Yesterday Twitchy reported that the unhinged Left was targeting Applebee’s because one monstrous franchisee may implement a hiring freeze to deal with the financial realities of Obamacare. Today, the target is Papa John’s CEO John Schnatter.
Schnatter was hammered with Twitter abuse in August after he told shareholders he would raise prices to offset the cost of Obamacare. Now, he expects franchise owners will reduce employees’ hours rather than provide costly, mandated insurance coverage to people working 30 hours per week.
“That’s probably what’s going to happen,” he said. “It’s common sense. That’s what I call lose-lose.”
In response to Schnatter’s candid assessment of his company’s future, Twitter liberals – in their predictably moronic and clueless fashion – called for a “boycott” of Papa John’s pizza (see the tweets at the Twitchy link). Because to them, Schnatter lives in a nice home and is “rich” so he can afford to pay for ObamaCare and should ABSORB the higher costs associated with it, damn it.
So let me break this down for you: One more company in a long list of companies having to cut back on hours and/or employees in light of ObamaCare and the disastrous results of this election should be boycotted … which, if effective, would mean even MORE hours would be cut, jobs lost, hiring freezes put in place, people on the unemployment rolls, higher unemployment rates, etc.
What a stupid, naive mindset. It’s class warfare at its most dangerous, a tactic mastered by ignorant liberal Democrats who despise companies that are successful – unless they are contributing to the DNC machine, that is.
And we’re supposed to try and “appeal” to these people???
