One restaurant owner in Florida says she is through with serving anyone who supports President Joe Biden.
On the front door of The DeBary Diner in DeBary, Florida is a sign that reads, “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 restaurant’s owner, Angie Ugarte, said, “It was the only thing I felt like I could do.”
The sign went up on the same day a suicide bomber took the lives of 13 U.S. service members in Afghanistan.
“I was just angry. I was just let down,” Ugarte said. “I felt like one of those mothers, or wives, or sisters who were gonna get that knock on the door.”
Ugarte says that a lot of her regular customers are veterans and she has been serving them since her restaurant’s doors opened almost five years ago. One wall of her business is dedicated to honoring men and women who serve.
Ugarte blames Biden for the recent deaths in Afghanistan.
“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,” Ugarte said.
Ugarte talked about some of the customer reactions.
“I’ve had people come to the door and look at it and turn around and walk away,” she said. “And I’ve had people come into the kitchen while I’m cooking and say, ‘Hey, I love your sign.”
How long will the sign remain?
Ugarte says until the ordeal in Afghanistan is over for the U.S., noting that Americans are still stranded in the country.
