Bar in Chicago Bans MAGA Hats


A Facebook post from Replay Lincoln Park, a bar in Chicago, announced the bars new dress code policy. They’re prohibiting face tattoos and no specific hats. The text is followed by images to reflect specifically what the owner is referring to.

It's interesting that the example of a face tattoo is a man with a huge ‘666’ across his forehead. But I am sure he definitely doesn’t think Trump supporters are of the devil. I don’t know how anyone could possibly come to that conclusion.

“I was just frustrated and I just kind of wanted to make somewhat of a statement,” the owner, Mark Kwiatkowski, told a local news station. “I felt like we did have an opportunity to say something that might draw some attention to this ugliness.”

Is this a publicity stunt? Definitely.

Kwiatkowski also said in his interview that they haven’t had to enforce the new dress code on MAGA hat wearers. So, if you don’t need the rule in the first place, then why create some new futile rule?

The official Facebook page of the bar also decided to interact with the Red Hen, who infamously denied service to Sarah Huckabee Sanders and her family this weekend followed by a lovely ‘#resist.”

Kwiatkowski also said “I think what we would do is kindly ask them to remove [the hat] but we would let them in certainly and maybe have an opportunity to discuss all of this and see their opinions.”

The owner says feedback has been ‘overwhelmingly positive’ but has gotten some nasty comments on the post. I can't imagine why.
