Roger Grigsby Lashes Out About a "War on Whites" After Closing O'mei Restaurant
Investigative reports by Lynda Carson published to Indybay expose dozens of donors to David Duke's failed 2016 campaign for US Senate in Louisiana, including Roger F. Grigsby, owner and founding chef of O'mei restaurant in Santa Cruz, Clubhouse Jäger owner Julius De Roma in Minneapolis, and many others across several states. In Santa Cruz, customers began boycotting and giving bad reviews to O'mei almost immediately. Within a week, the restaurant closed its door. For those with doubt about whether a donation to David Duke qualifies one as a racist, read the email Grigsby sent to KPIX CBS calling the boycott "political terrorism" and crying about a "war on whites."
Full Statement from Roger Grigsby to KPIX 5 CBS:
Ryan, this is Roger, owner and founder of Omei in Santa Cruz.
There is only one legitimate "side" in this "story". My restaurant was subjected to political terrorism. By Indybay media, by bogus "reviews" placed on our Yelp! page, and by gossip on various other networks like Nextdoor and Facebook. The people at Yelp were not helpful in removing this disgusting garbage for over a week. By then it was too late. Due to peer pressure our wait staff walked off the job by not coming to work. At least one waiter was also posting scurrilous lies and innuendo on Yelp. Possibly another waiter was also involved.
So without waiters, we closed on Friday night, a first for us. We've been in business since 1979.
I really don't want to do a phone interview and I have very little trust that metropolitan media outlets will treat me fairly anyway, since they (and you) are also subjected to political pressure even if you won't admit that. As far as WHY this mob attack was done, it wasn't about myself or the biz even though we were the target. We are just a token in a much larger process of terrorizing White European Americans into silence in what has come to be known as the "War on Whites". My campaign contribution was to one of the men supporting European American Civil Rights. As a European American, it would be insane for me to not support said rights.
Any other questions should come to this email address.
