Liberal Activists Claim this Restaurant’s Name Is Racist, But Is It Really?

Peter Turner opened his first restaurant in Colorado, almost twenty years ago. He named it Illegal Pete’s, in part to honor his father and also because that was the name of a bar in a favorite novel. The first restaurant has been so successful it has become a chain. It’s not just customers who like the place – many of Turner’s employees have been with him since the beginning, and the average tenure is nine years.

Now Turner is attempting to open a seventh restaurant in Fort Collins, and he’s facing opposition. Liberal activists are demanding he eliminate the world “illegal” on the basis it is racist. In a response on his blog, Turner said he wouldn’t be making any changes. Instead, he told the complainers:

We welcome you, and all humans, to visit our restaurant; to get to know us, and to form your own opinion, and hopefully create a meaningful relationship with Illegal Pete’s.

  • The signs of the end times are everywhere…

    As we witness such things as the spread of globalism, the building of a one-world church, the increase of wickedness, the breakdown of the traditional family, the destruction of that priceless bastion of liberty called America, the normalization of homosexuality, the callous murder of babies, the filthy pop culture, the breathtaking increase in governmental surveillance, we become fearful, uncertain, frustrated, angry, and discouraged, but this is because our minds and hearts are too focused on things of this world rather than things above. Too often we have the same short view that “conservative” unbelievers have rather than the long view that comes from the light of Bible prophecy…

    The devil is the god of this world, and his handiwork is evident everywhere, but he is not God and he is not in control of the times and the seasons…..

    “Daniel answered and said, Blessed be the name of God for ever and ever: for wisdom and might are his: And he changeth the times and the seasons: he removeth kings, and setteth up kings: he giveth wisdom unto the wise, and knowledge to them that know understanding” (Dan. 2:20-21)…..

    We should stand in the confidence that the present evil is exceedingly temporary and will soon be cut down.

    Come Lord Jesus.

            Ray, I’ve just been reading “discus_s…” and was surprised to read the request that you keep your comments “short and sweet”. I think you have mastered the art of “sound bite” communication. Sometimes, I’ve wished you would say more. I tend to “ramble on” in an attempt to head off being misunderstood. It’s rough saying something and a listener goes away with an entirely different opinion about what you said. You say so little, but I think it comes through quite clearly.

            I guess the Muslims are too stupid to understand that if they kill Christians who die in Christ, they will live forever in God’s kingdom of Heaven. The muslims then don’t gain a thing, but have contributed to the strengthening of God’s army.

    • Frank C.

      You are a hypocrite! You profess GOD and Jesus, yet you judge others when only GOD should. It amazes me how conservatives and the Religious Reich hide behind religion in the name of hate and bigotry. From your photo, it appears that you were / are in the military, but after reading your comments, I have my doubts. Most service people fight for and defend all citizens of this great country, they don’t pick and choose who deserves their service. If you are in the military, than shame on you for not being a stand up service member. If you’re not in the military, than shame on you for pretending to be a respected member of the military service!

      • brucefandrews

        It would appear that you are not a believer in Christ Jesus. I pray you will find GOD before it is too late. Satan will attack Christians more and more but in Christs name we have the victory. With the gospel armor we are able to find off the fiery darts of Satan!

          Amen brother ‘ let him do his worst ‘ in the end GOD will have the final say.

      • Ben

        You give evidence against yourself, and establish that you jump to conclusions.
        Example:
        (1) Jumping to the conclusion “Ray” is or was, Military. He may well have been, but you jump to another conclusion:
        (2) You think military people have no right to an opinion, or that their willingness to fight to protect your opinions does not extend to them? You confuse them with our politicians, who regularly pass laws, exempting themselves from the burdon of those laws.
        (3) How would you know what sort of service he did in the military, or not?

        Do you not understand that from the earliest days of this Republic, it was established that putting on a uniform, and serving in the Armed Forces, was not to be construed as giving up your citizenship. In other words, we do not lay aside our citizenship to serve in the military. Evidence of that can be found in the UCMJ, if you care about it.

