Bruce Bertram, who owns The Chair Doctor, a Grand Junction furniture repair service, says on his website that he offers a lifetime warranty, he’s “open Sunday through Friday, about 9a to 6p. Closed Saturday. Phone 970-243-2929 for appointment,” and adds “Biden supporters not welcome.”

Answer 19: Are Biden supporters really not welcome at your business?
Yes. Since Biden supporters are not supporters of the Constitution, we don’t support them. They want to censor anyone that disagrees with them so we censor them. They are okay with stealing elections, like killing babies, defend Burn Loot and Murder riots while lying about legitimate protests at the Capitol, promote communism/socialism/globalism, are trying to destroy our country, and are generally hateful, ignorant people (obviously, if you are a Biden supporter).
Local Republicans fed the insanity, eroded civility
This is an example of how unhinged local Republicans have become in the aftermath of the 2020 election.
Mesa County politicians promoted Trump’s Big Lie that he won the election, helped poison voters’ minds with lies and contributed to this level of insanity and incivility among the locals.
State Senator Ray Scott, Mesa County Clerk Tina Peters, Mesa County Republican Party Chair Kevin McCarney, and CD-3 House Rep. Lauren Boebert all promoted the Big Lie. None of them have yet apologized for it or told their followers it was wrong of them to do that because it tore at the fabric of our democracy and caused incalculable damage.
So this is the damage they brought us.
it’s no wonder people like Bertram are so misled that they are unable to grasp reality.
Our area has limped along under loony Republicans for decades, and now their ideology is hobbling us even further.
Business owners like Bertram feel it’s just fine to make Grand Junction look like a vile, hateful place, where people openly spout the unhinged rhetoric embraced by far right-wing domestic terrorist militias.
And not only is Bertram is doing it, but he’s doing it with the encouragement of our embarrassing, unhinged local Republican leaders.
