It now seems that liberals — who generally rail against discrimination — are now okay with discrimination, as long as it’s against Trump supporters.  On Friday, Mediaite reported that a popular sports bar in Iowa decided to charge Trump voters more than Hillary voters.

According to Mediaite:

Iowa was one of the states where Donald Trump edged out Hillary Clinton– he won 51.8% of the vote. One Iowa restaurant is responding the only way they know how- by charging Trump supporters more to come into their restaurant.

Stella’s is a popular sports bar in University Heights. During University of Iowa games, the bar generally charges a cover of $5. This weekend, however, before people entered the bar, they were asked how they voted. If a patron voted for Clinton, regardless of which team the person was rooting for, he or she was charged $5. Trump supporters were charged $10-$20, depending on which team they were cheering on. If you were rooting for Michigan and had voted for Trump, you were reportedly charged the steep $20 cover. According to CBS 2 News, the bar had a sign on the door that said, “Yes, this is discrimination, but you voted for it.”

CBS 2 noted:

We called Stella and an employee confirmed they did charge different prices. We also talked with the man who says he might not go back.

Eric Stelter of Cedar Rapids left the Iowa Hawkeye game at halftime Nov. 12 to watch the rest from a nearby restaurant.

“As we got closer to the door, we noticed there was a sign on the door that said, ‘Yes, this is discrimination, but you voted for it,’” he said.

“Stelter says he and his wife found out it wasn’t a joke and they decided to go home,” CBS added.

CBS further said it “tried several times to reach the owner of Stella, but haven’t heard back.”
