‘Philosophy of Tolerance’: Restaurant Manager Canned After Attacking Man in MAGA Hat

How far down the tubes is civility? Well, even Canadians have stopped being nice. And no, not just Justin Trudeau, either.

According to Canada’s Global News, Darin Hodge — manager of the Teahouse Restaurant in Vancouver, a popular spot for tourists — is currently jobless after getting himself in a snit on Tuesday aboot a man in a MAGA cap (it can happen in the U.S., too, you might have heard).

“A gentleman came in wearing a hat that was a Make America Great Again hat, and our manager went up to the gentleman and asked him to take off his hat, that he wouldn’t serve him with that hat on,” Eva Gates, vice president of human resources for the Sequoia Group of Restaurants, which owns the Teahouse, told Global.

“And the gentleman said that he had a right to wear that hat. And (the manager) refused to serve him if he wouldn’t take off his hat, and so the customer had to leave.”

While the restaurant called Hodge “a good person with a big heart and a right to his personal beliefs,” its official statement added that what he did violated its “philosophy of tolerance.”

“Sequoia does not support intolerance of any kind, and it is because of these principles that we cannot discriminate against someone based on their support for the current administration in the United States or any other bona fide political party,” the statement reads.

Manager acted outside policy
Company responded appropriately.
All is right with the world.

The only issue is why the manager thought it was appropriate to refuse service to someone in a MAGA hat in the first place.
