Cold Fury

Harshing your mellow since 9/01

No sacrifice too great!

Hard Easy pass.

I had a great dinner at a local Red Lobster the other night. The crab cakes were excellent, the staff and service friendly and terrific.

But alas that was my last meal at the Red Lobster.

The Red Lobster, which I thought was in the business of selling seafood dinners and lunches, is in another business altogether: leftwing politics.

The company, owned by an outfit in San Francisco called Golden Gate Capital, is run by a slew of Hillary Clinton supporters who have decided to follow a prompting from an ex-Clinton staffer and make censorship their main product, joining the anti-free press jihad that has made it their business to silence conservatives in the media. The latest example is the targeting of Fox’s Tucker Carlson, with the Red Lobster officiously and piously announcing the following:

Red Lobster’s advertising buying guidelines reflect our core values and commitment to supporting programming that represents the highest standards of good taste, fair practice and objectivity.

Unmentioned in the announcement from Red Lobster was this, per a report in the Washington Times:

Activists like ThinkProgress founder Judd Legum renewed the boycott, specifically calling on Red Lobster to pull its ads.

Ahhh, but of course. Once again the extreme far-Left is on yet another anti-free press and free speech jihad, this time bullying Red Lobster.

Then again, maybe it isn’t bullying after all. In plunging into politics by joining the side of the leftwing thugs, a closer look at those running Red Lobster reveals that there is, in fact, a built in leftward bias at the very top of the company that owns Red Lobster — Golden Gate Capital.

Giving up Red Lobster will be the easiest protest-slash-boycott “divestment” I ever made: I can’t stand the place, their food is terrible. I used to eat there regularly years and years ago, when I was a kid and my palate was a lot less, umm, refined. Maybe they’ve improved since then; I don’t know and don’t care. But as far as I’m concerned, they had nowhere to go but up. And wherever they’re going, they’ll be going without me…which I’m sure suits the both of us just fine, thqnks.

  1. Very rarely eat at the crusty crab. Used to be decent food at a decent price. The prices became obscene as the portion sizes shrunk (no inflation here!). We eat better tasting and cheaper seafood bought at the grocery store and cooked at home.
