In-N-Out Burgers, the most famous burger chain on the West Coast is facing calls for a boycott from California Democratic leader Eric Bauman over its contributions to the California Republican Party.

In-N-Out Burgers donated $25,000 to the California Republican Party on Aug. 27, according to a <a href="http://cal-access.sos.ca.gov/PDFGen/pdfgen.prg?filingid=2287034&amendid=0"> public filing </a> with the Secretary of State.

Eric Bauman, chairman of the California Democratic Party, took to Twitter on Wednesday night to call for a boycott in response to the filing writing,“Et tu In-N-Out? Tens of thousands of dollars donated to the California Republican Party… it’s time to #BoycottInNOut – let Trump and his cronies support these creeps… perhaps animal style!”

In-N-Out Burger's executive vice president Arnie Wensinger said the company "has made equal contributions to both Democratic and Republican Political Action Committees in the State of California" in 2018.” “While it is unfortunate that our contributions to support both political parties in California has caused concern with some groups, we believe that bipartisan support is a fair and consistent approach that best serves the interests of our company and all of our Customers.”

In-N-Out Burger has been always been considered a conservative-leaning fast food chain. They are known for printing Bible verses on their packaging.

Irvine-based In-N-Out donated approximately $30,000 to state Republicans both in 2016 and 2017; but in 2018, they contributed $50,000 to Californians for Jobs and a Strong Economy, a pro-business political action committee founded by Democratic operative David Townsend, according to Fortune.

Conservatives stepped up to show their support for the burger chain.

typical liberal crap….they probably increased sales since the Dimms started Whining

If they printed Islamic shit and called the joints aloha snack bar it would be nonstop praise. A boycott only keeps the crazies out and that’s a plus in my eyes.

I'm just sorry that there's not one near me. I would support them every night. Great article Lexy.

What is this the 15th or 16th Liberal called for Protest because it was Pro-America in the last 18 months?

How many boycotts were successful where the business bowed to the lefts wishes and stayed in as good, or better financial operation……..ZERO.

But we can name a few few that said NO and continued as they always have and or improved they financial operations.

Summary: The Left Liberals love to protest bitch moan and groan. But seldom crack open their wallets to support businesses that actually bow to their wishes and demands.

Anyone shallow enough to be swayed by the statement of a Democrat has bigger issues than In & Out Burger

DeplorableRN No. 35782 1535811546

Liberals show how crazy they really are on a daily basis. They are like playground bullies.

Not2far2right No. 35784 1535812469

Typical police state tactics from the Democrats. They want to control who you donate to, who you worship, your kids' education, your healthcare, etc. How does anyone support them anymore??

Jo No. 35788 1535816433

Sorry Liberal Democrat idiots. You are fighting a losing battle on this one. In-N-Out is way more popular than you morons.

He needs to buy better panties. His seems to be in such a wad that they’re choking the blood supply to his brain.

Democrats have gone over to satan altogether, their even trying to pass a bill in california to ban Bibles! Total evil, vote red!

Anonymous No. 35816 1535835984

Actually this should teach IN and OUT not to support demonrrats! Putting God"s word on their packaging is a brilliant idea though and we need more companies like in and out! Next they'll be calling for a boycott because of that. I believe that's what it's all about anyway!

Rock Solid No. 35818 1535839077

I am going to go on an In and Out Burger Bimge!! Thanks Lexy and Goldwater!!!

Like was said above in a different way.

A liberal boycott only improves the clientele and that’s a plus in my eyes.

I really don't want to see a rainbow of hair colors, 100's body piercing, skin sores, running noses, those that avoid baths etc… when I am eating.

So it is a win for me.

I would prefer merchants I shop to pay attention to their business and produce the best product at the lowest price. No political contributions or tree hugging at all, thankyew.
