Latest Cancel Culture Target Will Blow Your Mind!
To hell with the Cancel Culture!
Now I don’t mean the people, I don’t wish anyone to hell, but the mentality of canceling everything under the sun that has any sort of link to anything bad in the past thousand years has got to go.
I really do think that if people and the media would stop giving these idiots the time of day and a platform to to express their stupidity, this would all go away.
I have really started to wonder if there isn’t a group of people somewhere to get together once a week and try to come up with the most ridiculous thing to target as part of the Cancel Culture.
This time, would you believe that they’re targeting apple pie?
Not apple pie from any particular company or anything like that. I mean apple pie.
Food writer and activist Raj Patel wrote an article for the Guardian titled: “Food injustice has deep roots: let’s start with America’s apple pie.” Patel claims that apple pie is rooted in colonialism and slavery. He must be fun at dinner parties.
“In the drama of nationalist culture, the bloody and international origins of the apple pie are subject to a collective amnesia,” Patel wrote. “The apple pie is as American as stolen land, wealth, and labor. We live its consequences today.”
Patel then emphasizes that the apple pie and many of its ingredients are not from America, which is true. There were only small, wild crabapples native to North America until apples (Malus domestica) were brought from England to the Jamestown settlement in 1607. Preceding that, the original wild species of apples (Malus sieversii) was originally from Central Asia, in areas such as modern-day Kazakhstan and China, and introduced to Europe through the Silk Road trade routes. “Several societies were consuming apples in present-day Greece and Italy since 2000 BCE,” according to the World Atlas.
Patel claimed, “Apples traveled to the western hemisphere with Spanish colonists in the 1500s in what used to be called the Columbian Exchange, but is now better understood as a vast and ongoing genocide of indigenous people.”
Are these morons really prepared to go down this road? Are they really prepared to only eat foods that are indigenous to our country? I HIGHLY doubt it. Are they willing to get rid of the iPhones that children made in China in some sweatshop? I don’t think so.
Plus, I can guarantee you that the next thing that would happen is that they would cancel indigenous food because they were taken away from the Native Americans. Then what do we have left to eat? S**t…that’s what.
