debary diner sign
BEACON PHOTO/AL EVERSON THE SIGN SEEN ‘ROUND THE WORLD — Since she put up this sign a few days ago, Angie Ugarte, owner of the DeBary Diner, said her business has surged, so much so that the restaurant ran out of food. The sign has drawn viral attention from around the world. Several news websites and channels have picked up the story and given the small eatery attention Ugarte probably never imagined.

A small restaurant in DeBary has become a tourist attraction and conversation piece, after its owner posted a sign that advises some would-be customers who support President Joe Biden to “take your business elsewhere.”

“I’m getting calls from all over the world,” Angie Ugarte, owner of the DeBary Diner said, after she arrived at work late today, Sept. 2. At her diner in the Winn-Dixie plaza at the corner of Highbanks Road and U.S. Highway 17-92, she found well-wishers, including several veterans, waiting to meet her and order a meal.

NEW FRIENDS — Angie Ugarte, owner of the DeBary Diner, meets and chats with Ken and Jan Fortner outside the restaurant that was closed while awaiting a food delivery, after running out of food the day before. Business at the DeBary Diner surged, Ugarte said. The DeBary eatery garnered worldwide attention after posting a sign advising supporters of the Biden administration to go away. Ugarte said she posted the sign Aug. 27 in anger over the loss of 13 American military personnel at the airport in Kabul. A suicide bomber inflicted the American casualties as the U.S. was withdrawing from Afghanistan. The Fortners, who live in DeBary, and others on hand, said they had come to the restaurant to show their support for Ugarte.

The DeBary Diner was closed Sept. 2 because the shop had run out of food the day before and was awaiting a delivery. Word of Ugarte and her restaurant spread like wildfire, as news websites and television networks picked up her story, drawing attention to a possible gathering spot for those with conservative and pro-military sentiments.

“All these people said, ‘We’ve got to come over here and thank Angie.’ We wanted to come over and thank you,” Rod Phillips told Ugarte, as he clutched her hand.

Phillips is a decorated Vietnam War veteran.

SPEAKING FOR VETERANS — At left, Rod Phillips, of the Vietnam Veterans of America, expresses thanks to Angie Ugarte, for her show of patriotism and support for those who serve in the U.S. military. Ugarte said she has family members who have served in the military. Phillips received a Purple Heart for a combat wound in Vietnam.

A note on the door next to the controversial sign promised patrons the DeBary Diner would reopen Friday, Sept. 3.

Ugarte said her traffic has increased markedly after she placed on the front door a sign denouncing the Biden administration and its handling of the U.S. withdrawal from Afghanistan.

Ugarte said she was upset and angry about the Aug. 26 suicide bombing that claimed the lives of 13 American military personnel at the Kabul airport, and she blames Biden for not preventing the American deaths.

“I don’t want to make my living off people who have blood on their hands,” Ugarte said when she arrived late Thursday morning. “If you sincerely support Biden, open your eyes and hold your president accountable.”

Ugarte, who said she put up the sign the day after the bombing, said she is not acting from partisanship.

“If Trump were president now, that same sign would be there,” she said.

As she was speaking, a stranger approached and handed her $20, which she at first refused to accept.

“You’re appreciated more than you know,” the man told her as he walked away.

Ugarte said she has received some “death threats and bomb threats,” but the reactions have mostly been favorable — and patrons are matching their words with food orders and cash.

Not everyone was supportive. Online, reviews of DeBary Diner increased exponentially, and some of them from detractors tended toward the absurd, including this review posted on Facebook: “When I walked in they had goats running loose that were peeing and pooping on the floor. All of the staff were touching food with open pus oozing sores on their hands.”

Those voting with their dining-out cash outweighed the detractors, Ugarte said.

“This is our slow season, but yesterday, it was all day long,” she told the crowd, thanking them for their support. “My hours have been incredibly erratic for the last few days.”

“We live in Astor, and we just had to come and see this,” Wayne Loeser said, as he kept his daughter, Heidi, 3, close by.

