The Corn Gods are not pleased when immigrants hurt immigrants

The corn gods are not pleased.

In a year of increased hate crimes against immigrants and people of color, and also rampant xenophobia, Islamophobia, misogyny, and anti-Semitism, I’m not surprised that the ire of mouth breathers has turned to street vendors.

And after an election where the pendejo who warned America about Taco Trucks On Every Corner turned out to be a Mexican immigrant, I am also not that surprised that an immigrant attacked an immigrant street vendor selling elotes on a street corner in East Hollywood near Los Angeles City College.

You might say that the alleged (but caught on video) act by Carlos A. Hakas, an immigrant from Argentina who presumably came to the U.S. to pursue his dreams of being a famous musician, is a hate crime fueled by gentrification.

Hakas — AKA Chuck Hax — has a history of harassing this Mexican elote vendor who has a regular spot on the 3000 block of Romaine St. Hakas shoves the cart over because he believes the cart is blocking the path of his boxer dog.

Apparently dogs are much smarter than Argentine musicians, they have figured out that they can walk AROUND an elote cart in order to get on with their day of eating and pooping. (BTW, PETA: I would rescue this poor dog from his two awful owners simply on the basis that they are both animals.)

Hakas’ girlfriend snarls at the elotero after he deliciously throws chile powder in the bearded face of the hateful hipster and wields an iron bar in a defensive manner.

This kind of hate in increasing regularly and is unacceptable. Not only is it wrong, but if this continues, the corn gods are going to rain down elotes on every corner.

Hey, that actually sounds good.

WTF, who takes their anger out on the elotero??? That’s like punching Santa Claus… why bite the hand that feeds?

This guy wrongly assumed that he owns the public sidewalk. Notice that there is a car parked ON the sidewalk, but does he knock that over? Nope. He just bullies the elotero because that’s what bullies do. Is there any truth to the statement that he first tazed the elotero, which is why he was sprayed with chili pepper & why the elotero brandished a steel bar for protection? Are the cops involved? Have they arrested this vandal? Karmic justice if they have & because it’s a crime of violence, it leads to his butt being deported.

Please watch the full video. He HAS a tazer in his hand and he even threatens the elotero with it! He has a PINK tazer, what a macho!

Que un inmigrante ofenda y ataque a otro inmigrante es PEOR. Jackass go back and crawl under whatever rock you came out from.

This Chubby Chasing Hipster Douche does not own the sidewalk. All of the street vendors and food trucks in LA should set up shop outside this jerks flophouse apartment. I hope he gets cornholed literally.

I get that you want to lash out at an asshole who knocked over a street vendor’s cart. However, there is no need for you to be an asshole as well by weight shaming someone else. If you are going to get on your high horse and demand compassion and justice of others, then you should model the behavior, asshole.

Stop being such a bitch. Weight shaming? Nu-male wimp.

Defender una acción estúpida te hace un estupido.. si no fue por racista fue por agrandado. Y la única consecuencia será que un más agrandado le rompa la cara o peor…

BIG TALK from people who don’t belong in my neighborhood either!
I dare any of you stalk me outside my place. I will take you all out.
That vendor and others have what is coming to them. Just wait and see.
This is not over yet…
