In a video posted to Facebook, an elderly white woman went on a racist and oddly ahistorical tirade about the Nazis and the Russians after hearing another woman speaking in Spanish at an IHOP.
In the video, posted by Carlos Steven Baez, the woman can be seen criticizing Baez’s mother for speaking Spanish, saying “We speak English here,” before telling her “Go back to Spain.”
After Baez’s mother passionately explains that she speaks English too, saying “I speak English, maybe not good,” Baez jumps in telling the woman “You can’t be doing that, that’s racist.”
The woman then launches into a tirade, linking bilingualism to the Nazis and the Russians.
“You want the Russians over here telling you what to do? You want the Nazis telling you what to do?” she excitedly asks, as Baez tells her, “That’s what you’re doing to my mom. You’re telling her what to do. She speaks English. She’s not perfect, but she speaks English.”
“We want English in the United States,” the woman replies. “We have freedom of speech, you’re the proof of it. We want that freedom.”
Following Baez once again telling her she can’t tell his mother what to do, the woman replies, “Yes. We want English. We don’t want the Nazis back. We don’t want fascists back. We don’t want Castro back.”
Baez then tells her, “I m not telling you what to do. I’m not telling you to learn Spanish,” to which the woman replies, “I don’t want Spanish. I’ve been to Spain, I bet you haven’t been to Spain and I have.”
After telling her he has been to Spain, Baez then baits the woman saying, “No for Donald Trump.”
While most commenters on Baez’s Facebook page were supportive of him and his mother, Glenn Price wrote (verbatim), “This is America. I have to go attempt to find translators for many differnent language speakers. I your going to live here, you should either have an interpretor know English. This customer was not treated wrong.”
Watch the video below:

CNN panel lights up Trump over ‘the greatest hypocrisy’ of his presidency
President Donald Trump received harsh criticism on Saturday for golfing while continuing to push conspiracy theories about the 2020 presidential election, which Trump lost to President-elect Joe Biden.
"In Wisconsin, President-elect Joe Biden has just picked up more votes in the state's recount. Remember, this is a recount that was requested by President Trump's campaign in its failing attempt to overturn the election results," CNN's Boris Sanchez reported. "The final count gave Biden a more than 180,000 vote edge over his rival in Milwaukee County and certified his victory."
"By the way, the recount cost millions of dollars, so the Trump team spent millions to lose even harder," he added.
CNN legal analyst laughs off Trump’s desire to get before the Supreme Court after a series of ‘humiliating’ court losses
On CNN Saturday, former federal prosecutor Elie Honig assessed the mounting failures in President Donald Trump's legal efforts to challenge the result of the 2020 election.
"I'm laughing because they keep trying, and the results this week somehow went from horrible to somehow even worse," said Honig. "The big case now is ... Rudy Giuliani's effort to overturn Pennsylvania. Last week, a federal district court judge firmly rejected the case. He said there's zero evidence. He called the case, a quote, 'Frankenstein's monster haphazardly stitched together' and that's gotta sting, and yesterday a three-judge panel of the Court of Appeals decisively and harshly rejected the case as well. And the thing is, President Trump's lawyers tried to attack the first judge, saying, well, he's an Obama nominee. Well, guess what? The three judges yesterday who unanimously rejected it were appointed by President George W. Bush, George W. Bush, and Donald J. Trump."
Judges are ‘fed up’ with Trump’s voter fraud claims as his lawyers get ‘themselves into hot water’: Ex-prosecutor
On CNN Saturday, following Donald Trump's Pennsylvania election suit being dismissed in a scathing opinion by a federal judge he had appointed, former federal prosecutor Shan Wu broke down the significance of the latest developments.
"I think this judge was just the latest in a series of judges fed up with the Trump team's weak arguments," said Wu. "I said in a piece back on November 8th on CNN that it was time for the Trump legal team to put up or shut up, and they haven't done either. I mean, judge after judge has rebuked them for not having any actual evidence. Even their claims are inconsistent. You hear the president publicly, Rudy Giuliani, the so-called mastermind, talking about fraud, and yet also Giuliani publicly has said this is not a fraud case. So they're all over the board."
