Fox News political analyst Gianno Caldwell joined "Fox & Friends Weekend" to explain how he was asked to leave a restaurant in Florida because of his "political views."
On Saturday morning, Fox News’ Gianno Caldwell was asked to leave a restaurant in North Miami, Florida, because his Conservative views “don’t align” with the opinions of the owners.
The restaurant, Paradis Books and Bread, posted on their public Instagram account (@paradis.bb) with a caption that alluded to Gianno and his group, stating that “their behavior and their words made other folks in the space as well as the one of us working very uncomfortable.”

“This situation reminds me of something that MLK said in 1963, a very simple truth. He said, ‘Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.’ And what I experienced yesterday, me and some of my neighbors, who I’m just getting to know, was an injustice. It was a grave injustice,” the Fox News political analyst said on “Fox & Friends Weekend” Sunday.
On Saturday morning, the restaurant owner approached Caldwell and said that she had been listening to their conversation and decided that they “were not welcome” in her restaurant.

“They said, ‘Are you a conservative?’ I said, ‘Yes. In fact, I have a book called “Taken for Granted: How Conservatism Can Win Back the Americans That Liberalism Failed.” You should get the book.’”
“I talked to them about my brother. I was on Capitol Hill just the other week talking to members of Congress about violent crime in America and trying to get justice for my brother and other victims of violent crime,” Caldwell said.

“This was so problematic to this lady that she told me that I needed to get out of her establishment. If this was not the Jim Crow South, I couldn’t tell how much of a difference,” Caldwell told co-host Rachel Campos-Duffy.
Caldwell noted that the restaurant owner did not reveal any information regarding her own political views.
“This lady stared me down the entire time that I was in a restaurant. There’s a target on the backs of people who happen to be Black, who happen to be conservative, and it needs to come to an end,” Caldwell said.
