A French restaurant says it received insults and threats from customers who thought its signature Quebecois dish poutine was named after Putin



A restaurant in France seeks to clear its name after fielding confusion surrounding poutine, its signature dish — fries doused with cheese curds and gravy — and Russian President Vladimir Putin, the leader who announced an invasion into Ukraine just over a week ago.

Well, both are Turanian.....

Our enemies complain about broken-down ice cream machines:

https://counter-currents.com/2022/04/ice-cream-machines-societal-disintegration/

Quote
Let’s talk ice cream machines. They’re a minor aspect of your daily life that you might not even notice much. Chick-fil-a, Shake Shack, McDonald’s, Wendy’s, In-N-Out, Steak ‘n Shake, Dairy Queen, Rally’s — they all have them. Your local family-owned and regional chain restaurants have them as well. They are everywhere, and I contend we can look at the ice cream machine as a miniature social-capital and livability data-outpost because of their ubiquity. We can get to know a particular store or area of town by its ice cream machine functionality level.

Unlike a grill, fryer, or freezer, there are many more moving parts in an ice cream machine. They also have more arduous cleaning routines that involve removing a handful of parts. Cleaning a grill, by contrast, requires no parts to be removed, cleaned, and replaced. In an ice cream machine, the mixers and several pans must be removed and cleaned, and sanitizing solutions and water must be run through the system.

I do not need to go into which civilization is responsible for this unnecessary complexity.

Quote
When you order ice cream, you don’t want to hear “We’re out” or “It’s broken,” yet it has been happening so often across the United States in recent years that it became somewhat of a cultural meme that spawned considerable media interest. Reports indicate that up to a quarter of McDonald’s ice cream machines are not operational at any given time.

As far as I am concerned, the more broken ice cream machines, the less ice cream is being sold, thus the less violence initiated against cows.

Quote
There are occasions when employees put the wrong mix into the machine, causing it to stop working until it is cleaned out and replaced with the correct mix. Few people at their store know how the pasteurization cycle works overnight, leading to some confusion about its operational status, and even fewer know how to clean the machine. In short, operator error is the culprit.
...
Vice News reported that when a cross-analysis was performed utilizing an API tracker of broken McDonald’s ice cream machines along with a demographic analysis of the neighborhoods where they are located, they find a statistical overrepresentation of broken machines in black, Latinx, and low-income communities.[7] In non-white communities, the machines are not functional in some places at a rate of double or more the national average, and at least three times the rate of white communities.

So which would the cows prefer?

Quote
non-whites whose mere existence among us is a form of terrorism that leads to the total deterioration of every aspect of society.

No, "whites'" mere existence among us is a form of terrorism that leads to the sustainable evil of milk factories:

There will come a time when the people who cannot run the ice cream machine are running things of a much greater importance.

What happens when the worker who decided it “wasn’t his job” to clean the ice cream machine feels the same way about inspecting the brakes on your car?

Cars should never have existed either.

What happens when you very much need something to be done correctly, but everybody at the department in charge of whatever you need are those people who could barely keep an ice cream machine running for a full day?

At least then we won't have to worry about stopping space travel because it would not be happening in the first place.

The people who would want to keep ice cream machines running, on the other hand, are the same people who do stuff like this:

https://trueleft.createaforum.com/true-left-vs-right/if-western-civilization-does-not-die-soon/

These are the people we really have to worry about! (Or, if we want to stop worrying, we have to eliminate their bloodlines.)

Quote
Part of my concern with importing so many denizens of the Global South is that they are accustomed to and seem to accept — even embrace — conditions we would find intolerable. Not only will they lower the standard of living by their very existence, but they also won’t mind all that much.

That is precisely why I want to import them.

Quote
Black and Latinx communities do not have higher levels of “broken” ice cream machines because the machines are racist. It’s because the staff in those restaurants are black and Latinx. The employees in such places are either too lazy, too uninterested, or too unintelligent to keep the ice cream machine up and running, which is truthfully a more complicated piece of equipment than anything else in the restaurant — perhaps a bit too complicated or too much work for the minds of diversity-Americans.

