Cultural Appropriation – BAD!

  1. A Good Proggie is well travelled and brings their love of Cultures Autre back to their boringly American cities in the form of objet d’art, native masks, pretty native costumes and, of course, food.

    Traffic circles. Don’t forget the traffic circles. Ptooey

  2. you all boldly and pretty fucking unapologetically stole the basis of these women’s livelihoods,
    Whelp… if the maker of that statement really cares, why doesn’t he volunteer to buy and run the goods from all those little brown villages up to Portland or any other Progtown and sell them with source attribution?
    Could it be virtue signalling? Self righteousness? Too lazy and content with his government handouts? Hypocrisy? Assholia?
    I’ll take all of the above for $200, Alex.

    I’m well traveled, and while I enjoyed seeing other places and cultures, found many things good or interesting, my travels still made me appreciate just how good life is here in the USA.

  3. Evidently, the “melting pot” destroys “diversity.”
    American culture has always been a threat to racial and ethnic purity.
    Oh, wait… are Progs appropriating Nazi and Klan culture?

  6. I noticed how you worked “C______er” in there. Racist.

  7. I have a white friend who says, “You can’t say ‘cracker’, that’s our word!” (He also calls his Chihuahua/Dachshund mix a Beanerschnitzel.)

    I also feel like I’ve been living under a rock, because the first time I heard of “CP time” was when Hillary Clinton used the term and called it “Career Politician time” or some such. I actually had to search the internet for “cp time” to find out what it stood for and why it made people cringe.

    Being in a predominantly white, conservative, religious state, common perceptions say that I’d be surrounded by racists. I’ve found that almost nobody really cares. You’re judged on the content of your character.

    There’s always a racist to be found if you look hard enough. I’ve only met two while growing up in Idaho that didn’t like me because of my ancestry. (One actually called me a half-breed to my face) But the most overt racists I’ve met were “enlightened” individuals from “diverse” communities.

    It never ceases to amaze me how racist liberals can be, but they almost never seem to get called on it. Yet some republican says, “Macaca” and all hell breaks loose.

  8. If I can help confuse matters more, a Frankfurter (resident of the German city) does not eat a Frankfurter, but a Wiener.

    However, in Wien (Vienna), one eats a Frankfurter, not a Wiener. This is because the butcher who brought these meats to Vienna, Johann Georg Lahner, learned his trade in Frankfurt. Initially they were called, Lahner Würste, but later that changed to Frankfurter.

    So let’s throw in another angle, where did Lahner originally come from? Not Frankfurt, but rather Gasseldorf, which is in what we call the Fränkische Schweiz, i.e., the Franconian Switzerland.

    Now the Fränkische Schweiz is not in Switzerland, but in Oberfranken (Upper Franconia), which is in Bayern, better known in English as Bavaria. Whether Bavaria is in Germany depends on who you talk to in Bavaria on any given day.

    The Bavarians pride themselves on their independence (and their amazing football [soccer]), as signs on their borders always attest to:

    (Yes, even on the very top of the Zugspitze, Germany’s highest peak, the shield/sign is there to let you know you are actually on the border of Bavaria and Austria.)

    So, who “culturally” owns the Frankfurter — the Frankfurter, the Wiener, or the fränkischen Schweizer???

  9. This only reinforces my belief you have to be bat shit crazy to be a liberal. Other than harboring terrorist, killing puppies, or using road kill for meat, there are few reasons to remove the opportunity to relish tasty burritos seasoned to perfection, filled with tender beef, and served on a hot plate….and some socio-justice horseshit doesn’t even come close.

    In a perfect world, they’d not only close down Portland, they’d bulldoze the land, and till salt into the soil.

  10. Cultural Appropriation — like Maxine Waters’ hairstyle? (Or should I say wig style?)

  11. I’d have ignored the “social justice warriors”. They probably eat at Taco Bell anyway. But no, these poor little girls shut down their business because they couldn’t stand the abuse.

    Unfortunately, I live in Portland – but we’re putting the house on the market so we can move the hell out of this insane asylum.

  12. We should gather a group of burly white men to go out and return the favor:

    See any non-whites wearing blue jeans? Knock’em down and de-pants them “for cultural appropriation.” Denims were invented by Levi Strauss, a white guy.

    See any non-whites driving cars? Circle the car and drag them out “for cultural appropriation.” Cars were invented by several white people (Ford, Daimler, etc.).

    See any non-whites using cell phones? Knock’em out of their hands “for cultural appropriation.” Cell phone technology was developed by white guys.

    See any non-whites attending college? Tell them to expel themselves “for cultural appropriation.” The college/university concept was developed by white Europeans.

    We can have lots of fun returning the favor…….

  13. Oh, and the “freedoms” they think they enjoy in the US? Developed by a bunch of white guys between 1776 and 1782…..

  14. I have appropriated a lot of foods, because I’m insensitive like that and because I like to eat and other cultures make some darn fine food.

    By the way, what about the cultural appropriation of Indian food by people from Pakistan? I think those SJW’s should head right on over to the border between India and Pakistan and tell those people what’s what. Set them straight, so to speak. Oh, yeah, send video so I know how well that worked out.

  15. Kooks Burritos on Cesar Chavez Boulevard in Portland

    . Was it cultural appropriation to rename 39th Avenue for a Mexican American?

    they learned their craft from women in Puerto, Nuevo Mexico.

    what a difference the location of a comma can make.
    Okay that’s all I got.

  16. Both progressives and feminists have their roots in the teachings of Karl Marx.

    This explains their silence about the way the sub-human Islamic culture treats women and children.

    And they are conveniently ignorant of what their precious Muslims want to to do their second most precious special privileges group.

  17. Without cultural appropriation, people of color would be wearing grass skirts and loin cloths.

  18. [Warning: heavy sarcasm]

    Like the licenses needed in some local jurisdictions to do “african” style braids (can’t remember if it was dreadlocks or c*rn rows) America could adopt standards for authennic tortillas, with federalized enforcement agents wearing actual badges made from 100% grade A Mexican Tortillas in support of downpressed cultures.

    Suspect proprieters not kowtowing to rules for new tortilla guidelines can be fined or imprisoned if found in violation. Of course imposter SJW types may pop up from time to time wanting to inspect the mobile vendors batches of torts and tacos. The savvy business owners will demand some proof of ID of course. And if said “Federales” says “We dont need no badges…. I don’t have to show you any stinking badges!” Then that vendor will most likely say: “Good, then I dont have to show you any stinking batches! [of tortillas].

    Aaaand, on a more serious note- Free Tibet!
