Scott Van Duzer Faces Boycott after “Bear Hug” of Obama … Whines There is No Middle Line …Shut Up and Make Pizza
SHUT UP A MAKE PIZZA …
Scott Van Duzer, the owner of Big Apple Pizza & Pasta Restaurant in Fort Pierce, FL and the man pictured the other day giving Barack Obama a bear hug is now complaining that he might be boycotted. Duzer, an Obama supporter stated that“People are saying a lot of bad things and boycotting my restaurant. There’s no middle line anymore, and that’s exactly what’s wrong with our country right now.” Hmm, who knew that giving the President of the United States was acting in the middle of the road? When one owns a business that wants to market to all folks, well then one best be careful what one says or does. Actions have consequences.
Mr. Duzer, people have a right to boycott you. That is their freedom of speech. Just like you had a right to bear hug the president and make any comments in support of Obama. As much as any normal and literate business owner would know could have ramifications. So basically, Deal with it. Hey Scott Van Duzer, can you say Chick-fil-a? At least you do not have elected officials telling you that you do not have a right to open a business in their cities because of your political or personal opinions.
“People are saying a lot of bad things and boycotting my restaurant,” Scott Van Duzer, 46, told POLITICO. “There’s no middle line anymore, and that’s exactly what’s wrong with our country right now.”
The owner of Big Apple Pizza & Pasta Restaurant in Fort Pierce, Fla., said that both Democrats and Republicans are welcome in his store. But he also said he thinks Mitt Romney’s running mate Rep. Paul Ryan — whose sculpted abs are thanks to intense P90X training sessions — would lose to the president in a workout battle.
“I think Obama could take him,” Van Duzer said, laughing. “Obama looked pretty fast and pretty quick on his feet.”
What a joke the yahoos are at YAHOO. Because I am most certain that all of you whining about how Van Duzer was being treated felt the same way about Dan Cathy and the Chick-fil-a controversy where not only did the LEFT want to boycott them but also politicians in Chicago and Boston tried to prevent them from opening franchises.
Another user, this one checking in from Brooklyn, N.Y., 1,165 miles away, chirped: “Really, conservatards? You try to trash a man’s business because he likes a different political candidate than you? What scum you all are. Go crawl back in your holes. SCOTT VAN DUZER IS MY HERO!”
Of the 229 comments listed on the page (30 of them “filtered,” one removed for violating terms of service), only two were published pre-bear hug, the most recent coming in 2010.
In the end, stick to making pizza if you do not want controversy. However, if you wish to branch out and seek the fame and glory from Barack Obama, then you best be ready for the backlash.
