Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz is waging war on Donald Trump’s policies designed to keep America safe. Schultz announced over the weekend that in the next five years his liberal coffee corporation will hire at least 10,000 refugees at stores around the world.
On the face of it such an announcement seems harmless and innocent, right? But in a memo Schultz published we see some glaring hypocrisy.
“We have a long history of hiring young people looking for opportunities and a pathway to a new life around the world,” Schultz wrote. “This is why we are doubling down on this commitment by working with our equity market employees as well as joint venture and licensed market partners in a concerted effort to welcome and seek opportunities for those fleeing war, violence, persecution and discrimination.”
What Shultz doesn’t mention is that he was a cheerleader for Barack Obama’s foreign policy. Yes, the same foreign policy that actually started many wars in the Middle East. The same Barack Obama that had the United States at war literally every day he was in office.
Barack Obama’s Middle East policies are exactly what caused much of the refugee crisis. Where was Schultz when Obama was bombing innocent people in the Middle East? Where was he when Obama’s policies devastated countries like Libya?
Does Shultz not understand that what Obama did in Libya is what created ISIS? The same ISIS that is now running rampant in the Middle East, causing the very refugee crisis Schultz is now playing PC tunes to?
See this is the problem with the liberal left. They champion big government policies that create crisis. Then they trot along trying to play the superhero with solutions they claim will solve the very crisis their policies created.
Hey Schultz, why don’t you join the side of Americans trying to prevent these kinds of crisis from ever happening in the first place? That way you wouldn’t have to play politics with your company and we wouldn’t have people running from wars.
