‘Gecko’s’ owner cowers to left-wing mob, grovels to Gov. MLG after calling her a ‘Nazi’

On Monday, KRQE 13 News bullied a local Albuquerque restauranteur, forcing an apology out of him for calling Gov. Lujan Grisham a “Nazi” and calling Joe Biden a “socialist” because of the extended unemployment benefits given during the lockdown. These government checks have lowered the numbers of Americans in the workforce because they incentivize not working.

Walden Minoli, the owner of Gecko’s in Nob Hill put up a sign reading, “Gecko’s is closing our kitchen tonight at 6 pm due to a lack of staff. Special thank you to our Nazi in Santa Fe and our socialist in D.C. for trying to buy votes with extended unemployment benefits.” 

But KRQE 13 coaxed an apology out of him, where he said, “I was angry, and it was stupid on my part.” 

However, the left-wing extremists who work at his very restaurant and the liberal public at large were not happy with his apology, which many argue he should not have given in the first place. 

The triggered liberal staff members at the bar wrote, “We, the workers of Gecko’s Bar and Tapas at Nob Hill, find Wally’s statement posted on Saturday 6/26 to be unprofessional, unacceptable and offensive. … It is not our desire to at all defend or shelter Wally and we hope to use this as a learning experience to make our establishment more welcoming to all members of our community.”

“The employees also demanded that Minoli apologize directly to Lujan Grisham, the Jewish community and to them, saying that they have already been hurt personally and financially by his sign,” the Albuquerque Journal reported.

And under pressure, unlike other brave establishments such as Backstreet Grill in Old Town, Minoli caved to the left-wing mob, emboldened by his apology and willingness to bow down in submission.

The Albuquerque Journal reports:

Minoli said he has sent a written apology via text to Lujan Grisham and a letter of apology to the Jewish Community Center of Greater Albuquerque.

The governor responded early Wednesday, leaving a voicemail acknowledging that she had received his message and appreciated it. She also said she had some ideas going forward, left her work number and invited him to call her.

Gov. Lujan Grisham’s press secretary Nora Sackett fawned over the Governor’s response, writing on Twitter, “This is exactly who @GovMLG is – gracious, kind, and always committed to helping New Mexicans and finding solutions, no matter differences in opinion and even when the conflict was nasty and unnecessary and directed right at her.” This only gives fodder to far-left Democrats like Lujan Grisham, who are making an example of Minoli.

As Minoli goes on an apology tour after he was rightly frustrated by the Governor’s cruelty to small businesses, he is an example of what NOT to do when the left-wing mob demands one’s head. This should be a lesson to all that conservatives will unite behind those who stand up for what they believe in, even if it may not be popular. Now, Minoli has both angered the left and the right, and his business is likely to suffer een more for it.
