Your Marxist Moron of the Day folks, Seattle Mayor Ed Murray
The mayor of Seattle has altered the rules of his proposed soda tax — which would fund education for minorities–to include diet drinks because affluent white people tend to consume them more.
So, hw abts people of certain races to pay more than people of other, preferred races. This is, of course racism!
Murray changed the bill, lowering the levy to 1.75 cents per ounce and included diet drinks because they are by favored by affluent white city residents, despite the fact that most diet drinks have no calories and therefore don’t contribute to obesity.
According to Reason, taxing diet drinks has become “an issue of equality” to the mayor because they more likely to be consumed by “upper middle class white people” and therefore must be taxed as a way to fight “white privileged institutionalized racism.”
Again, Liberals love to use taxes to create “equality”. Or at least their perversely twisted definition of equality
