Starbucks loses favor with Americans after announcement to hire 10,000 refugees

On January 26, 2017, in the interest of national security to prevent terrorists posing as refugees from entering the U.S., President Trump signed an executive order that temporarily imposed a visa ban on citizens from seven Muslim-majority countries.

To counteract President Trump’s policy, on January 29, 2017, Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz sent out a company-wide letter announcing that Starbucks plans to hire 10,000 refugees. See DCG’s post on this, here.

Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz

Actions have consequences.

Schultz’s announcement immediately sparked a #BoycottStarbucks movement on Twitter and brought condemnation from coast to coast. Many Americans wondered why Starbucks is hiring refugees instead of Americans — especially U.S. military veterans.

Breitbart reports that a YouGov survey found that after Starbucks’ hire-refugees announcement, its brand name lost favor with customers. Perception levels of the Starbucks brand name fell by an incredible two-thirds since January:

  • Before the company’s refugees hiring announcement, 30% of respondents said they would consider spending money at Starbucks.
  • After the hire-refugees announcement, only 24% of respondents said they would patronize Starbucks.

Below is a chart (from Yahoo! Finance) showing how Starbucks stock value plummeted after CEO Schultz’s announcement on January 29 of hiring 10,000 refugees.

Keep up the boycott!

Fake Anti-Semitism: Black-racist Bernie-voter made bomb threats to Jewish groups to make ex-girlfriend look bad

Of late, there has been a rash of seemingly anti-Semitic incidents. Threats were made to Jewish community centers and schools. A Jewish cemetery in St. Louis was vandalized; another Jewish cemetery in Philadelphia had about 100 headstones toppled.

Notwithstanding President Trump’s condemnation of the threats and vandalism and despite the lack of any evidence of culpability on the part of Trump supporters, he is accused of being at least indirectly responsible for the surge in anti-Jewish sentiment because Trump’s alleged “polarizing rhetoric” allegedly “emboldens” anti-Semitic white-supremacist groups.

Now we have solid evidence that an anti-Trump, anti-white black racist,  Bernie Sanders voter is the individual who made bomb threats against Jewish organizations across America.

Reuters reports that on March 3, 2017, disgraced former journalist Juan Thompson, 31, was arrested in St. Louis for making a wave of bomb threats to Jewish organizations, the first case to emerge from a federal investigation into a surge of threats against Jewish Community Centers (JCCs) and schools that has rattled American Jews. The hoax threats against JCCs have stoked fears of a resurgence in anti-Semitism and forced the evacuation of many centers, including some with day care for young children.

In a criminal complaint filed in federal court in Manhattan, authorities accused Thompson of making at least eight threats, mostly by email, against Jewish organizations, including a Jewish museum in New York and the Anti-Defamation League (ADL). Thompson made the threats pretending to be an ex-girlfriend, whom he calls “nasty racist white girl” in his tweets, in retaliation for breaking up with him. In other words, Thompson made those “anti-Semitic” threats to make the ex-girlfriend look bad.

Federal prosecutors described a vicious, months-long harassment campaign in which Thompson allegedly used fake email accounts to accuse his former girlfriend of possessing child pornography, driving drunk and, finally, making bomb threats targeting Jewish groups.

Thompson was a reporter for the news website Intercept, until he was fired last year for allegedly inventing sources and quotes.

Thompson made an initial appearance on Friday in U.S. court in St. Louis on one count of cyber stalking, where a judge ordered that he remain in federal custody. He is likely to be extradited to New York to face prosecution.

Authorities are still investigating the JCC threats as well as the desecration of headstones at Jewish cemeteries in Philadelphia, St. Louis and Rochester, New York. St. Louis police will question Thompson about the graveyard vandalism.

Juan Thompson’s tweets @JuanMThompson show him to be an individual who is profoundly alienated from America. Thompson is an anti-white racist, anti-Trump, anti-police, anti-capitalist, in favor of abuse of food-stamps welfare, anti-Hillary Clinton, and a Bernie Sanders voter. Below are some of his tweets:

  • “The white media is repulsive” – Feb. 27
  • “The #Oscars are fucking and toying with black ppl like America has done for centuries. White folk are trash” – Feb. 26
  • “God, I want to be Talib when I grow up. He gives absolutely no fucks about these nasty ass racist white folk.” – Feb. 22
  • “White folk are trash. Absolute trash. All of you.” – Feb. 18
  • “Trump isn’t attending the White Correspondents Dinner, also, b/c he’s a coward who can’t take ppl making fun of him.” – Feb. 25
  • On Chicago’s unending violence and homicides: “Make no mistake. Trump is a developer. This is his and the white establishment’s effort to remove black ppl from the southside of Chicago.” – Feb. 23 
  • “Donald Trump is the perfect example of how dumb, incompetent wealthy white ppl can fail upward.” – Feb. 14 
  • Retweeted “Fuck all police.” – Feb. 22
  • Retweeted “you can’t have capitalism without racism” – malcolm x” – Feb. 21 
  • “My family was on food stamps and we actually ate steaks and escargot. Surf and turf all the way.” – Feb. 22
  • “Fuck you HRC [Hillary Rodham Clinton]. You attacked universal healthcare in 16. You’re such a phony ass white woman liberal.” – Feb. 18
  • juan-thompson-tweet (source)

Thompson’s tweets also prove that President Trump was right and really quite prescient about at least some of the threats made against Jewish groups.

