Twitter co-founder and CEO Jack Dorsey has promised to donate $1 billion “to fund global COVID-19 relief,” and promote progressive hobby horses such as population control.
“After we disarm this pandemic, the focus will shift to girl’s [sic] health and education, and UBI,” Dorsey Tweeted on April 7. UBI refers to a Universal Basic Income.
In a separate tweet, Dorsey stated that girls’ health and education “represent the best long-term solutions to the existential problems facing the world. UBI is a great idea needing experimentation. Girl’s [sic] health and education is [sic] critical to balance.”
Dorsey then posted about a website called Project Drawdown. That website has talking points regarding “family planning” and “population growth.”
Educating girls, Project Drawdown contends, “is one of the most powerful levers available for avoiding emissions by curbing population growth.” Women with higher levels of education “have fewer and healthier children, and actively manage their reproductive health.”
Project Drawdown is clearly scared about “population growth,” but researchers such as Steven W. Mosher and Anne Roback Morse made the case back in 2013 that overpopulation is a myth.
On the topic of food shortages, the two authors argued that “the world currently produces enough food to feed 10 billion people, and there are only 7 billion of us. That is, with 7 billion human minds at work, we produce enough food for 10 billion human bodies. Imagine how much food we can produce with 10 billion minds!”
Furthermore, they broke down how the current water supply can satisfy the needs of everyone living on Earth. “In other words, we need more dams, canals, and pipelines, not more abortion, contraception and sterilizations,” Mosher and Morse explained.
On the issue of family planning, Project Drawdown declares it “would have powerful positive impacts on the health, welfare, and life expectancy of both women and their children. It also can affect greenhouse gas emissions.”
The website contends that hundreds of millions of women “lack the necessary access to contraception.” It claims that family planning honors “the dignity of women and children.”
Project Drawdown’s endgame is not to help women, but “to help the world reach ‘Drawdown’ — the future point in time when levels of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere stop climbing and start to steadily decline.”
Dorsey, like many Big Tech oligarchs, has a history of pushing PC causes.
LifeSite News pointed out that “Jack Dorsey validated concerns that Twitter censors users on the basis of his own progressive political views, for instance by banning users who were ‘misgendering’ others.”
In addition, LifeSiteNews’s “Twitter account was silenced in December 2019 based on demands from Jonathan “Jessica” Yaniv, a radical transgender activist who objected to the website’s scrutiny of his public actions. To this day, LifeSite’s Twitter account has not been unlocked.”
People can track Jack Dorsey’s donations on Google Sheets.
One thing that LifeSite News calls to attention to is that the “money will come from Dorsey’s shares not of Twitter, but of Square, a mobile payment company co-founded by him in 2009. In 2013, Square made headlines for banning sales of ‘firearms, firearm parts or hardware, and ammunition; or … weapons and other devices designed to cause physical injury.’”
Dorsey is part of a corporate class that does not care about traditional American freedoms and values.
Such individuals cannot be trusted to uphold American traditions.
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.