      • conductor1

        What the hell are you talking about? The subject here was forcing the owner of a business to change its name for the sake of liberal political correctness. I don’t need God to tell me political correctness is a destructive acid eating away at the foundations of our country. I see nothing in Ray’s post to disparage the military. Hate and bigotry? Look in the mirror. Despite a lot of photo op “support”, it is liberals who go out of their way to disparage law enforcement and weaken the military. Will it really be a surprise if police and military stop putting their lives on the line for folks that bash them. They are human, too.

        • Charles L. Mays

          God moves in mysterious ways conductor1. Maybe HE is talking directly to you but you are not listening!
          Perhaps He wants you to surrender your will to Him so that He can save you from all that is taking place on this corrupt world. If you were the only one living on this globe, He would have come to die for you on Calvary’s Cross over 2,000 yrs. ago. Be still and listen to His still, strong voice in your soul (John 3:16)

          • conductor1

            Speaking out against political correctness has nothing to do with my relationship to God. He doesn’t like PC either, and I hope you don’t. “The know-it-alls stray far from the knowledge of God.” – Psalm 73:11.

        Relax, Frank. Everything that Ray says is prophesized. Of course, I believe that most posting here will fight for our country, but so many feel impotent in the face of so much evil, we cling to our faith, our love of God, and the knowledge that better times are coming.

But you don’t need to lay it on so thick, short and sweet will do so we will all know you are a person of religion. Remember “the Lord helps them that helps themselves” so lets fix this problem.

      • Ben

        Am I to understand you are religious? If you are, can you tell me where to find the quote you mentioned? (Remember “the Lord helps them that helps themselves”…) has been quoted for years, and in many situations, but no one ever told me it was from some Holy Book, or religious denomination. I always thought it was from people who really didn’t believe in God (sort of like saying, “don’t hold your breath”). I ask because I’m certain it is not in the Bible, which is the sum total of everything I think God has had to say to his sinful, fallen world.

        • disqus_sTpvkg7Dzr

          I never said it was a religious quote or in any religious book but it is a very good and ranks right up there with don’t put all of your eggs in one basket. So please stay on topic with what the conversation is.

    Illegal doesn’t have any connection to a particular race. Anyone could come in to the United States illegally regardless of what their heritages. Obviously the Liberals have too much time on their hands, probably because they’re sitting on their butts collecting welfare and food stamps, but they have to drum up these courses that make no sense at all. Perhaps it would be a good idea for them to get a job and start paying taxes instead of living off the blood sweat and tears of the working class of the United States. The only racists here are the liberals

    • Lonnie

      You know some of us did work and pay into the taxes for food stamps and disability income and I am legal think before you talk.

      • Maggietish

        This is in reply too Lonnie. I do think before I speak and I believe what I say. Illegals are just that, they are illegally here in the United States. I work two jobs just to survive and I’ve never gotten any welfare or food stamps nor would I expect to. The government is not my source of income. People who work in the United States should pay taxes so do you expect to be applauded for that? You say that you’ve worked and paid taxes and are on Medicaid and food stamps so are you saying because of the taxes that you may have paid for the period of time you’ve been in the United States illegally that justifies you getting entitlements from the government for the rest of your life. The enticements that you are rnjoying are all paid by United States citizens who have paid their taxes for a lifetime

        • Lonnie

          born and raised in U.S.A. like my mom and dad and there mom and dad and on and on, the reason we pay taxes is in part for when we get sick or injured and can’t work two jobs. Are you that dumb or are you acting as your other job?

      You are a bold faced LIAR, and everyone reading your BS comment knows it. Conservatives don’t complain about this sort of thing, and actually USE the term illegal.

            “Conservatives don’t complain about this sort of thing, and actually USE the term illegal.”. Just agreeing with you. But if it will make you feel better I’ll delete it, and this one too. Let me know.

      • eddie47

        Conservatives believe that Pete is an ILLEGAL and should be deported. Conservatives complain about that all the time so I believe you are the one being “willfully ignorant”.

    What does the word “illegal” have to do with race? It just means a violation of the law, by anyone of any race.

