There may not be a single notion among leftists that is more groan inducing than cultural appropriation. These people flip their lids every time someone borrows an idea from another culture. To them you’re a racist if you act, speak, or dress like anyone who isn’t from your tribe, or if you even celebrate their holidays. And of course, it generally only applies to white people, as if they’re going to ruin every culture they touch.
Now this petty belief is ruining reputations and livelihoods. It Portland, Oregon, it forced two successful business owners to close up shop. Kali Wilgus and Liz ‘LC’ Connelly, who are two white women, started a burrito business several months ago called Kooks Burritos. It was an instant hit. Last week they revealed in an interview with a local newspaper, that they had learned some of their recipes during a trip to Mexico.
Explaining their trip, Connelly told the newspaper: ‘I picked the brains of every tortilla lady there in the worst broken Spanish ever, and they showed me a little of what they did.
‘In Puerto Nuevo, you can eat $5 lobster on the beach, which they give you with this bucket of tortillas. They are handmade flour tortillas that are stretchy and a little buttery, and best of all, unlimited.
‘They wouldn’t tell us too much about technique, but we were peeking into the windows of every kitchen, totally fascinated by how easy they made it look. We learned quickly it isn’t quite that easy.’
After the article was published, social media lit up with accusations of cultural appropriation. The outrage snowballed after a writer for the Portland Mercury slammed the two women for cultural appropriation, and “colonizing” recipes from Mexican cuisine.
‘This week in white nonsense, two white women—Kali Wilgus and Liz ‘LC’ Connely—decided it would be cute to open a food truck after a fateful excursion to Mexico,’ the piece opened.
‘The owners of Kooks Burritos all but admitted in an interview with Willamette Week that they colonized this style of food.
‘So let’s recap the story thus far: These two white women went to Mexico, ate tacos, and then decided they would just take what the locals clearly didn’t want to give them.
‘If that wasn’t bad enough, they decided to pack up all their stolen intellectual property and repackage it.’
The business was also eviscerated on Yelp by hyperventilating social justice warriors.
Somehow, I find it quite funny that there’s some sad sack out there, cautiously protecting his precious tortilla recipe from white people, but I digress.
Amid this backlash, the two women have shut down their business, seemingly without comment. Their website, Facebook account, Instagram account, and Twitter profile have all disappeared. And all because they were white people who had the audacity to serve burritos to the public.
Cultural appropriation is a bizarre concept when you think about it. It demands that you treat every culture like an animal in a zoo. You can admire them from afar, but don’t you dare touch.
It’s also a sign of severe cognitive dissidence among leftists. They claim they want everyone in the world to mix and live in peace, but they snap at people who dare to share another culture.
Ironically, it sounds an awful lot like regular old racism. It used to be that liberals fought ideologies that segregated races and cultures. Now these people are fighting for the same thing that racists in the past fought for; which is to maintain the purity of certain races and cultures. And just as it was in the past, this deluded belief is ruining lives.
What fucking race is Penelope Cruz?
You jerk off La Raza animals?
Penelope Cruz is Spanish, not Mexican.
She is white. Spanish is not a race.
White people gots no bidness making burritos.
Probablemente haga mejores burritos que tú …
Eso sería un “Sí”
ever heard of taco bell
Comment tossed into moderation.
Worst has been said by HCKS
And they rag on these women on computers invented by white people.
Sorry Deplorable. They are too stupid to get irony.
Oh yeah. Potatoes came from S. America. They are now illegal. Corn from N. America. Also illegal. Wheat originated possibly in Asia. Now forbidden by the fascist left. I could continue, but won’t. Water is probably next on the cultural Marxist left’s list
Of course, as always, the fascist left will exempt themselves.
Come to think of it – they write their reviews in English. Shouldn’t they be sued for cultural appropriation?
And why can you only rate funny, useful, or cool?
Seems like a slanted sort of rating system allowing only for positive ratings. It lacks a “boring” and a “shitty” option.
If these women have any sense, they have any property they own up for sale, and have been scouting other states where they can open up.
These SJW types will be all smug about running these women out of business, and will ignore anything they hear about them opening a shop in some other state. Two more makers gone, providing room for two more takers.
Fight for fifteen!!
I hope these women will move next door to me. I would pay a premium for their delicious-looking burritos. I haven’t eaten decent Mexican food in …. I don’t know how long.
Whether people admit it or not we are in a civil war. For some it may be a silent war. But as tyranny grows to you door step you will have to make choices….
I guess this means that you are not Italian you cannot make or sell pizzas !!!
Swedish meatball anyone ??? 🙂
Correct, only mooselimbs eat pork
Yah, we Welsh are stuck with melted cheese toast.
How sad that the civil war of the United States is being fought around the world, i.e. the Illuminati’s swamp monsters/CIA/ISIS vs. good people everywhere.
Taco Bell’s workers are Black. Run for the Border. And the Italians are really pissed all the Pizza hut an Dominos delivery folks are old people. The (((ChaosMakers))) and having a field day instigating hate and division. And dopes are falling for it. Sams club has now opened their doors to the EBT CROWD. Go in there now and a bumch of black kids eating up all the free samples. No place is safe anymore. Pillage and plunder.
Hold on here a minute, You all know the Chicken was invented in Boston, however Kentucky will dispute that. And the Cheese Steak Sandwich was invented in Philadelphia, and the Sub Sandwich was invented in Miami or in the Subway of Manhattan, and any style pizza was invented in Chicago on a pan. The mistake these Buritto Women made was spilling the beans how they stole the recipe. OPSEC, and keeping your traps shut. The Music industry is the same, they go off to these 3rd world countries like Africa Record tribal music then bring the drum sounds back to the US for exploitation. The art crafters in the US travel to Haiti and buy steal drum painted artwork to hang on the wall from the peasants for pennies on the dollar and sell them for hundreds in art shops in exclusive districts in the US.
Exploitation and theft is everywhere and Global, just like Illegals migrating to the US to steal American Jobs for pennies on the dollar. The US uses the US military to over throw Governments and Nations and kill their resisters, to steal their Oil resources and then export the stolen loot back to the US via Exon cargo ships and charge US consumers for High Priced Gasoline. We tax payers pay for the Robbery then get gouged on the other end at the pump having to pay high prices for the theft and then the theft product. So these 2 ladies did nothing wrong really, other than open their Yaps and Blow their OPSEC.
