The owner of a Florida diner is telling President Biden supporters they’re personae non grata in the wake of the suicide bombing that killed 13 US service members in Afghanistan.
A sign posted in the window of the DeBary Diner flatly tells would-be customers to turn around if they back Biden and his administration following Thursday’s attack by ISIS-K at the Kabul airport, WOFL reported.
“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 blunt notice reads.
Angie Ugarte, who has owned the diner for five years, said she posted the sign Thursday after the suicide bombing that also killed nearly 200 Afghans. She intends to keep it up as long as Americans are stranded in Afghanistan, WOFL reported.
“It was the only thing I felt like I could do,” Ugarte told the station. “I was just angry; I was just let down. I felt like one of those mothers or wives or sisters who were going to get that knock on the door.
Ugarte said a lot of her regular customers at the diner — which boasts the “tastiest” Cuban sandwiches in town, according to its website — are military vets. An entire wall inside is devoted to service members featuring military photos, flags and other décor, video shows.
“They have coffee every morning,” Ugarte said of the local vets.
Reaction from customers, however, has been mixed, Ugarte said.
Regardless of the response it causes, Ugarte said the plain-spoken poster is there to stay for now.
America is a Great Country in which to live.
