Anti Capitalism Café Promoting Anarchy Goes Broke

I’m sure that some of you have already heard about this, but I’m sorry, I couldn’t resist. This is one of those sweet stories where you get to laugh at the woke left and their never-ending insanity.

I’m sorry, but if you open a business … that’s practicing capitalism. If you’re the owner of a business, the idea is to offer a product or service that serves an aspect of society and generates a profit. The profit aspect is important, because that’s the part that allows you to support yourself and keep the business open. So if you open a café and name it “The Anarchist” and proclaim your hatred of capitalism, It’s pretty obvious that there are some synapses in your brain that aren’t making contact.

Still, that’s exactly what a dolt named Gabriel Sims-Fewer decided to do in Toronto. Billing itself, as an “anti-capitalist, anti-colonial café, shop and radical community space, on stolen land.” Sims-Fewer then initiated a “pay what you can” model of payment, which for some reason he thought would be compensated for with more expensive drinks on the menu. (There’s those synapses again).

Sims-Fewer opened his gulag in March of last year, so if he does close the doors on May 30th, his experiment in futility would have lasted for 14 months on paper. However, even that’s a deception, because his capitalist landlord gifted him six months of rent for free.

Always the smooth talker, Sims Fewer said this in his farewell soliloquy:

“It’s been an amazing experience, connecting with so many great community members, sparking desperately needed debate, raising the blood pressure of conservatives (that includes you, “anarcho-capitalists” and “Libertarians”), fulfilling the dream of most service workers by not having to tolerate the presence of professional class-traitors (pigs and military), and experimenting with living and working in ways that don’t enthusiastically embrace the pure misanthropy of capitalism.”

Somehow I can’t see reasonable people dragging themselves in for a wakeup coffee and getting criticized for being on the way to work. The concept doesn’t resonate with the working class. Even the idea of getting a cappuccino for a nickel doesn’t feel right to fair minded people.

In his goodbye note, like all good leftists, Sims-Fewer refused to take responsibility for having a bad idea go bad. Instead he blamed the system:

“Unfortunately, the lack of generational wealth/seed capital from ethically bankrupt sources left me unable to weather the quiet winter season, or to grow in the ways needed to be sustainable longer-term.” 

He then tried to gloss over the failure by putting some lipstick on the pig of a business that he had created:

“The Anarchist has been a huge success in every way I hoped and has given me so much inspiration and education that I plan to put to use in future projects.”

Huge success? I guess he loves the idea of unmitigated failures. Future projects? Why do I visualize him trying to convince the Canadian Navy that their submarines would function better with screen doors?

God help you Canada, please do everything you can to keep this fool from anything with moving parts or running for office.

Lastly, like any gracious businessperson, Sims-Fewer closed his remarks by reflecting on the positive:

 “F*ck the rich. F*ck the police. F*ck the state. F*ck the colonial death camp we call “Canada.”

Well said, I’m sure you’ll be looked upon in a much better light now.

Update: There is a very recent rumor that the shop may stay open a little longer because of donations. Were the donations earned, swindled, or stolen … no one knows. What we do know about socialism, is that you eventually run out of other peoples money.

Perfect, socialism and a doughnut. Two things with gaping holes in the middle.
