Café 8 1/2, talijanski restoran u Honoluluu, postavio je natpis: "Ako ste glasovali za Trumpa, ovdje ne možete jesti! Nema nacista ”

Slike c/o Yelp

Restoran se nalazi u blizini mjesta za odmor obitelji Obama.

Café 8 ½, talijanski restoran u Honoluluu, nedaleko od mjesta odmora obitelji Obama, nedavno je u prozoru postavio natpis: „Ako ste glasovali za Trumpa, ovdje ne možete jesti! Nema nacista. ”

Restoran se našao na udaru kritika zbog ovog prkosnog stava protiv novoizabranog predsjednika Donalda Trumpa i njegovih pristaša.

Žalosni ujedinite se! Bojkotirajte Honolulu's Cafe 8 1/2 koji ima veliki natpis koji govori Trumpovim glasačima da tamo ne jedu! U redu, možemo to učiniti

Honolulu's Cafe 8 1/2 govori Trumpovim glasačima da tamo ne mogu jesti. Čemu služi 8 1/2? Nije dovoljno za hvaliti se, možda je ostalo još nekoliko mjeseci u poslu.

"Robert samo želi izraziti koliko mu se Trump ne sviđa", rekla je za Fox News suvlasnica Jali Warner. “Ne želimo stvarati probleme. U svijetu ima dovoljno nevolja. ”

Havajci su velikom većinom podržali Hillary Clinton na izborima 8. studenog.


Republikanska stranka na Havajima je gotovo izumrla - i samo se pogoršava

Bilo je to nekoliko grubih dana za republikance, koji su na izborima u utorak izgubili u utrkama za gradonačelnika i guvernera diljem zemlje. No Shirlene Ostrov zna da može biti puno gore.

Predsjedateljica je Republikanske stranke na Havajima.

Posao može biti usamljen i nezahvalan. Njezina se zabava ovdje nalazi na rubu izumiranja.

Posljednji put kada su Havaji imali republikanca u američkom Senatu bilo je 1977. Od kada je postala država 1959., imala je samo dva člana GOP -a u Zastupničkom domu SAD -a, posljednji put 2011. godine.

U državnom Senatu svih 25 članova sada su demokrati, budući da je usamljeni republikanac Sam Slom izgubio kandidaturu za ponovni izbor u studenom prošle godine nakon 20 godina mandata.

U državnom domu od 51 člana ima pet republikanaca-u odnosu na šest u ožujku, kada je jedan promijenio stranke nakon što je osudio predsjednika Trumpa.

"Očito je razočaravajuće izgubiti", rekao je Ostrov o porazima republikanaca prošlog utorka na guvernerskim utrkama u Virginiji i New Jerseyju. "Ali vidim brojke, a Republikanska stranka u susjednim Sjedinjenim Državama radi nevjerojatno."

Republikanci ne samo da imaju predsjedništvo i Kongres, već i zaključavaju većinu državnih kuća i guvernera, brzo je istaknula.

"Na Havajima je slika drugačija", rekla je.

Prošle godine kandidirala se za američki dom i izgubila od demokrata koji je dobio gotovo tri puta više glasova. To je bilo tipično prikazivanje u onome što je u biti jednopartijska država.

"Uspjeh republikanaca na nacionalnoj razini imao je mali učinak na Havajima", rekla je Patricia Saiki, republikanka koja je državu predstavljala u američkom domu od 1987. do 1991. "Ako ništa drugo, učvrstila je demokratsku vlast ovdje."

Bilo je doba kada su republikanci držali većinu vlasti: kada su Havaji još uvijek bili teritorij i kontrolirali ih bijeli zemljoposjednici. No, s približavanjem državnosti, starosjedioci Havaja i azijski imigranti koji su radili na plantažama šećera vodili su sindikalne kampanje - početak demokratskog preuzimanja vlasti.

Najbolja dionica Republikanske stranke od tada je osam godina koliko je republikanka Linda Lingle bila guvernerka, druga članica svoje stranke koja je obnašala tu dužnost. Mandat joj je istekao 2010.