OPSEC is the lesson here, not exploitation which seems to happen anyway. Like a thief bragging on Facebook how he just robbed a bank and got away with it. The success and glory only last so long.
3 reason why most people get in trouble:
1. Greed – Theft and ripoffs
2. EGO – Bragging blowing your OPSEC
3. Drugs and or Alcohol.
YPDB, those women didn’t make any mistake in how they chose to make a living. The only mistake they made was submitting to a bunch of POS commie scumbags who were out to hurt them.If I had been one of those women there would’ve been a fight taking place.
Well, these two white monsters should give me the recipe and I’ll open a food stand and sell those yummy burritos. The Left can sling all the shit they want my way; I’ll welcome it. There’s a great burrito war a brewing and no better way to get it rolling than to sell some tostadas in the open market.
I make tacos and burritos using amaranth flour instead of wheat fl for soft tacos. I also add some ground almonds in the mix then cook in non stick ceramic coated skillet. filling: ground sirloin, Romano shredded cheese, avocado and taco sauce. Millet flour or any flour can be used.
I like making rustic tortillas, a little thicker and fluffy,,, are way better than anything store bought, i really need to make a bigger press though, only have a smaller cast press and it sorta is way too small.
Why all of the hoopla? This is simply a result of multiculturalism being taught in the public schools. Golly gee, these women went for a cultural experience to Mexico. They became so enamored with the food that they brought the idea home to continue the experience. Then they wanted to share their multicultural experience and opened a restaurant. Then the (ahem, cough, wink ILLEGAL’s?) immigrants started raising hell because they couldn’t handle the competition. In true LIBERAL fashion they turned to the courts to get protection, and, perhaps, social media to plead their case. Now these women have been put out of business. What a load of BS. BTW, does this mean that my wife cannot make her handmade tortillas anymore? We had nachos last night should I live in fear of a “knock” on the door?
Wilson, damn good points. Those women can do whatever they want for themselves. They don’t have to bow down to anyone. No one had any damn business telling them what the f#$% to do. If any libturd had started that shit with me, I would’ve finished it, with the libturd going to the damn emergency room.
Those women did nothing illegal and should have turned it around, agreed with their detractors and advertise to the purchasing public just how authentic their Burritos are. The greater the conversation the more free advertising. Lets face it the complaint was that these Burritos were great. That is a positive. Hell make a comical TV commercial showing how a mini spy camera, mounted on a fly (common in Mexico) went into the Mexican kitchen to steal the delicious recipe.
you should live in fear of “knockers” at the door
I make tortillas by running over illegals with a steam roller
i advertise them as authentic beaner tortillae
The truth is those people are nazis.
There are all kinds of nazis, not just the white nazis of the Third Reich – there are brown nazis, black nazis, and probably a few more colors.
Just as there aren’t just black ni**ers – there are also white ni**ers.
Don’t you just love multiculturalism?
So is it cultural appropriation when other cultures use technology that was invented in the US. Maybe some of these other countries need to turn in their cell phones, computers, vehicles, and pretty much every other technology that has made our lives better because most of it has been invented by pasty white crackers.
Go Home Hombres!!! Adios’ Skidattle!!
YPDB, damn right. Illegal aliens go home to wherever you came from. Libturd snowflakes and cupcakes, go find a country that works for you.
Your government has declared war on all White people. The government legalized state sponsored discrimination against Whites through a program called “affirmative action”. The 1965 Immigration Act is designed to discriminate against White migrants and favor non-whites. Quotas? Do you get it yet? The government is against White people. The government is Marxist.
You are exactly right. Then, in the early 1970’s, the racist Government term, “African American” came into being. This gave privilege to a group of people that were going to be used as slaves to the Governments handouts, and keep them in a permanent state of welfare.
Neth, I never use any hyphenated terms and I never give anything to anyone with their hand sticking out. They’ll be lucky if I don’t cut the hand off. Nobody owes a damn thing to anyone else. There’s nothing special about any minority groups.
There is nothing wrong with the expression “African American” in my opinion.
How would you want them called ? Frizzy Americans?
OK, I’m going to sound like Eisen in this post. EVERY LIBTURD WHO COMPLAINED ABOUT THOSE TWO WHITE WOMEN CAN GO F#$% THEMSELVES. THOSE WOMEN HAVE THE RIGHT TO START ANY TYPE OF BUSINESS THEY WANT. IT’S THEIR DECISION WHAT THEY DO FOR THEMSELVES. IT’S A MATTER OF INDIVIDUAL CHOICE. THOSE WOMEN DON’T HAVE TO SHUT DOWN THEIR BUSINESS BECAUSE SOMEONE ELSE HAD AN OPPOSING VIEWPOINT ABOUT IT. THEY DON’T EVEN HAVE TO CONSIDER ANY OPPOSING VIEWPOINT. NO LIBTURD OR ANYONE ELSE HAS ANY DAMN BUSINESS TELLING OTHER PEOPLE WHAT THEY CAN OR CANNOT DO. IT’S TIME TO PLAY ‘COWBOYS AND LIBTURDS’! Rant over.
You even went ALL CAPS like Eisen to get your point across. LOL.
Thanks for the comment BH — it’s ridiculous what is now considered racism and cultural appropriation.
Mac, sorry about the ALL CAPS. I only do that on occasion and I’m not trying to take up Eisen’s habits. But this article really set me off. I’m so sick of all the PC crap I can’t see straight. I hope all those two women did were relocate to somewhere else and reopen their business. If I had been one of them there’s no way I would’ve surrendered to the PC crap. I hate libturds now more than I ever have in my whole life. A few people here have been calling libturds FASCIST. I thought about that laying in bed last night and they’re RIGHT. Those two women were literally BULLIED out of business by libturd fascists. If I had been one of those women there would’ve been some fights over the whole affair.
Oh, no need to apologize… that was funny and I am sure Eisen will appreciate seeing it! haha
Mac, thanks for understanding. But there’s nothing funny about what those two women have been going through.
Those two women were intimidated into closing shop, in pure mobster style. They must have received tons of hate mail, all coordinated, and I feel pretty sure they got death threats too.
There is no other explanation for their sudden and total renunciation, even to the point of closing their twitter accounts etc.
How is it that in a country like the US, nobody has been dragged to the courts yet?
Didn’t those mobsters do anything illegal?
White people cant make good burritos anyhow. Or salsa ??
