Watch: Delicious Pizza Still Can’t Make Socialism Work

A Boston pizza shop with socialist stylings has closed after not making enough money.

Dudley Dough opened two years ago, calling itself “pizza with a purpose” and aiming to pay employees a “fair wage” while trying to “put a social enterprise model into action.” The pizza shop was a project from Haley House, a nonprofit in Boston that provides food and housing assistance. Unfortunately for Dudley Dough, the nonprofit could not afford to keep subsiding the restaurant.

“Two years after the opening, we now know the results,” Glenn said. “It always ends exactly the same.”

Get the full story on Dudley Dough and the “fair wage” concept with our explainer.

GLENN: “Pizza with a purpose.”

That’s the motto of Boston area restaurant “Dudley Dough.”

They serve the usual fare. Pizza, coffee, and…economic justice.

Dudley Dough was opened in 2015 by the nonprofit organization Haley House to test out their ideas of economic justice and fair wages.

But sadly, just two years after opening, Dudley Dough is closing their doors. By all accounts, the pizza was delicious and fresh. It was their social justice inspired business model that was rotten.

The pizza joint started out with money (a $100,000 donation from the owner of the New England Patriots) but since they weren’t intent on really making any dough on their own, the business failed.

Look, Dudley Dough had some really nice ideas. They made sure they paid their employees more than minimum wage and donated pizza for daily tutoring sessions. That’s nice!

But what would really be nice, for the employees and clients, is if they were still open. Making money is not evil. It’s a fact that capitalist minded people and the businesses they start are better able to share their money and success with exponentially more people.

If Dudley Dough struck a good balance between taking care of their community and taking care of finances, they might still be in business.

Let’s all learn a lesson from Dudley Dough. Social justice is worse than anchovies on pizza.

Was Dr. Fauci involved in a COVID cover-up?

Released emails between virologist Christian Anderson and Dr. Fauci during early 2020 show Dr. Fauci was aware several, competent doctors believed the COVID virus contained genomes 'inconsistent with expectations from evolutionary theory.' Or, in other words, they didn't believe it simply evolved from a bat. So, then, what changed? And why was Fauci so concerned when a 2012 paper regarding his interest in 'gain of function' research began to circulate online? It's all just speculation for now, but Glenn shares HIS theory: Fauci may have been involved in a major COVID-related coverup…

THIS is why Dr. Fauci’s emails ELIMINATE his credibility

Glenn breaks down the recent Dr. Fauci scandal, explaining WHY his recently released emails are so damning. Not only do his correspondence disprove the theory he was being censored by the Trump administration, but they eliminate any credibility he may have once had on the COVID pandemic, too. Even further: they confirm he lied under oath. The mainstream media may want you to think he's 'Mother Theresa in pants,' but these emails tell a MUCH different story. So, is it finally time to #FireFauci?

LIVE NOW: Golden State Gulag: California's pursuit of Communism is a WARNING for America

California has gone to hell. Homelessness and violence have spiked. Civil liberties and businesses have been destroyed in the name of "COVID safety." Children have been brainwashed with racist critical race theory. And yet, Democrats want to use California as the test model for the entire country. Your state and your town are next. They want their FAILURE to become YOUR FUTURE.

4 QUESTIONS the DHS must answer regarding their domestic ‘terror’ warning

The DHS recently released a rare terror bulletin, warning Americans of an increasing threat: domestic extremists. But if the Biden administration believes there's a grave danger to the American people, WHY are they not providing us with the information we need to protect ourselves? Or is it all due to politics? Glenn has four questions he believes our officials in DC must answer. For example, WHY are the Capitol rioters being treated like prisoners at Guantanamo?
