Burger King Seemingly Endorses People Throwing Milkshakes at British Politicians
Yes, I know it's "over there" but there's been a rash of milkshake tossing on right-leaning British politicos, including Nigel Farage, Tommy Robinson and Sargon of Akkad. All three of whom have been guests on our show. By the way, throwing something at someone isn't a form of peaceful protest. Once you throw a thing at another person, regardless of what that thing is or the political leanings of the throwing, you've committed some kind of act. In America, if you throw something at someone, you may have committed assault. Bear that in mind when you see Burger King's tweet to the people of Scotland:
You tell me: if politicos are having milkshakes thrown at them, and a fast food chain tweets "Hey, by the way, we have milkshakes so have fun" doesn't that kind of sort of sound like endorsing throwing milkshakes at politicos?
Am I using the word "politicos" correctly?
Also, how long before the attacks escalate from milkshakes to, say, something a little more damaging? Like acid. Related: Britain Doomed? FIVE Acid Attacks Took Place in London in Just 90 Minutes.
Excuse the blatant whataboutism, but if Theresa May had been doused with dairy, and Burger King tweeted what they tweeted, what would the reaction have been? If Megan Markle had been showered with shakes, would Burger King have tweeted what they tweeted? Or would Burger King have strongly condemned the actions of the hateful shake shooters against the American turned British princess?
Of course not. Because attacks against people who lean right, even if those attacks include liquified ice cream, those are fine. But attacks of any kind, even non-attacks like critical words, against anyone who leans left is "literal violence" deserving of all the outrage.
