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:

Melania Trump brags her husband ‘sees potential’ in the gays
In a bizarre moment, the first lady announced that President Donald Trump is all for gay people.
Speaking to a crowd in Atglen, Pennsylvania, Melania Trump described the president as someone “who sees potential in everyone he meets, no matter their gender, race, religion or sexual orientation.”
She didn't use the typical term LGBTQ or even mention transgender people. But mentioning LGBTQ voters likely isn't a good idea in the Trump administration because of the laundry list of things they've done to hurt the community.
“Donald loves helping people and he loves seeing those around him and his country succeed,” Mrs. Trump added, claiming he has a “very big heart and a great sense of humor.”
‘Dangerously out of touch’: Ex-White House adviser slams Trump and Larry Kudlow for bragging about the economy
President Donald Trump's top economic and trade adviser Larry Kudlow is "out of touch," according to former White House economist Austan Goolsbee.
Speaking to MSNBC's Katy Tur, Goolsbee explained that Trump's celebration of the GDP is unwarranted because it took such a significant dive. It's a lot like losing $100 and getting back $60, said Tur.
"You score five runs in one inning, that is a good inning, but if you let up ten runs in the inning before that you're still way down," Goolsbee explained. "I think the numbers look very much like what happened in the job market over the summer. Where we started with a 21 million job loss, and we made back a little over half of that. And then we kind of stalled out. We're still adding jobs, but you also saw this morning another epically bad new unemployment claims number. You still have well over 700,000 people filing for unemployment insurance newly this week. Now we're seeing this on the GDP side. Certainly, this is a positive. You would not want a smaller number, but it has to be bigger and more sustained than what we saw today before we can say that we're back to normal."
Trump’s latest convoluted Biden conspiracy is that he thinks Antifa is the same as the United States
It's difficult to understand the precise reasoning behind President Donald Trump's latest claim made at a Tampa, Florida rally on Thursday.
According to Trump, Biden once said that Antifa is an "idea" not an organization. Biden also said that America is an "idea." Ergo, Biden thinks the United States is Antifa.
It's the same logic used by first-semester philosophy majors: My dog's hair is blond. Trump's hair is blond. Therefore, my dog is president.
Biden speaks about America as not just a country, but a groundbreaking government that had never been attempted in the world when the country was founded.
