Commentator Calls for ‘Pizza Hut Nationalism’ and a Return to the Iconic, Enjoyable Past
We’re almost halfway through the second year of what will go down as one of the worst presidencies in American history. Inflation is up, crime is up, and our president is a doddering, dimwitted geriatric. It might be enough to have you nostalgically wishing for days gone by. Jack Posobiec took to Twitter to embody this sentiment in what might be one of the most relatable examples ever.

Tried to take my kids to a classic @PizzaHut near DC last night and it was a wasteland. Guess they don't do dine-in anymore. Unmade boxes over all the tables, dirty, delivery drivers hanging out. Grew up with BookIt personal pans, red cups, and arcade games. It's all gone now.— Jack Posobiec \ud83c\uddfa\ud83c\uddf8 (@Jack Posobiec \ud83c\uddfa\ud83c\uddf8) 1652043704
There are plenty of examples of America’s fall, but anyone who has been to a modern Pizza Hut knows exactly what Posobiec is talking about. It just isn’t the same, is it?
Posobiec continued to rail against Pizza Huts devolution, calling for “Pizza Hut Nationalism.”

No doubt, modern architecture is bland, boring, and downright brutish. Those few old Pizza Hut buildings dotting the American landscape in small towns around the country are more than likely dilapidated reminders of something we’ve lost and won’t be able to share with our children.
Or that’s the general attitude of Wokal Distance on Twitter, who took the time to analyze Posobiec’s rantings and makes a rather solid point, and it’s worth quoting at length. (NOTE: The Twitter thread was rife with typos, and I’ve taken the liberty of correcting them. I’m not going to [sic] each of them out of respect for the writer, but the original thread is here.)
“In the ‘90s common elements of middle-class suburban life and culture (like Pizza Hut) were seen (by 'sophisticated' tastemakers) to be empty consumerist kitsch to be enjoyed by unsophisticated rubes. […] What is happening now is that the kids who enjoyed that life and unironically liked those things--middle-class houses and decor, restaurants like Applebee’s and Pizza Hut, accessible mass media--Have grown up and are saying, ‘The cultural products I grew up with may have been mass-produced, kitschy, simple, not cool, and lacking in sophistication... but they were fun, wholesome, affordable and were part of a life that was stable and hopeful.’ They view those things with nostalgia because they were part of a time when the world was stable, and a middle-class life experience that could be replicated across the country and shared... even if that culture is N64, Pizza Hut, and renting from Blockbuster on Friday night.
"That life was wholesome, fun, and allowed for a sort of innocence. This no longer exists. All the current Nickelodeon shows, Disney movies, and mass-produced media are infused with radical politics. There are no neutral, shared spaces. There is no childhood innocence. All of this is gone, and the childhood we had we cannot give to our children because the world we were raised to survive in no longer exists. We reject the counter-culture cynicism that says the mass-produced culture that marked the middle class is empty and useless. No. That culture allowed for shared experience and cultural touchstones from a time when prosperity was possible, and the world was stable.”
Jack Posobiec has a solution, though! Elon Musk can save Pizza Hut!
. @ElonMusk buy Pizza Hut and restore it to its former glorypic.twitter.com/4Xq0zsdRt1— Jack Posobiec \ud83c\uddfa\ud83c\uddf8 (@Jack Posobiec \ud83c\uddfa\ud83c\uddf8) 1652071321
When we restore Pizza Hut this is first toy set on the kids menu and also it's playing nonstop on the TV screenspic.twitter.com/0iFOLKCk7X— Jack Posobiec \ud83c\uddfa\ud83c\uddf8 (@Jack Posobiec \ud83c\uddfa\ud83c\uddf8) 1652071933
It won’t happen. I think many of us who were able to enjoy this kind of culture growing up have come to terms with what the world has become. All we can do now is try to make our children’s lives as good as they can be in a world overrun by politics and all the insanity woven into it.
And in the meantime, enjoy this old Pizza Hut commercial.
