On the heels of the Bloomsburg Fair drawing public outcry over images of a man in a dunk tank impersonating Pennsylvania Secretary of Health Rachel Levine, a Tioga County tavern is apologizing for a menu item that mocked Levine, a transgender woman.
Some Tioga County residents posted a photo of the menu page of the Crossroad Tavern in Morris Township on social media, at least one to denounce it.
The menu said one of the items, Levine balls, was named after the health secretary and referenced a part of the male anatomy.
Over the weekend, the Crossroads Tavern posted an apology on its Facebook page:
Last week a menu was printed for the tavern that was in poor taste, the apology from the owner indicates. Although I did not print the menu, I am at fault for allowing it to be displayed at my tavern. It was in bad taste and I never meant to offend anyone. I am sorry if I allowed it. I am sorry Dr. Levine and anyone else that was offended. Anyone that knows me, knows that I am not a judgmental person. Once again, I am sorry for my lack of judgement.
The tavern owners could not be reached for comment.
I was disgusted, said Allison Maslar, a Tioga County teacher who saw the page last week and posted a shot of it. It just made me sick to my stomach that in Tioga County, PA, we live with this low-level hate and ignorance. Sometimes I just have to stand up and say that it is wrong.
WETM reports the tavern owner, whose name was not included in the report, spoke with the station but would not go on camera. He told WETM he never meant to hurt anyone and that he wanted to put this in the past, reports indicate.
I posted this for several reasons, Maslar said. I wanted local people to know that this happened. I want the people that I know and love that are not straight or cis to know that I love them and appreciate them and that I do not tolerate hate, that I stand up for their right to exist just the way they are.
This comes shortly after the Bloomsburg Fair posted on its Facebook page about a dunk tank that was part of an effort to raise money for fire companies. It included photos of someone in a dress and wig, meant to resemble Levine. The fair held a news conference last week at which fair officials apologized to Levine.
Gov. Tom Wolf issued a statement defending Levine after the fair post, saying Levine is committed to keeping Pennsylvanians safe and healthy, even those who direct hate-fueled attacks at her.
Department of Health Deputy Press Secretary Maggi Mumma said in a statement Monday about the menu, Dr. Levine always serves at the pleasure of the governor and will continue to serve under his leadership as Secretary of Health. She remains laser-focused on protecting the health and well-being of Pennsylvanians as we navigate this ongoing pandemic.
She said Levine has no further comment.
Levine made history by becoming the highest-ranked transgender state official when Wolf appointed her health secretary in 2015.
Levine Nuts would be a truthful statement.
Please ping me with articles of interest.
FReepmail me to be added to the list.
The Left will not be mocked...
Just ask the slope shouldered mediocrity attempting to pass as a governor and his ugly ‘sister’.
Seriously, if you can’t take a little lampooning when it’s deservered (and it is) then get the F out!
Some remarks regarding Levines Balls
I was disgusted, said Allison Maslar, a Tioga County teacher
It just made me sick to my stomach...
I thought it would be a tranny sandwich
A veggie burger
So leave woman.
Beans and weenies, chopped up
He will never be a woman and I do not have to pretend with him that he is.
Hey Allison, I'm disgusted that you are more disgusted over the menu item then the freak who is the health secretary. I'm also disgusted that you are educating children you sick bitch.
Yes, of course, it would be a perpetually offended teacher.
Normal people would be sick to their stomach by a man so mentally ill he wears dresses and pretends he's a woman. They would say it's wrong that such a mentally ill person was entrusted by the governor, as the head of health care for your state. But Ms. Maslar is not normal. She is a Leftist tool who wants to force you to pretend Levine is normal. And she teaches children.
Levine Balls? Taste like hairy nuts.
Give me the old fashioned Matzoh Balls any time.
I wish the menu also had “Wu Han Bat Soup” on it. Tastes just like chicken soup plus wings and claws.
How about Nancy Pelosi’s special meal, “Mafia Meat in Gumba Sauce”?
And Maxine Waters’ specialty, “Pigs In a Blanket” sausage?
Oh, forgot, Adam Schiff’s favorite, “Pam-covered Porking Butt”.
“I am not a judgmental person. Once again, I am sorry for my lack of judgement.
#5. Is a tranny sandwich made with “Munch and Crunch” popcorn?
Yup. Be wary of those without a sense of humor.
How could anyone look at that thing and take them seriously? I know I couldn’t.
Why do these cucks always apologize?
Stop apologizing cucks!
Everyone and everything on the left needs to be constantly and mercilessly ridiculed.
I’ll find my mask when Dr. Richard finds his dick.
