Maybe They Should Bring Jared Back?

Hey, remember Megan Rapinoe? You know, the emaciated guy from the U.S. women’s – wait, that’s a woman? – soccer team who always colored his, er, “her” hair purple or pink? Apparently, a large amount of people despise this horrible, anti-American twat, which is why Subway is hemorrhaging customers.

The Subway fast-food chain has been struggling — even before the coronavirus — but many franchise owners also felt that hiring U.S. soccer star and national anthem protester Megan Rapinoe as a national spokesperson was no help at all.

According to a report in the New York Post, Subway lost 1,043 outlets in 2021, which was more than the new outlets they opened. So, what is going wrong? Well, some franchise owners feel that hiring Megan Rapinoe was just one of the contributing factors to Subway’s mounting woes.

Gee, you think? He’s a foul-mouthed piece of detritus who danced on the American flag when he won games. Oh sorry, “she.” Yeah, that’s the ticket.

Indeed, the struggling fast-food company was met with an organized boycott by customers who were upset that Subway would choose to laud a woman who attended an Olympics on foreign soil only to protest against the country that made her rich.

Some franchise owners were furious that Subway chose such a radical and controversial political figure to push their product.

This may be the perfect example of the “Get Woke, Go Broke” truism. Subway hitched their wagon to this dude after the U.S. Women’s soccer team started winning games, despite the fact there were a few normal, popular players they could have chosen. But no, Subway wanted a leftist, and that leftist had to be obnoxiously radical.

So, after seeing Rapinoe’s anti-American actions on and off the field, Americans decided they didn’t want to embrace this dude’s f**k America platform. They stopped watching this dude’s soccer games, and stopped patronizing her sponsors. Hence, the collapse of Subway.

Look, I get why advertisers place sports stars on commercials, but none of these people realize said sports star has to be above reproach. No one wants to watch commercials featuring Megan Rapinoe, LeBron James, or Ray Rice.

If you want someone to really carry your brand on their shoulders, stop looking at LeBron James, and start looking at Tim Tebow, Wayne Gretzky or almost any race car driver.

The Salvation Army Goes Woke

The Salvation Army is struggling for donations this year after they decided to question white donators about their “white racism.” I mean, I know when I make a contribution to a charity, the first thing I want to hear is how racist I am.

Remember earlier in the season when The Salvation Army decided it would ask people who donate to apologize for their ‘white racism’? Alienating and insulting your donors seems like sort of a bad idea if you need to raise a good bit of money for the holiday season, right? And then, when they received pushback they backpedaled a bit but didn’t really apologize for insinuating people who give them money and toys are racists.

Which seems to have resulted in some serious consequences for the charity.

Not only is the nonprofit organization short on donations, they also are in desperate need of bell ringers to staff the red kettles seen at businesses around the country. (H/T – MelP)

There is always a Salvation Army kettle near our local shopping center, and I always donated some money. I don’t think I’ll be doing that anymore, because I wouldn’t want some person to touch my dirty racist money. Great work, Salvation Army. Really top notch.

New Marvel Film Banned In Middle East

Several Middle Eastern countries have banned Marvel’s new film, “Eternals” after it was discovered there was a homosexual kiss in the movie.

A new report claims that multiple Middle Eastern countries have banned Marvel’s Eternals film over a homosexual kiss scene featured in the film.

From the reports I’ve been reading, they should have banned it because it’s godawful. Really, even Rotten Tomatoes, who bend over backwards for Marvel, gave it a 49% rating.

The Hollywood Reporter ‘s Alex Ritman claims the film has been banned in Saudia Arabia, Qatar, and Kuwait. Ritman explains, “The news emerged on Thursday, with Eternals having quietly been removed from websites in each of those countries.”

The THR writer further stated, “Sources suggest the decision was likely made over the inclusion of a same-sex couple in the film and the MCU’s first gay superhero. In one scene, the character, Phastos (played by Brian Tyree Henry), and his on-screen husband, Ben (Haaz Sleiman), share a passionate kiss.”

I’d like to think Marvel will eventually realize movie patrons don’t want woke ideology in their entertainment, but I know better. Marvel will keeps putting stupid, unwanted scenes in their awful films, because five percent of the country demands it.

Zuckerberg Lost $7 Billion Yesterday

Scumbag leftist Mark Zuckerberg lost $7 billion yesterday after Facebook went off line and a whistleblower explained how toxic Facebook is to the country. That’s a shame.

Mark Zuckerberg’s personal wealth has fallen by nearly $7 billion in a few hours, knocking him down a notch on the list of the world’s richest people, after a whistleblower came forward and outages took Facebook’s flagship products offline.

A selloff sent the social-media giant’s stock plummeting around 5% on Monday, adding to a drop of about 15% since mid-September.

Also, Facebook sold off the personal information of 1.5 billion – with a “b” – users to a hacker forum. What could possibly go wrong?

