The Republican Party of Virginia tried to launch a boycott of the restaurant that refused to serve White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders over the weekend, but the tweet that links to a petition only garnered 19 likes. It’s kind of odd really that the Virginia GOP would launch an attack on a small business that pays taxes to the state and employs residents of that state. Still yet, under the petition commenters are calling for the restaurant to be shut down. “Close this restaurant,” one commenter wrote.
While launching a boycott, the Virginia GOP claims to be part of the ‘silent majority’ in that state while mentioning the ‘intolerant left.’
Once again, the intolerant left has shown its true colors. Sign the boycott petition to show the Red Hen that patriotic Trump supporters are the silent majority in Virginia!https://t.co/ZLusaEqByo

It’s their right to boycott, but it’s doubtful that a handful of red hats can hurt the Red Hen’s business.

A controversial GOP Senatorial candidate in Virginia is a defender of Confederate monuments. Trump endorsed him, by the way.

I want to go to Virginia just so I can eat at the Red Hen.

Uh huh. The state chapter that runs a white supremacist as senate candidate. You have zero, repeat zero, moral high ground.

You’ll be admonishing any small business that denies service to an #LGBTQ person or couple next, right?
I mean, you’re definitely not being hypocritical here AT ALL, right, @VA_GOP?

Yet your side is often quoted saying, “what happened to the right to refuse service for whatever reason?” pic.twitter.com/RjKrndSynd

Did you guys boycott the GOP Congressman who body slammed a reporter?

There are no supportive comments on Twitter. Zero. Zilch.
I’ve been watching the Red Hen’s Twitter and Facebook accounts. Soon after the owner refused to serve Sarah Sanders they had a couple of hundred followers on Twitter and now they have over 24,500. On Facebook, they had between 1-2,000 ‘likes’ and now they have over 104,000 likes. It appears that they have removed the option to review the restaurant on Facebook after Trump supporters poured in to slam the venue even though they’ve never been there. But, that’s the Internet for you.
Trumpsters just aren’t very good at boycotts.