Nije da su demokrati riješili sve državne probleme. Havaji imaju najveću nacionalnu stopu beskućnika, a u Honoluluu neki od najgorih prometa. Ipak, republikanci nastavljaju gubiti.

Prošlog studenog nije bilo iznenađenje kada je Trump dobio 30% glasova stanovnika Havaja - što je njegov najniži broj u bilo kojoj državi. Možda već znajući rezultate, mnogi stanovnici Havaja nisu se potrudili glasati. Izlaznost je bila 43%.

Stvari su se od tada samo pogoršale za stranku.

U siječnju na Maršu žena u Honoluluu, državna zastupnica Beth Fukumoto, jedna od najvećih nada stranke na Havajima, kritizirala je Trumpa zbog "rasističkih i seksističkih" primjedbi.

Njenih pet republikanskih kolega odgovorilo je sljedećeg mjeseca rekavši joj da napusti mjesto vođe manjine Predstavničkog doma.

Sita, napustila je stranku u ožujku i postala demokrata. Ovog je mjeseca 34-godišnja Fukumoto objavila da razmišlja o kandidaturi za Kongres.

Mnogi republikanci na Havajima naginju se lijevo od svojih kopnenih kolega, uzevši u obzir uzroke poput klimatskih promjena i nejednakosti u prihodima.

Fukumoto kaže da će Trumpove izjave o muslimanima, ženama i imigrantima vjerojatno još više oštetiti ugled Republikanske stranke na Havajima.

"Zabava na Havajima sada je stranka Trumpa, i mislim da će im udruga nauditi", rekla je.

Miriam Hellreich, članica Republičkog nacionalnog odbora iz Honolulua, nije se složila s tim.

"Izbori idu u ciklusima, a mi smo bili u teškom silaznom ciklusu od kojeg je teško pobjeći", rekla je. “Ali imamo puno ljudi koji su republikanci, ali to jednostavno ne znaju. Oni su tradicionalni demokrati jer je tako glasovala njihova obitelj. ”

Dužnosnici Republikanske stranke kažu da se nadaju da će Trumpovo 19-satno prespavanje ovog mjeseca u Oahuu-njegov prvi posjet Havajima kao predsjednik-povećati moral.

Članovi stranke htjeli su da se formalno sastane s njima, ali najbliže što su im mogli prići je asfalt u zajedničkoj bazi Pearl Harbor-Hickam, gdje su snimili selfije pokraj njega u leju nakon što je Air Force One sletio.

Njegov raspored uključivao je posjete američkom pacifičkom zapovjedništvu, spomen obilježje USS Arizona u Pearl Harboru i zaustavljanje u Trumpovom hotelu u Waikikiju - vlasnici licenciraju Trumpovo ime - prije nego što je odletio u Japan.

Republikanci Havaja dobili su više vremena za razgovor krajem prošlog mjeseca s jednim od predsjednikovih surogata, Mikeom Huckabeejem.

Na prikupljanju sredstava izvan Honolulua, bivši guverner Arkansasa i otac tiskovne tajnice Bijele kuće Sarah Huckabee Sanders gotovo je sat vremena govorio o budućnosti stranke, na lokalnom i nacionalnom nivou.

"Dječače, mi smo ovdje manjina, misliš?" On je rekao.

Huckabee je rekao da to ne mora biti tako. "Nije vam suđeno da ostanete manjinska stranka do kraja života, jer imate poruku", rekao je. "Imate temeljna uvjerenja i vrijednosti za koje, iskreno govoreći, vjerujem da odjekuju kod ljudi gdje god živjeli."

Ostrov, predsjednica stranke koja je pomogla u organizaciji događaja, rekla je da je jedan od njegovih ciljeva prikupiti novac kako bi se raznolike zajednice dovele u okrilje republikanaca.

