A Woman Casually Told A Muslim-American Girl 'I Wish They Didn't Let You In The Country' During An Anti-Obama Rant At A Trader Joe's

Facebook – This happened today at the Trader Joe’s in Reston, VA. This woman was in a hurry so my friend (who is a Muslim woman) offered to let her go in front of her in line. That’s when she started talking bad about a different Muslim woman in the store (who was wearing niqab) and asking my friend why she didn’t cover as well. My friend replied it was a choice and the woman didn’t believe her and started talking about FGM and telling her “I wish they didn’t let you in the country.” That’s when my friend started filming.

The tone, the content, this face:

You couldn’t paint a more perfect portrait of a condescending racist white lady if you tried. Like how she thinks it’s the Obama talk that set the girl off when it is, in fact, more likely that she’s annoyed you just said you don’t want her in the country after she apparently let you cut in line (the lesson, as always: Never help anyone). And it’s all said with that self-satisfied smile with her vacant glare, one that might have even been kinda hot three decades ago but is now withered away into a melting mess of emotional and physical ugliness. That’s a kind of pure hateability you just can’t teach. And you know her shitty vibes don’t start and end with just Muslim and Obama talk, I’m sure she’s got lots of worthwhile opinions on what other people are doing wrong, how she’s being disrespected at work, what her kids and husband haven’t done that she’s told them so many times. Her very existence is castrating. And while I feel bad for the girl in this video, I feel just as bad for anyone who has to deal with her on a daily basis. A human black cloud hovering over all she touches.

Also how are you going to be racist in a Trader Joe’s? Organic, environmentally friendly food stuffs just don’t scream Islamophobia to me. Seems like more of a Winn-Dixie move if we’re being honest. But I guess even David Duke in sensible mom jeans here needs a good jar of Cookie Butter now and then, a testament to Trader Joe’s brand if nothing else.
