Remember Mario Perillo, Mr. Italy?
He organized the most popular tours of Italy and his cheesy, but effective, commercials were nauseatingly ubiquitous.
Perillo seemed like a good guy, and his hand-picked tours were popular.
Today, his son runs the business. Steve Perillo. Steve seems more interested in music than the family business. He also know how to alienate half his potential customer base.

You don’t explain yourself in any meaningful way. The sign is down but I’m not seeing any indication as to where you stand politically. It shouldn’t really matter, but you opened up that can of worms.
I see perhaps someone who is responding to the economic ramifications for having so boldly and painstakingly shouted their beliefs for the world to see.
You have your right to express yourself. And we have the right to post this to let your customer base decide for themselves if they want to spend money with a company that is so political.
Maybe if you painted “I WAS WRONG… MAGA!” on the roof I would update this post.
