Over the last few weeks we have all been subject to the fear and panic narrative that the establishment media is weaving concerning the Wuhan Virus.
“75,000 ill, 2,000 deaths, many thousands recovered: Can you get coronavirus twice?” writes John Bacon of USA Today
“Coronavirus cases top 60,000 as death toll spikes.” –CBS News
“U.S. stocks dive more than 7% as oil war and coronavirus fears slam markets” reports James F. Peltz of the LA Times
“Coronavirus death toll passes 4,000 worldwide.” – CNN News
“Coronavirus death rate: What are the chances of dying? – Robert Cuffe of the BBC News
“While the world deals with the coronavirus, Trump glorifies himself on Twitter.” – Eugene Robinson at the Washington Post
“Supermarkets fear supply-chain shortages as coronavirus spreads.” –Brain Pascus at Crains New York
These are just a few examples of the fear and panic narrative of the establishment media, not to mention how the twenty four hour a day news channels of CNN, Fox News, and MSNBC are pushing the narrative in what seems like every other story they are reporting on.
But does the media hype match the current reality or are they simply displaying their hypocrisy?
According to the latest reporting there have been seven hundred and fifty four reported cases of the Wuhan Virus in the United States with twenty eight deaths. During the same period of time in America around eighteen thousand people have died of Influenza, nine thousand one hundred people have overdosed on heroin, eleven hundred and ninety American military veterans have committed suicide, and approximately two hundred thousand babies have been aborted.
An objective view would indicate at best that the establishment media has been complacent in their coverage of the reality of the Wuhan Virus in America, and at worst they have been a partner along side of Communist China in pushing economic and emotional panic on the American populace.
In the end it appears that the media hype about the Wuhan Virus is spreading faster than the virus itself.
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.
