In-N-Out Burger Stands Firm on Decision to Donate to GOP. Here’s What They Had to Say

Published

Earlier this week, liberals freaked out over In-N-Out Burger donating $25,000 to the GOP, posting all of their faux outrage all over social media and discussing how they were going to boycott the restaurant chain.

You know, typical left-wing overreaction to something that’s not all that big of a deal.

Well, In-N-Out has released a statement about the whole thing, and they aren’t backing down, much to the chagrin of progressives all over the state of California.

Earlier this week, D.C.-based journalist Gabe Schneider stoked the ire of SJWs when he revealed that In-N-Out gave $25,000 to the California Republican Party in 2018, which was confirmed by a public filing on the Secretary of State’s website.

Soon after, the hashtag #BoycottInNOut began trending on Twitter with the same fire and fury as seen during the Chick-fil-A controversy when CEO Dan Cathy revealed his support for traditional marriage. Even California Democratic Party Chair Eric Bauman joined in on the boycott. Fortunately, like Chick-fil-A, the burger chain has not decided to cave to the pressure.

In a statement, In-N-Out Burger executive vice president Arnie Wensinger defended the company’s donations, noting that the company has given to both parties.

“In 2018, In-N-Out Burger has made equal contributions to both Democratic and Republican Political Action Committees in the State of California,” Wensinger wrote on Thursday, going on to say the contribution was not about party affiliation but “policies that strengthen California” and help the company provide “strong pay and great benefits” for its employees.”

“We have been fortunate to do business in this great state for almost 70 years,” the statement continued. “While it is unfortunate that our contributions to support both political parties in California has caused concern with some groups, we believe that bipartisan support is a fair and consistent approach that best serves the interests of our company and all of our Customers.”

Here is the full statement from In-N-Out:

In 2018, In-N-Out Burger has made equal contributions to both Democratic and Republican Political Action Committees in the State of California. For years, In-N-Out Burger has supported lawmakers who, regardless of political affiliation, promote policies that strengthen California and allow us to continue operating with the values of providing strong pay and great benefits for our Associates.

It is actually far more important to In-N-Out and our Foundations to support our communities by contributing millions of dollars to hundreds of organizations in California to prevent child abuse, human trafficking and substance addiction.

We have been fortunate to do business in this great state for almost 70 years. While it is unfortunate that our contributions to support both political parties in California has caused concern with some groups, we believe that bipartisan support is a fair and consistent approach that best serves the interests of our company and all of our Customers.

Again, what the left doesn’t seem to understand is that there are more folks in this country who are right of center than are hardcore left-wingers. As such, when the vast majority of the American population witnesses the bullying tactics of the progressive movement, they tend to rebel.

What the left is really doing is drumming up more business for In-N-Out, which in turn means the company will be able to donate more to causes of their choice. They’re little boycott freak out is actually funding the very thing they are boycotting.

It’s hilarious.

Southern Restaurant Scorched After Refusing to Serve Unvaccinated People

The unvaccinated are quickly becoming second class citizens in America.

In these late-stages of the pandemic, there are a number of emerging plot lines that almost seem more controversial than those that we experienced at the beginning of this fiasco, and it makes us wonder if some of it isn’t just for show. For instance, in the restaurant industry, where just about every businesses owner is struggling mightily, there are a number of different approaches to dealing with this latest “delta” variant of COVID-19.  This is of particular note now that many establishments had reopened during the lull in cases, and are now hanging on for dear life during “delta”. But one restaurant in the deep south has thrown their prosperity aside, and are making the controversial decision to serve only vaccinated customers. An Atlanta restaurant is making the bold decision to serve only customers who are fully vaccinated. Argosy Restaurant and Bar, located in East Atlanta Village, is one of the first businesses in Georgia to mandate with signs that say “No Vax, No Service.” The company owner made the decision earlier this week after he and several of his employees, who were all fully vaccinated, contracted the virus as breakthrough cases. The owner has suggested that these breakthrough cases were worse for business than treating the unvaccinated as though they are second class citizens. “We did it strictly as a business decision after multiple staff members tested positive,” said restaurant owner Armando Celentano. “We had to close down during a busy weekend, losing out on tens of thousands of dollars.” The decisions certainly stirred up a great deal of conversation on social media, where the restaurant received both praise and criticism for its decision.

US Women’s Soccer Team Skips Representing U.S.A. at Opening Ceremony

The ultra-woke U.S. women’s soccer team — big losers thus far — decided to skip representing the U.S.A. during the Olympics opening ceremonies.

The ultra-woke U.S. women’s soccer team — big losers thus far — decided to skip representing the U.S.A. during the opening ceremonies at the Tokyo Olympics Friday. The famously anti-American soccer team claimed that they could not attend because they were scheduled to attend practice during the opening event, according to WXIA-TV. “Obviously we can’t be there, I don’t know who scheduled us to practice at this time,” chief anti-American team star Megan Rapinoe told the media. The women’s soccer team was all about protesting against the U.S.A. during its first Olympics game this week but lost to New Zealand in a crushing 3-0 final. Rapinoe added that this year’s gams are different than past games. “It looks quite different and feels quite different than in the past, but all of us are thrilled to be here,” she said. Team members Abby Dahlkemper and Rapinoe enacted a lame “private parade” and posted it to Twitter: https://twitter.com/USWNT/status/1418557013739536390 The America-hating women’s soccer team was not the only American team that skipped the opening ceremonies. Both the women’s and the men’s U.S. gymnastics teams also skipped the ceremonies. They similarly held their own version of the parade” https://twitter.com/InsideGym/status/1418539840564572160 Follow Warner Todd Huston on Facebook at: facebook.com/Warner.Todd.Huston.
