The white supremacist ‘Daily Stormer’ wants to make Papa John’s the official pizza of the alt-right

Published

Leave it up to white supremacist trolls to turn the political musings of a mass-market pizza chief into their next statement.

As per the Huffington Post, a columnist at the neo-Nazi Daily Stormer praised Papa John’s founder John Schlatter’s criticisms of the NFL that the pizza czar claimed drove his profits down.

“This is great,” the Stormer’s Adrian Sol wrote. “This might be the first time ever in modern history that a major institution is going to be completely destroyed explicitly because of public outrage over their anti-White agenda.”

“Papa John [sic]: Official pizza of the alt-right?” the writer continued.

As HuffPost notes, this is far from the first time the neo-Nazis at the Stormer have declared alt-right brand affinity. Last year, after New Balance’s vice president of public affairs expressed optimism about Donald Trump’s anti-Trans Pacific Partnership proposal, the site claimed they were going to make the company “the official shoes of white people.” And in January of 2017, the site’s owner Andrew Anglin declared Wendy’s “the official burger of the Neo-Nazi Alt-Right movement” after some employees posted a pigtailed Pepe on Twitter.

According to Molly Beck of the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel, Republicans in the legislature have slipped a provision into the state's relief bill authorizing unemployment disbursement under the federal CARES Act, that would allow the state's Finance Committee to make budget cuts without input from Evers — stripping him of power at exactly the moment when the public would be looking to the governor for help.

Published

on

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention on Tuesday quietly removed bizarre guidelines for using the malaria drug hydroxychloroquine as a potential treatment for the new coronavirus. The unproven treatment has been repeatedly hyped by President Donald Trump in spite of the warnings of Dr. Anthony Fauci.

The CDC published "highly unusual" dosing guidance based on "unattributed anecdotes rather than peer-reviewed science" last month amid pressure on federal health officials from Trump, Reuters reported. The agency now appears to have quietly removed those guidelines from its website this week.
