UPDATE (July 10, 2012):
The gas station owner apologized. Go here for my follow-up on this story.
An American soldier in uniform walks into a Texaco station on Highway 10 in Bogalusa, Louisiana. The Muslims who own the station tell him:
“We don’t sell to your kind here.”
If the video is
deleted censored by YouTube, what it shows is the exterior of the Texaco gas station, with patriotic protesters lining the road. The voice-over narrator describes the denial of service to a serviceman and that there was a previous similar incident.
H/t my friend Mark S. McGrew and FOTM’s beloved Tina.
Mark, who’s running for El Paso County Sheriff, asks this question:
“What would it be like if Jews refuse to serve Christians, blacks refuse to serve whites, whites refuse to serve Mexicans, Democrats refuse to serve Republicans, etc. etc., and everybody refuses to serve anyone not exactly like them?”
My question to the Muslims at that Louisiana Texaco station is:
“If you hate America so much because our soldiers are in ‘your land’ — Afghanistan, Iraq, and the Middle East — why are you in America? Why don’t you go back to your Muslim homeland?”
My apologies to Terry who’d already posted this news! (See his far superior post, “I dun did it now, Cher!“). But I’m not deleting this duplicate post because it’s already received two Facebook clicks and 6 Twitters from readers who missed Terry’s original post.
Will Terry forgive Eo the dolt?
