In the minds of leftists, Christian bakers aren't allowed to refuse to make a cake for a same-sex wedding, but it's perfectly acceptable for a café to refuse to service Donald Trump supporters.
A handmade sign reads on the front door of Honolulu’s Café 8½ that "no Nazis," a.k.a Trump supporters, visit their establishment.
"If you voted for Trump you cannot eat here! No Nazis," reads the sign.
Responses online have been mixed in favor and opposed. "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" wrote one reviewer. " People should be able to get food without hearing a political message," wrote another.
Willes Lee, whom Fox News reported to be of Japanese descent and president of the National Federation of Republican Assemblies, said the sign recalls a "racist and hate-filled" time in Hawaii when people faced discrimination long before it became a state in 1960.
"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," he said.
The owners, Robert Warner and his wife Jali, told Fox News, "We don’t put anything different [in Trump supporters'] food" and just felt the need to make a political statement.
"Robert just wants to express how much he doesn’t like Trump," said Jali. "If people take it personally or it hurts them, we cannot help it. That’s why we say they have [a] choice if they want to come or not come. We don’t force them."
"We don’t want to create trouble. There is enough trouble in the world," she added.
According to regular patrons, Warner has a history of tantrums like "throwing pots and pans," "telling off customers," and “hanging not-so-friendly reminders on butcher paper for his customers to read."
