“It’s time that people started standing up, not worrying about the PC crowd and do what is right,” Dan Ruedinger, who owns the restaurant, told WCCO-TV. “And I feel what we’re doing is right. We are not targeting the Muslims in general, just the extremists.”
The sign was put up following the stabbing of eight people at a St. Cloud mall over the weekend, during which the the suspect reportedly made references to Allah and reportedly asked people if they were Muslim. The Islamic State has claimed responsibility for the act, although officials have not yet confirmed ties to international terrorism.
Ruedinger said he was going to put “Muslim extremist” on the board, but that there wasn’t enough room,KMSP-TV reported.
“People started taking it the wrong way and thinking we were against Muslims in general, and we’re not,” Ruedinger said. “We are not racist.”
“It’s my right and I’m going to stand up, and I wish more people would do it,” the Minnesota restaurant owner added.
