Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene accused an Atlanta gastropub of “segregation” after announcing it would only provide personal service to people who have been vaccinated.
The pub announced the policy amid a spike in coronavirus cases – including after experiencing ‘a few positive cases’ amid the spike in the highly permeable Delta variant.
The Georgian Republican, who was kicked out of her House committee duties over previous comments about 9/11 conspiracy theories, Accusing Nancy Pelosi of treason and blaming lasers from space for California wildfires, compared the bar’s policy to racial segregation in a Sunday post.
Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene has attacked an Atlanta beer bar after it posted a ‘NO VAX, NO SERVICE’ sign. It says it has had positive coronavirus hits this month
“This is called segregation,” she tweeted, adding an image that read “NO VAX, NO SERVICE.”
The legislator asked her more than 400,000 followers in a post: ‘Are you going to test everyone at the door for flu, strep throat, stomach flu, colds, meningitis, AIDS, venereal diseases, Hep A, Hep C, staff? [sic] infections, athlete’s foot, pink eye, croup, bronchitis, ringworm, scabies or other infections?’
Located in a city with a prominent role in the civil rights movement, the pub does not shy away from politics and posts ‘Cuisine for a Cause’ and other events.
On July 17, it wrote on its Facebook page: ‘Unfortunately, we had some positive covid tests this weekend and will temporarily suspend all indoor meals. Terrace will be open next to pickup and delivery. Thank you for your continued support. This sucks.’
“If you’re fully vaccinated, welcome!” wrote the establishment. But until you are vaccinated, ‘Please do not enter our establishment’ it said,

Then the East Atlanta Village establishment put up the “NO VAX, NO SERVICE” sign on the front door.
The move came amid bitter conflict across the country over mask mandates and lawsuits over private companies imposing mandates on clients. The Biden administration announced Monday that the Department of Veterans Affairs has required its doctors and health workers to be vaccinated after experiencing multiple deaths.
“We didn’t mean to offend anyone,” the bar’s co-owner, Armando Celentano, told the local radio station. WAGA.
‘We are absolutely not in favor of mandatory vaccinations. We strongly believe that this is no different than a no shirt, no shoes, no service policy.’
The lawmaker was convicted after she compared Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s mask mandate for the House to the horrors of the Holocaust.
You know, we can look back to a time in history where people were told to wear a gold star, and they were absolutely treated like second-class citizens, so much so that they were put on trains and taken to gas chambers in Nazi Germany. said Green. “And this is exactly the kind of abuse Nancy Pelosi is talking about.”
She apologized for the comments in June and visited the Holocaust Museum in Washington. She also has infectious disease expert Dr. Anthony Fauci attacked, although her clash with Pelosi contributed to fundraising and her brand awareness.
Georgia has experienced a spike in coronavirus cases among unvaccinated people. In the past two weeks, the state has seen an increase in the number of cases of more than 200 percent.
