In a viral public confrontation, a transgender board member confronted the owner of a Washington Star Wars store over a sign that read “If you were born with an ad * ck, you are not a chick.”
Aberdeen, Wash., City Council member Tiesa Meskis confronted Sucher & Sons Star Wars store owner Don Sucher on Wednesday about the Sucher sign, which sits outside his store front, according to King5 News .
“Everyone loves it,” Sucher can be heard saying to Meskis in the video. “They take pictures of it. They publish it. 9/10 customers love it.
“You know what, that’s bullshit,” Meskis replies.
“No, what you’re talking about is bullshit,” Sucher told the transgender board member, who replied, “No, it isn’t. Trans women are women, sir, that sign is bullshit. “
Graphic language warning in the videos below:
The video shows that Sucher and Meskis continue to argue before Sucher tells Meskis, “You know what, nobody confronts you in the ass. That’s the problem. If they say, what’s going on. , damn… do you know how many people you embarrassed at town hall? they gotta put up with this shit?
“Whenever bullshit like this happens, my sales go up because people want it,” Sucher told the transgender board member.
“Really? We’re going to show them that side of you,” Meskis said, referring to the video, “I hope we can wake you up. Let’s wake you up to the truth sir.
The public confrontation continues for over five minutes as Meskis repeatedly yells “trans women are women” and Sucher repeatedly yells “you are crazy”. “You are not a woman,” he told the board member.
“I don’t care what they do, but don’t come here and complain about things. I have freedom of speech, ”Sucher told KING 5 on Thursday.
“I do not give [expletive] on feelings more, ”Sucher told the publication. “I went to Vietnam to fight for all of this [expletive]. Do you think i care about some [expletive] feeling? Absolutely not!”
Meskis told the post that while Sucher has the right to say whatever he wants, Meskis wanted to tell him his comments were hurtful.
“We are people,” Meskis told King 5. “We are who we are and we all want to be accepted in our community.”
Meskis plans to demonstrate outside the store on Saturday morning with supporters, according to KING5.
Neither Meskis nor Sucher immediately responded to requests for comment from the Daily Caller News Foundation, but Sucher & Sons Star Wars Shop is quickly garnering hundreds of positive reviews from Google praising Sucher and his store.
The five-star reviews contained comments such as “The owner is a legend, a pretty neat store,” “Just to counter all the enemies, don’t like him staying out of his store,” “Based. The world would be a better place if we all had a grandfather like him “,” This is the way “,” I love the store and the owner. Thank you for your service to the country. We support you 🙂 ”and“ Be firm and thank you for your service! “
Several reviewers have asked Sucher to create an online store or Shopify account so they can help.
