  1. BREAKING: Fairness Campaign announces boycott of Woody’s Tavern « Queer Louisville Says:

    […] BREAKING: Fairness Campaign announces boycott of Woody’s Tavern By Keith Fairness Campaign has released a statement announcing the boycott of Woody’s Tavern. The owner, David Norton, has once again been accused of making racist and volatile comments to customers in his bar. If you have been following this story, Norton drove a group of students and a professor out of his bar a year ago due to racist and sexist comments, which he publicly apologized for almost two month ago.

    This is clearly a case of “Making a Mountain Out of a Moe Hill”

    In April 2008, Professor Kaila Story overreacted at Woody’s Bar with the two dogs by jumping on top of the pool table. On September 21, 2009 there were (according to sources) four African-Americans playing pool at Woody’s and after they had problems with the table, instead of reporting this to the bartender(s), on their own they lifted the table and let it drop to the floor to dislodge the balls. As you can see with Professor Kaila Story and the four African-Americans this can throw off the leveling and/or crack the slate top of the pool table which would be very costly to repair and much more $$$ to replace. For the most part and in this day and time people do NOT respect other people’s property, especially in a bar where drinking is going on… With this in mind Woody’s Bar owner, David Norton rightfully so confronted Professor Kaila Story and the four African-Americans, but overreacted with his alleged racist and sexist comments.

    ALL parties where out-of-order and overreacted… But, now the Fairness Campaign/LGBT rights organization want to stone David Norton and his business to death. Let him who is without sin cast the first stone. They are demanding him to sell Woody’s or close the doors and never re-open again. You do NOT stone a man and his business to death over a few racist and/or sexist comments. This is nazism stuff. I believe the motive and intent of the Fairness Campaign/LGBT rights organization is unfair and wrong in this case. I am a purple heart vietnam veteran and I sense a smell of nazism/communism rule. With that said… I, Miss Laci do NOT give the Fairness Campaign/LGBT rights organization her seal of approval in this case and does NOT and will NOT support a boycott againce Woody’s Bar… But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you; Matthew 5:44… This bible verse is my prayer for this case… Love, Miss Laci
