As the most reliable and balanced news aggregation service on the internet, DML News offers the following information published by SACBEE.COM:
California Democratic Party Chairman Eric Bauman is calling for a boycott of In-N-Out Burger after the Irvine-based fast-food chain this week donated $25,000 to help Republicans this November.
“Et tu In-N-Out? Tens of thousands of dollars donated to the California Republican Party,” Bauman wrote on Twitter. “It’s time to #BoycottInNOut — let Trump and his cronies support these creeps…perhaps animal style!”
The article goes on to state the following:
The burger chain started in Southern California decades ago by a Christian family, whose granddaughter Lynsi Snyder still owns the company. It proudly displays its religious views — there’s a Bible verse on some packaging — and has in recent years contributed to Republicans and pro-business causes.
In addition to its $25,000 this week, it donated $30,000 to the GOP in 2017 and $30,000 in 2016. It has also contributed to the California pro-business political action committee, “Californians for Jobs & A Strong Economy,” which helps elect moderate Democrats. Most recently, it gave the PAC $80,000 in 2017.

But the popular fast-food restaurant is facing a wave of backlash in deep-blue California following this week’s contribution, especially on social media.
Grow up. They donate to both parties, as does most corporations, but this hack left that part out.

Go ahead have a fit, make it more popular & profitable. Just ask the Chick-fil-A folk.

In N Out also have scripture at the bottom of their cups. This is literally no surprise, and yet, I’m still grossed out.

Why is this published? Does it matter what politics chains/companies support? Must EVERYTHING be political?

There’s nothing more Californian than In-N-Out Burger. Great lunch today in #Fresno. If .@GavinNewsom is nervous debating me on CA issues – maybe a friendly Double Double vs Caviar joust? pic.twitter.com/pEHqhb8jD3
