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.

BOMBSHELL: FBI Admits Hillary’s Emails Were Found In Executive Office of Obama White House

WELL, WELL, WELL!

Bill Priestap, assistant director of the FBI Counterintelligence Division, has admitted under oath that the FBI found Hillary Clinton’s emails in the Obama White House, specifically, in the Executive Office of the president. Yup. No joke. From Judicial Watch: Judicial Watch announced today that a senior FBI official admitted, in writing and under oath, that the agency found Clinton email records in the Obama White House, specifically, the Executive Office of the President. The FBI also admitted nearly 49,000 Clinton server emails were reviewed as result of a search warrant for her material on the laptop of Anthony Weiner. […] U.S District Court Judge Royce Lamberth ordered Obama administration senior State Department officials, lawyers, and Clinton aides, as well as Priestap, to be deposed or answer writer questions under oath. The court ruled that the Clinton email system was “one of the gravest modern offenses to government transparency.” https://twitter.com/TomFitton/status/1120718496034324487?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1120718496034324487&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Filovemyfreedom.org%2Fjust-in-49000-of-hillary-clintons-email-discovered-obama-in-hot-water-given-where-they-were-at%2F Where’s the MSM on this one, huh? Too preoccupied with doing everything in their power to keeping the uninformed uninformed? Sounds about right. Why would anybody ask Hillary Clinton to give advice to 2020 Democrat presidential candidates on how to defeat Donald Trump? Where’s the logic? TOO FUNNY!

HERE WE GO: Supreme Court Signals Support For Trump’s Citizenship Census Question

This is a big one, folks!

It is looking more and more likely that the Supreme Court will allow the citizenship question to be added to the 2020 census. Democrats are likely to erupt, while conservatives will stand and clap. Here’s more information about what’s going down, from Bloomberg: Key U.S. Supreme Court justices seemed inclined to let the Trump administration add a question about citizenship to the 2020 census in a clash that will shape the allocation of congressional seats and federal dollars. In an 80-minute argument Tuesday that was both technical and combative, Chief Justice John Roberts and Justice Brett Kavanaugh directed almost all their questions to the lawyers challenging the decision to ask about citizenship. Kavanaugh said Congress gave the Commerce secretary “huge discretion” to decide what to ask on the census. Opponents say a citizenship question could result in a census undercount in areas with large non-citizen populations that could shift congressional districts and federal funds away from those communities. Far-left Justice Sonia Sotomayor noted, “There’s no doubt that people will respond less. That’s been proven in study after study.” Stay tuned… As most conservatives are well aware, Obamacare was unconstitutional from the start considering it originated in the Senate. Now, an appeals court has ruled in the Trump administration’s favor on a major issue. What this means is the Supreme Court may wind up ruling on the Redistribution of Wealth Act’s Affordable Care Act’s legality before the 2020 presidential election. In other words, it’s kind of a big deal. https://twitter.com/CNNPolitics/status/1116474275999956992?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1116474275999956992&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftherightscoop.com%2Fbreaking-trump-just-put-the-lawsuit-against-obamacare-on-speed%2F One woman was rumored to be in the running for the SCOTUS seat that went to Brett Kavanaugh. As it stands, President Trump has nominated two judges to the Supreme Court, both of whom made it through the entire process – Kavanaugh and Neil Gorsuch. Now, if Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s seat…