And that is what makes them true Americans, as opposed to Western occupiers who need to be prohibited from reproducing. (I hardly need to explain that no ice cream machines existed in pre-colonial America.)

Quote
In other restaurants I have personally observed an employee being told to clean the machine after the manager has left for the day, resulting in the employee being unable to put the machine back together after taking it apart for cleaning.

This is the kind of bloodline we need to predominate demographically if we are to defeat:

https://trueleft.createaforum.com/true-left-vs-false-left/progressive-yahwism/

Continuing:

Quote
If you’re looking for a house and want to know if it’s a “good neighborhood,” go to the local fast-food places and see if the ice cream machine is working or not and who is staffing the restaurants. If they can’t keep the ice cream machine running, they won’t be able to keep the schools nice or the property values up, either. It’s an early tell-tale sign of decay.

Compulsory schooling should never have existed either (and indeed did not exist in non-Western civilizations).

Quote
I hope that one day, all the ice cream machines in your town are fully functional and operated by people who look like you. If that happens, you’ll know you made it. This might not seem like much to you right now, but one day you’ll understand how much it truly means.

Fusion restaurants are fine so long as the fusion is non-Eurocentric:

https://us.yahoo.com/news/somerville-vegetarian-taqueria-fusing-indian-090041288.html

Quote
New Somerville vegetarian taqueria is fusing Indian and Mexican cuisine
...
Tacowala, located at the former home of Don's Famous Hoagie Shoppe at 133. E Main St., opened April 2 with a menu highlighted by vegetarian and vegan street tacos.
...
“And there are a lot of similarities in ingredients in Mexico and India due to historic trading.”

Those ingredients include chilis, tamarind, and other strong spices and flavors. Rice and beans are staples in many dishes. Salsa and chutney are similar, as are tortillas and rotis, and mole and curry.

People Are Saying Adults Shouldn't Drink Milk Because It's A "Nasty" Behavior

Children shouldn't drink milk either.

Quote
Genuine question, why did we drink milk with every meal in school

Because the civilization which forced compulsory schooling all over the world during the colonial era was heavily influenced by Turanian dietary habits.

Quote
we need a slur for people that drink milk

Turanian. ( https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2021/09/210915111005.htm )

Quote
every time i drink milk i remember my roommate who used to put powdered milk in his milk so he could drink "more milk per milk"

I think I can guess what he looks like.

Quote
normalize making fun of ppl who drink milk

Normalize prohibiting people who drink milk from reproducing.

Quote
school really had us drinking milk with pizza like it was normal

Compulsory schooling itself should not be viewed as normal. But I digress.

Quote
first person ever to drink milk was freaky as hell

Which is why Cain heroically killed him.

Quote
people who drink milk by itself are unsafe

Social Justice
Colonization and Diet: Why Plant-Based Diets are Nothing New

https://ffacoalition.org/articles/history-of-veganism/
Quote
Due to the widespread colonization, animal products are considered “essential” to the human diet, when in reality, many cultures and communities are not genetically adapted to eat them.


Veganism and other forms of plant based diets are often associated with white, western, and privileged lifestyles, and are frequently thought of as new concepts. However, European colonization leading to the spread and normalization of meat and dairy consumption has hid the fact that individuals of the global majority have been following a plant-based diet for centuries. Due to the widespread colonization, animal products are considered “essential” to the human diet, when in reality, many cultures and communities are not genetically adapted to eat them.

In the United States specifically, we have been taught to consume large quantities of meat and dairy because Europeans colonized this land. In fact, we lead the world with meat consumption at an average of 124 kilograms of meat per person per year, versus Africa at less than 20 kilograms of meat per person.

Colonization has forced diets heavy in animal products in cultures not necessarily needing it.

Even as the majority of people are lactose intolerant, communities are being encouraged to consume products that literally make them sick. If you compare the United States’ and European countries’ lactose intolerance to those of other countries, it is evident that dairy is not a product humans are genetically adapted to be consuming. When “milking countries” colonized other regions of the world, the difference in lactose tolerance is evident, as between 63 and 98% of Asians, African, and Indigenous communities have high rates of lactose intolerance. Colonization has forced diets heavy in animal products in cultures not necessarily needing it.

