Cracker Barrel offers plant-based options. Conservatives have lost their collective s**t

“I just disrespected a Tennessee company.”

“Are you kidding me? Who do you think your customers are? I still order breakfast meat twice and it’s no longer on the menu.”

“You can take my pork-pork sausage when you take it from my cold, dead hand!!1 DON’T step on the pork!!1

“No plant-based sausage! Call it what you want, it’s still not a sausage. Like ‘transgender’, call it what you want but……… know it.”

As we said about accepting everything you might not agree with—abortion in same-sex marriage—what’s your business? No one asked for your opinion. If you don’t like it, don’t marry someone of the same sex, or have an abortion, or eat the veggie pasta.

For me, Cracker Barrel is one of those places you see on the highway when you’re driving from one state to another. But, guys, I was wrong. It is a beloved institution founded in 1969 in Lebanon, Tennessee. And in that 50-plus-year history, there is an array of racism and bigotry deeper than vegan sausage.

The Washington Post report but in 1991 Cracker Barrel was called firing gay workers “sexuality does not reflect the heterosexual sexual values ​​that are the basis of the family in our society”. The company ended the policy after intense pressure from gay rights activists, The Los Angeles Times reported.

But in 2004, the Department of Justice filed suit against the chain after multiple claims of racial discrimination against black customers.


A list of complaints about Cracker Barrel includes:

  • “White customers sitting in front of African-American customers who arrived earlier”
  • “Provided inferior service to African-American customers after occupancy”
  • “African-Americans who complained about the quality of Cracker Barrel’s food or service were treated better than white customers who filed similar complaints”

The fact is that restaurants like Cracker Barrel, Burger King, Carl’s Jr., and others are not trying to be political. They are trying to make money. And ever since Heart disease is the leading cause of death for all people in most racial and ethnic groups in the United States, maybe the Impossible Sausage will help a few people live better. It won’t change everything, but at least it’s a start.

And that’s in addition to the impact of eating meat on the planet. According to the folks at UCLA Sustainability, “From a tear gas perspective, no doubt about it; it’s better for the environment to eat plant-based foods.”
