‘I am ashamed’ — Store owner who voted for Trump closes amid ‘Day Without Immigrants’
San Francisco Chronicle ^ | February 16, 2017 | Hamed Aleaziz

Posted on 02/16/2017 1:27:37 PM PST by artichokegrower

Rahban Algazali of San Leandro regrets the decision he made Nov. 8, which his friends and family have not let him forget.

After the Yemen native and Muslim American voted for Donald Trump, and after Trump tried to ban citizens of several majority-Muslim countries from entering the U.S., Algazali sent a rather ordinary photo of his son dressed in traditional Yemeni garb to family members.

In the accompanying picture with the article the front of Mr. Algazali's store has a big sign proclaiming that they accept food stamps and EBT cards. He did a big favor for the American taxpayer in shutting down.

I doubt he voted for Trump. That’s an easy lie to make.

This qualifies as a fake news story because this guy never voted for Trump.

Nobody has a problem with LEGAL immigrants.

They are deliberately trying to confuse people.

I can find 1 exception to just about anything. Cherry picking people with voter’s remorse is not a scientific survey.

Once again fake news

The man clearly has difficulty envisioning the consequences of his actions, so it stands to reason that he’d lose a day’s business receipts for pointless symbolism.

” the Yemen native and Muslim American”

Bet the majority of the income derived from these stores located in the tougher neighborhoods of Oakland come from the sales of beer and cheap wine.

The only way he voted for Trump is if he could not read the ballot. But aren’t ballots available in all of the 5,000 languages spoken in the marvelously multicultural Bay Area?

Yeah, I don’t believe that he voted for Trump either.

Anyone from Yemen would fully realize that Yemen SHOULD be atop the list of banned countries.

If this “Trump voter” falls for the Fake News narrative, he might not be smart enough to run a business. The Travel Ban is not a issue with Muslims. It is a issue with terrorists and nations in such turmoil that cannot verify that immigrants are who they say they are. The terrorists could be little green men from the Planet X who hide their identity in human forms and pray to Allah. Because Syria has them does not mean we are targeting Muslims. We are targeting little green men who are masquerading as Muslims. I Know. Only me and my Science Fiction friends understand.

Like all the left's social engineering projects administered by the massive nanny state - its fed by huge Federal Government debt and our totally unbacked, printed currency. Get rid of the Federal Reserve, its QE, money printing, debt creation and manipulated interest rates - and you destroy the left completely.

Seriously doubt he voted for Trump.

If he did, he probably wouldn’t broadcast it.

And if he did, he certainly has no convictions.

I hope people across the country are keeping lists of the businesses that are closing in support of illegal aliens. The lists should be posted widely on social media.

“LEGAL immigrants”

The word “immigrant” has always meant those in the country legally. When we say the US is a nation of immigrants we are saying our forefathers entered the US legally.

If one entered the US illegally, they should not be called “immigrant.”

Of course illegal aliens in the current era have commandeered the word just as homosexuals have taken the word “gay” from usual usage.

You may have missed my point, which was to watch out for the people your wife fired.

They just may come back somehow and make your life miserable, rob you, or worse.