A woman named Lisa said she had driven from her home in Windermere to visit the DeBary Diner, only to find it closed.

Brian Meddaugh and his wife, Rosemeadow, also were disappointed about the DeBary Diner’s closing for the day. Rosemeadow Meddaugh said she herself has been a victim of the political polarization in the country today, alleging she and a Trump-support organization were banned from Facebook for their post-election activities.

“My personal page and my group — I was de-platformed because I went to the protest [of the outcome of the 2020 election] in Orlando,” she said. “After I posted a video of the protest, when I got back to my car, I was off Facebook,” she said.

      • Because Politicians like Pelosi and Schiff and Nadler purposely lied and tried to set up former President Trump. He was voted in by the people and they took their votes and valued them as trash, by making every turn difficult and now with their hypocrisy being caught not wearing masks etc. It was insane what schiff, and pelosi and others accused Trump of. He wasn’t found guilty but now Biden is seen on Television lying through his teeth. Says 1 thing then changes the following. He is a dirtbag and a lowlife. Always was. Look at gas Prices. Prices for food everything??He said the middle class wasn’t going to suffer???? Look at the xlpipeline??? Layoffs of American workers ,,thousands, Open Southern Border spreading covid and unaccompanied Children???? Unaccounted for too. Many can’t be accounted for and it is possible that they were handed off accidently to child smugglers???? Heard that on the news. Afghanistan. He is Horrible and should pay a price.

        • “He was voted in by the people” Um no, Trump lost by 3 million and then 7 million, he was voted in by the electoral college. And Trump lost because he makes up lies about non-existent voter fraud. In a couple of weeks, the fake outrage over afganistan will disappear, Reagan got 200+ americans killed and he and Bush were re-elected despite Beirut and Iran Contra. This is just Trump supporters who need to find anything they can on Biden, just like they tried with Obama. And as for this Restaurant claiming they would do the same under Trump, what’s stopping them? Trump got thousands of americans killed ridiculing masks, including Herman Cain

        • Biden is also a racist but it’s the puppet of Obama
          Biden can barely speak and several times when he did say something….he made remarks that certain people don’t know how to access the internet to apply for assistance…. wow

      • Margaret, read your history…there is NOTHING new under the sun. American has been through periods of hatred/divisiveness in the past. Sadly too many are blind, deceived and have no clue what’s happening. We have allowed government to rule and guide us and that is NOT how America was created/set up…We the People are supposed to be responsible and too many relinquished their responsibilities to the government. We MUST remain vigilant, engaged and involved in the affairs of our city, county, state and nation. And lastly we must depend on God to get us out of this mess and trust Him above all as we move forward to take America back.

      • The hate started on Election Day November 2016 and has not stopped yet ….. U never voted for Obama but , I never went around calling him a bigot for attending a Racist church for 20 yrs

      • …..and for that, you can thank Biden’s boss from 2008-2016. He started the whole dividing ‘thing’. He’s not doing to bad for being a member of the “oppressed” people, eh?

    • Trump is a hateful moron with a silver spoon shoved up his ***, but she has the right to deny service if she wants to, just the same way any food service company could deny her orders, or any sensible business owner could leave Florida because it is a sea level cesspool of ignorance and idiots who think traffic lights are a suggestion, and masks are unpatriotic as the miasma of death clouds their tiny brains.

        • I am not afraid! The idiot biden is a train wreck. PRESIDENT TRUMP HAD A GOOD PLAN. IT HAD CONDITIONS THAT THE TALIBAN HAD TO FOLLOW!! BIDEN THREW IT OUT AND MADE HIS OWN PLAN THAT GAVE THE TALIBAN EVERYTHING THEY WANTED WITH NO CONDITIONS. He LEFT Americans unprotected in a country taken over by terrorists. And to show how badly he screwed up he has to send 5000 troops back to rescue those he LEFT behind. In doing so he murdered 13 servicemen and women. And since the airport is now under Taliban control, that is almost impossible! Those stranded Americans are now hostages and a ransom will be demanded and that moron, like obummer, will pay it! 23 of those hostages are school age children from California! He left ammunition and weapons and military helicopters containing classified, top secret material. He gave the Taliban the names of the remaining Americans. The lives of those Americans and those who died are all on him and he has blood on his hands and morons like you who voted for him are just as guilty. You all have blood on your hands! BTW, the terrorist leaders in charge were all released by obummer. This is biden’s 2nd Benghazi!

