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.
