Americans now hate capitalism

In an amazing twist of irony it would appear that when capitalism threatens their seething xenophobia, some Americans gladly forsake their number one philosophy. A pizza chain with mostly Hispanic customers decided to announce they would also accept pesos … and immediately started receiving a stream of angry letters, including death threats, from people who presumably don’t want companies to make money in the US. Because that would be capitalistic, and therefore unamerican. Or at least not as American as xenophobia.
