Congressmanís Restaurant Refused To Serve Muslim Couple

Mohammad Husain and his wife were looking for a bite to eat and a nice place to relax when they stopped in last month at a Shreveport, La. sandwich shop owned by Rep. John Fleming (R-LA).

But that visit soon turned turbulent, Husain told TPM recently, when he found himself locked out of the Subway franchise and his wife locked inside with an employee telling them they were not welcome there because they were Muslim.

ďI never have felt this kind of open discrimination,Ē Husain said in an interview on Friday.ďIím sure thereís people that do discriminate. They have their own prejudices. Thatís human nature. But for somebody to openly at a public place to show that open hatred and openly discriminate upon a religion, I think this should not be allowed.Ē

Neither Fleming nor his spokesman returned calls to the congressmanís office or home. But a manager who runs several Subway franchises owned by Fleming told TPM he has video that proves Husain is wrong about what happened that day. The manager declined to make that public.

Of course we never get all the FACTS from the Race-Baiting left.

Husain said he called police. Shreveport police told KTBS-TV that employees also called.

"They saw actions being displayed by Mr. Husain that I guess made them somewhat uncomfortable," Shreveport Police spokesman Cpl. Marcus Hines said. "They advised that Mr. Husain began to curse them, I believe that was the case, and at that point they called the police."

The council said police were unjustified in patting down Husain for weapons when they arrive.

Muslim is a follower of Islam and not a race. Muslims can be of any race.

P.S. From your own story: "But a manager who runs several Subway franchises owned by Fleming told TPM he has video that proves Husain is wrong about what happened that day."

Damned bigoted Republicans.
No comment on you own stupidity about calling Muslim a race or that it is his and his wife word against the store workers? Even if what he said is true, you think a Subway worker represents the GOP by proxy?
