Immigrant-Operated New Mexico Taco Shop Sparks Political Controversy With Menu Items

Published

on

Since Donald Trump has been in office, a new trend emerged in the restaurant industry, polarizing patrons. Signs on the door saying who will be served and what customers aren’t allowed – typically those who support the president – are popping up all over the country. However, a taco shop in Albuquerque, New Mexico went a surprisingly different route with this “trend.”

Urban Taqueria is new to town and so are their menu offerings, particularly the new names each items have been given. Depending on what side of the political aisle your on, will determine if these choices fancy your palate or leave a bad taste in your mouth.

Urban Taqueria certainly knows how to serve up controversy. Local New Mexico news source KOAT reports:

An Albuquerque menu with a political twist. At Urban Taqueria, one will find tacos and burritos named after popular terms coined by President Donald Trump, such as “the immigrant,” “the wall,” and “lock her up.”

The owner of the restaurant, Hanif Mohamed, said the menu is edgy, but its purpose is to spark conversation during a polarized time in our country.

“Ninety-nine percent of the people who walk in, more than 99 percent, don’t seem to have an issue with it,” Mohamed said. “The menu’s not designed to insult people or hurt people, but it’s just meant to keep the conversation going as to what’s happening around us.”

But some think the menu is offensive.

“The way things are right now. It’s not good,” said Juan Hernandez. “We need to have respect for others and have limits.”

A University of New Mexico professor, Patricia Perea, said normalizing phrases that have been said in a context of hate speech is dangerous.

“It seems fun, it seems like you can make fun of this and maybe make it lighthearted, but you really can’t, you’re offending a whole community,” Perea said. “It’s normalizing the terms and potentially turning them into funny or humorous terms, and the more that you do that, the more likely people are to repeat them and perhaps forget the contexts in which they were said.”

But of course while there are some who disagree with it, others think it’s all in good nature.

“To me it’s not offensive,” said Christy Garcia. “I just think it’s interesting that they decided to be so bold with the names.”

Urban Taqueria opened six weeks ago. Mohamed said a lot of his staff are immigrants.

As long as liberal-run eateries can make their own rules, conservative restaurants can do the same. At least they aren’t saying who can and can’t eat there or allowing physical attacks on patrons in red Make America Great Again gear. Better yet, Urban Taqueria’s owner and employees are proving that immigrants can and are supportive conservative politics.

SNL Host Jokes That Senators Should Stab Trump Like Julius Caesar – WATCH

Isn’t it amazing how violent the left is? And they truly think they are funny. It’s beyond pathetic at this point. The left has gone so far left there is no more “center” anymore.

If this was a conservative joking about doing this to Barack Obama…what do you think would happen? The double standards are infuriating.

What’s sad… this hatred for America is being taught to our young people.

Via Breitbart:

Former Saturday Night Live writer and host John Mulaney made a joke Saturday on NBC, that compared President Donald Trump to Julius Caesar “a powerful maniac” who was assassinated by a group of senators.

Mulaney said, “It is a Leap Year, as I said. Leap Year began in 45 B.C. under Julius Caesar. This is true, he started the Leap Year in order to correct the calendar, and we still do it to this day.

Another thing that happened under Julius Caesar, he was such a powerful maniac that all the senators grabbed knives, and they stabbed him to death. That would be an interesting thing if we brought that back now.

SNL Ratings fall

Via Deadline:

Saturday Night Live alum John Mulaney returned as host for the third time last night. The show, featuring musical guest David Byrne and appearances by Jake Gyllenhaal, Larry David and SNL alums Jason Sudeikis and Rachel Dratch, drew a 4.0 Live+Same Day household rating in the 44 local metered markets and a 1.9 adults 18-49 rating in the 25 markets with local people meters. That was down from SNL‘s last original (4.3, 1.9) hosted by RuPaul with musical guest Justin Bieber.

The Feb. 29 show’s demo rating was in line with most SNL episodes this season, while the the household delivery was on the lower side.

The fall finale/holiday episode of SNL on December 21 continues to hold the season highs ratings benchmark with the return of Eddie Murphy as host (6.7 in metered-market HH and a 3.4 in 18-49). Featuring Lizzo as musical guest, that episode has grown to a 6.88 rating in 18-49 and 20.8 million viewers overall with delayed viewing on digital and linear platforms to date.

Versus primetime programming on the Big 4 networks last night, SNL is easily the No. 1 show of the night in both metered-market households and in 18-49 in the local people meters.

B-List Actors Alyssa Milano & Rosie O’Donnell Head Trump ‘Impeachment Task Force’

You would think this is hilarious satire..but it’s not. Has-been actors truly believe that America looks to them for political advice. I know..I can’t stop laughing.

This is how insane and delusional the left is. Remember how they told us to accept the 2008 election results and just deal with it? Here we are…and they still can’t handle that Trump is President. They stay on twitter for hours..ranting, whining and lying about the President. The left should never ever allowed in power. Let these lunatics be a reminder to you when you go to vote in 2020.

Dear Hollywood has-beens, Americans don’t give a flying crap about what you have to say. You ain’t going to impeach the President. He’s not going anywhere. For the sake of America..go away. Don’t lecture the people about politics. No one looks to you for what’s going on in our country.

Just wait until Trump wins 2020…..

Via The Daily Wire:

If you’re worried about the current state of democracy, fear not: Alyssa Milano, Rosie O’Donnell, and their rich anti-Trump friends are here to save America … by working to remove the duly elected president from office.

Feel better now?

According to a Newsweek report, a group called The Democratic Coalition has created a star-studded “Impeachment Task Force” (seriously) “seeking to hold Trump ‘accountable for his betrayal of America.’”

The task force is “designed to lead rapid response to Trump during the impeachment inquiry,” according to The Democratic Coalition co-founder and Twitter #Resistance king Scott Dworkin.

In addition to Milano and O’Donnell, the group has landed actors Ron Perlman, George Takei, Debra Messing, and Tom Arnold to use their “massive social media following to protect House Democrats in the front lines of the impeachment inquiry on Trump.”

“The task force launched a fundraising effort and basic plan on Thursday. The group has already started meeting and is set to go live with its website next week,” Newsweek reported.

Dworkin pointed to “Trump’s propaganda machine” as motivation in the creation of his elite task force.

“Trump’s propaganda machine is going to be in overdrive for the foreseeable future, so we need to be fighting every day, in every way,” he said.

“For now, impeachment is the only way to hold him accountable for his betrayal of America,” the task force’s chairman Jon Cooper added.

Dworkin is extremely optimistic that his ragtag group of celebs “will without a doubt, absolutely, overpower Trump’s propaganda machine.”

As you might recall, during the 2016 presidential election, Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton had scores of celebrities come out to support her publicly — such as Katy Perry, Demi Lovato, Miley Cyrus, LeBron James, Beyoncé, Jay Z, Bruce Springsteen, Robert De Niro, Lady Gaga, Jon Bon Jovi, Meryl Streep, Amy Schumer, and many, many others. As you might also recall, Hillary lost the 2016 election.

But it’s different this time. Or something.

“We’ve been one of the key groups fighting his propaganda machine for three and a half years,” Dworkin bragged. “We’ve learned a lot. And it’s kind of led us to this moment.”
