Citing all Trump supporters as ‘Nazis,’ a cafe in President Obama’s home state of Hawaii is banning all those who voted for the President-elect from their premises.
It is a move that had it been reversed – a restaurant banning anybody who voted for Obama – would have been decried as flat-out racist.
Because it’s Trump supporters being discriminated against, it will likely go relatively unnoticed in Obama’s America.
This is outrageous!
Via Fox News:
Honolulu’s Café 8 ½ gets rave reviews on Yelp for its “Radiatore Verde” and “Italian stir fry,” among other popular dishes at the eclectic mom-and-pop restaurant – but the response to its new ‘policy’ barring pro-Trump patrons has been decidedly more mixed.
A bright yellow, handmade sign posted on the restaurant’s front glass door declares: “If you voted for Trump you cannot eat here! No Nazis.”
A photo of the sign was shared with FoxNews.com. One also is proudly posted on the café’s Facebook page, and was “liked” by some 40 people.
“…The next time you’re in Honolulu, eat lunch here, not only are they on the right side of things, the food is delicious and reasonable,” one Facebook user wrote next to the photo.
Others aren’t so charmed.
“I think they’re racist bigots for discriminating against conservatives,” reads one review on the cafe’s Facebook page.
Another voiced the effect such a ridiculous ban will have on business – “Posting a politically motivated and discriminatory poster in your restaurant, and alienating 1/3 of your potential customer base is priceless.”
President of National Federation of Republican Assemblies, Willes Lee, said the restaurant’s discriminatory practices harken back to “racist and hate-filled” days before statehood.
Imagine had this been a bakery with a sign on their front door which read ‘If you’re gay you cannot eat here’ – Something that isn’t even vaguely comparable to what some Christian bakeries came close to doing.
But just imagine for the sake of argument.
A business that even attempted to do that would be shut down by authorities and the owners’ lives would be ruined.
Instead, you’ll barely here a peep out of the media on this. Where is the outrage?
