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.

40 Bill Penzy has been pulling this stunt in his company's newsletter catalogs for some time now. He was angrily opposed to Scott Walker, and about lost his shit during the Walker recall.

A couple of fun facts:

Bill Penzy calls everybody who disagrees with him racist. Yet he lives in an all-white suburban community distant from the urban area where his business is located.

And none of his many retail outlets are located in inner cities. In fact, they all are located in undiverse suburban areas.

He is a loony, raging, liberal hypocrite. (And his sister's much smaller business sells far better products).

Doesn't that seem to be so often the case? Back when, I interviewed at a consultancy. After the wife of the CEO (the useless son of the founder) eyed me up and down prospectively as I sat in the lobby, I was invited in to speak with Dad's Mini Me. He started off by telling me he was a very liberal Democrat (huge surprise, as he was an MoT from NYC), and loved all the brethren.

Then, on the same breath, he segued into a "Downfallesque" rant about how I would never be CEO unless and until I bought him out, and until then he ran a tight ship, where it was his way or the highway, and how when he said "Jump," by God all employees had better say, "How high, sir?"

I watched in horror/fascination. My sole contribution to this conversation to this point?

"Yes, please, cream and sugar."

Exactly. In decades past I don't think people were obsessed with politics 24/7. That's because the government left them alone to live their own lives for the most part.

When you have government micromanaging every aspect of your life, politics necessarily becomes paramount.

Up until now, the only one playing politics was the Left, which has worked out pretty well in advancing their radical agenda, despite the R's "controlling" just about everything everywhere (insert jerkoff hand gesture here).

The chief reason the Left has managed to take away so much of our freedom is because most people believe the Left believes the crap that comes out of their mouths.

In Texas, and I'm sure a few other states as well, it's not unusual for a business to be openly Christian.

My wife and I met at a Bible Study at work decades ago. It was at a large company that you've heard of. It's not as up front about being Christian since the founder died back around 2000 or so, but they still operate on Christian principles.

You and the Rev should move to Texas. :-)

It's like Florida in 2000, the left would use Michigan flipping to Clinton (if that happened) to say the whole voting process is flawed. Even though Bush won every which way Florida was counted, it always goes back to the Supreme Court "appointing" him as President.

Then, Ohio in 2004 that the voting machines gave him the victory there even though Bush won by over 100,000 votes (2%).

276 Yo, VIP, let's kick it!
spice spice baby
Spice spice baby
All right stop
Collaborate and listen
Spice is back with my brand new invention
Something grabs a hold of me tightly
Then I flow that a harpoon daily and nightly
Will it ever stop?
Yo, I don't know
Turn off the lights and I'll glow
To the extreme I rock a mic like a vandal
Light up a stage and wax a chump like a candle

But, yeah, ol' Bill's been getting a little more preachy by the year. I've been shrugging it off for a long time -- live and let live, you know. But this is just too much, even for me. There's a couple other spice stores in Omaha I can patronize. I just don't understand a businessman who would gratuitously offend half his customer base. I owned a very small business for a little more than twenty years, and I bit my tongue more than once when a customer said something truly outstandingly stupid.

Several months ago I wrote him to tell him I'd had enough and for him to stick to something he knew about and stop using his customer list for distributing left-wing propaganda and then unsubscribed. Now it looks like I can unsubscribe from his business as well. Awesome! I definitely will be placing my next order with Spice House.
