On Saturday, a Muslim man stabbed eight people at a mall in St. Cloud, Minnesota. Witnesses say the man asked victims whether they were Muslim before he stabbed them. The man has been identified by his family and local activists as Somalian refugee Dahir Adan. ISIS, who recruits heavily in this area, has claimed responsibility for the terrorist attack. Adan was shot and killed by an off-duty police officer

One restaurant owner in Lonsdale, Minnesota has decided he has had enough and put a message on the sign of Treats Family Resturant that is drawing both criticism and support.

Dan Ruedinger, the owner of the restaurant, spoke with WCCO-TV about his sign which reads, “Muslims Get Out.” He says he wanted to include the word “extremist” on the sign but there was no space.

“It’s time that people started standing up, not worrying about the PC crowd and do what is right. And I feel what we’re doing is right. We are not targeting the Muslims in general, just the extremists.”


Ruedinger continued the defense of his sign making an argument that Leftists around the country have accepted in the Colin Kaepernick led NFL protest of the American flag. He says it is his right.

“People started taking it the wrong way and thinking we were against Muslims in general, and we’re not racist. We are not racist. It’s my right and I’m going to stand up, and I wish more people would do it.

While one woman attempted to pull off the letters of the sign, overall Ruedinger says his business has been booming as people flock to the restaurant to support him. He said he was so busy on Monday that he had to call in three extra employees.
