    Arizona restaurant closes following backlash from its pro-Trump Facebook post


    Christopher Smith and Jay Warren, the owners of Cup it Up American Grill in Tucson, posted a statement on the restaurant’s social media page last week with a list of things the two support and resent, including the president, kneeling for the anthem and late night hosts, Vice News reported.

    The post stated: "We believe in and support 100% in the following: OUR President, Always Standing for the National Anthem, repealing Obama Care…”
    Free Speech?
    Not if it makes a Democrat unhappy. Then you have Domestic Terrorism, Lefty-style.

    “We have made a decision to close our doors indefinitely as of today, Monday, October 9, 2017. The safety of our employees, and our families is of great concern and is our #1 priority at this time,” the statement said. “We would also like to extend a special thanks to our Military and First responders. Thank you all and God Bless."

    Tucson is the "Berkeley" of Arizona...

    Not like it's the first time the Leftist haters have tried to shut down a restaurant there...

      They realized that they messed up.

      “Our decision to bring our personal political beliefs into a business forum is regretful, and for this we apologize to all,” the pair’s statement read.

      Earlier Saturday, Smith had toyed with the idea of indefinitely closing the restaurant, located in the bustling Main Gate district near the UA, in light of the widespread condemnation for the politically charged post.
      Not sure if it did actually close.

                You presented a Facebook statement and a closing statement, with nothing of any substance or impact in between, especially not one thing that verifies any sort of threat or which can be sourced to a "Democrat". BTW - Facebook is a lower rated source that the bowels of Wikipedia.

                You would be all over anyone else for that kind of rumor-mongering.

                  No, look up. Fox News, that is the source. Just didn't get it into the OP for some reason.
                  Typo, I reckon.
                  But I did correct my error, if you will look at the post directly above your own.

                  Jeez, guys, was October 15 supposed to be National Petty B.S. day, or what?

                    You have to realize, Tucson really wants to be like San Francisco or Berkeley.

                    They spent most of their street maintenance money on this fiasco:




                    And got streets like this:

                    http://www.insidetucsonbusiness.com/...9bb2963f4.html



                    Their choo choo train to nowhere tootles around downtown... all about 20 blocks of it... and over to the West entrance to the University of Arizona. It literally goes nowhere anyone who would ride a trolley wants to go. But, they have one because it's really hip and cool when you're on the Left to have a trolley system in your city.

                    The rest of the political spectrum there wasn't amused...

                      And the right wing has always done the same, with the most recent example being the athletes who have protested and have thus been subjected to a bevy of racial slurs and death threats. So what's the difference? Aside from the restaurant owners being cowards and running with their tail tucked between their legs.

                      What the owners did was just a dumb business move.

                        I didn't catch the part where the Right was threatening athletes with being shot, or car bombed, or having their homes and businesses burned down...

                        Like I pointed out, it isn't the first time Leftist groups in Tucson have threatened a business over their politics.

                          Of course you haven't, it doesn't fit your agenda. I already posted about it in the what now thread.

                          Anger and violence isn't a left or right thing, it's as American as apple pie.
