Democrats have been ignoring these kind of mafia tactics, rioting, and insanity. The double standard cannot continue and these people need to be held accountable. What do you think will happen after we defund the police or abolish the police? These people will take over

More than 100 members of Louisville’s Cuban community gathered at La Bodeguita de Mima, 735 E. Market St., Sunday to rally in support of the immigrant-owned restaurant, decrying the violent “mafia tactics” used to force immigrants to bend the knee.

The rally came after a controversial letter from Black Lives Matter protesters laid out demands that aim to improve diversity in NuLu, which is known for its locally owned shops and restaurants. 

Fernando Martinez, a partner of the Olé Restaurant Group, publicly denounced the letter’s demands on Facebook, calling them “mafia tactics” used to intimidate business owners. On Thursday, a small group of protesters gathered outside his restaurant, La Bodeguita de Mima, in protest. 

For about 10 minutes on Sunday, Martinez gave a passionate speech to the crowd with his mother and relatives standing alongside him.

“La Bodeguita is open to everybody,” Martinez said. “If you’re gay, this is your home. If you’re Black, this is your home. If you’re white, this is your home. If you’re human, this is your home.” 

He also condemned the criticism his business had received over diversity concerns.

he asked. “I’m the proud father of a gay son, and I’m gonna fight for him against anybody.”
