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.”

Giggling Fox & Friends hosts gloat over Lewandowski hearing: ‘He gave as good as he got!’
The hosts of "Fox & Friends" giggled and gloated over Corey Lewandowski's contentious appearance before the House Judiciary Committee.
President Donald Trump's former campaign manager claimed executive privilege over testimony he gave before special counsel Robert Mueller, admitted he had lied in TV appearances and cracked jokes during five hours of testimony -- and the Fox News hosts were delighted.
"He gave as good as he got," said co-host Steve Doocy.
Co-host Ainsley Earhardt was laughing so hard she could barely speak.
"She said the truth shall set you free," Earhardt said, quoting Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-TX) through guffaws. "'Answer the question,' there was no question."
‘Trump people lie — we know that’: Ex-House GOP staffer shreds Democrats for letting Lewandowski off the hook
MSNBC's Mika Brzezinski denounced President Donald Trump's former campaign manager Corey Lewandowski as "rude" and "insolent" -- but her fellow "Morning Joe" panelists ripped House Democrats for letting him off the hook with obstructing their investigation.
Lewandowski turned the House Judiciary Committee hearing into a "circus," Brzezinski said, and panelists agreed he unlawfully claimed executive privilege, and a former Republican House staffer said he should have been charged with contempt of Congress.
"He was a mini Trump," Brzezinski said. "You can speak to Corey Lewandowski in real life, and often you can see someone who doesn't seem like Trump. In front of the cameras, he was playing for an audience of one. He was rude, he was insolent, he was stonewalling and, ultimately, being revealed to be a liar after being shown that he went on a national TV show, Ari Melber, it's not like a camera was shoved in his face, and he chose to lie to the American people."
Brian Williams compares Corey Lewandowski’s opening statement to the North Korean news lady
MSNBC host Brian Williams on Tuesday noted the similarities between former Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski and North Korean news anchor Ri Chun Hee.
"Corey Lewandowski, the former Trump campaign manager who is now considering a Senate run in New Hampshire, testified before the House Judiciary Committee today," Williams reported. "It is likely his North Korean anchorwoman-quality opening remarks were meant were one viewer (Donald Trump)."
Ri, who has earned the nickname "Pink Lady," is known for her enthusiastic reading of government-approved news.
