You couldn’t make it up. A daft German supermarket has compared races to food in a bizarre attempt to lecture customers about why racism is bad.
The Metro is reporting Edeka supermarket in Hamburg wanted to present empty shelves to combat narrow-minded views.
Apparently, they have had “positive feedback” on the publicity stunt, and are “delighted” with its success.
An Edeka spokesman said: “Edeka stands for diversity, and we produce a wide range of food in our assortment, which is produced in the different regions of Germany. But it is together with products from other countries that we create the unique diversity that our customers value. We are delighted to have received a lot of positive feedback regarding Saturday’s action.”
Removing the products of other countries is not proving a point, or showing how much Germany relies on other countries. If a German supermarket was somehow, through some twist of fate, unable to sell foreign goods, the shelves would be packed with local produce. Demand simply does not come to an end.
One can assume they are using the goods as metaphors as to the importance of people from other countries, that they bring variety to our lives. If we did not have this variety, we’d be left with empty holes in our society.
Essentially, it boils down to that they believe Germans need to be taught a lesson on racism. This stunt, which they knew would go viral, is to serve as a reminder for Germans to be nicer to migrants.
How is comparing a human being to a block of Dutch cheese or a Spanish tomato going to conquer racism?
Food is not a race.
It is hard to tell if this supermarket is being serious or not, or if this is the new way PR companies exploit the media. Is making their customer look so utterly ridiculous, which the liberal MSM loves, the way to generate publicity for one’s business?
If, on the other hand, they believed this is a serious political message they are sending, then they are truly stuck in the progressive bubble of delusion. The only people who will take this seriously are social justice warriors.
The supermarket is in Hamburg, so perhaps it’ll act in its favour and reel in more foaming-from-the-mouth and eyes-glazed-over-in-madness far-left activists.
When you think about it more, all Edeka is doing here is insulting their customers, by essentially informing them they are racist and take all these products of the world for granted.
Let’s go a little deeper. It’s actually more racist, if you take their diluted meaning of the term, to suddenly stop buying the goods of struggling third world countries and those recession-hit European neighbours.
And there is more in this image, about how globalisation has ravaged our own businesses. Yet, you’ll be called racist for saying you want to “buy British” or put “America first!”, when it comes to manufacturing and production of food.
By removing foods of the worlds, you’re not going to reduce demand to a couple of locally produced items. You’d actually give the economies of the Western nations steroids if they could only buy food produced in their own nations.
So, Edeka, one does hope you enjoyed the PR stunt, because it has given the enemies of political correctness yet more ammunition to, one day hopefully, make the West great again.