"Postoji mnogo ljudi koji nisu zadovoljni načinom upravljanja državom, na primjer s našim nevjerojatno visokim porezima", rekla je. "Nadam se da će Havaji jednog dana imati zdrav, živahan dvostranački sustav."

Za sada, međutim, kad stvari krenu naopako na Havajima, Ostrov je rekao: „Ne morate dobro razmišljati o tome tko je odgovoran.

Njegov raspored uključivao je posjete američkom pacifičkom zapovjedništvu, spomen obilježje USS Arizona u Pearl Harboru i zaustavljanje u Trumpovom hotelu u Waikikiju - vlasnici licenciraju Trumpovo ime - prije nego što je odletio u Japan.

Republikanci Havaja dobili su više vremena za razgovor krajem prošlog mjeseca s jednim od predsjednikovih surogata, Mikeom Huckabeejem.

Na prikupljanju sredstava izvan Honolulua, bivši guverner Arkansasa i otac tiskovne tajnice Bijele kuće Sarah Huckabee Sanders gotovo je sat vremena govorio o budućnosti stranke, na lokalnom i nacionalnom nivou.

"Dječače, mi smo ovdje manjina, misliš?" On je rekao.

Huckabee je rekao da to ne mora biti tako. "Nije vam suđeno da ostanete manjinska stranka do kraja života, jer imate poruku", rekao je. "Imate temeljna uvjerenja i vrijednosti za koje, iskreno govoreći, vjerujem da odjekuju kod ljudi gdje god živjeli."

Ostrov, predsjednica stranke koja je pomogla u organizaciji događaja, rekla je da je jedan od njegovih ciljeva prikupiti novac kako bi se raznolike zajednice dovele u okrilje republikanaca.

"Postoji mnogo ljudi koji nisu zadovoljni načinom upravljanja državom, na primjer s našim nevjerojatno visokim porezima", rekla je. "Nadam se da će Havaji jednoga dana imati zdrav, živahan dvostranački sustav."

Za sada, međutim, kad stvari krenu naopako na Havajima, Ostrov je rekao: „Ne morate dobro razmišljati o tome tko je odgovoran.

Republikanska stranka je gotovo izumrla na Havajima - i samo se pogoršava

Bilo je to nekoliko grubih dana za republikance, koji su na izborima u utorak izgubili u utrkama za gradonačelnika i guvernera diljem zemlje. No Shirlene Ostrov zna da može biti puno gore.

Predsjedateljica je Republikanske stranke na Havajima.

Posao može biti usamljen i nezahvalan. Njezina se zabava ovdje nalazi na rubu izumiranja.

Posljednji put kada su Havaji imali republikanca u američkom Senatu bilo je 1977. Otkako je postala država 1959., imala je samo dva člana GOP -a u Zastupničkom domu SAD -a, posljednji put 2011. godine.

U državnom Senatu svih 25 članova sada su demokrati, budući da je usamljeni republikanac Sam Slom izgubio kandidaturu za ponovni izbor u studenom prošle godine nakon 20 godina mandata.

U državnom domu od 51 člana ima pet republikanaca-u odnosu na šest u ožujku, kada je jedan promijenio stranke nakon što je osudio predsjednika Trumpa.

"Očito je razočaravajuće izgubiti", rekao je Ostrov o porazima republikanaca prošlog utorka na guvernerskim utrkama u Virginiji i New Jerseyju. "Ali vidim brojke, a Republikanska stranka u susjednim Sjedinjenim Državama radi nevjerojatno."

Republikanci ne samo da imaju predsjedništvo i Kongres, već i zaključavaju većinu državnih kuća i guvernera, brzo je istaknula.

"Na Havajima je slika drugačija", rekla je.

Prošle godine kandidirala se za američki dom i izgubila od demokrata koji je dobio gotovo tri puta više glasova. To je bilo tipično prikazivanje u onome što je u biti jednopartijska država.

"Uspjeh republikanaca na nacionalnoj razini imao je mali učinak na Havajima", rekla je Patricia Saiki, republikanka koja je državu predstavljala u američkom domu od 1987. do 1991. "Ako ništa drugo, učvrstila je demokratsku vlast ovdje."

