    Why do alt-righters feel the need to wear motorcycle helmets, conceal their identity and wear military webbing when exercising their freedom of speech? Do they fear what they say? Weak.

    That doesnt fit the narrative that white people are under attack!!!

    Just another example of the free market... i've never seen a good burrito place close its doors, but I've seen ones that suck close down

    Is it bad that I'm proud to be a white male? Feel like that's a bad thing.

    That's a terrible attempt at a joke. I see you had time to post this, but haven't responded to anyone on why being a white male makes you proud? Please explain. The only thing that implies is that you know there is white privilege among the races and inequality among genders so you are glad you hit the birth jackpot. It'd be nice to hear otherwise :)
    It's a hopeless situation...

    Where's the "Proud to be an American" anthem when you need it? Wasn't that Turd Blossom's anthem back in the day?

    Yeah, well I would definitely call those who thought it was cultural appropriation total idiots. I think that is fucking outrageous, and it is very disappointing to me that anyone would go that far "PC", but I know I have to stop being so shocked that some people are so fucking stupid as that. It's just insanity. But I agree with you about this "forced to close" thing. Sounds like the owners more wussed out. They definitely weren't actually forced to close. They shouldn't have, and you're right, it would have blown over quickly.
    With all its sham, drudgery, and broken dreams, it is still a beautiful world. Be careful. Strive to be happy. ~ Desiderata

    $20 says if they made good burritos in a good location at a good price they wouldn't have closed... Period

    Maybe I missed it, but I didn't see anything from anyone about being offended. Several of us asked what that meant, but it's ok, you were just testing the waters for the fun of it. It was a simple question that you have chosen to avoid.

    Nope, my bad. I missed typed my initial thought and thought I'd delete it but then said, ahh hell, why? Senior moment on my part with all due apologies to the OP as he seems to be the least offended. Personally, it takes a lot more than a burrito joint closing for me to be offended.

    You sure showed us.
    People got offended because I said I was proud to be white. It's kinda funny. 
    Who's offended? Seems the OP is the most offended of all. By many things apparently.
    Maybe I missed it, but I didn't see anything from anyone about being offended. Several of us asked what that meant, but it's ok, you were just testing the waters for the fun of it. It was a simple question that you have chosen to avoid. 
    Nope, my bad. I missed typed my initial thought and thought I'd delete it but then said, ahh hell, why? Senior moment on my part with all due apologies to the OP as he seems to be the least offended. Personally, it takes a lot more than a burrito joint closing for me to be offended.

    You know, I thought that might happen after I posted. My comment was directed at Riley, but I guess it was ambiguous enough for multiple applications :)
    It's a hopeless situation...

    That's the norm.  Those who dedicate the most time to screaming "PC!" are usually just as easily-offended, just by different stuff that doesn't count for some reason.
