The Democrats are in full FREAK-OUT mode!
Because a wealthy billionaire — who has supported liberal causes and candidates for decades — is considering to run for president in 2020.
The Democrats must be ecstatic he’s running — right?
Answer: No, they aren’t.
Why you ask?
Answer: Because he is running as an Independent and disagrees with the crazy left on certain issues.
Howard Schultz, the former CEO of Starbucks, is considering running as an Independent candidate for president of the United States. He has a great personal story. He grew up poor in the projects in New York, worked his way through college and then became a billionaire.
He did this by growing a small coffee bean distributor in Seattle into a worldwide coffee shop behemoth. (Starbucks has 30,000 coffee shops in 78 countries.)
His life is a classic example of the “American dream.”
But the leftist mob is outraged!
They are afraid Schultz would split the Democratic vote enough to allow President Trump to win a second term, and he isn’t a far-left LOON!
Last Sunday, on “60 Minutes,” Schultz had the audacity to say that the national debt is a major concern, entitlements must be reformed and single-payer health care would be a disaster. Schultz said, “How are we going to pay for all these things? In terms of things like single-payer or people espousing the fact that the government is going to give everyone a job. I don’t think that’s realistic.”
How dare he use common sense!
A look at Schultz’s record shows he is far from a conservative Republican.
Shultz has donated to the campaigns of Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton and Chuck Schumer, among others. He encouraged baristas to write “Race Together” on Starbucks’ cups — to spark a conversation on racial issues — in the wake of police shootings on black men. He made Starbucks stores a “gun-free zone,” closed 8,000 Starbucks stores for a day of anti-bias training, offered to hire 10,000 refugees after President Trump’s travel ban on people from seven majority Muslim countries and opposed Trump’s tax cuts.
Jeez, Schultz really sounds like the second coming of Ronald Reagan, doesn’t he?
But the Democrats FREAK-OUT mode is in full swing.
The president of the leftist Center for American Progress tweeted, “Vanity projects that help destroy democracy are disgusting. If he enters the race, I will start a Starbucks boycott because I’m not giving a penny that will end up in the election coffers of a guy who will help Trump win.”
Very mature: We don’t like you, so we aren’t going to buy your coffee. Grow up libs!
On Monday, Shultz was shouted down at a Barnes & Noble store by a crazy left loon. The deranged man shouted, “Don’t elect Trump, you egotistical billionaire asshole. Go back to getting ratioed on twitter. Go back to Davos with the other billionaire elite, who think they know how to run the world.”
Oh, yes, I forgot, it’s not acceptable to be a successful rich businessman — you will be immediately stoned by the leftist mob.
Not to be outdone, Buzzfeed did an in-depth report on Starbucks’ racial disparity in the music they have sold. According to Buzzfeed, “The music has been painfully white,” and “a flat and white selection of tunes to offer.” Of the 262 records Starbucks has sold over 21 years, only six were by African American artists.
Oops: He’s not diverse enough.
The real reason the leftist mob don’t like Schultz is that he isn’t a minority, LGBTQ or an outright Socialist. And for that, he must be exiled from the group of misfit toys.
The Iowa caucuses are still a year away, and the leftist mob are attacking each other already.
The left is going to eat their own — it’s going to be fun to watch!
Sit back, order a Grande Breve Latte and enjoy the show!
