Even the Food Critic of the Washington Post Hates the Commoners


Sister Babe’s insistence on subscribing to The Washington Post’s Sunday edition always gives me some great insight into the Leftist mind. This past Sunday included an incredibly insulting article by their Food Critic, Tom Sietsema. Even though most of the Washington Post magazine insert was dedicated to how the DC eateries will get back on their feet, there was one short article showing a complete obliviousness to what they are going through. The post is called “7 Restaurant Trends I Don’t Miss”. It’s a short read if you don’t mind giving WaPo a click, and seems innocouous enough. Here’s the list if you’re curious but don’t want to give them a click: No reservations, Earsplitting Dining Rooms, Help-yourself bread baskets, Communal tables, Crowded bars, Epic specials, and Tight seating. Like I said, nothing sinister here, but look at the seven items and see if you can pick up on the common thread before you read the next paragraph.

Did you see it? I actually agree that those seven things can make your night out less enjoyable. But they only exist (or did) in restaurants that are busy, or simply, prosperous. If they’re crowded or are offering so many options, it’s because they are bringing in business, and with it the jobs that go with them. Less crowded eateries means fewer jobs, less in tips, and makes it harder for the owners to keep the doors open. As you look through the pages of the Sunday WaPo you’ll see no shortage of hardship stories of people who’ve been hurt by the Kung Flu Virus and the Boogie Wuhan Flu. But when you read a flippant article like this it makes you wonder if the staff at WaPo’s “concern” for those affected ends where their plight can be used to campaign against President Trump. The lockdown is having very real affects on people across every level of our economy. It must be nice to have a billionaire sugar daddy who’s been profiting hand over fist from 2020 and to be oblivious to those who’ve been hurt. The rest of America doesn’t need a sugar daddy, just a President that will continue to push to take the boot off of the throat of our economy. And if you’re not sure who that candidate is, you just might be a food critic for The Washington Post.

I didn’t realize those were growing trends in dining places.
I just thought there are some family friendly places where you might expect all of the above.
Perhaps this WaPo creep calls these commoners, Breeders, to designate that they have, wait for it, children!
And God forbid he have to rub shoulders with the little critters of this world.

You know what else is missing? Tax revenue. Liberals, of course, are unaware of the process (making the sausage) by which wealth is created and, thus, tax revenue generated. To them, it simply appears and, like Doritos, waste all you want, we’ll print more. Liberal polices and actions has destroyed the wealth-creating process so the arrogant sot Pelosi strangles aid to those in need to prop up those who were ALREADY in fiscal deep doo-doo even before the epidemic.

These people are incapable of judgement and should NEVER have political power.

@Brother Bob:

tom is a sleazie WaPo, ex microsoft employee. he has worked for WaPo, no different from the slime for 20 years. his culinary propaganda focuses on the pudnut mentality of the white elites in dc. unlike the ” Brooklyn Cowboy” Aaron Copland’s Fanfare for the Common Man. his message is to the elitists-democrap by party affiliation. loves pelosi and obama-shit,chucky and the elitis white
Copland’s Fanfare for the Common Man

@Brother Bob:Who is for daycare full of rugrats with crayola markers loose in his designer all white sterile Apartment., Ok kids we are all going to give up our sippy cups today for real ones line up for cherry Koolaid.
Bob no subscription here, but I have been to the places critics rave about, even an itallian one redone by food network to “save it”, honestly I prefer the supper clubs we have here.


Maiden Lake Supper Club is over priced, snob waiters and average food. I was not impressed for the price or the “atmosphere”.

@MOS#8541: Most supper clubs are priced reasonably, stay away from the Milwaukee area and its burbs its full of ignorant lib wanna be fakers that are used to paying extra for nuthin’. If they dont crush the sugar cube with a mortar and pestle for an old fashioned they are substandard, simple syrup is a fools substitute. A good club never puts on airs they put out good food.


spent 8 years in Chi., and familiarity with pseudo-elite milwaukee clubs. the drink old fashion was created during prohibition. recall that one adds a touch of bitter’s so as to cover up the taste of the boot legged booze.
the working class in America does not dine at 4-5* restaurants, mon and pop dinners and small, family owned hole in the wall joints. no better way to start the weekend with chicken fried steak, gravy and grits with a cup of hot coffee.
