More liberal left hysteria, moving towards fascism, as the hate for Trump is leading prominent public figures to call on their followers to stop Trump by any means necessary.
For the radical left, the violence and hate they practice against anyone and everyone who disagrees with their neo-liberal dogma is justified. Trump represents a conservative force that stands in the way of open borders, open bathrooms, and gender fluidity…and if need be, than a totalitarian state is needed in order to suppress Trumpism.
Following on the heels of CNN Host Kathy Griffin’s mock Trump beheading, founder and ex-Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz told Starbucks workers that Trump is creating ‘chaos’ that is impacting the economy in leaked video.
In a leaked video obtained by Business Insider, Schultz said told the company’s support staff in Seattle in February.
“The world is screwed up. People are unsettled.”
“There is a tremendous amount of pressure and anxiety in America.”
“We have a president that is creating episodic chaos every single day, and that is no doubt affecting consumer behavior.”
Schultz said he believed Starbucks was perhaps uniquely positioned to thrive in Trump’s “chaos”…
“We have an antidote.”
“We always have. And that’s the sense of community, the third place, and the environment that we create around family.”
Schultz, who stepped down as Starbucks’ CEO in April, has been an outspoken critic of Trump’s policies.
In January, Starbucks pledged to hire 10,000 refugees after Trump issued an executive order banning refugees from entering the US. At the time, Schultz penned an open letter that said the American dream had been “called into question.” Previously, Schultz had endorsed Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton for president.
“I think it’s obvious that Hillary Clinton needs to be the next president,” Schultz said in an interview with CNN’s Poppy Harlow in September. “On the other side, we’ve seen such vitriolic display of bigotry and hate and divisiveness, and that is not the leadership we need for the future of the country.”
In December, Schultz said in an interview with CNBC that he did not believe “that Starbucks or the brand is at odds with Trump or his supporters” on any level.