Bilo je vrijeme kada su republikanci držali većinu vlasti: kada su Havaji još uvijek bili teritorij i kontrolirali ih bijeli zemljoposjednici. No, s približavanjem državnosti, starosjedioci Havaja i azijski imigranti koji su radili na plantažama šećera vodili su sindikalne kampanje - početak demokratskog preuzimanja vlasti.

Najbolja dionica Republikanske stranke od tada je osam godina koliko je republikanka Linda Lingle bila guvernerka, druga članica svoje stranke koja je obnašala tu dužnost. Mandat joj je istekao 2010.

Nije da su demokrati riješili sve državne probleme. Havaji imaju najveću nacionalnu stopu beskućnika, a u Honoluluu neki od najgorih prometa. Ipak, republikanci nastavljaju gubiti.

Prošlog studenog nije bilo iznenađenje kada je Trump dobio 30% glasova stanovnika Havaja - što je njegov najmanji broj u bilo kojoj državi. Možda već znajući rezultate, mnogi stanovnici Havaja nisu se potrudili glasati. Izlaznost je bila 43%.

Stvari su se od tada samo pogoršale za stranku.

U siječnju na Maršu žena u Honoluluu, državna zastupnica Beth Fukumoto, jedna od najvećih nada stranke na Havajima, kritizirala je Trumpa zbog "rasističkih i seksističkih" primjedbi.

Njenih pet republikanskih kolega odgovorilo je sljedećeg mjeseca rekavši joj da napusti mjesto vođe manjine Predstavničkog doma.

Sita, napustila je stranku u ožujku i postala demokrata. Ovog je mjeseca 34-godišnja Fukumoto objavila da razmišlja o kandidaturi za Kongres.

Mnogi republikanci na Havajima naginju se lijevo od svojih kopnenih kolega, uzevši u obzir uzroke poput klimatskih promjena i nejednakosti u prihodima.

Fukumoto kaže da će Trumpove izjave o muslimanima, ženama i imigrantima vjerojatno još više oštetiti ugled Republikanske stranke na Havajima.

"Zabava na Havajima sada je Trumpova stranka i mislim da će ih udruga naštetiti", rekla je.

Miriam Hellreich, članica Republičkog nacionalnog odbora iz Honolulua, nije se složila s tim.

"Izbori idu u ciklusima, a mi smo bili u teškom silaznom ciklusu od kojeg je teško pobjeći", rekla je. “Ali imamo puno ljudi koji su republikanci, ali to jednostavno ne znaju. Oni su tradicionalni demokrati jer je tako glasovala njihova obitelj. "

The Republican Party is almost extinct in Hawaii – and it’s only getting worse

It has been a rough few days for Republicans, who lost big in mayoral and gubernatorial races across the country in Tuesday’s election. But Shirlene Ostrov knows it can be much worse.

She is the chairwoman of the Republican Party in Hawaii.

The job can be lonely and thankless. Her party is teetering on the edge of extinction here.

The last time Hawaii had a Republican in the U.S. Senate was 1977. Since becoming a state in 1959, it’s had just two GOP members in the U.S. House of Representatives, most recently in 2011.

In the state Senate, all 25 members are now Democrats, since a lone Republican, Sam Slom, lost his reelection bid last November after 20 years in office.

In the 51-member state House, there are five Republicans — down from six in March, when one switched parties after denouncing President Trump.

“Obviously, it’s disappointing to lose,” Ostrov said about the defeats of Republicans last Tuesday in gubernatorial races in Virginia and New Jersey. “But I see the numbers, and the Republican Party in the contiguous United States is doing amazing.”

Republicans not only have the presidency and Congress but a lock on the majority of statehouses and governorships, she was quick to point out.

“In Hawaii, the picture is different,” she said.

Last year she ran for the U.S. House and lost to a Democrat who received nearly three times as many votes. It was a typical showing in what is essentially a one-party state.

