Portland Restaurant Sabotaged For Having British Empire Theme

Leftist intolerance never stops

A restaurant in Portland, Oregon is being targeted by protesters who say its British Empire theme is offensive to minorities.

Saffron Colonial focuses on English cuisine, but in addition to afternoon teas and English breakfasts the restaurant also incorporates “globally inspired dishes from the height of the British Empire,” such as a Burmese curry dish.

Owner Sally Krantz says she’s interested in historical dishes and wants her restaurant to reflect the unique dishes and meal combinations created through the existence of the British Empire.

And that has some Portland residents outraged. A March 19 open letter by Stephanie Dünx lays out the core criticisms of Saffron’s theme.

“While molasses cookies and sausage rolls may come to mind for you when you think of British colonialism, many of us associate it with forced religious conversion/cultural erasure, famine, and slavery,” the letter says. “You may argue that those days are long gone, but India has been independent for less than 70 years, which means there are still people alive today who have experienced the harms of British colonial rule.”

In addition to her letter, Dünx also organized a protest march to Saffron Colonial. During the protest, demonstrators plastered Saffron Colonial’s windows with homemade signs declaring “Closed due to glorifying colonialism” and similar phrases.

Besides marching to the restaurant, critics have also started to sabotage its Yelp page with negative reviews.

A ridiculous reaction to a harm-less restaurant merely serving "historical" food. Why don't these protesters target Chinese restaurants for the "harm" China does NOW today, etc. And why only focus on the down-side of British and European colonialism and not on some of the up-side - of all that it brought to other countries that benefit from it today, especially India. And look what African countries have done with their "independence". If these protesters hate "colonialism" so much they should leave America, unless they have "Native American" blood.

Reminds me of the "Life of Brian" line - "What did the Romans ever do for us?"

By their own actions they are racist against a minority that appreciates the UK and what it has done for food. There are none more intolerant than those that preach tolerance i.e. the leftist socialists.

Portland is a white eco-liberal bastion so ridiculous that they made a sitcom about it that is in it's sixth year/series. The restaurant will not stand a chance against these hypersensitive meddlers onslaught and will probably be better off to move to another city.
