Florida Restaurant Who Tells Biden Voters They aren’t Welcome Runs Out Of Food Due To Massive Growth In Customers
A Florida diner who posted a sign telling Biden supporters that they were not welcome to take their business “elsewhere’ was forced to close for a short time due to the surge of customers; they could not keep up with the demand.
DeBary Diner, located in DeBary, Florida, owned by Angie Ugarte, had to close its doors on September 2 after running out of food due to the surge in customers and demand for their business. According to West Volusia Beacon, they posted their sign after Biden’s inept withdrawal from Afghanistan, telling his supporters they were no longer welcome to eat there.
“If you voted for and continue to support and stand behind the worthless, inept and corrupt administration currently inhabiting the White House that is complicit in the death of our servicemen and women in Afghanistan, please take your business elsewhere,” the sign said in response to the death of 13 U.S. service members in a suicide bombing in Kabul, Afghanistan during the United States’ withdrawal from the country.
The owner was livid:
“It was the only thing I felt like I could do,” said the restaurant’s owner, Angie Ugarte.
Ugarte says she posted the message the same day 13 service members were killed in Afghanistan.
“I was just angry. I was just let down. I felt like one of those mothers, or wives, or sisters who were gonna get that knock on the door,” she explained.
“I’ve gotten so many people calling me from all over the world, from Europe, trying to purchase meals for veterans, which I still haven’t been able to organize,” Ugarte told the Daytona Beach News-Journal. “I think that the veterans will be fed for the rest of the year at the rate I’m getting donations.”
In addition to people dissatisfied with the current regime in power, veterans poured in to visit the diner and express their support for what the dinner was standing for.
“All these people said, ‘We’ve got to come over here and thank Angie.’ We wanted to come over and thank you,” Rod Phillips, a decorated Vietnam veteran, told Ugarte as he clutched her hand. “Being a Vietnam veteran and combat-wounded, I don’t wish war on anybody. But there is a proper time and place to get out of there.”
The Liberals and some Democrats were not happy with this stance; Ugarte said she has received “death threats and bomb threats,” but the favorable reactions and patron support matched their words with orders and cash donations.
Despite the left trying to make this a political statement, Ugarte insists that if Trump had done the same, she would have posted the same letter against him while still in office.
Thankfully the suppliers came through for her; she was able to be reopened again on Friday.
