A California restaurant that resisted the state’s Draconian coronavirus restrictions throughout the pandemic announced this week it will only serve customers who have not been vaccinated against COVID-19.
It is unclear what kind of proof the restaurant would like to see, but the owners said the new requirements are a direct response to the “little dictators” who want to impose vaccine mandates across the country.
Basilico’s also slammed the “haters,” specifically the Los Angeles Times, for encouraging leftists to harass the restaurant.
“‘LOS ANGELES TIMES’ PRINTS AN ARTICLE ABOUT US, AND AGAIN HERE COME THE HATERS, AND WITH IT, THE HARASSING NON-STOP PHONE CALLS, THREATS AND HUNDREDS OF ONE STAR REVIEWS. AND GUESS WHAT? WE AT ‘BASILICO’S PASTA E VINO’ WEAR IT ALL AS A BADGE OF HONOR!” the eatery wrote on Facebook.
Earlier this year, Basilico’s announced it would not allow any of its customers to wear masks inside the restaurant.
“To be clear, if you enter the restaurant for dine in, and want to wear a mask, you must remove it when sitting down. If you are standing around inside and waiting for a table, or waiting inside to pick up food for yourself or as a third party delivery driver, and you are wearing a mask, you will be asked to wait outside,” the owners explained.
Basilico’s said its anti-mask and anti-vaccine policies are necessary to fight the “tiny tyrants” and “mini gestapo American traitors and snitches.”
“WE FEEL BLESSED TO GO INTO BATTLE AGAINST ALL OF YOU IN DEFENSE OF AMERICAN LIBERTY AND FREEDOM, SO BRING IT ON!” the restaurant added.
