A Skowhegan, Maine gas company has decided that they can do without half their customers because of their hatred for President-elect Donald Trump.
They sent out the word loud and clear, if you voted for Trump get your gas elsewhere! Insanity!
“If you voted for Donald Trump for President, I will no longer be delivering your gas, please find someone else,” was the new message customers heard that called Turner LP Gas Service, in Skowhegan.
Say what? This is worse than the moron who decided to run his restaurant into the ground running it like a socialist utopia that we reported on last week. What business in their right mind wants to throw away half their customer base? I hope their competitors run with this! Excellent opportunity!
The message went on to say that the cost of gas remains $110 a bottle and that payment was due on delivery. A voicemail message left at Turner LP Gas Service from the Portland PressHerald was not returned.
I bet! This is unbelievable! Listen for yourself:
The Maine publication State & Capitol reports that the message was recorded by none other than owner Michael Turner and he is standing by his decision:
Reached on Friday night, Turner said he recorded the message on Election Day. After media learned of it earlier that day, he said he had 50 voicemails. Most of them were from angry Trump supporters, but he said one of four were supportive.
He said Trump is “despicable” and said, “I think he’s the Antichrist,” though the Skowhegan native and veteran said his family likely all voted for the president-elect because of his stances on gun rights and abortion.
“It’s just a statement,” Turner said. “If you voted for Trump, don’t tell me and I wouldn’t cut anyone off that was freezing.”
Turner could be turning away a lot of business, given that the Republican president-elect won Somerset County with 58 percent of votes.
I’m all for freedom of speech and total sovereignty of one’s business. I would stand by Mr. Turners right to do this to the death. There are consequences tho…
I also stand by the rights of his customers to vote with their wallet. I hope many do!
