Spice Company Runs Funny 'Republicans Are Racists Weekend' Promo

The ad comes just before Martin Luther King Day.

A spice company is putting it all on the advertising line with its latest promotion.

Penzy’s Spices, a national spice chain based in Wisconsin, is holding a special “Republicans Are Racists Weekend” deal where prospective customers can get a free jar of Chinese Cinnamon, Mexican Oregano or Curry when they spend $10.

The ad, which is featured on the company’s official social media accounts, email list and website encourages customers to “cheese off racists for free!” The promo ends January 19.

Additionally, the promo contains 10 free Black Lives Matter stickers because they have “earned our respect!”

“Remember when Black Lives Matter started to have some success getting all of America to see how unfairly Black Americans are treated in this country and the importance of us all saying Black Lives Matter until Black lives start to be treated as though they do matter?” the company stated in the promo email. “Remember how Republicans, seeing the success BLM was having in moving America towards greater equality for Black people, in many ways the first real success since the time of Dr. King, remember how Republicans did all they could to derail that success by trying to drown out BLM’s message with shouts of all lives matter, and blue lives matter, and lying about the leaders of BLM being Marxists and Communists?”

The promo goes on to cite George Floyd and the protests that spread nationwide after he was killed by a former Minneapolis officer, as well as how Republicans attempt to squash BLM demonstrations, calling them “a bunch of racists.”
