Not a parody.

I never heard of these people till today and I have to thank Scrappycrow for sharing this bout of idiocy. To say the owner has a serious mental issue via TDS would be underselling it. Here is the whole email.

Some excerpts:

Remember after George Floyd’s murder the anger and righteous outrage that swept across America? Remember how Black Lives Matter stepped in and redirected that anger into peaceful protests that millions of Americans from across all walks of life participated in, amassing a hundred million human-hours of peaceful protest?

 

 

 

Remember how Republicans, going against a mountain of evidence to the contrary, once again lied and said BLM wasn’t a peaceful movement but instead terrorists inciting violence throughout the country and then raced out to buy a crapload of guns because maybe they were finally going to get their chance to shoot a Black person? What a bunch of racists.

If you’re a part of a party that does everything it can to make it harder for Black people to vote, gerrymanders the value of minority votes down into a small fraction of the value of white votes in state houses and in the US House of Representatives, and are willing to vote for candidates of the party that nominated a man for president who explained why he was launching his campaign by saying: “Mexicans are rapists and murderers,” the Racist label is one you will deservingly wear every day you stand with them. Get used to it, or maybe instead, become a better person. The choice is yours. We will be here rooting for you to Choose Love.

I do believe this person would love to see us dead. This much derangement and hate will lead to somebody’s early demise, and I am hoping it is the owner’s via a stroke or a heart attack. Unchristian of me? Fuck yes, but I am not giving chance or quarters to a crazy asshole like that who twisted the truth in such a fashion it will make it “morally” right to have us erased.

PS: Apparently the sister had enough of the crazy shit and opened her own spice company devoid of politics.

  1. If you dont agree with me on everything than you ate racist- said the hate filled vicious democrat. The over played race card is all they have left

  2. Yeah — this guy’s been marketing to the woke for years. Who cares? Shop with his sister, find a local alternative, or Florida Tea and Spice Exchange. 🙂

  3. The stores were nice when I lived in an area that had them. And we have mail ordered from them on occasion since we moved. Given where they’re based this likely won’t hurt them from losing customers, but the giving product away is another question.

    But yes … quite clear the owner doesn’t want the Boris household’s business. We’ll need to check out the sister’s store.

  4. Not to be toooo cynical, maybe they planned this? He puts out a super woke ad. He gets all the TDS people to go “YES!” and buy some of his products.

    His sister then opens a “competing” store that sells the same spices with different labels for the rest of us.

    I wouldn’t buy from either of them.

    For background, my lady wrote a cookbook about cooking for re-enacting. She uses a bunch of weird spices, the type you don’t buy at your local super market.

    She was asked to do a demo and book signing at a local store that sells spices. Since they knew what she was going to be cooking they ordered those spices so that people could buy those spices from them.

    At the end of the demo, the owner of the store came out and gave my lady the remainder of the 10# bag of spice they had purchased for the event. They had repackaged the spice into little 1/2oz bottles (all that was really needed). They kept a couple of pounds or so of the bulk and handed my lady 4 or 5 lbs of this spice. Yeah, pounds.

    When they buy in bulk and repackage their markup is around 200% over the cost of the spices.

    It would not surprise me in the least that the brother and sister run the store, bought spices in bulk (10# or larger). They buy the spice bottles in bulk. The only thing that changes is the labels. I know of companies that can turn around a label order of a couple of 1000 labels in less than 24 hours.

    This screams scam to me.

    1. Penzey’s is an old, established company. The sister separated from the business years ago (I think maybe with the father?) to start a new company when the political division began to affect the business. I don’t think it’s a scam. It’s just someone drunk on woke who would rather alienate people than concentrate on providing a good product… and enough woke people appreciate them to keep it going. This has been going on for years. I agree with Rob Crawford. Take your money elsewhere and ignore the shrieking loonies.

    2. The split happened several years ago. There seemed to be much bitterness. IIRC, she was a Trump supporter and, well, you can see what a looney tune he is. They were not on speaking terms.

  5. Penzey’s used to be my favorite source for spices, both mail order and a nearby store. Then Trump was elected and the owner said if you voted for Trump he didn’t want your business. I immediately took him at his word. The Spice House folks are great and while their selection of spices is not as good a Penzey’s, they have more than enough. As I remember the story, the kids went their separate ways when the father (and founder) passed away. Since I haven’t bought from Penzey’s in over 4 years, I didn’t realize his TDS has metastasized to this extent. But if he is giving away free spices, I just may take advantage of him for spite.

  6. Not a scam at all; Bill Jr. started going off the deep end years ago. It’s a shame as Penzey’s does offer really excellent products. Before Bill Jr. started really losing it, my spice drawer was easily 90% Penzey’s products.

    The Spice House was the original business the Penzey family had started, but was sold by the daughter a few years ago. Their products are excellent as well and currently fill most of my spice drawer.

  7. Call me a cheapskate but I get my spices from Badia, in the Mexican aisle at the supermarket, except for basil and Adobo.

  8. I liked Penzey’s until, oh, 2012-13 or so. His catalogue started going farther and farther left, and I could see that he wasn’t going to drift back. Then 2016 came along, and I switched to The Spice House, and a few other places. I’m sorry (for the sake of his employees) that he’s gone off the deep end.

  9. Thank you to all the commenters for the information and to you Miguel for the link to The Spice House. The local Penzeys was my go to place for quality cooking spices but I had no idea of their wokery or apparent wish for no more of my dollars. The local one here has gone no contact curbside pick up only since around early 2020 with no signs of allowing customers back in wonder how long they’ll be able to keep that up.

    The plus side is their covid-fear has lead me to finding and exploring some awesome little Indian, Asian, and Mexican cantina stores that sell from the homeland spices for a fraction of what a lil jar would have cost at Penzeys.

    P.S. Just checked and Spice House has Berbere heck yeah!
