Michigander attempts to get rich quick by banning gay customers, encouraging weapons in his place of business, and then asking for financial contributions to protect his family from the evil liberal monsters who are out to get him

Brian-Klawiter

A few weeks ago, when the owners of that pizza shop in Indiana made the $842,442 decision to withhold peperoni rolls from ravenous gay newlyweds, I knew that we’d see others jumping into the fray. I even suggested doing it myself, laying out a plan to open a homophobic pizza shop of my own, with the intention of investing the inevitable contributions that that I’d receive in the construction of the world’s largest gay entertainment complex. Well, I didn’t act fast enough, and now another Michigan entrepreneur has beaten me to the Get Rich by Hating Gays gravy train… It’s being reported today that Brian Klawiter, who runs an auto repair shop in Grandville, Michigan called DieselTec, after having posted on Facebook that he would no longer serve visibly homosexual customers, is now asking for the financial support of his fellow Christians… Here’s the initial Facebook comment that set the whole thing in motion.

Notice how, like a pro, he not only says he’ll deny service to gays, but also that he’ll give discounts to people with guns… Klawiter, clearly a pro, wasn’t going to leave anything to chance. If the homophobes were tapped out, after having contributed to the gay-hating pizza shop in Indiana, he wanted to be sure that he gave the paranoid “they’re coming for our guns” demographic something that they could rally behind… I just wish that I’d thought of it first.

As for why Klawiter is asking for financial support, he says he’s been the recipient of multiple death threats. “Listen up folks, If you have an opposing view to mine that IS OK,” said Klawiter, “what is NOT OK is threats to kill me, my family, and friends; threats to burn down my shop and my home. I will stand firm on my views and will not back down, however, because of the ridiculous backlash I am requesting any supporters of ours that would be willing to stand with us to help secure my home and business.”

Not a bad plan for a guy that, just a little while ago, was serving time in jail for assault and battery, is it?

[update: It would appear as though Klawiter’s Go Fund Me page has been taken down, at least for the time being.]

    I don’t know about death threats, but his Facebook page is now the most fabulously gay page on the internet.

    I have never been sure if homosexuality is right or wrong until the guy at Dieseltec argued:

    “I will put your car together with all bolts and no nuts and you will see how that works”.

    Now I know.

    I assume I will only receive the firearm discount, if I flash my gun at the point of sale.

    It’s clearly not going how he thought that it would.

    A Fortune 500 company that fought Indiana’s religious freedom law is telling a Grandville auto shop owner his business must stop using its logo following the Michigan man’s anti-gay Facebook post.

    Engine manufacturer Cummins said on social media Thursday that it is in the process of notifying Dieseltec to stop using its logo on the repair shop’s website.

    This would be easily covered under the religious freedom act. Mr. Klawiter cannot in good conscience be forced to work on a truck if he suspects that truck may be used as a conveyance to bring two or more individuals with matching genitalia together for the purposes of doing something that, like cutting one’s hair and eating shellfish, is referred to as being sinful in the Bible.

    I always wondered why we gay folks are so SCARRY to everyone and what rights of the non-gays we were going to threaten or take away. Frankly, I just want to fix my own diesel and those of like-minded diesel owners that need fixing.
