Dairy Queen owner defends ‘politically incorrect’ restaurant sign

KEWASKUM, Wis. (CBS 58) — A sign on the door of a Kewaskum Dairy Queen, calling the restaurant ‘politically incorrect’ is generating business and conversation.

The sign reads: “This restaurant is politically incorrect.” It warns potential customers that staff may say things like “Merry Christmas,” “Happy Easter,” and will also offer free sundaes to veterans on Veterans Day. It also says “In God We Trust.”

    “American Dairy Queen Corporation does not encourage our independently owned and operated franchisees to post non-business related messages in their locations or on their external reader boards. This sign expresses the views of this independent owner only and does not speak for ADQ Corporation or any of our other independent franchise owners.”

    Corporate weasels and politicians hail from the same gene pool.

    I see a trend for more BuyCotts that counter the Leftist fascists Boycott .

    When the PRIDE parade in Toronto allowed 2 pro-hamas jew-hating groups top march in it for about 5 years in a row…..I got one of the FREE PRIDE booklets to find out the Corporations and Charter Banks that were sponsors .
    The Gheystapo and Homofascists are using the Nazi Party tactics of the 1930’s where loyal German’s that ran a business had to fly the nazi flag or symbol to prove they were a jew-lover or anti-nazi.
    So the Rainbow Flag is now the Nazi flag where you have to fly it to Prove you’re not a homophobe.

    I did a buycott to shop at the businesses that didn’t sponsor PRIDE during those 5 years .

    The Franchiser is perfectly entitled to lay down whatever conditions they want as long as it is within the law. The Franchisee is obligated to uphold these conditions. If he wants to do something different just open up an independent shop somewhere else or start his own franchise. It’s a free market.

    The fact that the owner had to put that sign up to make a statement should disturb ANYONE whether or not they’re religious and/or patriotic.
    It’s long past the point where anyone can bury their head in the sand and pretend we’re NOT under (constant) attack.
    A silly woman-neighbour sent me an anti-Trump song thinking she was being clever. She asked me what I thought of it, with a smug little smirk.
    I told her I deleted it, and I found her sending it to me offensive. Shut that conversation down pretty quick…