On February 28, 2017, Trump reportedly said the bomb threats and the destruction of gravestones in Jewish cemeteries may not be acts of anti-Semitism, but “the reverse, to make people, or to make others, look bad.” For that — for suggesting that attacks against Jews may be fake anti-Semitism, i.e., “false flag” or contrived incidents — Trump once again was vilified by the MSM.

It turns out that, at least in the case of the bomb threats made by Juan Thompson, President Trump was right. Pretending to be his ex-girlfriend, Thompson made those threats, not because of anti-Semitism, but because he wanted to make his ex-girlfriend “look bad”.

‘Rogue One’ Star Riz Ahmed Says Lack of Diversity on TV Can Push People Towards ISIS

riz-ahmed

Who knew that this 34-year-old actor and rapper had the solution to fighting radical Islamic terrorism? I’m sure Mad Dog Mattis will be all over this fascinating solution.

From Hollywood Reporter: Riz Ahmed, who saw his international star soar in 2016 thanks to major roles in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, Jason Bourne and HBO’s The Night Of, has warned that a lack of diverse voices and stories on British TV screens could push those from minority backgrounds towards fringe groups and even extremism.

Delivering the annual diversity lecture from U.K. network Channel 4 in British Parliament, the actor – who has used his growing celebrity status to eloquently highlight issues concerning race and racial profiling – said that U.K. TV had so far “failed” to ensure groups felt represented.

“If we fail to represent, we are in danger of losing people to extremism,” he said, adding it would lead those from minority backgrounds to “switch off and retreat to fringe narratives, to bubbles online and sometimes even off to Syria.”

Echoing the lecture given by Idris Elba last year, Ahmed said that actors from diverse backgrounds were forced to head across the Atlantic to find decent roles. “We end up going to America to find work. I meet with producers and directors here, and they say ‘we don’t have anything for you, all our stories are set in Cornwall in the 1600s’.”

Speaking to The Hollywood Reporter last year, the actor expressed his own desire to directly address the situation, saying he was planning a series about three generations of a British-Pakistani family, which he would direct himself.

“If we don’t step up and tell a representative story … we are going to start losing British teenagers to the story that the next chapter in their lives is written with ISIS in Syria,” he told Parliament. “We are going to see the murder of more [members of parliament] like Jo Cox because we’ve been mis-sold a story that is so narrow about who we are and who we should be.”

Ahmed’s lecture came the same day the BBC revealed the results of a staff census into diversity, showing that 14.5 percent of its workforce was from black, Asian or minority ethnic backgrounds. The public broadcaster is aiming for this figure to reach 15 percent by 2020.

Muslim “human rights activist” to Le Pen: “I am going to slit your throat Muslim-style”

marine-le-pen-death-threat-blogger-mehdi-meklat-threatened-kill-770823

It was just words of his “fictional character.” Um, yeah, riiiiiiiight.

From Express UK: For years, Mehdi Meklat, a 24-year-old human rights activist and former Bondy Blog journalist – who, until last week, was hailed as one of France’s rising media stars – published “sickening” tweets under the pseudonym ‘Marcelin Deschamps’, a “provocative” but “fictional” character who, according to the young writer, “does not reflect his personal beliefs, values and morals”.

On Twitter, Mr. Meklat – writing as Marcelin Deschamps – threatened to kill Marine Le Pen. He wrote: “I am going to slit your throat Muslim-style.”

The journalist is also guilty of apologising terrorism and anti-Semitism: hiding behind his ‘fictional’ character, he praised Islamic terrorist Mohammed Merah, said that he “really missed Osama bin Laden” and that we should “bring back Hitler”.

He also said that he wanted to “rape” former Charlie Hebdo editor-in-chief, Charb – one of the victims of the January 2015 terrorist attacks – with a “Laguiole knife”.

On Saturday, Mr. Meklat cleaned his Twitter account – he went from 50,000 to 503 tweets – and issued a public apology, branding his hateful tweets as “obsolete” and “irrelevant”.

He tweeted: “I’m sorry if some of you were shocked by my tweets. They are obsolete… The words of my fictional character do not reflect my own personal thoughts and beliefs, quite the opposite. Via Marcelin Deschamps, a provocative character, I was trying to encourage critical thinking.”

His apology, however, has largely fallen on deaf ears.

On Sunday, Marion Marechal Le Pen, Mrs. Le Pen’s niece, tweeted: “Praising Merah, threats, homophobia, hate and anti-Semitism. Why is the press protecting @mehdi_meklat?”

Members of the Printemps républicain, a left-wing organisation explicitly formed to promote and protect secularism in France, bitterly condemned Mr. Meklat’s tweets in a press release and said that, had he been a member of France’s far-right, he would have been excoriated and denounced by the press “a very long time ago”.

