Florida diner that told Biden supporters to eat somewhere else sells out of food, temporarily closes

Share:

DEBARY, FL – The Florida diner that gained national attention after posting a sign asking President Biden supporters to eat somewhere else wound up experiencing a surge in business following the news coverage.

So much so, that the restaurant had to close temporarily because they didn’t have enough food to accommodate the flood of orders.

It was certainly a dicey move for the DeBary Diner when the owner, Angie Ugarte, placed a sign outside of her diner telling President Biden supporters to take their business elsewhere.

The sign of course attracted mixed responses, with some issuing criticisms of the divisiveness of the sign and others ardently supporting the message from the sign.

But apparently business came flooding in, which caused Ugarte to have to temporarily close down the diner on September 2nd due to the massive influx of orders:

“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. I think that the veterans will be fed for the rest of the year at the rate I’m getting donations.”

Rod Phillips, a decorated Vietnam veteran is among those who supported Ugarte’s sign posted outside of the restaurant, saying the following about him and other community members showing up to lend their support to her establishment:

“All these people said, ‘We’ve got to come over here and thank Angie.’ We wanted to come over and thank you. 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.”

Obviously, Ugarte was not the recipient of solely warm wishes and support, saying she’d received some “death threats and bomb threats” in relation to her posted sign, but said that the good has heavily outweighed the bad.

The restaurant was able to reopen on September 3rd, according to reports.

Earlier in September, we at Law Enforcement Today covered the story of Ugarte’s sign posted outside of her restaurant. Here’s that previous report.

DEBARY, FL – The owner of a diner in DeBary, Florida, is making some waves over a recent sign posted outside of her restaurant that tells potential customers that if they “voted for and continue to support” President Biden then they should take their “business elsewhere”.

Angie Ugarte, the owner of DeBary Diner, posted a sign outside of her restaurant in late August that presents some very strong opinions regarding the current president and also her not wanting to have customers that currently support President Biden patronize her establishment.

The sign reads as follows:

“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. God bless American and God bless our soldiers”

When speaking with local news outlet FOX 35, Ugarte stated the following about what prompted her to place the sign outside the restaurant:

“It was the only thing I felt like I could do…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.”

Ugarte was referencing the 13 fallen soldiers who recently died in Kabul due to a suicide bombing carried out by ISIS-K. She’s been running the DeBary Diner for roughly five years and says that many of her regular customers are veterans.

Ugarte feels as though President Biden is to blame for the soldiers that recently passed in Kabul. Based upon her opinions on the matter, Ugarte says she doesn’t want to “be associated” with anyone who stands behind the current administration:

“If you really, really still stand behind what’s allowed this to happen and the way it happened – which was unnecessary then I really don’t want to be associated with you in any way and I certainly don’t want your business.”

The restaurant owner says that overall, the sign seems to be effective with respect to her desired outcome, saying the following:

“I’ve had people come to the door and look at it and turn around and walk away. And I’ve had people come into the kitchen while I’m cooking and say, ‘Hey, I love your sign’.”

Of course, after the news broke out online, commenters on Twitter were boasting of their outrage saying how the business won’t see a dime from them – which is ironically, what the business owner si aiming to achieve.

One Twitter user wrote:

“I like when a business lets me know who they support. Makes it easy to know who gets my $$. And, in this case, they don’t.”

Other commenters posted their support for the restaurant, with one Twitter user writing:

“I wish I could go there to eat. I would wear my shirt that says ‘Don’t blame me, I voted Trump’.”

While this move certainly has the propensity to adversely affect Ugarte’s bottom line, it appears that it is something she’s willing to sacrifice in order to stay true to her morals on the matter. Ugarte says that one every American has been extricated from Afghanistan, she’ll be taking down the sign.

Missouri gun shop refuses to sell weapons, ammo to Biden supporters: “Sorry for the inconvenience.”

(Originally published January 25th, 2021)

JEFFERSON CITY, MO– With many on the right fearing the fact that President Joe Biden’s proposed gun agenda will all but do away with the Second Amendment, the left is now complaining that those very same Second Amendment businesses are discriminating against them. 

Those who support President Biden are angry that a conservative gun shop has taken to social media to claim they will not be selling to them. 

Immediately following Joe Biden’s inauguration, Trigger Firearms & Reloading, in Jefferson City, Missouri, published a statement indicating the company will no longer sell munitions or firearms to his supporters, National File reported.

The owner of Trigger Firearms & Reloading posted his message on Facebook, saying:

“We don’t have guns or ammo for Biden supporters,” 

It went on to say:

“Sorry for the inconvenience.”

As expected, this post drew many comments from both the left and the right. One commenter, listed as Joe Shockley, who claimed to be a wealthy Democrat living in Missouri felt very insulted by the post, and commented:

I had a few grand to spend on a small backup to my Springfield XD and some other gear and ammo,”

He continued:

“Good to know you don’t want my money because I don’t want a fake billionaire reality tv star as my president.”

Another person to comment, who calls themselves, Chris Brown was clearly angry, but took a more humorous approach saying:

“That’s OK. Some of us Liberals have guns that are older than that peach fuzz you call a beard.”

Some commenters appreciated the humor in refusing to sell guns to Biden supporters, who for quite some time have supported taking guns and ammunition away from Americans.

One commenter posted:

“Bad news, you’ve lost the business of people that live in California and Michigan. How will you ever survive?”

Another individual chimed in, saying:

Funny all these crying Liberals on here, but to set the record straight. I have never heard of a Gun Business going bankrupt, from a Liberal boycott, however when Conservatives Boycott something they are done,” 

National File reported that Austin Petersen, a libertarian-leaning Republican who previously ran for U.S. Senate in Missouri, celebrated the decision on Twitter.

Petersen wrote:

“My local gun shop announced last night that they do not have any guns or ammunition available for Biden supporters,” 

He continued:

“The comment section of howling leftists is like delicious hot apple pie with ice cream.”

The most confusing part about this situation, is why Democrats feel slighted at all.

When social media outlets banned former President Donald Trump, liberal Democrats cheered and applauded the media outlets for “doing the right thing”, however, a gun owner put a ban on selling to Biden supporters, and all of a sudden secluding people is not alright.
