Always knew I loved Cox…


#3

If I’m ever in Centerville, VA, I know where I’ll do all my shopping.


#4

Cox are the best!


#5

Centerville! It’s a real nice place to raise your kiiiiids uuuupppp!


#6

If it wasn’t so far, I’d go there just to support their business.

Wonderful people, wonderful place - they were boycotted a few years ago when a BLM sign was visible in one of the resident’s windows. I had the honor and delight of being a hayride driver there in 2001, and incorporated the lessons learned about magic and wampeters into my novel “Trashed Forsaken,” which includes a slightly mythologized tale of the genesis of Cox Farms.

Yep, District 10, Barbara Comstock (R-Va), so not surprised they are taking heat.

Tea Party trumpland bigtime.


#9

Dear Sweet Baby Cthulhu!!

What kind of nation do we have that we have to be reminded that Nazis are fucking terrible people!

That being said, good job Cox.


#10

Every single business/organization out there (hear that Google, local governments, et al) should read Cox’s response and resoundingly sign on to it. It says it all.


#11

ZOMG I want to like this eleventy million times!
But I can’t, so I’m going to repeat it instead!

You get the idea…


#12

Well done Cox, well done.


#13

When places like this take heat you just look where it’s coming from and call them out for being bigots. Good for Cox.


#14

What have we learned today, class? That’s right! White Supremacists aren’t fans of the Cox.


#15

These peeps seem like they get something important.


#16

They adopted Foamhenge when it needed a new home, too!

It’s hard to get most people to flat-out admit that they support Nazis, so the narrative has somehow mutated into “people who oppose fascism are the REAL fascists!”


#18

I think it’s time for another deep PSA from Aamer Rahman, this time about American Nazis:

And remember that “anti-antifa” is a double-negative, kids! You can just cancel the ‘anti-s’ and call such people fascists. ;D


#19

I have seen that sign!


#20

I’m resisting right now.
