Telemundo has posted a highly disturbing video of a white woman screaming profanities at a Spanish-speaking family and demanding to see their passports. The offensive tirade captures our age of rage in this country. The video was taken by the Guatemalan woman who appears the target of the enraged diatribe at Andy’s restaurant in Lovettsville, Virginia. The incident is painfully reminiscent of the video of New York attorney Aaron Schlossberg that we discussed earlier in the year.
In the video, the woman demands to see the passport of the mother dining with her 7-year-old child and other members of her family.
She screams “Go back to your fucking country . . . You do not fucking come over here and freeload on America.” The scene continues outside where she seems to say that she does not want to see the United States becomes “Sweden.” President Donald Trump has often raises Sweden as an example of the dangers of undocumented immigrants. The woman screams how “I’m tired of this shit. … You [censored] freeload on us!”
The video is chilling and highly disturbing. Indeed, the most unAmerican display in the video was not the family trying to have lunch with a young child but the woman demanding passports simply due to their conversation in Spanish.
The restaurant has said that the woman will not be allowed to return, but the police arrived after the woman had left the scene with her male companion.
