A Manhattan judge ruled Wednesday that there’s nothing “outrageous” about throwing the president’s supporters out of bars — because the law doesn’t protect against political discrimination.

Philadelphia accountant Greg Piatek, 31, was bounced from a West Village watering hole in January 2017, just after Trump took the oath of office, for wearing a “Make America Great Again” cap, according to his lawsuit over the incident.

“Anyone who supports Trump — or believes in what you believe — is not welcome here! And you need to leave right now because we won’t serve you!” Piatek claims the staff of The Happiest Hour on West 10th Street told him after he and his pals complained about the rude service they were getting from a bartender.

But on Wednesday, when the bar’s lawyer, Elizabeth Conway, pointed out that only religious, and not political, beliefs are protected under state and city discrimination laws, saying, “supporting Trump is not a religion” — Piatek pivoted.

  1. A few observations:
    1) The Judge is 100% correct. Unless you’re being discriminated against as a member of a protected class, it isn’t illegal to discriminate against you for any reason, no matter how silly and/or obnoxious.
    2) The bar staff were jerks.
    3) Had a Hillary-supporter been similarly discriminated against, there would be a grass-roots movement to boycott the bar, politicians would be talking about creating new laws so it could never happen again, and newspaper editorials would be squealing like stuck pigs about the evil, misogynistic bar that mistreated Hillary supporters.

  2. But gays you are not allowed to throw out,
    Blacks you at not allowed to throw out
    Hispanics you are not allowed to throw out

    Trump supporters wearing a MAGA cap? yes you may throw them out.

    RIGHT!! Justice in the USA is alive and well.

  3. But they’re not allowed to throw out Hillary supporters, Dems, LGBTQs and other nutcases and get fined for refusing to bake cakes for immoral weddings.

  4. Oh really?!
    But yet they banned PRIVATE stores in Williamsburg from posting signs “requesting” their patrons dress in a modest way!!! WHY IS THIS ANY DIFFERENT?! So you can throw out a Trump supporter but you can’t throw out a piece of human garbage who is dressed like a pig and offends my religion!

  5. I dont understand why insist doing business with them. I think the proper reaction is to walk out, go to another bar, and perhaps tell our friends to avoid the place.

    • You’re only allowed to boycott those evil white heterosexual racist males who are conservative. You’re never allowed to boycott a ultra left wing radical business. That’s not ethical.

  6. So could building owners bar apartments to the hillarey voters. Maybe we should put up signs in stores that no Hillarey voters welcome and watch the liberal media go crazy. This would keep out all the liberal immodest dressed women from entering stores in jewish communities like williamsburg and Boro park.
