A woman went on a white nationalist rant at an Arizona restaurant after another customer asked to sit next to her.
Lennys Bermudez Molina went into Wildflower Bread Company on Wednesday to eat and work on her laptop while charging her car outside, and she asked a woman sitting alone if she could sit in the open seat next to her in the crowded north Phoenix eatery, reported KTVK-TV.
“She’s like, ‘Do I have a choice?’ and I said ‘Well, yes, you have a choice, that’s why I’m asking you,’” Molina said. “And she says: ‘Well, I prefer white — let’s just put it like that.’”
Molina pulled out her cell phone and began recording because she was so surprised by the woman’s remarks.
“I have never been told that somebody prefers whites,” Molina says in the video.
The woman was unapologetic, and said she would prefer the U.S. to be for whites only.
“Yes, that would be me,” the woman says. “I would prefer the whole freaking nation to be white. How about that?”
Molina said she was astonished, and she said the woman made her feel concerned for her safety.
“’Oh, it’s going to happen,'” the woman says in the video. “‘You’re going to be wiped out, trust me.'”
The woman then got up to sit outside, and Molina reported the incident to a manager, who asked her to leave.
The manager then walked Molina to her car afterward.
“We really embrace the diversity of not only our workforce, but of course our customers,” said Wildflour founder Louis Basile. “If a guest is uncomfortable in one of our restaurants, we’d like them to come to the manager.”
Molina said the woman apparently felt emboldened to express her plainly racist views by the political climate under President Donald Trump.
“These people have been empowered to voice their opinions and act on their opinions,” she said. “I want to expose the situation so that people are aware that these things are happening, that these people are out there.”
Buttigieg blasts Trump ally: ‘I’m not going to be lectured on family values from the likes of Rush Limbaugh’
Democratic presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg responded to two top Trump allies’ anti-gay hate this week by proudly defending his husband and his marriage.
“I’m not going to be lectured on family values from the likes of Rush Limbaugh or anybody who supports Donald J. Trump as the moral as well as the political leader of the United States,” the former South Bend, Indiana mayor told Fox News Sunday, after laughing them off.
“I am in a faithful, loving, committed marriage. I’m proud of my marriage. And I’m proud of my husband,” Buttigieg declared. “America has moved on and we should have a politics of belonging, that welcomes everybody – that’s what the American people are for.”
C-SPAN caller scorched by Muslim comedian for ignoring Jesus after she rants ‘gays are abomination to God’
Comedian Dean Obeidallah, who is Muslim, told a C-SPAN caller that Republicans are not following the teachings of Jesus Christ even though they may oppose abortion and other policies advocated by evangelicals.
"I am independent," Pam, who called from Arkansas, told Obeidallah. "I vote according to my conscience of who would Jesus vote for if he were here on Earth. And he would not vote a group of people who believe in murdering children in the womb, on gays, which is an abomination to God, on false gods from other countries."
Obeidallah replied with a lesson on the Christian savior.
Trump belatedly snarls at media for reporting a portion of his wall fell over — two weeks after it happened
On what must be a slow news day for President Donald Trump, he took to Twitter on Sunday morning to attack the press for reporting that a portion of his wall on the southern border toppled over two weeks ago -- and then blamed the collapse on "soaking wet" concrete and high winds.
Falling back on his stand-by "Fake News," the president tweeted: "Last week the Fake News said that a section of our powerful, under construction, Southern Border Wall 'fell over', trying to make it sound terrible, except the reason was that the concrete foundation was just poured & soaking wet when big winds kicked in. Quickly fixed 'forever'."
