Owners of “Worlds of Music Chicago,” Suzzanne Monk and Alexander Duvel, are now forced to shut down their business in April after the discovery of this support for President Donald Trump.
They were ‘outed‘ as supporters after a post regarding a rally at the University of Illinois-Chicago, which got noticed by leftists. Shortly after, they started receiving online threats and a decline in business. Their personal friends, who are ‘so seriously anti-trump’ are hesitant to be associated with them or their store because they do not want to seem like they’re supporting President Trump.
Some of their acquaintances have taken to the assumption that they’re white supremacists simply because of their political choices. In this day and age, it is absolutely outrageous that anyone should be persecuted because of their political choices, especially when that choice is to vote for the current President.
Suzzanne Monk and Alexander Duvel, owners of Worlds of Music Chicago, said on “Fox & Friends Weekend” that their Trump support is causing them to shut down their music store in April.Monk said she was “outed” as a Trump supporter after she and her husband posted about the University of Illinois-Chicago rally that was shut down by protesters.
“We actually drew some attention from the left, and they ‘outed’ us at that point as Trump supporters,” Monk said.
Since being “outed,” Monk said she and Duvel have been subjected to online threats and a decline in business, adding that friends have been wary of recommending anyone to the store because they back President Donald Trump.
“[It was] like I was just becoming more of a liability to [friends] because they couldn’t associate or recommend my shop to do business simply because of their peer group being so seriously anti-Trump,” Duvel explained.
Monk added that many people the couple had known for a long time decided the two were white supremacists and xenophobes without any evidence other than they voted for Trump. While Monk and Duvel are closing down the retail side of their store, they will now focus on online sales and repairs.