    • Rudy McGillvray

      Read the above comment by myself

    • Ben

      I had not noticed that Illegal aliens were in anyone’s mind as a race of people until you opened your mind to the public. Why do you have this preconception that race must have something to do with it? I do applaud your effort to recognize that aliens who are not here legally are illegally here. Perhaps you are just so closed minded that offence comes at you from every direction.

      • JimH

        Hi Ben.The article is about some people who believe the name “Illegal Pete’s” is racist.
        I’m questioning why they believe race is involved. How does that make me closed minded?
        If I saw the restaurant for the first time I would have wondered what Pete did.
        The fact it isn’t called “Illegal Pedro’s”(Spanish for Peter), lets me know he isn’t an illegal alien.:-)

        • Ben

          It appears to me that I’ve misunderstood your posting. Sorry if I’ve caused confusion on that. Perhaps it was a predisposition based upon the articles title: “…Restaurant’s name racist…”.

      • Edward M Ritzmann Jr

        Illegal is on the minds of these damn Liberals.

    • CHABSENTIA

      I would imagine that they associate the word “illegal: with illegal aliens and they claim that people who complain about illegal aliens are Racist.

      • DLynn

        I’m glad to see the word “claim”. I have worked with the Mexican community for many years tutoring in English and assisting in other areas with legal issues. My husband and I helped a Mexican family for over a year rebuild their home after Hurricane Charlie destroyed it. During that year I worked relentlessly within their community distributing clothing and food to those in need. I have a daughter-in-law that is Mexican and the mother of my 3 grandsons. My ex son-in-law is Mexican and the father of my two grandsons. We brought a child from St. Lucia West Indies to live with us for 6 months for medical treatment to save her sight due to Keratoconus (disease) and are now in the process of trying to adopt her (St. Lucians are dark skinned). There is no way you could call my husband and I racist because we strongly believe we are all God’s children. With that said, I am against the blanket amnesty now being proposed for a few reasons. Yes, we need some immigration reform but to grant them amnesty is not the way to go. This is definitely not working together to solve problems. Many people have come to the U.S. following our laws to gain citizenship. Those who cross the border without any documentation are here illegally – as in not abiding by our laws for entry into the U.S. We have become a society that is overly sensitive – and this is a prime example of how people need to buck up and get over it. Illegal Pete’s being seen as racist is totally ridiculous.

    racism
    [rey-siz-uh m] /ˈreɪ sɪz əm/ Spell Syllables
    noun
    1. a belief or doctrine that inherent differences among the various human races determine cultural or individual achievement, usually involving the idea that one’s own race is superior and has the right to rule others.

    3. hatred or intolerance of another race or other races
    I do not see illegal as a race in the definition.

      • dragon6actual

        Agreed John – they are NOT “undocumented citizens”, which was my point. They are here illegally by virtue of walking across the border (the vote walker program) with no regard to said border. In several countries across the globe an illegal crossing will be met with a bullet.

        Once here, many of those clowns insist on proudly waving the Mexican flag on US soil (all the pride for mother Mexico – just not enough to stay home and build something… like a decent society). Try waving the Stars and Stripes south of the border and see how long it takes before you are incarcerated.

          dragon do you not know that they don’t just walk over the border, and their is undocuments from many countries, lets not forget that this was once all of their land, the natives of Mexico, just like other natives of this country, that their land was taken from, and still people in our gov, in 2014 want to rule on the natives land that they was forced to be on, once again they want to force them to have the pipe line on their land, I am a white human that knows my history and theirs, just maybe if they had taken out all that came to their land, they wouldn’t be going through this, they greeted us with kindness, and died from this, and imprisoned by the white faced.

            there were No mexicans until the spanish came over and named the country. they assimilated with the natives and hence, mexicans. we have American Indians, also mexico was paid for land, as well as we fought for it, remember the Alamo? the past in history, they are illegal aliens.

