Papa John’s Pizza’s founder John Schnatter was forced to resign as Chairman of the company he created over a manufactured controversy by the liberal media that was waged to malign the conservative restaurateur.
Score another one for the jackals of the digital witch hunt, as Schnatter now faces public disgrace. Schnatter was forced to resign as Chairman because of words that he said during a conference call that were taken out of context for the purposes of giving the leftist mob their “three minutes hate” of the week.
“News reports attributing the use of inappropriate and hurtful language to me during a media-training session regarding race are true,” Schnatter said in a public statement released Wednesday by the organization.
“Regardless of the context, I apologize. Simply stated, racism has no place in our society,” he said.
The apology wasn’t enough to satiate the mob. Schnatter was forced to resign as the front man of his own company, and pressure continues to mount on him to sell off all of his stock in the company that he was responsible for creating. This is how men who create value are treated in what was formerly the land of the free.
The controversy stems from a conference call that took place between Papa John’s executives and a marketing company, Laundry Service. This took place ironically to prevent future public relations snafus but backfired completely. During the conference call, Schnatter talked candidly. He said, “Colonel Sanders called blacks n*ggers” while talking about how commerce has changed throughout the years. This is a fact that Schnatter referenced, but nevertheless, context is not a concept that the mob cares about or even understands.
After he was forced to apologize, the jackals smelled blood and went in for the kill. Papa Johns’ stock has dropped considerably since the faux outrage, hitting a 52-week-low following the news. Now that the marketplace can be held hostage by a soulless cult of social justice warriors, the free market no longer exists. No free individual is safe from the leftist terror mob as they enforce thought control for Big Brother and continue their war against freedom of expression.
