimination again in Colorado.”