On 13 September, the Wall Street Journal began publishing a series of stories based on a cache of internal documents, revealing that Facebook knew about a wide range of problems with its products — such as Instagram’s harm to teenage girls’ mental health and misinformation about the Jan. 6 Capitol riots — while downplaying the issues in public. The reports have drawn the attention of government officials, and on Monday, the whistleblower revealed herself.

If the GOP was a legitimate party, they would have broken up Zuckerberg’s monopoly when Trump was in office. Sadly, the GOP is only slightly less worse than the Democrats, so Facebook will survive and thrive for eons to come.

Comedy Central Goes Completely Woke

Comedy Central, the network which runs South Park and The Office 24/7, has decided to ban the “Diversity Day” episode of The Office, claiming the ep is “politically incorrect.” This from the network which continually broadcasts South Park, one of the most politically correct programs ever aired.

This is what America has become. Not only are people canceled for wrongthink opinions, but television shows are now being banned by woke Hollywood douchebags.

Comedy Central removed the “Diversity Day” episode of the hit comedy series of The Office from a Sunday marathon airing of the long-running mockumentary series. The episode is just latest casualty of an increasingly censorious woke era, as it satirized contemporary corporate “diversity and inclusion” policies.

For the record, I think The Office’s first two seasons were fantastic, but it began a downward spiral in season three. That said. the removal of this episode is ridiculous.

Barstool Sports noted the omission at the time. It wrote, “Instead of just slapping up a trigger warning [disclaimer] for an episode of The Office, Comedy Central quietly omitted it from the rotation thus sending OCD-riddled completists into delirium and prompting me blog about it, drawing even more attention to this, dare I say, canceling of a modern day icon.”

The Wrap reported, “When asked during a press conference for his upcoming Peacock late-night series if the “Diversity Day” episode of The Office could be made today in the current political landscape, [Larry] Wilmore, who was a consulting producer on the sitcom, said, ‘Absolutely not.’”

The United States of America, the world’s bastion of freedom, is now banning television episodes to protect the fragile feelings of soy-based pussies. How about you air the episode, and allow free men and women decide for themselves?

Philly College About To Lose Money

Philadelphia’s Saint Joseph’s University – my Alma mater – is about to reap the consequences of going full-woke. A small, but wealthy group of alumni have decided they will no longer donate to the university; at least until they jettison their woke culture.

As an alumnus of SJU, I think this is a fantastic idea. If you want to make change, you need to hit colleges in the wallet.

A half-century after they graduated, several St. Joseph’s University alumni returned to campus Friday with signs and a message: They said they and others were willing to withhold possibly hundreds of thousands of dollars in donations because of what they perceive as the school’s move toward the far left.

In a letter delivered to university leaders at an alumni luncheon, the six alumni, spanning the graduating classes of 1968 to 1973, cited “the creeping illness that seems to be taking over the college where we learned important Jesuit values of being men for others.”

I sincerely hope this works, because SJU has been swirling the woke sewer for years. It no longer resembles the school I attended, and no longer resembles the Jesuit traditions on which it was founded.

They were particularly upset that the university removed Gregory Manco, a visiting assistant math professor and assistant baseball coach, from the classroom after his anonymous posts on social media in February against reparations for slavery and race and bias training. The university ultimately did not renew his contract, even though an investigation found there was insufficient evidence to conclude definitively that bias was shown.

I posted about Professor Manco in March, when the university canceled Manco after a few adult babies complained about his conservative tweets. You see, conservatives are not welcome at SJU, and it’s been that way for a long time.

Collectively, the withheld donations of the six alumni are in the six-figure range, said James A. Henwood, 72, a retired Philadelphia city police lieutenant who graduated from St. Joe’s in 1971. Henwood declined to say how much he was withholding, but said he was taking the university out of his estate plan. (H/T – The Godfather)

Thank you Lieutenant Henwood! I really enjoyed my time at SJU. I made a lot of friends – most of whom abandoned me when they found out I was a conservative – played lacrosse (which helped me become a coach,) and learned a lot from some terribly good professors.

That said, SJU could learn something from this; specifically, they could just teach the curriculum without the woke leftist bias.

UPS Doesn’t Recognize Gender Now

United Parcel Service (UPS) has changed the way they deliver packages. Instead of delivering the package to the homeowner, it now delivers parcels to the gender-neutral customer.

UPS drivers discovered that their delivery software had been updated this week from a system that specified the gender of the person who accepted delivery of a package, to a generic one-size-fits all term “customer.”

Previously, the delivery system required delivery drivers to specify who they had given a package to if they handed it to a person, rather than leave it by the door or garage of a destination. The options previously included, met customer (MC) man, mc woman, mc boy, mc girl.

Nothing makes me happier than reading about another major company going full woke; mostly because I know the business is likely going to suffer.

A driver who reported the system upgrade to The Post Millennial said, “Now when customers ask, ‘who did you give the package to,’ the details have been eliminated.”