          • Nancy Fitzgerald

            @Jeanette I did not call them Mexicans, I said natives of Mexico, for that is what it is called now, Mexico, so on this part I should of said the native land before it was called Mexico, I fully understand that the Spanish concord that land, and took what they wanted, there was very few that assimilated willingly, and really they was paid for the land, and we fought for it, all in the same sentence, that means they and we took the land and everything else, from the very beginning not just in that region, its really nice how you are so much smarter then me, I just stated history, and I know technically they are illegals, and I was saying they don’t just walk over, many from many countries fly in, not just from Mexico, and so was our ancestors when they first got here, except the natives welcomed them, and for that they got them sick and murdered, so thanks for your smartness,, LOL

          • dragon6actual

            Nancy – I was going to remind you that Mexico did not exist until Spaniards invaded southern North America, slaughtering and breeding indineous races (Maya, Aztec, Olmec, etc.) to virtual extinction, but Jeanette beat me to it. Mexico did not declare independence from Spain until 1810, and was not recognized as a sovereign nation until 1836.

            By your logic, why are the Spanish speaking people not returning to Spain? And yes, our ancestors did the same to the original inhabitants of what is now the United States, but there many programs in place to make right the wrongdoings of the past. Tell me – what has the government of Mexico done for the tribes that were all but wiped out by their Spanish ancestors?

          • Nancy Fitzgerald

            @dragon I am so trying to find what I wrote that people are twisting what I said, but I will say I said natives of Mexico, when I should of said natives of North America, but I didnt, I just could not bring it up, so you have better memory then me, for that one thing, of course I should of detailed more, I have read it over and over, and cant see why everyone has got my comment so wrong, in less they just want someone to jump on, I can take it ,I know the truth, so I only see one comment, tell me what I said, its not in my email or on comment board.

          • 77099

            don’t know where you live Nancy, but they actually do “just walk over the border” . Been there and absolutely saw it. Further, one of my representatives in Washington reported some years ago: At the border: school buses arrived and parked on the Texas side, meantime taxis and autos arrived in Mexico. Children left those, walked across the border and climbed in the school buses and were driven to school in Texas. In the pm the reverse happened. This is just one example of help being given to Mexico. Meantime I expect more than 100,000 illegals live in my little town. A very tiny town.

          • cindy

            you are uninformed and ignorant – the land was won in a war, we had all of mexico,we gave most of it back to them-unlike the ways of all other countries who kept all the land they conquered from others-the Indians took it from other Indians the Spanish took it from them,getting back to California and Texas and new mexico they became Americans,we did not take their land from them,they kept their ranches,farms,homes-they just became U.S. citizens Americans- they never crossed the rivers,deserts to go back to the wonderful life of mexico-I have never heard of Americans trying to escape the good life here except those who are running from the law or the draft (those are the kinds of people I don’t want in our country ) good bye to the trash.If you don’t like America LEAVE..PLEASE GET OUT >LEAVE DON’T COME BACK !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

          • Nancy Fitzgerald

            @cindy thank you for liking me so much, yes there was a war and we took their land, and I am happy to be an American, I am just honest about our history by the way you are the only uninformed ignorant trash here, for I don’t call names in less I am called names first, so who is trash, you are so special thank you

          • Mrs. Smith

            AMEN- We don’t need any more brain dead moronic drooling fools here. Let them go live in Mexico. See how that works out for her as an ILLEGAL there.

          • susan

            NANCY! What a foolish conglomeration of “facts” you have strung together to create a conclusion! If we follow that line of reasoning, then the whole world belongs to the Middle East because Adam and Eve were the first occupants. Or, Noah and family re-populated there. Go back and read Texas history. The battles were fought and won and lost, and the boundaries were set. Following your reasoning, there would be no private property help anywhere in the world. We would all be subjected to DNA tests, and then the DNA-er’s that most closely “matched” the earliest people who lived in those areas would then “own” the land? Do you hear yourself?

            HISTORY is the record of the people’s of the earth spilling all over the land masses and multiplying. It is the chronicle of folks who were adventurous and courageous enough to build ships and venture into the unknown seas. To move and explore and settle, people had to face disease, hunger, storms, disaster, marauders, pirates, weapons, evil, etc.

            WHO gets to decide who the very earliest people in an area actually were? THAT DOES NOT MATTER! The people who are alive on the earth right this second did NOT get driven from their homes by marauding Europeans. :You want to erase HISTORY? So, England, France and Spain own the U.S? We forget the Pilgrims, the colonies and the Revolutionary War?