  1. Is someone going to tell her?

    Wonder if she had a sign when Trump was in office over 60 military were murdered.

    Saying it’s not politics is bull$#. She literally will be closed in a few months from alienating 60% of her customers over politics.
    Ignorance is bliss but capitalism is still capitalism.

    • You lefties like capitalism when it is convenient for you, and socialism when stupidity hits your brains. Just name one soldier that died because of President Trump’s negligent and cowardly unorganized withdraw of troops. President Trump never made our soldiers run for their lives.

          • The hate started on Election Day November 2016 and has not stopped yet ….. U never voted for Obama but , I never went around calling him a bigot for attending a Racist church for 20 yrs

      • @Mike That comment makes no sense, socialism allows for some elements of the economy to be capitalist. To pick and choose what is free market and what is government controlled is the very essence of socialism, not to mention conservatives loving capitalism but supporting socialism such as social security, medicare, medicaid, and bank bailouts. And let me name one soldier that died because of Trump. Around 10,000 to 400,000 dead americans thanks to Trump ridiculing mask mandates, hosting super spreaders that killed Herman Cain, mocking Fauci and not informing the public of Covid. But it is funny how you say “Unorganized withdraw of troops” making the box so specific because if you simply said “Name one time trump got a soldier killed” We’d have to go over the huge list of covid deaths.

        Republicans have lost the last 7 out of 8 elections in the popular vote in the last 3 decades….But its ok because on restaurant is barring Biden supporters, that definitely makes up losing 7 out of 8 times.

        • You don’t know jack…. You spout off accusations which is typical of people who can’t provide facts and are afraid of debating. That is why your side uses antifa, BLM and the media to shut down free speech. That is also how they continue and strengthen the indoctrination of their supporters. If speech was not silenced the truth would come out and braindead people like yourself would have to admit they are wrong. The UTOPIA you think the left is trying to create is not for you or I but for the satanic greedy elite. We will become cheap disposable labor which is why they flood our borders. Votes to stay in power and cheap labor for their corporate benefactors. Not so? That is how people turn their countries into Russia, Cuba, Vietnam, Venezuela etc because they belief as you do! Patriots do not!

      • (The Alabama Republican Party held a rally Saturday night 08/21/2021 starring former President Donald Trump (Thank God), who touted his “good relationship” with the Taliban.)
        Disabled Vet so yes some of us died because of his good relationship with the taliban, so know what your talking about before you open your mouth. Have a good day.

      • Trump left my comrades to die in Syria. He referred to our men and women that died in WW2 losers. He disrespected fighter pilot and POW survivor John McCain. Keep defending your hero though. But remember to practice what you preach. Did you serve? Yeah….that’s what I thought.

    • so……you are complicit with this administration’s actions in Afghanistan? you’re ok with the 90billion in arms left behind, the women being raped, even the military dogs that were left behind to be tortured? You thinking tit for tat is going to make it better? bye felicia

      • No I’m not ok with how we did the withdraw, and it hurts me so bad I contacted the VA to see my psychiatrist for an appointment on August 18, 2021. Do you know when I got my appointment September 30, 2021, glad I don’t need serious help.

    • Bye.. don’t let the door knob hit you where the good Lord split you , you won’t be missed and that wasn’t trumps fault Trump didn’t just pull out and leave them abandoned and it’s not just our military it’s the Afghanistan civilians that helped us Joe Biden is a traitor by Felicia

    • haha you poor braindead liberal, it was ok when the red rooster in virginia asked Trump ( the best president ever) to leave the restaurant right all you liberals that support this demented child molester have blood in your hands and a black bitter soul

      • @JC This is what happens when Republicans lose the last 7 out of 8 presidential elections in popular vote in the last 30 years. If you can’t win elections, just insult people. Donald Trump got thousands of americans killed by ridiculing mask mandates and social distancing. Every president gets americans killed from Reagan to Bush to Obama to Trump. This isn’t new.

