Without regard for who he might offend, a Florida seafood restaurant owner just posted a sign outside his business because he was so fed up with what he’d seen that he got off the fence for the first time to share exactly how he felt. And when certain people saw it, he got more than what he expected, however, Cowboy had a surprise in store for them.

At Barnacle Bill’s Fish Restaurant, William “Bill” Davis has been feeding Sarasota residents the freshest seafood available while also offering warm customer service for years. Bill claimed that although working in a public business, he’s always kept his opinions to himself but after seeing what Democrats were trying to do, he was unable to continue.

The conservative put a customized statement on his marquee because he didn’t want any leftists teaching him how to live. Bill simply stated on his marquee, “NRA MEMBER, CONCEALED CARRY OK, NOT A DEPLORABLE, VOTE TRUMP.” Letting everyone in town know exactly where he stands.

Restaurant owner William Davis says that the deplorable comment is drawn from a speech in which Hillary Clinton classified half of Trump’s supporters as a “basket of deplorables.”

Since Davis opted to express his political opinions on the restaurant’s roadside sign, the marquee has generated discussion and controversy. Thousands of emails in favor and against his activities have been sent to him. Even murder threats have been made against him, to which Davis responded, “I’m an NRA member, I’ll protect myself.”

Using their First Amendment rights to blast him for using his First Amendment rights, the anti-Trump protesters and the pro-Trump counter-demonstrators weren’t expected out front in the restaurant for hours. They even urged everyone to show up and force a take-down on the conservative cowboy’s sign. But the action came to a peak, as the supporters of the left demonstration were soon met with plans for a counter-protest by local Republican leaders. Nearly 100 Trump supporters faced about 20 liberals chanters across the way, yelling for the cowboy to “take his sign down.”

And because of the incredible outpouring of support from conservatives in town, the business has never been better at Barnacle Bill’s Seafood Restaurant after all the calls and letters from liberals claiming they won’t be eating there anymore.

Although this local controversy quickly escalated and received public attention, this is not the first time Barnacle Bill’s and its management have exhibited strong political views.
