Hawaii Restaurant Bans Trump Voters: "You Cannot Eat Here! No Nazis."

Tyler Durden's picture

Honolulu's Cafe 8 1/2 would like for you to know that if you voted for Trump then, (1) you're not welcome in their establishment and (2) you're likely a Nazi.  The tiny "eclectic mom-and-pop restaurant" is drawing a lot of attention after posting the following bright yellow sign in their window:

"If you voted for Trump you cannot eat here! No Nazis."



The sign obviously rattled some Trump supporters who told Fox News the message "is discriminatory, and harkens back to the 'racist and hate-filled' days before statehood."

“It's childish and very unprofessional,” she said in an email. “… The restaurant owner doesn't have to worry ... I will not be stepping foot in that establishment.”


Willes Lee, former chairman of the Hawaii Republican Party and now president of National Federation of Republican Assemblies, told FoxNews.com the sign is discriminatory, and harkens back to “racist and hate-filled” days before statehood.


“Remember when Filipinos couldn't go in certain places, or Japanese wouldn't be allowed [in] many homes? And, it didn't matter who they voted for,” said Lee, who is of Japanese descent.


“People should be able to get food without hearing a political message,” one apparent former customer wrote on Yelp. “I will never go back.”

Apparently, so many people lashed out at the sign on Yelp that the administrators had to post the following "Active Cleanup Alert" to notify everyone that they would be joining other Silicon Valley companies in censoring unsavory comments from Trump supporters.

Yelp Notice


Not terribly surprisingly, the restaurant was founded by a couple formerly hailing from the liberal bastion of San Francisco.  But don't worry, one owner confirmed to the Honolulu Star-Advertiser that even if you're wearing a Trump shirt they "don’t put anything different [in] your food"...which we think is Hawaiian for "we spit in your food excessively."

According to the Honolulu Star-Advertiser, the café was founded by Robert Warner, a former hair stylist for Vidal Sassoon in San Francisco and former restaurateur in Seattle, along with his wife Jali.


Reached for comment Tuesday, Jali downplayed the sign's supposed ban. She told FoxNews.com the restaurant is not actually asking customers whether they voted for President-elect Trump, and said even if they see a customer with a Trump shirt, “we don’t put anything different [in] your food.”


“Robert just wants to express how much he doesn’t like Trump,” Jali said. “If people take it personally or it hurts them, we cannot help. That’s why we say they have [a] choice if they want to come or not come. We don’t force them.”

Nothing like punishing 50% of the population which you deem to be intolerant by practicing some intolerance of your own.

Don't sit in that bus seat - it's not for Trump voters

Imagine if a restaurant would have put up an equivalent sign:

If you voted for Obama
you cannot eat here!

No niggers.

Next will be if you "look like" a Trump supporter... You know what I mean, whitey.

That is already implied...


Short, lighter colored hair and complexion, clean cut, politely dressed and well-mannered.    That right there will get you either the stink-eye or the boot, both...

"The restaurant owner doesn't have to worry ... I will not be stepping foot in that establishment."

That is the correct response.

Business will be boomin three months into his failings

No.Fifth.Turning's picture

Brillant!  He just got $3M in free advertising and every liberal in Hawaii will be lined up.  Every conservative will be too just to say as your leaving, "I'm a Trump voter."  Bravo to the owner; he'll be rolling in the dough because as we know, everything in life is about the money.

Not to mention his sagacity in recognizing evil when he sees it.

Especially as Trump just sided with thieving, genocidal Israelis who are steling land not belonging to them.

Understandable- after all, the Nazis bombed Pearl Harbor.......

I hate Nazis, especially San Fran Nazis......

Classy job on the sign, BTW-  if this is any indication to their attention to detail, I'd hate to eat their food.....

Someone should sue this lowlife business.

Dont you buffoons claim Obama already magically fixed the economy?  So "3 months into his failings" you do realize we'll still be under the policies of Obama, right?  Trump doesn't get a budget for another whole year.

This sets a precedent: If this is tolerable, then so is this, "No wedding cakes for homos". You can NOT have it both ways, "progressives".

peddling-fiction's picture

If the owner only knew that O'Mama's team financed Hitler and cooperated with the Nazis, just to make sure that they left Germany to populate the barren Promised Land.

And the good Jews were left behind as an added bonus point.

It would be very sad if that establishment was struck by a bolt of conservative lightning at 3:am in the morning and burned to the ground.....just saying.....

"Intolerance will absolutely NOT be tolerated."

... or something

FUNNY  How abut the guy who got a DWI for dinking Coffee?

Homosexuals are a specially protected class.  Political parties aren't.  Instead of 'I can't support your wedding because you are gay' try, 'what do you think of Trump?' or some equally selective political litmus test.

