It had been a while since Paula Schonauer dined at a local Oklahoma City hot spot for dinner when she stopped by the popular eatery to enjoy some surf and turf. As she approached the front door, she noticed a sign that wasn’t there before, which only pertained to “certain” people that the owner was clearly fed-up about and wasn’t afraid to say it in his own way.
Schonauer immediately lost her appetite at the short sentiment seen in the window and demanded that the owner of the Steak and Catfish Barn, Bob Warner, remove it on her complaint alone. Not only did he rightfully ignore her request, but he enraged the mouthy liberal even more with his brilliant response.
Warner had simply provided a warning for all potential patrons before entering that his facility does not have a transgender bathroom “so don’t be caught in the wrong one,” KFOR reported about the apparently “offensive” sign.
Schonauer is actually not a woman, “she” was in fact born a man and at some point in adulthood decided to identify as a woman and make everyone else play along with his/her gender-bender game. The pissed off patron took the sign as a threat and brought in some liberal backing to support the ridiculous claim. Troy Stevenson, with Freedom Oklahoma, said that the sign incites violence against transgenders for which Warner had the perfect reply.
Stevenson said, “You’ve got this sign implying a threat of potential violence against somebody for going to pee. That’s not the Oklahoma standard. That’s not what it means to be American. That’s just wrong,” thinking he had called the owner to task. What he didn’t take into account was that not everyone buys into the liberal fear mongering and propaganda they’re slinging with these inflammatory claims of violence, and Warner was certainly one to shut him down.
“We have a lot of redneck guys that come in here. Truck drivers and everything,” Warner explained. “They’re big husky guys and I said ‘man alive!’ If their wife or their little girl walked in that bathroom and a man followed them in there, I wouldn’t have a restaurant,” he added, along with saying that the real threat wasn’t in his sign, it’s what’s going to happen to people in the wrong bathrooms who cross paths with pissed off patrons.
He simply wanted to protect people, on both sides, which Schonauer and Stevenson decided to take as discrimination. For that reason, Warner should take the sign down and let these people enter at their own risk and get what they deserve for misreading his warning.