        • Carter, the pandemic is a scam. Yes people are dying but are they dying because of covid? The left are proven liars and that includes Faucci. Your side put covid patients in nursing homes while Trump gave them hospital ships. Your side demands we accept the science yet ignores it when they claim there are more than two sexes and that the life in the womb is not a life. Besides who says your side should be believed since they are know liars and have an agenda. Their agenda is called POWER by any and all mean. Your side counts deaths as covid caused when in fact they ignore preexisting conditions. In addition, their counting method does their best to make conditions look worse than they really are. Counting the same patients tested each week as new cases. The truth, which your side hates, is being blocked because if it got out no one would obey the ridiculous mandates the left demands yet ignores themselves. Wake up the real enemy is the corporate elite who control the puppets in office. Not so? Remember the corporate downsizing, reengineering, layoffs etc? Why would our representatives ignore millions of our jobs being sent to communist countries? They ignore the threat to our economy while our businesses propped up communist economies. We fought to stop communism yet here we strengthen them by building their economy while using their sweatshops. Could it be the corporate elite are now afraid of China and want to bring jobs back to Europe and the U.S. and that one reason why our representatives are flooding our borders with only people fleeing non communist countries. By flooding our country labor rates will plummet and jobs will become scarce and management will dictate pay and terms. The other reason is that these so called asylum seekers make good democrat voters!i Trump is not OUR enemy, corporate oligarchs and their political puppets are!

      • I think the government has us all so mixed up in blind we don’t know what they’re actually even doing. Most of the Americans are extremely uneducated when it comes to government and political issues and the government that we have right now is using social media to cause hate and divide the country. The Coronavirus was Ali plan from our government to purge the nation and instill fear in every American. We do not have a government that cares about us at all they’re supposed to be working FOR the people. We are all very passionate whether you are liberal or not about what we believe in and what we don’t. But one side should not push there wants or needs on the other side. If this country were ran right we wouldn’t have to be in fear of Our Lives or our soldiers lives. The truth is the person is a human being. And not one single human being ever has been without faults. We should be holding each other up building each other up even if we’re all different and we like different things we should not be forcing what we like or don’t like on the other side ever! Also the DeBary Diner will have plenty of supporters with or without the left side.

    • No she won’t. She will get more of America’s patriots that support small business and love our country. At least she has not suggested for patriots to attack stupid democrats…I remember maxi pad to the liberal/ democrats to get in our face and attack us and hen they organized antifas . Oh and as for the capital I believe the democrats set up their own attack. That black cop shot that white girl her hands were behind her back and there were cops standing near her. He feared for his life he claimed the democrats have done nothing to him. Look what they did during the destruction of cities burning down business and destroying police stations. Stealing from stores. No accountably. George Floyd under the influence of drugs they said killed him and the scum bag politicians took a knee and attacked the police and want them all out. I think war is coming into our country

  2. Trump did not lose 13 service members because of inept stupidity!
    DeBary votes Red by more than 60% and now she has the support for people going out of there way to become new customers.
    It works the other way also with “WOKE” Nike,Facebook,Twitter Amazon etc..ext..alienating over 40% of their customers but still making lots of money(not from me!!)

  3. Patriotism is amazing. I have been a customer for years. The few customers you lost ,well you gained more customers
    For standing up for our heros. I am a pastry chef I will induce my self next time I am there. I was there Wednesday and it was crazy loved the fun and excitement it was contagious!

