Woman goes on shocking racist rant at Phoenix restaurant: ‘I’d prefer the whole freaking nation be white’

Published

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.”

Republicans will never say that racism is ‘racism’ — basically because they’re racist

Published

on

Is there any expression of racism that Republicans will actually admit is racism? It's a question on a lot of progressive minds in the wake of Donald Trump demonizing female congresswomen of color with the "go back" canard that white nationalists and other assorted racists have long used to abuse anyone with heritage they dislike, whether that heritage is Jewish, Irish, Italian, African, Latin American or Muslim. Telling someone to "go back" is, in the ranks of racist statements, right up there with calling a person the N-word or some other rank slur. Yet, there still appears to be resistance among Republicans to admitting that is racism, which leads many on the left to wonder: If this doesn't count, then what could possibly count?

Republicans are ‘too cowardly’ to stand up for the morals they claim to have: Conservative columnist

Published

on

Conservative Washington Post writer Max Boot called out Republicans for being more than willing to compromise their moral and "family" values for President Donald Trump.

In a Wednesday column, Boot said that GOP "scruples have eroded faster than the polar ice cap." There's the matter of the "Access Hollywood" tape, the race-baiting, xenophobia and now there's the matter of Jeffrey Epstein. But it was just four lone members who were willing to denounce Trump's order to four Congresswomen of color to go back to the country they came from.

Trump thinks impeachment is over after House vote

Published

on

Following a vote by the Democratic House to table an effort by Rep. Al Green (D-TX) to approve articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump, the president gloatingly told reporters "that's the end of it," and mocked the resolution as a "ridiculous project."

"The House of Representatives rejecting a bid to launch impeachment proceedings against President Trump, and President Trump declaring victory," reported CNN's Erin Burnett. "Telling reporters seconds ago 'We've just received an overwhelming vote against impeachment, and that's the end of it.' He went on to call it the 'most ridiculous project.' Riding high now over how the whole saga over his racist tweets is playing out."
