Totally not a flight risk, this one.

Imagine how she’d react if someone awaiting trial for a similar crime in Mexico was allowed to enter the United States.

I tried to imagine it, but the amount of frothy spittle caused me to stop before getting too far.

That’s the question of a person whose education never included the word “consequences.” May she learn something new very soon.

Was it office Depot that had the ads with the easy button? Need to redo those and swap in a white privilege button.

Nothing like a good, old-fashioned self-incriminating video, eh? Obvious nutcase and not exactly the brightest bulb in the box, it would seem.

Jokes aside, this strikes me as someone expecting their white privilege to get them whatever they want here. She expects that she can get away with her role in this insurrection, as well as be treated as a privileged individual. She believes that, not because she’s “stupid”, but because she lives in a society that constantly reinforces her belief that she’s superior due to her race.

Easier, for sure. But as a white lady, i am completely befuddled about the behavior of these other white ladies. I feel like I grew up on a completely different planet from them.

“This is a work-related bonding retreat for employees and their spouses,”

Ballsy. Consider: As the owner, she is ostensibly paying for this vacation for her employees and their spouses. What the heck kind of flower shop makes that kind of money?

Answer: The kind whose owner needs a plausible excuse to skip town. Totally worth the cost.

What kind of “patriot” spends their vacation in another country anyway?