  4. I was there for lunch today, couldn’t get in !!! Lots of folks waiting for a table…. I’ll be there again tomorrow, maybe earlier, and try again!!! Food has always been good……

    • Typical Libtarded reply. Got nothing to contribute so will swing some insults at the people that pay your way go back to your moms basement

  5. The current administration (if you can call it that) has decimated America from within … in every way possible…and with open free-for-all borders and now open free invitation Taliban tickets accessing our entire country, decimating from abroad. This administration has enacted every single destructive directive that they were claiming President Trump did. Still, Biden cannot make his own decisions and take charge…still riding President Trump’s wave.. blames everything on his “predecessor”😂😂🤣😂🤣…what an inept so-called leader. Bullies suddenly “don’t care” about 20,000 kids in cages and the thousands of children that have died trying to reach the border and cross over…why is AOC Not crying at the fence.. hmmm🤔…speaking of crossing-over, democrats are evacuating their “crime family” party in DROVES🔥. This is THE most destructive, divisive, embarrassing, disastrous, and murderous anti-american president in the history of the U.S. FB, Twitter, and YouTube have all blocked tens of millions of President Trump Supporters…but Biden’s psychotic sore winners still have the cabangas to come on here and bellyache over being canceled by ONE tiny restaurant in a tiny obscure town😂🤣😂🤣😂🤣 How fickle is that🤪, they can’t handle one litttle tiny cancelation🤣🤣🤣. I guess those bullies never heard of freedom and free speech. Hey, how about they ALL try “getting blocked by all social media and losing their jobs and freedoms just because of their political stance”…never in our history has this disrespect to WTP happened…Republicans never pulled such a dirty trick when they were in control…democrats were always free to speak whatever they wanted on all social media, because THIS IS A FREE COUNTRY (well, it WAS)…but, this muzzling of TAX PAYING citizens DOES happen under communist leadership! Biden is not done with us yet. 3+ more years to finish the job…but, bullies must remember the rule of 360…”they Will meet the SAME people ON THEIR WAY DOWN as the ones they STEPPED-ON AND DISRESPECTED ON THEIR WAY UP”🍿. Finally, shame on the media for depriving WTP of both sides of a story and for filling the minds of unwary weak-minded viewers with cherry-picked agenda-driven warped news that WTP “trusted” would be truthful and “fair” and ultimately turning citizens against each other. Shameful and So Very Sad.💔 ~ Love Always, Karma🧐

    • You cannot be serious… the only thing SHAMEFUL are all these lies you just posted, and what’s so sad is EVERYTHING you wrote described TRUMP when he was president, this man literally almost turned the whole United States against one another, the evilness of it all when you Republicans stormed the capitol, beating, abusing, killing people, people died because yall couldn’t accept the fact that yall lost, who is a bigger bully than him, causing riots, making 1 race think they were better than the next, lies, deceit, who the heck crying about not being able to eat at that diner, n[body CRYS MORE THAN YOU GUYS, and you got blocked from social media because you were bullies, because you thought you could say what you want, because you had no RESPECT, TRUMP doesn’t have a wave baby, justa bunch of SALTWATER, with tadpoles like you trying to make waves, with all the lies and stories that decent people got sense not to believe…. the only believers he has ARE PEOPLE WHO THINK AND ACT LIKE HIM … and that’s what’s SHAMEFUL, the only president in history that condoned people storming a CAPITOL BUILDING and stood behind them…. the shame of it all

        • What’s all this go back to the basement crap. Everybody knows that the majority of Republican voters are white males with no college degree. You know the kind of live in their mom’s basement. Trump knew he was going to lose. That’s why he started the rigging lie. His ego couldn’t take it. Lost the midterms, lost the Senate, lost the presidency.!! Suck it losers!

      • You demorats are a menace to the american society. you have no brains. you know that your president have mental issues and you still push him to become the leader of this country. you killed the 13 marines too. disgusting…

      • What a filthy minded, lying little coward you are, or are you paid to make up these insulting comments to Americans with common sense! Like the MSM you twist and turn facts-only person killed on Jan 6th was an unarmed woman shot by a security guard. As far as burning, looting, shootings/killings for WEEKS that was the summer before by BLM & ANTIFA, how conveniently you forget!!! Joe and the Ho need to GO, what an insult at the Mexican border, letting thousands of illegal criminals into innocent American towns, the sheer lack of basic planning to stop preventable loss of American lives, handing over millions of sophisticated military equipment to our sworn enemies (9/11 ring a bell?), lies after lies after lies from supporting the middle class to COVID. But hey, trying to run our country from some basement in Delaware, now that takes talent!

