Trader Joe's to #Woke Droogs: LOLGF

Some #Woke Droogs signed a stupid little petition demanding that Trader Joe's change the names of some of its products.

For a while, Trader Joe's had a funny little thing going. Their Mexican food was branded as coming from "Trader Jose's." Their Italian food was from "Trader Giotto's."

Now, I guess China doesn't have a name that sounds like Joe so I guess they just looked for one of the most popular male given names and called their Chinese offerings "Trader Ming's."

This was racist, venomous little ignorant retards shrieked.

Trader Joe's said they would consider changing the names.

And then they said LOLGF, we're not changing anything.

Trader Joe's seemed to reverse a decision to rebrand some of its international food labels, denying that the packaging is racist.

After saying earlier this month that it is replacing "any variations" on the name Trader Joe's, the company said in an announcement on its website it will keep "products that resonate with our customers" on the shelves. For decades, the chain has used names like Trader Giotto's, Trader José's and Trader Ming's on international foods.

"Recently we have heard from many customers reaffirming that these name variations are largely viewed in exactly the way they were intended--as an attempt to have fun with our product marketing," the company wrote.

...


A Change.org petition organized by California high school senior Briones Bedell demanding changes to Trader Joe's branding has garnered more than 4,800 signatures as of Wednesday, but the chain said it does "not make decisions based on petitions."


The petition demanded that Trader Joe's packaging "belies a narrative of exoticism that perpetuates harmful stereotypes."

Stereotypes like "Jose is very popular boy's name in Mexico."

We can't have harmful stereotypes like that In These Trying Times.

Ten days ago Redbull fired its #Wokest executives for trying to tie Black Lives Matter around the company's neck.

Are we finally seeing corporations push back against this nonsense?

The guy who fights back against the leftist blackmail group Sleeping Giants says he tells corporations all the time that if they just ignore these people, nothing bad will happen -- the entire universe of these economic terrorists is a couple of thousand mentally ill people who don't have enough extra money from their disability checks to buy products in the first place.

I'd like to see more companies try that, for once.

33 One of my closest markets is a TJ's. I'm not really big on pre-prepared foods, and they've got some of the worst produce on the planet (they just aren't set up to care for it, and their sources are "iffy"), but I like a lot of their dried goods and the dairy/cheese section. Some of their seasonal specialties are ok too.

Unfortunately, they're the Tower Records of the 21st century as far as employees. They're almost all blue/green/orange haired transgender tattoo piercing lefties. At least here in the Bay Area. But on a positive note, they've got great music.

I think a good part of the reason I've lost weight after moving to Texas is that I'm no longer in walking distance of a Trader Joe's. Now when I need something from them I have to add it to a shopping list, and junk food doesn't go on the list.

++++++++++
Most businesses are dominated by progs, and as most business have learned, there are enough progs in their bases to make capitulation an obvious choice. There are exceptions - some businesses like gun stores, for example, would be ruined by capitulation. Most won't be. Whether this is because most people are progs or because most people cannot be bothered to object, I do not know. I suspect there are for progs than I would have previously imagined. I doubt they are the majority, but there are more than enough to win.

Trader Joe's is a strange place. Their prices are much lower than one would expect and they have a lot of nice stuff. But very small quantities of it, and spread out over wide aisles so its like the store isn't carrying enough to fill the space it is in.

56 The petition demanded that Trader Joe's packaging "belies a narrative of exoticism that perpetuates harmful stereotypes."
________________

"Exotic" means originating in or characteristic of a foreign land.

In the U.S., Mexico and Italy and China are foreign lands. And people in those lands typically have names like Jose and Giotto and Ming, and there's nothing "harmful" or "raaaaacist" in using those names on one's products that originate from or are characteristic of the foods eaten in those foreign lands. In fact, it is a friendly tribute to those people and their cultures, and it would be harmful and raaaaacist and non-tolerant and non-inclusive to NOT name the products for them.

So GFY, little snowflake petitioner. The only offensive actions here are your own.

You and me both, brother. In my company's quixotic quest to remove "offensive" language from our source code, documentation and all correspondence, they have some interesting replacement language. My favorite is "white hat" and "black hat." Both are forbidden now. Their replacement is "ethical" and "unethical." They have no replacement for "gray hat" and I wonder when they'll figure it out. I also wonder when they'll figure out that the replacements are not perfect synonyms and if they care about the pollution they are creating in pursuit of their woke aspirations.

97 Butcher's urban fantasy thing lost its way books ago, now I don't think even he knows what the hell he's doing with the character.

It was never meant to be this big thing anyway, he tried to sell his elemental magic fantasy and no publisher wanted to print any more of that kind of thing. So he knocked off the first Dresden book just to make money and get a sale and it went huge. There had been urban fantasy before that but he really for some reason connected with people and it took off like crazy.

So it wasn't a planned series, there's no idea behind it other than "well hell, I need to pay rent." And it shows.

