I’m Up for a Bit of Cultural Appropriation Today, After I Get Done With My Islamophobic Backlash. Who’s Game?

Portland, Oregon

Concomitant to that, I suddenly have a taste for Portland-style burritos.

Seriously, about that, here’s my hot take, which I doubt I’ll have to change:

I think the real heat source behind this controversy isn’t anyone worrying about anyone else’s culture being appropriated, it’s the fact that the open borders fanatics think that these young ladies in Portland are pissing all over their Cheerios.

Here’s what I mean:

One of the prime benefits that open borders diversitarians claim is a consequence of all that diversity that open borders brings is:

ZOMG ALL THE RESTAURANTS~!!!!!1

Now, in a normal, sane world, people interested in the culinary arts travel around the world, learn recipes and methods, and then bring them home.  Several years ago, I read a story about the best Mexican chef in Japan being Japanese or the best Japanese chef in Mexico being Mexican, can’t remember which.

But in our bassackwards world, transnational migration of recipes isn’t that easy.  No, if you want recipes and preparation methods from a given country, then you have to open your immigration system to any and every one from that country who wants to migrate to your country.

So, there you have the real reason why we’re all supposed to hate Liz and Kali — Because they at least on one front exposed the non-necessity of mass immigration.

All the chefs at Benihana’s have been beaners, for the last several years. I could understand hiding them away in the kitchen (and getting away with it), but the spatula samurais at the tables are now Julios, Joses, or Juans, not Japaneses. Makes me wonder if they have as many “black knights” at Medieval Times as there are in the movies.
There’s also a fish taco chain out here called Rubio’s, where if the line is long enough, you can read the company’s birth statement on the wall, about how Ricky Rubio (or whoever) drove his beat-up VW to Baja Calexico in the 70s, fell in love with the fish tacos down there, got the recipe from Juan Valdez, and the rest as they say is history.
Maybe it’s time for a remake of Demolition Man, with some underground SJWs protesting Taco Bell for stealing recipes, and then corporate security hunting every last one of them down like chihuahuas in the street, and packing their guts into pinatas that they “give back” to the undeserved kids in the community.

Plus the eatery was named Kooks Burritos. That would make Liz and Kali the last two remaining kooks in Portland. Back in the ’70s when I was a kid in Portland, there were thousands of them. (“Kook” was local slang for a conservative eccentric ranging from nerd to crank, the flipside of “loon” who was a bohemian eccentric.)

In this case I imagine they pronounce it “cook”, and it’s a whimsical misspelling.
