In-N-Out Burger is the latest target of Leftist petulance.

And…another boycott.

More politicization of everything they don’t like by the rabid Left.

Liberals don’t comprehend a simple fact of life: everything does not need to revolve around personal ideology.

Liberals are the wildest virtue-signaling group in the world, always ready to dish out guilt at the drop of a hat in the direction of anyone who displays “bigotry” yet they, the Left, goes berserk and lumps together all things and persons of the Right Wing persuasion, and all who associate with said persons, and all inanimate associations with said person.If you happen to exist in the sphere of a right-winger’s existence, it does not matter how apolitical you are: they will lambaste you for your association with their most obsessively despised group.

And in today’s furiously polarized political climate and its attendant ubiquitous co-star, social media, the left politicizes all they decree is the enemy of their loopy leftist sentiments. Even burgers.

 

A public filing shows In-N-Out Burger, California’s famous burger chain, donated $25,000 to the Republican party this past week. After journalist Gabe Schneider broke the news, some people immediately called for a boycott of the restaurants.

The Hill reports California Democratic Party chairman Eric Bauman was one of the first to voice his opinion. “Et tu In-N-Out?” he tweeted on Thursday. “Tens of thousands of dollars donated to the California Republican Party… it’s time to #BoycottInNOut – let Trump and his cronies support these creeps… perhaps animal style!”

According to Fortune, this isn’t the first time In-N-Out has supported the GOP. They reportedly donated $30,000 to the chain last year, but they also gave $50,000 this calendar year to Californians for Jobs and a Strong Economy, an organization that’s supported Democratic candidates in the past.

 

The Leftist elites (and even those who aspire to a middling state of wannabe half-hearted elitism), swimming in disposable income, are not averse to tossing around symbolic monetary “actions” which involve boycotts, and their antonym, purchases/contributions toward their victim of the moment. Their rage, diffuse, lacking direction or focus, can strike anywhere, anytime, and is usually heralded by a clever hashtag or a GoFundMe visit, and always seeks to strike the conservative villain in the financial belly.

Personally, I don’t give a crap for In-N-Out.

I rarely eat fast food and most definitely avoid In-N-Out Burger because I don’t care for their food. A movement is afoot among conservative groups to turn out in droves in support of the chain. They are setting dates for conservative action (for a change), and all right-wingers are encouraged to spend their money at their nearest restaurant. I rarely involve myself in this kind of political playground scuffling. I think it’s silly, but really, how much trouble is it to ask us to spend a few dollars to buy a lunch and support conservative establishment that is being plagued by liberal antics?

I’m reminded of the In-N-Out Burger bumper stickers from the 1980’s and how some clever souls thought to remove the “b” and the “r” from the burger leaving a rather ribald support for the eatery.

Perhaps we can update it for today’s climate.

Monkey business in Florida.

Sometimes it seems to me that the nature of offense we take, and the measure of our sensitivities to said offense, are actually more hilarious and demeaning than the purported offense itself.

Dig?

Let me give you a real-world application of this suspicion that is currently playing out in our national theater of the absurd, otherwise known as “politics.”

Ron DeSantis, Florida’s Republican Gubernatorial candidate, “stepped in it” during a Fox interview this morning. He was “guilty” of using some loose racial double entendre and the typical Concern Crowd has been up in arms all day over his words which they have minced with all the whiny fortitude the Concerners can muster.

 

Republican candidate for governor Ron DeSantis said Wednesday morning that Florida shouldn’t “monkey this up” by electing Democrat Andrew Gillum in November.

Gillum is Florida’s first black nominee for governor.

Speaking on Fox News, DeSantis also called Gillum an “articulate spokesman” for the far-left.

There is a long history of black Americans being referred to as “monkeys” as a racial slur. “Articulate” is also a common dog whistle that preys on negative stereotypes that black people do not speak well.

 

Uh, OK.