This is especially problematic given the increase in package thefts by “porch pirates.” The changes make it more difficult to identify a potential impersonator of a homeowner who might accept a package on their behalf. The driver added, “Now everyone gets put in a set ‘customer,’ no matter the age or gender.”

Package thefts in my division have skyrocketed in the past year. Sometimes we solve the cases, but now, without any name or gender, how are we supposed to determine who is the rightful owner of the package. We can’t. But hey, who am I to tell UPS how to run their business?

Popular Restaurant Loses Its Mind

having survived the riots and the Chinese Wuhan Virus, an upscale pasta restaurant in Minneapolis has decided to seal its doom by forcing customers to pay an extra “equity charge.”

On its website, Broders’ has a notice to customers notifying them of a new 15 percent “benefits and equity” charge they’ve instituted. They justify the charge, first, by explaining that “many states have allowed reduced minimum wages for service staff in the form of a tip credit.”

For the record, this is a fifteen percent charge on top of the tips they expect to receive. See if you can guess why the equity charge exists…

The restaurant’s second justification is that many tippers are racist and sexist, according to uncited research.

“Studies have also shown that there is inequity and built-in bias in the way consumers give tips,” the statement reads. “In general, Black or Brown servers receive less tips than Caucasian servers. There is gender bias as well.”

I’ve been saying this since I started a blog, but it’s absolutely true. I don’t believe in tipping; I believe in over-tipping. A few months ago, I had lunch with a poster at AOSHQ. He left the tip, but afterward, I gave the waitress another $20 to thank for them being open during the pandemic. So take your overgeneralizations and stick them up your arse.

The final part of the statement says the new policy stems from wider racial injustice and is not a substitute for gratuity.

Really, this upscale restaurant which is almost always crowded suffers from racial injustice? I wonder how many minorities work there, and how often are they derided for their skin color by fellow Minnesotans? My guess is zeeo.

I wholeheartedly supported my local restaurants during the pandemic, because it was a sin that most of them had to temporarily close. That said, I sincerely hope the people of Minneapolis boycott Broders, and it has to file bankruptcy; the owners, the cooks, and the wait staff.

The New Captain America Is Fabulous!

The new iteration of Captain America is the exact opposite of the original character. Instead of a strong, man’s man, the new Captain is gay, and instead of fighting Hydra, he will be fighting those who oppress the LBGTQ community. Wow, shut up and take my money!

Marvel Comics is preparing to introduce a nose ring-wearing, gay Captain America for the character’s 80th anniversary. The new Cap will also be an LBGTQ activist.

I’m actually all for this. The sooner Marvel dies, the better.

Captain America — which first hit the newsstands in March of 1941 — is getting a makeover. Marvel will feature a new Captain America named Aaron Foster, a young gay man who the publisher says “stands for the oppressed and the forgotten.”

“Aaron is inspired by heroes of the queer community: activists, leaders, and everyday folks pushing for a better life,” backup writer Joshua Trujillo explained is a statement. “He stands for the oppressed, and the forgotten. I hope his debut story resonates with readers and helps inspire the next generation of heroes.”

Except the story won’t do any of that. Most leftists – especially members of the LGBTQ community – do not purchase comic books. Sure, they’ll applaud this decision on Twitter, but stunts like these are never successful. Worse still, it will turn off actual comic book fans, who will spend their money on other less-woke comics.

The damage done to Marvel after Stan Lee’s death has been catastrophic, as woke leftist writers have been doing their level best to ruin Lee’s iconic characters.

Oh, by the way, take a look at the new Captain at the link. It’s as terrible as you’d imagine.

A Giant Step For Wokeness

Giant Food has decided to change their shelf labels and aisles to reflect the racial diversity of their products. Many of the products will be moved – segregated, if you will – into their own locations on their own shelves.

The entire “woke culture” has done nothing but segregate people along racial lines. They claim to want equality for all, while simultaneously excluding other races – whites, especially – from their world.

Plans call for all Giant supermarkets to post the new shelf labels starting in January, the Landover, Md.-based regional grocer said yesterday. The labels will inform customers about items from companies that are women-, Black-, Asian-Indian-, Hispanic-, LGBT-, Asian-Pacific- or veteran-owned.

More than 3,100 food and nonfood products will feature the updated shelf labels across Giant’s 164 stores in Virginia, Maryland, Delaware and the District of Columbia. The retailer said the items come from 281 minority-owned businesses in its network of vendor partners.

Many colleges are doing something similar; they are accommodating African-American students who demand black-only dormitories. One wonders if they see the irony.

“Giant Food is proud to better highlight our diverse suppliers,” Giant President Ira Kress said in a statement. “We’re committed to making it easier for customers to identify product attributes that are important to them by fostering a diverse and inclusive network of suppliers that reflects the unique backgrounds and experiences of our Giant family, our customers and our communities.”

Sadly, Giant isn’t any better for this policy. It is simply echoing what the leftist colleges are doing – separating minority groups from the larger population.
