Maine Propane Dealer Refuses to Sell Gas to Trump Supporters as Record-Breaking Freeze Hits

So, let me get this straight.

If I’m a Christian baker and my morals won’t allow me to bake you a gay wedding cake, you and the state can fine me and possibly cause me to lose my business through a civil lawsuit alleging damages.

But if I’m that same Christian baker and I voted for Donald Trump, then a propane dealer is within his rights to refuse to sell me gas that I need to keep me and my family warm during a record-breaking cold wave.

Something isn’t right here.

Press Herald

On the coldest day of the season, a Skowhegan-area propane dealer has a pointed message for would-be customers.

“If you voted for Donald Trump for President, I will no longer be delivering your gas, please find someone else,” is the message left for customers that call Turner LP Gas Service, on Canaan Road in Skowhegan.

The message goes on to say that the cost of gas remains $110 a bottle, payment on delivery. A voicemail message left at Turner LP Gas Service was not returned.

Lifezette goes on to note that other sellers have taken similar action.

Mr. Turner isn’t the first person to refuse to do business with Trump voters — in late November, Mathew Blanchfield, CEO of an Albuquerque, New Mexico-based marketing firm, issued a statement saying he would no longer work with Trump supporters.

But unlike Mr. Blanchfield who lives in a county that voted solidly for Hillary Clinton, Mr. Turner lives in a county that overwhelmingly supported Trump. Trump won Somerset County, Maine — in which Skowhegan is located — 57.73 percent to Hillary Clinton’s 35 percent.

In Skowhegan specifically, where Clinton performed better than Somerset county at large, Trump still received over 50 percent of the vote and had a ten point lead on Clinton, according to rough figures published on Skowhegan’s town website. Mr. Turner is apparently so distraught over Trump’s win he is willing alienate more than half of his community and possibly sacrifice his livelihood.

This woman believes Michael Turner is in the wrong. What do you think? Should it be legal to refuse to do business with people for their political/racial/sexual beliefs?

  2. One cannot be for the freedom if the Baker and be against the freedom of LP dealer. Perhaps the freedom not to sell a business licence to the LP dealer? 🙂

  3. I have no issue with this. He can refuse to sell it, and people can refuse to buy it from him. He goes out of business which opens the opportunity for another smart cookie to capitalize on this. This is the beauty of America. We are free to be as idiotic as we choose to be and pay a price for it.

    • I do have an issue with this because I live in the Western Mountains of Maine and we are currently experiencing record low temperatures. I can’t speak as to the laws of this horrid state as they continue to defy logic however in many states his refusal would be considered criminal endangerment. This is a poor state; jobs scarce and pay minimal. Some people cannot afford to stock up on heat sources mid fall whether it be wood, oil or propane . These are the very ones who are going to be directly affected by this needle dick who has gone on record and called Trump the anti-christ. Listening to his condescending ayuh Maine accent on his recording saying ever so confidently that he won’t sell you fuel makes me want to throw up.
      And now, the proper way to say Ayuh!

      • My fellow evil YT, Texas will welcome you with open arms. Plus, we do not have to deal with the insane winters, and jobs and guns are plentiful.

  4. Any Democrat voter who is a good and decent human being would be outraged by this action, and would refuse to buy Propane from this man.
    The keystone of a successful democracy is the secret ballot. Anyone who buys gas form this guy gives up their secrecy and thus declares they voted Democrat.
    Thus, this nutty businessman loses all Trump voters and some Democrat voters also.
    Maybe he should take his business to Mexico, or Canada the land of the (((draft dodging runaway hippies))).

  5. Score another win for the (((tribe))). Thirty years ago a propane dealer in Maine would refuse to sell propane to lefty commie libturds

    Now there are town in Maine that are 80-90% somalian and other dark continent invaders and the white citizens applaud this as wonderful

    The worlds just plainly gone insane, although libturds would swear on a stack of korans and satanic bibles that the world has finally become a sane, warm and loving place

    • Refusing to sell propane, batteries, matches, lighters, timers, benzene, kerosene, nitrates, pliers, box cutters, fireworks, nails, black powder, maps etc to Botulisms is race hate. Selling them is aiding and abetting terrorism. What is a shop keeper to do?

  6. “But if I’m that same Christian baker and I voted for Donald Trump, then a propane dealer is within his rights to refuse to sell me gas, that I need to keep me and my family warm during a record-breaking cold wave.”

    Confiscate all property, guns foodstuff’s and seeds.
    Outlaw me as an Enemy of the State, Make me witness the freezing and starvation to death of my people and progeny.

    Elevate the lowest of filth and dreck.
