Restaurant in DC Cancels Reservation of Group Due to Pro-Life Stance

Given the strength of the conservative world’s counter-protest efforts, there is little doubt that a boycott is just over the horizon for the chain eatery.

There are plenty of ways in which Americans continue to divide themselves, all stemmed in some form of intolerance or another.

We have been cleaving as a nation for some time, mostly down the false dichotomy of politics.  It’s Team R versus Team D, and the only winner is going to be the mainstream media.

But there are other third rail topics that keep our nation debatin’, and abortion is one of the hottest topics in town.  That’s why the recent actions of a DC area restaurant have done more harm than good to our national discourse.

A restaurant chain’s Washington, DC, location has refused to honor an event it scheduled with a group’s “March for Life Breakfast’ because the organization espouses pro-life views.

The K Street location of Busboys and Poets notified Democrats for Life of America (DFLA) on January 11 it would not be honoring the group’s reservation for its event that coincides with the annual March for Life on the National Mall January 21.

The chain was simply unapologetic.

“When our team learned the fundraising nature of the event in question, the decision was made to cancel it and refund all deposits to the event organizer,” a spokeswoman for Busboys and Poets told Catholic News Agency (CNA).

The spokeswoman said the chain “stands firmly on the belief that women have the right to make their own reproductive health decisions,” and added:

“While we welcome conversations from individuals expressing different viewpoints and pride ourselves on being a venue for respectful conversations between diverse groups, we are also a safe space. As such, we cannot knowingly accept events designed to fund an agenda which our community members believe to be trampling on the rights of others.”

Given the strength of the conservative world’s counter-protest efforts, there is little doubt that a boycott is just over the horizon for the chain eatery.

Secret Service Shamed After Drunk Agents Assault Cab Driver in South Korea

There is a history of poor behavior from the Secret Service during Democratic administrations.

You can tell a lot about a White House by the extracurricular nonsense that hits the press surrounding it.

For instance, after one of President Joe Biden’s dogs began biting random people on the grounds, we started hearing murmurs of just how terse and stressful the place had become, with dog behavior experts suggesting that the mood at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue might have a lot to do with the aggression.

This week, the Biden administration beget more bad behavior, but this time it wasn’t from one of the First Pets.

Two U.S. Secret Service agents in South Korea were sent stateside ahead of President Biden’s arrival following their involvement in an off-duty alcohol-related incident.

The two agents, whose identities have not been made public, are on their way back to Washington, D.C. where they will face disciplinary action, a source familiar with the matter told Fox News.

Both agents apparently became intoxicated while not on duty. One of the agents then got into an altercation with a cab driver.

There could be more trouble coming, as well.

In South Korea, officials send mediators to the scene of low-level disputes and then determine if criminal charges would be filed.

One of the agents was interviewed by authorities and no charges have been filed.

The government released one of its usual, dry, boilerplate-esque missives.

“The Secret Service is aware of an off-duty incident involving two employees which may constitute potential policy violations,” USSS chief spokesman Anthony Guglielmi told Fox News. “We have very strict protocols and policies for all employees and we hold ourselves to the highest professional standards.”

There is a history of poor behavior from the Secret Service during Democratic administrations, with a notable incident having occurred in 2012, involving Barack Obama’s agents and a Colombian prostitute.