            Nancy, you have been listening to very uneducated people who twist facts to help them break the laws of this and any other sovereign nation. All of that reasoning is just DRIVEL., Nancy, you are too thoughtful to be thinking like this. Start reading history and literature. Educate yourself. Learn to spell. We all have the opportunity to become what we choose in this country. No one is telling you not to read, not to get an education, not to learn to play an instrument or speak another language. Go for it. Harvest for yourself the true wealth that only knowledge can bring. Read the book of Proverbs every day…one chapter for each day of the month. Read it all month, and then start over again each month. At the end of a year, you will be much wiser.

            All of human history cannot be negated by people who want to break the law. You know, Nancy, it is a human vice to make excuses to justify bad behavior. Men and women who commit adultery usually point at some deficiency in their spouses to justify their own deceit and betrayal. BLAME SHIFTING is insidious. It camouflages the truth. It is only the truth….that we know…that sets us free: the TRUE TRUTH.

            You can only “know” if you work at it. So LEARN! It is education + virtue that elevates a person…not the government.

          • Nancy Fitzgerald

            @susan what are you talking about, I cant find what I wrote that makes you want to say those things, and I would never go by just Texas history. thank you smarter one.

          • Wingedgodd3ss

            Thank you for attempting to educate Nancy but I think it’s s lost cause. She obviously attended public school.

      • Nancy Fitzgerald

        @John Steel, so you mean like all the Americans that hire the undocumented, what ever country they come from, so I say to you Americans that don’t want any undocumented here you better start protesting the Americans that hire them for cheap labor, the facts are that Americans don’t want that for the prices of goods would go up, and Americans have got lazy, and don’t want to do the work that the undocuments will do, and this is the reason the repubs don’t want anything done on immigration, for it will hurt the rich, it will hurt the poor too, but they don’t care about the poor, even the poor in their own party, so John think about it, and don’t forget this country was built by immigrants.

        • 10-Nov-1775

          Documented Immigrants, True. But don’t act like the democrats are poor, don’t act like they care more about the poor than the republicans. And don’t act like most of the problems in this country are not fabricated bullsht from the the left. At least the right has family values and moral values. I’M not BF some guy. I’m not marrying some guy. You can’t have babies using the wrong hole even in an opposite sex marriage but there is no right hole when it’s two guys.

          • Nancy Fitzgerald

            @CA Loser so tell me who is holding up all these bills, like jobs bill infrastructure bill, and many more, but with that I wont say that the dems are perfect, fabricated bs come on you can go to any city and see it, so that is BS,, please the right is just on the down low, morals please, I live in Vegas, and I don’t care what side of the boat it is, morals be dam, it doesn’t matter who they are cheating with, male or female, and I don’t care if your from the south north west east, lots of people don’t have morals, what ever party you are, and I know many repubs, you are not fooling anyone, you might have, but don’t say all of you., any how thank you for your comment.

        • susan

          Nancy, stop posting until you get an education. You are embarrassing yourself.

            @susy and wingnut have a good life, thanks for being my friend, im so sorry I am not educated enough for you, both of you are so superior then me, I wouldn’t want to embarrass you anymore, LOL

        • Wingedgodd3ss

          OMG-I am so sick of people like you who say Americans don’t want to do the jobs that illegals do. And that is plain wrong. Americans don’t want to work for $10 an hour like illegals will. And illegals work for that rate because 15 are living in a one bedroom mailing home the money. They are not making lives here and shopping for furniture. Ignorant people like you are what is wrong with America. Unfortunately you vote and breed.

          • Nancy Fitzgerald

            @Wingnut, OMG I am sick of people like you that wont take their head out,,,,,,,,,,,, of you know where, and I am not wrong, I was not just talking about money, I should of wrote more, I will say that some Americans wont do the hard labor that illegals will do, and ten dollars an hr. , more like six maybe seven, not even minimum wage, and like I said Americans are the ones that hire them, and really my friend, you know where you can put your opinion, good luck to you, for you need it.

      The best way for a wetback to lose the name was to either not come across the river, or to go home and fill out the paperwork to come here LEGALLY!