      • Exposing the Liberals lies is not dividing the country it’s shaking up fallow ground! There has been an infiltration from various presidents in the past who are very liberal and wanted to make sure that socialism was put into place. President Trump going ahead and exposing the liberals’ dirty dealings doesn’t mean he was dividing the country. He was exposing the evilness that the Liberals have put into place. They didn’t like it so they did whatever they could to sabotage him and make him look like dirt. At least he has enough fortitude to make sure that he doesn’t back down.

      • Before Trump was in office the nation was turning against each. Attacking people with red hats or Trump signs in their yard. Hillary supporters acted like senseless animals.

      • Yolanda it’s a real shame our great country is being attacked from within. You would think that ordinary sensible people would be able to see what is really going on but thanks to a number of factors we are divided. Until recently we had freedom and rights. We were not divided and our economy was not in trouble and our country was secure. The trouble started with Obama pointing out racism before the facts were in. First there were several episodes involving blacks and whites then it jumped to the police. Again, it was one sided accusations without proof or unbiased investigation. After condemning all police as racist this accusation then went to Trump and his supporters. Last it went to the 1619 project CRT. None of this was Trumps fault. In fact he tried to help African Americans. The truth be known it was not ordinary people that oppressed or owned slaves. It was always the dems that wanted slavery, Jim Crowe laws and the KKK. The dems were against civil rights and favor Margret Sangers abortion which she want to target black babies. I don’t believe you or I or the majority of Americans are racist. I think we are all being played against each other for the benefit of the rich and powerful who want to rip up our Constitution and Bill of Rights. They will then create the UTOPIA they want for themselves while we will become their slaves. I truly believe they (global elite) want us divided so they can easily take over our country. Everything they do is aimed at destroying our rights and security. They send our jobs to communist countries, continue to spend like drunken sailors and keep us uninformed and divided. I pray we will all come together and stop them before it is too late. May God watch over us all.

    • And all that kids in cages and being separated from their moms when coming across the borders wasn’t done by trump it was started by Obama and Obama is actually still running the show through Biden and the current government. Biden is nothing but a puppet to Obama and what he wants the country to become.

  6. You’d think the newspaper would report the numbers, but here’s an easily verified source of service members who died under Trump. “If you’re only looking at the past year and a half, from July 2019 to January 2021, then the total is 23 service members killed in the war in Afghanistan, according to data from the Defense Casualty Analysis System.”

  7. These people who are angry at her sign (which she has the right to post) where you angry when Republicans and their families were kicked out of restaurants or assaulted. You think only the left has a right to your opinion. Sorry the right does too and if you can honestly say you support this administration hope you have food stocked because your gonna need it!!

  8. She rocks and she knows she is supported by all the right people the people that back to US military in the United States of America not people that Kneel at the flag but stand for and behind it and kneel only at the cross.

  9. Don’t nobody cry more than REPUBLICANS, since all you people are so patriotic, where was your patriotism when all those thugs stormed the capitol, and beat police, brought in bombs and guns, climbed the building like monkeys, .. and listened to the head thug (trump) tell them to go do it and they did… Biden isn’t the only president military soldiers have died under, it’s all apart of war, apart of their job…
    I think she is very IGNORANT, who runs a buisness like that, she ran out of food, because she never had that much buisness ANYWAYS, and the food is horrible, some people will eat anything, and the SO CALLED VETERANS need to be ashamed of themselves, you know what consists of doing your job, you knew what you signed on for when you were there, OUR PRESIDENT is the most disrespected president ever BECAUSE HE IS HONEST, HE’S FOR THE PEOPLE, AND HE IS CLEANING UP SOME OF TRUMPS MESS, some of you people love Trump because HE REPRESENTS THE TRASH SOME OF YOU ARE, … WHY SHE ACTING LIKE , SHE HAS THE ONLY DINER IN THE WORLD, IT’S A PRIVILEGE NOT TO STEP foot in her establishment, they are not clean, I ate there once and COULD NOT WAIT TO NEVER GO BACK…. SOME AMERICANS ARE NOTHING BUT FOLLOWERS AND COWARDS,

