Useful Idiots: Chipotle Espouses Communist Rhetoric On To-Go Bags
After Chipotle declared that they were prohibiting patrons from exercising their Second Amendment rights in their restaurants, the Mexican grill took another step to the left by writing slogans on their bags that include plainly Communist rhetoric.
The fast-food grill now issues paper bags for to-go orders with a variety of quotes from authors like Toni Morrison, Malcolm Gladwell and George Saunders.
The campaign, announced in May, was created by militant vegetarian Jonathan Safran Foer who claims that he wanted to offer people something to read while dining.
“A lot of these people don’t have access to libraries, or bookstores,” Foer said. “Something felt very democratic and good about this.”

Um… Okay. I can scarcely think of a town that has a Chipotle but not a public library. But moving on…
This is an attempt at clever marketing; let’s not pretend this is a humanitarian attempt provide literature one slogan at a time to the masses.
Still, one quote has stood out from the rest as it unabashedly calls for a Utopian existence free of monetary arrangements and committed to a Bolshevist ideology.
A bag with a quote from George Saunders offers this bit of pretentious rambling:
“Hope that, in future, all is well, everyone eats free, no one must work, all just sit around feeling love for one another.”
Damn- that should have been Obama’s campaign slogan…
The brief statement is simply absurd. Aside from the obvious impracticalities of such a world, the bag’s quote describes, essentially, a world without purpose- no working, no comparative value- just nothingness.
Further, the quote promotes a Communist ideology that is simply and ironically incompatible with the food establishment in which it is offered.
It’s amazing that I must state the obvious but….
If everybody eats for free, then Chipotle cannot exist as they must charge for their food.
Further, who would make the burritos if nobody must work but were, instead, sitting around the walk-in freezer “feeling love for one another?”
he saying on the bag is a colossally-moronic bit of pretentious garble that has no real relation to the world and can only serve as an embarrassment for Chipotle, Mr. Saunders and any Hippy-dippy moron dumb enough to gleam any semblance of thought from this brief and idiotic statement.