      • WVF

          Don’t know if you hot the first part of this or not. But if you didn’t let me know. As I was saying, on the other hand I know a lot of Mexican people that are hard working good people that want better for their families. I’ve seen the frustration that they experience and the ruthlessness, corruption in government, drug cartels, immortality ie… prostitution, slavery, our church pastor was a missionary to Mexico.

          I love you Scarlett but there is more than meets the eye here. FIFTY MILLION BABIES HAVE BEEN ABORTED SINCE ROE V WADE. They are the Americans that should be here.

          • Scarlett

            I don’t really understand your comments. I believe that America is for Americans and legal immigrants only. I believe that Mexicans need to stay in their country and do whatever it takes to make it their own. That is their responsibility. And as for the comment about the babies, I really don’t know what you’re referring to or talking about.

          • Danny Postlewait

            I agree with you. My posts are being ,for the lack of a better word, “messed with “. The first part of my statement was… I feel conflicted, on the one hand the illegal Mexicans that come to this country want the same benefits that we have as Americans. They demonstrate and hang their Mexican flag from balconies and demand that they be given all those benefits. And we have a president that bypasses congress and rules by proclamation.

            On the other hand….

          • edward martis

            how many more millions upon millions of illegals can the US possibly absorb without imploding ? every thing is maxed out already……..the country is almost ready to explode, as it is……..can you picture the USA in 10-20 years, if there is a US left, at all ?

    What about the name “Cracker Barrel”? How about the cleaner “Spic n Span”? I worked on a machine called a “Jig Bore”. And the list could go on. Political correctness has gotten out of hand. You can’t make everyone happy. Live with it and get over it.

    • Ben

      Political Correctness is a weapon to divide people. It’s method is to make everyone into an “introvert”, afraid to say anything to anyone. If every time you open your mouth to speak, someone from the PC police agency slams all manner of accusations against you (attempting to create a hostile environment around you) then they can silence you with out having to kill you.

      They use this argument to silence people who do not agree with them, especially so when their position cannot stand up to reasonable debate. The next time you see or hear some PC idiot express themselves against someone else s opinion, just reflect on the possibility of them attacking with some PC weapon because their rebuttal is insufficient.

  • old_salty_dawg99

    LIBERALS are IDIOTS to the bitter end and they see bigotry in all but themselves. That could be because they cannot catch and keep a mirror or because they are too STUPID to look in the proper side. But whatever the reason they cannot see what they are doing is far more RACIST than anything any one else is doing. Just look at their beloved Affirmative Action. It tells all minorities that they are both too lazy and too stupid to get anything unless LIBERALS give it to them. LIBERALS see racism in everything because they are the TRUE RACISTS. A prime example of this TRUTH is that almost if not every Democrat before 1963 that held office in DC were members of the KKK. Yet when Republicans forces LBJ to pass Civil rights Laws they all suddenly became Lovers of all minorities. It was those same Democrats who were proud to raise the rebel flags above Southern State houses and when it was no longer politically expedient they turned on those Flags and declared them Racist. So LIBERALS are RACISTS and BIGOTS for seeing racism in everything around them.

  • WilliamHarrington

    Definition: Illegal=not legal, ,how is this racist? If he had been referring to illegal immigrants he still would not be racist since there are many races which illegallyh enter this country. It appears that the truth hurts so much that any reference to the truth is enathema to a liberal.

  • BlueViolets

    This coming from the very people who think giving illegal aliens the rights of American citizens is fine but think a mere name of a place to eat is racist? I will never figure out their thinking mechanisms if they have any.

  • Pamela Rather Powell

    How is the word “illegal” racist? When I was in school almost 30 years ago the word racist was taught to us as discrimination or hatred towards people of an ethnic race other than yours. Apparently the person who is offended has discovered a new race of people the rest of us don’t know about.
    I am so sick of hearing racist this and racist that especially when it is not even being used correctly. Name your restaurant any name you want and those offended can KISS MY A**. Pete in Colorado- you have supporters everywhere across the country keep the name Illegal Pete’s and let the whiners sit in the corner and suck their thumbs while they wait for Daddy Oasswipe to come cuddle them and wioe their tears away.
    And in this case how do they expect to be taken seriously? They don’t even know the meaning of the word they are using to describe the word they find offensive. Stupidity is spreading like wildfire.