    • yet here u r. you know when the shit sack is perforated and you smell metal n flesh…its someones loved one being caught in an explosive…most live…i can tell you who didnt…it was sad….so when someone defends us soldiers with their life at stake…it means more than any civilian will know

    • Yolanda, Military personnel do know that they are putting their lives on the line when they sign up(which is one of the things that make them special) however they do not sign up to have their lives foolishly put in jeopardy by INEPT Leadership!!! I am a Republican and I am not proud of the way a very small percentage of us acted at the Capital on Jan.6th but the FACTS are the only person shot and killed that day was an unarmed female veteran at the hands of a capital police officer, there was no bombs set off or fires lit or looting like we saw during the whole summer of 2020 from Democrats, along with the rioting,looting,fire lightings and assaults on civilians and police officers including the doors of a Police Precinct being blocked and lit a blaze attempting to murder every officer in the building so if you want to talk about thugs I can go on endlessly about the Democrats!! If you are actually going to try and defend Biden the dumbest most inept and embarrassing President we have ever had and if you are going to try and justify 13 service members being killed because of inept leadership then you might actually be dumber than the President you voted for!!
      It will be an absolutely pleasure not seeing you at the diner!!

    • Yolanda you are seriously delusional and need help. Your Biden couldn’t organize a clear or independent thought and is only Pres because of voter massive fraud! Your side in very powerful thanks to the oligarchs and their political puppets. Make no mistake, all this racism, homophobia, xenephobia, gay rights push, the green new deal, flooding our borders is all being done to keep us divided. The real agenda has nothing to do with hatred or compassion. It’s about turning our country and Europe into labor pools for the elite who are the real rulers of our countries! They will reveil their true intent once they gain complete control. They my freedom and rights, along with yours, will disappear. The Utopia they promise is for themselves not you or I. Wake up before you loose it all for all of us!

  10. Restaurants should stick to serving good food with excellent service. If you want to serve your community in a political way you should run for office and serve the entire community.

  11. This woman is one of those wilfully ignorant people who choose to follow only what is politically expedient for her. Why didn’t she bother putting up a sign when el trumpo incited the republican mob at the Capitol who injured and killed several police officers? Maybe the lives of those police officers weren’t worth the ink and paper to her.

    • Do you really think most Americans are that ignorant to believe the lies from someone like you??? On Jan 6th there were no bombs, setting businesses ablaze, setting police precincts and police cars on fire, shooting and killing innocent people trying to protect their businesses (an honest way to make a living), not just collecting welfare
      checks (it’s a family tradition). This woman has the right to express her opinions (freedom of speech), no matter how much to you are “offended” (who cares?). Many Americans are really fed up by the way this great country is being so tormented by the likes of Joe & the Ho who also pander to the likes of you!

  12. […] The DeBary diner, located in DeBary, Florida and owned byAngie Ugarte, was closed on September 2 after running out of food following a surge in demand after a sign was posted on the front door slamming Biden’s chaotic Afghanistan withdrawal and telling his supporters to take their business somewhere else, according to the West Volusia Beacon. […]

    • WOW it’s amazing how a bunch of idiots from both sides cannot talk to each other in a conversation without insults. To help you people with the facts Netflix has a documentary called Turning Point
      911/War on Terrorisom it covers everything from the Reagan era until the present and then you will know the facts and how I feel after watching I am a US Navy vet very disgusted with this country.

