A group of Colorado residents are in an uproar over the upcoming launch of a burrito restaurant named Illegal Pete’s, out of concern the name will offend and stigmatize illegal immigrants.

The Boulder-based Mexican restaurant, owned by Pete Turner, has six locations in Boulder and Denver. A seventh location is set to open in Old Town Fort Collins in three weeks, causing controversy among residents who demand he change the name from “illegal” or face a wave of protests, The Coloradoan reported.

Mr. Turner said the restaurant is simply named after himself, with a reference to a bar in a novel he read as an English major in Boulder. He headed to Fort Collins on Wednesday to hold a meeting and plead his case with a crowd of about 30 concerned residents.

The community members explained the negative context of the word illegal, or the “I-word,” as some referred to it, The Coloradoan reported.

“Social context is hugely important,” said Fort…

Climate activists hate the US, they hate freedom, they hate free enterprise, they hate people in general, and mainly they despise themselves. There appears to be no limit to how big a lie they will manufacture to push their agenda.

It is beyond my comprehension why any US citizen would pander to them.

Obama’s lawless immigration plan is a gift to the 1 percent

Unlike most political issues, immigration is not really a right vs. left or Republican vs. Democrat issue. Instead, immigration is better understood as an elite vs. public issue where the elite in our society tends to support higher levels of immigration and where the general public tends to support lower levels of immigration. For politicians of all political stripes, the question on immigration is whether they will side with the elite or the public.

The Chicago Council on Foreign Relations confirmed this divide years ago in a survey that contrasted the views of elites and the general public on a wide range of issues, including defense spending, foreign aid, Islamic fundamentalism, promoting and defending human rights, strengthening the United Nations, treaties to reduce global warming, and, of course, immigration. The “elite” group responding to the survey was made up of nearly 400 opinion leaders, including members of Congress, the White…

NYT, AP Ignore Large Contingent of Socialists and Far-Leftists in NYC Climate March

NYT, AP Ignore Socialists and Far-Leftists in NYC Climate March

At Tea Party and conservative events, the press routinely seeks out any shred of evidence of far-right extremism, racism or even uncivil behavior exhibited by attendees. If found, it then tries to portray even one or a few such people out of thousands as somehow typical.

Rallies in support of liberals’ pet causes get a completely different treatment. The press almost invariably ignores rampant left-wing extremism clearly on display. Sunday’s “Climate March” in New York City, along with other smaller marches in other parts of the world, exemplifies the blatant double standard. The Blaze, Gateway Pundit, and others reported no shortage of Gotham protesters often uncivilly advocating an end to capitalism and its replacement with “a socialist future.” The Associated Press and the New York Times ignored it all.

Here’s what The Blaze’s Oliver Darcy found (Caution:…