Yeah, and the county government is really causing me problems in the name of “cultural appropriation”. I needed a building permit to construct my BOL dwelling. When I explained that it would be made from wooden garage door sections, wood pallets, and tarps they denied my request because I got (stole) the idea from what I saw when I was in Mexico. A few days later I went back with a design for an adobe house, permit denied for same reason. I dunno what I’m going to do for housing at the BOL.
White people can’t do anything any more. Next they will make it illegal for white people to eat tacos.
The (((goal))) is (((enslavement/genocide))) of Whites.
The government is (((Marxist))).
snivel…..it’s SNIVEL war…there, i fixed it for yuh.
It’s reverse racism. Dumbest thing I think I’ve ever heard of. The Hispanics must be really insecure. You don’t see people of German descent making snotty comments about the new brewhaus in town, nor the Italian guy who opened a lovely pizzeria with his mothers secret recipes. The people who complained are a bunch of addlepated sissies.
Babycatcher, whatever Hispanics complained about those women can go back south of the Rio Grande. They don’t have any business telling white people what to do.
The Portland Mercury has appropriated German culture by choosing to print its articles using moveable types. Johann Gutenberg was a German, not an American. Shame on you Portland Mercury!
They make a very good point about Cultural Appropiation, it is simply wrong for people of European decent to use this important Hispanic invention.
However, this should work both ways. They should not use: The Wheel, Electricity, Electrical Lighting, Natural Gas and Propane, Telephones/Cell Phones, Vehicles with Internal Combustion Engines, Radios, Television, Asphalt, Concrete, Firearms,Antibiotics, X-Rays, Nuclear Energy, Computers, Typewriters, Aircraft and of course, Pizza.
Yes and take their guns away beings most were invented by white Europeans and Americans.
Yep, the melting pot has melted.
Darn you Red Leader, you stole (appropriated) my comment!! 🙂
Anywhoo, don’t forget indoor plumbing, septic and sewage treatment, flushing toilets, water purification, vaccines and most modern medicine and pretty much anything with an “i” in front of the name.
The truth of the matter is that if the Europeans had not gone sailing, North America, Central America, South America and Africa would still be in the Stone Age.
That is a damn lie and the other way around. There were several civilizations more advanced than the europeans during those time. Just like in this article, they stole cultural information from them then claimed it as their own.
In fact, if the natives had not help the backwards ass europeans when they got to these shores they all would have died.
Don’t believe me? Look it up.
Great point. The stone age people knew a lot more about growing corn.
Red leader is right is the only problem. Plus if the Europeans did not steal gun powder technologies form the Chinese the Stone Age people would have stoned them.
Oh, but they got their revenge! In the sixies and seventies, many white people got stoned through other means.
The difference here is that the white inventors willingly have sold those inventions to Hispanics and profited from it. You use a poor example.
Red Leader, very good sarcasm.
They shouldn’t even be using forks! LOL….
I’m going to dress up like like a member of a mariachi band and walk around Northwestern University.
Sombrero……makeup so I have a brown face…..poncho……guitar. All just to piss off white liberal students.
I already do it to a degree in public…… I have my Trump sweater where I can see steam coming out of the ears when they see me wearing it
I have my “black guns matter T-shirt with a picture of an AR in the middle of the T-shirt. And that pisses off a LOT of people.
I get it………a lot of you just want to be left alone and do your own thing and be free and not be bothered.
Well guess what???? They are coming for us…. so you better start doing things that piss them off and then tell them to **** off when they give you any crap.
I was at a restaurant/pub in wilmette, Illinois a few weeks ago. and I was walking to the bathroom wearing my Trump sweater…….
And a group of 4 or 5 was just getting up and one guy says as he is walking by me… as I’m walking into the bathroom, “Make America white again.”
I stopped and said and making sure the other few he was with could hear and in sort of in his face said…… “Yeah, we gotta kick these rat filthy muslim inbreds out of this country.” As soon as I said that in a very firm voice he turned away and kind of cowered, and clearly not wanting further confrontation.
THESE PEOPLE ARE PUSSIES. They THINK they have the upper hand because they think we are soft because we never go on the offensive, but as soon as you do they cower.
Another instance at this same restaurant a few months back, it was after one of the terrorit attacks in Europe…maybe Nice, France I think it was.
The idiots there are all consumeed by sports and i was like turn on the news there was just a terrorist attack, they turn it on and we start talking. One guy is a regular late 40’s who is an A-hole and there was an older guy next to him and we start discussing and I’m like yeah these muslims are all inbreds and don’t belong in this country, and the older guy was arguing with me that I’m crazy….and this guy was an older tough irish looking dude too. And I’m thinking to myself this old irish guy who 40 years ago wouldn’t have put up with all this diversity crap is arguing with me that they are good people and what not. So I kept telling him “Why do you want these animals here so badly”? “They don’t accept our way of life.” “They marry their first cousins, have so many recessive genetic disorders, etc” And he was all upset I was saying this. then he left and the other guy who’s always there who’s kind of an A-hole is like, “You shouldn’t use that kind of toxic language.”
And I said “WTF are you talking about toxic language???” “I can say whatever the F I want.” And this A-hole is a seemingly tough guy too, very non-approachable, and just a jerk, but then he has a problem with my “laaaaanguage” And I basically told him to go F himself, and he didn’t say a word after that.
Constitutionalists and conservatives need to start stepping up and confronting this BS, because I’ll tell you I don’t see it at all. I just see people cowering to this BS all the time.
AZ cats, I already piss off some people with my GADSDEN t-shirt and cap.
It’s because the Human Resources departments at their workplaces constantly threaten and imply bad things happen to people who speak out against forced DIEversity.
Plus, they probably ingest a steady stream of DIEversity propaganda from the media, including sitcoms, commercials, etc. that constantly pushing cultural Marxism on the masses.
Where is the outrage for Apple and how they got their start?
Or Microsoft and how they got their start?
Or Facebook and how they got their start?
There is nothing new under the sun.
So let me go get my hoop earrings and – oh wait, hoops are for black beauties only – that’s their culture being usurped. But wait a minute – weren’t they wearing hoops in Babylon and Sumer and Egypt?
NEWSFLASH: Kim K. took down her Tweet.
Can Americans get any more stoopid?
I want an AmerAsian child, an EthiopIcan, and a RusoAmerican as well. Three pure bred women from these Nationalities want me bad but I need to know if these, my children will be hated because I, a White man appropriated their Mother’s race to get them.