  47. I am SO GLAD I no longer live in FL! 50+ years ago I registered as a Republican because there were so few in the state that Republican primary elections were non-existent, but, it was a very nice place to live. Now, the state is RED and it has become a threat to one’s safety to live there due to mean-spirited, inhumane governmental policies imposed by an insensitive, power-hungry would-be dictator who, like his idol, serves only his own interests over those of (all) his constituents. It is stunning to see so many ignorant people support so many blatant lies about virtually everything except facts!

  51. Looks like Qrump has his own Taliban here..
    He had 4 years to get out of Afghanistan and did not do it. Biden did it in 7 months and we lost service personnel that were most likely part of the 5,000 prisoners that were released there when Qrump negotiated that with his Taliban buddies.

  53. This is quite ridiculous. To assume that all who voted for and support Biden are bad people is a bit harsh and a prime example of just how divided this country is. I wonder if it ever crossed her mind that maybe some of the people she is denying the privilege of eating at her diner might be veterans themselves? Or that maybe 1 or many of the 13 servicemen and women voted for Biden?
    Either she’s for veterans or she’s not, it’s not reasonable to be for only veterans of one political party and disaffect those who have opposing political views. The members of our military show up and they do their jobs and they do them damn well with dignity, courage, and honor, regardless of who is in the White House.
    I can’t help but feel that this is about politics, right now in Florida being anti-Biden is the hip thing to do, just ask Governor Desantis. This owner reserves the right to alienate her customers and this has been a boon for her, she even admitted it’s the slow season. She probably needs the money more than she’s leading on. Food for thought, if the owner of the diner cared so much about the 13 fallen servicemen and women in Afghanistan (whom I doubt she knows the names of without Googling) then maybe she would be donating the proceeds from her newly found fame to the family members of those we lost to help care for them?
    A candlelight vigil would have been a meaningful gesture, but that wouldn’t have been able to attract the flock of President Biden-haters with open purses and wallets.
    This behavior is just driving a wedge even further between us. This is the UNITED States of America, isn’t anyone else tired of all this infighting?

  57. Why are so many people being idiots. I would never eat a place that hates anyone that does not think like they do. This is why we live in a country that respects.all. Guess that it does not apply to them.

  58. Why do you think they did this so they get business. They have been closing due to short staff problems. Pull a stupid political stunt and wala we are busy. Typical Trump Humper move. Honestly hope you go out of business.

  59. Hope she goes out of business. Funny how these mindless trumpers forget how Regean murdered over 200 slerping marines in Beirut. MARINES WITH NO LIVE AMMO!!!

  60. No way to run a business. It’s a restaurant. Serve food and leave the politics out! I wouldn’t eat there simply because of this! You just don’t do it!

  61. I’m very proud of you Angie. It gives me a great feeling to see people standing up and voicing their convictions. I have been to the diner many times and love the food and the service. I’ll continue to give you my business. Well done. RN Mary Weathers also a Navy Veteran.

  62. If you don’t stand for something you can fall for anything. I appreciate that as one person Angie had the courage to make her voice heard. Their are other groups screaming all the time and that seems to be acceptable. We have become the laughing stock of the world and the fault lies squarely on this administration. They are not for maintaining our republic. And the left has drawn many into their socialist agenda . Americans who believe that this is a dangerous destructive direction for the USA need to take a stand as this woman has . God Bless America and God Bless Angie 💟✝️💟

  65. I also am a decorated Army veteran I don’t get. She supports veterans and thinks they are hero’s but I’m not welcome or allowed to eat there? I live here in Debary. This is a dump and I wouldn’t eat there anyway. I wish the media would not give these people more of a voice. They are divisive and ignorant. She says she feels the pain of combat KIA families? Please. In order to do that you must first serve this nation instead of trying to rip it apart with ignorance.

  66. I don’t mean to be controversial, but the death of our dear soldiers is not the fault of Biden nor is it the fault of the Taliban. The fault lies with extremism. Something that is dividing America today. Trump and Biden both wanted the soldiers out of Afghanistan and Syria. If we keep dividing, we will be plucked like chickens. This article makes me very sad.
