(Spartanburg, SC — December 31, 2016) – A popular restaurant chain with a history of discrimination and racism has embraced the supporters of the incoming administration of Donald Trump (R-NY).
They’ve decided if you can’t lick ’em, join ’em.
Denny’s, a multi-million dollar business, has decided to change its slogan to keep in line with Squirrelhead Donald and his lieutenants, such as anti-Semite Stephen Bannon and Islamophobe Frank Gaffney.
Denny’s has a history of refusing service to those who aren’t White Anglo-Saxon Protestants. In April 1993, the Denny’s of Annapolis (MD) refused to serve six black secret service agents. During their hour at the restaurant, they ordered several times but never received any food. At the next table of white secret service agents, there was no problem with the service.
“The whole thing was unbelievable,” said a spokesman for the law practice of Littler Mendelson, speaking on condition of anonymity. “In addition to being offensive and insensitive, not to mention racist, do you really want to piss off a table of six armed individuals?”
In May 1994, Denny’s settled a class-action lawsuit of over 4,300 complaints for $54 million.
The settlement did not mean Denny’s had learned its lesson. On May 7, 2014, a Denny’s in Los Angeles (CA) attempted to make two African-American customers prepay for their meals – apparently because the manager thought the customers would not pay the bill at the conclusion of their meals. And, no, prepaying at Denny’s is not standard practice.
The lawsuit brought by the two customers was settled in their favor on February 5, 2016.
And yet it appears that Denny’s has still not learned its lesson. Following the incident with the secret service agents, customers were henceforth and forthwith given the option of sitting in the “racist” or “non-racist” sections of the Denny’s franchise.
But given the results of Election 2016, in which the country’s rabid racists actually won the White House, Denny’s will change the racist/non-racist seating – and the company slogan – to something new: “All Racist, All the Time.”
“We saw the election results,” said a Denny’s spokesman, speaking on condition of anonymity. “We saw that Mr. Trump won a majority of the Electoral College votes, and a majority of the popular vote. We know which Americans voted for him, so we’re going to accommodate the will of the majority of Americans. It’s as simple as that.”
Unfortunately for the Denny’s spokesman – and the restaurant’s management if it truly believes its spokesman, not to mention the millions of uneducated inbred hicks in this country – Squirrelhead Donald lost the popular vote by about 3 million votes.
In spite of that untruth, Denny’s apparently will still go forward catering to the Trumpist Brownshirts who are blindly following the first illegitimate president elected in this country’s history. In addition to frothing-at-the-mouth Tea Partyists, these groups include David Duke’s (R-LA) Ku Klux Klan (KKK).
Denny’s apparently believes that “regular” Squirrelhead Donald voters will flock to their 1,700 establishments – voters such as a psychotic Trump-supporting holiday shopper at Michaels in Lakewood (IL) and a psychotic Trump-supporting holiday shopper at JC Penney in Louisville (KY). Voters such as former Clay (WV) Mayor Beverly Whaling (R-WV) and Clay County Development Corporation Director Pamela Ramsey Taylor.
The list goes on.
Time will tell if Denny’s strategy pays off or blows up in its face. But, effective January 1, 2017, it stands as official company policy.
“We’re also going to use the slogan “Denny’s: Where You’ll Never See Coffee Served Black” to get our point across,” said a Denny’s spokesman, speaking on condition of anonymity and carrying an armful of white sheets, wood, and gasoline.