Cultural Appropriation–here ya go:
Best Ever Homemade Flour Tortillas
3 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking powder
⅓ cup vegetable oil
1 cup warm water
1. Combine flour, salt and baking powder in the bowl of a stand mixer. Using the dough hook, mix dry ingredients until well combined.
2. Add oil and water with mixer running at a medium speed. Mix for 1 minute, stopping several times to scrape the sides of the bowl. After about 1 minute, or when mixture comes together and begins to form a ball, decrease mixing speed to low. Continue to mix for 1 minute or until dough is smooth.
3. Transfer from mixing bowl to a well-floured work surface. Divide into 16 fairly equal portions. Turn each piece to coat with flour. Form each piece into a ball and flatten with the palm of your hand. Cover flattened balls of dough with a clean kitchen towel and allow to rest for 15 minutes before proceeding.
4. After rest period, heat a large pan over medium-high heat. Roll each dough piece into a rough circle, about 6-7 inches in diameter, keep work surface and rolling pin lightly floured. Don’t stack uncooked tortillas on top of each other or they will get soggy.
5. When pan is very hot, place one dough circle into pan and allow to cook about 1 minute or until bottom surface has a few pale brown spots. The uncooked surface will begin to show a few little bubbles. If tortilla is browning too fast, reduced heat a bit. If it’s taking longer than a minute to see a few pale golden brown spots on underside of tortillas, increase heat a bit. Flip to other side and cook for about 30 seconds. You want the tortilla to be soft but have a few small pale golden brown spots on surface. Remove from pan with tongs and stack in a covered container or zippered bag till all tortillas are cooked. This will keep them soft and pliable.
6. Wipe out the pan in between tortillas if flour is started to accumulate.
7. Serve warm or allow to cool for later use. When ready to use, place a slightly damp paper towel in the bottom of a microwave-safe container (with a cover) that will hold the stacked tortillas. Microwave, uncovered for 15-25 seconds (start with 15) or until warm, then cover to hold heat while serving.
8. Store in an airtight container or plastic zippered bag at at room temperature for 24 hours. Or freeze indefinitely. To freeze, separate tortillas with parchment paper or waxed paper and place in a zippered bag before placing in freezer.
Just go to Taco Bell, it’s the real deal!
Taco Bell??? Dog Food.
Shame on you grandee, shame on you!!!!! Now Mac will have to ban you from this site for submitting the recipe, AND making disparaging remarks about Taco Bell!!! He may even lose some advertisers. SARCASM!!!
Thanks for the recipe.
BTW, if I eat in a Mexican restaurant does that make me guilty of “cultural appropriation”?
Come on really. I wouldn’t feed that to my dog. She probably wouldnt eat it.
Taco HELL? Anything in my preps beats that crap.
Taco Bell??? Dog Food.
You must mean Taco Hell!
Taco Bell was created in Callifornia, in 1946, by a guy named Glenn Bell. It is an “acquired taste”…
As a man married to an actual Mexican, I can tell you that your recipe is white people tortillas. Yes, that’s a term they use.
Mexicans use real lard for tortillas, not oil.
Damn straight lard is the only way to go.
Which begs the question, are Mexicans guilty of cultural appropriation for using lard? My momma, her momma, her momma, etc. used lard for making pie crust. SARCASM
Bear fat makes the best pie crust.
Apparently “cultural appropriation” is just dandy if you are an approved victim as certified by the cultural Marxists, like faux black woman Rachel Dolzeal (google her name, or see http://www.dailywire.com/news/15673/heres-what-happened-when-rachel-dolezal-told-black-james-barrett )
““Liberating tolerance would mean intolerance against movements from the right and toleration of movements from the left. Certain things cannot be said, certain ideas cannot be expressed, certain policies cannot be proposed.”
– From famed leftist fascist Herbert Marcuse—who popularized the “repressive tolerance” theory of modern progressives
I don’t think people are saying they should not cook because they are white, its rather because they are boasting of stealing something, in this case a ‘recipe’.
These women have some nerve. You know coke still won’t share their secret recipe. Did those women in Mexico get some fair compensation. Fair is fair. It irks me when some company has a bake contest. We know the real purpose of these contests is to steal people’s family’s favorite recipe; or worse yet, their trick for overcoming some problem in the kitchen. There are a lot of low life’s, and most are rich from stealing.
What pisses me off most is when I hear somebody call spaghetti an Italian dish; when it is Chinese and the Italians stole it. I get really perturbed when there is a Mexican dish washer in a Sushi Bar; Spying on those Koreans pretending to be Japanese. They think they can fool us Americans because we have round eyes and extra cellulite where they wish they had some (tits and ass).
But for real, the only thing that t’s me off, is that those women folded under the pressure.
Next time ladies, stand up for your race. Everybody else stands up for themselves. If you don’t want to be treated like a door mat, get up off the floor, American white European stock.
“(tits and ass)” ROFLMAO
So you think it’s OK to steal because they are white? They admitted they stole the reipies and even stated the women did not want to tell them everything so they looked through windows to ge what they wanted.
None of you seem to get it. They admitted they stole intellectual property. They had to shut down or they would have been sued.
Oh, they get it.
No, its not ok to steal because you’re white (or black or red or yellow or green).
The only thing they did wrong was to word their research the wrong way.
Had they said they just took a trip to the library, it may have turned out differently – maybe.
Before these accusations, companies did the same thing. They would “research” all the necessary information by doing it basically the same way. They would “peek”, refine, and then sell.
Is what these ladies did no different than what other and our own government does?
Will it come to the point where anyone who even remotely looks at another culture will get slammed for something like this?
Is it harmful to a culture? Or is it beneficial to the person (ideology) who started this and thought they could get notice from this?
If we continue this way, we will truly be acting as sheep, instead of thinking independently.
I read a similar story about hoop earrings. I wear a pair of gold earrings all the time. It would not be a good day for some twit to comment about my jewelry or fashion insensitivity.
Stuff like this is pushing me to do something like dress up as a Mexican mariachi band member……. Sombrero, brown face paint, poncho, and guitar and walk along northwestern university and piss off these snowflakes.
I already have a trunk shirt I wear and I can tell it pissed people off and I also have a “black guns matter” t-shirt with an AR pictured in the middle of it, which I can tell also pisses people off
I was at this pub/restaurant in wilmette Illinois wearing my trunk shirt and jumped up to go to the bathroom and this guy who was leaving the restaurant with a few of his friends goes…….”make America white again.”
