When the owner of a Dairy Queen has to defend his choice to say that he supports “God and country”, you know we’ve progressed into #ClownUniverse.
A Wisconsin Dairy Queen owner is defending a sign describing his restaurant as “politically incorrect” for its unabashed support for “God and country.”
The sign at the franchise in Kewaskum notifies patrons that staff may say “Merry Christmas,” ”Happy Easter” and “God Bless America,” among other things.
Owner Kevin Scheunemann tells WDJT-TV he “felt the sign was appropriate to hang in terms of being transparent about the views of the owner and staff supporting God and country.”
One customer who apparently doesn’t agree took a picture of the sign and complained about it on Dairy Queen’s page on Facebook.
The chain tells the station the sign “expresses the views of this independent owner only” and doesn’t speak for the company or any other franchise owners.
This on the same day that Portland Oregon’s police department decided to get rid of their list of gang members because it might incite racial hatred given that it was mostly composed of minorities.
Portland police will no longer maintain a database of suspected gang members, due to concerns that the vast majority of people with the gang label are racial minorities.
Starting Oct. 15, the Portland Police Bureau will end the 20-year practice of issuing gang member designations, which police say can lead to “unintended consequences” and a lifelong stigma even for those who have given up the gang lifestyle. Officials intend to notify the approximately 300 people on the gang list that the bureau will purge all records related to the designations, The Oregonian reported.
“There are still criminal gang members. That doesn’t go away because we don’t have a gang designation,” said Capt. Mike Krantz, according to The Oregonian. “We’re not pretending gang violence doesn’t exist. We’re just taking this one thing away.”
I guess the gangs just weren’t white enough for them to think it was a matter of concern. It might also verify racial “stereotypes” that we now have scientific evidence for. Oops.
But Dairy Queen owners who support their god and their country are clearly out of line.
The saying “facts are racist” just doesn’t cut it.
#ClownUniverse is the only way to describe it.