Pickleton's picture

And those people got MASSIVE fines and punitive damage penalties they should already be suing over.  They've clearly been denied equal treatment under the law.

Let them eat cake...just not at my table.

Dick Gazinia's picture

Yeah but let some baker refuse to make a cake for a couple of rump-rangers and the world goes nuts.

cheka's picture

they're okay...until they refuse to make cakes for gays

Go into the restaurant, order a huge meal with drinks, announce you voted for Trump, and leave without paying

Pure Evil's picture

Best to leave before the food arrives as you can be arrested for "theft of services".

Would also help if you can run real well.

Being Hawaii, best thing to do is bring in a cockroach and scream out loud that you found it in the food.


Don't mean to be a Debbie Downer since you're idea is a good one, but if you leave without paying......

FX223's picture

Okay that is the best suggestion ^^^


Tall Tom's picture





Actually I think that we boycott all restaurants as they do tamper with the food, especially one hour before closing or shift change.


There is nothing wrong with home cooked meals.


Withdraw from unnecessary business and reduce your tax contributions. STARVE THE BEAST.


Of course most won't as they enjoy their tax enslavement and shackles.

As a believer in private property and free speech, I would defend these libtards' right to do exactly what they did.

As long as their Statist tendencies don't devolve to the point where I am forced to eat at their establishment, like they force me at gunpoint to buy insurance.

El Vaquero's picture

Sure, I'd be up in arms if the state tried to punish them for putting that sign up, but I also would refuse to give them one single penny of business.  The asshole says that he's making it clear how much he hates Trump by attacking the people who voted for him, i.e. by claiming that he hates Trump voters. 

Pure Evil's picture

Nah, the best way to get back at the is to grab a bunch of Trump voters, go in, order food, and once its delivered have everyone announce they voted for Trump.

If they kick you out then you're off the hook to pay, if not, just chow down, pay up, give the servers huge tips and announce you'll be back tomorrow with more Trump voters.

Trump voters should swamp that restaurant.

Why be offended cause some libtard puts up a stupid sign in the window.

The left couldn't stop Trump, so why should it stop the people that voted for him.

Dancing Disraeli's picture

Agreed. Freedom of association.

Urban Redneck's picture

No.  The correct response I to hire a lawyer to pursue a pursue a civil case, while simultaneously filing a criminal complaint with the local police department, and giving the faggots who run the restaurant the full gay wedding cake treatment, until they're bankrupt.

zhandax's picture

I am not likely to be in Hawaii in the next 12 months but I have read reviews in Yelp recently. That shit just ended. Starve the bitches.

yogibear's picture

Time to boycott Yelp, faceboob and Google to let them know they can't get away with pushing communist leftist dialogue and censoring conservatives.

I'm taking it out on the whole island, was planning a vacation there. Not anymore..... I will not spend my money in any liberal bastions. You want to isolate half the population, well so be it bitchez.....

FX223's picture

Fuck yea...I'm in FL with wife and kids spending my money and the kids point out the Trump bumper stickers and we all give thumbs up.

Antifaschistische's picture

but the point is the hypocrisy.   

We get whateverphobic shoved down our throats just because we don't want men (who wish they were a woman) using the bathrooms with our daughters.    

We are told we are "homo"phobic if we reject the suggestion that our son's should "experiment" with other boys.  

We're zenophobic because we actually have an interest in preserving American culture and not turning America into Northern Mexico, Eastern India or DoubleNorthWestern Africa.

Yet, the the most judging and intolerant people on the planet show their true colors when someone presents a dissenting opinion.   It's amazing.  We need a name for these snowflakes.  Manaphobes.

Other correct responses include superglueing the locks at night, a brick through the window, a brick through the window followed by a molotov, identifying the staff and owners homes and cars and using a baseball bat to redecorate and throwing paint or shit over patrons of that establishment.

Racism, bigotry, xenophobia wrapped up into one little note. Thanks SJW. 

Handful of Dust's picture

These Marxists support the loser (Obama) who sent millions of American jobs overseas to China, etc and support his (and Hillary's) bloody wars bombing hospitals and wedding parties. These left wing extremists are blood thirsty war mongers in sheeps clothing. Michael Moore is another good example.

mkkby's picture

How to fight this -- put something nasty in your food and then sue.  A few people do that and they will be visited by the health inspectors.  Then out of business.

Checkmate bitches.

To Hell In A Handbasket's picture

Come on lets be honest here, they're only taking a leaf out of the right-wing intolerant book and adding to it. Now cue the down votes for telling the truth, as tolerance is displayed in bucket loads on ZH, even by myself </sarc>
