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.”

Sorry for the question but why do we need camo in space?
BUSTED: National Archives caught doctoring exhibit to remove criticism of President Trump from women
The National Archives were caught editing an artifact from the Trump administration to remove criticism of the president, according to a bombshell new report in The Washington Post.
The newspaper reported on a "large color photograph" at the National Archives exhibit marking the centennial of women's suffrage.
"The 49-by-69-inch photograph is a powerful display. Viewed from one perspective, it shows the 2017 march. Viewed from another angle, it shifts to show a 1913 black-and-white image of a women’s suffrage march also on Pennsylvania Avenue. The display links momentous demonstrations for women’s rights more than a century apart on the same stretch of pavement. But a closer look reveals a different story," the newspaper noted.
Dershowitz is running a ‘bizarro defense’ of Trump: Harvard Law colleague says ‘Alan is just completely wacko’
Two of the most famous names associated with Harvard Law School had competing appearances on MSNBC on Friday.
It began when Alan Dershowitz, a professor emeritus, was interviewed MSNBC chief legal correspondent Ari Melber about his new role officially representing President Donald Trump during the Senate impeachment trial.
Dershowitz claimed that neither abuse of power nor obstruction of Congress count as "high crimes" under the constitution.
Professor Alan Dershowitz, who has also been associated with Harvard Law for five decades, was asked about Dershowitz's argument during an interview with Chris Hayes.
