After conservatives successfully boycotted Bud Light over the company’s overt political purpose, it appears that the left has found its own boycott target in the form of In-N-Out Burger.
The fast food chain has angered those on the political left by informing workers they can remove their masks from the workplace now that the coronavirus crisis has passed.
Why wouldn’t the world’s largest burger chain do that? There are no reliable research showing that virus transmission can be avoided using masking. The use of masks is futile.
Dr. Lucky Tran, a prominent left-wing figure, was so outraged that he started a big Twitter thread in which he railed against the burger chain and encouraged his followers to attack the corporation via tweets and remarks posted on the company’s websites.
The recent ruling by a California court that workers who contract COVID-19 on the job cannot sue their employers has upset mask zealot Tran, who calls himself “a global scientist.”
Tran then noted noted that “This week, In-N-Out banned their employees from wearing masks.”
“This is horrible,” he whined.

After that, Tran published the In-N-Out policy statement:

The doctor has started directing patients to the public comments page of the burger chain.

Leftists from other groups also attacked In-N-Out. On Twitter, a person by the name of Babs encouraged other left-leaning users to report the corporation.
Another shrill leftist advised liberals to “BE LOUD” in their attacks on In-N-Out over its masking policy.
“We have to fight back on this. We need to BE LOUD in our opposition! Call and email In-n-out! Let them know this is unacceptable. Policymakers and organizations need to speak out. Businesses cannot ban masks and put staff life and health in danger,” she wrote.
And Twitter user “oh dear” called for a boycott of the fast food joint.
“Banning masks at work?!?” Oh dear wrote, “THIS demands a #Boycott of In-N-Out Burger. They are putting their currently-healthy workers at risk. Unbelievable, in the light of scientific evidence of long COVID issues.”
Finally, the far-left group “MaskTogetherAmerica,” formed in 2019 to promote vaccines and the “mask myth” in America, jumped in to encourage its brainwashed members to assault In-N-Out.
“In-N-Out Burger is allegedly trying to ban employees from wearing masks unless they have a doctor’s note, except @innoutburger in CA. MaskTogetherAmerica condemns mask bullying, mask banning or any forms of discrimination against people who mask up to stay healthy,” the far-left group tweeted.
It didn’t seem to occur to any of these liberals that if they didn’t like In-N-Out’s masking practices, they could always find another employer. They don’t have to remain in a place that makes them feel unsafe. They can find work in a progressive establishment like Starbucks.
It’s true that the left has previously taken aim at In-N-Out. It’s to be expected, given the company’s Christian and conservative values.
In any case, kudos to In-N-Out for finally beating back COVID-19.