“The success of Republicans nationally has had little effect in Hawaii,” said Patricia Saiki, a Republican who represented the state in the U.S. House from 1987 to 1991. “If anything, it solidified the Democratic grip here.”

There was a time when Republicans held most of the power: when Hawaii was still a territory and controlled by white landowners. But as statehood approached, Native Hawaiians and Asian immigrants working on sugar plantations waged union campaigns — the beginning of a Democratic takeover.

The Republican Party’s best stretch since then was the eight years that Republican Linda Lingle served as governor, the second member of her party to hold that office. Her term expired in 2010.

It’s not as though Democrats have solved all the state’s problems. Hawaii has the nation’s highest homelessness rate, and in Honolulu, some of its worst traffic. Still, Republicans keep losing.

Last November, it was no surprise when Trump received 30% of votes cast by Hawaii residents — his lowest total in any state. Perhaps already knowing the results, many Hawaii residents didn’t bother to vote. Turnout was 43%.

Things have only gotten worse for the party since then.

In January at the Women’s March in Honolulu, state Rep. Beth Fukumoto, one of the party’s biggest hopes in Hawaii, criticized Trump for “racist and sexist” remarks.

Her five Republican colleagues responded the next month by telling her to drop her post as House minority leader.

Fed up, she left the party in March and became a Democrat. This month, 34-year-old Fukumoto announced she was considering a run for Congress.

Many Republicans in Hawaii lean to the left of their mainland counterparts, having taken up causes such as climate change and income inequality.

Fukumoto says statements by Trump on Muslims, women and immigrants are likely to damage the Republican Party’s standing in Hawaii even more.

“The party in Hawaii is now the party of Trump, and I think the association is going to hurt them,” she said.

Miriam Hellreich, a Honolulu-based member of the Republican National Committee, disagreed.

“Elections go in cycles, and we’ve been in a difficult downward cycle that’s hard to escape,” she said. “But we have a lot of people who are Republicans but just don’t know it. They are traditional Democrats because that’s how their family voted.”

Republican Party officials say they hope Trump’s 19-hour overnight stop in Oahu this month — his first visit to Hawaii as president — would boost morale.

Party members wanted him to formally meet with them, but the closest they got was the tarmac at Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam, where they snapped selfies next to him in a lei after Air Force One landed.

His schedule included visits to U.S. Pacific Command, the USS Arizona Memorial at Pearl Harbor and a stop at the Trump hotel in Waikiki — the owners license the Trump name — before he flew to Japan.

Hawaii Republicans got more face time late last month with one of the president’s surrogates, Mike Huckabee.

At a fundraiser outside Honolulu, the former Arkansas governor and father of White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders spoke for nearly an hour about the future of the party, both locally and nationally.

“Boy, we’re a minority here, you think?” he said.

Huckabee said it didn’t have to be that way. “You are not destined to be the minority party for the rest of your lives, because you have a message,” he said. “You have core convictions and values that, quite frankly, I believe resonate with people wherever they live.”

Ostrov, the state party chairwoman who helped organize the event, said one of its goals was to raise money to bring more diverse communities into the Republican fold.

“There are a lot of people who are not happy with how the state is run, such as with our incredibly high taxes,” she said. “I hope for Hawaii to one day have a healthy, vibrant two-party system.”

For now, though, when things go wrong in Hawaii, Ostrov said, “You don’t have to think hard about who’s responsible.

The Republican Party is almost extinct in Hawaii – and it’s only getting worse

It has been a rough few days for Republicans, who lost big in mayoral and gubernatorial races across the country in Tuesday’s election. But Shirlene Ostrov knows it can be much worse.

She is the chairwoman of the Republican Party in Hawaii.

The job can be lonely and thankless. Her party is teetering on the edge of extinction here.

The last time Hawaii had a Republican in the U.S. Senate was 1977. Since becoming a state in 1959, it’s had just two GOP members in the U.S. House of Representatives, most recently in 2011.

