It would appear that the left has formed a circular firing squad and is now attacking its own.
Liberal Starbucks, famous for being anti-gun rights, anti-traditional marriage and anti-Trump is taking serious heat from feminists who say white supremacy is supported by every pumpkin spice latte sold at Starbucks.
Washington Examiner has the story:
… Now, a feminist nonprofit is running a campaign to convince festive imbibers of Pumpkin Spice Lattes they’re unknowingly boosting the cause of white supremacy.
The co-founder of UltraViolet issued the “shot of racism” statement Sept. 6. I knew Starbucks had a secret menu, but the baristas must really be keeping these racism shots on the down low.
A social media post from the group informed readers: “That favorite fall drink of yours is funding rent payments to white supremacy.”
Given the severity of the campaign’s language, one may assume profits from sales of Starbucks’ beloved PSLs are being surreptitiously redirected to the Klan or neo-Nazi groups. In fact, UltraViolet’s actual complaint is that a couple of Starbucks’ 24,000 locations happen to be in properties owned by the Trump Organization.
According to UltraViolet’s logic, by patronizing any of Starbucks’ thousands of stores, average consumers of the signature fall beverage are directly boosting the cause of white supremacy. How increased latte profits to the Trump Organization (not even the White House) impact the president’s policies on racial matters is left unclear.
Maybe we can just chalk up this bizarre confusion to the disconnected synapses of the leftist brain, and leave it at that.
