Hawaii Restaurant Bans Trump Voters: “You Cannot Eat Here! No Nazis.”

Honolulu’s Cafe 8 1/2 would like for you to know that if you voted for Trump then, (1) you’re not welcome in their establishment and (2) you’re likely a Nazi.  The tiny “eclectic mom-and-pop restaurant” is drawing a lot of attention after posting the following bright yellow sign in their window:

“If you voted for Trump you cannot eat here! No Nazis.”

The sign obviously rattled some Trump supporters who told Fox News the message is discriminatory, and harkens back to the ‘racist and hate-filled’ days before statehood.”

“It’s childish and very unprofessional,” she said in an email. “… The restaurant owner doesn’t have to worry … I will not be stepping foot in that establishment.”

 

Willes Lee, former chairman of the Hawaii Republican Party and now president of National Federation of Republican Assemblies, told FoxNews.com the sign is discriminatory, and harkens back to “racist and hate-filled” days before statehood.

 

“Remember when Filipinos couldn’t go in certain places, or Japanese wouldn’t be allowed [in] many homes? And, it didn’t matter who they voted for,” said Lee, who is of Japanese descent.

 

“People should be able to get food without hearing a political message,” one apparent former customer wrote on Yelp. “I will never go back.”

Apparently, so many people lashed out at the sign on Yelp that the administrators had to post the following “Active Cleanup Alert” to notify everyone that they would be joining other Silicon Valley companies in censoring unsavory comments from Trump supporters.

Not terribly surprisingly, the restaurant was founded by a couple formerly hailing from the liberal bastion of San Francisco.  But don’t worry, one owner confirmed to the Honolulu Star-Advertiser that even if you’re wearing a Trump shirt they “don’t put anything different [in] your food”…which we think is Hawaiian for “we spit in your food excessively.”

According to the Honolulu Star-Advertiser, the café was founded by Robert Warner, a former hair stylist for Vidal Sassoon in San Francisco and former restaurateur in Seattle, along with his wife Jali.

 

Reached for comment Tuesday, Jali downplayed the sign’s supposed ban. She told FoxNews.com the restaurant is not actually asking customers whether they voted for President-elect Trump, and said even if they see a customer with a Trump shirt, “we don’t put anything different [in] your food.”

 

“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.”

Nothing like punishing 50% of the population which you deem to be intolerant by practicing some intolerance of your own.

Graham said Wednesday that “Russia is trying to break the back of democracies all around the world,” adding that Latvia is “constantly bombarded” with “Russian aggression and interference.”
Graham told a news conference that “it is now time for Russia to understand — enough is enough.”