In the state Senate, all 25 members are now Democrats, since a lone Republican, Sam Slom, lost his reelection bid last November after 20 years in office.

In the 51-member state House, there are five Republicans — down from six in March, when one switched parties after denouncing President Trump.

“Obviously, it’s disappointing to lose,” Ostrov said about the defeats of Republicans last Tuesday in gubernatorial races in Virginia and New Jersey. “But I see the numbers, and the Republican Party in the contiguous United States is doing amazing.”

Republicans not only have the presidency and Congress but a lock on the majority of statehouses and governorships, she was quick to point out.

“In Hawaii, the picture is different,” she said.

Last year she ran for the U.S. House and lost to a Democrat who received nearly three times as many votes. It was a typical showing in what is essentially a one-party state.

“The success of Republicans nationally has had little effect in Hawaii,” said Patricia Saiki, a Republican who represented the state in the U.S. House from 1987 to 1991. “If anything, it solidified the Democratic grip here.”

There was a time when Republicans held most of the power: when Hawaii was still a territory and controlled by white landowners. But as statehood approached, Native Hawaiians and Asian immigrants working on sugar plantations waged union campaigns — the beginning of a Democratic takeover.

The Republican Party’s best stretch since then was the eight years that Republican Linda Lingle served as governor, the second member of her party to hold that office. Her term expired in 2010.

It’s not as though Democrats have solved all the state’s problems. Hawaii has the nation’s highest homelessness rate, and in Honolulu, some of its worst traffic. Still, Republicans keep losing.

Last November, it was no surprise when Trump received 30% of votes cast by Hawaii residents — his lowest total in any state. Perhaps already knowing the results, many Hawaii residents didn’t bother to vote. Turnout was 43%.

Things have only gotten worse for the party since then.

In January at the Women’s March in Honolulu, state Rep. Beth Fukumoto, one of the party’s biggest hopes in Hawaii, criticized Trump for “racist and sexist” remarks.

Her five Republican colleagues responded the next month by telling her to drop her post as House minority leader.

Fed up, she left the party in March and became a Democrat. This month, 34-year-old Fukumoto announced she was considering a run for Congress.

Many Republicans in Hawaii lean to the left of their mainland counterparts, having taken up causes such as climate change and income inequality.

Fukumoto says statements by Trump on Muslims, women and immigrants are likely to damage the Republican Party’s standing in Hawaii even more.

“The party in Hawaii is now the party of Trump, and I think the association is going to hurt them,” she said.

Miriam Hellreich, a Honolulu-based member of the Republican National Committee, disagreed.

“Elections go in cycles, and we’ve been in a difficult downward cycle that’s hard to escape,” she said. “But we have a lot of people who are Republicans but just don’t know it. They are traditional Democrats because that’s how their family voted.”

Republican Party officials say they hope Trump’s 19-hour overnight stop in Oahu this month — his first visit to Hawaii as president — would boost morale.

Party members wanted him to formally meet with them, but the closest they got was the tarmac at Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam, where they snapped selfies next to him in a lei after Air Force One landed.

His schedule included visits to U.S. Pacific Command, the USS Arizona Memorial at Pearl Harbor and a stop at the Trump hotel in Waikiki — the owners license the Trump name — before he flew to Japan.

Hawaii Republicans got more face time late last month with one of the president’s surrogates, Mike Huckabee.

At a fundraiser outside Honolulu, the former Arkansas governor and father of White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders spoke for nearly an hour about the future of the party, both locally and nationally.

“Boy, we’re a minority here, you think?” he said.

Huckabee said it didn’t have to be that way. “You are not destined to be the minority party for the rest of your lives, because you have a message,” he said. “You have core convictions and values that, quite frankly, I believe resonate with people wherever they live.”

Ostrov, the state party chairwoman who helped organize the event, said one of its goals was to raise money to bring more diverse communities into the Republican fold.

“There are a lot of people who are not happy with how the state is run, such as with our incredibly high taxes,” she said. “I hope for Hawaii to one day have a healthy, vibrant two-party system.”
