Immigrant-Owned Mexican Restaurant Infuriates Liberals with Hilarious Trump-Themed Menu

Published

on

If you’re easily offended, the Urban Taqueria restaurant in Albuquerque, New Mexico, probably isn’t for you.

The immigrant-owned Mexican eatery is garnering laughter from some patrons and gasps from others after it unveiled a rather politically-incorrect menu that pokes fun at contemporary politics.

Instead of traditionally-named tacos or burritos, hungry customers can now choose from menu items like “The Wall,” “The Immigrant” and “Lock Her Up.”

As you might have guessed, some people are throwing a fit over the names.

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

But the restaurant’s owner, Hanif Mohamed, dismissed those criticisms. He said the menu is meant to spark conversation, which it sure seems to be doing.

“Ninety-nine percent of the people who walk in, more than 99 percent, don’t seem to have an issue with it,” Mohamed said.

Other creative menu items include “The Democrats,” “Fake News,” “Wikileaks” and “Bad Hombre.”

“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,” the owner added.

But as with almost anything these days, one liberal academic is wringing her hands and crying foul over the humorous restaurant items. Professor Patricia Perea from the University of New Mexico is trying to squash any fun, wagging her proverbial finger at the unique menu.

“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 told KOAT News.

Her university bio says that she teaches “Chicana and Chicano Studies,” along with feminist courses like “Introduction to Women Studies” and “Reproductive Justice and Latinas.”

“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,” Perea continued.

It remains a bit unclear how a menu at one restaurant would normalize already-common words like “wall” and “immigrant,” which are hardly new.

And while the offended liberal professor — a redundant term, admittedly — claimed that the menu was insulting “a whole community,” other residents just don’t agree.

“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.”

The restaurant owner also noted that many of his employees, like himself, are immigrants.

Here’s a wild idea: How about we all relax once in a while, and stop being perpetually outraged by everything under the sun? There doesn’t seem to be anything particularly hateful about the menu or the restaurant owner, and he mostly seems to be trying something new to drum up business.

After all, an immigrant entrepreneur adding his unique flavor to an area is quintessentially American … and if the joint’s tacos are anywhere as creatively-crafted as its menu, they just might be worth a try. Pass the salsa!

    America is made of immigrants that isn’t an issue. The issue is what the left has a hard time understanding is that the illegal immigrants are the issue.
    I love the menu. It’s a great conversational piece. Maybe all Mexican Restaurants will add these to there Menus.

  • Tommy Ryan says:

    Hmmm…a “mexican restaurant” run by a guy named Mohamad and deemed “offensive” by liberal college “professors”…hmmm…

    Is anyone else catching the whole scope of the story here?

    Liberal leftist mantra, offensively offensive offensiveness from the perpetually offensively offended…and a “mexican restaurant” business I still find questionable caught up in the middle of it ALL.

    The wool ain’t pulled over these eyes.

  • goodforall says:

    Why is that woman employed at place created for educational purposes. Last time I checked they don’t have a job field for reproductive Rights and Latino women studies or the other nonsensical crap she teaches that is called education. This is why colleges have become a joke and indoctrination machine they hire “professors” to “teach” nonsense that isn’t educational in ant shape way or form beyond mind control which is likely their goal anyway.

    Do people actually pay for courses called “Introduction to Women Studies” and “Reproductive Justice and Latinas”? No wonder kids are drowning in student debt and live in their parent’s basement after graduation. Somebody please give this stupid woman some crayons and send her to her safe space.

    Does Professor Patricia Perea Need her binky?
    You bleeding liberals are destroying this country.
    It is alright when you hypocrites offend the right, but when we we say anything at all it offends all you libs and you are all one way:
    “If the Democrats didn’t have double standards, they’d have none at all.”
    Hate speech by my definition is any speech that exposes the truth, and the plans of the DemonRats and their liberal friends that undermines their ability to create division by racism so as to cause major rioting within the USA thus allowing them by treaty to bring in United Nations Troops and thus satiate their Sociopathic plans, tendencies, wickedness, and bring in their New World Order by chaos.
    Justice is “Just” for “Us” ( Justus ), not for them
    2 rules apply, they don’t have any to abide by, and we have to abide by all of them they do not abide by.
    Politics attracts sociopaths- using power to hurt others gives them pure enjoyment and if it can be done through dishonest methods it makes it even sweeter to them. The Democratic party is the party of sociopaths.
    Thomas Jefferson is reported to have eloquently said “When the government fears the people there is liberty. When the people fear the government there is tyranny.”
    Our government is supposed to be a government of the people, for the people, by the people but the left has the opinion that it is a government of the government, for the government, by the government
    Compassion is great. Compassion without common sense is insanity. When the life boat holds 20 and you put 40 in it- it SINKS and everyone drowns. This Country does EXPONENTIALLY more for the needy and hurting of the world than the rest of the world COMBINED.Open borders= national SUICIDE. Period.
    The holy trinity of liberalism: Race ,Culture, and Gender filled with Political Correctness every inch of the way.
    “You Can Vote Socialism In But You Have To Shoot You Way Out”.
    THE PATH TO EVIL MAY BRING GREAT POWER, BUT NOT LOYALTY
    Saul Alinsky uses it in Rules for Radicals, too: ACCUSE OTHERS OF WHAT YOU ARE DOING.
    WHEN DEBATE IS LOST, SLANDER BECOMES THE TOOLS OF LOSERS -SOCRATES
    What I perceive as bi polar/schizophrenic is that liberals have fits when children are TEMPORARILY separated from illegal parents entering into USA, BUT….they condone killing and permanent separation of unborn , alive babies , from their parents. NOW HOW DOES THAT MAKE SENSE….!!!
    Liberals Backwards thinking processes caused by justifying their wickedness and evil ways.

    If the names were. Impeachment and the Russian collusion there wouldn’t be a problem at all

  • Greg says:

    It’s his business & he can run it how he wants to…
    If the restaurant was in a strip club, I would have chicken breast on the menu & market the appetizer, lunch portion & dinner portion as the
    A cup – appetizer
    C cup – lunch
    Double D’s -big juicy breasts (nipples $1 extra… server discretion)

    Professor Thunder Thighs there needs to join WW and get a REAL life. She could split watermelons with her thighs, they are so huge.

  • Ken Hecker says:

    I love the owner’s name – Hanif Mohamed. I hope Ilhan Omar is “red with rage”, or one of those favorite titles for articles around here.

  • Steve says:

    It’s very tiring when the left claims that they have the right to control the narrative. That the right must stay silent since in the lefts reality conservatives are nothing more than a bunch of deplorables. It seems that the ones who scream the loudest are those who come out the godless universities created by a so called “just system” of beliefs that they created themselves. When those who set the narrative claim to have superior truth is when the American public must stand up and face this self created giant or suffer the consequences that comes from these godless individuals.