I stopped and turned toward him and said “yeah, we need to kick out these rat filthy inbred Muslims out of our civilized society.” I said this firmly and more or less in his face. Letting him no that he better not **** with me. And he turned cowered and walked away without any rebuttal.
Another time I was at the same restaurant at the bar and it was after the Nice or Paris attacks, literally right when it happened so I said turn on the news there was a terrorist attack. And there were two guys next to me, one guy who’s always there and you can tell he is a jerk and and A-hole and this other older Irish dude sitting next to him. God forbid they can’t watch their stupid hockey for 15 mins.
So I start saying how it’s just a disaster that the west is letting all these Muslims in. And the Irish guy, who 50 years ago wouldn’t have stood for these animals coming in here starts arguing with me blah blah blah they are good people. I’m like no, half of them are inbred. They’ve cornered the market on marrying their first cousins, they treat their women like livestock. They have so many recessive genetic disorders from all the incest. And I was openly saying all this to them and he basically had no response and had that look like omg you are such a racist on his face. So he leaves and the guy who’s always there who’s a jerk and kind of a tough guy type or at least that’s how he acts…. Says…..
You really shouldn’t be using that “toxic” language.
I told him I’ll say whatever the fuck I want, and you come off as such a tough guy and you are taken aback by a little harsh language. Wtf is that? And he didn’t say anything either.
The problem is so many conservatives and constitutionalists lay down and try and stay unnoticed and keep to themselves.
Well guess what people? They are coming for us and it’s time to start at LEAST talking back and not give into any of their ****.
I see so many conservatives say crap like “I’m not racist…. But…..” Always having to give a disclaimer that they aren’t racist before saying something they know the person or people they are talking to will be offended by.
**** all that. Start speaking up and make no apologies. These mother ****ers are p*ssies. And they know you are weak which is why so many people were closet trump supporters.
Oh My Heck,
What do I do with my serape and sombrero? And my longhorn steer horns I bought in Juarez?
AZCats, don’t forget to wear your sandals that have soles made from tire tread. Carry a jug of water too.
Well I just appropriated a little American exceptualism and repaired MY brakes on MY hybrid car. Finished the job tonight. The wife loves break jobs, because she gets to help. I need a helper to pump the brakes while I bleed them. Then she gets to have her way with the mechanic…. But I digress.
The car the dealer thought no one could service, but themselves. Hah! Yeah, I just read the freaking manual. KMAT.
Instead of a $600.00 bill from the dealer I did it for $130! KIss My Ass Toyota! And yeah I scheduled myself to RE-DO the rip off brake job the Toyota dealer did on my Neice’s car and they totally phucked up! Really in twenty years I’ve never done a break job that squeaked like Toyota’s professional Phucking jerk mechanics. No I’m not bitter, just a realist.
Go ahead preppers, you can beat the system too. Isn’t that what prepping is all about, being two steps ahead of the failing system?
It’s good when you can do it yourself.
Couple of years ago I did a $950 circuit board fix on the furnace for $183. A lot of things are entirely modular, remove and replace.
Get some tools like a circuit and voltage reader, you’ll be money ahead.
I discovered PEX plumbing recently, a total tool-up costs about $80. My only issue with plumbing is the soldering joints and risk of fire.
I changed a main board in a furnace as well, not so tough if you can read a wiring diagram.
My furnace has some kind of artificial Inteligence built in. It always knows to break an hour after the parts store closes for a three day weekend!
The HVAC parts dealer gets nervous selling complicated parts to homeowners, and required heavy coaxing. After that I bought a repairman’s shirt with my first name embroidered on it. I walk in now wearing my shirt, and they sell me anything without question. ?
Most every kind of auto repair job and instructions is shown on YTube. You can go to an auto parts store, they will hook up the diagnostics computer for free anf tell you and sell you the part you need. Buy it for pennies and fix it yourself. Granted you have all the tools to do the job. Many of these engine check light warnings are simple plug and play sensors replacents with the twist of a few screws or bolts. Typical sensors like wheel sensors are $18. If you go to an auto repair shop and have them fix it, Plan on $125 to $150 they will charge. Just saying. Learn how to fix your vehicle yourself. Even changing your own oil. Simple stuff. Ive seen idiots at oil change shops fail to put the oil cap back on and slam the hood down and people drive off and wonder why the oil light keeps coming on. I always say I do it myself and then I know its done right.
you know its fu8nny how the left ( dems ) are now the worlds cops or body guards for every low dirty group of people Asians blacks Muslims etc etc and yet just a short 100years ago they were the ones walking down Pennsylvania ave to the white house all dressed up in their finest KKK robes
in the 20 and 30s over half of the senate were KKK members
and word had it that the president was too
you could not swing a dead cat with out hitting a grand wizard from the deep south and more then 60% of northern state’s had at least 2 KKK lodges.
think i shit ya folks well i am not.
woodrow wilson was a known KKK member and did not give up his post while president.
and while we are at it last year Hillary Clinton received the Margaret sanger award given out by planned parenthood.
the SAME Margaret sanger that was backed by the KKK and the NAACP and who started the eugenics movement to sterilize the Black race out of existence.
[We should] apply a stern and rigid policy of sterilization and segregation to that grade of population whose progeny is tainted, or whose inheritance is such that objectionable traits may be transmitted to offspring.The Wickedness of Creating Large Families.
or how about this ??
We should hire three or four colored ministers, preferably with social-service backgrounds, and with engaging personalities. The most successful educational approach to the Negro is through a religious appeal. We don’t want the word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population, and the minister is the man who can straighten out that idea if it ever occurs to any of their more rebellious members.
Such parents swell the pathetic ranks of the unemployed. Feeble-mindedness perpetuates itself from the ranks of those who are blandly indifferent to their racial responsibilities. And it is largely this type of humanity we are now drawing upon to populate our world for the generations to come. In this orgy of multiplying and replenishing the earth, this type is pari passu multiplying and perpetuating those direst evils in which we must, if civilization is to survive, extirpate by the very roots.
her whole job was to bring about the end of first the blacks and then the Irish Mexican and catholic religion.
