For our next example of liberal lunacy, leftists are now saying that the Cracker Barrel restaurant name is raaaaacist.
If everything is racist, nothing is racist.
Regardless, now the leftists are coming after Cracker Barrel.
The attack on the national restaurant chain seen most often near highway exits was drummed up by racebaiter April Reign on her overheated twitter account.
Reign, who is most well-known for starting the race-based “OscarsSoWhite” attack on Hollywood’s long-time awards show, idiotically claimed that when you open the door of a Cracker Barrel restaurant “you get a whiff of Jim Crow. And biscuits.”
Open the door to a Cracker Barrel and you get a whiff of Jim Crow. And biscuits. https://t.co/XhyBfZ5cwl

This is a truly stupid proclamation. Cracker Barrel is an Appalachian-themed restaurant chain, not a deep south concept. Indeed, in the areas the chain first formed — such as hometown Lebanon, Tennessee, and into West Virginia — many citizens were pro-union during the Civil War.
These people really are cretins, aren’t they?
The chain recently noted that it is “inclusive.”
We work hard every day to foster a culture that is welcoming and inclusive. Please see our full statement below. pic.twitter.com/1bpsJ0YmCn

The original version of this story said that Kraft Foods owned the Cracker Barrel restaurant chain. This, though, is not true. Cracker Barrel is a publicly traded company still operated by the chain’s founding organization.
