Nutty Liberals Claim Food Is RACIST – What They Do Next Is OUTRAGEOUS

17841440_sThe food, yes the freaking food is racist at a Portland restaurant according to crazed progressive activists.  The problem with the food is that it’s served at a British empire themed restaurant and that makes the food RACIST.  But wait there’s more!  Simply screaming racism wasn’t enough for these nutcases, they had to fight “intolerance” with a little intolerance of their own.

From the Daily Caller:

A restaurant in Portland, Oregon is being targeted by protesters who say its British Empire theme is offensive to minorities.

Saffron Colonial focuses on English cuisine, but in addition to afternoon teas and English breakfasts the restaurant also incorporates “globally inspired dishes from the height of the British Empire,” such as a Burmese curry dish. Owner Sally Krantz says she’s interested in historical dishes and wants her restaurant to reflect the unique dishes and meal combinations created through the existence of the British Empire.

And that has some Portland residents outraged.
A March 19 open letter by Stephanie Dünx lays out the core criticisms of Saffron’s theme.  “While molasses cookies and sausage rolls may come to mind for you when you think of British colonialism, many of us associate it with forced religious conversion/cultural erasure, famine, and slavery,” the letter says.

Just freaking out and writing a letter didn’t satisfy their quest for social justice, this is how they tried to sabotage the business:

In addition to her letter, Dünx also organized a protest march to Saffron Colonial. During the protest, demonstrators plastered Saffron Colonial’s windows with homemade signs declaring “Closed due to glorifying colonialism” and similar phrases.

Besides marching to the restaurant, critics have also started to sabotage its Yelp page with negative reviews.

“If you would like your eggs served with a side of bigotry and complete ignorance, this is the place to go,” one review says. “This food is racism, British Colonial, WINSTON CHURCHILL inspired food. You mean the same Winston Churchill that caused the Indian famine under his rule? … Somehow, in some way, that history makes me hunger for eggs and brunch. Have some taste people. Boycott this place until it dies.”

Thus far, Krantz says she won’t give in to the complaints.

“Nobody is protesting Southern cuisine,” she told The Daily Beast. “Nobody is protesting Arab cuisine. I’m not sure where that stops.”

Yes, the literally started protesting the restaurant and tried to shut it down. UNREAL.  This isn’t even the first time progressives in Portland have cried racism over food.  A Portland public school official once claimed that peanut butter and jelly sandwiches carry racist connotations.  Basically all food dishes are “racist” according to their failed logic.

Wow, these people must not have anything else to do with their time.  Idle hands are the devil’s playthings.  It’s too bad these folks can’t try to build something instead of tearing down everything they see.

Would these progressives be angry over a Fidel Castro themed Cuban restaurant?  The commies never killed anyone right?
