If you are fed up with the liberal nonsense spewed out by CEOs of companies such as Starbucks, boycotting their firms is a reasonable action to take. With regard to Starbucks, coffee is not that complicated of a product, and there are many good alternatives. So finding another place to buy coffee is not a difficult project.
The focus right now is on Starbucks whose CEO has decided to make an issue out of immigration. As a dedicated liberal, he has chosen to use his platform as CEO of a well-known business to take on the president and his policies. Here’s what it looks like.
This issue has been brought forward as, “A number of companies have come out publicly against Donald Trump’s executive order implementing a temporary travel ban on seven nations, among them being Google, Apple, Lyft, Netflix, and Starbucks, among many, many others.” Some of these businesses are easy to avoid – others not so much. We each do what we can.
In response to President Trump’s temporary ban on travel from seven predominately Muslim nations, “Starbucks announced they’ll be hiring 10,000 refugees over the next five years in the 75 countries where Starbucks operates.” One interesting point is that, “Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz has yet to comment on how he feels that as a Jewish man, he’s permanently banned from traveling to six of the seven nations included on Trump’s 90-day travel ban.” Typical liberal hypocrisy.
The good news is that, while it’s a very small company, one of Starbucks’ hopefully future competitors has decided to respond by pledging to help Americans – American veterans, to be exact.
“Following Starbucks’ announcement about their refugee hiring plan, Black Rifle announced on a social media channel, ‘Black Rifle Coffee Vows to Hire 10,000 Veterans.’ While BRCC is unlikely to have a need for 10,000 new employees this year, the commitment to hiring veterans is not new and has been a bedrock of their hiring practices since Evan founded the company, ‘Black Rifle Coffee has [always] vowed to hire Veterans and Patriots, we didn’t adopt this vow on the heels of anything to drive a bullsh*t touchy feely false sales projection!'”
With only 50 employees, Black Rifle Coffee has a lot of growing to do to fulfill its pledge of hiring 10,000 veterans. Of course, history is filled with companies that started out small and became household names.
Hopefully we’ll see the day when Black Rifle shops are more common than Starbucks. After all, if you’re not going to shop at Starbucks, you do have to get your coffee from somewhere, right?
