During a night out with her friends, a young woman was immediately booted from a pub after a man spotted four words on her shirt that he claims are “offensive.”
Despite all the progress that Western nations have made over the last century, there is still a vocal minority that hopes to use fascist tactics to silence their political opponents or, worse, compel their speech. Disturbingly, their oppressive methods have not only forced many into keeping quiet out of fear but have also attacked the very scientific truths that have been accepted as facts.
When a young mother walked into a British pub, she anticipated a quiet night of drinks and board games with her girlfriend. What she didn’t expect was that she would be kicked out of the bar and possibly destroyed by a very vocal minority of fascist social justice warriors for her choice of clothing.
Rebekah Wershbale, 34, was forced out of the Five Clouds Tap and Bottle in Macclesfield, Cheshire after a gay man spotted four words on her shirt and reported her to the bar’s staff for “offending” transgendered people. The shirt that got Rebekah kicked out of the pub reads, “Woman: adult human female,” which the bar staff concluded wasn’t “inclusive” enough and, therefore, warranted them banning her from their business.
Wershbale told the Daily Mail that she was “stunned” by the staff members’ reaction to something as simple as the actual dictionary and biological definition of a woman.
Wershbale said, “She told me that the T-shirt I was wearing was upsetting people because it was transphobic and not inclusive so I was barred. What she meant was that I was somehow offending men who say they are women because my T-shirt did not include them in the definition of a woman. There aren’t even any transgender staff or patrons at the pub. It’s crackers.”
Although Wershbale is a staunch feminist herself, her liberal activism wasn’t intersectional enough to save her from the fascist movement of the radical left. She explained that, once she understood that gay bar patron Mika Johnson was responsible for the complaint, she unsuccessfully attempted to open up a peaceful dialogue only to find that he merely wanted to shut her down instead of exchanging ideas.
“I sat down next to him and asked him how he was,” Wershbale said. “He said, ‘I don’t want to talk to you to be honest – please leave me alone.’ So I said OK and left it.”
Just 30 minutes after Wershbale unsuccessfully tried to remedy the situation and returned to her table, a barmaid confronted her, claiming that Johnson “was crying” and ultimately ordered her out of the pub. The staff member even admitted to discriminating against Wershbale based on her political preference, namely her feminist beliefs.
“She told me that the way I talk about radical feminism was a problem and said: ‘The T-shirt you’re wearing is upsetting and not inclusive.’ I replied that it simply said the dictionary definition of being a woman – how can it be offensive?
“She mumbled a bit about it being transphobic and that I had been transphobic previously. She then said I was barred and that she had been nominated by the other bar staff to come to tell me that. I asked if she thought it was troubling that I was being removed from my own local because I was wearing a feminist T-shirt that had upset a gay man. But she just repeated I wasn’t being inclusive.”
Tom Lewis, who owns Five Clouds Tap and Bottle Brewery, confirmed that Wershbale had been kicked out based on her political beliefs. However, he claims that there was a series of incidents in which she had upset staff members and customers by giving her opinions, which is apparently a punishable offense in Lewis’ business. He added that Wershbale will be allowed back in the pub at an undisclosed date if she agrees to “have a discussion with staff so she understands the situation.”
Like clockwork, self-appointed trans-activists have vocalized their support for fascist strategies resulting in the crushing of their political rivals. In a garbled and angry opinion piece for Medium.com, an admitted transgendered blogger equated Wershbale with the “KKK” and advocated for anyone who disagrees that transgender women are by definition women to be ostracized from the public. The blogger even uses the Marxist-left’s tactic of claiming that words are weapons in a bid to tyrannically suppress differing opinions.
Disturbingly, the fascist trend of conflating speech with discrimination and violence is sweeping the Western world, threatening to eradicate the very liberty that sets us apart from the totalitarian regimes. Fortunately, there are still those who haven’t kowtowed to this intimidating minority.
Tory MP David Davies said, “Terrifyingly this insidious creep of open debate no longer being tolerated and freedom of speech being suppressed is now spreading from our university campuses to the streets of our historic market towns. It is a very sad day when a woman is barred from her pub for wearing a T-shirt that states the obvious because it might offend transgender people.”
The difference between conservatives and the left is that we hope to discuss ideas and allow for the best logic to prevail and progress us while they actively shut down the exchange of ideas and silence their opponents. They must be exposed for their fascism and stopped from taking away the rights of their political opponents.