In 1926, Sanger spoke at a Ku Klux Klan rally in 1926 in Silver Lake, New Jersey. Following the invitation, Sanger describes her elation after receiving multiple speaking requests from white supremacy groups. She writes of the experience on page 366 of her book, An Autobiography:
I accepted an invitation to talk to the women’s branch of the Ku Klux Klan … I saw through the door dim figures parading with banners and illuminated crosses … I was escorted to the platform, was introduced, and began to speak … In the end, through simple illustrations I believed I had accomplished my purpose. A dozen invitations to speak to similar groups were proffered.
the very same KKK that started the RED SCARE and the Race riots of the 30s and 40s and the same dem leaders of the KKK that started the idea of commies being bad and Kill a commie for mommy
Most Klansmen were white middle-class Protestants whose beliefs in white supremacy motivated their support for the social control of African Americans, immigrants, labor unions, and other groups who threatened their position in American society
It is estimated that between 1915 and 1944, Klan membership in the Plains states made up 20 percent of the Klan’s total membership. During this period, Klan membership was strongest in Texas (190,000) and Oklahoma (95,000), and declined northward through Colorado (45,000), Kansas (40,000), Nebraska (25,000), South Dakota (5,000), and North Dakota (3,000).
and if you search deeper the same states most likely were run by the Dems
the same dems were responsible for jim crow laws
the same dems that started segregation in schools and restaurants and lunch counters.
and also FDR the greatest DEM p.o.s that started the welfare program that has caused soo many unwanted fatherless children for close to 100 years now and the over bloated cities of filth and homeless children.
prior to FDR most families stuck together and made things work but now why bother just go on welfare and have 6 or 9 children and get enough food to feed the whole neighborhood.
these same welfare mommy’s dont care how much food they waste after all its free right ??.
but these same trick turners will spend $$$ straightening out there wool to look more white and then bleach it white or blonde.
talk about cultural appropriation
damn straight about stand up for your rights
and if need be shout them from the roof tops but make damn sure you don’t stop.
and next time you have 20 mins write a DEM and remind them of their wonderful past
remind them that at one time THEY were the ones that hung blacks by lamp posts and tied gin mill fans to small black boys and threw them in rivers. and also remind them that support of Planned parent hood is murder just the same as if THEY took out a knife and killed those children.
remember a few years ago the black asshole doc that clamped the spines of babies born alive during late term abortions and left them to die on a counter top all the while crying out in pain.
gee Hillary how wonderful does it feel to accept that award now ??? make you feel any better knowing what monsters work for PPH ?? or the women caught on camera tell two folks that she needed a new car and would get one for the sales of Baby parts.
it does no good to plan for the end or when the shtf if we will be helping animals live too like the folks
because when the ” re set starts ” we will be right back to what we left.
crooked Dems and their hidden little secrets.
it used to be the republicans were caught in corrupt money games and the dems were just stupid and got caught in sex issues
and now its all reversed.
its the repubs that get caught with their pants down and the dems get caught in money scandals
charlie rangel and his subsidized appt that he was paying next to zero to rent but not to live in so he could lease it out for 3 times the rent.
john Kerry and his 4.5 million dollar yacht in Delaware and not mass or what state he lived in at the time. all to avoid a few hundred thousand in taxes.
funny how they want us to pay and pay and pay but they want it all for nothing.
and before you all jump on me I AM NOT against the KKK in fact i was Aryan nation out of Idaho.
but i saw how even they were corrupt in so many ways
if you want to wipe out an entire race then do so but dont do the job half ass. and the fact that they stole from people and did so much illegal and corrupt shit and Jail was the last place that i wanted to spend most of my life
and most important finish what you start
skittle shittin unicorn
Could you repeat that skittle? I forgot to read it the first time.
I would have expanded my menue to include dishes from all other cultures
That is why we are the ‘mixing or salad bowl’. Apparently Europe does not do a good job st integrating their immigrants and so the races have been living segregated and in ghettos.
looks like Pita bread to me, this recipe pops all over the world where bread is baked, It’s not new.
The left never talks about the origins of May Day, beginning of the planting season. That was stolen by the International loafers party/Marxist/Communist.
In the words of Jackson Taylor and the Sinners, “Let the bad times roll!”
OMG! It’s the cuisine crusades!
Do yourself a favor, read the above article and replace the word white with black and see if you cringe and feel dirty every time you say the word black. If so they have been successful in implanting white guilt upon you….imagine how this article is fine but if the word black was used all hell would break loose…so sick of racism against whites being accepted….
Well,tis clear that local authorities need to deal with Grandee’s “cultural appropriation “theft”,hope that justice is done in this egregious theft!.
I do agree though,they folded like a wet blanket,they stuck up for themselves my guess is they would have more business then ever,folks,long overdue time to fight.
Small point, but…it’s “cognitive dissonance,” not “cognitive dissidence.” Anyhow, if “cultural appropriation” is so bad then it must really be hard for Portlanders to come to terms with being Americans. We are a land of immigrants (as they incessantly remind us) and those immigrants brought their original cultures with them when they immigrated. Parts of those cultures merged with and became components of our culture here in the United States. Arguably the entire culture of the United States is foundationally made up of things “appropriated” from other cultures. So I have a suggestion for all these angry SJWs, which is, leave the United States and go somewhere there hasn’t been any cultural appropriation. A deserted island in the South Pacific would work nicely. And don’t come back. Ever.
What happened to open borders. Idiots. So millions of Mexicans can sneak over the border, and we have to take it, but we steal one burrito recipe from them and it’s a snowflake meltdown. I wish all these idiots get what they want, a socialist paradise and hopefully it will play on TV how the government finally came to their house and took their stuff for the common good. I can’t anymore.
Crazy is as crazy does. Every time I read those two words “cultural appropriation” I go loco.
It really doesn’t matter what these women did. What matters is that the children of Portland had a reason to bitch, whine, cry, complain and moan and they could blame on someone white. Next week they’ll all be self righteously raging because some white Christian baker refused to bake a cake for a couple of feces eating faggots celebrating their filthy perversion. Oh, wait….
But , but, liberals and progressives and neocons wish to culturally appropriate your LABOR (money/currency) at ever quicker pace. Who listens to your outrage?
What everybody is missing in this story is the “white womens” rolling over and surrender to the fringe….Keep it up America, you prove my point daily that there are no heroes in the USA only cowards and traitors waiting to be exposed. The Founding Fathers should be glad they are not alive to witness their sacrifices that they made be NOT even a passing thought.
