An executive of Dunkin’ Brands, the parent company of coffee shop chain Dunkin’ Donuts and ice cream chain Baskin Robbins, refused to make selling morning goodies and evening treats political Monday.
“We are not Starbucks, we aren’t political,” Dunkin’ VP of product Drayton Martin reportedly said at the 2019 International Trademark Association meeting.
Starbucks has a history of designing cups to start cultural and political conversations, and has been known to bend a knee to the social justice mob.
“We don’t want to engage you in political conversation, we want to get you in and out of our store in seconds. It’s donuts & ice cream – just be happy,” Martin said.
Her statements were confirmed by numerous attendees via Twitter.
“Dunkin isn’t Starbucks, they don’t want to start a conversation on their cups. They want you in and out in a minute and twenty seconds. Have conversations with your friends; Dunkin isn’t your friend. (This is such a New England attitude, I love it.),” attendee Stacey Lantagne said.

Starbucks, on the other hand, prides itself on its involvement in leftist politics. It put its employees through “racial bias” training last year, closing hundreds of corporate stores for an entire day.
Big League Politics reported:
In a move that is sure to enrage shareholders, Starbucks is closing all of its company-owned stores on May 29 to teach it employees “racial bias training.”
The company said that the training will address implicit racial bias in hopes of preventing discrimination.
The announcement follows negative press garnered by the company after two black men were arrested for sitting inside a Philadelphia store without purchasing anything.
But, as Big League Politics reported, the allegations of racial discrimination against the company are unfounded. The men were trespassing, were asked to leave, and refused. Only then were the police called.
The Philadelphia Police Commissioner, who is black, backed his officers, saying that they carried out their legal duty with professionalism. Worth noting, the Chief of Police in Philadelphia is Charles H. Ramsey, also a black man.

Brown University Cultural Leftists Demand Destruction of Classical Roman Emperor Statues on Campus
They hate western civilization.
Left-wing racial ideologues at Brown University in Rhode Island are demanding that the school destroy two classical statues of iconic Roman emperors, claiming that the works of art represent “white supremacy.”
Amanda Brynn, Justin Han, Sam Kimball, Junaid Malik, Olivia Mayeda, and Kelley Tackett, six undergraduate students affiliated with “Decolonization at Brown,” are demanding that the school destroy two classical-style statues of Roman emperors Augustus Caesar and Marcus Aurelius.
They claim in a blog post that the statues “were brought to our campus with the goals of upholding the ideal of the ‘perfect’ white form, white civilization, white supremacy and colonialism — ideas that we believe are incompatible with Brown today.”
“This is not just about monuments. It is also about the kinds of people and histories that students at Brown today are taught to idealize.”
They’re demanding that the classical statues, which appear to be replicas of famous Renaissance and ancient art, be replaced with pieces created by “artists of color.”
Marcus Aurelius was Roman emperor in the 2nd century in an era of peace and prosperity for the ancient civilization, and is known for documenting the philosophy of stoicism in literature that has been studied for millennia.
Ironically, classical-style statues have been targeted for destruction on cultural grounds before. The Vandals, a Germanic tribe that warred with the Roman Empire in its era of decline, associated their name with property damage and barbaric behavior through their frequent destruction of cultural statues.
The stringent ideologues detest the glories of western civilization, and would destroy the cultural inheritance of the American legacy before it is passed to future generations. Their own liberal fanaticism will fade from history as an uncreative and empty religion, whereas the legacies of great men will endure.
