It’s unclear how Hallinan plans to enforce his prohibition on Muslims. He told Florida television station WFLA that he does not plan on asking his patrons about their religious affiliation.
But in his video, which had already been viewed about 40,000 times by Tuesday morning, Hallinan makes clear that he sees it as his duty to keep Muslims out of his shop.
“We are in battle, patriots, but not only with Islamic extremism,” he said. “We’re also in battle against extreme political correctness that threatens our lives, because if we can’t call evil ‘evil’ for fear of offending people, then we can’t really defeat our enemies.”
