Cold Fury

Harshing your mellow since 9/01

As I was saying…

Somebody finally noticed the very thing I was pointing and laughing at during the Oberlin College “inauthentic food” ATROCITY.

It might be a misnomer, then, to refer to SJWs as “progressive.” They don’t really want culture to progress at all. They have an idea of a world where culture never crosses borders or changes with each person who adopts it. While the cafeteria might not make the most appetizing variations, there are many fusion restaurants and immigrant-owned restaurants that do. In fact, almost everything we eat today includes ingredients or cooking styles derived from a place of foreign origin.

Consider the following examples.

General Tso’s Chicken: Like much American Chinese food, it was created or modified by immigrants to suit American tastes.

Banh Mi: Influenced by French colonialism.

Sushi: The kind of sushi on sale in most restaurants in America is much different from the kind of sushi that was long ago introduced to Japan from Southeast Asia. American sushi is typically bolder, sweeter, and contains more ingredients than the Japanese variety. Japan even “stole” sushi from elsewhere. According to Tori Avey, writing for PBS, “The concept of sushi [of using rice to preserve fish] was likely introduced to Japan in the ninth century.”

Popular American rolls like the California roll and Philadelphia roll, which both use avocado, are said to have been invented by Japanese immigrants to North America in the 1960s and ’70s. Oh, and avocado originated from the Aztecs.

Hamburgers: The Hamburg steak, comes from—where else?—Hamburg, Germany, Avey wrote in Parade: “Beef from German Hamburg cows was minced and combined with garlic, onions, salt and pepper, [which itself came to Europe from India on ancient trade routes, this author adds] then formed into patties (without bread or a bun) to make Hamburg steaks.” During the Industrial Revolution, American street vendors began serving it on buns for workers to eat quickly.

The beef came from Europe and India. (Christopher Columbus was the first person to bring cattle to America.) The lettuce originated in Europe, onions in Asia, cucumbers (pickled to make pickles) in India, and tomatoes and potatoes in South America. There are newish fusion styles of burgers, too, including ones with avocado, kimchi, and peanut butter. One fast-food restaurant in Taiwan serves burgers with buns made of rice.

All food is “appropriated” from somewhere. If you want to be politically correct by segregating yourself just to that of your own culture, your only option is to starve to death.

Hey, I’m okay with that. Get to it, crybullies. The quicker the better; we’ve been waiting around all this time for you to choke to death on your own stupidity, but apparently that’s too thin and watery a gruel to really do the job properly.

  1. There’s a lot to be said for Virginia Postrel’s convention of dividing us politically into “dynamists” and “stasists”.

    Most of the Left is quite stasist, except that they want enough change for them to rule over the rest of us. Then they want to clamp things down so no one else can ever take their place. In extreme form, this is “one man, one vote, one time”.

    These idiot students are implicitly accepting a high value in stasis. They’re far too stupid and ignorant to realize that everything they take for granted in their lives, all that wonderful technology including the very means they use to organize their stupid protests, is the process of a dynamic culture and economy. Almost all innovation results from combining old things in new ways, but these young twits think there’s something wrong with that in creating food dishes. Even though it doesn’t hurt anybody, and benefits lots of people.