These impacts of colonization are evident and exacerbated by the western history of plant-based eating. British woodworker, Donald Watson, is often credited with coining the term, ‘vegan’ in 1944 and referred to as the ‘father of veganism’. This patriarchal perspective fails to recognize a long history of plant-based eating in communities of color centuries earlier. Specifically, many religions including Hinduism, Jainism, and Buddhism as well as Indigenous communities have followed vegetarian or vegan diets. Many Hindus and Buddhists follow a lacto-vegetarian diet, meaning no animal products are eaten except dairy products. There are even scheduled periods of time where only plant-based foods are allowed. Jainism also has a strong focus on peaceful and nonviolent eating, and no animal products whatsoever are eaten by strict Jains. According to ChewFo, “they may avoid eating root vegetables as the whole plant is killed when the root is dug up.”

These practices can be easily observed in various authentic cuisine restaurants where plant-based or vegan options are readily available. Most Thai, Indian, Chinese, or Ethiopian restaurants have a plethora of plant-based options while restaurants that may be classified as ‘American’ frequently lack even basic vegetarian options.

To recognize the true history of veganism and plant-based cuisine, FFAC is launching a traditional food campaign. Our staff, mentees, interns, and community members have shared recipes from their families and cultures to document this narrative.

Tons of personal anecdotes relating to this. Good luck if you decide to eat at a traditional American western diner for breakfast. Sausage is meat. Can't eat that. Bacon is meat. Can't eat that. Pancakes are almost always made with eggs and milk, and are very often spread with butter. Can't eat that. Can't eat eggs either. The same is true for a lot of other famous and stereotypically American western food. Burgers, pizza, hot dogs, etc. Thank god for the Mexicans, who luckily left an impact on our food culture. Mexican food is so easy to veganize. And it would have been even more ideal, had the colonizers not brought cheese to the Americas

"Pancakes are almost always made with eggs and milk, and are very often spread with butter."

I make pancakes using only flour, water and a few drops of oil.

"Burgers, pizza, hot dogs, etc."

At least there are veggie burgers and hot dogs. As for pizza, we can just use vegan toppings. I think we should be trying to veganize stereotypically American cuisine as much as possible.

"American western"

I disagree with calling the above Western rather than American. Recall:

I felt encouraged a few years ago when I saw ordinary Americans mocking Trump for eating KFC with a knife and fork:

people.com/celebrity/donald-trump-eats-kfc-with-a-fork-and-knife-best-twitter-responses/

This highlights that America has successfully diverged in dining style from Western civilization to the extent that it looks odd to see an American dish* being eaten Western-style. If you think about it, many mainstream dishes of modern American origin (burgers, subs, hot dogs, burritos, tacos, etc.) are all in effect variations of the pre-colonial (Pueblo) dining style of wrapping a filling in dough (originally a corn tortilla, which dates back to the Neolithic era) which can then be conveniently held by hand, eliminating the need for additional eating utensils. Imported dishes popularized by American culture (pizzas, fries, etc.) also fit comfortably into this utensil-free dining style. This is something that Americans should take pride in.

(* Of course I do not endorse the main ingredient of KFC! I am purely focusing on dining style here, not on ingredients.)

I am not the only person who has noticed this:



Note how the US is depicted as being in a war between American and Western dining styles.

What are some examples of what would you consider some archetypally Western dishes?
As a side note, even the notoriously Western country of France has some vegan dishes:

Turanized corn:



https://www.yahoo.com/lifestyle/easiest-way-cook-summer-corn-213000830.html

Quote
A picnic should be a no-fuss affair. That means easy finger foods, minimal stickiness, and as little time manning the grill as possible. And while grilled corn is a splendid picnic side dish, it can be fussy—unless you prep the ears in your slow cooker. Slow cooker steamed corn is crisp, juicy, and easy to pre-season so you don’t have to mess with butter on the go.
...
Gone are the days of dropping your slippery, partially buttered ear of corn into the dirt.

Why not simply leave out the butter altogether? Oh, your Turanian blood.....

Is margarine healthier than butter?
Margarine usually tops butter when it comes to heart health. Margarine is made from vegetable oils, so it contains unsaturated "good" fats — polyunsaturated and monounsaturated fats. These types of fats help reduce low-density lipoprotein (LDL), or "bad," cholesterol when substituted for saturated fat.