They wrote: “For years, Mr. Meklat published racist, sexist and hate-filled tweets. And yet, editors and newspapers continued to hire and support him. If a far-right journalist had tweeted what Mr. Meklat tweeted, he would have been lynched by the press and would probably have ended up in court.”

Fort Hood jihadist shooter Nidal Hassan is ‘gay’ and wants a sex-change operation

Nidal Malik Hasan, 46, an American-born Muslim of Palestinian heritage, is the former Army Medical Corps psychiatrist and jihadist who fatally shot 13 people and injured more than 30 others in the Fort Hood mass shooting on November 5, 2009, for which he was convicted in a court martial and sentenced to death. He is incarcerated and awaiting execution at Fort Leavenworth Disciplinary Barracks while his case is reviewed by appellate courts.

In letters to the National Enquirer, Hasan reveals he’s a homosexual transgender, and wants a sex change operation, on the taxpayer’s dime of course.

nidal-hassan

J.R. Taylor reports for The National Enquirer, Feb. 23, 2017, that in his letters, Hasan expressed no regrets for his shooting massacre. He said he was upset at the deployment of troops to Afghanistan and at a homosexual lover for ditching him.

According to The Enquirer, Hasan’s lover may have been an Islamic convert who worshiped at the Islamic Community of Greater Killeen that Hasan frequented. “Hasan claimed he was instructing the young man on Islam, but the rumor at the mosque was that he was in love with him,” an insider said.

In the letters, Hasan complained about his living conditions and his physical well-being from being shot five times by civilian police officer Sgt. Mark Todd who helped to end the Fort Hood carnage. Hasan whined that “I’m in solitary confinement. I’m also a paraplegic!”

Hasan also said he wants a sex-change operation: “I am trying slowly to change my ways into a woman who the Creator would be proud of. I’m trying to be a devout servant of God in an ungodly world. We need to do the best we can with the cards we’re dealt and what we did to ourselves.”

A military veteran told The Enquirer: “It’s quite ironic. He wants to be a woman — but it takes massive cojones to demand that taxpayers foot the bill!”

Angela Merkel says Europe must take more refugees and Islam ‘isn’t source of terror’

merkel muslim

Earlier this month, Angela Merkel stated that Germany will offer cash handouts worth millions of pounds for migrants to leave Germany in an effort to silence criticism of her ‘open-door’ border policy. Now this? Proggies…they can never be consistent.

From Daily Star UK: The embattled leader says Europe has an obligation to take displaced people from Syria and Iraq. 

She also said Islam “is not the cause of terrorism” and that combatting extremism needs the cooperation of Muslim countries.

In a wide-ranging speech at a Munich security conference, the German chief also vowed to work closely with Vladimir Putin’s Russia in the fight with ISIS in the Middle East.

Mrs. Merkel has come under fire for taking in up to one million refugees amid security concerns and a string of migrant sex attacks across Germany.

After the Berlin lorry attack at a Christmas market in December, ex-UKIP leader Nigel Farage said events such as that will be “Merkel’s legacy”.

Mrs. Merkel had been a strong critic of Brexit, saying she had “deep regrets” about it. She will go to the polls in September against Social Democrat candidate Martin Schulz, the former European Parliament President.

On Putin, she said Europe’s ties with Russia remained challenging, but it was important to work with them in the fight against Islamist terrorism. She said: “The joint fight against Islamic terrorism is one area where we have the same interests and we can work together.”

Her comments about Islam and refugees follow her criticism of Donald Trump’s travel ban on people from seven Muslim-majority countries.

New US Vice-President Mike Pence was in the audience and reaffirmed the US’ commitment to NATO in a speech of his own.

Germany is under increasing pressure to increase military spending, would do “everything possible” meet a NATO target for spending two percent of economic output on defence by 2024, Merkel told the conference.

Only last week, a student was dragged into woods and raped by a migrant who spoke no English near the campus of Bochum University.

David Horowitz Brilliantly Exposes Muslim Student’s True Intentions – UC San Diego

This student provides the perfect representation of Muslim perspectives.

From the UC San Diego Muslim Student Association (MSA) web page:

“MSA at UCSD was formed when students of Muslim culture and heritage formed the group to meet the specific needs of the underrepresented Muslim students, staff, and faculty, studying, working, and teaching at UCSD. Years later, under a much changed structure and membership, MSA at UCSD still serves the Muslim community with the same goals of minimizing under-representation and misrepresentation of our community

Recognizing that Muslims and those living in predominantly Muslim countries share a common heritage, MSA at UCSD strives to serve and represent these persons at the UCSD campus through educational, cultural, and social programs and activities. MSA at UCSD provides a social and cultural outlet for members of the Muslim community. Furthermore, recognizing that Muslims and their history, culture, and institutions are often misrepresented or dehumanized by orientalism and mainstream media sources, MSA at UCSD strives to increase the representation of Muslim perspectives at all levels of society, specifically at the university and stresses the fair and objective study of Islam through its programs and activities.”
