Brian Klawiter has apparently had "enough" of liberals, gays, union workers, and anyone who isn't a gun-toting, red-blooded, conservative American.
Klawiter, owner of the diesel repair shop Dieseltec in Grandville, Michigan, posted the following rant on Facebook earlier this week that is quickly on its way to becoming infamous:
Enough is enough.
Our rights as conservative Americans are being squashed more and more everyday. Apparently if you are white (or close to it), you have a job, go to church, and own a gun... That translates into racists, privileged, bigot, conspiracy theorist. Too many of us say nothing. Well, freedom of speech isn't just for Liberals, THEY are the ones that need to learn to "co-exist", THEY are the ones who need to WORK to be "equal"
Therefore, in the spirit of freedom (whats left of it) and MY right to operate MY business as I see fit:
Guns ARE allowed at DIESELTEC, so much so in fact that we will offer a discount if you bring in your gun. ("On duty" cops are excluded because thats not their gun, thats my gun bought with my money, off duty absolutely!)
I am a Christian. My company will be run in a way that reflects that. Dishonesty, thievery, immoral behavior, etc. will not be welcomed at MY place of business. (I would not hesitate to refuse service to an openly gay person or persons. Homosexuality is wrong, period. If you want to argue this fact with me then I will put your vehicle together with all bolts and no nuts and you can see how that works.)
We, as a team, work hard for whats ours. We are not protected by unions or contracts. We absolutely MUST provide our customers with a service level that would make them come back or tell their friends about us. We don't have a "right", and we are not "entitled" to our pay. We must EARN it.
I am not racists, you are for assuming I am, however, I am really quick to judge... if it acts like a duck, and quacks like a duck...
It IS a free country and I support your right to your opinion, that being said, if you don't like what I have to say I reserve that same right to tell you to go cry to your momma (cause your daddy would probably smack ya', better yet, yes, go tell your dad.)
Speaking with West Michigan's Fox 17, Klawiter elaborated on why he decided to post the pro-discrimination message:
"I made my bed I need to sleep in it. I did choose homosexuality as an example when I spoke about immoral behavior, but that's definitely become the hot button issue...I operate my life on Christian values and for me to not take that into my business I think would be hypocritical."
Klawiter added that "until there's any laws passed otherwise," he will continue to pick and choose who he does business with. Dieseltec's Facebook page can be found here.
