I wonder if the 7-11 clerk is part of the Religion Of Peace?

REDMOND, Wash. — A local soldier, whose story sparked a firestorm of nationwide anger on social media, says a Redmond convenience store clerk denied him service, after he showed his military ID.

Collin Brown –- who is a reservist in the Army – was purchasing cigarettes for his fiancé, and a Slurpee last Wednesday, at the 7-Eleven on West Lake Sammamish Parkway. Brown put his U.S. military ID on the counter, when the cashier asked for his proof of age. The ID clearly has his date of birth on the back and serves as legal ID.

“She said, ‘You’re in the military?’ I said, ‘Yes,’” Brown said. “She said, ‘I can’t serve you.'” Honestly, I was in shock. I asked, ‘Are you serious?’ “She looked at me like she was offended,” he said.

Brown says he asked the clerk why there was a problem as he pulled out his driver’s license to back up his military ID.
