A Florida seafood restaurant owner was so fed up with what he’d seen that he got off the fence for the first time to share exactly how he felt by posting four blunt phrases on the sign outside his business.
Not concerned with who he would offend, he got more than he expected when certain people saw it, but the cowboy had a surprise for them.
William “Bill” Davis has been in the business of serving the people of Sarasota the freshest seafood around and providing friendly customer service for years at Barnacle Bill’s Seafood Restaurant. Being in a public business, Bill said he’s always kept his opinions to himself but couldn’t do it anymore after seeing what Democrats were trying to do.
The conservative didn’t want any liberals telling him how to live, so he put a special message on his marquee. To say that it didn’t go over well with those who have different political views is a bit of an understatement. When those who oppose his sentiments tried to retaliate, it backfired on them.
Letting everyone in town know exactly where he stands, Bill simply stated on his marquee, “NRA MEMBER, CONCEALED CARRY OK, NOT A DEPLORABLE, VOTE TRUMP.”
Backlash almost immediately ensued from liberal customers who were sick that they had eaten at such a “far-right” restaurant.
However, this is not really a surprising response from people with opposing political views. It was similar to the reactions from conservatives when Target announced their transgender-friendly bathroom policy.
Many vowed never to step foot in Target ever again. If you don’t like what a company is doing, take your money elsewhere. It makes sense.
Bill Davis told WFLA that he got over a thousand e-mails and calls from customers who professed their distaste for him as a person and what he stands for as they announced that they’ll never be back.
