(RepublicanInformer.com)- Some people just aren’t taking it anymore.
Count business owner Brad Lewis among them.
Lewis owns Lewis Country Store in Nashville, Tennessee. Its LED sign broadcasts not just (rising) gas prices, but the outspoken owner’s own brand of political humor.
Recently, Lewis drew special attention for one of his most recent messages skewering none other than Hunter Biden, President Joe Biden’s wayward son.
Alongside familiar memes of Tucker Carlson’s laughing face and a gas gauge running on empty with the Biden-Harris campaign logo, is a message reading “Hope gas prices don’t get too high” with an image of Hunter Biden smoking crack in a bathtub labeled, “gas prices.”
I thought that gas station pic with Hunter was fake, but this guy RECORDED it!! 😂😂 Bless this ballsy gas station! 🇺🇸⚔ pic.twitter.com/PHfAlTxBZv

Of course, this isn’t the first time Lewis made the news for his politically-tinged messages.
Last year, Lewis Country Store’s sign reflected the owner’s opinions on mask mandates and social distancing guidelines.
One of the messages read, “Roses are red. Grass is greener. If you think I’m gonna wear a mask, you can suck my wiener.”
Not everybody is on board. Yesterday, I went to Lewis’ Country Store to the northwest of the city. They are openly defying the mask mandate and taunting the mayor about on their roadside sign. Classy, I know. pic.twitter.com/X0LYnlK1II

The store accompanied those messages with door graphics surrounding the local mask guidelines, calling them the work of communism and assuring customers that masks were not required in his store.

The sign read in part, “If you are scared stay at home! If you are afraid to be within 6 feet of another person please do not enter.”
At the time, Lewis told local news that he wasn’t alone in his feelings on mask mandates and social distancing, saying, “Rest assured people like me are willing to fight until our last breath and bullet to defend the constitution of this last frontier of freedom left on the planet we call the United States of America.”
Shell Oil even tried to cancel Lewis and his store back in 2016 for his political messages. They took their branding off the store and cut off his supply of gas, forcing the owner to scramble to keep up with demand. That still didn’t stop Lewis from speaking his mind, and he refused to submit to any corporate oligarch who tried to take away either his voice or his livelihood.
But some brave patriots like Brad Lewis just won’t be silenced. Unfortunately, not every patriot owns a store with as big a sign as his.
