Here's Another Company That Doesn't Want Our Business

I'm referring, of course, to Penzey's Spices:

Penzeys, a Wauwatosa (Wisconsin)-based company famous for its spices, is in the middle of a political firestorm after its owner slammed President-elect Donald Trump and the voters who supported him.

So in other words, Penzey is adopting the Roger Goodell business model that has proven to be a big success with the NFL: Drive away half your potential market even before you try to sell to them, since you really don't need those rubes and hayseeds, anyway.

"The open embrace of racism by the Republican Party in this election is now unleashing a wave of ugliness unseen in this country for decades," Bill Penzey Jr. wrote in a Tuesday night email to the company's mailing list. "The American people are taking notice."

Yeah, I'd agree with that last part. The American people *are* taking notice, which is why Donald Trump is now President Elect Donald Trump. If Penzey thinks this election is bringing some kind of progressive wave, that's pretty damned delusional. That's Hitler-in-a-bunker-raving-about-Steiner delusional.

So suck it, Bill. Steiner's not coming.


Since Bill has made it clear we're not welcome in his establishment, we will take our business elsewhere. My suggested alternative is The Spice House.





Fun fact: The lady who owns The Spice House is Bill Penzey's sister:



Oh ho! Zing! Now, I have no idea what her politics are. For all I know, she's a big-time Hillary supporter. Who knows? Who cares? It's fun, though, to see her take immediately advantage of her idiot brother's unforced error to expand her customer base at the expense of his.

Oh, and Bill? One more thing:

Hillary Clinton will never be president.


(h/t to MTF who mentioned this in one of the morning threads)

Update: This is not something new with Mr. Penzey. Apparently, he's been the worst kind of SJW hypocrite for quite some time.
