A Latina “for Donald Trump” is paying a steep price for choosing to express support for the GOP nominee at his recent rally in Tucson, Arizona.
Betty Rivas, owner of Sammy’s Mexican Grill in Calalina, attended Trump’s recent Tucson rally holding a sign that read: “Latinas support D. Trump.” Trump called her on stage briefly and, well, the rest is history.
Now, self-righteous thugs ironically outraged over Trump’s “intolerance” have no qualms expressing their own intolerance and have begun terrorizing this poor woman.
According to KGUN9, Rivas and her entire family are being threatened and harassed with vulgar, racist slurs. Her business is also now in jeopardy. The angry mob caught wind of Rivas’ identity after she posted the photo of her and Trump on stage on her private Facebook page:
While KGUN9 was inside Sammy’s Mexican Grill, the phone rang several dozen times, many calling Betty Rivas and her family racists, vulgar names and threatening their business.
Many of the Facebook posts we came across today were vulgar in nature. We captured screenshots of several that were later deleted from the Sammy’s Mexican Grill Facebook page. They can be viewed above in the media player.
When we asked if she regretted making the sign and going on stage, she said “not at all.”
“I haven’t done anything wrong; I have the right to say what I’m thinking – I can go listen to Hillary, I can go listen to Donald Trump, Bernie Sanders because I’m within my right – I didn’t do anything wrong,” she said.
The Pima County Sheriff’s Department visited the restaurant and now has an open investigation.
Indeed, Rivas did not do anything wrong. As if that even matters anymore.
