Penzeys, a Wisconsin-based spice retailer, has accused the Republican Party of embracing racism for backing Donald Trump.
“The open embrace of racism by the Republican party in this election is now unleashing a wave of ugliness unseen in this country for decades,” wrote Penzeys CEO Bill Penzey in an email to customers. “The American people are taking notice.”
Apparently, Mr. Penzey has been sniffing a bit too much Paprika or smoking too much Oregano.
Penzeys operates dozens of retail outlets in 29 states – along with a popular mail order business. And many of their customers were outraged by the insinuation that people who voted for Trump are racist.
That led to another note from Mr. Penzey – apologizing for calling Republicans who voted for someone other than Trump a racist.
