Star Wars shop owner, Vietnam vet under fire after argument with transgendered city official

In a viral public confrontation, a transgender council member confronted the owner of a Washington Star Wars shop over a sign that reads “If you are born with a dick, you are not a chick.”

Aberdeen, Washington, City Councilmember Tiesa Meskis confronted Sucher & Sons Star Wars Shop owner Don Sucher Wednesday over Sucher’s sign, which sits outside the front of his store, according to King5 News.

“Everybody loves it,” Sucher can be heard telling Meskis in the video. “They take pictures of it. They post it. 9/10 customers love it.”

“You know what, that’s bullshit,” Meskis responds.

“No, what you’re spouting is bullshit,” Sucher tells the transgender council member, who responds, “No it’s not. Trans women are women, sir, that sign is bullshit.”

  • In a viral public confrontation, a transgender councilmember confronted the owner of a Washington Star Wars shop over a sign that reads “If you are born with a dick, you are not a chick.”
  • “Everybody loves it,” Sucher & Sons Star Wars Shop owner Don Sucher can be heard telling city council member Tiesa Meskis in the video. “They take pictures of it. They post it. 9/10 customers love it.”
  • “We’re going to show them this side of you,” Meskis says, apparently referring to the video of their altercation, “Hopefully we can wake you up. Let’s wake you up to the truth sir.”

The video shows Sucher and Meskis continue to argue before Sucher tells Meskis, “You know what, nobody confronts your ass. That’s the problem. If they say, what the fuck is going on…Do you know how many people you have embarrassed in city hall? They have to tolerate this shit?”

“Every time some bull shit like this happens, my sales go up because people are wanting this,” Sucher told the transgender council member.

“Really? We’re going to show them this side of you,” Meskis says, referring to the video, “Hopefully we can wake you up. Let’s wake you up to the truth sir.”

The public confrontation continues for over five minutes as Meskis repeatedly yells “Trans women are women” and Sucher repeatedly yells “you’re nuts.” “You’re not a woman,” he told the councilmember.

“I don’t care what they do, but don’t come in here and complain to me about stuff. I have free speech,” Sucher told KING 5 on Thursday.

“I don’t give a [expletive] about feelings anymore,” Sucher told the publication. “I went to Vietnam to fight for all this [expletive]. Do you think I care about some [expletive] feeling? Absolutely not!”

Meskis told the publication that though Sucher has a right to say what he wants, Meskis wanted to tell him that his comments were hurtful.

“We are people,” Meskis told King 5. “We are who we are and we all want to be accepted in our community.”

Meskis plans to demonstrate outside the store on Saturday morning with supporters, according to KING5.

Neither Meskis nor Sucher immediately responded to requests for comment from the Daily Caller News Foundation, but Sucher & Sons Star Wars Shop is quickly garnering hundreds of positive Google reviews praising Sucher and his store.