When I lived in walking distance of one, I used their yogurt exclusively. It was the best at the best price in the area. It was the first yogurt I tried that I liked. So congratulations.

And yeah, sometimes I mixed the cream in, sometimes I used the cream to make biscuits.

This is funny because it's true. I unfriended a dear friend in Portland in 2016, not because she's an SJW (she's a happy warrior liberal) but because of her friends. They were SHOCKED that they couldn't just pick up and move to Canada. They bitterly shared that 1) they had to have substantial savings, 2) they had to have marketable skills and/or a job lined up, 3) they have no physical disabilities, and 4) they have no mental health issues.

#4 was such a problem for so many of them! It also became clear that people dissatisfied with their lives in the US are looking for political caretakers.

135 I'm addicted to their plain full-fat greek yogurt.

I didn't send it to the cookbook but there's a super simple recipe for making soft cheese out of that stuff. You put the yogurt in a strainer with a cheesecloth over a container and gravity (plus some pressure if you want to speed things along) drains the excess fluid off, leaving a soft lump. Mix in chives, salt, garlic, whatever for a spread.

Takes a day or so to really drain it out, so you can just stick the works in the refrigerator and forget about it a while.

Yup, this is certainly true of my company. We do little work with consumers. We're a business-to-business firm. Our customers are other businesses for the msot part.

And yet, we're purging and sanitizing language everywhere - inside and out, and being instructed to not use such language in E-Mails, phone calls, etc. - of our own volition due to our own internal pressures and internal executive enthusiasm. No one outside demanded it. The attitudes outside in public surely contributed, but they are not the cause.

No, not yet anyway. But they have assigned engineering teams to go replace all the bad thoughts. It'll be a riot when find them in routine and variable names (sine white and black are pretty common terms) and have to carefully rework it all to make sure they don't clobber existing names. It's gonna be a riot when the next release does weird shit because they couldn't leave well enough alone.

Yeah that character was still reasonable. Capable, but not so great she was equal to the mages and super powers, and she needed help.

The whole "warrior wielding a holy Christian weapon is Jewish and in a thruple relationship" is what pissed me off.

I think he realized that his paladin character was too popular and was overshadowing his avatar (Dresden is clearly Butcher) so he crippled and took him out of the game, but had to replace him with someone.

208 K-12 teachers. Holy Cow. I hope most mayors order them to teach in classrooms, beginning the planned first day of classes, or be fired. In Texas, children under 10 are exempted from the current wear-mask order. If those kids can go to grocery and other stores without masks, and the store employees and the kids themselves aren't dying like flies, what makes a classroom a different situation?

I suppose that teachers ordered to go to their schools and teach can all call in sick forever, under terms of their union-city agreements. But aren't nurses unionized in many cities? I think they're working. Or did I miss the CNNMSNBC reports that say hundreds of nurses are dying from COVID every day?


Seems to me something's got to give within about 4 weeks, so kids can go to school in classrooms. But I'm wrong, no doubt. Reason (like Elvis) has left the building. On all things COVID.

228 Here's the thing, I went through my rewrite of Western Hero carefully taking out all references to "he" and so on, to replace them with generic "the character" or "they" type references.

Why? Not out of some woke sense of gender neutrality or LBGQWERTY nonsense. Its been my experience that women can feel excluded by seeing exclusively masculine pronouns in work, but men don't care if its been turned neutral.

D&D screwed up by swapping all the "he's" to "she's" in a blatant pandering stumble of stupidity. That turns off guys and makes women confused: is this a game about girls?

But neutral stuff is just neutral and can be anyone.

I know what you're saying but that group is the customer and they communicate demand. Supply and demand in a capital system works wonderfully. Business that understand that are already doing exactly what they should The fault lies with the woke business who should never fall for these grief-politburos allowing them to run their business. It's collectivism by cowardice.

Nah. They're happy to cancel some mom and pop gun shop, or some blogger with a few thousand in donations a year, because that lets them look "woke" without impacting their bottom line in any meaningful way.

They aren't going to cut off Trader Joe's, because that would cost them real money.

I agree. Football isn't like some sports where the skill level is clear player to player expect in some very specific positions. If the QB cannot pass for crap, you'll notice. If the receivers can't hold on to the ball you'll notice. But I mean.. if the Linemen can't block very well, but the offensive line can't break through, its just going to look like normal.

A guess?

It's like the "sue then settle" scam where activists work with fed gov employees at EPA, NPS, whatever and they arrange for the activist org to sue the fed gov over some policy, then the government settles the lawsuit and implements what the activists demanded --- because everyone involved wants it, but they use the lawsuit as their mandate to do it.

I would bet a lot of these marketing teams are woke, and they don't mind when targeted because it gives them cover to do what they wanted to do, only now they sell it to management as "we have to do this or the mob will kill our business."