America doesn’t deserve its sovereignty nor “freedom” if it will do NOTHING to defend itself against its domestic terrorists and traitors. If you will not defend it TO KEEP IT, you don’t deserve it to begin with. FREEDOM IS NOT FREE, and cognitive dissonance is no EXCUSE for missing the obvious destruction and doing nothing to stop it. Its your birdth right ONLY if you maintain it.
Its your birth right ONLY if you maintain it. But there has never been a gift from one generation to the next that has been disrespected and taken for granted because the gift was NEVER EARNED, so its true value was never understood until you have to risk your own life and limb to KEEP it.
That time may come sooner than most realize
I’m just waiting for black people to demand their own drinking fountains and rest rooms (with the support of white liberals). Oh, the irony of coming full circle.
“It used to be that liberals fought ideologies that segregated races and cultures.”
Bullshit. Not ever.
Exactly, NB. The Democrat party is the founder and home of the KKK, as just one example. Google “Woodrow Wilson and racism.” Heck, even LBJ’s work getting black votes was his way of putting them back on the gov’t plantation and destroying the black family.
Thankfully, the smartest blacks are dumping the fascist left in droves. Thomas Sowell, Clarence Thomas, Walter Williams, Col West, Sen. Tim Scott etc etc.
Upon signing the Civil Rights Bill in 1964, LBJ remarked to friends, “I’ll have niggers votin’ Democrat for the next 200 years!” Great Society, right. Sure. Any day now.
Our nation doesn’t have long left as an independent and sovereign nation.
But what will rise in its place?
An independent and sovereign nation with a much smaller population.
Ghee why aren’t the flipping their lids at 75% of the businesses in NYC?? The Pizza joint owned by Koreans or Indians, Muslim Cabbies and any host of a thousand other ethnic type businesses owned by someone that’s not say; Italian or Chinese?
No this is racism against Christians, Conservatives and Jews because they are WHITE pure and simple!!
Have you ever met a person who basically knows nothing on any given subject, but will argue or go against an expert on a subject they know nothing about?? Those are the idiot academics and liberals who claim to be so smart. I had a global warming “true believer” in my office yesterday who was adamant about GW but couldn’t answer the most basic questions. They only know the talking points and propaganda. Once you question them on facts they launch into personal attacks.
Please- Jews are not White- they hate Whites.
………..Every gas station not owned by Arabs….
I find if very interesting how women – who started this whole progression downwards with their evil feminism in the 1960s – are now becoming victims of their own political correctness movement.
But this has always been the case. Robespierre got his own guillotine. Ernst Rohm (sp?) got bumped off by Hitler. Trotsky, Lavrentiy Beria got murdered by Stalin/Lenin. Gen. Arnaldo Ochoa got offed by Castro. Truth is, there are NO ethics in leftism, only power. Which is why the vile Alinsky dedicated his book to Lucifer.
As Jacques Mallet du Pan (1749—10 May 1800), wrote about the first leftist reign of terror, in his 1793 essay that ”…the Revolution always eats its own children” (“A l’exemple de Saturne, la révolution dévore ses enfants”)
I got my genes from my ancestors. They lived in France, Germany, Ireland, and Scotland. Does that make me a thief?
And they got their protein from animals and plants. AHHHHH! omg. That makes me a chicken or a petunia.
AKA White Bart.
Same here, we fled Hamburg in 1685 to avoid being hanged by the local baron for killing a deer in ‘his’ forest. The whole family packed up and left overnight.
Picked up a little Irish and English along the way, but arrived in the New World not long after.
Here’s what I would have done. Changed the name to “White Womans Burritos”…put up a sign that all minorities will get a 20% discount. (i.e whites pay 20% more.). Then if a liberal complains, you can call them a racist because they want minorities to pay the same as whites. You see the only ones then that would complain would be the white liberals, who then would be attacked by the minority liberals. Since the white liberals would be outnumbered, and the attacks more viscous by the minority liberals, the white liberals would simply go away…or never heard from in the first place; knowing what would happen to them.
This is called hanging them by their own petard, or beating them at their own game. GET IT. !!!
Whites would pay 25% more.
This is crazy. Why does it matter? Whenever someone starts up a new business I’m sure they do plenty of research, shadowing, experimenting, etc… When a new wine is created do you think they don’t visit wine countries. These 2 girls liked what they saw and it’s not like they set up shop across the street, they were setting up in a different country. I just don’t get it!
GOOD, it was a CRIME SCENE anyway, serving poisonous toxic glyphosate and EDC filled GMO fake food horror, so the criminal owners carrying out the American Holocaust and Chemical CULLING got exactly what the purveyors of disgusting toxic poison deserved.
A RELATED SIDE NOTE: The criminal treasonous psychopath controlled US Government from the inner bowels of the pits of hell in Washington DC SUSPENDED the testing of our food supply for the Monsanto glyphosate toxic deadly poison, testing they were suppose to begin in April 2017. Of course the treasonous murderous criminal CIA Mike Monsanto Pompeo was involved in this decision. Only problem for Monsanto Mike and the treasonous criminal US Government psychopaths is massive independent testing has already been done here and in Europe, and we now have more than enough evidence and proof and know exactly how the US Government treasonous psychopaths are murdering the dumbed down, disease ridden, obese, depressed, addicted to everything New Babylonian American toxic dump COWARDS, and we definitely know what the psychopaths have done to the health, freedom and future of the children the disgusting child abusing New Babylonian coward parents whored out for booze, porn, Big Pharma, and entertainment.
Did all the SJWs who complained about “cultural appropriation” think that the old women in Mexico were losing sales in Portland due to these two ladies? If they old women in Mexico didn’t share their recipes, then how can it be theft? The best it could be was a close approximation, and that’s not illegal. Any anyone who went to the Latin-owned alternatives suggested by the SJWs is an idiot; this war isn’t on cultural appropriation but on whites. The owners of those businesses would NEVER refer people to a white-owned business, for any reason.
Mom and the kids, including me, all learned how to make tortillas from watching the mamacita teaching the young girls of the village how to make them.
Roll some lard and flour into the size the shape of a golf ball. Should be about 1/3 lard, it’s not crucial.
Roll the ball into the palm of your hand and pat it out on the edges, fold over and start over. Your ‘tortilla’ will get larger with each fold. The women make the large tortillas, which are not commonly eaten, and the girls make the smaller, which are used for lunches.
So did you open a business selling said tortillas making a profit based on someone else’s intellectual property that they clearly did not want to give to you?
