After Years of Lobbying, Starbucks STILL Hasn’t Banned Child Porn from Its WiFi Networks

Published

on

For more than four years, a non-profit has been leaning on Starbucks to block illicit content, including child pornography, from its public WiFi inside its stores without success.

“We started the ‘Safe WiFi’ campaign a number of years ago, and we asked Starbucks and McDonald’ to lead corporate America to voluntarily filter their public WiFi from two types of content – pornography, and child pornography,” said Enough is Enough founder Donna Rice Hughes in an interview with Dr. James Dobson’s Family Talk.

Enough is Enough is described as the “national leader on the front lines of making the Internet safer for children and families.” Founded in 1994, it “has pioneered and led the effort to confront online pornography, child pornography, child stalking and sexual predation with innovative initiatives and effective communications.”

According to Hughes, McDonald’s is filtering such content in 14,000 of its stores. Starbucks, though, formerly led by potential presidential candidate Howard Schultz, has yet to act despite four years of lobbying from the group.

“Starbucks, however, made a promise two and a half years ago, based on our efforts, that they would begin filtering,” Hughes said. “However, two and a half years passed and they did not keep their promise.”

Why would Starbucks allow such content to go unfiltered in more than 14,500 stores nationwide? The answer is anyone’s guess. But Enough is Enough is still fighting.

“We decided after working behind the scenes with them and WiFi providers to turn up the heat, just recently,” Hughes said. “We did a press release, and within 24 hours the media got behind our effort, and Starbucks agreed to begin filtering in Starbucks’ nationally in 2019. But this time, we are holding our applause, and we are asking people to sign that we have at Enough.org, because we’re going to keep the heat on Starbucks this time until they actually follow through on their promise.”

Hughes and her organization, though, still have not been able to get Starbucks to budge.

“We have identified a solution to prevent this content from being viewed within our stores and we will begin introducing it to our U.S. locations in 2019,” the company told NBC in late 2018.

Hughes told NBC that Starbucks sent her a letter telling her that they will begin filtering such content “once we determine that our customers can access our free WiFi in a way that also doesn’t involuntarily block unintended content.”

BLM Activist Wearing “Justice for Breonna Taylor” T-Shirt Shoots, Kills Three People in Bar Owned by Louisville Ex-Cop

A man wearing a “Justice for Breonna Taylor” t-shirt allegedly shot and killed three people at a Louisville, Kentucky bar owned by a retired police officer on Friday night.

33-year old Michael E. Rynes was arrested by Louisville police on Friday after the mass shooting event, in which he allegedly shot three people at random at Bungalow Joe’s Bar and Grill. They all died of their injuries.

Eyewitness accounts describe Rynes as wearing a ‘Justice for Breonna Taylor’ t-shirt when he entered the establishment and began shooting.

Rynes would be arrested by Louisville Police hours after the shooting while hiding in a bush near Bungalow Joe’s. He matched the description given in initial 911 calls regarding the shooting, and possessed a firearm with ammunition used at the bar shooting. The 33-year old Rynes, whose social media contains content expressing his support for left-wing BLM causes and NFL anthem kneeling, was arrested and charged with three counts of murder for his alleged involvement in the shootings.

Rynes was seen smiling in photography of his arrest hours after the bar shooting.

Taylor was a Louisville woman who was shot and killed by police earlier this year during an operation in which they were seeking to apprehend her drug dealer boyfriend. Progressive and BLM activists have sought to publicize the controversial shooting-which remains under investigation by the Kentucky Attorney General- as an alternative to the incidences involving Jacob Blake and George Floyd, both of whom had extensive criminal histories when they resisted arrest for crimes.

Nobody had ever seen this guy before,Said restaurant owner and retired law enforcement officer Joe Bishop, referring to the shooter. “It was a totally random act.

26-year old Toreon Hudson, 48-year old William Smallwood, and 24-year old Steven Head were killed in Rynes alleged shooting rampage. Two of the murder victims were white, and one was black.

This appears to be the latest Black Lives Matter mass shooting, following Micah Xavier’s mass shooting of five Dallas, Texas police officers in 2016. Peculiar that the corporate media has largely ignored the mass casualty event while devoting hours of coverage to the controversial Taylor shooting, which remains under official investigation.