And D&D (as well as all fantasy in general) is the least racist, sexist genre out there. Because its a magical setting and has weird alternate races, nobody is assumed to be a white person because that world may not even HAVE white people.

I think the leagues are underestimating just how important that is, to the players and fans.

Their managements are full of new hires in their 20s with the right credentials. They don't have to know their customer base, they'll "educate" them. They see the world as their upscale hipster urban enclave peers, can't imagine anyone being offended other than those "trailer park Trump voters"

They're what Ben Rhodes described the young people working for him as; "They're 27 and they don't know anything"

The NBA and the NCAA mostly call traveling only for a player moving his non-pivot foot, or for jumping and landing a second time without a dribble. While dribbling or running to make a dunk? Hardly ever called, nor is palming. I've seen those called, but they are super-rare especially in the NBA.

Ah, well. I don't think changing Aunt Jemima's image alone will do it. I think 'Aunt Bea' might work.

As for the Indian maid on Land-O-Lakes margarine, I suggest Iron Eyes Cody instead. Is using an Italian racist?

Back to 'Uncle Ben's' rice, I think a white guy, and 'Uncle Ofay' might be acceptable.

343 Something very weird has happened to big business, where all of the cutthroat, cold hearted money or nothing guys seem to be gone and in their place are these bois who are more concerned about how they seem than making money.


They were all sucked into developing increasingly complex financial instruments and selling them to suckers. Additionally, I suspect that much of US corporate culture was influenced by WWII and the fact that so many of the leadership were in the military or in a position where "we need to get this shit done" was paramount. Over time that attitude has faded away.

350 Cancel culture is the outcome of "what if women ran the world."

this is correct. it's also (female dominance) the reason for why lefty (R and D) governors and mayors have been so heavy handed through the lockdowns/panic.

FEMALES ENFORCE SOCIAL COHESION

they cannot stand divergence. it must be stamped out. they cannot stand freedom - it would mean some would be free to choose differently. ALL MUST BE THE SAME.

a local talker, Dom Giordano, was mystified by why parents (read: moms) in certain SE PA school districts were pushing the districts so hard to completely shut the schools. the school districts had come up with a plan where you could go in person, or choose to do remote learning too. How could that, having the option to do as you wish, be bad? he could not understand. but I do.

it's the same with the breastfeeding wars, the work or stay home wars, the COVID wars...women don't like people do things differently than what they want to do. and they feel extremely comfortable with any authority figures handy making sure people DON'T have choices. that's "social cohesion."

it's a very natural, primal urge female humans have. I'm one, and I can tell you, this is a real thing, and it's why matriarchies do not progress, and tend to fail spectacularly.

Posted by: BlackOrchid_j9HX3 at July 31, 2020 03:12 PM (j9HX3)

351 > I thought he was a General. Is this his brother or something?

One son to inherit the farm/family business, one son for the military, one son for the church.

That cut out the inheritance disputes. Military son either got killed or conquered his own territories. Church son wasn't allowed to breed, taking him out of the picture as well (but served as a backup son if something happened to the eldest... you could usually pry him away from the church for a small fee).

We need to make fistfights more socially acceptable.

The idea that 'there's no reason to hit someone' is completely wrong. Fighting words are a thing, and most men understand that The Line exists, and if you cross it, it is now okay for the other person to give you a bloody nose.

Trouble is we've bred thin skinned narcissism and vindictive viciousness and aversion to being 'disrespected' so far into the culture there's almost no way to do this without someone winding up dead.

354 322 I wonder how many people realize that after the first Obama election, Pepsi changed their logo to subliminally reflect the Obama campaign logo.

Yeah I noticed that. Didn't help them, I don't think they gained any market share. Most soft drink companies got kicked around pretty good by the sudden surge of vaguely flavored fizz waters. Which I happen to like: no sugar, no caffeine, no funny additives.
Posted by: Christopher R Taylor at July 31, 2020 03:07 PM

I did. I'm a Pepsi-holic, so even that undeclared political contribution couldn't stop me from drinking it.

It does raise the larger point, however, that companies that we identify as "American" no longer are. They are global conglomerates with interests all over the world. The leadership of these companies are often foreign (born or citizens). Like Sundar Pichai. They are no longer interested in evoking an "all-American" identity.

363 Fen I don't think all women are evil, and of course I am generalizing

I also think it's super important to be aware of natural tendencies inherent in both sexes, in order to OVERCOME them. shutting your eyes to reality doesn't help.

women have to push themselves to get out of their comfort zones, to not judge, to try to suppress their urge to control the behavior of others.

this is important for REAL social cohesion, and for human progress.

that's all. I point it out because it's very important in understanding some of what's going on, so we can stop it before America collapses fully, which is what a matriarchy WILL cause.

This is why I cannot stand a lot of women and the bitchy queens who mimic this behavior. It's taught to girls from birth through media and education.
