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.

Democrats Already Turning to NEW ‘Russia’ Conspiracy

You knew they would have something up their sleeves.

Robert Mueller

With the end of Mueller’s so-called “Russia” investigation turning up nothing and leading to no serious crimes or indictments, the Democrats who have daily pushed the “Russia collusion” lie are already pivoting to a new conspiracy maintaining that Mueller is meaningless or is even part of the cover up! For over two years, now, the Democrats have told us that Special Counsel Robert Mueller is an “honorable” man who is above reproach. But now that it looks like he is not indicting the president, his sons, or anyone in Trump’s inner circle, the Democrats are starting to throw their “honorable man” under the bus and blaming him for being part of a wide-ranging “conspiracy.” After taking several days off Twitter, President Trump jumped back on the social media platform Sunday to show that he is in fine spirits and tweeting that it is a “great day.” https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/1109787378242240514 But the joyous attitude is not shared by the dour Democrats whose Mueller god has failed them. House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler (D, NY), for instance, is now saying that Mueller’s investigation doesn’t mean a thing. Despite telling us all for two years that Mueller’s investigation was the key to Trump’s downfall, Nadler is now saying the investigation doesn’t mean anything because despite Mueller’s finding of no collusion, “We know there was collusion.” Nadler is sort of like Chicken Little crying the sky is falling despite the proof all around him that it isn’t. Democratic California Rep. Adam Schiff, chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, also jumped in on Sunday to insist that the evidence doesn’t matter because “we just know” things. Schiff claimed he trusted Mueller, but that his investigation is essentially meaningless. Schiff also claimed that Mueller hamstrung himself by not interviewing the president.  But there is a more…

Dems Hold Emergency Call On Mueller Report, Plot Subpoenas, & REFUSE Classified Briefings

Just because Mueller didn’t find anything doesn’t mean Dems are done looking.

Special Counsel Robert Mueller didn’t find any connection between the 2016 Trump campaign and Russia. After two long years of searching, Mueller and team confirmed what conservatives had known from the start. And yet, that doesn’t mean Congressional Democrats are done digging for dirt. You can expect the “Russia collusion” narrative to live on as long as President Trump remains commander-in-chief – and that could be for a while longer. Now, Dems are panicking – and they are looking to make big moves. From Daily Wire: Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) called an emergency conference call of Democratic leadership Saturday afternoon to discuss how to proceed amid news that Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report on collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian officials, may not result in a presidential indictment. “Today, we are having an emergency Caucus conference call at 3:00 p.m. E.T. to discuss the transmittal of the Mueller report to the Department of Justice (DOJ),” Pelosi wrote in a letter to colleagues issued Saturday morning, “While we do not know the substance of the report, we will have the relevant Committees of jurisdiction on the call today to update Members on where we go from here.” […] Pelosi also made clear, in her letter ahead of the call, that Democrats do not intend to let the issue of Russian collusion go, even if Mueller’s report — as suspected — shows no evidence of actual collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian officials to impact the outcome of the 2016 Presidential election. Fox News host Chris Wallace isn’t exactly 100% pro-Trump. There are times he’s in 45’s corner, and there are times he’s not. It is what it is. At the very least, Fox News can definitively say they are “fair and balanced” in that they provide…