Do the aggrieved actors in this hackneyed script fail to realize that they protest too much against obvious allegorical allusions; allusions everyone knows are understandable (regardless of validity) and not far-fetched, but which are plainly too rancid to utter in civil discourse while retaining your health.

They spend so much time crying that they must not be likened to monkeys and that to be called “articulate” simply implies that the typical Black speaker, even public figures, frequently sound like raging idiots whose English is barely recognizable behind slurred grunts and hoarse mumbles.

If anything, these “dog whistles” merely serve to dryly and cynically illustrate the valid stereotypes they condemn. The triggering such statements inspire are deserving of more guffaws than they deserve.  Behind this facade of concern and polite deferral, gritty reality lives in the trenches of slurs.

Here is DeSantis’ full quote from his Fox interview:

 

“Florida elections are always competitive. And this is a guy who, although he’s much too liberal for Florida, I think he’s got a huge problems with how he’s governed Tallahassee. You know, he is an articulate spokesman for those far-left views. He’s a charismatic candidate. And you know I watched those Democrat debates, none of that was my cup of tea, but I mean he performed better than the other people there, so we’ve got to work hard to make sure we continue Florida going in a good direction. Let’s build off the success we’ve had under Governor Scott. The last thing we need to do is to monkey this up by trying to embrace a socialist agenda with huge tax increases, and bankrupting the state. That is not gonna work, that’s not gonna be good for Florida. So, I’m going to fight for what I believe in because I think I’m the guy who can really lead Florida in a good direction.”

 

And those poor monkeys!

What did they do to deserve this? Apparently, given the righteous, social re-invention which the Victim Left is capable of summoning, we will soon reach a cultural pinnacle in which all allusions to monkeys (and all primates, surely) will be disallowed due to their striking and unfortunate adjacency to African phenotypes.

All things “monkey” will be purged from the English language due to pain and anguish the existence of our primate cousins confers on Black people.

Barrel of monkeys? Out.
Monkeying around? Out!
Monkey wrench? Gone.
Monkey on your back? Off with ye!

South African education minister boasts of the triviality of education.

South African Minister of Basic Education, Angie Motshekga, in appraising the basic academic track of teaching the subject of history in that country’s grades 10, 11 and 12, makes a stark admission which doesn’t explain much, just affirms.

 

Angie Motshekga

 

Now the [ministerial task] team will report back after completing comparative studies and research in countries including Russia, China, Zimbabwe and Rwanda.

The Basic Education Department’s Elijah Mhlanga says: “And making sure that our history books reflect correctly a true story of South Africa.”

Motshekga says she believes teaching history has a number of positive effects especially in a country like South Africa, such as contributing to nation building, social cohesion and cultural heritage.

 

But really, it’s all superfluous Western BS.  Education is for pissants.

 

“Yes,  education is not as important as everyone thinks. Africans have survived thousands of years without it. It is not for Africans, it came with the whites.”

 

I actually agree with Motshekga.

Education is not important, in and of itself.  It’s shallow mental status whoring.    It accomplishes nothing other than depleting your bank account and eating up your prime youth years with pointless lectures and exams.

You graduate and ultimately recall very little of what you “learned” and use even less of it in the course of your stellar degreed career.  You get a pretty piece of paper demonstrating your willingness to buy into the fold.  You hamster.

But, collectively, education matters a lot.

A culture that values the gesture of learning and attainment of general knowledge is a culture that will strive for common excellence and detail to well-being.

And for cultures that “have survived thousands of years without” – the opposite corollary holds true.

Apathy to knowledge and intellectual commitment turns a culture to shit; a tenuous society held together by the barest of threads.

Triggered!

 

 

 

The Jacksonville, Florida, Sheriff’s Office said there was a mass shooting with multiple fatalities at a downtown shopping-dining complex on Sunday and urged people to stay far away from the area.

“Mass shooting at the Jacksonville Landing. Stay far away from the area. The area is not safe at this time. STAY AWAY #TheLandingMassShooting,” the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office said on Twitter.