  • Sheila

    The name illegal Pete probably is offending to them because they are illegal aliens!

  • Lotsaruck

    So, let me get this straight. Liberals want to make the word “illegal” illegal because it is racist? Doesn’t illegal mean that it’s “not legal”? Unlike some languages, English has no gender bias in the spelling of words unless “il-legal” could be Italian for “the” but that’s not a gender-specific delineation. And if THAT is the case then “il legal” means “the legal” or “the lawful” and even liberals can’t find fault with that, can they?

  • ROB

    All you people who pretend you don’t know why the name offends the liberal PC crowd are full of crap. It’s the word “illegal”, combined with the fact that it’s a Mexican restaurant. It’s not cute, to act like you don’t get that. Having said that, I’m just as fed up with political correctness, as the rest of you. This guy should call his place whatever he wants, short of being obscene. As long as he makes as much money as he wants to from the restaurant, he should just ignore the idiots that won’t go there, because of the name. That’s part of what living in a free society is about. It’s possible the idiots could hurt his business, if they get enough attention. I hope not. The whimpering cry-babies who think that everything in the world has to adhere to their anal sensitivities should, if at all possible, should be put in their place, every chance we get. And if we don’t do it, they will only get worse, as time goes on. Most of those idiots have no limits. And they should never be coddled, or even given an audience. There are certain types of speech that should be limited to the appropriate recipients. And most of us have a pretty good understanding of basic decency, and can handle that concept with little or no supervision. But the PC crowd will never be satisfied, until they learn to shut the hell up, and block out what they don’t like, just like normal people do. And if they fail to find the ability to do that, they can spend eternity, writhing in pain, in their own self-imposed hell, for all I care.

    I would make it a point to patronize this restaurant. When was the last time 5 million U.S. citizens crossed ANY BORDER illegally…and prospered?
    Is political correctness going to redefine the English language? What difference does it make…most of the pukes that either come here illegally, or those that were born here….and yet…..do not like this country….are more or less illiterate and only learned to spell the word illegal because they happen to be one.

    Aside from this topic. I volunteer to deliver needed medical supplies to older, retired people….mostly minorities and in some seedy neighborhoods. In one black neighborhood, a reasonably nice home with a yard and bird feeders, has posted a sign….”No trespassing…Violators will be shot…survivors shot again.”
    This is meant as a joke…and most people would not be offended, some even finding it amusing. But, since the place does belong to a member of a minority race…would the political correctness police opt to ignore it….stating that a member of a minority cannot be racist or bigoted?

    WHAT!? Now the word illegal is racist. In that case then everyone in jail needs to be released because what they were doing, in order to get there, was illegal. They are all victims of racism!
    These liberals are such morons it is beyond pathetic. Wake Up America while we can still call it “The land of the free”.

  • Irene Elizabeth Grooms

    I thought this was the GOOD OLD (U.S.A. ) and if you come to our country you accept our ways are you can go back out the same DAMN DOOR YOU ENTERED IN. You ILLEGALS don’t like our way of life get out period we don’t need you here.

  • Edward M Ritzmann Jr

  • daveveselenak

    Liberals, fascists nowadays, are bullies that try to use their pseudo-intellectual superiority to bully but when push comes to shove they are nothing more than sissies of the utmost degree. They couldn’t punch their way out of a paper sack if their lives depended on it! I find it contemptible that we are allowing these punk-a$$es to destroy our country! REVOLUTION will be the SOLUTION! mInr, NSA!

  • don lavrich

    these liberal assholes need to get a job and a life and cut out all this so called racist bullshit. its getting old and its time to ignore these idiots.

  • Lloyd W. Murphy

    These human debris political correct wackos need to move to Cube or China for a while or just leave America ere they destroy it! Whatever happened to freedom of speech, in the 1st Amendment?

  • phxgeo

    Those who cross the border without following the laws are just plain CRIMINALS ….. they broke our laws. This whole liberal word game is DISGUSTING! A skunk in sheep’s clothing still smell like a skunk!

