Boycott Papa Johns. Papa lives in a castle with a private golf course and is now saying he can't afford to pay health care for employees.—

Yesterday Twitchy reported that the unhinged Left was targeting Applebee’s because one monstrous franchisee may implement a hiring freeze to deal with the financial realities of Obamacare. Today, the target is Papa John’s CEO John Schnatter.
Schnatter was hammered with Twitter abuse in August after he told shareholders he would raise prices to offset the cost of Obamacare. Now, he expects franchise owners will reduce employees’ hours rather than provide costly, mandated insurance coverage to people working 30 hours per week.
“That’s probably what’s going to happen,” he said. “It’s common sense. That’s what I call lose-lose.”
Reality is hard. But class warfare? Easy peasy!
Time to shriek about boycotts:
Oh, that’s right. It’s all about revenge.
And of course, the calls for boycotts are civil, loving and tolerant.
Classy. Oh, and clever!
The reality is that business owners are heartbroken about the layoffs forced by four more years of Obama’s catastrophic tinkering with the economy. Those same business owners are being attacked as vengeful, greedy and un-American by progressive screechers. Blame anyone but Obama for the president’s destructive policies, right libs?
Anyone up for a “buycott“?
