Costco revoked the membership of a Texas woman who refused to wear a face burka while shopping.
Angela Sladovnik said she had shopped at Costco for much of last year without wearing a face covering. Towards the end of the year, she was approached by two managers who instructed her to cover up.
“I responded that I had a medical exemption,” she wrote on my Facebook page. “They said they didn’t care.”
“They handed me a face shield and said wear it or leave,” she wrote. “I put the shield on.”
A few weeks ago she noticed a number of customers shopping without wearing the face burka. When she inquired, the customers told her they all had medical exemptions.
“So, I took mine off,” she wrote.
She was then approached by staffers at the self check-out line who demanded that she cover up. When she declined, a manager swiped his badge across the screen and told her that her membership had been revoked.
She received a letter and a refund check which she also posted on my page.
“We acknowledge that you are opposed to our requirement, we understand your position, and we are sorry you disagree with our policy,” one of the Costco brown shirts wrote. “We do, however, require each member to abide by our policies and regret having to cancel your membership over our face covering requirement.”
In fairness, Costco has a right to determine the conduct of their members. My recommendation would be to shop at a grocery store that’s not run by Nazi brown shirts.
“Do you think you’re still living in a free country,” Ms. Sladovnik wrote on my Facebook page. “Think again. What’s next? Every time you wear a mask and comply…you are giving up your God given rights and your freedoms.”
“If this continues, next will be, no vaccine equals no entrance, no groceries, no travel, no rights,” she wrote.
Well, Ms. Sladovnik does make a mighty compelling argument.
