If you voted for Trump, you did restaurants a favor! In a time when Liberals want $31,000 bus boys and bar-backs, you’d think restaurants would be thanking Trump supporters.
That’s not the case for Cafe 8 1/2. This Hawaiian restaurant posted a sign that reads:
“If you voted for Trump you cannot eat here! No Nazis!”
The restaurant is owned by Robert and Jali Warner, and amounts to little more than a publicity stunt, given the very Liberal politics of Hawaii.
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.
Jali Warner added:
“Robert just wants to express how much he doesn’t like Trump,” Jali said. “If people take it personally or it hurts them, we cannot help. That’s why we say they have [a] choice if they want to come or not come. We don’t force them.”
She said three people called to complain about the sign when it first went up, “that’s it.”
“We don’t want to create trouble,” Jali said. “There is enough trouble in the world.”
Sure, the Warners didn’t want to create trouble. But they did want to create business.
Hating Trump or anything deemed Republican or Conservatives is Leftists’ favorite pastime. If you live in a Liberal enclave, then showcase your vitriol against the true Americans, and voila, you get patrons.
These businesses rarely last, even in their Liberal Utopias. They eventually shut themselves down, as their Liberal policies implode on themselves.
The fact is a true restaurateur doesn’t care who patronizes his or her establishment. Their joy comes in the food. Watching as diners lavish each succulent morsel. Your “politics” is convincing people that your fare is the best around. Unless you are a Liberal.
The Warners’ philosophy has the consistency of Michael Moore’s gym routine.
And what of those Nazis?
To her credit, Jali Warner said she didn’t intend for anyone to take the sign personally. (after all, when isn’t it appropriate to call people Nazis?).
Don’t worry Jali, the only Millennial snowflakes are on the Left. And yes, if you offended them, they would sob between sips of an iced-grande-half-sweet-no-fat vanilla latte with soy.
As 8 1/2 proves, Liberals do not seek tolerance. In effect Liberals teach, “Conform, or else!” They attempt to force everyone to conform to their ideologies. The problem occurs when dogma meets capitalism, as people vote with their feet.
We certainly know of three people (the one’s the Warners say complained) who likely won’t be going back to 8 1/2. I suspect there are others who won’t bother to let them know.
We can hope that restaurants across the country follow Cafe 8 1/2’s model, and install signs that let us know their politics. Capitalism will take over from there. Sooner or later Liberals will learn that limiting your clientele means limiting your profits. They will also learn that their views are not as widely accepted as they seem to think.
Half of the country just voted for Trump, and I suspect a lot more wanted to. Whether or not Cafe 8 1/2 loses half its business remains to be seen. Nevertheless, The Warners made a bonehead move.
It’s clear to me that the Warners want a trophy; recognition for standing up to the man. That trophy won’t come. Not this time; and not for a long time.
