Penzey Spices CEO Calls Republicans Racists in a Hate Email to Customers

Wauwatosa-based Penzeys Spices, a national company, says Republicans are “racists” — all Republicans. This is yet another company who doesn’t care if he loses half his customers.

In a Friday, Jan. 14 morning email blast from the company to customers, the subject line read: “Republicans Are Racists Weekend.”

In the email, CEO Bill Penzey addresses Republicans: “If you are a Republican voter you are now cheesed off. You were promised that there would never be any accountability for your support of the party of open ‘textbook’ racism. Sorry, but for the betterment of all Americans, you included, we’ve decided to end that rule. And I really don’t care what your race is or how many of your friends ‘happen to be’ whatever. None of that excuses you.”

The company also posted the message to its Facebook page, which drew mixed reactions. “I just threw out my ‘Be Kind Penzeys’ magnet. What a hypocritical company,” responded one person.

Penzey launched attacks against the GOP and made comments incensing people at other times.

In 2014, Penzey wrote that residents of Waukesha County had “fled west” to escape diversity in Milwaukee. In 2016, he accused supporters of Donald Trump of committing “racism” by voting for Trump.

But what was the price of tea in China as the boy cried wolf.
The Grand Old Politburo is the party of Jim Crow and slavery?
Nope.

O/T-Still no cereal and strudels! Nothing that I consume but fam is into it.
Shelves are coming back online and out at beyond the metro zone stores are still well stocked and the poor people’s grocery from Germany had everything but bottled water is sold out.

I have bought Penzey spices for years and have a full array in my spice chest. I’ve also purchased them as gifts for family and friends. This is where we part company from that business. Making that stupidly prejudiced classless and tasteless remark about all Republicans only proves, Bill Penzey is a foolish ignoramus I along with friends and relatives will be forwarding his message.
Fine with me Penzey, you don’t want us as customers and we don’t want your product in our home.

Penzeys sister owns The Spice House. Their politics are left unsaid. Try them. Company a bit smaller but worth taking business from her whack-job brother
