The Florida diner that banned Biden supporters following the bombing in Kabul had to temporarily shutter its doors, but not for the reason you may think.
“We will be closed tomorrow, Thursday, to give us an opportunity to get our kitchen ready for the weekend. We have literally run out of food,” the DeBary Diner announced on Facebook late Wednesday.
Thank you all for the overwhelming support we have received and we apologize for not being able to get back to all of…
But even with it closed, customers still flocked to the diner Thursday just to thank owner Angie Ugarte for taking a stand against the current administration.
“Ugarte, standing outside her strip mall diner before noon on Thursday, was surrounded by a gathering of people thanking her for making her stand, even though the customers would have to go elsewhere to get their B.L.T.s or Cuban sandwiches,” the Daytona Beach News-Journal reported.
“[P]eople kept showing up, wanting to show Ugarte support. One woman, who declined to give her name, posed in front of the diner door holding a Trump 2020 banner. Other supporters said they came from Hunter’s Creek near Kissimmee, Monticello just east of Tallahassee, and Daytona Beach,” the paper added.
One of the supporters was Rod Phillips, a member of the Vietnam Veterans of America Florida State Council.
“We wanted to come over here and thank you personally,” he reportedly told Ugarte.
Speaking with the press, he added that he felt it was important to take a stand.
“I respect the presidency of the United States, but this could have been handled much better, much better. Being a Vietnam veteran and combat-wounded, I don’t wish war on anybody. But there is a proper time and place to get out of there. One American is too many to be left behind enemy lines,” he said.
Ugarte and her diner became international stars after she posted a sign on her front door banning Biden supporters from her restaurant.

“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 sign read.
She posted the sign in anger and exasperation following the preventable bombing at the airport in Kabul that’d left 13 U.S. service members deceased.
“It was the only thing I felt like I could do. I was just angry. I was just let down. I felt like one of those mothers, or wives, or sisters who were gonna get that knock on the door,” she told local media at the time.
She never expected it to go viral.
“Never in a million years did I expect [this response]. I just know I’m one pissed off American and I know there’s a lot more of us out there,” she told the News-Journal.
She cautioned that she’d be responding the exact same way right now had the bombing occurred under former President Donald Trump, though she believes it wouldn’t have occurred under his studious watch.
“But he wouldn’t have done that, I don’t think, because he always shown he cares about the troops. I appreciate that,” she said.

“This isn’t about being Democrat or being Republican,” she continued regardless. “If you honestly voted for Biden and still think that he didn’t mess this up completely … I have a conscience and I don’t want your business. I don’t want to make my living off of people who have blood on their hands.”
It’s personal to her because she reportedly has a son-in-law who served in Iraq.
Ugarte’s stand against President Joe Biden’s demonstrable apathy and incompetence has naturally triggered outrage from his far-left sycophants.
“I’ve gotten death threats, bomb threats,” she told local station WOFL.
Meanwhile, her diner’s Yelp page is now littered with negative reviews from Biden sycophants screeching in unbridled rage.
“This is a non-American, non-patriotic business who doesn’t support United States democratic citizens. If you’re young and dumb and a trump supporter I’m sure you’ll get along with the owner. They discriminate against people who support the us President,” one review from someone who lives on the other side of the country reads.
But Ugarte’s ban is neither unconstitutional nor illegal.
“Freedom of political affiliation is a First Amendment right that protects Americans from the government interference with their political choices. … Thus, private businesses can discriminate in ways that would be unconstitutional if the government did the same thing,” Stetson University law professor Ciara Torres-Spelliscy explained to the News-Journal.
As for allowing 13 service members, some of them barely out of high school, to perish overseas, while this may not necessarily be unconstitutional or illegal, it could very well wind up being quite impeachable.
