AMERICA FIRST: Matt Gaetz Calls for Non-Interventionist Approach in Venezuela

Published

on

Matt Gaetz takes a non-interventionist stance on Venezuela.

In a tweet Gaetz stated, “We must appreciate that the only sustainable freedom is freedom won by those who yearn to live it. Direct US military involvement risks allowing Maduro to externalize conflict, scapegoat his failures, and delegitimize the organic desire of Venezuelans to choose their own future.”

Interim President Juan Guaidó recently called on the Venezuelan military to stand up against Nicolás Maduro’s government, which has led to mayhem on the streets as the government cracked down on protestors.

In a previous post, BLP covered the Maduro government’s crackdown against civilian protestors.

Gaetz reaffirmed his support for the Venezuelan people, but ruled out military involvement in the country.

Venezuela, a country long hamstrung by socialist policies, has become a geopolitical battle zone for countries such as Russia, China, and the United States.

Although Venezuela has seen better days, the U.S. is tied up in numerous conflicts in the Middle East and is witnessing surging numbers of migrants crossing the border.

Fiscal realities and government priorities make it difficult for the U.S. to take decisive action.

America First advocates like Gaetz understand the importance of freedom, but believe that it should be fought for by the people of countries who are currently living under the shackles of authoritarian governments.

Starbucks Barista FIRED After Refusing to Wear “Pride” T-Shirt for Religious Reasons, According to Lawsuit

She is a Christian and was apparently told by her manager that she didn’t have to wear it.

A former Starbucks barista is filing an unlawful discrimination lawsuit against the coffee giant, claiming they fired her for refusing to wear a “Pride” t-shirt that violated her Christian religious convictions.

Betsy Fresse started working as a barista in December 2015. After transferring to a Glen Ridge, New Jersey, store in early 2019, managers apparently “assured” her that her Christian faith wouldn’t be an issue.

Then in June 2019, she noticed a box of Pride shirts on a desk and asked if they’d make her wear one. Her store manager said she wouldn’t have to, but two months later she found herself out of a job after being terminated by a district manager.

A notice of separation claims that Fresse was fired for violating Starbucks’ “core values.” It specifically mentions an incident where she said her colleagues “need Jesus” when given the “Pride” shirt.

Starbucks maintains that “no part of our dress code requires partners to wear any approved items that they have not personally selected” and that Fresse’s claims are “without merit,” in a comment to the New York Post.

So Starbucks denies that she was fired for not wearing the shirt, yet their notice of separation appears to claim that they fired her for something she said about Jesus. Not a good look either way.

Fresse is seeking backpay, punitive damages, money to cover the cost of an attorney, and a permanent injunction that prevents Starbucks from “failing to accommodate […] sincerely held religious beliefs.”

Starbucks has long been a major player in the world of Woke Capital. Back in February Big League Politics reported on how the British branch of Starbucks was raising money for a pro-transgender lobbying group:

The U.K. branch of Starbucks is raising money to push for the chemical castration and surgical mutilation of children.

Nathanael Blake at The Federalist reported that the multinational titan is selling special mermaid-shaped cookies to help the pro-transgender lobbying group Mermaids. Curiously, the group’s founder took her underage son to Thailand to undergo a castration procedure.

Blake correctly observed “That Starbucks is supporting this group illustrates how thoroughly radicals have conquered both the LGBT movement and corporate culture.”

He also called attention to how “In a few years the fight has shifted from government recognition of same-sex relationships as legal marriages to mastectomies, sterilization, and castration for children.”

Here’s hoping that Betsy Fresse is successful in her lawsuit.
