This Democrat Defended Bars that Banned U.S. Military Members

North Carolina Democratic Senate candidate Deborah Ross doesn’t believe those who serve our country are a “protected class.”

The Washington Free Beacon reports:

Ross has been forced to answer for much of the work she did as head of North Carolina’s ACLU branch during her Democratic primary battle and current campaign to unseat Republican Sen. Richard Burr. Critics of her ACLU record have pointed to cases that Ross took up and also cases that she chose to ignore, such as a Vietnam veteran who asked for her help after being told he could not fly the American flag on his property.

One group that never received her help was a group of active military members in North Carolina who were told they could not attend certain bars because they were part of the armed forces.

Active personnel at Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune complained to Wilmington, North Carolina’s Star-News in 1996 after it became normal for bars in town to refuse service to military members. Bars began installing “no-military” policies in Wilmington, citing complaints about “violent and vulgar behavior by some young Marines.” The rules applied to all personnel who looked like they were in the military, whether or not they had caused any trouble.

… Ross told the paper that the bars were acting within their rights when they instated the bans, explaining that members of the armed forces are not a “protected class.”

Democrats claim they are opposed to discrimination- unless you are a member of the military, pro-life, or conservative. Progressives believe they get to pick and choose what citizens are more “equal” than others.

It’s not as if Deborah Ross was shying away from high profile or controversial cases, either:

Ross has taken heat for numerous cases that she took while at the ACLU. Two weeks ago, the Morning Consult looked into work Ross did on behalf of Ku Klux Klan members hoping to hold a public demonstration. She also defended the right for people to burn the American flag and wanted Christmas songs banned from elementary schools.

“There was one common theme during Deborah Ross’ dangerous ACLU career: she’ll stand up for convicted criminals and sex offenders, but can’t be bothered to help veterans or military members in need,” said Jesse Hunt, a spokesman for Sen. Burr.

Clearly, protecting those who serve our country is not a priority for Deborah Ross.
