THEY GET THE VAPORS SO EASILY AT THE HUFFINGTON POST: “Cultural Appropriation, the Ultimate Sin” including — quelle horreur! — “The Foes Of Faux Pho” as explored by Dan Gainor at NewsBusters:
Bon Appétit’s readers might have noticed a recent piece that was originally called: “PSA: This Is How You Should Be Eating Pho.” The story included a video of Philadelphia’s Stock chef Tyler Akin. Stock serves Southeast Asian food and Tyler has a problem, he’s white. The video showed how he eats Pho. And that’s a no-no. The HuffPo thought police responded with, “Why The Outrage Over Bon Appétit’s Pho Article Is Completely Justified.” Not just “justified,” but “completely justified.” They proceeded to quote every idiot they could find who was angry that a white guy might be an expert in something that white people didn’t invent. One site even called it “whitesplaining.” Bon Appétit went grovelling and responded “how we screwed up and what we can do about it.” Actual quote: “While Akin mentions in the video that he’s demonstrated his personal, preferred way of consuming pho, the outlet’s packaging still positioned him as an authority.” This is America 2016. It’s controversial to have a white chef make ethnic food. But no one on the left refuses to use electricity or the telephone because scary old white men were involved in their invention.
Read the whole thing – sooner rather than later, as it’s only a matter of time before we all must don our “environmentally friendly death suit,” as spotted by Gainor at the conclusion of his look into how exponentially insane the left has become in recent years.

Oh, and lest I forget:
