London Cafe Called Racist for Putting National Flags on Food

‘Racists don’t have the right to eat.’ ‘Patriotism is racist.’  ‘Racist’ is the big leftist buzz word all over the world, not just in America. Station 164, a London cafe, has a tradition of putting small British flags with every plate of food. They’ve received many complaints since the World Cup, primarily on social media, according to local news outlet the Romford Recorder. They have no intenton of removing the flags. It’s tradition.

Station 164 is owned by Candy Merrett, 30, who has owned it for two years. Hornchurch sits in the London Borough of Havering. It wasn’t until the World Cup that people started complaining about the small flag that goes on the food, calling it “racist.” They have the British Union Jack, the Royal Wedding Flag, and the St George’s flags in the restaurant.

She took to Facebook to say: “Patriotic and proud not prejudice.”

“I really don’t understand why people are offended by this. People throw the flags on the floor in disgust, and it just doesn’t make any sense to me. We have some tourists that love it. They take the flags home with them as a momento.”

For her part, Candy says she has no intention of removing the flags. They have deleted the nasty comments.

“We are a little London café, we are British, English and Londoners. We will not feel ashamed to put little flags in our food. We will not be stopping. We are patriotic, not ‘pathetic’ as someone called us last week. We celebrate our country!”

And well they should. Patriotism is what defines a nation, what holds it together in harsh times. Without it, nations crumble. And when the left sees a patriotic display of any kind, they DELIBERATELY target that display. They do it here in the USA, they do it abroad.  It is an agenda to tear at the fabric of Western countries.

Stand strong, Candy Merrett.

Update: Station 164 is listed as closed on Google as of just three days ago, and according to British news outlets like Daily Mail, the family has been forced to quit.

Note: it’s not the first time this has happened. According to Breitbart a WWII themed restaurant was forced to remove a picture of Churchill earlier this year.
