Zach Adamson, the Vice President of the Indy City Council, didn’t appreciate Shapiro’s tweet welcoming the NRA and his reminder that President Trump enjoyed a visit to the family eatery in 2016 as he campaigned for the Republican nomination. Adamson responded first by commenting on Facebook where he posted the tweet. “This breaks my heart. Truly.”
The comments to Adamson’s tweet brought about the feeding Nazis remark. Adamson chimed in with his agreement, claiming that Brian Shapiro was “bragging” about feeding Nazis (Trump supporters).
On Adamson’s post, commenters then made mention of the religion of Shapiro’s owner, Brian Shapiro, who is Jewish. One comment insinuated that Shapiro is feeding Nazis. It stated, in part, “The Shapiro family is Jewish. By showing they welcome the NRA & trump they are saying they are okay with oppression of the marginalized people that trumps base hate. Including Jews….It’s almost as if Brian Shapiro forgot about his family heritage by encouraging a group of people who identify as anti-Semite to dine at his establishment.”
When another commenter stated that, “feeding Nazis for a price isn’t supporting the Nazi cause,” Councilor Adamson posted, “This is about bragging that you feed Nazis and then being shocked with all the locals avoid you…”
Responding to all of that garbage, Brian Shapiro called into Tony Katz’s radio show.
“I’m just confused by his comment that he’s upset with us. I just don’t understand… If Indianapolis doesn’t want Donald Trump here, then I guess they can pass a law that stops him from coming here, but the other side of the coin is it’s going to bring the city $32 million… At the end of the day, the governemnt is suppossed to improve people’s lives by making people’s business better and growing the economy. Obviously, the councilman is upset.”