  • rocky63

    What garbage! By that I mean the idea being voiced and the people voicing it. “Illegal” is a common English word, appearing in all dictionaries. Performing an act which violates the law is illegal. Period. Crossing our border without approval is violating a law, making the action illegal. Those of other nations who illegally cross our border are illegal aliens. PERIOD.

    Some time ago the political-correctness idiots started saying we must change our language to say “undocumented aliens”. How long before the retarded liberals take offense at “undocumented”. Must we stop using the word “criminal” too?

    Even American Indians don’t call themselves “native Americans”. Visit some Arizona reservations and take pictures of the signs reading “Indian Jewelry”, or “Indian Trading Post”, or “Indian blankets”.

    Politically correct speech is a way that liberals can make themselves feel superior without actually having to DO anything! If they say “Native American” they think they are virtuous — but they have done absolutely nothing to help a single member of a tribe, to help educate reservation kids, etc., etc. They are self-important idiots.

    RULE 12: Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it.”
    Cut off the support network and isolate the target from sympathy. Go
    after people and not institutions; people hurt faster than institutions.
    (This is cruel, but very effective. Direct, personalized criticism and
    ridicule works.)

    RULE 5: “Ridicule is man’s most potent weapon.” There is no defense.
    It’s irrational. It’s infuriating. It also works as a key pressure point
    to force the enemy into concessions. (Pretty crude, rude and mean, huh?
    They want to create anger and fear.)

  • Glenn Sellers

    On what basis have these idiots used to decide that the word “illegal” is racist, because of illegal aliens? Maybe if the illegal aliens came here legally, they wouldn’t be called illegal aliens.

  • MASTERMECH

    I see zero relationship between “illegal” and racism. Did I miss some ridiculous definition of racism???

  • kim paulsen

    great name keep it along with redskins in dc send political correct idiots to the ER.

  • WVF

    Keep the name of the restaurant as it is! I am PI (Politically Incorrect), and I love it. You may be assured that if I’m in the area, I will be one of your patrons.

  • Dannie Poe

    I do not find it offensive. How can it be racist? Makes me wonder about the liberals. I do not see the name Washington Redskins as racist either. It’s name may refer to native americans but does it proclaim to be racist by its policies? In many ways it may just be keeping the native american heritage alive. The american indian may be this countries gravist miscarrage of justice. To this day many live in poverty on reservattions. We are now in the 21st Century and have not allowed the native americans the true title of fellow americans.

  • Kenneth May

    I would call the complainers idiots but I don’t want to denigrate the word.

  • EL

    The government does not know the definition of illegal. ILLEGAL is ILLEGAL. If we rob a bank it’s illegal. If we kill someone it’s illegal and what happens? We go to jail. We shouldn’t have to anymore. If some illegals get no punishment all illegals should get no punishment. It’s only fair.

  • Danny Postlewait

    I’ve been thinking and in this country today that could be considered dangerous by the left. Nevertheless that is the big difference between the right and the left. The left let’s themselves be led and are moulded by those that don’t know their left from their right

    Please, when will this stupidity stop? Who do these people think they are? They think it is their job to force every one to think like them! (they act like Muslims).
    Bravo to the owner for telling them to suck wind!
    The word illegal is now racist? Well, I can understand the liberal thinking that way, since
    most criminals are of certain races. To the rest of us, it is a catchey name for a cool restaurant!
    DONT YOU LIBERALS HAVE ANYTHING TO DO?
    I KNOW, GET OUT OF YOUR HUGE COMFY HOMES A TRY AND HELP PEOPLE.
    FEED THE HOMELESS, HELP FIND HOUSING FOR THOSE LIVING ONTHE STREETS, TAKE IN AND CARE FOR ANIMALS who have been mistreated or abandoned. There are many things you could do that would be helpful to society.
    Complaining about the name of a successful restaurant is trivial, useless and not even smart. Find something to do with your worthless life and let this man grow his business! PLEASE.

  • JohnB

    Think they would go for changing the name to “Undocumented Pete’s”?

  • susan

    I am missing something….Why would the name “Illegal” indicate a bias against anyone of any nationality, etc?
