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.
