Restaurant Owner Holds up ‘Finish the Wall’ Sign at Trump Rally, Immediately Receives Backlash

Just because a person believes in a secured border does not mean they’re racist.

A restaurant owner from the city of Charlotte, North Carolina is receiving a whole lot of bitter hate after a photograph was taken of him holding up a “Finish the Wall” sign at a Trump rally held in the area.

Grant Baldwin, a Charlotte Business Journal photographer took the picture of George Prisco holding the sign, which has now led to hundreds of people stating they are going to boycott his restaurant.

“I want [immigrants] coming,” Prisco says. “I want them coming legally.”

Now, hundreds are responding to the photo of him posed next to the three-word phrase, on social media.

“Anybody making that statement has to be aware of how that’s going to affect certain people who hear it,” immigrant advocate Kelly Carter says. “And could be hurtful, and damaging, and stereotyping.”

Carter is one of hundreds on social media sharing a post of the photo, and one of several writing a bad review for Prisco’s restaurant – Krazy Fish in Plaza Midwood.

“Someone was caught doing something racist,” she says. “And they need to be held accountable for that, publicly.”

Prisco says he’s not against immigration, and that his parents were Italian immigrants.

“I just want people to come here legally,” he says.

Carter went on to say that Prisco has every right to share his views, however, according to her, these views are “racist and xenophobic,” therefore people have a right to respond to that by choosing to go elsewhere for business.

This might not be a very popular thing to say, but Carter is absolutely right. Don’t conservatives do that exact same thing all the time? A company comes out in favor of a liberal policy position or candidate and there’s an immediate call for a boycott.

It’s been done a million times. No conservative, who truly values the First Amendment and the free market system, should be against these folks choosing to respond to Prisco’s political position by standing up for their own belief and opting to dine elsewhere.

That being said, it seems pretty obvious that Carter’s take on Prisco’s views are flat out wrong. Sure, there are probably some folks who want the wall built because they despise folks based on race. We can’t deny that. However, that doesn’t mean that every single person who is in favor of a strong, secured border is racist.

It’s a proven fact that Islamic terrorists see this weakness in our national security and want to exploit it. That’s not an unreasonable fear. It’s also not an unreasonable fear to want to keep criminals and dangerous cartel members out of our country. After all, we have enough of our own criminals as it is.

Let’s try to be consistent conservatives and not jump all over the left for employing tactics we use ourselves, as that just weakens our example and prevents us from being able to win over hearts and minds to our value system.

VIDEO: Mike Rowe Delivers Summary Of Democratic Candidates’ Economic Agenda

Published

on

Mike Rowe, America’s favorite champion of the average, blue collar worker, is on a promotional tour for his new book, “The Way I Heard It,” and stopped by “Fox & Friends,” where he gave a summary of the economic agenda currently being pushed by the Democratic candidates running for president. Here’s what he had to say, via The Daily Wire: “When you have a half a million Americans sleeping out on the street today…and then you also have three people owning more wealth than the bottom half of American society, that is a moral and economic outrage,” said Sanders. “So if you are asking me, do I think we should demand that the wealthy start paying — the wealthiest top one-tenth of one percent — start paying their fair share of taxes…Yes, that’s exactly what I believe.” The hosts then played a clip of frontrunner Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), who is also running on an aggressive tax-the-rich plan. “Taxing income is not going to get you where you want to be the way taxing wealth does,” she said. “We need a wealth tax in order to make investments in the next generation.” Asked about his response to the Democrats’ various economic plans, particularly Sanders’ 97.5% tax on the 400 wealthiest Americans, Rowe said, “Yeah, okay. It’s a free country. Float ‘em. Fly ‘em. Run ‘em up the old flagpole — see who salutes.” He then offered a memorable summary of his takeaway from Tuesday’s debate. “Look, in the end you’ve got millionaires arguing with millionaires over who hates the millionaires the most,” said Rowe. Rowe went on to say, “And I guess it’s a conversation we’ll have, but I remember a couple of years ago, I took my meager staff over the Reagan Ranch … One of the stories they…

‘The View’ Co-Host Joy Behar Argues Politics With Stranger While On Vacation; Says Trump Is ‘Destroying The Planet’

Published

Joy Behar, co-host of “The View” so despises President Trump that she cannot seem to allow herself, or the rest of the human race, a break from constantly bashing and slamming the man, even while she’s supposedly taking a vacation. Behar, who recently took a trip to London, ended up getting into an argument over politics with a complete stranger, claiming Trump is “destroying the planet.” Via The Washington Times: “When I was in London, I was in the war rooms and I got into an argument with a Trump supporter,” she said, NewsBusters reported. “All he said to me is, ‘Why can’t you give him a chance the way we gave Obama a chance?’” Ms. Behar scoffed at the idea. “Give him a chance? He’s destroying the planet!” she said. “He’s destroying the democracy. He doesn’t know what he’s doing. He’s writing stupid letters to Erdogan. He’s killing people far away from us who did nothing but help us. Give him a chance? That’s the argument you’re giving me underground?” Getting into an argument with a stranger wasn’t the only excitement for Behar on her trip. She was apparently pickpocketed as well. “I got robbed at Harrods,” Behar recounted. “They stole my wallet. I was pickpocketed, yes.”