On a different note, while we have ridiculed many Homo Hubris eating utensils earlier:

https://trueleft.createaforum.com/issues/dietary-decolonization/msg11086/#msg11086

one that we missed but which I was just reminded of is yet another utterly unnecessary and uniquely Western item:

https://www.mashed.com/228143/the-real-reason-you-should-start-using-egg-cups/

Quote
Americans typically don't use egg cups — the tiny, cute little tableware specifically meant for holding a single soft-boiled egg. Some people might even think of these cups as being bougie or fancy, which might be chalked up to them being seen as an extra (and perhaps unneeded) part of a table setting (via The Takeout). But for tons of people, this is a vital part of their breakfast routine, and with good reason.

Recently, some egg cup fanatics from other countries found out about our lack of sophistication. Needless to say, they had some definite opinions. Our favorite comes from a Twitter user who said, "ok ok seriously though we did not go through 300 MILLION YEARS OF EVOLUTION to have an egg just roll around on a f****** plate."

If you ask me, Americans should be proud that egg cups never caught on in the US. Why would anyone bother to manufacture something so superfluous? Yet read this ****:

https://nymag.com/strategist/article/best-egg-cups.html

Quote
A single egg, uncracked, in a white eggcup, this time served alongside a ramekin that contained a sliver of Parmesan cheese. Between the two porcelain dishes was sandwiched a single slice of sunflower toast. Simple? Absolutely. But that white egg balanced on matching ceramic made the whole thing feel fancy
...
An eggcup takes something as mundane as a soft-boiled egg and elevates it to the centerpiece of a meal. They’re, almost by definition, a luxury, since you don’t need one to eat an egg. Plus, they’re often so uniquely shaped that they can rarely be repurposed for another use. But to own and use an eggcup is to be the kind of person who could, hypothetically, leisurely enjoy a soft-boiled egg for breakfast under the Italian sun, or host elaborate brunches at the drop of a hat.



And then, just when I thought I had seen it all, literally while writing this post I found out that there also exists an egg cutter:



Only in Western civilization.....

The counterattack of the colonial era:

https://www.yahoo.com/news/eating-habits-bring-back-1950s-090210474.html

Quote
The eating habits we need to bring back from the 1950s
...
Unsurprisingly then, few people skipped breakfast. Typically it was bacon and eggs. “Only 20 per cent of the population were having breakfast cereal in 1956,” says Gray. “We know that cereals generally speaking are pretty awful. Most are high in sugar, salt and fat.”

I like cereal.

Quote
“It’s nothing to do with calories,” he says. “You can eat a lot of healthy foods, such as meat, fish and vegetables with high calories without it translating into weight gain. It’s what the food does to you from a metabolic perspective. The western diet has too many refined carbohydrates that affect your insulin levels and cause inflammation. It’s not the fact that it’s really tasty, it’s the fact it disrupts the metabolic signalling, causing weight gain.”

I like carbs. I do not gain weight from them because I have:

https://trueleft.createaforum.com/human-evolution/aryan-metabolism/

Continuing:

Quote
In his book, he praises a Victorian diet. A 1950s ration diet wouldn’t have been much different. “There wasn’t access to refined carbohydrates in the form of processed bread, pasta, shop-bought cakes and biscuits. We also didn’t have the profusion of vegetable oils, which in my opinion, with the exception of good olive oil, are the most artificial foods that cause major distortion to our metabolism.

I like bread, pasta, biscuits and vegetable oil. I despise Victorian-1950s Britain.

Quote
The point where it all went wrong, he says, was the 1980s when saturated fats were wrongly demonised, and cereals replaced eggs as a healthy breakfast.

I like the 1980s. What he above wrongly calls the "western" diet should more accurately be called the Counterculture diet.

Quote
“The big scare that saturated fats caused cardiac disease, which has been proven to be not reliable evidence, unfortunately, meant the the western world went towards more refined carbohydrates.”

Which is why it would make more sense to call the diet of Victorian-1950s era the Western diet. High-carb followed from the Counterculture, which was anti-Western.
