The Lansing Breing Company canceled plans to host a political mixer for organizations supporting former President Donald Trump after receiving threats and public backlash online from radical intolerant leftists.

According to the Lansing State Journal — Lansing Brewing Company, located at 518 E. Shiawassee St., was widely criticized after a flier for the event, billed as a “MAGA Mixer,” gained attention on social media. Scheduled for March 26, the mixer was slated to take place after a rally on the steps of the Michigan Capitol in support of the former president.
The organizers of the conservative gathering, Grand Opportunity USA (GOUSA) and Republicans for National Renewal, two 501(c)(4) organizations, were then left scrambling to find a substitute venue.
They have since signed a contract with The Royal Scot Banquet Center in Lansing who have now received death threats from the intolerant left.
Despite these threats the Royal Scot is still planning on holding the event.
Local FOX News ran a news segment on the Royal Scot from their parking lot after they failed to kneel to the leftist mob.
Now the Royal Scot Venue is receiving death threats and threats of violence from radical Michigan leftists.
Will AG Dana Nessel be investigating?
Here are a few examples:
**Why the hell would you host a treasonous cult of personality?
** Didn’t you notice that the majority of Lansing has rejected this?
** They’re not going to pay you enough to make up for being shunned by your city. I can only assume your ownership belongs to the aforementioned cult, which is pathetic and sad but have fun at your little mixer where you can obsess over rewriting history and talking about shit you don’t understand. F*ck all of you, hope you close soon
** Won’t be going to my reunion if it’s still held at your facility. Your hosting those Putin loving MAGA rats. Those that support EX president trump are traitors not patriots. – Barbara Hurley Shulick
** your 1st mistake comparing maga a cult organization to either democrat or republican party . The bottom line if it was a Republican event no one would care but maga is a racist cult filled organization there’s a big difference. I will not be golfing or bowling at your establishment anymore including golfing events . Hopefully the state tournament for bowling will respond by no longer holding it’s event at your establishment – Chad Martin
** Sally Voorhees- Hosting a MAGA event isn’t any different than holding a Klan event. Neither one should be tolerated.
** Richard Krause- What???? People like this should should not be allowed to congregate… We need to shut this DOWN! It should be illegal for these people to exist. In fact it should be illegal to be republican! That way only the FACTS can be shared. Right gang?
The Royal Scot Venue also noted they have also received death threats over the phone.
Mark Ivanyo, executive director of Republicans for National Renewal, had this to say about the threats of violence, “The far left is scared of the rising America First movement in Michigan and abroad, but their cancel culture tactics are failing. We will hold the MAGA Rally and the Mixer, and there is nothing they can do to stop it.”
GOUSA founder John Paul Moran added this, “All we are doing is standing for the principles that about 80% of the voters agree on – the America First principles and values are the voice of the “forgotten 80%” and are the reason and the basis for our organization’s OppScore, which is a nonpartisan credit score of sorts for politicians. It’s the extreme radical 10-20% fringe that intimidated our first venue into cancelling – not every day Americans but a small, radical and often violent fringe that is really attacking 80% of us!” –
