Although Iowa is generally not seen as diverse to Democrats, one city, West Liberty, stands out.
The school district in this city is one of the few with a majority minority population. According to the Iowa Department of Education, 55 percent of public school students were Hispanic.
For two residents of West Liberty, Sylvia Gutierrez and her boyfriend, Kevin Fernandez, immigration is a major issue, among others, that got them to support Sanders.
“I like his health care plan and his immigration plan,” Fernandez, expressing his discontent with how migrant families at the Mexico border have been treated. “We’re a big country, we should be able to help people out.”
142 people were in attendance at the caucus precinct in the West Liberty Community Center, where Sanders was able to pick up five delegates.
According to The Gazette, “Sanders had the clear bulk of support from the Latino community in the room, many of them caucusing for the first time.”
California Assembly member Ash Kalra sang praise about Sanders’ strong Hispanic support in Iowa.
He tweeted, “In a mostly Latino caucus site with 185 voters, “@berniesanders wins 94% of the vote! Here’s the Sanders precinct captain going through the process of selecting the 9 delegates for the campaign they have earned with the big win. ¡Sí se puede! #NotMeUs #UnidosConBernie”
Based on multiple decades of voting trends, it is no surprise why Hispanics are gravitating toward Sanders, the most economically progressive of all candidates.
Many of the post-1965 Immigration Act migrants hail from countries with notorious levels of corruption and are largely acclimated to despotism and government overreach. A candidate like Sanders fits their voter profile almost perfectly.
For that reason, Trump must put severe forms of immigration restriction in place in order to prevent the U.S. from importing a new electorate that could radically transform American institutions.
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.