If Mamasita did not object, is it actually stealing? Or is that just how you believe it should be?
I heard about this the other day.
It sounds like our girls weren’t ‘forced’ to do anything.
They merely bowed to the invisible, ‘social justice’ bullcrap that sweeps the web.
Had they just stood their ground for a few weeks/months, some other shiny object would’ve caught their eye and the story would’ve vanished.
It’s hard to generate any real feelings here. The two girls probably agreed with the SJW crowd and decided to fall on their sword in penance.
Personally, I would have used every little bit of publicity handed to me by those brainless quacks and made a fortune!
“Abuela’s Secret Recipe”, “Painstakingly researched” “The best of the best when it comes to handmade tortillas”
Really? Tortillas? That’s their huge accomplishment? Tortillas?
I could ‘master’ tortillas in an afternoon if I put my mind to it. Without the dangerous trip to Mexico.
The heading and article is a bunch of BS. They closed becase they admitted in an interview that they had stolen someone else’s intellectual property. They could have been taken to court and lost more than just their burrito truck.
That’s more nonsense.
They interacted with the locals who shared recipes and secrets with them. It’s not like they broke into Colonel Sanders’ safe and lifted the recipe for their deeelicious batter dipped chicken.
It’s a f***ing tortilla. It isn’t one person’s recipe. It’s their version of all the recipes they assembled. If what you allege were true, anyone currently running a tortilla/taco/burrito stand would have to close down because the tortilla is someone else’s recipe.
For a burrito recipe that they modified? Give me a break snowflake. Grow up.
A composite recipe created by observing multiple cooks is not really theft. Anyway, who was going to sue them?
Me thinks NightlyJazz would have.
I read the first three comments all negative. I thought the ladies were creative, turned something from nothing into something, kudos to them. Back to the first three commentators mind numbing idiots!!!!!!
Well there ya go. I grew up eating tacos, spaghetti, pizza, and goulash. This PC nonsense has to end.
I am guessing these two young entrepreneurs are going to hightail it out of town to the nearest red state / city / county. Tough way to learn.
Sigh, I was walking past a restaurant with a Central American theme, maybe Guatemalan food, and they had a rack of free newspapers outside called “La Subasta,” (The Auction) and I took a copy, the woman por dentro (inside) looked at me like I just slit 5,000 throats because since I’m Anglo I’m not supposed to be able to understand Spanish, but if I do understand it, I have intruded into someone’s “code language” they like to speak in public in front of Anglos who do NOT understand much of what is being said. So I speak and understand Spanish well, GD, I do not accept that as any type of trespass. Anyone can learn any language they want if they care to work at it. Cardinal Mezofanti spoke 38 languages with fluency.
Que triste que algunas cabezas de mierda tienen que ser malhechores tocante la vida do otras personas. El mundo y sus lenguas pertenece a todos.
Tal es la naturaleza de la mayoría de la gente.
Yet a certain segment of our population still wears clothes and eats fried chicken.
Cultural Appropriation?!? They just make this **** up as they go along. From cultural appropriation to cultural apocalypse the fun just never ends.
The girls need to get back in their burrito shop and tell the libs to FO.
They take all our technology. And we don’t even get a tortilla?
The SJWs picked easy targets. They always try to do this so they can have quick, decisive victories. Which is why every target of an SJW attack needs to stand up and tell them to f* off.
Craziest BS article I’ve ever read. White women cant make burritos??? Portland has lost its collective mind. This is a case of liberal ideology gone completely off the rails. Just about everything we eat in the U.S. came from another culture. White women can make anything they want to and sell it to anyone who wants to buy it. They obviously were very good at what they were making.
Check out Wikipedia and find this quote, “Before the development of the modern burrito, the Mesoamerican peoples of Mexico used corn tortillas to wrap foods, with fillings of chili peppers, tomatoes, mushrooms, squash, and avocados. The Pueblo people of the Southwestern United States also made tortillas with beans and meat sauce fillings prepared much like the modern burrito.”
So, all of those people who speak Spanish and make burritos are just as guilty as the women in this article. They just stole the recipe first.
The outrageously pharisaic reasoning is they are less or not guilty, because they are not white.
After dealing with people from oregon, and people from california, oregon people are the hippie rejects from california, and since I dont like the california govt, I have sinced moved to TEXAS! I am so damn happy I did too!
Both those states are running amuck!
Ironically, the complaints are being made in a WASP country, also while speaking English.
Mexican culture, including their Spanish language, was appropriated from Europeans. But, foodies are re-discovering pre-Columbian ‘delicacies’ —
water fly larvae
black and runny corn smut (said to occur where they have defecated in the field.)
Paulie Walnuts of the Soprano’s was angry that a upscale Expresso franchise “stole” their (like he owned it) Italian coffee so he shoplifted an item.
Um, share? They admit to stealing the recipe of mexicans. Whites can make all the burritos they want, its called taco bell?
There is a MUCH larger issue at play here below the surface of “cultural appropriation.” It is the goal of an internationally coherent global business/ownership structure—designed, of course, to make the world “safer” for productive, profitable markets. A.K.A. Globalism. There are, however, certain things standing in the way of this objective, which obstructions need to be REMOVED. The now-late Dr. Zbigniew Brzezinski, a brilliant, intellectual architect of this order is full of quotes explaining the mission—look them up.
But our point here is to focus on the method by which the “elite” intend to overcome their obstacles. A main strategy thereof is the ancient and highly successful technique: Divide and conquer. This was, for example, the core strategy used against the Soviet Union. To break it up into pieces, then deal with the pile of little pieces by integrating them into a new order of relationships. In the 20th century the term, Balkanization, was coined to express the nature of this process.
Today, in preparation for the dissolution of the modern nation-state and its blending into a new global order, the intenders employ “identity politics” to separate the human family into smaller, separate pieces, which can be manipulated more easily into a new sociopolitical infrastructure. Currently referred to as Globalism. The cultural-anthropological term for this consciousness altering framework is called Multiculturalism.
So, Divide and Conquer = Balkaniaztion = Multiculturalism.
Can anyone deny that we see this process running rampant today across the globe? In nearly every category we are being split against ourselves into an increasing jumble of otherness. So, are we going to take the red pill and wake up before it is too late, or stay on our steady diet of blue pills continuing to pretend that the other guy who eats other food is somehow qualitatively different from us?
Looks like the conservative side just gained two new members. Liberalism is a mental disorder.
