Starbucks CEO says ‘violence against people who are not white cannot stand.’ And if you’re white?

The CEO of Starbucks has shown his true leftist colors again. This time by insulting white people.

In a tweet sent out by the coffee giant following the riots in Charlottesville, the CEO, Howard Schultz, put the onus entirely on white people.

“I know we’re better than this. The bigotry, hatred, and senseless violence against people who are not white cannot stand,” he said.

Where was Howard Schultz when a Black Lives Matter supporter, Micah Johnson, killed five police officers in Dallas?

When black nationalist Ismaaiyl Brinsley assassinated two New York Police Department officers, Wenjian Liu and Rafael Ramos, was Schultz heard from?

Did anyone see a statement from Schultz when another Black Lives Matter supporter, Gavin Long, murdered 3 police officers in Baton Rouge, Louisiana?

Or last month when another supporter of the movement, Alexander Bonds, murdered NYPD Officer Miosotis Familia.

He has remained silent as Antifa protesters forced President Trump’s campaign rally in Chicago to be cancelled and when conservatives were violently assaulted on college campuses by similar far-left activists.

It’s not that Schultz’s message is incorrect.

Racist violence by white supremacists against non-white people is horrid and ought to be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.

The issue is that his message is disingenuous – or in this case, telling.

All violence ought to be condemned. Not only violence that it is politically expedient for one side to condemn.

It also ignores the fact that there were people counter protesting the white supremacists in Charlottesville that were also engaging in violence.

The truth is that this is not a surprise coming from the company that has made it known that it does not want the business of conservatives.

It made that fact known when it declared it didn’t want the investments of shareholders who believe in traditional marriage.

And when the company responded to President Donald Trump’s travel ban by vowing to hire thousands of refugees.

Many on social media made their anger at his newest statement clear.

Starbucks defended itself, but people were not believing it.
