Well, well, well.
Looks like going woke not only leads to going broke, but it just may also critically endanger most of the slacktivists working in Starbucks.
After all, quite a few news reports have surfaced regarding nasty messages written on cups for police officers by Starbucks employees.
That is, when Starbucks employees agree to actually serve the police: Some incidents have emerged in which employees don’t bother to serve the police at all.
For “justice” of course.
Well, apparently justice has indeed been served, better late than never.
In a totally unsurprising development, hordes of drugged out criminals have apparently decided to swamp Starbucks locations in Democrat cities, clearly perceiving the company’s message as openly soft on, if not directly encouraging of, crime.
What else would would envision when the company appears to be actively anti-police?
After all, that’s the mindset criminals have.
Alas, the little lefty snowflakes apparently have learned that criminals could care less about “safe spaces” like overpaid collegiate professors do.
Which has led them to freak out and demand a higher degree of safety and protection, which is quite ironic considering their abusive attitude towards police.
Too bad the Democrats in their ivory castles are still on the anti-police train, which leaves Starbucks apparently with no choice but to shut down multiple locations.
Tellingly, all the planned shutdowns are in Democrat-led cities: Seattle, Portland, Los Angeles, and even Washington, D.C.
Oh, the irony …
Starbucks Senior Vice Presidents of U.S. Operations Debbie Stroud and Denise Nelson wrote a messagedetailing their plans for ensuring a safer environment, apparently finally realizing that a super-woke, anti-police business model likely isn’t the greatest idea in the world.
At least if the business is to remain remotely operational, never mind profitable.
“We want you to know that creating a safe, welcoming, and kind third place is our top priority,” the Starbucks executives declared, “Because simply put, we cannot serve as partners if we don’t first feel safe at work. The question on our minds is: How do we continue to show up for our communities while protecting our partners?”
Uh, they could start by actually respecting law-abiding Americans and law enforcement, but that might enrage the college students who procure daily lattes with money they didn’t earn (i.e., student loans, which they undoubtedly expect to be expunged).
The executives go on to note various measures they intend to take to protect employees, directly referencing the intention to close down stores.
The measures that will ostensibly keep employees “safe” include “modifying operations, closing a restroom, or even closing a store permanently, where safety in the third place is no longer possible.”
In other words, ensuring safety in “Defund Police” cities, which is code for Democrat-led, is a virtually impossible task.
After all, what’s to be expected when the police are denigrated and criminals are celebrated?
Humorously, the executives effectively admitted that they were out of their depth near the end of the message, namely by remarking they still have a lot to learn.
“We hear the challenges facing you in stores, and we all have a lot more to still figure out,” the executives added.
Here’s one thing they can “figure out”: Stop turning a business enterprise into a megaphone for ultra-left, ultra-woke policies that run curiously contrary to the company’s enormously overpriced coffee.
Stop abusing police officers who risk their lives day in and day out, oftentimes for individuals who have no respect for them, as evidenced by their social media slacktivism, achieved safely from the confines of their student debt-funded dorm rooms.
Student debt that Biden will likely magically erase just in time for the midterms, assuming Fauci’s fresh fear mongering falls through.
In the meantime, seems that woke businesses are learning (the hard way) that they probably shouldn’t kowtow to criminals.
Maybe that will get Kamala in the White House, but it sure won’t help improve the bottom line … especially with a recession looming.
