I am very afraid [of] "whiskey and Coke," because after the "whiskey and Coke" I fear nothingI tweeted back that in the US we usually mix rum rather than whiskey with Coke. I then googled to find a drink recipe (I know, duh, rum+coke), and I ran across lefty Troy Patterson's Slate article: "The Rum and Coke: How to improve upon the classic mediocre Caribbean-American highball denouncing this cocktail" who incorporated an anti-American, anti-capitalist screed into his article:
The rum and Coke is the West Indian equivalent of the gin and tonic—a highball symbolic of empire. Rum, a liquor essential to the geometry of the Atlantic slave trade, met Coke, the consummate quaff of American capitalism. (Think of Cocacolonization and Godard’s “Children of Marx and Coca-Cola.”I snarkily tweeted a link to Patterson's blame America first, second, and always article:
@pealict In US we prefer "Rum&Coke" & of course humorless lib at @Slate must destroy its enjoyment @untitledproject http://t.co/YMyMrCJkfsI was implying, like Rush Limbaugh, that modern liberals are the modern kill joy Puritans

or as Evan Sayet said:
"The modern liberal, there’s something about his ideology that leads him to invariably and inevitably side with evil over good, wrong over right, the lesser over the better, the ugly over the beautiful, the profane over the profound, and the behaviors that lead to failure over those that lead to success."
Patterson replied and asserted that he was humorFUL vs humorLESS:
@adagioforstring @pealict @Slate Being one of the more humorful "libs" you're likely to meet, I resent that. Also, that drink is not good.Even though we have opposing political affiliations, I tried to maintain a civil conservation and asked for a recommendation of a politically correct drink, which Troy recommended a sidecar:

So what politically correct drink do you recommend then? @untitledproject @pealict @Slate

@adagioforstring @pealict @Slate Sidecar.
— Troy Patterson (@untitledproject) December 27, 2013
For people, such as myself, unfamiliar with either the history or recipe of the drink HuffPo has an article describing both: "An Ode to the Sidecar Cocktail"
Since the recipe calls for lemon juice, I made the apolitical observation that it looks like a good source of vitamin C:
@untitledproject @pealict @Slate I've never had a sidecar but it looks like a great way to drink vitamin C :-) http://t.co/GPgcaiXafX

However, when I later ran across a tweet from person from India:
ठंडी में भारत का राष्ट्रीय ड्रिंक होता है ओल्ड मोंक रम चियर्स... ♥ में भी आज वो ही ट्राय कर रही हु हैप्पी वीकेंड फ्रेंड्स :))
— ॐ Gujju Ben ॐ (@mrspooja74) February 15, 2014
which translates to:
Old Monk Rum is the national drink of cold in India
Cheers ... ♥
Who is it that today in Troy
Happy Weekend Friends :))
I wanted to inform Troy that, contrary to his stereotype, people from the former British colony of India did not drink gin and tonics. I tried searching for my old tweets about rum, but could not find them.
Supposedly, if you can't find tweets in your search according to the CNBC article: "Did Twitter fully undo changes to its 'block' feature?" you've been blocked by that user:
I had to go to my backup twitter account to track down my old tweets and catalog them here.
In addition to hating Coca Cola since its HQ is in US, the left also hates Bacardi, which altho has never been a US company, is still hated b/c it doesn't give money to murdering Communist dictators:
Left has vendetta against Bacardi which makes me want to drink more rum&coke: Bacardi: secret agent of US imperialism http://t.co/ginDJFTsJoSo, to all the hippy liberals out there: Cuba Libre - The Original Cocktail of Freedom!
