Did You Know You Can Buy Delicious Barilla Pasta via Our Amazon Links?

Posted on | September 26, 2013 | 62 Comments

Barilla Mezze Penne, Barilla Farfalle, Barilla Tri-Color Rotini — yes, Amazon offers a wide variety of delicious Barilla pasta. Honestly, I don’t know why the subject came up, but Guido Barilla was on a radio program and explained why his company doesn’t use gay couples in their ads: “Ours is a classic family where the woman plays a fundamental role.” So now Ace of Spades reports there is a boycott campaign:

Yes, not clapping hard enough for the sexual choices of gays constitutes “homophobia” now. “Intolerance” now means “an uncivilized lack of moist enthusiasm.” . . .
I always dreamed of a world in which I was Free to be rentlessly henpecked, anklebitten, bullied & boycotted by well-funded leftist groups paid to harass citizens every waking moment of every single day. . . .
The gay lobby wants Barilla (and all other corporations) to affirmatively campaign for their political agenda. Ergo, Barilla’s statement that they won’t be doing that is now defined as “homophobia.”

Look, I know Ace. He’s not a homophobe. But like a lot of other non-homophobic people in the Obama Age, he’s sick and tired of being constantly lectured about how awfully oppressed gay people are, as if heterosexuals don’t have problems of their own to worry about, as if we’re all supposed to stop whatever we’re doing and jump in line to be outraged by whatever the Gay Lobby wants us to be outraged about, which seems to be damned near everything nowadays.

So, everybody buy some Barilla pasta, because hate is delicious.



UPDATE: The holidays are coming, so might as well stock up!

And how could I forget to mention delicious Barilla sauce?

    Not so fast, Your Marsupialness…

    I assert that liberals demand that others subsidise them, and any “approval” is only implied thereby!
