Santa Barbara’s Straw Ban Goes Full Fascist…You Won’t Believe How Strict These Laws Are

Published

on

Can you imagine going to jail–that’s right, jail–for simply handing a straw to a customer at a restaurant?

This is the level of insanity the eco-fascists in Santa Barbara have achieved, and yet, straws barely pose a threat to the environment, proving once and for all that the green agenda is about nothing more than unprecedented levels of control.

The National Review explains:

The city of Santa Barbara has passed an ordinance that will allow restaurant employees to be punished with up to six months of jail time or a $1,000 fine for giving plastic straws to their customers.

The bill was passed unanimously last Tuesday, and covers bars, restaurants, and other food-service businesses. Establishments will still be allowed to hand out plastic stirrers, but only if customers request them.

They also explain that while Santa Barbara’s straw ban is hardly the first in the nation, it’s certainly the most strict, especially when you consider the facts that they’ve not only banned compostable straws as well (…wut) but rogue servers are faced with an infraction for each unsolicited straw they hand out, so one may end up facing years in prison for passing out enough…straws. STRAWS.

And of course, like all psychotically oppressive green agenda policies, it will do little for the environment.

As Reason notes, straws represent only 0.02 percent of the amount of plastic waste that is estimated to go into the ocean each year. What’s more, the United States is responsible for only about 1 percent of the total amount of plastic waste that’s in the ocean overall. All things considered, this new ordinance isn’t going to be making a real dent in the problem it’s intended to solve — but it could create some harm. As Reason explains, straw bans could end up having a negative impact on disabled people who cannot drink without them.

That is, of course, no matter to virtue signaling leftists who care more about the environment than they do people, and often don’t even bother to check and see if their reusable this or banned that is actually making an impact on anyone except regular, everyday people.

Wokesters Now Say You are a Racist if You Fear Pit Bull Dogs

In today’s episode of “You Stinkin’ Racist,” woke fanatics are now saying you are a racist if you fear the dangerous pit bull dog.

In today’s episode of “You Stinkin’ Racist,” woke fanatics are now saying you are a racist if you fear the dangerous pit bull dog. The leftist activists at the Animal Farm Foundation recently declared that you are a racist if you fear pit bulls because the pit bull is “the black man’s dog” since it is popular with blacks. The non-profit claims that it is “dedicated to securing equal treatment and opportunity for pit bull dogs and their owners,” and aims to fight against “exclusionary dog breed restrictions in the housing insurance industry.” In other words, the group wants to smooth the way for pit bulls and their owners. The group also relies heavily on a “study” by Harvard Law School’s Ann Linder who wrote a paper titled “The Black Man’s Dog: The Social Context of Breed Specific Legislation.” Linder says that the pit bull has been “gang violence by urban youths, as well as the hip-hop music scene.” However, the pit bull has a bad reputation because it is a dangerous animal. Campus Reform pointed out that pit bulls represent about 6.5% of all dogs in the United States, yet the breed was responsible for 66% of total fatal dog attacks between 2005 and 2017. Oh, but it’s all about racism, you see. You don’t fear pit bulls because the breed is powerful and dangerous. No, you fear pit bulls because you are a racist. The left is never happy unless it is re-fashion reality to its fantasy world. Follow Warner Todd Huston on Facebook at: facebook.com/Warner.Todd.Huston.

‘NY Times’ Reporter Says Trump Voters are ‘Enemies of the State’ and ‘National Security Threats’

A reporter for the ‘New York Times’ recently said that Republicans should be termed “enemies of the state” and are a “national security threat.”

A leftist reporter for the New York Times recently said out loud what every Democrat and liberal thinks; that Republicans should be termed “enemies of the state” and that theyare a “national security threat.” You know that this is what every liberal says to each other when they are in private, of course. But most know they shouldn’t say it out loud. Still, the Old Gray Lady’s Katie Benner decided to just blurt it out, anyway. While talking about Nancy Pelosi’s fake Jan. 6 show trials, Benner was expounding about how evil conservatives, Republicans, and Trump voters are on her Twitter feed when she “went there”: Notice how she tried to be cagy by not using Trump’s name directly, saying instead she felt the need to start “calling a politician’s supporters enemies of the state.” Since Pelosi’s goal is to tar all Trump voters as “insurrectionists” with her fake tribunal, who else but Trump could Benner have been talking about? And to prove that she was using round-about language to call all Republicans “enemies of the state,” she later deleted her tweets to shove them in the memory hole so people would forget she spilled the liberal beans. But make no mistake. This is how all liberals feel. They don’t view you aa just wrong politically. They view you as out right evil and deserving of no rights.
