“Food injustice”

Published

The next all-American tradition that leftists are trying to cancel is the venerable apple pie. Yes, I mean the tasty fruit pastry, mom’s homemade apple pie. It’s now “racist” and a result of “genocide.”

The leftists at the Guardian are targeting mom’s apple pie after one of the paper’s writers said the desert was linked to “a vast and ongoing genocide of indigenous people. ”

The idiot writing the piece claimed that the there is such a thing as “food injustice.”

The piece, entitled “Food injustice has deep roots: let’s start with America’s apple pie’, claims the pie has ‘bloody origins’ and is ‘as American as stolen land, wealth and labor.”

Per the Daily Mail:

Patel is a British Indian author and documentary maker who has in the past described himself as having ‘very strong anarchist sympathies.’

He is best known for his book ‘Stuffed and Starved: The Hidden Battle for the World Food System’ which delves into food injustices around the world.

Patel, who now has US citizenship, is also a vocal activist, taking part in the World Trade Organization protest in Seattle in 1999 – after having worked for the organization earlier on in his career.

Explaining his issues with apple pie in greater detail, Patel wrote in The Guardian: ‘Apples traveled to the western hemisphere with colonists in the 1500s in what used to be called the Columbian Exchange, but is now better understood as a vast and ongoing genocide of Indigenous people.’

The author went on to say that English colonizers used apple trees ‘as markers of civilization, which is to say property,’ in new lands where they settled.

He added: ‘John Chapman, better known as Johnny Appleseed, took these markers of colonized property to the frontiers of US expansion where his trees stood as symbols that Indigenous communities had been extirpated.’

Turning his attention to the pie’s crust, Patel continued: ‘Not that the sugar on the crust is uniquely American.’ He then detailed how sugar’s arrival in the United States in the 1700s was inextricably linked to the French slavery trade in New Orleans, and that the Big Easy ‘had become a concomitant hub of the slave trade’ as the sweet stuff’s popularity burgeoned.

This moron even claimed that the checked cloth apple pies are often photographed sitting on is racist because cotton cloth is stolen from the Native Americans.

It is easy to dismiss leftist loons like this Patel fool. But the problem is, these scumbags disgorge their stupidity and then their buddies in the movement disseminate it and push it until it becomes “accepted fact” among the illeterati. Eventually the media then “reports” it as fact, our miseducation establishment then begins teaching it as if it is true.

This is how this garbage becomes “truth.”

That is why we need to be aware of it so we can fight it.

The Posh Get Sloshed! Affluent Greenwich Village Overrun by Drunks and Drugs

Another Democrat-run city turns chaotic.

Published

on

There has been plenty of talk of late about the great liberal migration, in which cities like New York and San Fransisco are hemorrhaging citizens on account of Democratic policies. The policies often see crime and taxes spike simultaneously, which shouldn’t make sense at all.  If the government is getting more money, there should be less trouble, right? Wrong.  And even in the ritziest parts of some of these liberal cities, the situation is getting out of hand. New York City’s Greenwich Village is home to movie stars and other big-name celebrities – and lately, a host of crime and violence issues both inside a local park and on the neighborhood’s streets. Just Wednesday, the New York Police Department (NYPD) announced it was looking for a man who broke into a Greenwich Village apartment and rubbed his penis on a 10-year-old girl’s feet. The man is believed to have slipped into the apartment through a fire escape around 1 a.m. on June 11, police said. The girl awoke to find the man standing at the edge of her bed. And that’s not all: Locals also told the Post drug use has been more prominent than they’ve ever seen. “I know drugs have been in Washington Square Park for a long time, but I have never seen anything like this before,” neighborhood resident Jennifer Nyp told the news site. Ruth Wyatt, who has lived near the park for more than two decades, told the Post: “The situation in the park and its surroundings has gotten out of control.” At the beginning of June, the news of crime and rampant drug use inside the famed park prompted the NYPD to move the park’s midnight curfew up to 10 p.m. But chaos ensued between people within the park and police who arrived to…

Kim Jong Un Threatens Military Battle with USA in Latest Rant

The predictable escalation received little response on the world’s stage, however.

Kim Jong Un

The unhinged nature of North Korea was on display again this week, as “Supreme” Leader Kim Jong Un began his nearly-predictable threats against the United States. Kim, and those who came before him, have long employed a strategy of raising a large fuss on the world stage to get attention, and then backing down from those inane threats only if they get something in return.  Often, the requests have to do with lifting sanctions or aid, as the tiny hermit kingdom is far from capable of even feeding its own people. And so, as was always going to happen, North Korea put on their war pants this week and started strutting around. North Korean leader Kim Jong Un ordered his government to be prepared for both dialogue and confrontation with the Biden administration — but more for confrontation, state media reported Friday, days after the United States and others urged the North to abandon its nuclear program and return to talks. Kim’s statement indicates he’ll likely push to strength his nuclear arsenal and increase pressure on Washington to give up what North Korea considers a hostile U.S. policy, though he’ll also prepare for talks to resume, some experts say. Why now? Earlier this week, leaders of the Group of Seven wealthy nations issued a statement calling for the complete denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula and “the verifiable and irreversible abandonment” North Korea’s nuclear and missile programs. They called on North Korea to engage and resume dialogue and respect human rights conditions. Sung Kim, the top U.S. official on North Korea, is to visit Seoul on Saturday for a trilateral meeting with South Korean and Japanese officials. His travel emphasizes the importance of the trilateral cooperation in working toward complete denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula, the State Department said Thursday. Kim…
