AMERICAN GREATNESS: Family Scandalizes Liberals By Drinking 12 Gallons of Milk a Week

Conservatives have affirmed the patriotic virtue of drinking milk after liberals mocked a family for consuming 12 gallons of the beverage per week.

MEET THESE MILK

In a Thursday CNN segment about how rising prices are affecting middle-class Americans, the Stotlers said their family’s weekly grocery bill spiked by $100 over the summer.

“A gallon of milk was $1.99. Now it’s $2.79. When you buy 12 gallons a week times four weeks, that’s a lot of money,” Krista Stotler told CNN.

  • Krista and her husband, Larry Stotler, look after nine kids, including two adoptive children and one foster child.
  • Larry Stotler said he feels guilty because the family is being forced to buy less healthy food to save money.

THE REACTION

Journalists and other left-leaning Twitter commentators ridiculed the Stotlers’ milk consumption, with Orlando Sentinel sports editor J.  Michael saying the family has a “contraception problem.”

“Having to buy 12 gallons a week means you have an issue with contraception … not the price of milk,” said Orlando Sentinel sports editor J.  Michael.

Even The New York Times’ Wordplay section account cracked since-deleted joke at the family’s expense.

THE AMERICAN GREATNESS

Conservatives, meanwhile, rallied to Stotlers’ defense, accusing critics of being out of touch.

Evan McMorris-Santoro, the CNN reporter behind the segment, similarly responded: “Truly remarkable number of assholes on here attempting to dunk on a charming family who lays out how it feels to shop with price rises. Very wise and cool tweets. Glad you’re all weathering the economy so well!”
