WATCH: Founder of Papa John’s Speaks Out, Tells His Side of the Story and it Isn’t Pretty

Published

John Schnatter, founder of pizza chain Papa John’s, had a very rough week last week, being forced to resign from the company he started after it was leaked to the media that he used the “n-word” during a conference call in May.

As you can probably imagine, as soon as folks on the left got hold of this, the man was slammed every which way but loose, which is why he had to leave his company, not even being given a fair shake to explain his side of things.

Well, now he’s speaking out and telling his side of the story, and it’s not pretty. Schnatter claims he was blackmailed.

“It doesn’t matter the context,” Schnatter told WLKY News. “The fact of the matter is that word hurts people. It was a strategy session, it was training. … I was just repeating what somebody else said. I was actually kind of provoked a little bit.”

Schnatter says marketing agency Laundry Service attempted to get them to partner with a third party, which has used the n-word.

“This other party used that word a lot,” explained the founder, adding, “By the fourth or fifth pass, I just said, ‘No, we’re not gonna be part of any such thing. So-and-so used the n-word, and we don’t use the n-word, and we’re not gonna use the n-word. And that’s it.’ So, we kind of shut that down quickly.”

According to a report from Forbes, during the conference call, Schnatter said “Colonel Sanders called blacks n*****s” and explained that Sanders did not receive similar backlash from the public. The media company was supposed to be helping Papa John’s with their public relations.

Two weeks after the call, Laundry Service “tried to extort us,” says Schnatter.

“They wanted 6 million dollars to make it go away. … The words were, ‘If I don’t get my effing money, I’m gonna bury the founder,’ said one of the executives. I’m not for sale.”

The company then took the story to Forbes. Schnatter also went on to hit both Forbes and The Courier, calling them out for lying.

Schnatter finished by stating he doesn’t condone racism in any way.

If this is true, the company responsible for blackmailing him deserves to have the pants sued off of them and more for breaking the law for their own personal gain.

It’s definitely not beyond the realm of possibility that this actually happened. Lots of race baiters out there love to line their pockets off this hot button issue, the Rev. Al Sharpton coming immediately to mind.

Racism is no longer about equality these days, but about creating protected classes and finding ways to profit off of civil unrest and hatred, something that’s completely despicable and just plain wrong.

Let’s hope Schnatter is somehow vindicated for this — if it turns out to be true — and that the whole mess gets straightened out by the truth, wherever it may lead.

Apple Backs Down, Will Allow Parler Back on App Store

The news is seen as a major boost for the First Amendment.

Free speech is a fickle thing, and precious too.  If we’re not careful, it can be stripped away but those who hide behind the claim that a “private” company can limit your personal freedoms. Twitter, Facebook, and other social media platforms are almost always the culprits here, bending the algorithmic reach of those with whom they disagree. Enter Parler:  A free speech app where only the bare legal minimum of content would be moderated. The platform became incredibly popular with an astonishing swiftness, but soon faced trouble from companies who had previously aligned themselves with Facebook and Twitter’s more controlling stance. Apple, who had previously booted Parler from its App Store, has now relented to the Constitution. Apple has approved Parler’s return to the iOS app store following improvements the social media company made to better detect and moderate hate speech and incitement, according to a letter the iPhone maker sent to Congress on Monday. The decision clears the way for Parler, an app popular with conservatives including some members of the far right, to be downloaded once again on Apple devices. The letter — addressed to Sen. Mike Lee and Rep. Ken Buck and obtained by CNN — explained that since the app was removed from Apple’s platform in January for violations of its policies, Parler “has proposed updates to its app and the app’s content moderation practices.” On April 14, Apple’s app review team told Parler that its proposed changes were sufficient, the letter continued. Now, all Parler needs to do is to flip the switch. The news is seen as a major boost for the First Amendment.

WATCH: NC Man Slings Rabid Bobcat Across His Front Yard

WOW!

For many North Carolinians, neighborhood living brings with it the peace of mind that the most invasive animals you might have to deal with are squirrels who are trying to rest in your attic, or raccoons hoping to fatten up from your trash can.  The Tar Heel state has some bears, sure, but they’re not often the pestering or dangerous type like you might see in the Pacific Northwest or parts of California. But one man this week got up close and personal with a seriously frightening creature this week, after it lunged at his wife from underneath their car. A disturbing video captures the moment a rabid bobcat attacks a North Carolina woman—and the moment her husband grabs it off her and throws it through the air. Kristi and Happy Wade of Burgaw were walking to their SUV to take their cat to the vet the morning of April 9 when the growling animal ran across the street and attacked, WIS-TVreports. After throwing it several feet, Happy Wade eventually shot it after it ran into the couple’s garage and then continued to charge, ABC 11 reports. A neighbor who had been jogging by at the time stopped to help and called 911. Video of the incident is simply unbelievable. https://twitter.com/nojumper/status/1383145940807163904?s=20 The bobcat was injured by Wade and later euthanized by local law enforcement.  An autopsy revealed that the animal was indeed rabid, and the family has been undergoing treatment for their numerous bite wounds.
