Starbucks Employees Still Hating on President Trump
The list of violent leftist attacks grows longer each day.
How many slogans do leftists have that promote unity? Their “stronger together” message is pure baloney, as this incident showcases.
Case in point, a woman was mocked for wearing a Trump shirt when she visited a local Starbucks.
Kayla Hart walked in to Starbucks on East Boulevard in Dilworth on Wednesday morning to get her usual cup of coffee. However, Kayla was not greeted with the normal smile and courteous, “How may I serve you?”
Instead, according to Kayla the cashier laughed and her order was labeled with a political message, mocking her support for the president.
“They shouted out ‘build a wall’ and shoved a drink at me; and then all the baristas in the back started cracking up laughing,” said Hart.
“I don’t know what politics has to do with getting a cup of coffee,” Kayla Hart said.
What is it about coffee?
The drink that helps most of America begin its day has suddenly become a hot political brew. And Starbucks has happily led the charge.
During the Ferguson fiasco, CEO Howard Schultz decided to experiment with social engineering. Schultz instructed his baristas to write a race question on customers’ cups in order to spur a race discussion. I wrote at the time.
Even when a filthy rich capitalist entrepreneur liberal like Schultz has lived the American Dream, he remains empty inside.
Schultz is like the older brother in the movie Trading Places. Randolph wants to take “Willie Ray” (played by Eddie Murphy) out of the ghetto and give him an opportunity. Randolph appears nice at first, until he’s done with his experiment and decides along with his brother Mortimer that he would never have a N*IGGER run their company.
And like in Trading Places, Schultz likely bet some other bleeding heart do-gooder, enabler leftist billionaire a DOLLAR to see if he could get a black man arrested and a barista’s ass kicked at the same time.
Leftists play games with blacks, and for the silliest of reasons.
However, their tinkering is not limited to the world’s darkest minority group. Recall when Schultz took a stance in defiance of Trump’s immigration executive order.
Recently, Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz took a stance in defiance of Trump’s immigration executive order. He offered a message where he vowed to hire 10,000 refugees over the next 5 years. His catchphrase was “build bridges, not walls, with Mexico.”
Here is part of Schult’z political message:
I write to you today with deep concern, a heavy heart and a resolute promise. Let me begin with the news that is immediately in front of us: we have all been witness to the confusion, surprise and opposition to the Executive Order that President Trump issued on Friday, effectively banning people from several predominantly Muslim countries from entering the United States, including refugees fleeing wars. I can assure you that our Partner Resources team has been in direct contact with the partners who are impacted by this immigration ban, and we are doing everything possible to support and help them to navigate through this confusing period.
Apparently, losing 24 percent of a company’s brand value will bring even the most ardent leftist to his senses.
This move certainly backfired, as Schultz later begged conservatives back, who rightfully abandoned the change.
Five straight quarters of decreased sales prove that the conservative dollar matters. Starbucks’ CEO Howard Schulz’ repeated attacks on conservatives hit the coffee giant where it hurts the most…in the pocketbook.
Starbucks knows why their sales have fallen, and it’s not a softening of the market. To admit that would mean to admit that Obama’s economy wasn’t working.
Although Obama is partly to blame, the bigger impact to Starbuck’s bottom line was abandonment by conservatives. And Wall Street agrees.
Financial analysts blame Schultz’s leftist activism.
It all started when the company removed religion from its holiday promotions. Recall that Starbucks stopped using “Merry Christmas” on their holiday cups. When the company did that, Donald Trump called for the first boycott of the company at a campaign rally in November 2015.
“I have one of the most successful Starbucks, in Trump Tower. Maybe we should boycott Starbucks? I don’t know … That’s the end of that lease, but who cares?” Trump said during a campaign rally. “If I become president, we’re all going to be saying Merry Christmas again, that I can tell you. That I can tell you.”
In less than 12 hours, the Trump effect had taken hold.
One would think Starbucks had learned its lesson.
In other words, shut up and serve coffee. Schultz certainly found out the hard way as he was asked to step down as CEO.
According to NPR,
Schultz will become executive chairman in April to focus on innovation and social impact activities, the Seattle-based chain announced Thursday. Kevin Johnson, who was named president and chief operating officer last year, will be chief executive as of April 3.
Schultz, 63, is credited with turning around Starbucks’ fortunes since returning as its CEO in 2008. He has overseen the expansion of the chain’s food and beverage offerings and the growth of its popular loyalty program and mobile app.
Starbucks has credited the rewards program and app for helping consistently increase sales in the U.S., although growth has slowed more recently and traffic slipped in the latest quarter. Schultz has said such technology adaptions will become increasingly critical for brick-and-mortar retail businesses to thrive as shopping habits change.
Schultz may have been a change agent in the beginning, but he’s became a liability.
If Starbucks and other leftist organizations keep this up they will continue to lose their credibility, their clients, and their money.
