A woman in Massachusetts decided not to rent an apartment to a person seeking a place to live. The person was not some drug addicted alcoholic or maggot infested hippie. This person was not even an Occupy moron which is just silly because that person would expect the place to be rent free.
It seems that if any of the above mentioned types had applied they would have gotten the place. But SGT Joel Morgan, a National Guardsman, was deemed unacceptable to Janice Roberts, the owner of the apartment.
Roberts is anti war and believes that renting to a person who serves in the military (and who actually served in the war zone) would create a conflict of interest.
SGT Morgan has decided to sue Ms. Roberts and I hope he wins and wins big.
Isn’t it amazing that liberal localities and activist judges make it criminal to ask immigration status of people desiring to rent but the honorable service to our country is a disqualifier?
I wonder what would have happened if Roberts denied an illegal alien the apartment?
I wonder what would have happened if she had denied the apartment to a gay person?
It is highly unlikely that Roberts opposes those two issues but some people do so what would happen if they applied the Roberts’ logic when deciding to rent to people?
While I find it sad that our country has people like Roberts I find it even more so that this takes place in Massachusetts, a state that has a proud history of patriotism and service in peace and war. Many of this Nation’s battles for freedom were fought in that once great state.
Now it is a haven for liberal lunacy.
Maybe SGT Morgan will win and win big and we will have another shot heard round the world from Massachusetts.
I still have hope for the people of Massachusetts because of a wonderful young man named Brendan Haas.
Never surrender, never submit.
